* Ellen Dunkel from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is either an OppositeSexClone of Elliot or a magical curse given human form, depending on how you think about it. This leads to [[http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/4568/youmightbearedneck.png confusion]] as to who can be considered her parents.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': It's not touched on much, but the Lannister family's inbreeding produced such a situation. Joffrey, Tommen, and Myrcella are Cersei's and Jaime's sons/daughter and nephews/niece, Tyrion's double nephews/niece, Tywin's double grandsons/granddaughter, and each others' brother/sister and cousin... and it only gets more complicated when marriages are arranged with the Tyrells. Lady Olenna Tyrell gives a speech about the complications of these arranged marriages. Her granddaughter Margaery is getting married to the current (inbred) king, Joffrey, and her grandson Loras is betrothed to the king's mother, which would make him the king's stepfather and brother-in-law. Cersei will be Joffrey's mother (as well as aunt) and sister-in-law, though this depends on definition. A lot of people nowadays don't count the spouses of your siblings-in-law as additional siblings-in-law, but in this society they seemingly do. Loras will be Margaery's brother and father-in-law. Then she goes on to explain how any children would fit in, specifically that Margaery's and Joffrey's son will be Loras's nephew and step-grandson. Furthermore, Tywin's marriage to his first cousin Joanna makes him both father and cousin to Jaime, Cersei, and Tyrion.

** In an alternate universe, Scarlett Witch has a daughter Nocturne with the X-Men's Nightcrawler. This links Wanda with Mystique, all her offspring and her stepdaughter X-Men's Rogue. In yet another reality, Rogue is married to Magneto and had two sons, so she ends up being related to Magneto yet again.

** Scott's brother Alex adds to the complication in the ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'' storyline, where he marries [[Comicbook/TheWasp Janet van Dyne]] in an AlternateUniverse BadFuture -- and have a daughter, whom they convince Kang to put in an isolated timeline so that she doesn't get RetGone while they try to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.
** Scott and Alex's long-lost father is the [[SpacePirates space pirate]] Corsair, and there's a third Summers brother, Vulcan, the supervillain ruler of a galactic empire. Vulcan himself is married to Deathbird, former sister-in-law to Charles Xavier (Scott's childhood father figure), meaning we can add ''him'' to the list now, too.

SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. This daughter links the Summers to the equally convoluted Pym family tree.

Vulcan himself is married to Deathbird, former sister-in-law to Charles Xavier (Scott's childhood father figure), meaning we can add ''him'' to the list now, too. Since Deathbird is pregnant with Vulcan's child, that hybrid offspring adds another branch to the Imperial Sh'iar house.
** The villainous immortal Amanda Mueller was married to Daniel Summer and had a son who's the direct ancestor to the Cyclops and company. Mueller also had the mutant daughter Fontanelle (but not by Daniel Summer).

** By the time Ruby's uncle Qrow started dating Winter, bringing the Schnee family into the mess, Ruby realized what was happening and called an emergency meeting to [[EnforcedTrope tie everyone up in a single tree]]. Ozpin ended up becoming the adoptive grandfather of Qrow and Ironwood with Glynda being declared his sister, and new loopers have been slid in where appropriate when activated.

** Meanwhile team =JNPR= went ahead and formed a standard nuclear family despite all of them being the same age, none of them being related by blood, and one of them occasionally being dead. Penny declared Ironwood to be her Generuncle Jamie, Nora claimed Penny as her cousin, and much later Nora and Ren started dating (despite also seeing each other as [[NotBloodSiblings adoptive siblings]]).

** Ruby and Yang compounded the issue by adopting siblings [[Machinma/RedVsBlue from]] [[VideoGame/Neptunia other]] [[Anime/FairyMusketeers universes]], a number which at this point totals at around six (and one of their brothers, [[VideoGame/YokaiWatch Nate Adams]], has adopted a kid of his own!).
** This habit is mimicked to a lesser degree by Blake, who only has ''three'' [[Anime/TheCatReturns out of universe]] [[Anime/Naruto siblings (and a sister in law)]], and has labeled Sun Wukong as her cousin; some time after she and Yang got engaged they also adopted [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Nadia Fortune]] as their daughter.

** Cinder Fall and Neopolitan pretended to have awoken from loops where they were related to Ruby and Yang; by the point the deceptions were revealed, however, [[BecomingTheMask the emotional connection formed was so strong that they were still called Sister and Cousin respectively.]]
