* In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', we see the protagonist, Apollo Justice. His attractive assistant is Trucy Wright, Phoenix Wright's daughter. They got a bunch of ShipTease in-game, until it was revealed that Trucy was adopted, and she's Apollo's half-sister through their mother Thalassa. Oddly, it still hasn't stopped the fan pairing from still occurring. This is probably because while the ''players'' learn that Trucy and Apollo are related, [[DramaticIrony they themselves never do.]]

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_sexual_attraction Genetic Sexual Attraction]] is probably the biggest cause behind this happening with some regularity in real life.



* Are you an Icelander worried you might be smooching your cousin? [[http://www.reviewjournal.com/buzzworthy/new-app-helps-icelanders-avoid-accidental-incest There's an app for that!]] It's an understandable concern when your entire country's population is smaller than the capital of Iowa's.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', Roberta wears a fat suit using a fake name to see if she can get by without her looks, and sure enough the only person who treats her kindly is her stepbrother, Junior. Unfortunately, he soon develops a crush on her, and she has to pretend to move away to avoid breaking his heart or revealing the truth.
* Happens on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in a Halloween episode. Meg and her friends actually get invited to a costume party, and she goes dressed as a Slutty Cat, complete with mask covering 75% of her face. One game of spin the bottle/seven minutes of heaven later, she's escorted to the closet with someone in an all-concealing [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]] costume. When they're in there too long, the door is opened to reveal it being Chris... While they're half-naked on the ground making out. [[{{Squick}} They didn't take it well]], and lines like "We did so much!" imply there was more than just lips involved, though they seemed to have gotten over it by the end of the episode, apparently realizing that (given who they are) they were lucky to hook up with anyone at all that night.
** In "Valentine's Day in Quahog", Stewie decides to go back in time to the 60s to see what love was like. During the trip, he falls for a girl and kisses her, only to find out it is really Lois after she is picked up by Carl Pewterschmidt. Stewie ends up vomiting all the way back to the present.
* "Roswell that Ends Well" in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. While stuck in 1947, Fry accidentally gets his grandfather killed and figures that since he still exists, the attractive woman he thought was his grandmother couldn't possibly be. After he does "the nasty in the past-y", Professor Farnsworth explains to Fry that not only is she his grandmother after all, Fry's grandfather is [[spoiler: [[StableTimeLoop Fry himself]]]].

Hayley is naturally {{Squick}}ed and tries to put a stop to it; at the end of the episode Roger drops the bomb, which horrifies poor Steve (rather than blaming him, Hayley is sympathetic and just gets angrier at Roger for manipulating him).

* Depending on your interpretation of their relationship before the big reveal, Kira and Cagalli of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''. They never really got around to doing anything, but they definitely looked like the usual romantic pairing all the way up to the last five episodes of the series. Especially since the first half of ''Gundam SEED'' was heavily based on the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', with Kira and Cagalli having roles roughly analogous to Amuro and Sayla. WordOfGod is that this was a deliberate reference to Luke and Leia.

* In the first ''Manga/TheLegendOfZelda'' manga, an adaptation of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'', Link has a crush on Princess Zelda. Unknown to him, he is her older half-brother from before their deceased mother was married. The manga never shows him learning that they're related, though Zelda knows that Link's her brother.

* The 1920 silent film ''Film/WithinOurGates'' has a flashback to the protagonist almost being raped by a white man. He then notices that she has the same distinctive birthmark on her chest that his daughter with his ex-wife did. Sylvia herself has quite a complex about the fact she's half-white.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has a somewhat squick-worthy one-sided example of this. In Episode 2 of Season 2, Theon Greyjoy returns to his homeland where he meets a young woman and they begin flirting. During a subsequent horseback ride, Theon begins feeling up the woman in a sexual manner (this is the series that led to the phrase "sexposition" being coined) and she not only doesn't object, she seems to take pleasure from it. A few minutes later, Theon (and the audience) get squicked when he learns that woman he was making out with was his ''sister'', Yara, whom he hasn't seen since she was a child, and that she was aware the entire time and played along mostly to see how he'd react in a SecretTestOfCharacter. Needless to say, he failed miserably.
