* In some KingArthur tales, Percival was raised in TheLostWoods by his mother to keep him from hearing of knights. His first glimpse of a KnightInShiningArmor makes him long to be one.

* Creator/{{Drake}} has mentioned similarities between himself and his father several times in his music. Although, in his song "Look What You've Done" he mentions that his mother, who got divorced from his father when he was five, sometimes makes negative comparisons between Drake and his father when she's upset with him.

Widow Jane has gotten herself a nice home, and is raising [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy her son Jack]] there, happy except for the loss of his father -- but it has been years, and she has her son. Except one day, Jack comes running home burbling about someone telling him that his father killed the dragon and [[TellMeAboutMyFather demands to know more]].

And Widow Jane feels like she's been stabbed to the heart, envisioning her son lying before her, pale and bleeding, like his dying father had.

Keeping the AncestralWeapon out of the child's hand is often an element of it, and when he finally gets it, a sign that the struggle is over, and the child will be like his father -- TakeUpMySword metaphorically as well as literally.

* ''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.]]

** Batman often voices -- in his head via narration, as he would almost never voice such a thing out loud -- how proud he is that the various Robins generally didn't end up like him, as his obsessive, miserable life is one he would wish on nobody, least of all his "sons." He particularly voices this in regards to Nightwing, whom he is extremely proud of due to Dick finding his own identity as a hero and a man -- no matter how rocky the split was.

** ''Discworld/MakingMoney''. In [[spoiler:Mr Bent]]'s BackStory, his father was one of the greatest clowns in history, but his mother -- apparently in reaction to the circus moving on, taking his father with it -- developed a disapproval of clowning and raised him very soberly,

** Leia's got a little of her father, too, though this is usually ''much'' more understated, particularly by [[DependingOnTheWriter writers]] who put her in the damsel-in-distress role. Mostly it manifests through her temper, her very strong will -- Luke's determined, but Leia has more passion and staying power -- and her sense of self-importance. She's not as arrogant as Anakin, but she's less quiet about her confidence and accomplishment than her brother is, and the impression she leaves on people has much more authority. Luke is an idealist, and a bit of a mystic. Leia takes charge. A politician who knows her heritage once insinuates that it means she'll betray them all. In Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy, the Noghri call Luke "Firstson of the Lord Vader". They call ''Leia'' the Mal'ary'ush, the heir to Vader's authority and powers, and address her as "Lady Vader." It's pointed out in the ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' duology that she's worried about putting her need to keep her spouse safe over her duty to the rest of the galaxy and second-guesses some of her decisions as a result.

* ''Positive'' examples of this trope show up in ''VideoGame/KingsQuest''. Alexander and Rosella turn out to be just as capable as their father when it comes to adventuring. Alexander is a case of playing it straight, or even an exaggeration, as Mannanan went as far as to call Alex a different name and raise him in a faraway land. (Justified because Mannanan was a wicked wizard and the last thing he needed was a pissed-off Graham showing up) Rosella is an inversion - with her brother gone, she was raised to follow in Graham's footsteps, though she's a bit ''too'' much like her father for Valanice's comfort sometimes.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' is probably the best-known example, and the [[JediTruth efforts]] to keep Luke from being like his father (who, [[ItWasHisSled as we all know]], [[FaceHeelTurn went]] [[TheDarkSide evil]]) occupy three separate characters: Owen[[note]]It's worth noting that when Uncle Owen said his famous quote at the top of this page, Luke's father was "just" a famous pilot who got killed in the war. The MythologyUpgrade didn't come until after Owen was dead[[/note]], Ben Kenobi, and Yoda. In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', Luke realizes that he's dangerously close to invoking this trope after he cuts off Vader's cybernetic right hand and looks down at his own cybernetic right hand. This prompts him to deactivate and discard his lightsaber so that he won't be tempted any further.

* A child that is abused by his father is doomed to abuse another child when they grow up as a desperate need for catharsis to their emotional scars. This tends to be one of the causes of child abuse cases nowadays.
