In the first Literature/InspectorMcLevy novel ''The Shadow of the Serpent'', the assassin known as the Serpent is sleeping with his illegitimate daughter. However, the daughter is the one who instigated the relationship as a means of controlling her father. Needless to say, both are thoroughly screwed-up and evil people.

* A ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' example that takes some explaining: Former Archon Katherine Steiner-Davion was deposed by an alliance led by her brother after she usurped the regency of her sister and cracked down on her critics in an increasingly tyrannical manner. She was remanded over to Khan Vlad Ward of [[ProudWarriorRace Clan Wolf]], a society that reproduces via DesignerBabies. Growing increasingly hostile and vengeful towards the Inner Sphere houses, including her own, she eventually ''stole her own brother's DNA to create a genetically incestuous child'' just so she could raise him to re-ignite a war between the Clans and the Inner Sphere. No, Victor had no input on this (especially considering he was murdered before he ever found out about it), and no one has any idea how she managed to acquire his DNA, either. GodSaveUsFromTheQueen

* [[spoiler:Jaime and Cersei Lannister]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''--who are as villainous as GreyAndGrayMorality gets. Interestingly, for a long time they were the only genuinely loving couple in the series without a tragic ending in sight. Subverted, in that after [[spoiler:Jaime]]'s HeelFaceTurn and improved morality, he still loves her. It's not until she [[spoiler:turns into a paranoid wreck and runs herself into the ground]] that the relationship fails. [[spoiler:Cersei also has an affair with their weak-willed cousin Lancel]] (though first-cousin relationships are acceptable in Westeros--[[spoiler:Cersei's parents were first cousins]]).
** Played straight with the Targaryen family, who married brother-to-sister for hundreds of years to keep [[InTheBlood their blood pure]], which resulted in a degree of [[RoyallyScrewedUp being batshit insane]]. Not all Targaryens qualify as villains, but the ones who do tend to do so in grand style--Aerys II's madness was so violently destructive that he overthrew his own dynasty, committing several unpleasant murders which sparked off Robert's Rebellion. Aerys also became so insane that he got turned on watching people getting burned alive and would then violently rape his sister-wife, even though he had been forced to marry her by his parents--who themselves were siblings and had married for love against ''their'' father's wishes. Though Jaehaerys the Wise, considered [[TheGoodKing the best King]] to ever sit the Iron Throne, married his sister. There's an in-universe saying that when a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin to decide if he'll be great or mad. However the unpleasant and mentally unstable [[TheEvilPrince Viserys Taragryen]], though never marrying his sister Daenerys, sometimes treats her in a sexual manner and [[spoiler:attempted to take her virginity before her wedding]].
*** Another Targaryen King, Maegor [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Cruel]], [[EvilUncle killed one of his nephews]], Prince Aegon, and married their wife, his niece Rhaena. Thankfully, he died shortly after when Aegon's brother Jaehaerys rose against him.
** [[EvilOverlord Euron]] [[EyepatchOfPower "Crow's Eye"]] Greyjoy, [[spoiler:King of the Iron Islands]], is implied to have molested his younger brother Aeron Greyjoy, who despises and fears him, and still has nightmares of a creaking hinge when Euron visited him at night.
** Also [[spoiler:Craster and his wives, who are also his daughters.]]

** OTOH, other incestuous relationships aren't seen in '''such''' bad light. Raquesis was in UnrequitedLove with her half-brother Eldigan, whereas Claud and Sylvia are hinted to be either long lost siblings or distant cousins, and they were all good guys. In the second generation Lester and Lana can marry their cousins Patty and Faval (with the bonus that their moms, Aideen and Briggid, were ''identical twin sisters''), while Larcei is one of the most likely suitors for her half-cousin Shanan ''and'' [[GenerationXerox Raquesis' daughter Nanna can potentially marry Eldigan's son Ares]] (which is actually how the player gets in-game confirmation of how Raquesis really felt about Eldigan), and they're all on the side of good too.

* Part of the demonisation of Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia) is the continuing rumours that he had sex with his daughter, Lucrezia borgia. Quite a few historians today are doubtful that this ever happened, placing it in mythology territory.

* Once you learn the backstory, ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' becomes MADE of this. Basically, [[spoiler: more or less every one of Fiona's stalkers is closely related to her, with the exception of Daniella. Her family's been cloning themselves through {{alchemy}} for centuries, each generation being composed of identical copies of the alchemist Aureolus Belli, Fiona being the first naturally born, non-Aureolus-clone Belli in hundreds of years. Her father was one of these clones, and his "brother" Riccardo stalks Fiona in an [[AttemptedRape attempt]] to [[StalkerWithATestTube impregnate her with another clone]]. Again, Riccardo is, not counting his rapid degeneration due to being hastily made, completely identical to Fiona's [[ParentalIncest father]], even if he wasn't already her [[CreepyUncle uncle]]. Debilitas, the first stalker in the game, is another clone, this time made by Riccardo. It's not immediately obvious though since Debilitas's creation was even more botched than Riccardo's own, though Debilitas does not yet seem to be suffering from any degeneration. This might not completely count as Debilitas's attraction to Fiona is entirely innocent and his danger to her is unintentional, but still. Lorenzo, on the other hand, swings right back into this trope. He is Fiona's "grandfather" and, again due to the cloning, is also genetically her father, the same as Riccardo. Like Riccardo, he wants Fiona's body, but for the Azoth contained inside rather than purely out of lust. Though, given some of the comments he makes towards her, especially after he's regressed in age to a young man, and the tone of voice he uses when talking to her, he's probably got some fairly squicky plans for her other than just Azoth-extraction.]]
