* In an issue of ''[[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Uncanny X-Men]]'', ComicBook/{{Cable}} invokes this trope by name when he asks Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} (his father) to tell him about his mother, Madelyne Pryor (presumably the woman she was before she became [[OmnicidalManiac The Goblin Queen]]). This scene is given an odd dissonance, given that thanks to time travel Cable is old enough to be Cyclops' father.

** Also, though it took two and a half films, Luke develops some curiosity about his mother as well, and asks Leia to tell him about her. Which was turned into a retcon when the prequels came out -- DeathByChildbirth took their mother, so the only mother Leia knew was her adoptive mother, Queen Breha Organa.

However, Leia was well aware that she was adopted, [[HappilyAdopted she just didn't care]], so the leading fan theory is that Leia's "memories" of Padme were actually Force visions that she didn't have the knowledge to recognize as such.
