* It's never made clear the relationship between ''InspectorGadget'' and ''{{Gadget Boy|AndHeather}}'', particularly if it's the same character at different ages or two distinct ones such as father and son. Heather is not unlike an older Penny, but the two girls are clearly different.

** The AlternateContinuity of ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' plays it a bit sideways - Jet Bradley is the son of Flynn's friends Lora and Alan.

** The AlternateContinuity of ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' plays it a bit sideways - Jet Bradley is the son of Flynn's friends Lora and Alan. [[note]] Which, from a certain point of view, makes him a ''younger brother'' of Tron and Yori. There's also a [[WildMassGuessing fan theory]] that he may be [[WesternAnimation/TronUprising Beck's]] User, which would bring it full circle.[[/note]]

** The ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games star either the son (or maybe grandson, there's conflicting information) of the original DonkeyKong (who now goes by Cranky).

* Since pro wrestling often tends to be a [[WrestlingFamily family business]], many sons and daughters of famous wrestlers of yesteryear go on to have wrestling careers in their own right. The results are mixed both in terms of booking and actual crowd perception. Some have careers that go on to ''outstrip'' those of their fairly well-known parents and grandparents by miles. (Who's High Chief Peter Maivia again? Most people nowadays will [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson know his grandson, though.) Others have decent careers but not to the degree of their heritage. Some show obvious talent, perhaps equal to or exceeding that of their parents, but because of either a lack of crowd reaction, bad booking, or longstanding feuds between a promotion's boss and said family, don't ever break the glass ceiling. On the other hand, some wrestlers aren't perceived to have their parents talent but are pushed to the moon anyway because of said family connection. And within kayfabe, it gets more complicated. If a promotion goes out of their way to mention a young talent's famous family connections and work it into storylines, it usually signals that the promotion has big plans for that talent.

* Too many examples to mention ([[TemptingFate not that saying that will stop anyone from doing so]]). A reading of history books will show that influential people (kings, politicians, military officers, business tycoons, celebrities, etc.) tend to have influential children who often go into the same line of work and are able to work off of their family's connections. Expect to see the same families turning up generation after generation if you take a history class.

* A go-to trope for many of Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's 21st century books. (Particularly the {{Petaybee}} and [[Literature/TowerAndTheHive Talents series]].)

* This was part of ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'''s justification for [[{{Macekre}} "tying together"]] the [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross three]] [[Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada unrelated]] [[Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross shows]] that were used to create it. This was done in the Masters Saga (Southern Cross) to tie it into the Macross Saga. The protagonist, Dana Sterling (Jeanne Francaix in the original), is portrayed as Max and Miria's daughter, and Bowie is (according to the non-canon novels, at least) the nephew of Claudia Grant ([=LaSalle=] in the original), one of the BridgeBunnies from Macross.
