** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky Trails in The Sky]]: Joshua was brought in by [[OneManArmy Cassius]] [[MemeticBadass Bright]] at the beginning of the game (around 5 years prior to the game's timeline) so that Cassius can raise him as his adoptive son and his daughter Estelle's adoptive sister. Joshua's feelings toward Estelle are subtly hinted throughout the first game and Estelle slowly realizes her own feelings too, except for a certain problem: [[spoiler:Joshua is an assassin from [[AncientConspiracy Ouroboros]] sent to assassinate Estelle's father and then to unknwowingly spy on Bright Family after the expected failure. The sheer guilt he has makes Joshua leave his families and friends including Estelle right after she confesses]]. Thankfully, they get better.
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel Trails of Cold Steel]]: Elise Schwarzer is in love with her adoptive brother Rean Schwarzer, the main character of this game. The feeling is one-sided since Rean is [[ObliviousToLove oblivious to her sister's feelings]]. Unlike Estelle and Joshua, she doesn't bring it further and this trope becomes one of many source of comedic moments especially from [[ThePrankster her best friend]].

* It's eventually revealed in ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}'' that [[spoiler:Satoko]] and her AbusiveParent [[spoiler:Marube]] are most likely not blood related. [[spoiler:Marube]] had been [[VillainousIncest molesting her]] and when [[spoiler:Satoko]] learned the truth of their bond she became furious and [[TheRunaway ran away]]. Marube apparently has no qualms with blood incest either as he later [[spoiler:tries to have sex with his biological son, Tetsuo]].

* Derek and Casey of ''LifeWithDerek'' is a non-canon ship that's largely popular with the fanbase, as opposed to all the other love interests that are introduced throughout the series. The fact that half of the show focuses on the interactions and the relationship between the two stepsiblings doesn't help.

Added DiffLines:

* Quite a bit of ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' fans who like "Tcest" write the brothers as adopted siblings. It's vague in the various continuities if they're blood related or not.
* In the ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic, ''[[Fanfic/BecomingFree Becoming Family]]'', Elsa's adopted daughter and Anna's biological son fall in love. The [[KissingCousins cousin incest]] element never gets referenced.

* Never stated outright in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', but the amount of ShipTease between characters that aren't technically related by blood is astounding, as adoptive older brother figures tend to later become possible {{Love Interest}}s (in fans' eyes, at least). Possible couples include: Switzerland and Liechtenstein, China and any of the Asians, any arrangement of England/France and America/Canada, possibly Spain and Romano... And because this universe is rather unclear about how exactly countries are "born," fans can and do decide whether or not certain couples are incest based on their preferences.

* The Alex and Luna, the hero and heroine of ''LunarTheSilverStar'', grew up together after Luna was taken in by Alex's parents as an infant. The game makes it obvious that they are destined to be together, and no one in the entire game, even Alex's parents, is anything other than happy for them.

** There are constant debates on who, if Scar and Mufasa are the lions of the pPride, Nala's father might be, and thus to what extent she is related to Simba. A full-on sibling seems unlikely, but she could easily be the daughter of Mufasa and another lioness; barring this, she may be the daughter of Scar, which is uncomfortable for ''several other reasons'': in some drafts (and in the Broadway musical), Scar actually tries to make Nala his consort, which is the real reason she exiled herself from the Pride. You see [[PervertDad what the problem with that is]]. Moreover, in the sequel, Nala and Simba's daughter Kiara hooks up with Scar's adopted son (well… supposedly, see the third bullet-point here), which is just as weird.[[note]]According to ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', Nala's father is an unknown male [[DisappearedDad who died or disappeared in unknown circumstances prior to the events of the films]]. Some fans have been reluctant to accept this explanation (as well as other [[RetCon retcons]] done by the series) and declare it FanonDiscontinuity altogether.]]

Quite often it's just a case of cultural misunderstanding. In Japanese the words for "big brother" (兄さん - ''nii-san'') and "big sister" (姉さん - ''nee-san'') are very commonly used in casual speech to address young people in general, too, and it's not rare that little kids and teenagers will use them to address to older but still young friends (or love interests). However, sometimes clarification is needed if the context is not clear enough about it.

* Dib and Gaz from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' are brother and sister, but WordOfGod hints that Dib may have been an experiment created by their scientist father (and, many fans guess, Gaz too). Some have argued this makes them a viable shipping pair. It's not a very popular ship, though.
