* In Karen Chance's ''[[CassandraPalmer Hunt the Moon]]'', Cassandra Palmer finds out that the reason the power of the Pythia transferred to her after the reigning Pythia died is because [[spoiler:her mother is Artemis, the goddess of death]], and the other candidates, despite being well-trained (and under the mages' control--while Cassie had no training whatsoever) stood no chance because of that.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, up until Billie Wilson got her superpowers, she had no idea that her parents were superpowered mutants who work for the C.I.A. Or that her annoyingly-perfect older brother was a superpowered mutant with a low-level Paragon power. Or that her incredibly annoying kid inventor younger brother was ''also'' a mutant. Okay, her brothers were also clueless on this until she manifested and became Tennyo. (On the other hand, Jadis Diabolik has known about her father since she was old enough to keep a secret, because he is one of the most wanted supervillains on the planet.)

** The only exception to this legacy is Marshall D. Teach, who's shown to beg for his life if it is in any real danger. [[spoiler:This leads Whitebeard to conclude that "the man Roger is waiting for" is not him, insinuating that despite having the initial, Teach is not a true inheritor of the Will of D.]]

* The manga ''InitialD''. A character is left in the dust of an old Corolla, something he is understandably annoyed about, as he is riding an RX-7. He rides to a nearby gas station the next day to see if they know about the rust bucket, where the manager of said station implies that the only car fitting that description belongs to the main character's father, a local racing legend back in the day. The main character, however, couldn't care less about this bit of information (or about anything else at the beginning of the series.)

Heroes are a lonely lot. Whether a SuperHero, [[PsychicPowers psychic]], the LastOfHisKind, or an IgnoredExpert fighting uphill for the sake of the ungrateful masses, heroing is a solitary and unpopular path that separates one from all other {{Muggles}} and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies even loved ones]]. His own family can come to reject the hero, [[WellDoneSonGuy denying their approval]] or outright [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer scorning him as a freak]], it's not like their career choice is following the ancient family legacy. Or is it?

*** According to Donquixote Rocinate, Doflamingo's younger brother and [[spoiler: a former World Noble]], the people of his home country consider those who bear the initial D "God's natural enemy," and go so far as to tell their children boogeyman stories about how "D" will eat them up.
