* The ancient king [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]] eventually attained eternal life and youth, becoming known to history as many different great heroes, such as [[{{Lunar}} Kyle the Bandit King]], [[VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia Vyse the Blue Rogue]], and, er, [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Tracey]], among numerous others. Finally, after his adventures as [[Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne Van Fanel]], he gained an appreciation for good old Earth living and HumongousMecha. His next identity was an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion almost died trying to become a mecha pilot]]. After that debacle, he trained hard and became [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic a mecha pilot who nearly died trying to become a high school student]] instead. He survived to early retirement and decided to let himself age a little and become the proprietor of an [[Manga/LuckyStar anime shop]]. After inadvertently pissing off Konata/Haruhi/Morgan Freeman/God and being hurled forward to the 22nd century, where he decided to become [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico a mecha pilot again]]. Unfortunately, he'd gotten rusty, and was shot in the second episode. After "dying", his immortality eventually kicked in, and he tried to redeem himself in a [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam few]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED other]] space conflicts, though he didn't truly manage it until he wound up in [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Neo-Japan]].

* The video game version of [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Will Turner]] is actually one of many secret identities of the video game version of {{Superman}}, who is also a [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} vampire]] that may or may not be Dracula. He was originally Karasu of ''Noein'', where he gained the ability to travel through dimensions, and was bitten by another dimension's Dracula while using the alias [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} "Hector"]]. This also explains the true identity and motives of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Itachi Uchiha]], making him an all-powerful [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot dimension-traveling vampire superhero ninja pirate]]. The inevitable result is for him to become [[VideoGame/MakaiKingdom the most badass freakin' Overlord in the cosmos]].

* [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack and Elizabeth Swann]] found the Fountain of Youth. Unfortunately, Elizabeth accidentally drank a little too much of its water and regressed to babyhood, so Jack arranged for her to be adopted by one [[PrideAndPrejudice Mr. Bennet]].

* An interesting non-sci-fi case is of one [[MySoCalledLife Delia Fisher]]. After graduating high school, she attended North Central Polytech and started going by her middle name, Lizzi. After being president of that college's Zeta Beta Zeta sorority, she was hired by the National organization to be a clean-up consultant, getting delinquent chapters, like a [[{{Greek}} certain scandal-plagued chapter in Ohio]], back on the right track. She then becomes a computer tech for the FBI and is dispatched to [[Series/GeneralHospital Port Charles, New York]] to bring down the local mob, while imitating the SesquipedalianLoquaciousness of the local mob hacker lackey. Oh, and in her spare time, she's an assistant for a [[BeakmansWorld crazy-haired guy in a green lab coat]].

None of their parents has yet had the courage to give them TheTalk about where babies ''really'' come from (specifically, metal pods full of baby-shaped silver goo, which you apply DNA to, resulting in an instant child).

* [[{{Transformers}} Spike Witwicky]] is an amnesiac [[Franchise/IndianaJones Henry Jones III]]. His mother, Marion, is an epic ho who has two other sons, each by different fathers: [[Film/{{Tron}} Sam Flynn]], conceived by [[Film/{{Starman}} an alien whom she met after the disappearance of Kevin Flynn]], and Eragon, fathered by [[Literature/{{Discworld}} the Patrician]] during a period of time that he spent in Alagaesia. Sam Flynn was born in Alagaesia and raised by his stepfather, Morzan, under the name Murtagh, before returning to Earth to try and find his real father. As for the Patrician, he remained in Alagaesia until he [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons tried to destroy the world using dragons]], at which point he was eaten by a dragon. The intense magical powers and digestive juices turned him into [[Literature/TheTimeMachine the Uber-Morlock]] and threw him millions of years into the future.

* Prior to the movie ''First Contact'', [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]] somehow wound up back in Earth's past where he became a sea captain under the alias of [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]]. Starfleet didn't track him down until years after he ended up there and beamed him out in the nick of time before he was eaten by The Whale. They then had to bring him back to the 24th century, shave off the hair (or what little) of it he'd grown, regrow his leg via some sort of surgery and somehow managed to restore his sanity. This would explain how he was able to recite the lines of Moby Dick in the aforementioned movie. At some other point in his life Captain Picard travelled back in time to become [[Film/{{X-Men}} Professor Xavier]].

** You'd think he'd have better reflexes, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} all things considered.]] On the other hand, given his record commanding military vehicles under the alias of Thomas Dodge, I guess it's not terribly surprising.
