* Julie Taymore's film version of ''Film/TitusAndronicus'' portrays Chiram and Demetrius this way. They're just as touchy-feely with their mom, too. It's okay, though, because Anthony Hopkins puts them in a pie.

* Incest is a common trope across all of Storm Constantine's work. HalfIdenticalTwins Valraven and Pharinet Palindrake are lovers in ''Literature/ChroniclesOfMagravandias''. Pharinet justifies this by claiming that they are one soul in two bodies and that they are the last of a great heritage. They almost conceive a child, but Pharinet [[ConvenientMiscarriage miscarries]].

* 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. There's Taylor's bizarre statements that, "If Sharpay could figure out a way to play Romeo and Juliet at the same time, her brother would be out of a job." 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:

Twincest is '''not''' the same as TwinThreesomeFantasy. Twincest is all about twins screwing ''each other''; n a TwinThreesomeFantasy, the focus is either on the third, non-twin party, or on each other, but ''for the benefit'' of the third party. Even with true twincest, sometimes the appeal to viewers comes from the idea of inserting themselves and turning it into the fantasy. TwinThreesomeFantasy is to Twincest as GirlOnGirlIsHot is to QueerRomance. They '''can''' overlap if the twins are interested in both each other ''and'' the third party, but that's rare.

If the twins have a child together, that way be known as tw[[IncrediblyLamePun inbreeding]].

* 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.
* ''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. They kiss in the last non-DVD episode.]] The manga also revolves around their romantic, and sometimes sexual, feelings for each other.

* Subverted in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'': Kira and his SeparatedAtBirth twin sister Cagalli meet in the first episode (neither knowing they're related), and when they reunite further in the series, Cagalli comforts the emotionally ragged Kira in a purely platonic way. This is ironically taken as a threat by Flay, Kira's screwed-up girlfriend ([[MindGameShip it's not a healthy relationship]]), despite the fact there's no romantic attraction to it. Further toyed with when Cagalli displays a LuminescentBlush at overhearing Flay admit to her ex-fiance Sai that she and Kira have slept together, and when Kira's adoptive parents Caridad and Haruma (who are aware of Cagalli's identity, [[spoiler:as the mother rescued both twins as babies from the place where their biological parents died]]) show a bit of alarm when Cagalli hugs Kira goodbye.
* ''Anime/{{Gundam 00}}'' plays with this too. Whether [[DarkMessiah Ribbons]] [[AGodAmI Almark]] and his "sister" [[DarkActionGirl Hilling Care]] qualify as twins is debatable, [[spoiler:both of them being DNA-engineered children with the same sequence]], but Healing seems to show a bit more adoration than is platonic towards Ribbons.
* In ''Manga/{{Monster}}'', there is a one-sided example with Johan Liebert and his twin, Anna. Unfortunately, Johan is also [[MagnificentBastard really]] [[TheAntichrist scary]] and effectively scares Anna half to death whenever she thinks about him. Although, [[KillEmAll considering how he treats other people]], this may be the only way he's even capable of displaying affection whatsoever. It doesn't seem to be brotherly love, though, when he talks about her as his "other half". It comes off as a really creepy infatuation, usually.
* ''Manga/DotHackLegendOfTheTwilight'' hints strongly at incest, or at least lust, between two characters who are twins. This is basically a {{Flanderization}} of subtler jokes in the manga, where it was the sister's completely different-looking and skimpily-dressed computer avatar that set off the whole thing. The anime altered the storyline near the end where their relationship is implied to be much stronger.
* In ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', HalfIdenticalTwins Miki and Kozue have a bizarre relationship which may involve twincest, particularly in the movie.
* ''Anime/PleaseTwins'' features a boy who is not sure which of the two girls in the story is his long-lost twin sister. They ''both'' fall for him, making one a case of twincest and the other not. Now, if only they knew which… If only the manga and anime were the same on that point.

** Mercifully, the fanfic authors do ''not'' do this with Syaoran and Sakura and their ''many'' [[ScrewYourself clones]], as that would likely cause the already inscrutable relationship chart (for their fic, anyway) to actively kill those that look at it.

* In ''Anime/SelectorInfectedWixoss'' Yuzuki is in love with her twin brother and wishes to become his girlfriend. [[spoiler:She ends up actually getting her wish granted, but at the cost of her LRIG, Hanayo, swapping places with her.

* This makes up all Subverted in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'': Kira and his SeparatedAtBirth twin sister Cagalli meet in the drama in one case in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. Raita Banba, a high school friend of Kogoro's, had a fiancee named Hatsune Kamon. On the eve of their wedding, Hatsune was killed when the car exploded, first episode (neither knowing they're related), and Raita was the main suspect due to his CrazyJealousGuy tendencies. It was later revealed that [[spoiler:they were HalfIdenticalTwins, who were separated when they were reunite further in the series, Cagalli comforts the emotionally ragged Kira in a purely platonic way. This is ironically taken as a threat by Flay, Kira's screwed-up girlfriend ([[MindGameShip it's not a healthy relationship]]), despite the fact there's no romantic attraction to it. Further toyed with when Cagalli displays a LuminescentBlush at overhearing Flay admit to her ex-fiance Sai that she and Kira have slept together, and when Kira's adoptive parents Caridad and Haruma (who are aware of Cagalli's identity, [[spoiler:as the mother rescued both twins as babies after from the place where their biological parents died]]) show a house fire, bit of alarm when Cagalli hugs Kira goodbye.
* In ''Manga/{{Monster}}'', there is a one-sided example with Johan Liebert
and his twin, Anna. Unfortunately, Johan is also [[MagnificentBastard really]] [[TheAntichrist scary]] and effectively scares Anna half to death whenever she thinks about him. Although, [[KillEmAll considering how he treats other people]], this may be the two didn't ''know'' that only way he's even capable of displaying affection whatsoever. It doesn't seem to be brotherly love, though, when he talks about her as his "other half". It comes off as a really creepy infatuation, usually.
* ''Anime/MyselfYourself'' has twins Shuri and Shusuke with a particularly strong relationship in the face of ParentalAbandonment, with a later rumor even claiming a more illicit relationship. [[spoiler:Under threat of separation,
they committed twincest until Hatsune received a call run away together near the end]]. The DistantFinale strongly suggests that the DNA results confirms that. Already {{subtext}} has become ''canon''.
* The first episode of ''Series/OsomatsuSan'' parodies this. The characters try to re-imagine ''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'').
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'': This is the main "schtick" of GenreSavvy Hikaru and Kaoru: 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 also seem to be

they eventually learn how to become his girlfriend. [[spoiler:She ends up actually getting her wish granted, but at the cost of her LRIG, Hanayo, swapping places with her.

* ''Anime/PleaseTwins'' features a boy who is not sure which of the two girls in the story is his long-lost twin sister. They ''both'' fall for him, making one a case of twincest and the other not. Now, if only they knew which… If only the manga and anime were the same on that point.
* In ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', HalfIdenticalTwins Miki and Kozue have a bizarre relationship which may involve twincest, particularly in the movie.
* ''Manga/RozenMaiden'': Suiseiseki and Souseiseki--a.k.a. the [[FanNickname Boatlight Twins]]--get this kind of treatment a lot through fan shipping. To be fair, they are an official pairing in the series itself, so it works out pretty well overall anyway.
* In an example where the incest ''is'' relevant to the plot, in ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' [[spoiler:Hakkai's girlfriend Kanan was actually his SeparatedAtBirth twin sister.]] It's not known when they found out, but it was [[spoiler:Hakkai's]] motive for what he did after [[spoiler:she was given up to the demons by the villagers, gang raped, forcibly impregnated, and then DrivenToSuicide.]] And apparently even after they found out, they didn't actually break up or anything.
* In ''Anime/SelectorInfectedWixoss'' Yuzuki is in love with her twin brother and wishes to become his girlfriend. [[spoiler:She ends up actually getting her wish granted, but at the cost of her LRIG, Hanayo, swapping places with her. Still, she doesn't hold much of a grudge against Hanayo, as she did fulfill Yuzuki's wish, and had no malicious intent when she took over her body.]]
* On learning that Fai of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' [[spoiler:has a deceased twin brother named Fai (hence why the Fai we know and love is named Fai),]] the fangirls hit the keyboards hard.
** The Acid Tokyo arc's Kamui and Subaru (also known as the "Vampire Twins") actually manage even more HoYay than their counterparts in ''X1999'' (where they are not related in any way). [[VampiresAreSexGods Vampirism]] (and new twincest possibilities) may have something to do with it.
** Mercifully, the fanfic authors do ''not'' do this with Syaoran and Sakura and their ''many'' [[ScrewYourself clones]], as that would likely cause the already inscrutable relationship chart (for their fic, anyway) to actively kill those that look at it.



* ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'': While the newly-reunited twins Kouji and Kouichi are distinctly ''not'' an example, it does get used as a joke in episode 41. Kouji saving his brother from [[TheFightingNarcissist Crusadermon]] ends in an [[http://www.digimonspirit.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_beanstalk0078.jpg awkwardly dramatic moment]] (possibly enhanced by in-universe ShippingGoggles), which leads the beauty-obsessed Crusadermon to declare, "Ah, brotherly love is ''grand!''"[[http://www.digimonspirit.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_beanstalk0080.jpg The other observing Legendary Warriors are notably disturbed.]]
* In ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'', one of Misaki's [[LiteralSplitPersonality clones]] (Shaura) embodying her [[LoveableSexManiac repressed lust]] shows strong affection towards her twin brother Haruka, while teasing Misaki that this is what she truly wants; though she denies this, Shaura also states that the reason for Misaki partaking in her country's {{electi|veMonarchy}}on are all to gain Haruka's attention, all away from her other sisters.

* ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'' plays with twincest in a couple ways. Twincest first shows up with Gerridon and Jamethiel, where it looks like VillainousIncest: They were twins, consorts, and the most infamous individuals in the entire history of their people.[[note]]Gerridon made a DealWithTheDevil, and two thirds of the entire population's souls were reaped to pay for his immortality.
