'''Basic Trope''': Time-traveling kid visits their parents to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.
* '''Straight''': [[TheCutie Mimi]] [[LukeYouAreMyFather appears under mysterious circumstances]] and claims to be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Roy]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Farah's]] future daughter.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Mimi insists that Roy and Farah get started on conceiving her right now. At gunpoint.
** Several people come back from many different timelines, each one where Roy choses a different member of his UnwantedHarem.
* '''Downplayed''': "Hey Roy, Farah." "Who are you?" "Oh, just a passerby who just happened to know both your names. Probably since I'm your daughter from the future. Anyway, have a nice day you two, bye." "Bye."
* '''Justified''': This is part of a StableTimeLoop. Mimi had to come back because Roy and Farah already met her in their past.
* '''Inverted''':
** Parent from the Past. A person goes forward in time to meet their offspring.
** Parent from the Future. Roy is from the future and travels back in time to visit Mimi, his daughter with present-time-dweller Farrah.
* '''Subverted''':
** Mimi is actually an agent of [[BigBad Emperor Evulz]] who has been sent back to ensure that Roy doesn't hook up with Sharon and produce [[ChosenOne Jon]].
** Farah points out that it is impossible to be their kid after they both wound up sterilized from radiation exposure.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Jon shows up from the future himself to prevent Mimi's meddling with his past.
** Mimi correctly points out it doesn't matter in the future.
* '''Parodied''': Mimi is actually an actress hired by Roy and Farah's [[ShipperOnDeck friends]] to try and force the pair to admit how much they really like each other.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Mimi is the daughter of Roy and Farah, while Jon is the son of Roy and Sharon. Mimi is an agent of Emeror Evulz, sent back to prevent Jon's birth, but Jon is an agent of another evil villain, and he's been sent back to prevent Mimi's birth, as the two villains have contrasting opinions on who is the ChosenOne. After a confrontation, Roy, Sharon, and Farah agree to let Mimi and Jon both exist, as they don't know who the ChosenOne is either. In the future, because of this, Mimi and Jon have a child, and that child becomes the ''real'' ChosenOne... [[MyOwnGrampa Roy.]]
* '''Averted''': Although time travel is possible in the setting, no one ever uses it to visit their relatives.
* '''Enforced''': "We want to show that Roy and Farah are the OfficialCouple, and it's a fantasy show, so how about their future daughter shows up?"
* '''Lampshaded''': "I've been working on my relationship with Roy for months now, and we're finally getting along okay. Then you come back into town and five minutes later, your kid from the future shows up! How is that kind of validation fair?"
* '''Invoked''': Mimi builds or buys a time machine specifically for this purpose.
* '''Exploited''': Since time travel is possible, and Farah wants to have kids, she refuses to date anyone if she hasn't met their time-traveling future offspring yet.
* '''Defied''': "My parents will have to work out their own problems in the past without me. It's way too [[ButterflyOfDoom dangerous to meddle with time]]."
* '''Discussed''': "Y'know, that new girl looks like Roy, but with Farah's coloring. Do you suppose she's their daughter from the future?"
* '''Conversed''': "There's a new little girl in the previews that looks kind of like Farah and hugging Roy. And the title is 'A Surprise From Tomorrow'. I call KidFromTheFuture."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Mimi's stay in the past alters it in [[ButterflyOfDoom little, unforeseen ways]]; unfortunately, this eventually spreads to affect the period of conception -- just enough that they ''don't'' concieve her, wiping Mimi out of existence. The shock of having their future child disappear further rocks their relationship, as Farah and Roy accuse each other of doing something horribly wrong. Ultimately, they break up, dooming Mimi to nonexistence.
** Farah and Roy really ''don't'' like each other, but now feel like they ''have'' to get together BecauseDestinySaysSo. Pent-up resentment, frustration and anger have massive, negative repercussions on their relationship. But Mimi never said they were happy together, only that they were her parents. Indeed, she thought that by coming back she could prevent their family from becoming so dysfunctional, but instead has created a StableTimeLoop that ensures their future misery.
** Mimi is {{squick}}ed out by seeing her parents her age in a relationship. This causes enough emotional problems for her to fail at whatever the reason was she came back.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** But then Mimi's own daughter appears and convinces her that she turned out alright in the end.
** From the first entry in "Deconstructed," Mimi's actions caused her to never be conceived. But because she is outside of the proper flow of time she doesn't disappear. She has to remain in the present as there is no home for her in the future, But one of her former parents decide to adopt her as a sister.
* '''Played For Laughs:''' Roy and Farah frequently insist that [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend they aren't dating]] and don't even ''like'' each other, and already had trouble convincing their friends... and now there's this kid running around claiming to be their child from the future? '''[[{{Angrish}} AAAUUGHH!]]'''
* '''Played For Drama''':
** Mimi claims to be Roy and Farah's future daughter... but Roy is currently going out with Sharon, who [[ClingyJealousGirl doesn't take the news well]]. Nor should she, as Mimi is [[AxCrazy willing to throw Sharon under a bus]] to insure her own existence.
** See the first entry for "Deconstructed," only Mimi ''knows'' that her appearance in the past will erase herself from the timeline. She goes through with it anyway, because something horrible happened in her timeline, and she wants to spare Roy and Farah from that fate, even if it means they don't end up together and have her.
