Twin characters in a work of modern fiction come in all sorts (though they have a [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins disproportionate tendency to be identical]]). However, when twins are ''born'' over the course of the story (as part of a BabiesEverAfter or otherwise), they are almost always male and female fraternal twins. This is the most common twin pairing in RealLife (Identical twins are, of course, always the same gender; applying this trope to a [[HalfIdenticalTwins pair of identical twins]] is a CriticalResearchFailure.)

* Possibly averted in the ''{{Belgariad}}'' with Polgara's twins, although since they're deliberately nameless and genderless it's really hard to say.

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series, one of Min's viewings says [[spoiler: Elayne]]'s pregnancy will result in twins, a daughter and a son. As of ''The Towers of Midnight'' Min's viewings have never yet been wrong, so this trope will almost certainly come to pass. In an interesting mythological twist, one "[[FanNickname loony theory]]" is that they will be the reincarnation of the twin Heroes of the Horn Shivan and Calian, whose coming [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt heralds the end of an Age]].

This turns out to be a curse rather than a blessing, as [[spoiler:[[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness before he was killed by the king]], the fortune teller makes one last prophecy that the king's child will be born with a birthmark, a sign that he or she will bring the country to ruin. The queen ends up having twins, and it's the boy who gets the birthmark. The king orders that the prince be [[GirlInTheTower locked in a tower and kept there]].]]
