* Fat Freddy's Cat from Gilbert Shelton's ''Series/FreakBrothers'' has three nephews who finish each other's sentences in the time-honored manner. They actually ask him why so many cartoon characters have nephews and nieces. His answer is pretty much the same as the one on this page, at which they ask, "So are you saying that Huey Dewey and Louie are the illegitimate sons of Donald and Daisy Duck?"

* ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' has a few instances:
** Apparently, viewers of the ''SaturdaySupercade'' cartoon claim that Pauline was said to be Mario's niece back when it aired. This would be a typical example, if not for the fact that [[HilariousInHindsight we know who Mario's brother is]].
** The instruction booklet of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' (in the words of [[SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong Cranky Kong]]) describes Diddy as "Donkey's little nephew wannabe." Given that they're different species (Donkey's a gorilla and Diddy's a monkey) the likelihood of them actually being related is extremely small, but the Kong family itself seems to be very diverse, spanning many different species of ape, indicating that one needs only be a primate to be called 'Kong'. The quote itself seems to derive from either a writer on the Rare Scribes website (who postulated that Diddy was DK's nephew), or DK's in-game data in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' (although it should be mentioned that this was added to the English localization and wasn't in the Japanese version, suggesting this was never Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s intention). Eventually it was mentioned that Diddy was adopted.
** [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Cranky_Kong#Identity_Confusion Cranky Kong has been inconsistently identified as the father or the grandfather of the modern, tie-wearing DK.]] There is a Donkey Kong Jr. who continues to appear in cameos, but presuming the grandfather/grandson relationship is correct, it means the middle generation just vanished in the ''Donkey Kong Country'' universe where there is no explicit "DK Jr."
* The ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' cartoon did this to both Sonic the Hedgehog, giving him Uncle Chuck, and to his nemesis Dr Robotnik, giving him a nephew, Snively. Neither Sonic nor Snively's actual parents are ever mentioned.

** Even Characters/DisneyVillains aren't immune to this trope. In the ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' TV series, Cruella had an EnfantTerrible niece named Ivy (and several other relatives who only showed up once). And in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool'', Yzma employed the help of her twin nephews, [[strike:[[TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Zack and Cody]]]] [[HeyItsThatVoice Zim and Zam]]. Also, in comics, [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Magica de Spell]] had a niece named Minima.

* ''[[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby-Doo]]'''s nephew Scrappy, whose attempts to inject cuteness and humor into the show [[TheScrappy backfired horribly and became a trope unto itself]].
** Then there's the lesser known Yabba Doo (Scooby's brother), and Scooby Doo's cousins Scooby Dum and Scooby Dee.
** Scrappy does have a mother, Ruby Doo (Scooby's sister). Ruby is seen twice in the various Scooby spinoffs---the first, in a flashback to the day Scrappy was born, and the second appearance as a puppy in "A Pup Named Scooby Doo." Her name's presumably a reference to Joe Ruby, one of the co-creators of Scooby Doo.
