* {{Inverted|Trope}} in the 2004 version of ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera''. In the graveyard ("Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again/Angel of Music Reprise/Swordfight"), Raoul says to Christine, "This man--this ''thing''--is not your father!"

Things can get even {{Squick}}ier if the "offspring" is a full-size, adult clone. In RealLife, monozygotic twinning (identical twins) is as close as you can get, so most would consider a copy that's close to their age (or even older) a "sibling" rather than a "child". …Although that's moot if this trope is played straight, of course, as the reaction will instead be "That Thing Is Not My Sibling."

Do not confuse with IHaveNoSon, in which the parent disowns a disappointing child. See also ClonesArePeopleToo, in which a person doesn't actually consider said clone family, but nonetheless respects their right to live.

If a parent maintains that it '''is''' their child, dispite bad behavior, it's MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal.

*** Ditto with Kaine, though the resolution took considerably longer since Kaine was, basically, crazy and tried to kill both Peter and Ben a number of times. Eventually he sacrificed himself for Peter in ''Grim Hunt'', before returning during ''Spider-Island'' and reconciling with Peter. The two now see each other as brothers, and while they don't always get on with each other, Kaine does genuinely want to be a man as good as his brother, while usually believing himself to be a monster.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'': Double subverted during the "New Caprica" arc. After the Cylon invasion, Leoben Conoy AKA Number Two has kidnapped Kara "Starbuck" Thrace and keeps her locked up in a secluded apartment to force some sort of twisted StockholmSyndrome relationship on her, and since he has plenty of backup bodies, "killing" him just means he'll be back in a few hours. At one point he brings in a little blonde girl that he claims is a human-cylon hybrid, who was conceived with Kara's ovary (which the Cylons had previously removed from her body) and his own sperm. Starbuck initially refuses to accept the child as her own, but when the kid gets hurt Kara seems to acknowledge the child as her daughter. However, when the humans escape the planet it's revealed that the kid in question was actually taken from her real human mother by Leoben as part of his ploy to get close to Starbuck.

* Played with in the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' book ''Foxglove Summer'': A woman whose daughter went missing [[spoiler: when she followed a unicorn to Fairyland]] is adamant what what returned isn't her daughter. It turns out [[spoiler: her daughter ''was'' replaced by a changeling, but that happened eleven years earlier; the magical nightmare now in her house ''is'' her biological daughter. Once this is explained to her, she still says that her ''real'' daughter is the girl she raised, wherever she came from.]]
