One or more of a character's parents is a god, an angel, or one of those HornyDevils. Usually, if a character has Divine Parentage, then so will other characters in the setting.

Divine Parentage is important because the divinity is often hereditary, usually in an AllGenesAreCodominant way. Thus, someone with Divine Parentage can do things people who are fully mortal cannot.

If the divine side is dominant or prominent, then you tend to get a demigod.

The trope is OlderThanDirt. Many of the examples are related to mythology, and myths have many examples. Some of the more modern examples are retellings of ancient myths.

Related to HalfHumanHybrid. After all, these characters ''are'' half-human, half god - but since the gods are [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith usually thought of as looking completely human]], the "different species" issue doesn't tend to come up.

A step above a HeroicLineage, which is perhaps somewhat ironic since 'hero' was originally the ancient Greek word for examples of this trope (and in greek myth, due to how much the gods screw around, many heroic lineages can be traced to the gods, heck Zeus is Heracles'divine parent ''and'' great-great grandfather).

May be the end result of a DivineDate. A character discovering this parentage may experience a ReallyRoyaltyReveal (with divinity instead of royalty).

Compare OurAncestorsAreSuperheroes, and contrast GodOfHumanOrigin.



* Downplayed in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon''. [[spoiler: In episode 13, Hermes mentions "Zeus's grandson" as he watches Bell defeat the Goliath, implying that Bell's grandfather was actually the most powerful deity in their world. In the light novels, however, it was noted that Zeus is only his ''adopted'' grandfather, and he is as much a human as everyone else.]]
** [[spoiler: This explains why he was raised to be a HaremSeeker, since Zeus is infamous for [[AnythingThatMoves sleeping with everybody]].]]
[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Genesis from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'', an offspring of an angel and a demon.
* [[TheBigBadWolf Bigby]] from ''{{ComicBook/Fables}}'' is the son of [[AnthropomorphicPersonification The North Wind]]. He has powers over the weather as well some measure of immortality.
* Cassie Sandmark (the current ComicBook/WonderGirl) is the daughter of a human woman and Zeus. And as of the 2011 reboot, [[spoiler:Wonder Woman herself is now Zeus' daughter]].
* Tess Black who appeared briefly in [[SpiderMan Spider-Man]] is the daughter of the Norse god Loki and a human woman, something she is unaware of.
* ComicBook/{{Raven}} of ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' is the daughter of the demon Trigon and a human woman, something that causes her considerable angst.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* In ''FanFic/TheAssassinationOfTwilightSparkle'', it's revealed that [[PrinceCharmless Blueblood]] is descended from children produced with Celestia's second husband. Not that it saves him when he's found guilty.
* In ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'' [[spoiler: Emrys and Eirian]] are the grandchildren of [[spoiler: Merlin]] who is the son of a mortal woman and a Maia, an Angel.
* The basic premise of ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is that James Potter was Thor having a first shot at this humility thing and therefore, Harry Potter is in fact Harry Thorson.
* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Act II'': Kurumu's DisappearedDad is revealed to be none other than the [[SatanicArchetype Lord of Hell]] himself.
* In ''FanFic/QueenOfShadows'', the [[MonsterProgenitor mother]] of the Shadowkhan, Kagehime, is said to have been the daughter of the goddess Izanami and the Lord of the Underworld. As such, Kagehime's direct descendants, the Queens of the Shadowkhan, are treated by the rest of the race as semi-divine.
* A DiscussedTrope in ''FanFic/SevenDaysSurvivor'', where one character points out that this is a very real possibility [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei given the setting]], and that several characters - including themselves - could be descended from these types of people. It causes the protagonist to have a minor BSOD.
* In the MassEffect's [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8688354/1/Crucible Crucible]], there are 4 Turian clans of the North (one of which was the Vakarian) descended from the 4 sons of a turian name Makerm and Herz, a reincarnation of a star which basically made her a [[GodInHumanForm living goddess]].
** In the present, the only person with a direct god-parent was [[spoiler: Jane]] whose father was [[spoiler: Sam Shepard]], one of the many forms of the bare-faced turian that has been viewed as some kind of a disaster god by the North. He was actually [[{{Psychopomp}} God of Death]].
* In ''Fanfic/CrossoverChaos'', the entire Colmare family is descended from [[CrystalDragonJesus Xedra, the being that made the very first omniverse]]. [[spoiler: Why is this important? Because it's been revealed that Herobrine, Kyle, Luke, Lindsay and Jamie are all related by blood to xem!]]

* Perhaps the most famous examples in cinema are found in ''Franchise/StarWars''. Anakin Skywalker is half-divine, being the child of a human mother and the Force itself (which, yes, [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory does make Anakin's a virgin birth]]). As a result, his children by Padme Amidala, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, are one-quarter divine; and ''their'' children (Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo in the ExpandedUniverse, Ben Solo in ''Film/TheForceAwakens''; and Ben Skywalker in the Expanded Universe) are one-eighth divine.
* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'': [[spoiler:Much like the New 52 comics, Diana is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta. Though, in this adaptation, her conception was on purpose -- after Ares killed the rest of the Greek Pantheon, a dying Zeus severely injured him in retaliation. However, Zeus knew that Ares would one day return, and also knew that no one would be able to stop him. Only a god can kill another god, and Zeus was not long for this world -- hence, Diana]].

* In ''Literature/AmericanGods'' Mr. Wednesday tells Shadow that while it used to be common for gods to sire children on mortals, the [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly lack of faith]] nowadays means that he and most of the others are shooting blanks. Though there are some exceptional circumstances where it's possible, [[spoiler: foreshadowing that Shadow is Wednesday/Odin's son.]]
* Also Fat Charlie and his "brother" Spider from ''Literature/AnansiBoys'', although Spider got all the god traits.
* In the fourth book of ''Literature/TheImmortals'' by Creator/TamoraPierce, we learn that [[spoiler:Daine's father is the God of the Hunt, and her mother was elevated to a goddess of childbirth after death. Both of them are relatively minor gods compared to the like of Mithros and the Great Mother, though.]]
* The entire plot of the novel ''Oh My Gods!'' takes place on a Greek island at a private school for the descendants of gods, and almost every character is one.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''
** Susan Sto Helit is Death's granddaughter. By adoption. She can still walk through walls. [[LamarckWasRight Don't ask]].
** Susan briefly compares her situation with that of a classmate, whose great-grandfather was the god Blind Io, making her a hemi-semi-demigoddess. This doesn't seem to come with any powers, but apparently has enough prestige to get a good table at restaurants.
** Yet another: Lobsang Ludd (and his kind-of brother) is the son of Time.
* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' features a summer camp for demigods.
* Although [[spoiler:Bhelliom]] is ''more'' than a god, [[spoiler:Sparhawk]] in ''Literature/TheElenium''/''Literature/TheTamuli'' qualifies.
* [[spoiler:Aliera e'Kieron]] in the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' series.
* The ''Literature/ScarNight'' series is awash with angels and gods descended from gods.
* In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', Lúthien is the daughter of the Elven-king Thingol and Melian the Maia (a class of divine being roughly equivalent to a demigod or an angel). Lúthien often displays flashes of remarkable power as a sign of her heritage.
* In the ''Literature/BookOfSwords'', [[spoiler:Mark]] and [[spoiler:Ariane]] are both children of [[spoiler:the Emperor]], who is really [[spoiler:G-d]].
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/ShadowsInTheMoonlight" [[DreamingOfTimesGoneBy Olivia dreams]] of [[PhysicalGod a godlike being]] arriving to where a partly human, partly godlike being was [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured to death]], and turning [[TakenForGranite the torturers to stone]].
-->''"The youth they tortured was like the tall man who came?" he asked at last.\\
"As like as son to father," she answered, and hesitantly: "If the mind could conceive of the offspring of a union of divinity with humanity, it would picture that youth. The gods of old times mated sometimes with mortal women, our legends tell us."''
* In ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'', Set is both father and son to Thoth (and vice versa, of course), and Horus is the son of Osiris. The latter is a canon relationship in Myth/EgyptianMythology.
* In ''Literature/TheVampireDiaries'', Elena Gilbert is half angel or Guardian from her mother's side, who was also a Guardian.
* In ''Literature/TheSunSword'', the god-born - people with one mortal, one divine parent - are semi-common. They have SupernaturalGoldEyes, general superhuman physical and mental abilities, and usually some magic related to their divine parent's portfolio. Most importantly, the Two Kings of the Essilyan Empire are god-born (one is the son of the god of wisdom, the other the son of the god of justice), and more ominously, Kiriel, one of the main protagonists, is the daughter of BigBad and GodOfEvil Allasakar, with her heritage being a focal point of the MythArc.
* The main plot of ''[[Literature/ZeusIsDead Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure]]'' involves Apollo somehow resurrecting Zeus via one of Zeus's mortal children. The problem lies in finding out just who it is.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Cady from ''Series/{{Reaper}}'' ''might'' be the devil's daughter. [[spoiler: And Sam might be the devil's son. Though, even if the man who raised him turns out to be his real father, this trope might still apply...]]
* Ling'er and her mother Qing from ''Series/ChinesePaladin'' are descendents of the goddess Nuwa, as is their ancestress, Zixuan from the prequel series.
* Adria in ''Series/StargateSG1'' is the daughter of Vala Mal Doran and the [[AbusivePrecursors Ori]].
* This isn't true for [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Sabrina]]'s parents, but her cousin Pele is the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire.

* The lead character of ''[[{{Music/Hero}} !HERO: The Rock Opera]]''. Given that it's the story of Jesus with a SettingUpdate, and that Michael Tait is playing the lead character, he is also given a DivineRaceLift.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Literature/TheBible -- specifically, the New Testament -- says that Jesus Christ is this, as do some interpretations of the gospel. Major wars over the issue have been fought throughout history.
* Myth/ClassicalMythology
** Herakles, Perseus, Helen of Troy and many other classical figures were children of Zeus. Sometimes, in fact, Zeus would seduce a woman who was already a distant descendant of his through a previous affair. He sure got around.
** Zeus had more than anybody else, but there were other gods and goddesses who got in on the mortal action. Virtually every Greek hero is this trope in some way.
** Countless heroes of UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar, according to [[Literature/TheTrojanCycle the stories]].
** A number of Roman ''gentes'' (clans) claimed a divine ancestor. The one with the most prestigious ancestors were the ''gens'' Julia (UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar's one) and the ''gentes'' Romilia and Remmia: both claimed descendance from Venus through Trojan War hero and Rome's forefather Aeneas, the Julii through his elder son Ascanius (something Caesar wouldn't stop bragging about. The family name derives from Ascanius' other name, Julus) and the Romilii and Remmii through his younger son Silvius, with the Romilii and Remmii claiming ''another'' divine ancestor in Mars through Romulus and Remus.
* [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] was 2/3 god, since the Babylonians believed that if two men had sex with a woman and she got pregnant, both were the father. Gilgamesh was the product of such a threesome.
* In some versions of the story, Myth/{{Merlin}}'s father was an [[HornyDevils incubus]].
* And in some versions of [[Myth/CelticMythology Irish Mythology]], Cu Chullain was the son of TheAce god Lugh.
* The Emperors of Japan claim descent from the Sun goddess Amaterasu herself.
* It was common for nobles in parts of Europe to claim ''Odin'' as their ancestor long after the Christian era. The attitude of TheGovernment usually seems to have been,"If you keep peace on your estate and show up for battle when the king needs you, your ancestor can be whomever you want him to be."

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}: Gods, Spirits, Demons, [[TheFairFolk Fae]], Ghosts and the Celestial Exalted (about anyone with [[PowerLevels essence 4 or more]]) can bear or sire children, who inherit some of that power. One of the canonical examples includes a woman being impregnated by an earth spirit through an earthquake. The God/Ghost/Demon/Fae-blooded people are a few large steps above mortals, but they still don't have a chance against Exalted. Their parents have considerable difficulty with the Exalted as well...
* The entire premise of ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' is that your character just got a visit from their divine parent telling them it's time to get active.
* So, so many in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' it's not funny. Aasimar and Tiefling are Celestial-blooded and Fiend-blooded, respectively, and things only get wonkier from there. It's even possible to have [[UpToEleven a character who has Celestial, Fiend,]] ''[[UpToEleven and]]'' [[UpToEleven Dragon blood in his or her veins.]]
* The Primarchs from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' were created by the Emperor (who's NOT a god, [[DistinctionWithoutADifference just a highly powerful entity who's central to Imperial religion]]) using his own DNA, but weren't conceived in the normal way. How they ''were'' created is question with no clear answer, though.
** If you believe the {{Illuminati}} equivalent in the setting, the Emperor had actual children too, called Sensei, and they're either kind of equivalent to C'tan shards or Eldar avatars (who will eventually merge with the Emperor once he reincarnates as a Star Child), or, if you ask the Inquisition, they're heretical revolutionaries who need to be destroyed. Which is true will likely never be resolved, since the writers appear to have forgotten them.

* In ''Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung'', Siegmund and Sieglinde's father, whom they know as Wälse, is actually the god Wotan, though they never realize it.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The player character from the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series is revealed to be the offspring of [[spoiler: Bhaal, the god of murder]]. [[spoiler:BigBad Sarevok from part 1, the PC's childhood friend Imoen, and the five main antagonists of Throne of Bhaal are as well.]]
** In ''VideoGame/BaldursGateSiegeOfDragonspear'', it's said that the Shining Lady, leader of the "crusade" now seeming to threaten Baldur's Gate, is the child of a god. At first, that's implied to mean she's [[spoiler: a Bhaalspawn, like the player character]]. However, [[spoiler: she is actually an aasimar, a distant descendant of good celestial beings. The BigBad needs divine blood to open a portal from Hell, and the fact that hers isn't strong enough is a plot point.]]
* ''VideoGame/EternalDaughter'''s title protagonist.
* [[spoiler:Lloyd]] is the son of [[spoiler:Kratos]] in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', though possesses nothing that sets him apart from other humans [[spoiler: though he does sprout energy wings during the ending for some reason]].
* Kratos, from ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'', [[spoiler: is a son of Zeus, as many mythological heroes were in those days. This becomes funny when you meet and slaughter Hercules.]]
* Sanae Kochiya from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is distantly descended from a Shinto god. Bonus points for having her divine great-great-great-...-grandmother live with her in the same shrine. Sanae's power is described as ''the power to create miracles'', although it comes less from her divine heritage and more from her gaining own power as a living god ([[GodsNeedPrayerBadly by being worshiped]]).
* The descendants of the 12 Crusaders in ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'', who got their divine powers from [[spoiler: drinking the blood of the Dragon]] Gods, get these powers passed to them through blood inheritance.
* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', the Primordial Serpent Kaathe claims that the Chosen Undead is a descendant of the Furtive Pygmy [[spoiler:and the inheritor of the Dark Soul, the fourth Lord Soul, and the one destined to end the Age of Fire and usher in the Age of Dark as the Dark Lord.]]
* The Nephalem of the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series were the ancestors of the humans of Sanctuary, born from the union of renegade angels and demons, but who were weakened into their current human state by the Worldstone when Inarius got frightened by how powerful the Nephalem were. [[spoiler:With the Worldstone destroyed, humanity is beginning to get its former power back, and the PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' is among the first of the new Nephalem]].
** [[spoiler:Leah is the daughter of the witch Adria and the Dark Wanderer, a.k.a. Aidan from the first game, who became possessed by Diablo after sticking his soulstone into his own head. The magical power she wields comes direct from the Big D himself, and she is eventually used by Adria with the Black Soulstone to bring about Diablo's rebirth as the Prime Evil, the sum total of all seven Great Evils in one being]].
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** All of the recognized Cyrodiilic [[TheEmperor Emperors]] of Tamriel (the Alessian, Reman, and Septim dynasties) claim this from Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time and [[TopGod chief deity]] of the [[SaintlyChurch Eight (later Nine) Divines]] pantheon, in the metaphysical sense (imbued with "Dragon Blood"), dating back to Akatosh's [[BargainWithHeaven covenant]] with St. Alessia, [[FounderOfTheKingdom founder]] of the First Empire. In addition to the patronage of the Divines for the Empire, these Emperors serve as {{Barrier Maiden}}s, sealing and protecting Mundus (the mortal plane) from Oblivion.
** The series' [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] are the "children" of Akatosh and/or, according to some theories, [[PiecesOfGod fragments of his very being]]. This would also include those who are Dragonborn, mortals gifted by Akatosh with the immortal soul of a dragon, who are to serve as [[HunterOfHisOwnKind natural predators]] to dragons. Like the dragons, the Dragonborn possess instinctive knowledge of the draconic LanguageOfMagic and can use the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]]. The "[[PlayerCharacter Last Dragonborn]]" is one such example.
** The [[HornyVikings Nords]] still refer to themselves as the sons and daughters of Kyne (the old Nordic aspect of Kynareth, the Divine Goddess of the Air and Heavens), who in their old religious tradition "breathed" them into life by exhaling on the [[TheTower Throat of the World]].
** In the [[ScaryBlackMan Yokudan/Redguard]] religious tradition, Zeht (their aspect of Zenithar, the Aedric Divine God of Work and Commerce) was the God of Agriculture and the son of Ruptga, the "Tall Papa" and their TopGod. Following the creation of the world, Zeht renounced Ruptga, which is why Ruptga makes it "so hard to grow food".
** Demiprinces are a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] born from the union of a [[HalfHumanHybrid Daedra and a mortal]]. Their dual nature gives them an ''odd'' [[CloudCuckoolander perception of the world and time itself]].
** Umaril the Unfeathered, the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleid]] sorcerer-king who ruled the Ayleid Empire during the [[SlaveRevolt Alessian Revolt]], claimed that his father was the "God of the World-River" from the previous kalpa, or cycle of time. (Umaril [[ResurrectiveImmortality would return]] and serve as the BigBad of ''Oblivion'''s ''Knights of the Nine'' expansion.)
* [[Videogame/DungeonCrawl Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup]] has the Demigod as one of its [[MassiveRaceSelection many races]]. They have poor aptitudes (how much exp it takes to level skills) all across the board, gain experience slower and can't worship any gods, making them a [[SelfImposedChallenge challenge race]] despite their great stats.
* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda The Royal Family of Hyrule]] are descended from [[GodInHumanForm Zelda]] who was the {{Reincarnation}} of the Goddess Hylia, as such the RoyalBlood has been steeped in RoyaltySuperPower with almost every royal being presented as some sort of sorcerer. The family itself also seems to have the curious habit of of collecting MagicMusic and instruments.
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' occasionally has magical marriage candidates, but they usually don't have magical kids. For example, the Harvest King from ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade Animal Parade]]'' can fix magical trees, but his kids can't.
* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'': Dante and his brother Vergil are both the sons of a human woman and a devil named Sparda, who rebelled against his own kind and sealed them away. In the [[VideoGame/DMCDevilMayCry reboot]], they are instead the sons of a devil and an angel.

* Appears in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' as a character's "divinity" rank. Seems to be pointless, until [[spoiler:[[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]]]] unveils [[spoiler: [[ChainPain Enkidu]],]] which is a VariableLengthChain that grows stronger based on the divinity rank of the person it captures. He uses this to kill a number of [[TheWorfEffect should-have-been-challenging-opponents]]. Characters with Divine Parentage include (in order of original divinty rank): [[spoiler: [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]],]] a 2/3 deity; [[Myth/GreekMythology Herclues]], [[Myth/CelticMythology Cú Chulainn]], Caster [[spoiler: Theatre/{{Medea}}]] and UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat from ''Literature/FateZero'' are all demigods; and lastly Rider [[spoiler: [[Myth/GreekMythology Medusa]]]].

* Webcomic/SlightlyDamned: The Twelve Guardians [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith disguise]] themselves as one of [[FiveRaces five mortal races]] to go unnoticed and will sometimes have children with them (usually these descendents share physical characteristics the guardian's mortal form had).

* Lan of ''Webcomic/PublicHumiliation'' is Hades' grandson, which makes him a very powerful necromancer capable of starting a zombie apocalypse on his own, or bringing the dead back as free-willed undead with their original souls and everything, depending on his motivation.

* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' greatly implies that [[spoiler:Hades]] is Wonder Woman's father. When she points out that her origin story doesn't allow her to have a father, he resorts to a technicality. Whether or not it's true has been left ambiguous, and when Shayera suggests using the Lasso of Truth find out if he's lying, Wonder Woman rebuffs her, stating that she knows ''who'' raised her and ''what'' she was raised to do (more or less saying that it doesn't matter in the end).
