->''"Well, I bought the salon from my mom, and Emma's... a teenager now, and believe it or not, she's actually going to Degrassi just like we all did. It's like some kind of weird deja vu."''
-->-- '''Christine "Spike" Nelson''', in a '''''Series/{{Degrassi}}: The Next Generation''''' DeletedScene.

When, rather than using SpinOffBabies (the main characters of an older series being made younger) you instead make a show about the descendants of people from the original premise. Sometimes evolve out of a KidFromTheFuture. May overlap with both GenerationXerox and LegacyCharacter, but can also exist independently of both tropes.

SubTrope of ChangingOfTheGuard. The current heroes may become KidHeroAllGrownUp.

Popular FanFic device, especially if there ''are'' canonical descendants: see NextGenFic.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The Japanese have done a few anime series about the fictional descendants of UsefulNotes/TheShinsengumi, including ''Tobe! Isami'' (''Soar High! Isami'') and ''Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken''.
* Japan does this a lot, actually. For example, ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has a different "[=JoJo=]" for each arc, but most/all are blood relatives one way or another (to exemplify: [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood Jonathan]] is grandpa to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Joseph]], who is grandpa to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Jotaro]], who in a subversion, is ''nephew'' to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Josuke]]!). Then double subverted with [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStoneOcean Jolyne]], who Jotaro's daughter.
** [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo Giorno]] gets the most distant relations to any other, infact his father side of his family is downright screwed up (his dad is Dio, no less!), but regardless he bears the birthmark [[spoiler:since Dio had stolen Johnathan's body]].
* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' mixes this trope with CrossOver, featuring the titular character; the grandson of ''Literature/ArseneLupin'', [[UsefulNotes/IshikawaGoemon Goemon XIII]], and Inspector Zenigata of ''Zenigata Heiji Covers all of Edo''.
** [[Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket And Ganimard III. And Lawrence III of Arabia. And Sherlock Holmes III. And...]]
** Lesser known is ''Anime/LupinVIII'', a 1982 series centering on Lupin III's descendant five generations down the line. Only a pilot was made, due to the estate of Maurice [=LeBlanc=] (creator of the original Literature/ArseneLupin) wanting more money than the producers were willing to pay.
** Most obscure is ''Lupin III Jr.'', a short-lived manga about Lupin's illegitimate son.
* While Chibiusa is always a main character on ''Manga/SailorMoon'', a later one-shot manga story, deliberately set in an alternate universe and timeline, starred the children of the Guardian Senshi, plus a brand new younger sibling to Chibiusa by the name of Kousagi. Almost all of the kids had the [[IdenticalGrandson same names and appearances as their parents]] except for Kousagi, who actually looked like her own character, but [[InSeriesNickname Chibiusa]] is the sibling with her mother's name.
** The manga had numerous one-shot Chibiusa stories that ran in a separate magazine.
* The anime ''Anime/FinalFantasyLegendOfTheCrystals'' was based on the world of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' and starred one of Bartz' descendants. Presumably the "Queen Lenna of Tycoon" is also a descendant of the original Lenna, though she's just a supporting character.
* ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid''. A SpinOff of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' (yes, a SpinOff of a SpinOff) starring Nanoha's adopted daughter, Vivio.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' was supposed to be this, but despite his own efforts, Akira Toriyama found it too difficult to continue the manga without Goku in the main character's chair.
** Inverted in that Bardock, the father of Goku both got an anime special and a little manga spinoff.
** Played straight with Future Trunks who is Bulma and Vegeta's son who gets his own movie.
* ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'' is about Kinniku Mantaro, the son of the original Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' sequel novel ''Frozen Teardrop'' takes the cast from the anime and puts them in the mentor roles while GenerationXerox versions of Duo (his son), Trowa (his student) and Quatre (his younger sister) do all the heavy lifting. [[spoiler:As does Heero Yuy, who was in cryogenic stasis the whole time.]]
* The main character of ''Manga/TheKindaichiCaseFiles'', Hajime Kindaichi is the grandson of famous detective character Kosuke Kindaichi, created by Seishi Yokomizo.
* ''Manga/ShamanKingFlowers'' follows Yoh's son, Hana, as well as the next generation Shamans.
* Ao Fukai in ''Anime/EurekaSevenAO'' is the son of the main heroes of [[Anime/EurekaSeven the first series]], Renton and Eureka.
* For the most part averted in ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega''. Out of the six (later seven) main characters, only one is actually biologically related to a main character from the classic series (Ryuhou, Shiryu's son).
* ''Manga/UQHolder'' is set in the 2080s some 80 years after ''Negima'' and the main character, Touta Konoe, is the grandson of Negi Springfield ([[spoiler:in reality, he's actually his and Asuna's clone]]).
* The main cast of ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'', ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', and ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' are mostly the children of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s cast, starring Naruto and Hinata's son Boruto and co-starring Sasuke and Sakura's daughter, Sarada alongside Orochimaru's son Mitsuki.
* Slight variation in the ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' SeriesFranchise: because the original Angels were the stars of a [[VideoGame/GalaxyAngel dating sim]] and BishoujoSeries, it would be a little offputting if they were all shown married with kids. Instead, in ''Galaxy Angel II'' and ''Anime/GalaxyAngelRune'', they have spinoff counterparts with other connections, ranging from Milfeulle's kid sister to Forte's combat protege. Vanilla actually ''does'' have a kid, but she's adopted.
* Ami from ''Manga/HanaNoMiyako'' has the... interesting honor of being in a ''{{VisualNovel/Tsukihime}}'' spinoff while also being the (biologically impossible) daughter of two ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' characters: [[spoiler: Caster and Souichirou Kuzuki]].
* This was part of ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'''s method of [[{{Macekre}} "tying together"]] the [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross three]] [[Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada unrelated]] [[Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross shows]] that were used to create it. This was done in the Masters Saga (''Southern Cross'') to tie it into the Macross Saga; the protagonist, Dana Sterling (Jeanne Francaix in the original), is portrayed as Max and Miria's daughter, and Bowie is (according to the non-canon novels, at least) the nephew of Claudia Grant ([=LaSalle=] in the original), one of Macross's BridgeBunnies.
* Canon ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' has done this with the descendants of Max and Milia from ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''; Mylene from ''Anime/Macross7'' is their youngest daughter, while Mirage from ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' is one of their granddaughters.
** Additionally, Sheryl Nome from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' is the granddaughter of Mao Nome from ''Anime/MacrossZero''.
* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid: Kanna's Daily Life'', which follow Kobayashi's [[ParentalSubstitute not actually adopted]] daughter Kanna, blurs the line between this and a regular SpinOff since it takes place concurrently with the main series.
* ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' got a sequel called ''Wolf and Parchment'', which stars Kraft Lawrence and Holo's daughter Myuri.
* ''Anime/YokaiWatchShadowside'' is a sequel to ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' set 30 years in the future. It stars Nate and Katie's daughter Natsume. In this case Natsume is actually older than her father in the original series (being thirteen instead of ten).

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'' and the majority of the teen hero characters from Creator/MarvelComics' [[ComicBook/MarvelComics2 MC-2]] lineup.
** ''ComicBook/SpiderHam'' eventually did its own take on Spider-Girl in the fourth issue of ''Amazing Spider-Man Family'' and the ''Spider-Ham 25th Anniversary Special'' one-shot. The premise was that Spider-Ham had a daughter with Mary Crane Watsow named May Porker, who decides to become Swiney-Girl after learning that she's inherited her father's powers.
* In another example from Creator/MarvelComics, three of the ComicBook/YoungAvengers (Stature, Wiccan, and Speed) are children of former Avengers members. A fourth (Patriot) is the grandson of the ''first black'' ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.
* The original ''ComicBook/InfinityInc'' was a Creator/DCComics series about the children (and wards, etc.) of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica. Effectively the Comicbook/TeenTitans of [[AlternateReality their universe]], though they lost this status when [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths all of DC's Earths were merged into one]]. They faded into obscurity soon after. Though the JSA itself was eventually reintroduced.
* Creator/MarvelComics wanted to do a spinoff of Comicbook/TheAvengers for a DVD. Instead of using the popular ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' franchise because characters were linked to controversial topics like drug-abuse, rape, and homosexuality, they made ''WesternAnimation/NextAvengersHeroesOfTomorrow'', which is essentially "Avengers Babies" with 12-year old children of the Avengers having adventures. No, really.
** ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' volume 2 #114 used a similar idea with a different conceit: The Marvel heroes were unable to return home following the ComicBook/{{Secret War|s}}, so they settled down and had kids. The story focuses on those kids, lead in particular by the daughter of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and [[ComicBook/XMen Rogue]].[[note]]Rather Carol Danvers, whose absorbed personality apparently overwhelmed Rogue's[[/note]]
* The short-lived incarnation of the Seven Soldiers of Victory in Creator/GrantMorrison's ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'' #0 included the Whip III, granddaughter of the Whip II (a NewOldWest {{Franchise/Zorro}} wannabe) and great-great-granddaughter of the Whip I (an [[{{Western}} Old West]] Zorro wannabe); I, Spyder, son of the original [=7SoV=] member (and traitor) Alias the Spider; and Gimmix, daughter of Merry the Gimmick Girl and, therefore, neice of the first Star-Spangled Kid, who was also an original [=7SoV=] member. In ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'' #1, the Bulleteer turns out to be directly descended from [[spoiler: Aurakles, the world's first superhero.]]
* Mention must be made of ComicBook/PlasticMan's son, who appeared in the ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' semi-sequel ''ComicBook/TheKingdomDC'' and a one-shot special, who is actually called "Offspring". Other SpinOffspring characters in 'Kingdom Come'' who got their own one-shots are Nightfire ([[Comicbook/TeenTitans Starfire and Nightwing]]), Kid Flash ([[Comicbook/TheFlash the Wally West Flash]]) and Ibn al Xu'ffasch (Comicbook/{{Batman}} and Talia; i.e. this world's counterpart to Damian Wayne).
* ''Fantastic Force'' was a team led by Franklin Richards after a PlotRelevantAgeUp.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* The sequel to ''Literature/TheIntercontinentalUnionOfDisgustingCharacters'' is called ''The Sick Kids''. Guess who gets the spotlight!
* ''[[http://percyjacksonfanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Whispers_in_the_Dark Whispers in the Dark,]]'' a popular ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' fanfiction, is about the daughter of Thalia and Luke.
* ''Fanfic/UndocumentedFeatures'': The high school students introduced in the ''Symphony of the Sword'' series include the children of some members of the [[SelfInsertFic Wedge Defense Force]], many of whom are around the same age due to Ragnarok triggering a baby boom.
* The fanfic ''[[http://technomaru.deviantart.com/art/Courage-the-Cowardly-Dog-Jr-175116851 Courage the Cowardly Dog Jr.]]'' is this, taking place 8 years after the [[WesternAnimation/CouragetheCowardlyDog original series]] ended and taking place in a big city called Somewhere rather than a small town called Nowhere. Courage Jr. takes after his father and protects the city from supernatural fiends even worse than the ones from Nowhere while dealing with his father's original enemies and befriending the daughter of one of his dad's worst enemies.
* ''Webcomic/AkiChansLife'' follows the daughter of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji and Asuka]] that also acts as the sequel to ''FanFic/TheSecondTry''.
* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fanfic ''The Brain Thief'' is about Corporal Sam Ramkin (Young Sam) and Meg Garlick ([[spoiler:Princess Esmeralda Margaret Note Spelling of Lancre]]) some 15 years after the events of the books.
* ''FanFic/FalloutEquestriaEmptyQuiver'' picks up about twenty years following the events of ''FanFic/FalloutEquestriaOccupationalHazards'', with the daughter and son of the leading couples. Don't think too hard about how two pairs of stallions had foals.
* The fanfic ''Fanfic/TimeFixersNicktoonsOfTheFuture'' takes place twenty years after VideoGame/NicktoonsUnite and centers around the children of Jimmy Neutron, [=SpongeBob SquarePants=], Danny Phantom, Tak, and Timmy Turner teaming up as they protect their worlds from the threats of evil just as their parents did.
* The [[Creator/Kilala97 Kilalaverse]] is this for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', focusing on the children of the Mane 6 and their daily lives.
* In the ''FanFic/BrideOfDiscord'' "verse", Screw Ball, the daughter of Discord and Fluttershy, becomes the main protagonist of the sequel ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/125653/daughter-of-discord Daughter of Discord]]'' and as the series goes on, the other children of the main six eventually do as well, with Rainbow Dash, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie's daughters even getting their own SpinOff ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/149385/cmc-the-next-generation CMC The Next Generation]]''.
* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'' (and its sequel): A handful of families from the time period of the original show have been confirmed as having descendants in the present day - the current King is descended from Prince Blueblood, and members of the Apple, Belle (as in Sweetie Belle) and Pants (as in Fancy Pants) families have been mentioned. [[spoiler: Trixie's descendent, Violet Lulamoon, is the Magi Supreme of the Magi-Of-Stars Guard, though she doesn't know her ancestor is the legendary "Blue Sorceress". And at one point, Page Turner admits to herself that her eight-times great-grandmother was Queen Chrysalis.]]
** The sequel, ''Picking Up the Pieces'', continued the trend:
*** In chapter 3, Page confirms the identity of ''another'' ancestor: [[spoiler:Shining Armor, who unknowingly sired a child on Chrysalis, is Page's eight-times great-grandfather.]]
*** Chapter 4 names the male announcer in the parliament forum as Record Melody, who is confirmed by Word Of God to be a direct descendent of Vinyl Scratch and Octavia Melody. Somehow.
*** Sacher Torte, head dessert chef at the hotel the Bearers are at, is (per Word of God) descended from the Cake family, something further hinted at by her saying she comes "from a long line of bakers and pastry chefs”. By extension, so is her mentioned cousin Mango Cake.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Several Creator/{{Disney}} sequels:
** ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'' follows the adventure of Ariel and Eric's daughter, Melody.
** ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' follows Simba and Nala's daughter, Kiara. ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' is about her cub brother, Kion. ''Literature/TheLionKingSixNewAdventures'' was a series of books written before the sequel starring Simba's son Kopa, though Disney [[CanonDiscontinuity doesn't acknowledge the books]].
** ''Disney/LadyAndTheTrampIIScampsAdventure'' follows Tramp and Lady's son, Scamp, but mostly ignores his sisters. This is what the [[ComicStrip/{{Scamp}} comics made before the movie]] did, too.
** The ''Disney/PeterPan'' sequel ''Disney/ReturnToNeverLand'' follows Wendy's daughter, Jane. She also has a younger brother.
* The 1980 animated made-for-TV movie ''A Snow White Christmas'' stars the daughter of King Charming and Queen Snow, also named Snow White, who's on the run from the wicked queen (who has returned and turned her parents to ice) and is rescued by seven ''giants''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Shaft 2000}}'' stars Creator/SamuelLJackson as the nephew of the original ''Film/{{Shaft}}'', played by Creator/RichardRoundtree who makes a cameo appearance.
* Although we see Creator/ErnestBorgnine throughout the 1997 film [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McHale%27s_Navy_(1997_film) McHale's Navy]], he is a Naval Admiral constantly referred to as "Cobra". It is not until the final scene when the main character, portrayed by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Arnold_(actor) Tom Arnold]], calls the Admiral "Dad" that we know that Borgnine is portraying his [[Series/McHalesNavy original character]] and Arnold's character is his son.
* The ''Film/AirBud'' movies transitioned into this with ''Air Buddies'' which focuses on the sports-playing Golden Retriever's puppies. Later movies however moved away from sports and more into common adventure.
* ''Film/AceVentura Jr.'', concerning the adventures of a fat kid with the classic Ace's hairstyle. A horrible idea, further plagued by the fact it is a sequel to a Creator/JimCarrey movie(s) that doesn't have Jim Carrey in it ''and'' is a sequel to a franchise that was fifteen years old at its release.
** For another Creator/JimCarrey example, see ''Film/SonOfTheMask.''
** Similarly, see also 1993's ''Film/SonOfThePinkPanther''.
* ''Film/TheFlyII'' focuses on Brundle's son.
* The Creator/EddieMurphy films ''Film/DrDolittle'' and ''Dr. Dolittle 2'' were followed by three direct-to-video sequels starring the daughter of the title character.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'': Sam Flynn proves to take after his dad.
** The AlternateContinuity of ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' plays it a bit sideways - Jet Bradley is the son of Flynn's friends Lora and Alan. [[note]] Which, from a certain point of view, makes him a ''younger brother'' of Tron and Yori. There's also a [[WildMassGuessing fan theory]] that he may be [[WesternAnimation/TronUprising Beck's]] User, which would bring it full circle.[[/note]]
* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' subverts this at the end: the theme music begins to swell as [[spoiler:Mutt]] picks up Indy's hat, but Indy grabs it back from him.
* Ultraman Zero, the main character of [[Franchise/UltramanZero a series of films]], is the son of Series/UltraSeven.
* There is a Disney Channel Original Movie called ''Film/{{Descendants}}'', which has many of the main characters being the children of heroes and villains from the Disney Animated Canon, including Prince Ben (son of [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle and Adam]]) and Carlos De Vil (son of [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella De Vil]]). All of them except Drizzy [[HighSchoolAU are teenagers]].
* The 1987 ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' film features Creator/DanAykroyd as the nephew of Jack Webb's Joe Friday from the radio and TV series ([[NamesTheSame with the same name]]). Interestingly, Harry Morgan reprises his original role as Bill Gannon in the film, now as a captain.
* ''Film/{{Creed}}'' features the son of Apollo Creed being trained by his father's friendly rival, Rocky Balboa.
* [[DarthVaderClone Kylo]] [[TheHeavy Ren]] from ''Franchise/StarWars Episode VII: Film/TheForceAwakens'' is revealed to be related to [[spoiler:the three leads from the Original Trilogy. Formerly called Ben Solo, his parents are Han Solo and Leia Organa, and Luke Skywalker is his uncle. Not to mention that Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala, the leads from the Prequel Trilogy, are his maternal grandparents.]]
* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales'', Captain Jack Sparrow is aided by two young adults, Henry and Carina, throughout the film. [[spoiler:Henry is the son of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, and Carina is the daughter of Captain Barbossa]].

* A go-to trope for many of Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's 21st century books. (Particularly the Literature/{{Petaybee}} and [[Literature/TowerAndTheHive Talents series]].)
* Once the staple of the ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series: The original central character, Bink, was supplanted by his son, Dor, who was supplanted by ''his'' kids, daughter Ivy and son Dolph.
** Unfortunately, due to the abundance of anti-aging magic in the Xanthverse, ''all'' these characters are still alive -- as well as their kids, grandkids, and great, great grandkids. Meaning, well, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters you know...]]
* ''Sons of the Oak'', a {{continuation}} of David Farland's ''The Runelords [[strike:Trilogy]] Saga'' that focuses upon the son of the Earth King battling an [[BigBad even bigger Bad]].
* The second and third books in the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' series mostly concern the children of Sabriel and Touchstone, the protagonists of the first book.
* Susan Sto Helit, star of several ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels, is the daughter of Mort, star of [[Discworld/{{Mort}} the book of the same name]]. Quite how old that makes Rincewind and Granny Weatherwax is unclear. [[AWizardDidIt Blame the History Monks]].
** Cohen the Barbarian's daughter (well, one of them) is a minor character in a couple of books. When Cohen is introduced, he's ''already'' very old so it's not terribly surprising that he's got a few full-grown children running around (what with all the ravishing).
* ''Savage Sam: Son of Literature/OldYeller'' follows the journey of Travis and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Savage Sam, the son of Old Yeller]] to rescue Little Arliss and Elizabeth Circe from Indians.
* This is the premise of the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series. There's a strong continuity spanning ''centuries'' of family lines that seem to have a propensity toward getting wrapped up in epic conflicts every couple decades or so.
* A fair number of the later-set ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' novels, although for the most part their parents are there with them. ''Literature/StarWarsLegacy'' is almost entirely populated by new characters and the descendants of the old heroes.
* The second trilogy in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' follows Phedre's adopted son, Imriel.
* ''[[Literature/{{Lensman}} Second-Stage Lensmen]]'' ends with Kim Kinnison and Clarissa [=MacDougal=] getting married. In the next novel, their children go on to become the most powerful beings in the universe.
** Kim Kinnison is himself the scion of the Kinnison line, with ancestors Ralph, Rod, and Jack (all of whom were at least semi-major characters in earlier books in the series), while Clarissa is definitely descended from Virgil Samms (the eponymous ''First Lensman'' of that book), probably through his daughter Virgilia.
* The last two books in the ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'' series revolve around the adventures of Anne and Gilbert's children.
* In ''Literature/WarriorCatsTheNewProphecy'', the [[SequelSeries second arc]] of ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the action focuses on Leafpool and Squirrelflight, kittens of TheHero and his LoveInterest from the first arc, as well as Brambleclaw, son of the BigBad Tigerstar. The third arc ''Power of Three'', is about the kittens of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight. ([[spoiler: Not really. They're the biological children of two ''other'' second arc characters, Leafpool and Crowfeather]]). Then the fourth arc ''Omen of the Stars'' focuses on the kittens of minor characters Birchfall and Whitewing in addition to continuing the points of view of the third arc. The sixth arc, ''A Vision of Shadows'', features two kits from a younger litter of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight ([[spoiler:their first real litter]]), who are even younger than the kits of the protagonists of series 3 and 4.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' is a particularly subtle example. Gimli and Legolas are descendants of secondary characters from ''Literature/TheHobbit'' (Gimli's father Glóin was one of the [[{{Jerkass}} meaner]] dwarf protagonists, and Legolas's father was actually an ''antagonist''). The protagonist, Frodo, is a nephew of hero of the ''Literature/TheHobbit''. However, Bilbo raised and treated Frodo as a son.
** Nearly everybody in the Lord of the Rings is the descendant of someone important in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' (since some characters are nigh-immortal elves or descended from them, in a few cases their ancestors are still around at the end of the Third Age when [=LotR=] is set). Elrond is descended from Eärendil, as is Aragorn (his umpty-great-grandfather was Elrond's brother). They're also both descended from Beren and Lúthien Tinúviel.
* ''Literature/PeterPan'' is just ''begging'' for this, since every female descendant of Wendy is eventually going to get picked up by Peter and taken to Neverland to be his new "mother". While J.M. Barrie never wrote any sequels, plenty of other writers have. Notably, there's ''Return to Neverland'' (a Disney sequel about Wendy's daughter Jane), the film ''Film/{{Hook}}'' (in which Peter grew up and married Wendy's granddaughter Moira), the book ''Lost Girls'' (which deconstructs the whole concept) and Gail Carson Levine's ''[[Franchise/DisneyFairies Fairies and the Quest for Never Land]]'' (in which modern-day Wendy descendant Gwendolyn gets her turn).
* Most of the Literature/VorkosiganSaga is about the son of the first book's protagonists.
* The ''Literature/AToZMysteries'' has the ''Calendar Mysteries'', following the adventures of Bradley and Brian Pinto (Josh's younger brothers), Nate Hathaway (Bradley's friend), and Lucy Armstrong (Dink's cousin).
* This was the original plan for the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, with Honor being killed and the series picking up roughly 20 years later following her son as he started his naval career, but plot developments in the ''Crown of Slaves'' branch series led to major events slated for the later books to occur sooner than intended. As a result, dealing with those major developments fell to Honor, since there was no way things could conceivably stay the same for the necessary 20 years, and she was spared.
* ''Son of Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' is, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as the name suggests]], about Tom-Jon and Talea's son going on an adventure with Mudge's pups.
* ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'' is a play, approved by JKRowling, which serves as this for the ''HarryPotter'' novels; it's script was published as the "eighth book." It focuses on Albus Potter, the middle child of Harry, and Scorpius Malfoy, his best friend and the son of Harry's [[TheRival rival]] Draco. [[spoiler:The villain also turns out to be BigBad Voldemort's daughter]]. While the concept was always popular in fanfic, the play itself is...[[FanonDiscontinuity pretty]] [[BrokenBase polarizing]].
* Inverted in ''Literature/SuperPowereds'' and ''Literature/{{Corpies}}''. The latter is a spin-off of the former and features the subsequent adventures of the Hero father of one of the characters in ''Super Powereds''. In fact, the main series takes place in a SuperheroSchool, so Hershel/Roy isn't a Hero yet, while Titan is a well-known name (forced to leave the business a decade prior due to a sex scandal).

[[folder:Live-Action TV ]]
* Page quote example: ''[[Series/{{Degrassi}} Degrassi: The Next Generation]]'' originally featured Emma Nelson, daughter of Spike Nelson from ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh''.
* ''Series/TheAdventuresOfShirleyHolmes'' (SherlockHolmes' great-grandniece).
* The 2008 ''Series/KnightRider'' TV movie and subsequent show was about the son of David Hasselhoff's character.
* In a way, the Sci-Fi limited series ''Series/TinMan'' does this: It's revealed that [[spoiler:DG and Azkadelia are descended from the Gray Gale - Dorothy Gale]].
* The entire premise of each new season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', with some extra generations thrown in.
* While there's a notable lack of family ties between them, three generations of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' share this trope's characteristics.
* The short-lived revival of ''Series/{{Minder}}'' starred Archie Daley, the nephew of the star character Arthur Daley from the original series back in the 70s/80s.
* In ''The New Tomorrow'', a spinoff-slash-sequel show to ''Series/TheTribe'', the children worship their god Bray, who was a character in ''Series/TheTribe''. They also fear Zoot (who is Bray's brother, and acknowledged in the new series as the devil), showing that quite some time must have passed for a religion to have begun to form around them.
* ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' begat a couple of movies that starred Ryotaro's Grand-KidFromTheFuture and [[EnsembleDarkhorse the Taros]], plus several characters that weren't even in ''Den-O'' originally.
* ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' is a spin-off from ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' with Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley as the main character, as well as Riley's little brother, Auggie. One of her friends is Farkle Minkus, who is the son of Stuart Minkus and [[spoiler:Jennifer Bassett, one of Shawn's exes]].
* The TV series ''Young Maverick'' dealt with the adventures of Ben Maverick, the son of Beau Maverick (and cousin of Bret and Bart Maverick) from the original ''Series/{{Maverick}}'' series.
* ''Kung Fu: The Legend Continues'' featured Kwai Chang Caine, the IdenticalGrandson of the protagonist of the original ''Series/KungFu''... so identical that he was also played by David Carradine. The series also features the younger Caine's estranged son Peter.
* The new ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' TV series on TNT, a revival of the original, focuses on the rivalry between John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing, and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby and Pam Ewing.
* ''Son of Series/{{Svengoolie}}''
* ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' has Spike Skullovitch, son of Eugene "Skull" Skullovitch of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.
* The 1988 ''Series/MissionImpossible'' combined this with an ActorAllusion by having Grant Collier (Phil Morris) be the son of Barnard Collier (Grant Morris).
* In the 2017 revival of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', BigBad Kinga is the daughter of the original villain Dr. Forrester, and her assistant Max is the son of Dr. Forrester's assistant Frank.
* Played with ''Series/RavensHome''. It's a sequel to the KidCom ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' with a GenreShift towards DomCom. Raven and Chelsea are now adults, recently divorced, and raising their kids together as roommates. The protagonists are their preteen children, however Chelsea and Raven still receive a large amount of screentime and usually have b-plots centered around them.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Since pro wrestling often tends to be a [[WrestlingFamily family business]], many sons and daughters of famous wrestlers of yesteryear go on to have wrestling careers in their own right. The results are mixed both in terms of booking and actual crowd perception. Some have careers that go on to ''outstrip'' those of their fairly well-known parents and grandparents by miles. (Who's High Chief Peter Maivia again? Most people nowadays will [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson know his grandson]], though.) Others have decent careers but not to the degree of their heritage. Some show obvious talent, perhaps equal to or exceeding that of their parents, but because of either a lack of crowd reaction, bad booking, or longstanding feuds between a promotion's boss and said family, don't ever break the glass ceiling. On the other hand, some wrestlers aren't perceived to have their parents talent but are pushed to the moon anyway because of said family connection. And within kayfabe, it gets more complicated. If a promotion goes out of their way to mention a young talent's famous family connections and work it into storylines, it usually signals that the promotion has big plans for that talent.

* In the 1990s Creator/TheBBC did a comedy follow up to their popular 1940s drama serial ''Dick Barton: Special Agent'' entitled ''Richard Barton: General Practitioner''. The focus was on Dr Barton trying to curtail his increasingly senile father's attempts to thwart entirely imaginary enemies of democracy in a small village, with flashbacks to the elder Barton's glory days. Interestingly, written by the son of Dick Barton's creator, Edward J. Mason.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Franchise/TheGreenHornet was originally introduced as Radio/TheLoneRanger's great-nephew. The Hornet and the Ranger were both created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker as broadcast content for Trendle's Detroit radio station, WXYZ. The relationship isn't that well known, though, since it wasn't referred to that often in the Hornet's series, and in the 1950s Trendle sold the rights to The Lone Ranger to another company, which prevented the relationship from being explicitly mentioned in any subsequent Franchise/TheGreenHornet shows or other adaptations.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'' is about Kyle, the son of the two main characters from the first game, but aside from him, that's it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'':
** In ''VideoGame/FableII'', the player character is descended from player character from the original game.
** In ''VideoGame/FableIII'', you play the child of Fable II's player character.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' played around with this on occasion. The fourth game, ''Genealogy of the Holy War'', had the main characters at the start of the game [[spoiler:die off halfway through and]] be replaced with their children. Many (though not all) of the characters in ''The Binding Blade'' were the children of characters in ''The Blazing Blade'', which is actually an ''inversion'' of the trope since ''Binding Blade'' was made first. (A couple of characters from ''Binding Blade'' were the parents of characters in ''Blazing Blade'', and [[BadassGrandpa grandparents]] of other characters in ''Binding Blade''.)
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'', starring the son of Cecil and Rosa, the main characters of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''. There's also the daughter of [[BareFistedMonk Yang]] and Sheila joining in.
* The ''VideoGame/MrDriller'' series stars Susumu Hori, who is the son of ''VideoGame/DigDug''s Taizo Hori and of Kissy from the little-known ''Baraduke''. Both father and son have made appearances in each other's games since the first ''Mr. Driller'' game.
* The player character of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' is a direct descendant of the player character in the original game.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'':
** At least some of the player characters in are apparently the descendants of the player characters from the original GBA games (example: Matthew, TheHero, is Isaac's son, and [[GenerationXerox looks and plays a lot like him]]). Due to the series' extensively developed {{Shipping}} community, along with the equally awe-inspiring ShipToShipCombat, this may have some interesting results in the fandom.
** In fact, almost all of the characters are descended from the heroes or minor characters. Matthew's mother is revealed to be [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Jenna]], Tyrell's father is Garet, but he is apparently unrelated to Rief, Mia's son. Rief's sister apparently develops a crush on Piers, ruling him out as a possible father. Karis is Ivan's daughter, but no indication is given as to who her mother might be. The remaining characters are Eoleo, who is the son of Briggs and was actually seen in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunTheLostAge'' as a baby, and Himi, daughter of minor characters Susa and Kushinada from the same game. The only character whose parentage is ambiguous is Amiti, although [[spoiler:there's strong indications that Alex is his father in the ending]]. Interestingly, while Isaac and Garet show up, and Mia, Ivan, and Piers are frequently mentioned, there's barely any talk of Jenna, and Felix and Sheba are conspicuously absent.
* The fairly mental Amiga/Atari ST game ''VideoGame/{{Wizkid}}'' was a sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Wizball}}'', and Wizkid was, unsurprisingly, Wizball's son.
* Providing the page image, ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' features Kuninushi, the son of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''[='=]s Susano and Kushi, teaming up with Chibiterasu, son of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''[='=]s protagonist Amaterasu (as well as one of the cutest things ever). Also worthy of mention are the brush gods' children.
* ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry: Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust'' features Larry Laffer's nephew, Larry Lovage as the main character in both games.
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'':
** ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' takes place two generations after ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon1''. The protagonist inherits his grandfathers (the original protagonists) farm and begins living in Flowerbud Village. The only member of the first game left in town is Ellen [[spoiler:and she dies if you marry her granddaughter Elli.]]
** ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS'' and its DistaffCounterpart ''DS Cute'' take place roughly 100 years after ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' and ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonFriendsOfMineralTown''. Everyone is an [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Grandchild]] and the valley folk fall in love with the [[ReincarnationRomance same people]]. The only differences are their [[{{flanderization}} characterizations]], some designs, and their names ([[DubNameChange in Japan]]). Unlike ''64'', this was more an excuse to explain why they're reusng the characters. The DS games feature many errors and oddities caused by the fact it's a sequel and not a reimagining.
* ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'': While Graham hasn't exactly retired from adventuring, the [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIII third]], [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIV fourth]], [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVI sixth]], and [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVII seventh]] games followed [[UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn his kids]].
* Isa, the male protagonist of ''VideoGame/SinAndPunishmentStarSuccessor'', is the son of the two protagonists of the first ''VideoGame/SinAndPunishment''.
* ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur V]]'' has Sophitia's kids becoming the new main characters.
* ''VideoGame/RedFaction'' did this with its spinoff movie, Origins, and last game, Armageddon - the protagonists of each, Jake and Darius Mason respectively, are the son and grandson of Alec Mason, protagonist of Guerrilla.
* ''VideoGame/LandsOfLore 2'' follows of the son of the ''villain'' of the first game.
* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' features Claude Kenny, son of two major characters from the original.
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarII'' has Rolf discovering that he's descended from Alis Landale, the heroine of the first game. Since Chaz of the series' next chronological installment was orphaned as a child, we have no idea whether or not he's related to them, but he looks almost exactly like Rolf except for his blond hair.
** This is the entire premise of ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIII''. The game is split into three parts. At the end of the first two parts, the player character marries one of their female party members and their offspring is the player character of the next part.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Fate}}'' games give you the option to play this trope straight, letting you retire a character who's completed the game's challenges and pass one possession of your choice down to a new-made "descendent".
* ''VideoGame/HerbertsDummyRun'' was a MissionPackSequel to ''VideoGame/{{Pyjamarama}}'' starring the son of that game's protagonist.
* ''VideoGame/RogueLegacy'' has an interesting twist - the player character in each play-through is the descendent of the previous run's character. Given the [[NintendoHard nature]] of the game, the family line becomes quite long.
* ''[[VideoGame/ChuckRockIISonOfChuck Chuck Rock II: Son of Chuck]]'' stars the infant son of the original game's protagonist.
* ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKong Donkey Kong Jr.]]'' is a rare case where the ''villain's'' son is the SpinOffspring.
** The ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games star either the son (or maybe grandson, [[FlipFlopOfGod there's conflicting information]]) of the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' (who now goes by Cranky).
* ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' focuses on Heather Mason, the daughter of original game protagonist Harry Mason.
* Often done in ''VideoGame/TheSims'', since most new generations of the game involve a nominal 25-year time shift in one direction or the other to open it up to new characters and scenarios. The most obvious example is ''VideoGame/TheSims2'', which includes the four pre-made playable children from the original games as adult protagonists, and adds a few more like Brandi Broke (daughter of Bob and Betty Newbie) and Tara Kat (implied to be the adopted daughter of Ginia Kat).
* More of an AllThereInTheManual than something explicitly stated: [[VideoGame/CommanderKeen Billy Blaze]] is the grandson of [[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D B.J. Blazkowicz]], with an Anglicized last name.
* ''VideoGame/RecordOfAgarestWar'' is basically SpinOffspring: The Video Game. The original in the series features five chapters and each ends with the hero [[DatingSim romancing one of several female companions]] and having a kid who grows up to become the hero of the following chapter. Lather, rinse, repeat.
* The ''VideoGame/FantasyZone'' portable installment ''Fantasy Zone Gear'' stars Opa-Opa's son, Opa-Opa Jr.
* ''Trials Of The Blood Dragon'' stars the children of the hero and love interest of ''Videogame/FarCry3BloodDragon''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Pitfall}}'': The Mayan Adventure, an early Windows95 game, featured Pitfall Harry Jr, the son of the protagonist from the original 8-bit Pitfall, whom the younger Pitfall Harry has to rescue.
* ''VideoGame/HeroAndDaughter'': {{Discussed}} in a RandomEvent:
--> Goral: "You oughta marry, have a kid... To be the protag of Hero & Daughter 2!"
* The main character of ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar 4'' JD Fenix is the son of Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud, the protagonist and a major character of the first 3 ''Gears of War'' games, respectively.
* Two of the spinoffs of the [[ProtagonistTitle protagonist-titled]] ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' series, ''VideoGame/LaytonBrothersMysteryRoom'' and ''VideoGame/LaytonsMysteryJourneyKatrielleAndTheMillionairesConspiracy'', respectively feature his son Alfendi and daughter Katrielle as the protagonists.
* ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', of a sort: [[spoiler:VisualNovel/{{Phoenix Wright|AceAttorney}} adopted Trucy as his daughter, and the titular protagonist is Trucy's biological brother, effectively making this game a Step-Spin-Offspring.]]
* ''The VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead III'' features Lisa Rogan, the daughter of ''The House of the Dead'' protagonist Thomas Rogan, as the player 1 character. In the final chapter, Daniel Curien, the son of ''[=THotD1=]'' BigBad Dr. Roy Curien, becomes the player 2 character.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse'' features Alucard, the son of recurring BigBad {{Dracula}}, as an available sidekick character, but it wasn't until ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' that he was given a more significant role.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' series gives us quite a few of these examples, given that they all take place in the same world:
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenIII'' has Belle (the daughter of Meg from the first two games in the series), Rico (the daughter of Sancho from the first), Fred (the grandson of Maximillian from the first two), Sharon (the daughter of Milia from the first), Hugo (the son of Lucia from the second, who's also playable here), Caesar and Albert Silverberg (the grandsons of Leon from the first two and the nephews of Mathiu from the first), Emily (the daughter of Ronnie Bell and Mose from the first), and Sanae Yamamoto (the daughter of Freed and Yoshino from the second).
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenIV'' [[InvertedTrope inverts]] this due to taking place 150 years prior to the first game, but it introduces Rachel (the ancestor of Camille from the first game) and Elenor Silverberg (the ancestor of the Silverberg line). There are also some other implied ancestors, with Mitsuba looking an awful lot like Kasumi from the first two games, Rita bearing a resemblance to Meg from the first two, and Gary and Ema potentially being ancestors to the Maximillian family (and their associated Maximillian Knights).
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' introduces Nelis (the descendant of Pablo from the fourth game). It also features Shun Min as a child, who would later go on to marry Hai Yo from the second game.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The main characters of ''Webcomic/UmlautHouse 2'' are mostly the kids and students of the characters from the first comic. Two of whom, Volair and Saundra's son Pierce and Jake and Rick's daughter Rhonda, were actually introduced [[KidFromTheFuture a year before "1" ended.]]
* ''Webcomic/OriginalLife'' follows the children of Fisk Black, main character of ''Webcomic/BetterDays''.
* Violet, of ''Webcomic/ComingUpViolet'' was in ''Webcomic/FurWillFly'' but she was about six (instead of in high school) and her mother and stepfather were more significant characters in the latter series/
* Act 6 of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has an inversion, introducing teenaged AlternateUniverse versions of the main characters' biological parents. They also consider the alternate versions of the main characters as their parents/grandparents/older brother, since due to time shenanigans they were older in this universe.
* The title characters of ''Webcomic/NicoleAndDerek'' are the children of the main couples from ''Webcomic/YouSayItFirst'' and ''Webcomic/NamirDeiter'', respectively.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Creator/TeamFourStar's LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' featured Puddin, the daughter of Dumplin, their player character from their ''[[VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse Xenoverse 1]]'' run. For bonus points, the episodes where they unlock all the Frost Demon abilities featured ''Puddin's'' son, Frogurt, and the episode where they unlock the Saiyan abilities featured Spudz, who's [[spoiler:another child of Dumplin's (or rather, his future self [[TokenEvilTeammate Mr. Popo]]), and therefore Puddin's half[[ExtraParentConception ish]]-brother.]]
* WebSite/TheOnion had an article in 2002 previewing the second Gulf War as if it was a movie sequel and mentioned that ''Gulf War II'' would feature the son of one of the main characters from the first one.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/JamesBondJr'' (claimed by the theme song to be Film/JamesBond's {{nephew|ism}}, because although Bond did enough sleeping around that he probably could staff a spy agency with his juniors, you [[ChasteToons can't say that]] in the title sequence of a SaturdayMorningCartoon!)
* In a roundabout way, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''; though Terry [=McGinnis=] is Bruce Wayne's protege rather than his son [[spoiler:it eventually comes out in the FullyAbsorbedFinale on ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' that thanks to Cadmus, Terry biologically ''is'' Bruce's son]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePebblesAndBammBammShow''
** And to complete the cycle, the show had a spiritual [[SpinoffBabies spinoff baby spinoff]] years after: ''WesternAnimation/CaveKids: Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm''. It was ahead of its time, but it got ScrewedByTheNetwork.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheOzKids'', which starred Dorothy's children Dot and Neddy, the Tin Boy, Scarecrow Jr., Jack Pumpkinhead Jr., the Cowardly Lion's cubs Boris and Bela, the Wizard's son Frank, and Glinda's daughter Andrea.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', SequelSeries to ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', features a few descendents of the characters from the original show:
** Tenzin, the son of Aang and Katara, as the Airbending mentor to his father's latest incarnation. He has three, later four, children of his own, also Airbenders.
** Toph's daughter Lin Beifong as the local [[DaChief chief of police.]]
** The season 1 finale gives us Zuko's grandson [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething General]] [[DeadGuyJunior Iroh]].
** Season 2 introduces Tenzin's older siblings [[DeadGuyJunior Bumi and Kya]], the [[BadassNormal former a]] [[MuggleBornOfMages non-bender]] and the latter a [[MakingASplash waterbender]]. It explores some of the interaction between them and the not-exactly-stellar job Aang did in raising them as a group.
** Season 3 gives us Toph's other daughter (and Lin's half-sister) [[ReformedCriminal Suyin]], founder and leader of [[AbsurdlyCoolCity Zaofu]] and mother of five. It also explores Lin and Suyin's strained relationship, and the also not-exactly-stellar job Toph did in raising them.
** Season 4 gives us Izumi, Zuko's daughter and the current Fire Lord.
* It's never made clear the relationship between ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Gadget Boy|AndHeather}}'', particularly if it's the same character at different ages or two distinct ones such as father and son. Heather is not unlike an older Penny, but the two girls are clearly different.
* ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansTheSeries'' focuses on Pongo and Perdita's puppies...well, most of them. Lucky, Cadpig and Rolly are the leads, while Dipstick, Whizzer, Two-Tone, Patch, and Tripod (who's new to the series) are side characters. Jewel is TheGhost.
* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'': Two of the protagonists (Jake Kong Junior and Eddie Spencer Junior) are sons of protagonists (Jake Kong Senior and Eddie Spencer Senior) of the series it spun from.
* ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeAndSon'': Popeye and Olive Oyl finally marry and have a son named Popeye Jr. (usually called Junior). Bluto marries a woman named Lizzie, has a son named Tank, and just like his father is with Popeye, he is a rival with Junior.
* WordOfGod is that Pac-Man's parents in ''WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures'' are the original Mrs. and Mr. Pac-Man, thus technically making the protagonist Pac Jr.
* ''Toys/MonsterHigh'' is a series about the ''children'' of famous monsters such as Dracula and the Mummy who go to the same high school. Similarly, the spinoff ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'' is about the children of famous fairy tale characters.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' introduces Kion, the son of Simba and Nala from ''Disney/TheLionKing''. It also features their daughter from the second film, Kiara.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiritRidingFree'' features the son of ''WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther'' had a brief spin-off in the mid 80s, ''Pink Panther and Sons,'' which predominantly featured the Panther's children, Pinky and Panky, as well as a rainbow-colored assortment of other panther children.
* ''Literature/TheFamousFive'' received a cartoon called ''Famous 5: On The Case'' in 2008. It was set in contemporary times and starred the children of the original characters: Max, Dylan, Jo, and Allie. It also used GenerationXerox (for example, George's tomboyish daughter Jo hates being called "Jyoti").
* ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' had an unsuccessful pilot for a revival series called ''Wacky Races Forever''. Two new characters featured in the pilot were Parker and Piper Perfect, who were the children of Peter Perfect and Penelope Pitstop.
