* ''Fanfic/MiTruLov'': In chapter 13, Moscow reveals that Russia, her brother, promised to marry her if she killed Kawaiilyn or Japan. It is (thankfully) subverted when Moscow [[spoiler:dies of shock.]]

** [[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]].

** [[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]]. Their tale actually draws some parallels to the tale of Beren and Lúthien, the most legendary love in-universe. And here Tolkien didn't specify anything.

* ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'': According to [=IMDb=]: On the special, ''Beverly Hills, 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion'' (2003) Creator/ShannenDoherty revealed that the hardest thing about doing the show was pretending that Jason Priestley, whom she referred to as "being so hot", was her brother. She then revealed that, years later, people often approach her and ask her about the "weird incestuous vibe" between Brandon and Brenda, their characters. She said her response is always "Uh-huh, you better believe it!".

* [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 He-Man]] and [[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]] are basically all over each other when they appear together. When riding on horseback He-Man hugs her very tightly from behind, looking a bit more comfortable than a normal sibling would. (But then again, He-Man rides a horse this way with everyone, including males.) The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8ZcmMK64Ok "I Have The Power"]] that was created for the "Secret Of The Sword" movie where Adam and Adora first met sounds so much like a love duet it's a little unsettling. It is catchy, though: ''Somewhere out there someone needs me. I don't know how or where, but believe me. I'll walk the universe to find her. For better or for worse beside her''.

* In ''Maya and Miguel'', a PBS Kids cartoon about two bilingual Latino twins and their diverse group of friends, the titular twins Maya and Miguel are often portrayed as very, very close. Of course, they can't be more then ten, but they hold hands and kiss one another on the cheek, which is as much as any of the married couples on the show do. One obvious episode is 'La Neuva Cocinita'. The intro is a voiceover with Maya talking about how she and her brother are like yin and yang and they perfectly balance one another. Later, in a flashback from Abuela Elena, she remembers when she and her husband ran a restaurant together and there is a black and white sequence of Elena and her husband running the restaurant. Later, when Maya and Miguel are running a restaurant in imitiation of their grandparents, the montage of the twins is completely identical to the flashback from Elena and her husband down to Maya kissing Miguel on the cheek.

* This is the impression many get upon playing through the story of ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur V]]''. Not only is Patroklos saddled with an OedipusComplex for his [[spoiler:deceased]] mother Sophitia (to the point that [[spoiler:Elysium, the spirit of Soul Calibur, can manipulate him purely by [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith assuming his mother's form and beckoning to him]]]]), but his interactions with Pyrrha tend to carry an incestuous undercurrent as well. Patroklos grew up raised by his father Rothion, who told him stories about his mother, spurring Patroklos [[SoProudOfYou to follow in her path as a holy warrior]], whereas [[DarkMagicalGirl Pyrrha]] was stolen away from her family at a young age (and thus has no memory of them), but their affection, which ''should'' be a strong case of [[TheFourLoves storge]], goes on a crash collision with RelationshipWritingFumble and veers right into eros territory. And then there's official art such as [[http://soulcalibur.wikia.com/wiki/Patroklos?file=Soul_Calibur_New_Legends_Of_Project_Soul_019.JPG this]]....

** Clarine and Klein from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'', who are somewhat patterned after Raquesis and Eldigan from the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' (sans tragedy and confirmation of romantic feelings). 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.)

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. The fact that she and Clarine are both of the Troubadour class is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has the twin siblings Eirika and Ephraim, whose in-game supports all but outright spell it out. Their end-game weapons are even named after a pair of incestuous twins from a Wagner opera. If you finish the game with the A support, the ending changes and it's implied they ruled the kingdom together (As king and queen).
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has several examples:
** The Avatar can marry any of his or her siblings [[spoiler:and while they're NotBloodRelated, they either grew up as siblings (Nohr) or thought they were (Hoshido).]]
** Camilla is rather attached to her adoptive brother/sister, the aforementioned Avatar, and as said above is one of the Male Avatar's prospective love interests.
** Camilla's half-brother Leo, whom she's implied to [[PromotiontoParent have helped raise]], [[WellDoneSonGuy desperately desires Camilla's affections]] [[spoiler:and is revealed [[AllThereInTheManual through a guide]] [[FirstLove to have once been in love with her]]]]. He can also be a prospective love interest for a Female Avatar, who is his adoptive sister too.
** And finally, [[spoiler:the Male Avatar and Azura]] get enough ShipTease to qualify as each other's ImpliedLoveInterest, despite being maternal cousins. In their defense they didn't actually know they were related...but they also don't particularly seem to ''care'' when they find out.
