** [[spoiler:To top it off, Naruto is the latest in a long line of reincarnations of the Rikudou Sennin's younger son -- the reincarnation of the older son of his generation being Sasuke. As if that weren't enough, it turns that their previous incarnations were Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha respectively, meaning that Naruto is technically the reincarnation of the ''First Hokage''.]]

Though reincarnation works somewhat differently in the Naruto-verse, as it's the chakra pattern rather than the actual soul that gets reincarnated. Hence (temporarily) resurrected versions of Hashirama and Madara being able to interact with Naruto and Sasuke.]]

* ''MagicKaito'' is about the main character finding out about his father's secret identity and taking up the mantle. In aversion of the normal plot, the reason this was kept from him isn't any of the usual reasons, it's that the identity is that of a gentleman-thief, and so everyone keeps it a secret. His mother even knows, and is completely accepting of him taking up his father's mantle, even though it eventually got his father killed. He even has the rest of his father's support network working with him and some of them don't even know it's a different person now. Further complicating it, his best friend and love interest hate his secret identity, and her father is the police chief in charge of catching him.

* The final episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' reveals that ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' hero, Terry [=McGinnis=] is actually [[spoiler: the genetic son of Bruce Wayne as part of a secret experiment by a government group to create a new Batman. Basically, they gave Warren [=McGinnis=] an injection that replaced his reproductive material (and thus DNA) with Bruce Wayne's. Then again, it's rather a subversion: the program was called off before the defining moment of Bruce's life could be recreated. Terry ended up becoming Batman all on his own, mostly through coincidence, wholly independent of his genetic heritage.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'': In the earliest version of the story, Clark knew that the Kents had found him in a rocket ship, but had no idea where the ship came from, nor any inkling of the heroic legacy of his father, the original Jor-El. During the SilverAge, Kal-El came to Earth as a toddler and had total recall of his days on Krypton. In the Christopher Reeve movies, the Timm/Dini animated series, ''{{Smallville}}'', and the PostCrisis {{Ret Con}}s, he didn't even know about the ''space ship'' until his powers developed to the point where his adopted parents couldn't just dismiss them any more.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', neither Nanase nor Tedd knew that Tedd's mother, also Nanase's aunt, was "A legendary monster hunter with a long family history of fighting monsters and evil wizards," until Agent Wolf [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1690 accidentally let it slip to Nanase.]] Nanase's mother is fully aware of both this, and Nanase's own magic abilities, but deliberately keeps it a secret for reasons of her own. Tedd's father has also kept this information from Tedd, and [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1693 convinces Nanase to do the same.]] However, only half of Tedd's legacy is truly hidden, as is father is a high-ranking member of the [[TheMenInBlack FBI's paranormal division]], and doesn't keep this from his son at all. It's a bit complicated, and the audience doesn't yet know the whole story.

* In the backstory of ''TheLordOfTheRings'', Aragorn is raised in Rivendell as 'Estel' and not told of his lineage and destiny until he is twenty-one. This is to protect him from his allies and allow him a normal childhood (as normal as a Man raised by Elves can have).
