* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': The Lumberjack Ghost helped build the estate the Northwests live in 150 years ago when their ancestors commissioned it. After years of hard labor that cost the lives of several workers, all the common folk found themselves denied entrance into the estate and the removal of trees to build the manor lead to a mudslide that ended up killing the Lumberjack. His revenge was directed at the Northwests and their descendants, as long as they refused to let the commoners in. Since the current generation of Northwests would rather hire an exorcist rather than just let the people in it's less that he hates them for the sins of their ancestors, but more for the fact that they would rather keep repeating the sins instead of learning from them. [[spoiler:When Pacifica goes to break the curse, and let the townsfolk in, the Lumberjack does nothing to stop her, and even encourages her actions as justice is more important than his revenge.]]

* ''FanFic/YetAgain'': In this story, Naruto's status as the son of the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, causes just as many -- if not more -- problems than his status as the Kyuubi Jinchuriki. [[spoiler:Thanks to ButterflyOfDoom, a bunch of Iwa nin (including Han, the Gobi Jinchuriki) learn of his existence and break out of prison to kill him. They attack him and his friends (many of whom are young, prominent clan heirs) while they are returning from a months-long mission. The resulting clusterfuck culminates in Naruto outing both while fighting Han. While all the protagonists survive in more-or-less one piece, the incident pushes Konoha and Iwa into a cold war that perpetuates throughout the TimeSkip. In the sequel, it's revealed that in one possible timeline, tensions finally blew up and caused the Fourth Great Shinobi War]].

Contrast RevengeByProxy, where the target is the child or other associates in preference to the character who actually wronged them, even though that character is available, in order to make that character suffer more. The trope name comes from the ancient saying, "The sins of the fathers shall be visited upon their children."

* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'': Shin is shown getting harassed via his fax machine because of murders his father committed and it's generally played as unfairness towards him. Later, the fact that his father is a murderer benefits Shin in the form of [[spoiler:boosting the sales of his book because of No Such Thing As Bad Publicity]], which the sender of the faxes is shown to not like this at all.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: The persecution of the Eldian people is justified based on this, with Marleyan propaganda stating their ancestors were an EvilEmpire that committed over a thousand years of atrocities before being defeated. The mainland Eldians have been raised to resent their kin living in seclusion on Paradis, who supposedly escaped their "just punishment" by abandoning their kin and hiding within the Walls. A young Grisha Yeager decried this oppression, pointing out the unfairness of punishing subsequent generations for the crimes of people long dead. In comparison, most Eldian children are raised to believe it is their duty to atone for their ancestors' crimes by sacrificing their lives as soldiers and Warriors for Marley's war machine]].

* In Myth/NorseMythology, when Loki's mischief finally crosses the line, the gods can't just kill him because of an oath of fellowship he swore with Odin in younger and happier days. There's nothing stopping them killing his ''family'', though, and part of his doom is that one of his sons is driven out of his mind and kills his brother, whose entrails are then used to forge the unbreakable fetters the gods use to imprison Loki.
