* This is presumably what was intended with Two-Tone and Lucky in ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansTheSeries''. They're love interests despite being siblings. In the [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians original film]] they're related ''by blood''. It's most likely the creators of the cartoon mistook Two-Tone for one of the adopted puppies.

* Kai and Saya from ''Anime/BloodPlus'', where it is pretty obvious from early on in the series that Kai would [[MemeticMutation hit that like the fist of an angry god]]. Nobody seems to find this at all strange.
** Well, when one considers that she was only "adopted" a couple years ago (ie after Kai had hit puberty) and looked like a teen girl already, it's not so strange.

The two are biologically sisters however they want to be open of their relationship and marry each other. Anna has a resemblance to her father but looks different enough from the rest of the family for it to work.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'':
** There are constant debates on how, if Scar and Mufasa are the lions of the pride, Nala is ''whose'' daughter exactly? Making her what relation to Simba? According to ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' Nala's father is an unknown male, though the series is in an AlternateUniverse from the film.
** There's also debate on whether Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed are related, partly for the purpose of writing fanfiction with the Shenzi/Banzai pairing and partly because it's one of those things that's fun to argue about.
** In ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', isn't it so convenient that Kovu isn't really Scar's son, making it perfectly okay for him to get it on with his cousin? This was a last minute change as Kovu was originally Scar's biological son with a StrongFamilyResemblance before the writers realized the [[KissingCousins incest]].

* At present, Japanese law allows for adopted siblings to marry, which has [[JidaiGeki feudal-era]] origins. Japanese family inheritance traditionally emphasize the transmission of family ''traditions'' rather than ''blood'', so at the time titles can only be transmitted to the title-holder biological or adopted ''son''; even nephews need to be adopted as an heir. This caused adoptions in feudal Japan to be as political as ArrangedMarriage, and many just do both--adopting a child from another family as one's heir and have the latter marry his own daughter.

He was born the seventh son of Matsudaira Yoshitatsu, the tenth Daimyo of Takasu, whose biological brother (i.e. Katamori's uncle) Takakata was already adopted out and became the eighth Daimyo of Aizu. When Aizu, again, was facing the problem of a lack of male biological issue, Katataka adopted Katamori, his biological nephew, as his son and by extension, the future ninth Daimyo of Aizu. To cement the relationship between the two houses, Katataka [[ArrangedMarriage arranged]] Katamori to marry his biological daughter, i.e. Katamori's ''first cousin by blood and sister by adoption''.

* Even though VCAndrews' works are best known for BrotherSisterIncest, it's actually more common for the heroine to end up with a man she initially believes is her brother/half-brother/cousin until it's revealed that they are not actually blood-related, making it fine for them to marry each other. The best example of this is the Cutler series where Dawn learns that she's actually adopted and that Jimmy is hence not really her brother; Jimmy even expresses his relief about this as he was attracted to Dawn even when he thought they were related. (And just to top this all off, Dawn's original boyfriend Philip turns out to be her ''actual'' brother who remains obsessed with her after the truth of their relations comes out to [[LoveMakesYouEvil absolutely creepy levels]]. Got to love VC Andrews' wacky plots). Other examples are Heaven's daughter Annie and apparent half-brother Luke from the Casteel series, Melody and apparent cousin Cory from the Logan series (okay, it turns out they're [[KissingCousins still blood-related]] but only as second cousins, which makes marriage between them legal), and Rain and apparent brother Roy from the Hudson series (although they don't end up together, and there's that thing about Rain's own blood brother being attracted to her too--she doesn't end up with him either, thank goodness).

* A few WesternAnimation/YinYangYo ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'' fans use this to justify the {{Twincest}}.



* As the quote above demonstrates, ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'''s [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] justifies having a crush on her brother Francis (that universe's version of Shining Armor) by pointing out that Francis was a DoorstopBaby left at Twilight's house. Even after her explanation, the other ponies still find the attraction creepy. [[spoiler:Twilight [[MurderTheHypotenuse wins in the end]], and eventually marries Francis.]]



* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' has constant debates on how, if Scar and Mufasa are the lions of the pride, Nala is ''whose'' daughter exactly? Making her what relation to Simba? According to ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' Nala's father is an unknown male, though the series is in an AlternateUniverse from the film. There's also debate on whether Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed are related, partly for the purpose of writing fanfiction with the Shenzi/Banzai pairing and partly because it's one of those things that's fun to argue about.
* In ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', isn't it so convenient that Kovu isn't really Scar's son, making it perfectly okay for him to get it on with his cousin? This was a last minute change as Kovu was originally Scar's biological son with a StrongFamilyResemblance before the writers realized the [[KissingCousins incest]].

* The ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' films changed the Chipettes so that they end up adopted by Dave instead of Miss Miller. This means that they're legally the adopted siblings of the Chipmunks while still being they're love interests.



* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series tends to prefer the [[BrotherSisterIncest full-blooded version of this trope]], but apparently decided to go the NotBloodSiblings route in ''Radiant Dawn''... ''twice''. [[spoiler:Once with Micaiah and Sothe, and also with Elincia and Geoffrey.]] In both cases, they end up married at the end if they have an A-support with each other.
** Micaiah and Sothe is a combination of this and reversed WifeHusbandry. Due to her long life span she raised Sothe from when he was a kid, though it could be argue that she viewed him as a little brother since physically she is only in her mid to late teens. Interestingly, they are the only characters who start out with A support for each other.
