* Averted in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Given how strong of a theme family is throughout the franchise, most characters have at least one sibling (adopted or otherwise). The ones who don't are justified by either being orphans or ArtificalHumans (though there are a few exceptions).

* Among the major characters in ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'', only Kaguya is known to be an only child (Shirogane and Fujiwara both have younger sisters and Ishigami's family life is never mentioned). It plays into her LonelyRichKid status.

Some stories use HaremGenre situations to replace the character's lack of a family. [[BigBrotherAttraction Fans may convert a sibling complex onto characters]], since siblings are so damn rare. Either for that reason or to explain away attachments for {{Shipping}}'s sake; the unwanted girl doesn't ''always'' have to [[DieForOurShip die for the ship]].

* The plot of Another Fairly Oddbaby is Poof feeling rather lonely as an OnlyChild, so he wishes to have a baby brother. Fortunately, Cosmo is willing to give birth to another child, who his parents name Puff. Unfortunately for Poof, [[SamusIsAGirl not only does the baby turn out to be a girl]], [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling but she also turns out to be more mature than he is, meaning that they don't share the same interests. Fortunately, much like their parents, they ultimately learn to love each other despite their differences.

* Of the main three characters of ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'', the title character has a younger sister (Michelle, who was just an egg when the show started), and Foo and Fee are brother and sister (and half-adopted into Harvey's family). The only siblings of the supporting cast are Claire's [[TheGhost unseen]] BigSisterBully, Rooter's younger brother, and Dade's [[MassiveNumberedSiblings many younger siblings]]. This leads to Fee looking for advice on being an "honorary sister" to Michelle, but finding [[TheBlindLeadingTheBlind no one with experience to speak of]].
* Many of the characters in [[WesternAnimation/''Fairly Oddparents'']] are an only child. This is invoked by Cosmo and Wanda when they give birth to Poof, since one of the reasons that they chose Timmy to be their godchild was because they desired to have a child of their own. A few exceptions are the previously mentioned Wanda, who has a twin sister named Blonda, as well as Vicky and Tootie, who are both sisters.

** Not long after in the fanfic, Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda give birth to Puff's anti-fairy counterpart, Huff. However, unlike Poof, Foop is horrified to learn that he has a younger sibling, as he actually enjoyed being an only child since he got all his parents' love and attention. Since they're both the opposites of Cosmo and Wanda's children, their relationship as the FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling is reversed, similar to Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda's relationship compared to their fairy counterparts.
