* 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.

* 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.
