* Lady Katsura and Lady Hatsuhana in ''Tamamo-no-Mae Asahi no Tamoto''. Even though Katsura is adopted, they seem to be on perfectly good terms, as Hatsuhana is willing to be sacrificed [[TakeMeInstead instead of]] her sister. [[spoiler: Too bad Katsura is killed off anyway.]]

** Fans frequently debate whether a relationship between the PC and [[spoiler:Imoen, both Children of the dead god Bhaal]], would "count" as incest. Those who favor the relationship usually point out that the PC is often a different race from her, and that canonically they are known to not have the same mother, so that their main connection is definitely not any mortal source. (This is even brought up in the expansion ''Throne of Bhaal'' in a discussion between her and one of the other party members; Viconia suggests she should serve the main character in every way he desires for all that he's done for her, and why it shouldn't be a problem. [[spoiler:Imoen]] balks at the thought and finds the idea disgusting... and then turns the question back on Viconia, who's also been canonically saved twice by the protagonist and ''is'' a romance option). Ultimately irrelevant, as she isn't a romantic option in the game... unless you mod it. And the only mod currently available and semi-complete is not very good.
** The same argument is made for the female PC and Sarevok, who are also Children of Bhaal from different mothers. It's a little easier to defend, since [[spoiler:''Throne of Bhaal'' makes it clear that Sarevok no longer has the Essence of Bhaal, and that was how he was related to her]]. Once again, it's irrelevant since he's not a vanilla romance option. Though his mod romance ''is'' better than [[spoiler:Imoen's]], at least.

For when "siblings" are by choice, instead of blood, that's FamilyOfChoice. Also, do not forget that the ever-growing number of imouto-titles has practically translated this trope into the category LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt and TheUntwist, so even its well-founded use can very quickly get into ClicheStorm.

* LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool: It's play quite difficultwith this when it turns out that Miyuki is an [[spoiler: [[DesignerBaby improved magician]], that is, she was artificially created, and then genetically modified to have powerful magic powers so that she could stop her brother from destroying the world, if needed. In this way, although she and Tatsuya are certainly biological siblings and have the same parents, their genes are enough different so that their potential BrotherSisterIncest connection is safe for their offspring. Later they are engaged under the guise of cousins, although their feelings are not mutual]].

Therefore, in such cases the story usually omitted the siblings relationship and the characters almost never treat each other as LikeBrotherAndSister, so as not to cause unpleasant associations in more conservative times. Not to mention the fact that thanks to the ValuesDissonance in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, even the relationship between non-native siblings or foster parents was considered a real incest for religious and moral reasons. In that case, this trope will be an anachronism in the story, which will be located in similar settings.

** Another Elizabeth Peters' example comes from her AmeliaPeabody series: Amelia's son Walter "Ramses" Emerson is attracted to his adopted sister Nefret pretty much from the moment he meets her, but it takes Nefret a long time to see Ramses as anything other than an AnnoyingYoungerSibling.

* In ''FanFic/LegolasByLaura'', the eponymous elf adopts the heroine [[MarySue Laura]] as either his sister or his daughter (it's not really made clear). After rescuing her from orcs, he agrees to "be your boyfriend," even though she's both his adopted sister and [[{{Lolicon}} ten years old]].

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''Series/{{Community}}'' fanfic "If It's Real (It Stains Your Hands Like Wine)." During [[Recap/CommunityS6E08IntroToRecycledCinema Abed's crappy movie]], Jeff and Annie almost kiss until Britta reminds them that their characters are supposed to be father and daughter. Abed declares that the movie does need a kiss, however, so they'll just say that Annie is someone else's daughter who was kidnapped as a baby and raised by Jeff. Britta points out that this is ''worse'', but everyone else thinks it's fine. Abed eventually decides they don't have time to film the kiss after all, and it's implied the only reason he suggested it in the first place was to [[ShipperOnDeck push Jeff closer to Annie]].
