* Although we see ErnestBorgnine throughout the film ''Film/McHalesNavy'', he is a Naval Admiral constantly referred to as "Cobra". It is not until the final scene when the main character, portrayed by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Arnold_(actor) Tom Arnold]], calls the Admiral "Dad" that we know that Borgnine is portraying his original character and Arnold's character is his son.

* ''Film/AceVentura Jr.'', concerning the adventures of a fat kid with the classic Ace's hairstyle. A horrible idea, further plagued by the fact it is a sequel to a JimCarrey movie(s) that doesn't have Jim Carrey in it ''and'' is a sequel to a franchise that was fifteen years old at its release.
** For another JimCarrey example, see "Son of the Mask".
** Similarly, see also 1993's ''Son of the PinkPanther''.

When, rather than using SpinoffBabies (the main characters of an older series being made younger) you instead make a show about the descendants of people from the original premise. Sometimes evolve out of a KidFromTheFuture. May overlap with both GenerationXerox and LegacyCharacter, but can also exist independently of both tropes.

** 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 GoldenSun2 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.
* The fairly mental Amiga/Atari ST game ''VideoGame/Wizkid'' was a sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Wizball}}'', and Wizkid was, unsurprisingly, Wizball's son.
