* 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.

Weis's father isn't shown to ever be using it, but then he doesn't actually have the genes, since he married into the family (but [[BerserkButton don't remind him of that]]).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Push}}'', children of psychics tend to inherit their parents' abilities, sometimes to a greater extent (although the reverse can be true as well). For example, Cassie is a watered-down version of her extremely powerful mother (a [[{{Seer}} Watcher]]), while Nick is a more powerful [[MindOverMatter Mover]] than his father was (at least once he has some practice). The [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Triad]] boss's sons have inherited his [[MakeMeWannaShout Bleeder]] ability (although his is more powerful), but his daughter is actually a pretty good Watcher (possibly, her mother was one as well).

* On ''Series/PainkillerJane'' this is apparently the reason for the [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual neuros]]' abilities, though the agency frankly admits they're not sure of the real cause. Jane is specifically stated ''not'' to be a neuro as well, so it's anyone's guess where she got ''her'' [[HealingFactor ability]].

It's implied she was injected with something just prior to being thrown out of a [[DestinationDefenestration high-rise window]].

** Teylar has inherited some Wraith genes from her father, who was experimented on by a Wraith scientist. As a result, she can jack into the Wraith psychic network and even temporarily take control of Wraith (while also leaving her own body exposed to be controlled by a Wraith).

** It seems like that if a Force-Sensitive is cloned, the clones will themselves be Force-Sensitive, as shown with [[Literature/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.

* The Disney movie ''Film/UpUpAndAway'' involves a boy named Scott whose parents are Bronze Eagle and Warrior Woman. Bronze Eagle can fly, and Warrior Woman has super-strength as well as a super-fast motorcycle. His big brother, Silver Charge, has super-speed and electrical manipulation. His little sister has x-ray vision and EyeBeams. Even his grandparents on his father's side have super-strength/flight (grandfather, Steel Condor) and VoluntaryShapeshifting (grandmother, InformedAbility). Scott's problem is that he's quickly approaching his 14th Birthday, and he has yet to develop any ability. 14 is the cut-off for a super. If he doesn't get an ability by that time, than he's just a {{Muggle}}. To that end, he decides to fake having super-strength (by rigging a door to fly off its hinges) and flight (by throwing a ball at a tree and hiding). In the end, though, it's his normalcy that ends up saving the day.

** [[spoiler:It later turns out that Tedd is a {{Seer}}, a rare type of wizard that differs from the norm, and that apparently one is ''guaranteed'' to be a wizard if both your parents are wizards. This also applies to people with magic affinities, who are hinted to be descended from immortals]].

*** The current ''ComicBook/SupermanRebirth'' story subverts this, with Jon Kent being both canonical and potentially even more powerful than Superman himself.


Added DiffLines:

** In the ''New 52'', Superboy was revealed as the clone of the future son of Superman and Lois Lane, Jon Lane Kent, who was raised by a metahuman hater called Harvest to be a LivingWeapon - and both he and Superboy were, for whatever reason, [[PsychicPowers massively powerful psychics]], though they were hinted to have more classic physical superpowers too. No one had any particular idea as to why.
