* ''Fanfic/MGLNCrisis'': After taking a DNA test and doing some investigating, Fate finds out that her biological father was [[spoiler: an aged up clone of]] Clyde Harlaown, meaning that Lindy is her step-mother and Chrono is her half-brother. Of course, Lindy had already been her adoptive mother for over a decade at this point, so it didn't change anything between them.

** While we're on this subject, it is also somewhat popular to have Trixie revealed to be Twilight's lost sister, do partially to Trixie's cutie mark looking similar Twilight's father's from a distance.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' - Drew yoinks off the helmet from [=VanRook=]'s apprentice, gets a look at his face, and has a {{flashback}} which makes her realize he's her brother, which leads to his HeelFaceTurn.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** Homer's brother Herb and a long-lost half-sister in England.
** Herb was raised in an orphanage run by Dr. Hibbert's long-lost brother. In "Round Springfield" it was then revealed that Bleeding Gums Murphy was the long-lost third Hibbert brother.
** "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase": [[JumpingTheShark "And did someone say, 'long-lost triplets?'"]]
* Hank of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' was revealed to have a Japanese half-brother.



* Motor Ed turns out to be Dr. Drakken's cousin in the first episode of season 3 of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. Not so much a long lost sibling as a wish he were still lost cousin, but it still counts, especially after Drakken starts taking Motor Ed's fashion advice.
* 4Kids editing of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' provides an example of this trope being [[ExecutiveMeddling undermined by editing]]: The Trix exposit about the Dragonfire to Bloom. [[spoiler: Of their ancestors' attempt to take it, they say, "Your sister ruined everything by saving your life." This prompts Bloom to say, "Daphne?" But in the dub, the Trix never mention this, instead referring to Daphne as "the guardian of the flame", with Bloom saying "Daphne?" being cut out. It's rather awkward, since the first time it's indicated that they're sibs in the dub is when she's looking at her family tree in S2.]]
* In a post-Poof episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', it turns out that [[TheDitz Cosmo]] and [[TheAhnold Jorgen von Strangle]] are cousins, and that fact was kept a secret for obvious reasons.

* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Lois has a long lost brother Patrick who was put in a mental hospital.



* The ChristmasEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' features the [[spoiler:reunion of Mr. Hyunh and his long-lost daughter]].

Hordak attempted to kidnap them both due to a prophecy but was only able to get Adora. This backfires when Adora, learns her true heritage, does a HeelFaceTurn and becomes WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower.
* Hank Venture from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' finds out that his best friend Dermott Fictel is the illegitimate son of his father Rusty Venture and Nikki Fictel. Nikki Fictel was a teenager when Dermott was born and Dermott was raised to believe Nikki was his sister and his grandmother was his mother. Hank finds this out shortly AFTER losing his virginity to Nikki but has his memory wiped.
* Eric Cartman from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' finds out his old ginger nemesis Scott Tenorman is his half-brother in the episode "201". Eric had previously orchestrated the murder of Scott's parents (and thus Eric's own father) and tricked Scott into eating their remains at the Chili Con Carnival. When Eric finds out he becomes depressed...[[RedheadedStepChild at the thought of being half-ginger, though he does cheer up when he realizes he's also half-Denver Bronco.]]



* ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 TNMT (2012)]]'': It turns out Miwa, Splinter's long lost daughter whom he believed was murdered by The Shredder when the latter murdered Splinter's wife, is not only still alive, but [[spoiler: is actually Karai]].

Fair warning. Since this trope involves finding out about long lost relatives -- it's rife with spoilers!
