* In ''{{Drowtales}}'', it's considered good luck to have twins or a similar - age sibling. As a result, the Sharen clan has the practice of a "protector twin" (adopting - or buying - a child, usually from a servant family) to give their own children a chance to have a same - age sibling. Unfortunately, this often results in sibling rivalry, ending with the death of the protector twin at the hands of the former child, or (less often) vice versa.
* In ''SomethingPositive,'' [[BrattyHalfPint Rory]] decides he wants a little sister; his mom doesn't seem interested, but when his ParentalSubstitute [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Davan]] gets engaged he immediately starts suggests he get his fiancée, [[TokenWholesome Vanessa]], pregnant. Vanessa, who doesn't want kids, agrees as long as Rory is present at all her births--[[ScareEmStraight then shows him a video]] of what [[{{Squick}} the birthing process looks like]].

* One adventure of Literature/TheBabySittersClub has Mary Anne and Dawn wanting their parents to have a baby so they'll be able to baby-sit it. They come to their senses by the end of the book.

* Littlefoot in at least one of the ''TheLandBeforeTime'' sequels has shown interest in wanting a sibling. It doesn't help that he's one of the only main characters in the entire series (except for Chomper) to be an only child. He DID get a stepbrother when his long-absent father Bron returned in the tenth film, and at Littlefoot's urging, adopted Shorty, a brachiosaurus who had come to view Bron as a father.

* The OhYeahCartoons short ''Zoey's Zoo'' involves a little girl who keeps tons of animals in her own personal "zoo," because her parents (or at least her mother, whom we only ever see) never caved in to her desire for a little brother. Doesn't stop her from asking about it incessantly, though.

*** And then ''another'' episode has Angelica freaking out over the possibility that her mother may be pregnant again and fearing that she may no longer be the center of her parents' lives. At the end, it turns out to be a false alarm, and Angelica continues to stay an only-child.

* Once on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Bart, upset about being the OutNumberedSibling, tries to trick his parents into having another baby. Eventually Marge confronts him about what's going on and, while she does feel sorry for Bart, explains that she and Homer are fine with just three kids, and adds that even if she and Homer ''did'' end up having another baby, it could end up being another girl instead of a boy (which leads to Bart having a fantasy about having three sisters). Bart winds up going to the orphanage and temporarily adopting a brother instead.
* ZigZagged in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Emission Impossible": first is inverted when Stewie hears that Peter and Lois want another kid, and he tries to sabotage any of their attempt at having sex.
