Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Family}}'': The mafia have superpowers thanks to the 'bloodline', hence why they favor Sicilians marrying each other to not dilute it.

* Both the ability to manifest {{Deryni}} powers and the Haldane potential (apparently a variant) are transmitted genetically; the trait is dominant, so only one parent needs to have the trait for an offspring to inherit it. Thus, so-called "half-breeds" are just as powerful as full-blooded Deryni. Deryni generally need to be taught to use their powers; carriers of the Haldane potential need no training, but must have the potential triggered by a outside action. This is usually done in a ritual, the specifics of which vary slightly from one generation to the next; certain heirloom objects are used, and new ones may be added.

* Implied with the title character in ''Anime/ProjectAKo''. A-ko's parents appear to be CaptainErsatz versions of Comicbook/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/WonderWoman, which would explain her extraordinary strength.

* PlayedWith in ''Webcomic/KongTower,'' with half-siblings Aya and Steve, who's father is a RealityWarper who works on ToonPhysics. Aya's mother is a {{Samurai}} with Shinto based magic powers, but Aya's "abilities" are essentially a more limited version of her father's, in the form of being {{Animesque}}. Steve's mother on the other hand is a psychic, giving Steve… MediumAwareness, which most people in-universe interpret as low level psychic and RealityWarping powers combined with being a functioning schizophrenic. Reference is also made to Superheroes who lack certain RequiredSecondaryPowers dating others who have versions of the abilities they're missing in the hopes that their offspring would be more functional, but whether this would actually work has yet to be shown.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'', magic runs in families, usually matrilinearly. This is part of a villain's plot in [[spoiler:''White Night'', when some of the White Court start killing off female magical practitioners too weak for the White Council to notice, on the logic that this will interfere with future generations of wizards and they can afford to wait.]]

* While ''TigerAndBunny'''s WordOfGod says that NEXT abilities aren't genetic, it's certainly telling that [[spoiler:the two superheroes who were fathers (Wild Tiger and Mr. Legend) ended up having superpowered children (Kaede and Yuri Petrov).]]

** 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 [[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.

* Tenchi Masaki of ''TenchiMuyo'' is slightly over one quarter Juraian (his father happens to be a descendant of his maternal grandfather). Juraian's are an alien race with a tendency to develop Jedi-like powers with training (the royal family being stronger as well). He's also ''the'' most powerful "Juraian" in existence; capable of manifesting three "lighthawk wings", one of the most powerful defensive/offensive attacks known. A typical Juraian ''space ship'' is capable of manifesting only ''one''.

* The ''WildCATs'' are all [[HalfHumanHybrid descendants of]] the Kherubim and/or the Daemonites, super-powered alien races, and inherit their powers-- since both races have a vast array of potential powers, the humans usually only get a random fraction of them.

** OVA Tenchi is most likely disqualified from this as [[spoiler:he's the avatar of his dimension's ''god'']]. However, the one from ''TenchiUniverse'' more than qualifies as it's said that his own Juraian power was passed down from his mother, who was pretty damn powerful in her own right.
