* ''Manga/VampireKnight'': when Kaname turns Yuuki into a vampire, restoring her memory, she reveals to the audience that Kaname is her brother. Ah, so the LoveTriangle will be easily solved, won't it? ''Wrong''. Kaname confirms she's his sister, and states she was ''born to become his wife''. Then he asks the other why they look surprised -- [[DeliberateValuesDissonance this is very common among pureblood vampires]], and in fact their own parents (Juri and Haruka) were siblings and HappilyMarried. [[spoiler:Later it turns out that Kaname wasn't her brother, but a distant ancestor who had been asleep for hundreds, if not thousands, of years and her real brother was given to him as a blood sacrifice so that he could be revived. It's still incest so it's [[DoubleSubversion double subverted]].]] The situation is exactly as complicated as it sounds.
