* Viserys Targaryen in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. He raised his sister, protected (though abused) her all her life, and -- by their family's tradition -- should've married her, had circumstances been better. When it's time to marry her off, he barely goes through with it.



* On (different show based on the same piece of history), Lucrezia is the one person her extremely violent brother would never dream of hurting. They both adore each other, but Cesare actually takes the lead, making it more Litte Sister Attraction.

Sometimes it's suggested that it's not so much that she ''wants'' him. Rather that she doesn't want to lose her brother to all those other girls who are stealing him away from her -- so she decides she'll provide her brother with whatever it is he seems to want from other girls. This is still rather {{squick}}y, but might be a little closer to the innocence of FatherIWantToMarryMyBrother. Sometimes might be part of a TokenMiniMoe.

The less common flip side of this is Little Sister Attraction -- when it's the elder brother who develops the attraction to the younger sister. Often has something to do with [[BigBrotherInstinct needing to protect her]], a fear tha that someone else might hurt her, or break her heart, or that other guys just aren't good enough for her. And like its counterpart, it almost always includes the idea that this sibling is ''theirs'', and they don't want someone else to steal them.

May or may not be a factor with a LittleSisterHeroine.

sister, you're looking at LittleSisterHeroine, although both can occur simultaneously.

** Even worse with Ganta and Shiro - [[spoiler:they're stepsiblings, and Shiro loves Ganta even though she's just a sacrifice so that he can live. Ganta himself was conceived as a 'homunculus' by his mother, but she warmed up to him and adopted an albino instead (implied to have been abandoned at birth for obvious reasons). The resulting rape of all things good in her (by her father-figure) leads to her SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum. Also, her ultimate goal is to get married to death by Ganta's blood bullets]].

* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'': Asuka Mizunokuji, younger sister of baseball-nut Tobimaro and his rival Mendo's [[ArrangedMarriage fiancee]], was raised in isolation due to family tradition and as a result she's terrified of the mysterious, monstrous ''man-folk'' (not that she should be, she's one of the [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength strongest human characters]] in the series). Because she was told that "big brothers are the best kind of men", Asuka fell in love with Tobimaro, who is squicked out of his mind but can't do a lot about it because Asuka is genuinely ([[ComedicSociopathy if hilariously]]) screwed-up due to how... specially she was raised. [[spoiler:She eventually ''does'' fall for Mendo... after it's explained that ''he's'' a big brother too.]]

* Done in the ''Literature/{{Darkover}}'' series with ''Stormqueen!'' Everyone's already disturbed by the father suggesting he marry off his daughter to her half-brother as a way to resolve an inheritance crisis, but then Dorilys starts to get into the idea, and Donal gets used to it...
* Gender-inverted by the Lannisters in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Sister Cersei is [[BrotherSisterIncest down to do the dirty deed]] with brother Jaime... as long as she has him under her thumb, anyway, and when they are young she manipulates him into joining a brotherhood that prohibits marriage so that he won't marry anyone else. She has no intention of keeping it exclusive on her end, however, and wants to keep their extracurriculars on the DL; it's ''Jaime'' who wants to go public with their relationship and give it the benefit of clergy.

[[AC:Live Action TV]]
* In ''Series/TheBorgias'', Lucrezia and Cesare seem a little too close, with her saying that she will never love her husband as much as she loves him. Cesare seems to reciprocate, saying that if her husband proves "ungallant", "I will cut out his heart with a dinner knife, and serve it to you", in a very low, breathy whisper, while nearly giving her a HeadbuttOfLove, and this is just after he has carried her up to her bed on her wedding day. [[TruthInTelevision Given the historical characters they're based on]], though, it would be surprising if there ''wasn't'' a lot of incestuous implications in the show.
** In Season 3 Episode 3 [[spoiler: they explicitly consummate their attraction, finally moving away from the "subtext" and into straightforward "text"]].

* ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'': Sylvia is very obviously attracted to her elder brother Sirius, won't tolerate an unkind word against him, and is quick to sing his praises. This seems to generally be because Sirius is thought to possibly be the {{Reincarnation}} of Apollonius, who was the lover of Celiane, whom Silvia is a reincarnation of. When Apollo is discovered and is found to be a very strong candidate for Apollonius's reincarnation, she absolutely refuses to believe it. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that ''both'' Sirius and Sylvia are reincarnations of Celiane. The attraction Sylvia felt wasn't romantic love, it was the unconscious desire of her soul to reunite with its other half.]]

* In ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}'', Kirino always wanted to marry her brother since she was a little girl. [[spoiler: They eventually start dating and hold a fake wedding. They do break up and say they will be normal siblings though it is implied that they are still secretly together at the end of the novel]].
