Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/TomoChanIsAGirl'': Aizawa Tomo is often called the heir of the school by her rather hard-core Karate instructor father Goro. Goro is also grooming their longtime neighbor Junichiro to take over. He is fully aware of the paradox and [[ShipperOnDeck how it is properly resolved]].

** Most forget that, coming from Konoha's most noble and elite clans, the Akimichi and the Aburame, Choji and Shino fall under this umbrella as well. Choji's father's main concern with Choji is that his nature is too gentle to be an efficient leader, and as for Shino...[[RunningGag everyone forgets about Shino...]]

* Souma of ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'' is the heir to a very traditional historical kendo family, which sort of (but also not really, as many characters lampshade) explains why he constantly acts like he's a [[BornInTheWrongCentury feudal-era samurai miraculously transported into the modern day]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/RobinSeries'': The Rahul Lama is the master of an ancient dying Tibetan martial and healing arts discipline whose grandson and apprentice Shen Chi helps him train pupils in the art and who intends to take the school and create a commercial chain teaching only the martial component after his grandfather's death. Shen unfortunately sees the healing arts component as a relic to be abandoned.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has an interesting take on this; Ryo Marufuji, outside of being the best duelist out of Duel Academy, is also the heir to the "Cyber Legacy", essentially the {{Tykebomb}} of the "Cyber-Style" of dueling that incorporates his legendary Cyber Dragon cards (and even has its own dojo in the mountains for teaching duelists how to use the style). This becomes a plot point in two ways: first, when he went back to the dojo and faced off with his former teacher (Duel Academia's ''principal'') for the dark half of the Legacy (the Cyberdark monsters he uses as Hell Kaiser), and in Season 4, when the heir to a rival "Psycho-Style" dueling school challenges him to determine which dueling style will remain in practice.

* Kenshiro of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' is probably one of the oldest examples. He is the legitimate heir of Hokuto Shinken, the most powerful martial art seen in the series, and regularly challenges the successors of others martial arts styles (mainly heirs to the different branches of Nanto Seiken, the 'rival' school of Hokuto Shinken).

He is the legitimate heir of Hokuto Shinken, the most powerful martial art seen in the series, and regularly challenges the successors of others martial arts styles (mainly heirs to the different branches of Nanto Seiken, the 'rival' school of Hokuto Shinken). However, among the four Hokuto Shinken brothers, the second son Toki was supposed to be the original heir, but due to radiation poisoning, this became impossible. Ryuken had to decide between the first son Raoh and the fourth son Kenshiro and he ultimately chose Kenshiro as the most suitable heir.
