* In at least one episode of ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', Max is angsting over this. The problem is not his father being evil though, but rather him being... just WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}.
** There's also Max's nightmare at the beginning of ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' in which he transforms into his father and scares off the girl he has a crush on.

* In {{One Piece}}, Monkey D. Garp tries so very hard to make his grandson, Luffy, a Marine :like himself. However, he fails and Luffy becomes a highly-wanted pirate, much like his own father, who is the leader of a revolutionary army and the most wanted man in the world. Ironically, in the Water Seven Arc, Luffy and his crew proclaim war against the world government, much like his father did. This is ultimately averted, however, in that Garp loves both his son and his grandson and is in fact quite proud of them. He just didn't want Luffy to be a pirate because it meant, as a Marine, he'd have to oppose his own grandson.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has its own unique spin on the trope--Gendo sent Shinji away because he was afraid of bringing him to harm. But the psychological harm that Gendo caused by abandoning Shinji backfires horribly, and by the end of the series, the horribly broken Shinji is not very different from his father after all.
** Both [[spoiler:tried to--or did--destroy the world because they could not have the woman that they loved. Yui in the case of Gendo, Asuka in the of Shinji.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Much as Tyrion faces prejudice for being a dwarf, Dany faces the stigma of being "The Mad King's Daughter", with both friends and allies worried that she will turn out to be another Aerys II. About the only thing she and her father have in common is using fire as a weapon.

** In ''Literature/DarkEmpire'', Palpatine, BackFromTheDead via CloningGambit, corrupted Luke, dressed him in Vaderesque clothes, gave him the same kind of [[ArtificialArm mechno-hand]], and lost him to the Light Side when Leia came to save him. Luke is a pilot, a very good one, but not quite as reckless nor as skilled as Anakin. He is fairly resourceful with machinery, doing things like [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy opening up his artificial hand to use its battery]] for something and [[HandOfThrawn rewiring some power packs to make them explode]], but he doesn't have anything like Anakin's ridiculous skill with machines.
