In most games, if the BigBad has a sibling, he or she will be even stronger than the BigBad itself. Mostly these appear as {{Bonus Boss}}es, but in some cases they may serve as a plot twist. This is a natural consequence of the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil; if you find yourself fighting a bad guy's relative later on, that relative will necessarily be tougher in order to keep pace with your increased skills.

* A ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' NonSerialMovie is based on Freeza's stronger older brother Cooler showing up on Earth [[AvengingTheVillain to kill Goku for killing his brother.]] (Goku hadn't actually killed Freeza, but Cooler didn't know that.) Ironically, Frieza gets revived much later on and becomes the stronger sibling again, though Cooler still beats him in genre-savviness [[spoiler:and having a SuperMode that doesn't bleed stamina like a punctured water balloon.]]
* The Gorgon Sisters from ''Manga/SoulEater'' and ''Manga/SoulEaterNot''. Medusa, Arachne, and Shaula are [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy savvy]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], [[MadScientist experimenting]], [[AnimalMotifs animal themed]], [[HotWitch hot]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot witches]] who each held the title of the [[BigBad lead antagonist]] at different periods and otherwise act to [[XanatosSpeedChess one-up each other]], [[BatmanGambit the good guys]] and [[BigBadEnsemble even more villainous factions]].
