Examples:
* Heroism or Evilness
* Magic
* Innate ability to use precursor/alien/supernatural tech/items
* Ability to do something at extraordinary levels (e.g. lead - your mother did it, so do you)
* Right to something (e.g. rule - when this is taken farther than legal inheritance, for example, anyone else having it makes it somehow Very Wrong to everyone)

Generally things that science does not exactly agree with being hereditary, or things that are just too fantastic.
