* Averted with Telephus. He was given a beautiful woman named Auge by a king as a reward for winning a war. Suddenly, just as he gets ready, a BoltOfDivineRetribution flashes between them. Surprised, they start talking... turns out Auge is his mom, while his father is Heracles, who was apparently the one to send the lightning. Mind you, in some version the trope averted wasn't SurpriseIncest but OffingTheOffspring - Auge still loved Heracles, so she brought a ChastityDagger along.

* Due to {{UsefulNotes/Iceland}} having a rather small population with no last names, tbere is apparently a smartphone app meant solely to avert this trope.

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKingsII'' it's possible for a cheating wife to pass her paramour's child off as her husband's, which the game keeps track of in an invisible character stat. It is therefore possible to betroth someone to their secret half-brother.

* This was in an episode of ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' a man had 'spread his seed far and wide'--you could hardly turn a corner without finding one of his bastards. One couple didn't meet until they were both in graduate school in Canada and got married, only later realizing they were half-siblings; she was squicked, he didn't mind. It's also been used in several other episodes.

** In one, a woman learns the younger employee she's been sleeping with is actually her nephew and is violently sick. Said young man doesn't react as much, because he's still under the shock of learning that he's the product of BrotherSisterIncest.

* Happened to no less than [[http://www.spoliamag.com/the-time-casanova-almost-accidentally-married-his-daughter/ Giacomo Casanova]]. According to his autobiography, he was on the verge of marrying a beautiful seventeen-year-old girl when recognized the girl's mother as a former lover... from seventeen years earlier. (In real life he broke off the engagement immediately; in his liberally fictionalized autobiography, however, he cheerfully admits to an incestuous threesome, and even [[ParentalIncest impregnated]] the daughter with their [[RefugeInAudacity ''grandson'']] years later when they meet again.)
