Added DiffLines:

*It's mostly said jokingly for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic,'' but when you have Applejack and Big Macintosh as the parental figures to their little sister, tongues will wag. Nobody, even fans of the 'ship, took it seriously until "Where the Apple Lies," which depicts the parents already gone - AJ and Mac are arguing over who will take over the farm from Granny Smith, meaning there's no one in the middle - but no evidence of Apple Bloom's existence yet. Cue a bit of ''OMG we were just kidding don't tell me she's really their kid!'' the day that episode aired.

* Twins Dennis and Dee Reynolds from ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia''. For starters, they had no problem playing love interests in Charlie's "Dayman" play. Charlie initially cast Dennis as the villain to avoid the incestuous implications, but Dennis wanted to play the hero instead and had no problem with the fact that his sister played the love interest. In addition, during the episode "Frank's Back in Business," the siblings along with Mac discover that a patron has left his wallet at the bar, leading Dennis to assume the patron's identity. When they show up to a baseball game via the tickets in the wallet and that person's associates assume that Dennis is the patron and Dee is his wife, the two have no problems playing along with this ruse. Dennis even states that he "gets off" while pretending to be another person, and when Dee questions the ruse, he asks Dee if she wants to "get off" with him. There's also the scattered moments in the series where Dennis [[AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther expresses his care for Dee's well-being]] in a way that almost sounds like a grand declaration of love, and while Dee herself seems to brush them off most of the time, it is implied she does return the sentiment.

** There's also Michael and Lincoln's relationship. While they're not to the same extent as Sam and Dean, they both go to insane lengths to help each other.



* Some may read the narrator of {{Billy Idol}}'s White Wedding as more than just a protective brother.

** Clarine and Klein, who are somewhat patterned after Raquesis and Eldigan from the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral]] games (sans tragedy). Clarine will tell every other man she supports with that they can't compare to her charming and handsome brother, throws a fit when another healer treats him, and compliments him directly for being the best-looking man in their RagtagBunchOfMisfits. (It is, at least, one-sided, as Klein gets rather frustrated with her antics.)
** Priscilla wavers between this and standard BigBrotherWorship with her older brother Raven. She also reminds him of a ChildhoodMarriagePromise from when they were very young, though it's part of her attempts to convince him to stop acting like she's a total stranger.

* Throughout ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' Marnie and Anna develop a close RomanticTwoGirlFriendship. They dance together, declare their love for each other, rowboat together, and overall act very romantic. They turn out to be related. [[spoiler:Marnie is Anna's ''grandmother'' as a CuteGhostGirl.]] It's clear that they [[RelationshipWritingFumble weren't meant]] to come off like they're in love but they do nevertheless. It doesn't help that at least Anna doesn't know, Anna still comes off as AmbiguouslyGay when she gets mad at Marnie's male love interest, and Anna has several direct parallels to Marnie's love interest.

* ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'':
** Aredhel is oddly fond of her cousin [[note]]technically, her half-cousin; their fathers, Fingolfin and Fëanor, are half-brothers[[/note]] Celegorm. [[WordOfGod Tolkien himself said]] they're JustFriends, but that doesn't stop the shippers.
** [[HoYay Fingon, Aredhel's brother, and Maedhros, Celegorm's brother]]. They're very close and Fingon even rescues Maedhros when he's captured by [[BigBad Morgoth]].
** Fëanor is... very ''interested'' in Galadriel, the daughter of his younger half-brother, Finarfin. Or maybe that should be he's interested in her hair; he asks her repeatedly for a strand of it.



* The relationship between Justin and Alex (Jalex) on ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' is filled with lots of subtext. By the time TheMovie aired, everyone including the writers knew about the pairing and ensuing fandom, so the subtext from TheMovie onwards is [[ShipTease ship teasing]] and put there by the writers. It got to the point where some ExecutiveMeddling occurred to reduce the amount of Jalex scenes and plots in a later season. It didn't help that the actors for Justin and Alex have been very very cuddly with each other at times, including New Years kisses. Then there's the episode where everyone's memories of Justin being related to Alex is erased, which among other things results in their ''mother'' saying they'd make a good couple.

* ''Film/TheCrimonPeak'' hints at this, with Lucille being incredibly jealous of Thomas's new wife. Edith eventually starts to suspect that they may actually be married and pretending to be siblings as part of a money-making scheme. [[spoiler: She's RightForTheWrongReasons - they are a couple but actually related as well]].
