* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' played around with this on occasion. The fourth game, ''Genealogy of the Holy War'', had the main characters at the start of the game [[spoiler:die off halfway through and]] be replaced with their children. Many (though not all) of the characters in ''The Sealed Sword'' were the children of characters in ''The Blazing Blade'', which would be a straight example if not for the fact that ''Sealed Sword'' was made first. (A couple of characters from ''Sealed Sword'' were the parents of characters in ''Blazing Blade'', and [[BadassGrandpa grandparents]] of other characters in ''Sealed Sword''. Still doesn't work because the game that came out first takes place later.)

** In fact, almost all of the characters are descended from the heroes or minor characters. Matthew's mother is revealed to be [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Jenna]], Tyrell's father is Garet, but he is apparently unrelated to Rief, Mia's son. Rief's sister apparently develops a crush on Piers, ruling him out as a possible father. Karis is Ivan's daughter, but no indication is given as to who her mother might be. The remaining characters are Eoleo, who is the son of Briggs and was actually seen in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunTheLostAge'' as a baby, and Himi, daughter of minor characters Susa and Kushinada from the same game. The only character whose parentage is ambiguous is Amiti, although [[spoiler:There's strong indications that Alex is his father in the ending]]. Interestingly, while Isaac and Garet show up, and Mia, Ivan, and Piers are frequently mentioned, there's barely any talk of Jenna, and Felix and Sheba are conspicuously absent.

* In another example from Creator/MarvelComics, three of the ComicBook/YoungAvengers (Stature, Wiccan, and Speed) are children of former Avengers members. A fourth (Patriot) is the grandson of the ''first'' ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Literature/SuperPowereds'' and ''Literature/{{Corpies}}''. The latter is a spin-off of the former and features the subsequent adventures of the Hero father of one of the characters in ''Super Powereds''. In fact, the main series takes place in a SuperheroSchool, so Hershel/Roy isn't a Hero yet, while Titan is a well-known name (forced to leave the business a decade prior due to a sex scandal).

* Japan does this a lot, actually. For example, ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has a different "[=JoJo=]" for each arc, but most/all are blood relatives one way or another (to exemplify: Jonathan is grandpa to Joseph, who is grandpa to Jotaro, who in a subversion, is ''nephew'' to Josuke!).
** Giorno gets the most distant relations to any other, infact his father side of his family is downright screwed up (his dad is Dio, no less!), but regardless he bears the birthmark [[spoiler:since Dio had stolen Johnathan's body]].
