[[caption-width-right:350:[[ComicallyMissingThePoint There's not even blood on his sword!]] The audience must think this is [[WorstWhateverEver the worst gladiator match ever]].]]

Some children just don't see eye to eye with their parents. They may argue with them, flout their authority, or pretend they don't exist. This character, however, goes that extra mile. They're not only on a different page from their mom or dad, but a different side morally as well--and since the parent in question is at least nominally heroic, there is no way this is going to end well. Mom or dad might be a force for good, but their child is not, and is willing to let them know it. They're not {{Self Made Orphan}}s, but [[BetrayalByOffspring if they get their way, they will be soon.]]

This trope is the inverse of the situation found in the ArchnemesisDad and EvilMatriarch tropes: one of the protagonists has a child who also happens to be pretty darn evil, and an opposing force within the story. Why this happens can vary wildly. Maybe the child is the result of {{abus|iveParents}}e, [[ParentalAbandonment abandonment]], or [[ParentalNeglect neglect]]. Maybe they were [[EvilMentor mentored]] or [[RaisedByOrcs raised]] by one of their parents' enemies and just don't know any better. Maybe their parents are separated, and it's the evil one who got custody. Or maybe they were just born bad. Whatever the case, expect a lot of {{angst}}ing about WhereDidWeGoWrong on the part of the heroic parent or parents.

Since most heroes in fiction are younger, this trope isn't as common as the ArchnemesisDad and EvilMatriarch tropes. [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Freudian psychology]] often justifies this through a theory known as the OedipusComplex. See OffingTheOffspring and SelfMadeOrphan for what this might lead to, and cranking it UpToEleven may result in GenocideFromTheInside. Can easily overlap with EnfanteTerrible and TeensAreMonsters, although it doesn't have to. If one party is unaware of the relationship, it might lead to a LukeIAmYourFather[=/=]LukeYouAreMyFather moment when the secret is outed. In fantasy works, this character stands a good chance of being a BastardBastard or TheEvilPrince. See EvilOrphan, for when the kid isn't actually yours, and CainAndAbel, for when they go gunning for their siblings instead of mom and dad. If the offspring finds allies, you have a dark version of FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent. See also APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil for mentor relationships.

A subtrope of OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', [[spoiler: Zeke Yeager]]'s parents tried to use him as a tool to overthrow the government, while he was still a small child. Instead, he turned them over to the SecretPolice and helped destroy their resistance group. Even as an adult, he's still incredibly resentful towards his father and considers his younger brother, [[spoiler: Eren Yeager]] to be another victim of their father.
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', with its NationsAsPeople cast, [[LoveFreak America]] is this to [[BritishStuffiness England]]. Unsurprisingly.
-->'''America''': At least I don't have to eat your ''scones'' [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution anymore]].\\
'''England:''' ''[furious]'' Those scones were a recipe passed down from my Mumsie!
* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', VillainProtagonist Light Yagami is a mass murderer, and his father Soichiro is the police chief trying to stop him. However, Soichiro is unaware of his son's secret life, [[spoiler:and he dies believing that his son is innocent.]] In the second live-action movie, Light actually wrote his father's name down. [[spoiler:Soichiro didn't die, but he did witness his son attempting to kill him.]]
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': After being excommunicated from Fairy Tail for unspecified reasons, the guild master's son, Ivan, forms his own guild called Raven Tail. They exists almost entirely to antagonize Fairy Tail.
** [[spoiler:It's revealed that this is the ''true'' purpose of the Etherious -- to kill their creator, [[DeathSeeker Zeref]]. Only Mard Geer and E.N.D. know this, the former because he is acting in the place of the latter as guild master of Tartoros, and the latter because he is the only demon with the power to do the deed]].
* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', Akito, who has a HUGE FreudianExcuse for [[spoiler:her]] behavior, tried to strangle AbusiveParent Ren for claiming that the Zodiac members will leave Akito behind. Thankfully for Ren, Hatori pulled Akito away before she was killed.
* ''Franchise/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the [[BigBad main villain]], 'Father,' self-identified as Van Hohenheim's son back before he got godlike powers, and seems to have had a love-hate relationship with Hohenheim. For his part, Hohenheim had no idea about the hate until the Homunculus tricked the emperor into killing his entire country and funneling their souls into it, giving it the power to create a body. It shares half the souls with Hohenheim, then revels in his horror at his entire country being a DoomedHometown and [[IAmAMonster his new catchphrase]]. The next time they meet, they are enemies, with Hohenheim as the BigGood, and his son, mentor, EvilCounterpart, and creator as the BigBad.
** In [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]], [[TheSociopath psychopathic]] {{Jerkass}} and GreenEyedMonster [[TheDragon Envy]] is revealed to be the failed reincarnation of the son that [[HeroicWannabe wannabe]] BigGood Hohenheim had with [[BigBad Dante]]. With his DisappearedDad as a built-in FreudianExcuse, Envy makes several attempts on the lives of [[CainAndAbel his father's children]], Ed and Al, before discovering that Hohenheim is, in fact, alive. This results in him tracking Hohenheim to our world, where they kill one another in TheMovie.
** Incidentally, this means that in the 2003 anime Envy turns out to be Ed's older half-brother, and in the manga [[AmbiguousGender it]], and all the other Homunculi, turn out to be his ''nephews and niece.''
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has a variation. While Lady Chiyo's son and daughter-in-law were lovely people, her grandson Sasori (whom she raised after his parents' deaths) is a homicidal maniac who murdered his village's leader and turned him into a puppet. He later joins up with the Akatsuki, and helps to kidnap the village's new leader, resulting in a lethal confrontation between himself and his grandmother.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', [[spoiler: Shinigami and his eldest son Asura. Subverted as Asura is technically a fragment of Shinigami's soul, but it still counts. Kid is not amused with this development]].
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has parental issues galore.
** The [[HalfHumanHybrid One-Eyed Owl]] and their father, BigGood Yoshimura. While he loves his child dearly and has devoted his life to protecting them, his child considers him a coward that abandoned them to a horrible life. When the two are finally reunited, [[spoiler: Eto gleefully hands her dear daddy over to [[MadScientist Dr. Kanou]] as a "donor" for his research]]. More than one person calls them out on this particularly cruel action.
** [[spoiler: Nimura Furuta]] is one of '''many''' illegitimate children sired by [[spoiler: Chairman Tsuneyoshi Washuu]]. This lifetime of resentment and hatred ends with him murdering his father and the rest of TheClan as part of a hostile takeover.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Cable}}'':
** [[{{Archenemy}} Stryfe]], is an odd example, being a [[EvilTwin clone]] of ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}' son, Cable, who was captured and raised by a future version of Apocalypse to be his son and [[GrandTheftMe heir]]. Ultimately rebelling, Stryfe seeks to slay both {{Ca|inAndAbel}}ble and Cyclops ''and'' Apocalypse, whom he regards respectively as his biological and spiritual parents. He has repeatedly clashed with all of them in pursuit of his insane agenda.
** Continuing this trend, [[EvilUncle Stryfe]] later captured Cable's son by Aliya Summers, [[MasterOfIllusion Tyler Dayspring]], [[spoiler: In fact it's heavily implied i.e. all but said, that Tyler is in fact Stryfe's son due to the time when he pretended to be his Cable (nobody realized the two were physically identical for years because Stryfe was never seen unmasked by anybody else until they both came to the 20th century) and tricked Aliya into having sex with him]] and raised him to hate his father. As one of Stryfe's soldiers, Tyler attempted to murder Cable's friend, Dawnsilk, and was shot by his father for his efforts. Tyler's hatred for Cable turned [[ItsPersonal personal]] after this, and he travelled back to the past, adopting the identities of "Mister Tolliver" and "Genesis". He forced his father's team, Six-Pack, into conflict with [[PersonOfMassDestruction Stryfe]], leading them to disband, attempted to infiltrate and subvert X-Force, which Cable was leading, and again confronted his father when the latter was [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by Stryfe, an altercation which led to Stryfe's "death" and left Cable very traumatised. Tyler later declared himself Apocalypse's [[TheDragon heir]] and was killed by {{Wolverine}}; his ghost meets with Cable during a near-death experience and the two seem to have reconciled.
** Then there's Cyclops' [[spoiler:brother, Vulcan]] who tries to kill [[spoiler:their father, Corsair]] right after meeting him.
* ComicBook/{{Daken}} is ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s son, and an AxCrazy ManipulativeBastard and DepravedBisexual to boot, thanks in no small part to ParentalAbandonment and being raised by the murderous [[DrillSergeantNasty Cyber]]. He desperately wants to kill his father, though despite what he might think, he's not quite good enough to pull it off yet. Averted by his "sister", ComicBook/{{X 23}}, who, despite her issues, views Wolverine as a father figure and gets along with him fine.
* [[CastingAShadow Obsidian]], the son of Franchise/GreenLantern Alan Scott and supervillainess [[SplitPersonality Thorn]], seems to have inherited his mother's disposition towards mental instability. Initially a superhero, Obsidian suffered a [[HeroicBSOD mental breakdown]] and turned to evil under the influence of [[MadScientist Ian]] [[EvilSorcerer Karkull]], from whom his powers were derived. During this time, he attacked his father's team, the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, blaming Scott for [[ParentalAbandonment abandoning]] him to be raised in an {{abusive|Parents}} foster home; he was defeated, fittingly enough, when his [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic foster father]] sacrificed himself to save Scott. He later allied with [[FallenAngel Eclipso]] and [[SorcerousOverlord The Dark Lord]] [[ImmortalityImmorality Mordru]] in an attempt to plunge the entire world into darkness; Scott confronted his deranged son during this battle, defeated him, and was ultimately able to cure him of his madness.
* ComicBook/TomStrong's son Albrecht Strong, who his evil Nazi villainess Ingrid Weiss conceived (after what may well have been a rape) and raised without his consent. Their main antagonistic relationship is shown in a FlashForward to 2050; as a would-be world-conqueror and a [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] to boot, Albrecht repeatedly clashes with his ScienceHero father.
* ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk'': Hulk had issues with his son, Skaar, who came to Earth and waited around for Bruce Banner to return to being the Hulk so he could kill him. He eventually mellowed and got along with his father. His other son, Hiro-Kala, hates Bruce and the Hulk, and tried to [[KillAllHumans wipe out Earth]] in his rage, using brainwashed slaves to do his dirty work; it takes Bruce and Skaar to take him down.
* David Haller, aka Legion, is the son of ''Comicbook/XMen'' founder Charles Xavier and Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Haller. He's also a deeply disturbed young man with vast psionic powers and multiple personality disorder, including an alt that is modelled on a crazed terrorist who tried to kidnap him as a child. Institutionalised as a child, David eventually broke out, clashing frequently with both the X-Men and the ComicBook/NewMutants, both of whom were led by Xavier. David eventually integrated his personalities and tried to redeem himself, but this only created worse problems, as his attempted assassination of ComicBook/{{Magneto}} in the past resulted in Xavier's death and the creation of the Comicbook/AgeOfApocalypse timeline. David was briefly killed by Bishop following this. He's since turned up alive, trying to find peace in a Tibetan monastery, which he accidentally destroyed when he learned of [[spoiler:his father's death.]]
** Xavier's ex, Moira [=McTaggart=], has had her own problems with her son, Kevin, alias Proteus. Conceived when Moira's estranged husband Joe raped her, Kevin was born with RealityWarper and DemonicPossession abilities, and severe emotional problems, and was imprisoned by his mother. Kevin broke out when his cell was damaged, and went on a rampage, during which he killed several people (including his father), tried to kill his mother and the X-Men, and was seemingly killed by Colossus. Since then, he has infrequently returned to attack the X-Men and Moira, who he blames for his problems. The ''Ultimate'' version of Proteus, by the way, is a CompositeCharacter of Proteus and Legion, being Xavier and Moira's son.
* In ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel'', Captain America's {{Archenemy}} The ComicBook/RedSkull, is his son by Gail Richards. Growing up on a military base following his father's apparent death, the Skull hid his resentment of Cap until he was [[TeensAreMonsters 17]]; when he finally attempted escape, killed upwards of two hundred people on the base, and, in a final act of rebellion against his father, [[SelfHarm mutilated his own face]] [[SkullForAHead by skinning it]]. He would go on to become a [[PsychoForHire hired]] [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]], undertaking numerous missions for terror groups like AIM--including [[WhoShotJFK assassinating JFK]]--before coming up against the resurrected Captain America after being hired to steal the [[ArtifactOfDoom Cosmic Cube]]. The battle between father and son left numerous people dead, and ultimately ended in the Skull's death, after he was hospitilised by Cap and then killed by the mother of one of his victims.
* Creator/MarvelComics really likes this trope: there's also Hyperstorm, the possible-future son of [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Franklin Richards]] and [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Rachel Summers]], who travelled to the present to destroy the ComicBook/FantasticFour, an act that might very well have prevented his own birth. At one point in the MC-2 verse he even went after his father, Franklin, ignoring the potential grandfather paradox.
* In the ''[[ComicBook/BatmanTheBlackMirror The Black Mirror]]'' arc of [[Creator/DCComics Detective Comics]], Franchise/{{Batman}} had to deal with the psychopathic [[spoiler: James Gordon Jr, the Commissioner's son]].
* Omni of DC's ''ComicBook/RelativeHeroes'' doesn't even realize he is fighting his parents until he learns [[spoiler:that he's not actually human at all and is a member of the PowerCopying shapeshifting race the ES who are currently trying to invade earth. He decides to stick with humanity and his new family to fight them]].
* Some ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'' comics portray the relationship between the original Comicbook/{{Venom}} (a delusional Type V AntiHero who only targets Spider-Man) and his [[TheSymbiote symbiote's]] offspring, Carnage (an AxCrazy SerialKiller and indiscriminate mass-murderer) this way, complete with Carnage referring to Venom as dad. His appearance was one of the few things that was all but guaranteed to force an EnemyMine between [[ArchEnemy archenemies]] Venom and Spider-Man.
* ComicBook/{{Ultron}}, a [[AIIsACrapshoot homicidal robot]] created by [[Comicbook/AntMan Hank Pym]] of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' refers to Pym as his father. It has also tried to kill him, ComicBook/TheAvengers, and [[KillAllHumans most of humanity]] at one point or another, and is rightly considered by Pym to be his {{Archenemy}}. Ironically, Ultron's attempts at creating its own offspring have also met with failure and {{Heel Face Turn}}s, making Ultron both an AntagonisticOffspring to Pym, and an ArchnemesisDad towards ComicBook/TheVision and [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Victor Mancha]].
** One of Ultron's incarnations averted this and wanted to have a good relationship with his "father" Hank. Sadly, this Ultron sacrificed himself to save Hank.
* Korinna and Jupiter Ducklair of ''[=PK2=]'', the sequel of ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', have a deep hatred for their father because they feel [[spoiler:robbed them of their destiny to become rulers of the planet Corona]].
* In the ''L.E.G.I.O.N.'' comics, Vril Dox/Brainiac 2's son, Lyrl Dox/Brainiac 3, plotted against him, eventually seizing control of LEGION and turning his father into an outlaw. Vril eventually deposed his son, and took back his police force, but they would remain enemies for years.
* In the Franchise/ArchieComics ''ComicBook/MegaMan'' series, this is the relationship between Dr. Light and [[FlawedPrototype Break Man/Proto Man/Blues.]] Blues has some serious daddy issues, combined with a childish assumption that Light built Rock (Mega Man) and Roll as his replacements (rather than his siblings, as Light intended), leaving him very vulnerable to manipulation by Dr. Wily. Eventually, he becomes more an AntiHero antagonist, one who [[PoorCommunicationKills refuses to go to Dr. Light and work things out.]]
* From the Franchise/MarvelUniverse: The Blue Marvel Adam Brashear's older son Kevin was lost in the Neutral Zone in a battle with a supervillain. Adam's younger son Max resented his father for not saving his brother. Max eventually became a super villain and fell in with terrorist organization, all in a bid to bring his brother back. This brought father and son into conflict. Fortunately, they eventually reconciled.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'', George Cochran is an honest politician who believes in equality for robots, but his son William is a fervent anti-robot racist.
* This is what makes [[FakeDefector Skye]] [[TheMole Stark]] of ''FanFic/SometimesIHateTheLifeIMade'' believable to Ultron, since she really hates Tony Stark.
* Empath of ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' turns into this in "Papa Smurf & Mama Smurfette" when in an alternate timeline [[MayDecemberRomance Smurfette falls in love and marries Papa Smurf]], eventually leading Empath and his fellow Smurfs into a revolt where they force Papa Smurf, Smurfette, and all those loyal to the couple to leave the village.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' is Tai Lung (a snow leopard), the adopted son of Master Shifu (a red panda).
* In ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'', WordOfGod says Nekron is [[spoiler:Darkwolf's son]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'', the dragon that Beowulf faces at the end is actually his bastard son by Grendel's mother.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Excalibur}}'' takes the "Mordred is Arthur's bastard" version of the story and runs with it, playing Mordred as a half-crazed BastardBastard who wants his father's throne, sword, and power, but rejects his love, ultimately leading to a very messy MutualKill.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'': from a certain point of view, Clu 2.0 is just as much Kevin Flynn's son as Sam is. A combination of jealousy, poorly-worded directives, and just plain malice turned him into who we see in the present-day.
* In the original ''Film/TheOmen1976'', as well as [[Film/TheOmen2006 its 2006 remake]], the protagonist is a father who comes to realize that his son is the {{Antichrist}}.
* In ''Film/BloodDiamond'', Solomon's son Dia is brainwashed into joining the local militia. [[spoiler: Solomon pulls him back from the brink.]]
* Shingen Yashida to his far more benign father Ichiro in ''Film/TheWolverine''. [[spoiler:Which is promptly subverted later on, as desperation to avoid death made his father cease to be benign.]]
* In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', Ultron's ArchEnemy is his own creator, Tony Stark.
* In ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'', [[spoiler:John Connor suffers UnwillingRoboticisation by the hands of [=SkyNet=], making him an enemy to his parents Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese once [[FishOutOfTemporalWater time travel puts them all at the same time]].]]
* In ''Franchise/StarWars'' Episode VII: ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Kylo Ren [[spoiler:a.k.a. Ben Solo]] is this to his parents [[spoiler:Han Solo and Leia Organa.]] This reaches the peak when Kylo [[spoiler:kills Han]].
* In both ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' movies the titular monsters, or at least the first batch of them, are technically Gizmo's progeny, budded off when he gets wet. Who then decide to eat something after midnight and transform.
* In ''Film/MollysGame'', Molly and her father have an antagonist relationship, shown in both current-day scenes as well as flashbacks to her youth.
* Just as bad as she was in the book, Rhoda/Rachel Penmark is this in both film versions of ''Literature/TheBadSeed''. In ''Film/TheBadSeed1956'' and ''Film/TheBadSeed1985''

* In ''Death Wish'', the fourth book in the ''Literature/CalLeandros'' series, [[FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire Promise Nottinger's]] daughter, [[ManipulativeBastard Cherish]], is one of these, deliberately manipulating her mother, as well as Niko and Cal, for her own selfish ends, while continuing to prey on humans ''and'' sleep with her mom's ex, Seamus. She is ultimately disowned by Promise and [[spoiler:killed by Niko, after an incident where she convinced him that his brother, Cal, was dead, in order to send him on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against one of her enemies]].
* In the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', Jacen Solo/Darth Cadeus becomes this to his mom and dad, Han Solo and Leia Organa-Solo, following his turn to the darkside. He also manages to hit APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil with his uncle Luke, and CainAndAbel with his sister Jaina, which is the relationship that gets the most focus. Isn't he just a little overachiever?
* In ''Literature/TheBadSeed'', CreepyChild, StepfordSmiler, and EnfantTerrible Rhoda Penmark is this to her otherwise normal mother, Christine. Discovering that her own mother was [[spoiler: a SerialKiller]], Christine eventually realises that it's been [[InTheBlood passed on]] to Rhoda, and does her best to [[OffingTheOffspring stop]] her [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] daughter before the situation gets completely out of control.
* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series, [[MeaningfulName Mordred]] is this to [[spoiler: Roland]].
* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', [[EvilSorcerer Death Eater]] Barty Crouch Jr. is this for his father, Ministry Official (and dark wizard hater) [[TheWitchHunter Barty Crouch Sr]].
* In ''[[Literature/{{Deryni}} The Quest for Saint Camber]]'', Prince Nigel Haldane's eldest son, Conall, is this, going so far as [[spoiler:attacking his father with magic and allowing everyone to think Nigel simply had a stroke]].
* ''Literature/WarriorCats'':
** Breezepelt in ''Power of Three'' and ''Omen of the Stars''. He's the son of [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Crowfeather]], but he [[spoiler: allies himself with the ghosts of the villains in an attempt to overthrow the society of the characters.]]
** [[TheMedic Yellowfang's]] son Brokenstar is one of the first villains to be shown in the entire series. In fact, he was so evil that Yellowfang had to kill him to save [=ThunderClan=].
* ''Literature/TheChronoliths'': [[TheHeavy Adam]] [[BigBad Mills]] is the son of secondary protagonist Ashlee Mills, and is therefore protagonist Scott Warden's stepson. He's also a pure [[TheSociopath psychopath]] with [[LackOfEmpathy no conscience]], delusions of grandeur, and an unshakeable faith in Kuin, a mysterious conqueror who will supposedly TakeOverTheWorld at some point in the future (it is hinted that Adam believes himself to ''be'' Kuin). Born with his brain chemistry out of whack, Adam has no problem torturing his mother for information, having his stepsister gangraped for the hell of it, and attempting to murder his stepfather, all in the name of his [[TheFundamentalist crazed religious agenda]].
* ''Literature/SeekerBears'': Nanuluk the [[BastardBastard pizzly bear]] is this to his saintly parents, killing his father and trying to murder his mother (both allies of the heroes).
* In Creator/MercedesLackey and Creator/AndreNorton's ''Literature/TheHalfbloodChronicles'', the dragon Mya is this to her mother Alara. Alara is one of the kindest dragons in the setting, adopting the half-human, half-elf baby Lashana and eventually helping with Lashana's rebellion against the elven lords. Mya is lazy, vain, and a bully who views all non-dragons (and even many other dragons) as nothing more than playthings.
* ''Literature/TheRiftwarCycle'': Draken-Korin, Lord of the Tigers, is this to his father, Ashen-Shugar, Ruler of the Eagles' Reaches. While all Valheru are amoral ubermenschen who think nothing of killing anything that might be a threat, burning worlds down, enslaving races, or committing incest (Draken-Korin's mother is Ashen-Shugar's daughter), the two of them are different. Ashen-Shugar, through his connection to the mortal, Tomas, eventually develops a conscience, while Draken-Korin masterminds the Valheru plan to declare war on the gods, causing the deaths of billions across the cosmos. In the end it is Ashen-Shugar who seals the rest of the Valheru away, and Draken-Korin who tries to lead their escape from this [[SealedEvilInACan interdimensional prison]], ultimately crossing swords with his reincarnated father.
* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': Lilith, the First Monster and adoptive mother to most of the city, describes Malcanthet the Succubus Queen as her "foulest daughter." Malcanthet, in turn, hates her mother, and even had her raped and tortured at one point. Malcanthet has noticeably [[BioAugmentation modified herself]] to look quite a bit like Lilith, however, and [[spoiler:she cries in Lilith's arms when she's defeated. Malcanthet then sets them both on fire, killing herself but leaving Lilith alive]].


[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* On ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Lionel Luthor's relationship with his son, Lex, began as one between an {{abusive|Parents}} ArchnemesisDad and a tortured WellDoneSonGuy. Following Lionel's HeelFaceTurn in Season 4 (and Lex's own FaceHeelTurn shortly afterwards), the nature of the relationship changed to this, with Lex as the BigBad, and Lionel as the ReformedButRejected parent (and {{Mentor|s}} to TheHero) who tried to throw a monkey wrench into his son's {{Evil Plan}}s. It ultimately gets Lionel killed in Season 7, as Lex finally crosses the MoralEventHorizon.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': courtesy of a kidnapping by [[HeWhoFightsMonsters murderous]] [[VanHelsingHateCrimes vampire]] [[VampireHunter hunter]] [[DiscOneFinalBoss Holtz]] and a subsequent stay in the hellish dimension of Quor-Toth, Angel's son Connor goes from baby to emotionally-stunted, angry [[TeensAreMonsters eighteen year old]] in the space of a few weeks, and carries a correspondingly huge grudge against his father, whom he blames for his situation and Holtz's murder ([[ThanatosGambit actually a frame job/suicide]]). He tries to kill Angel several times, even going so far as to trap the vampire in a steel box and sink him to the bottom of the ocean. He eventually pulls a HeelFaceTurn, but it's not until he's had his memories wiped (at Angel's request) that he is able to let go of his anger and find something approaching a normal life.
** Later in the series, [[spoiler:Connor's memories are restored to give him back the levels of Badass he needs to defeat the demon he was destined to slay. This time around he is emotionally mature enough to appreciate what Angel did for him and goes on to be a powerful ally.]]
* [[BastardBastard Morgana]] on ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' after she found out Uther had lied to her for years about Gorlois being her father when in fact Uther himself was her father. After that, she wanted him dead, no matter what.
* Andrew Van De Kamp started out like this in ''Series/DesperateHousewives'' towards his mother. It is revealed that he has somewhat of a FreudianExcuse in the second season, as one flashback shows Bree calling his much younger self a criminal and forcing him to memorize a Bree-serving apology after he swipes a lawn ornament from Mary Alice's yard out of curiosity.
* Brenda Mensah to the father who abandoned her, Fred Ade-Williams in ''Series/{{Tinsel}}''.
* The Season 2 storyline of ''Series/BeingHumanUS'' features Aiden forced to confront a vampire "son" he exiled almost a century ago. Aiden hopes to find a way to reconcile and help his son return to vampire society, but [[spoiler:his hallucination of his own sire (whom Aiden killed in the season 1 finale)]] warns him about this trope. He even predicts that the son will ''always'' kill the father in such a conflict because, while a son might grow to hate his father, the father will always love the son he chose and created and never be able to ''choose'' to destroy him.
* In ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'', it's eventually revealed at the end of Season 2 that [[BigBad the Witness]] is [[spoiler: Cole and Riley's child from an aborted timeline]]. The entire series up to that point has been a paradox-fueled game of GambitRoulette in order to ensure a StableTimeLoop which ends with [[spoiler: them being in the right time and place to conceive him]].

* Heather Dale's "Mordred's Lullabye" focuses around EvilMatriarch [[Myth/ArthurianLegend Morgana Le Fay]]'s attempts at turning her son, Mordred, into one of these. She reminds him that his father (her brother!) is a thief and a traitor who has taken what is rightfully theirs, and that he, Mordred, is to die gaining them their revenge.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* In some versions of the Myth/KingArthur mythos, the treacherous [[{{Archenemy}} Mordred]] is Arthur's son as well as his [[BrotherSisterIncest nephew]]. This never [[MutualKill ends well]]. In fact, that final battle is one of the older parts of the Arthur legend. Before his and Merlin's stories fused, long before Gwenhwyfar and round tables and lake ladies and his having any ''particular'' knights, there's a record of that battle.
** Although the earliest record of said battle only records that both were killed in it, not even making it clear if Arthur and Mordred were fighting against each other or both were on the same side against their common enemy, the Saxons.
* In [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]], Zeus worries that his and Metis' son will overthrow him, as he overthrew his [[ArchnemesisDad father]] Kronos (who overthrew his own father Ouranos) before him. Fortunately for Zeus, they had a daughter (Athena) instead.
* OlderThanFeudalism: In ''Literature/TheBible'', King David's son, Absalom, murdered his half-brother Amnon at a feast to which he had invited all of King David's sons. This was rather understandable, as Amnon had had raped Absalom's full sister, Tamar. David eventually forgave Absalom...but all was not well. Absalom built up support in Jerusalem, promising justice for all, and showing a humility that his father never did. With all of Israel and Judah behind him, he revolted against David and seized the city, driving David beyond the Jordan River. He ruled for years as regent, eventually declared himself king, and was slain by his father's NumberTwo, Joab, in the Battle of Ephraim Wood. David, despite everything Absalom had done to him, [[AntagonistInMourning wept for his death afterward]]. A lovely combination of this trope, TheEvilPrince, and BitchInSheepsClothing.
** Would God that I could die for thee, o Absalom!
* Myth/RussianMythologyAndTales include the tale of Sokolnik, a [[BastardBastard bastard]] son of Ilya Muromets (the badass among badasses), who turned to a life of crime and eventually tried CallingTheOldManOut, with less than pretty results.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Dorian Roldan, who quite often serves as the GreaterScopeVillain of Wrestling/{{AAA}}, is this to his father and company founder Joaquin. That said, Dorian's treachery is rarely direct, with Joaquin usually having to deal with something Dorian just happened to set in motion without his father in mind.
* Also downplayed with Lady Apache and her daughter Mari in AAA, despite the fact Lady usually works {{tecnic|o}}a and Mari {{rud|o}}a due to Mari's sister Fabi ''usually'' being able [[HeelFaceTurn to convince Mari]] to [[MoralityChain join them]] on the tecnica side when potential conflict arises.
* Wrestling/{{Carlito C|olon}}aribbean Cool launched a hostile takeover of his father's company after taking on a full time roll again after being let go by Wrestling/{{WWE}}.
* Sin-D really was not treated kindly by her daughter, Amanda Ruffen. Not in Womens Xtreme Championship Wrestling anyway, where Amanda started out with an illegal stranglehold when matched against her mother, and things only went downhill for Sin-D from there.[[/folder]]

* Dahak the dragon god of treachery and evil is this towards his father, dragon creator god Apsu the Waybringer in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''. Running on hatred, Dahak hopes to destroy everything his father has built and targets his creations for the sheer pleasure of ruining them.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Horus, the favored son of the GodEmperor of Mankind, was also the first to fall to Chaos. Half his brothers fell too, whether through manipulation or already being antagonistic, the result being the utter clusterfrak that is the Literature/HorusHeresy.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' sets you out on a quest to find your infant son, only to find out [[spoiler:he was thawed out of cryo 60 years ago and now runs The Institute, a faction of amoral scientists. You can choose to avert the trope by joining the Institute though.]]
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Samara's loyalty quest involves her evil progeny Morinth.
* Sirrus and Achenar in ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'', to Atrus. They're ultimately enemies to everyone, including [[CainAndAbel each other]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 5'': Heihachi's father Jinpachi comes into play, showing himself to be an upstanding and kindhearted individual, unlike his son. Unfortunately, Heihachi challenged him for control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, imprisoned him under Hon-Maru, and left him there for over forty years (and ''forgot'' about it), leading to Jinpachi dying and subsequently [[BackFromTheDead being revived]] by a [[DemonicPossession demon that now controls his body]]. Heihachi's own progeny, biological and adopted, all hate his guts for very good reasons. Heihachi's grandson Jin Kazama also hates him, to the point that he uses his mother's surname instead of the Mishima name and un-learned the fighting style Heihachi taught him in favor of traditional Karate. Jin is on equally bad terms with his father Kazuya as well.
* ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' has this inverted with {{the sociopath}}ic Arcturus Mengsk and his heir apparent Valerian. Come ''Heart of the Swarm'', he's pretty much openly abandoned the Dominion, and [[spoiler:Arcturus is apparently content to kill his son alongside Kerrigan in order to see her dead.]]
* Liquid Snake/[[spoiler:Eli]] from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' has wanted to kill his "father" Big Boss since he was a kid, since he blames Big Boss for his "inferior" genes (or at least what he was led to believe were). He holds a grudge against his brother Solid Snake for being the clone with (what he thought were) Big Boss's "superior" genes, as well as being the one who killed Big Boss before he could.
** In addition, Big Boss was an ArchnemesisDad to Solid Snake, who he sent on a suicide mission in the original ''VideoGame/MetalGear1'' [[spoiler:where he had expected and planned for his BodyDouble, Venom Snake, to kill him]], and fought to the death in ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake''.
* Garrosh [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Hellscream]] becomes this through the plot of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. Son of Grom Hellscream, who grabbed the VillainBall and doomed the entire Orc race to be bound to demons, but later made up for it, Garrosh had one hell of a nasty legacy to live up to. A decent general and one hell of a warrior, Garrosh went further and further down into AntiVillain territory through the expansions as he got more and more responsibility he couldn't handle, and tried to make up for his father, his surrogate father's and his own mistakes the only way he knew; [[AxCrazy by the axe.]]
-->'''Garrosh:''' All I did... I did for the HORDE!\\
[[spoiler: '''Thrall:''' ]] You failed the Horde!\\
'''Garrosh:''' '''YOU''' MADE ME WARCHIEF! '''YOU''' LEFT ME TO PICK UP YOUR ''PIECES!'' ''YOU!'' '''FAILED!''' '''''ME!'''''
** The ''Legion'' expansion fleshed out a few character backstories, giving us [[spoiler: Velen and his son, High General Rakeesh of the Burning Legion.]] In this case, neither parent nor child knew that they were at odds during their clash [[spoiler: as Rakeesh was kidnapped, renamed, and raised by [[MagnificentBastard Kil'jaeden]] when he was young, while Velen was led to believe that his son had been killed.]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', Seven Sisters, the eldest daughters of the higher demoness Jahi Gallu, are very much antagonistic towards their mother. Each of them represents [[SevenDeadlySins a different sin]] from her youth and actually use nicknames based on those sins such as Lust etc. They've ended up working for archdemon Vaetris, Jahi's EvilFormerFriend, because they believe Jahi has gone soft and cares too much for the other races. The sisters' personalities range all the way from AxCrazy to ManipulativeBastard to NobleDemon with Wrath being the craziest and Sloth being the most sympathetic of the bunch.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': Manny Rivera's Granpapi wants him to become this. Granpapi himself was this to his own father, whose father was this to ''his'' father. The Rivera family is a chain of this.
* PlayedForLaughs by ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'''s [[EnfantTerrible Stewie Griffin]] (source of our page image), a sociopathic ChildProdigy and SissyVillain who antagonises both his mother and father with varying results.
* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}},'' [[EvilTwin Thailog]], a clone, has this relationship to his "father" [[TheHero Goliath]], and to a lesser extent his other creators, [[MagnificentBastard Xanatos]] and [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Sevarius]]. While he considers Goliath "weak," he rejects the latter two for trying to control him, but he certainly inherits their propensities for [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] and evil.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has the current Earth Queen, Hou-Ting, daughter of Earth King Kuei from the predecessor series ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Her dad was initially ineffective, being deceived by EvilChancellor Long Feng who kept himself the power behind the throne, but he didn't have an evil bone in his body and did a great deal of good afterward. Junior, on the other hand? She is [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen bad to the bone]]. She basically undid all the good things her father had done for Ba Sing Se, reducing it into a mess and overtaxing her people just so she could live a luxurious lifestyle. Plus, she hates animals while her father loved them, bounty hunters having hinted that she had probably eaten Bosco. And she had been capturing Airbenders to make them into her army to capture Republic City... at least, until [[spoiler:Zaheer kills her by airbending the oxygen out of her lungs]]. Fans all agree that it's the most NightmareFuel death in either series... and that she deserved it 100%.
** Baatar Jr. grows into one for his mother, Suyin, assisting [[KnightTemplar Kuvira]] in taking over the Earth Kingdom and him declaring that he's all but eager to take Zaofu by force.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' features an adaptation of the Carnage storyline. When Dormammu returns TheSymbiote to Venom, a part of it attaches to his cellmate, Kletus Cassady (who in this adaptation is a MadBomber rather than a SerialKiller), creating [[PsychoForHire Carnage]]. The two of them briefly work together as Dormammu's CoDragons, referring to one another as "offspring" and "dad". Following Carnage's attack on Venom's crush, however, and the latter's subsequent capture by Spider-Man, Venom undergoes a HeelFaceTurn and ultimately sacrifices himself to destroy Carnage and end Dormammu's EvilPlan.
* The 90's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon featured an adaptation of the Proteus arc, albeit one with a more positive ending: Kevin is ultimately calmed down and reconciles with his mother and father.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** Season 4 Episode 4, "The Sins of the Son", featured Charles Xavier's son, David, whose resentment towards his father for his [[ParentalAbandonment perceived abandonment]] of him has created two alternate personas: Ian and [[TeensAreMonsters Lucas]]. Lucas, who hates Xavier, orchestrates David's apparent kidnapping as a way to lure Xavier to him; during their confrontation, Ian and David are accidentally erased, leaving the {{telepath|y}}ic and [[MindOverMatter telekinetic]] Lucas free to do as he pleases...[[JustAsPlanned exactly as he planned it]].
** Wolverine's OppositeSexClone, [[BrokenBird X-23]], behaved like this during her first appearance, targeting Wolverine for the role he played in her creation and subsequent misery. It's very much portrayed as an angry daughter attacking her father; unlike the incident with David, it has a happier resolution, with X-23 ultimately pulling a HeelFaceTurn.
** The series also featured an EvilerThanThou variation: the ComicBook/ScarletWitch, who was institutionalised by her father, {{Antivillain}}ous NobleDemon [[BigBad Magneto]], due to her mental instability and RealityWarper powers. Broken out by rival BigBad Mystique, the Scarlet Witch spends the rest of the show trying to hunt down her father, who ultimately [[spoiler:has Mastermind [[FakeMemories brainwash her into remembering a happier childhood]]]]. The fanbase is [[BrokenBase divided]] as to whether he or his daughter deserves more sympathy.
