* In ''Literature/BeautyARetellingOfBeautyAndTheBeast'', Beauty's older sister Hope marries Gervain, the blacksmith, and ten months later gives birth to twins. The babies are a combination of this trope and DeadGuyJunior; the daughter is named Mercy, after Beauty's younger sister who died, and the son is named Richard, after his paternal grandfather..

* Played straight on ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' when Nellie gives birth to twins. It's especially contrived since she and her Jewish husband had agreed beforehand if the baby was a boy, he'd be raised Jewish; if a girl, Christian.

* Played straight on ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' when Nellie gives birth to twins. It's especially contrived since she and her Jewish husband had agreed beforehand if the baby was a boy, he'd be raised Jewish; if a girl, Christian. Both sets of grandparents were therefore very anxious about the whole matter.



* Averted on ''Series/{{ER}}'' with Doug and Carol's twins, which were both girls. Interesting, since the previous season, the audience had gotten a pretty strong hint that this trope would have been played straight (a psychic patient who claimed to be able to see inside people was trying to decipher if Carol was having a boy or a girl. Her expression seemed to indicate that it was both).
* On ''Series/ThirtyRock'', when Liz and Criss adopt twins, they're a boy and a girl. It turns out that the boy is a miniature Tracy and the girl is a miniature Jenna, meaning [[OnlySaneEmployee Liz's job has actually been perfect practice for raising them]].

* Myth/ClassicalMythology: Apollo and Artemis. A weird variant is Leda's quadruplets: Castor, Polydeuces, Clytemnestra and Helen.
** Where according to the most popular version Helen and Polydeuces were fathered by Zeus, and Castor and Clytemnestra by Leda's husband Tyndareus. [[WhaleEgg From eggs]], one for the brothers and one for the sisters. You see, Zeus had mated with Leda in the form of a swan and...you know what, this is Greek Mythology. Things aren't supposed to make sense.

* In [[WhatCouldHaveBeen early drafts]] of ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', Simba and Nala were shown to have twin cubs named "Chaka" and "Shani". Chaka was scrapped in order to keep continuity with the [[Disney/TheLionKing first film]] and because his character wasn't working out well. Shani had her name changed to "Kiara" and became an only child. She stayed this way until ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', an AlternateUniverse take where Kiara has a younger brother named "Kopa".

* ComicBook/MarvelUniverse: ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s twins. Probably lots of others. Averted slightly with the Scarlet Witch's semi-imaginary [[EnfantTerrible evil demon twin boys]].
** At the time the twins were born (at which point they were not yet retconned as imaginary) the writer explained in an interview that he made them same-sex specifically to avert this trope.

* Literature/TheBobbseyTwins: two sets -- Bert and Nan are the older pair, Freddie and Flossie the younger. They're even ColorCodedCharacters: Bert and Nan are both dark-haired, [[ThemeTwinNaming Freddie and Flossie]] are both blond.
* In Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy, Leia gives birth to Jacen and Jaina; in ComicBook/DarkEmpire she had another boy, [[DeadGuyJunior Anakin]]. During the Literature/NewJediOrder, it was found that the ScaryDogmaticAliens have superstitions about twins, so Shmi Skywalker's surviving descendants were able to take advantage of that. Tellingly, Anakin, the only single birth in the clan, was the only one who died there.

* In the WomenOfTheOtherworld series, the only female werewolf eventually gets pregnant, though this doesn't stop her from [[PregnantBadass battling bad guys]]. When she finally gives birth, her children turn out to be a boy and a girl, and they're both werewolves (usually only sons inherit the trait).
