* ''{{Pokemon}}'' has types 1 and 3. Baby Pokemon can inherit any move both their parents know, that they could get by LevelGrinding. They can also inherit [[PowersAsPrograms TM or HM]] moves, or certain moves that can only come from breeding, from their fathers. Thus, it's possible to have a level 1 baby slinging FrickinLaserBeams around.

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'': Part of what makes Samus Aran such a high achiever is the Chozo blood she was infused with as a young child.
** And, thanks to ''MetroidFusion'', she also has the [=DNA=] of a metroid. You know, those monsters that are pretty much invincible to all but ice. And classified as [=WMDs=].

* The Paralogue children from VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening inherit their parents skills via LamarckWasRight. Players often have certain characters paired up or have them change classes before the paralogue stage so their kids have inherited [[BadAss devastating]] abilities and very high stats they normally wouldn't get in their starting class or gender (such as giving male characters Galeforce). Speaking of which, most the kids (with a few exceptions) are also in the same starting / Base classes as their mothers...

*** Q are extradimensional EnergyBeings. The ones that look human are using AFormYouAreComfortableWith. It's hinted that Amanda's parents suppressed her powers (Q can supress the powers of other Q) and made her believe she was human. She had the powers all along, she just didn't realize it.

** It seems like that if a Force-Sensitive is cloned, the clones will themselves be Force-Sensitive, as shown with [[OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] and [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Joruus C'baoth]]. Though the clone's origins are mysterious enough that it is entirely possible Palpatine created and discarded dozens of C'baoth clones before getting one with the original's power. The clone also makes a [[EvilKnockoff clone of Luke]], but the Luke clone might not have been a Force user.

* Mostly {{averted}} in ''WebAnimation/RWBY''; as [[SoulPower Semblances]] are manifestations of a person's Aura and each person is unique in that sense, there's little chance that a parent will have the same Semblance as their children, assuming either generation even unlocked their Semblance. The [[BlueBlood Schnee]] family is distinctly noted as an exception with their [[InstantRunes glyphs]] being heredity.

** Very likely this is the result of the author [[TheyJustDidntCare just not caring anymore]].



** While Matt seems to have the same powers as his father; Nikki, with super strength, and DL, with phasing powers, somehow manage to have a kid who can talk to machines. The latter example is ridiculous, as the entire premise of Heroes revolves around [[HollywoodEvolution human evolution]]. Someone should tell them that this isn't how natural selection works. (As if [[TheyJustDidntCare they'd care]].)

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', children of Supers tend to be Supers themselves. There are cased of [[MuggleBornOfMages kids of Supers being normal humans]] or kids of Supers being born [[PowerIncontinence Powered]]. In some cases, children's abilities can be similar to their parents', although it's demonstrated multiple times that no two powers are exactly alike. Siblings also tend to have generally similar abilities. For example, the twins Will and Jill Murray are a GadgeteerGenius and a {{Technopath}}, respectively. Also, Angela and Shane Desoto have manifestation abilities (Angela can manifest and control objects made of HardLight, while Shane can do something similar to shadow-based constructs). Chad Taylor's ability is nearly identical to his father's, and he even manages to replicate some of his father's tricks. On the other hand, Alice's flight ([[spoiler:or GravityMaster]]) ability doesn't appear to have any relation to her father's [[AlchemyIsMagic transmutation]] or her mother's [[spoiler:[[{{Seers}} precognition]]]]. She was also born a Powered, not becoming a Super until a special procedure is invented to give a Powered control over his or her ability. Hershel/Roy's ability is remotely similar to their father's, although not for reasons they initially think ([[spoiler:they initially assume that, since Titan is a strongman, then this is why Roy has SuperStrength; however, Titan's true power is adaptation, and so is Hershel's, except, in the latter case, he manifests Roy as his stronger alter-ego]].
