People who become step-siblings at a very young age and grow up together are more likely to consider each other truly siblings and thus off limits for dating. This may also cross the line in the supposed WestermarckEffect. A theory that the instinctive biological aversion to mating with a sibling or childhood friend is highly dependent on actually being raised in close proximity to said sibling/childhood friend, this can be TruthInTelevision for many stepsiblings whose parents married during or after their puberty, though they rarely end up becoming an official couple due to social factors. However much actual people find this trope, well let's just say IncestIsRelative.

* Subverted in the manga version of ''Manga/BunnyDrop''. Pne of the reasons why Yukari and Daikichi decided against becoming an OfficialCouple was to avoid this trope. Daikichi's adopted daughter Rin and Yukari's son Kouki have romantic feelings for each other as teenagers. [[spoiler:Ultimately Rin and Kouki break up and Rin ends up with ''[[WifeHusbandry Daikichi]]''.]] The anime adaptation and film adaptation ignore the timeskip so they have [[MaybeEverAfter more implications]] that Daikichi and Yukari ended up together.

* Mickey and Audrey on ''WebVideo/{{HomeSchooled}}''. The two usually spend their time bickering, so this could be BelligerentSexualTension / SlapSlapKiss.

* ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' features a (mostly) one-sided flirtation between Twilight Sparkle and Shining "Francis" Armor. In [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic canon]], they're biological siblings, but in this universe, [[RunningGag "They're not biologically related, so technically it's okay."]]

* The amount of HoYay moments between Gumball and Darwin in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is...well, amazing. Especially in "The Bros", when Darwin gets jealous of Gumball's actual girlfriend. [[TropesAreFlexible They're actual adopted siblings rather than stepsiblings]] ([[UpliftedAnimal Darwin used to be the family's pet]]), though this arguably makes it ''worse'' because they've lived together since Darwin was two and Gumball was four.

** Also, Azura can marry her Nohrian step brothers, Xander and Leo. [[DownplayedTrope Arguably]], Ryoma and Takumi could count, too, since she was never officially adopted but lived with them for as long as the Avatar was in Nohr.
