** The Baratheon children Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen learn that [[spoiler: their uncle Jaime Lannister is their biological father...[[BrotherSisterIncest but still also their uncle]]]]. They reject this notion, as their mother vehemently denies it as a scandalous rumor meant to cheat them out of their inheritance.

* In the ''Literature/100Cupboards'' trilogy, protagonist Henry is sent to live with his aunt (his mother's sister) uncle, and cousins while [[ParentalNeglect his parents are traveling]].

* In the second half of ''Manga/Bokurano'' it turns out that the parents of [[spoiler: Jun are actually his aunt and uncle, and accordingly, his younger sister Kana is actually his cousin. This was necessary because his real father died during gang warfare and the mother entrusted her child to her relatives, since she was also in danger. And although she approaches with her son and becomes a volunteer to save him, unfortunately she dies before he knows the truth.]]

* In ''Film/TromeoAndJuliet'', the title characters find out they are, in fact, brother and sister. [[IncestIsRelative They decide to continue their romantic relationship anyway.]] It is a ''Troma'' movie, after all.

* This trope is very popular in Japanese fiction, since it helps create a "painless" end in BrotherSisterIncest or even ParentalIncest works. For example, in this way LittleSisterHeroine is made at least partially high-grade by LoveInterest in ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' and ''VisualNovel/KanaLittleSister''. However, ''Manga/KoiKaze'' deliberately averted this as an overly used cliche. Also, expect frequent use with DeliberateValuesDissonance in works that criticize abusive attitudes towards women because of patriarchal foundations in modern Japan.



* Played for drama and in general Zig Zagged in ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool''. In the 16th volume, [[spoiler: Maya, the aunt of the protagonists Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, states that Tatsuya is actually her son, which turns the brother and sister into first cousins ​​and makes it possible for them to get married. However, further in the volume it turns out that this is a lie invented for the purposes of RoyalInbreeding, which becomes possible due to the fact that Miyuki was created artificially as DesignerBaby from the DNA of Tatsuya's parents, which technically makes them "unusual" siblings and will ensure the birth of healthy children in spite of the BrotherSisterIncest. It is implied that as a result of this, [[AuthorsSavingThrow they are genetically closer to half-siblings]]. However, Maya's claim would be difficult to disprove, since she is the twin sister of their mother and so would have identical DNA.]]

* ''Manga/KoiKaze'' deliberately teases the reader with this, and then specifically averted to show that this is an artificial happy ending and trying to deconstruct the genre, rejecting tropes like this.

However, Maya's claim half-siblings anyway]], as Maya went to lie clearly not afraid that the DNA test would show something unusual, and real Tatsuya's mother will be very difficult to disprove, identify, since she is Maya was the twin sister of their mother and so would have identical has a similar DNA.]]
* ''Manga/BunnyDrop'' also plays with this. First we are told that Rin is a very young aunt of the protagonist, who was born from his grandfather's connection with a young girl who worked in his house. However, [[spoiler: at the end of the series it turns out that his grandfather just announced Rin as his daughter to hide the fact, that she was the result of an unwanted pregnancy and she prevented her mother from building a career.

* This was one of the origin stories[[note]]Post-Crisis, pre-''ComicBook/SupermanBirthright''[[/note]] in the Superman legacy, that the Kent farm was cutoff from the rest of Smallville by a long snowstorm and it was during this time that Martha was to have given birth to Clark. The same story also states that Martha had suffered several miscarriages beforehand so the neighbors wouldn't have been suspicious if they hadn't publicly talked about the alleged pregnancy.
