* ''{{Dilbert}}'' creator Scott Addams, in ''The Dilbert Principle'', points out that the invention of ''Series/StarTrek''-style holographic virtual reality would be the death of the human race. He points out that nobody will be interested in the ego-crushing business of romance and dating when they can program their own fantasy with no risk of rejection or the messier, [[Squick]]ier complexities of human interaction. As illustration of this, he pointed out that if he can get Cindy Crawford and her identical twin sister in the holodeck any time he wants with no risk of rejection or refusal, he would never come out.

* This is the main "schtick" of Hikaru and Kaoru from ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'': making the club's female clients swoon and sigh over "the forbidden love between brothers!!!" Whether it's a put-on or not is hard to tell, given their trickster personalities. They have some… unusual tendencies with each other, even when they're alone. (For example, sharing a bed… nude.) Also deconstructed, as the twins are revealed to be dangerously codependent. In the manga, this eventually sparks a feud between them, and they eventually learn how to be individuals.

* There's Kinkaku and Ginkaku of ''Manga/{Naruto}}''. The characters aren't major, but if they were their twincest fandom may be higher. However, there have been fanfics in the past, and some fandom--in forums, and during chapter reviews, who toy with the idea, being that the two of them are constantly together, and they say each other's names in ever breath. It's canon that the word Ginkaku has said most in his entire life is his brother's name. And Kinkaku, while normally stoic and composed, manga-wise, flies into rage whenever his brother is seriously harmed. It also appears they stayed together their entire lives, and neither of them ever got married, or had any children. So there's room to toy with the twincest idea, and a few of the fandom has.
* ''Anime/OsomatsuKun'' features a group of sextuplets. A lot of shipping between every pair and sometimes even all six together occurs. As mentioned above, the series itself made fun of this phenomenon.

* ''Anime/CandyBoy'' is entirely about ''[[SchoolgirlLesbians yuri]]'' twincest, in that Yukino does like to tease her sister Kanade quite a bit. There's nothing explicit going on, since Kanade decides to keep a cool outer appearance, although she is obviously enamored with her sister. [[spoiler:Something explicit ''is'' going on by the end.]][[color:white: They kiss in the last non-DVD episode.]] The manga also revolves around their romantic, and sometimes sexual, feelings for each other.

* The first episode of ''Series/OsomatsuSan'' parodies this. The characters try to reimagine ''Series/OsomatsuKun'' for a modern day audience as an idol, harem show with a CastFullOfPrettyBoys. This includes IncestSubtext between the brothers (mind you they're ''sextuplets'').

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/AnotherPeriod''. Beatrice and her twin brother Fredrick are in love and regularly have sex, despite the fact Beatrice is married (to a [[TheBeard gay man who also has a lover]] and who happens to be married to Beatrice's sister). One episode has Freud trying to cure Fredrick of his supposed homosexuality. When he sees him having sex with Beatrice he feels the treatment worked but is unphased at Fredrick being with his sister.

-->'''Dan:''' How do you know so many twins?\\
'''Chuck:''' [[ThePornomancer …twins find me]].



* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Heavily lampshaded and subverted with Mason and Madison [=McCarthy=]. Apparently the Cheerios have had to tell them that ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' is not a good example for a relationship, and during the "Home" performance in "Homecoming", Mason sings the line "Boy I love my ma and pa / Not the way that I do love you". Kitty explicitly compares them to [[Series/GameOfThrones Jaime and Cersei Lannister]]. But Madison's ClingyJealousGirl behavior is actually because she's always been a ParentalSubstitute to her brother, since their actual parents are always out performing rather than being parents. They work it out, and she backs off.

* Ryan and Sharpay Evans from ''HighSchoolMusical'' have a suspiciously close relationship, what with singing love songs to each other and playing romantic leads opposite each other. Plus there's that video of "I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You", a song in which Troy, Gabriella, Ryan, and Sharpay all sing--Troy and Gabriella (established couple) sing to each other and Ryan and Sharpay… also sing to each other. Sample lyrics:
-->''I can't take my eyes off of you\\
I know you feel the same way too, yeah\\
I can't take my eyes off of you\\
All it took… was one look\\
For a dream come true''
