** 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.

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Inverted during a DreamSequence where a frightened and despaired Shinji cries out that he will turn out like his father because they are just ''too'' alike, and his mother reassures him that he will not be like Gendo when he grows up.
* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Shinji was frightened of [[spoiler:becoming a father, among other reasons, because he was afraid of him turning out to be like his father and hurting his child like Gendo had hurt him.]]
* Subverted in ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' and it's spin-off ''Fanfic/TheBridgeHumanitysStand'', where some of humanity and the GDF worried [[NeutralGood Godzilla Junior]], while a force for good and benefactor of humanity, would eventually become more like his highly destructive [[ChaoticNeutral father]]. Junior himself worries this may happen and is conscious he is in some ways like his predecessor.

* ''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. Vader being Luke's father was a {{Retcon}} added for ''Empire''.[[/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.

[[ShroudedInMyth Making]] [[SecretLegacy this relative]] [[LockedOutOfTheLoop a secret]] is one technique; which usually makes the forbidden relative ForbiddenFruit. Another, as popular, is [[ThePromise extracting a promise]], which the child will usually [[IGaveMyWord try to keep]] until the pressure gets too high.

[[InTheBlood Trying to keep him from evil]] has [[UpbringingMakesTheHero a fairly good success rate]]. Trying to keep him from his father's profession has a considerably poorer one, particularly when the reaction to the father's [[InHarmsWay violent life]] is to try to make an ActualPacifist; though the child may turn out less violent, there is usually something he ''must'' defend against. When the mother's motive is to keep him from being killed by the precise character who killed the father, generally a prequel to YouKilledMyFather.

* In ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'', Richard accidentally time travels to a BadFuture. The flashbacks reveal that, after Richard's apparent death in his own time, [[BigBad Darken Rahl]] forced her to becoming his consort. She agreed, having found out from a witch that Richard is in the future and hoping that being Rahl's consort will allow her to survive long enough to provide Richard the necessary information in order to go back and change things. She ends up getting pregnant with a son and begs Rahl to allow her to kill him in accordance with Confessor custom, as male Confessors always turn out to be abusers of their abilities. Rahl refuses, excited at having a male heir, figuring that he ought to be able to mold a Confessor/sorcerer to his own ends. However, Nicholas Rahl turns out to be exactly like Rahl himself, killing his parents (just like Darken killed his father Panis) and becoming an even worse tyrant than his father, using his Confessor powers to force his people to adore him and attack anyone who doesn't. Fortunately, Richard is able to go back to the moment he left and stop it from happening.

It is constantly pointed out how like Ging Gon is and at Gon later in life sets out to follow in his father's footsteps and become a Hunter and find out just why it is worth abandoning your only child for.

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' expands on the similarities between Luke and his father at his age. 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.
** It's underlined by both of them and their fascination with Jedi Master Jorus/Joruus C'baoth. True, the [[OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] Anakin knew was not yet insane (but he would be soon), whereas [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy his clone Joruus]] really was, and Anakin was fourteen whereas Luke was in his late twenties. Still, Anakin liked C'baoth's philosophy that the non-Jedi were sheep at best and should be handled without asking, whereas Luke, despite being on a quest to find surviving Jedi and thus presumably more interested, instantly felt uneasy about these teachings even though he thought they made sense.
