* One episode of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' has Mark almost take a girl out on a date just because his younger brother David wanted to. His JerkAss-ery is repaid when his ''wife'' almost finds out, and David, after helping him hide it from her, [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asks Mark]] if he ''really'' wants to go out of his way to alienate the only two people who really care about him.

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'' initially had a LoveTriangle between two siblings. In middle school Maho fell for a boy named Riku, so she asked her {{transsexual}} sister Nitori to dress up as a girl after Riku had fallen for her. Even after he finds out Nitori's sex he seems to be somewhat attracted to Nitori. It eventually faded though and he and Maho became a happy couple [[spoiler:who are still together even at the end, when Nitoro goes off to college]]. It's never quite said whether Nitori herself had feelings for Riku, but she later gets a girlfriend.

* ''Kyou Kara Yonshimai'' has Sakura's friend falling for her. He later meets her older sister and is attracted to her [[UnsettlingGenderReveal until]] learning that she is the "[[{{transsexual}} brother]]" he called gross and obnoxious for living as a woman. Kashiwa finds him annoying for [[BigBrotherInstinct harrassing her sister]] and is uninterested in him (plus she has a girlfriend anyway).

* Actually ''averted'' in LittleWomen. Laurie only fell for Jo's younger sister Amy ''after being rejected at least twice by Jo herself'', and later they both see they're much better in a LikeBrotherAndSister relationship. [[DieForOurShip The fandom still acts as if Amy was a slut who deliberately stole "Jo's True Love".]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'', Prince Gerald worked hard to keep his brother Alan from realizing that he was in love with Katarina in order to avoid this trope and more rivals, but Alan eventually catches on and begins pursuing Gerald's fiancee Katarina, who isn't really interested in either of them because she's too in love with cake to notice anything else.

* In the backstory of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', in accordance with Valyrian tradition, Aegon Targaryen (later known as [[FounderOfTheKingdom Aegon the Conqueror]]) was [[ArrangedMarriage required]] by his parents to marry his [[BrotherSisterIncest older sister]] Visenya, but he was in love with his younger sister Rhaenys. His solution was to [[MarryThemAll marry both of them]], which was unusual, but allowed. Understandably, Visenya was not happy about having to share a husband with her sister, especially since Aegon favoured Rhaenys and named their son Aenys as his heir instead of Visenya's son Maegor, who was much more martial and warrior-like. She's widely thought to have gotten got her revenge ([[RevengeByProxy sort-of]]) long after her siblings' deaths, when she poisoned her [[EvilStepmother stepson]]/[[EvilAunt nephew]] when he sought refuge with her and [[MotherMakesYouKing installed]] Maegor on the throne after Aenys's death. Eventually she lost out when Maegor died without issue and the throne passed to Rhaenys' son Jaehaerys, and all Targaryen kings since then were descended from Rhaenys.

** More recently in the backstory, there's a particularly tragic example between Lysa and Catelyn Tully, and Petyr Baelish. [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Lysa was in love with Petyr, Petyr was in love with Catelyn, Catelyn saw him as a little brother]]. [[spoiler:This leads to a continent-spanning civil war and thousands of deaths, including those of both Lysa and Catelyn.]]
