* The English dub of ''Anime/SailorMoon''. Serena and Mina mistake [[ButchLesbian Amara]] for a man and assume 'he' is dating [[LipstickLesbian Michelle]] when they are actually cousins. Of course in the original Japanese they ''were'' a couple and the dub didn't edit out that many [[IncestSubtext couple-y scenes between them]].

* In "VisualNovel/MyCandyLove", upon the player character's first meeting with Amber, she is told to "stay away from Nathaniel." She then goes to talk to Nathaniel and has the option of warning him about a girl named Amber who likes him. Since Amber is his twin sister, he's a little ticked off (although to be fair, the player had no way of knowing that.)

** There is a variation in the episode "Bart vs. Lisa vs. The Third Grade", some guys make fun of Bart by saying Lisa is his girlfriend. To be fair, the guys probably thought Bart and Lisa were only friends instead of siblings.

* Ex-England football team coach Sven Goran Eriksson was snapped with a young blonde. The Daily Star "[[BritishNewspapers newspaper]]" ran a front page story, basically emphasising the fact that she was young, blonde and worth a few "Phwoar!"s. Just like the above example, this young and attractive blonde woman was eventually revealed to be his daughter and not his girlfriend.
* The "Kiss Cam" at any sporting event makes this mistake every once in a while. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyfYodavAj8 Including one relatively well-known picture]] where a man actually holds up a sign with an arrow pointing to the woman he was sitting with and the text actually saying "My Sister" when the kiss cam focused on them. Although everyone, including his sister, thought it was pretty funny.

* In ''Series/BlackBooks'', Fran gets annoyed when she sees her boyfriend having coffee with another girl, that turns out to be his sister. Partially [[LampshadeHanging lampshade hung]] when Bernard guesses, correctly, that that was the case before Fran actually reveals that to him. They still break up anyway, but only because of how Fran jumped to conclusions and behaved childishly. Her boyfriend stated he wanted to date someone less "mad".

** A brief bit in "The One Where They're Up All Night" where Rachel sees a picture of a girl on her assistant/boyfriend Tag's desk and says "Who's this chippy? Seems a little young for you, but whatever." She's his sister. (Rachel then compliments her braces, making you wonder [[UnfortunateImplications just what she considers "a little young" to be]]...)
