[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Characters with incestuous subtext in a story]]. Even though incest is a taboo in many places in the world, it is not entirely impossible that accidental subtext can sneak in unintentionally, or placed surreptitiously by authors.

This can originate from the author intentionally playing with the closeness of the characters' relationship and slipping into romance, even though nothing serious was supposed to come out of it. In some works, especially comedy ones, this is usually PlayedForLaughs involving LampshadeHanging, and can involve a DiggingYourselfDeeper speech: "It's NotWhatItLooksLike! She's my sister!" "...That's DISGUSTING!"

There is another variation, when the attraction itself is textually there, but the characters are [[NotBloodRelated not literally blood related]], so openly sexual relationships can also have incestuous subtext. For example, in Japanese works, girls might use UsefulNotes/JapaneseSiblingTerminology for a guy ([[SchoolgirlLesbians or especially]] [[OneeSama a girl]]) they are in love with.

A RelativeError can come across this way (either intentionally or not) if the original "romantic" scene is a little too convincing. Compare FlirtyStepsiblings. Contrast IncestYayShipping, where subtext may or may not exist but fans create a relationship regardless.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5Ir6CzxKl4 This]] commercial from Folgers, now famous throughout the Internet. It was aiming for a touching reunion between a guy who came back from West Africa for Christmas and his sister, and... [[RelationshipWritingFumble failed]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}''
** Tomoya once has a weird ImagineSpot about shipping [[BrotherSisterIncest Sunohara with his sister]].
** Tomoya seems to have a [[LittleSisterHeroine little sister kink]] in general, as he was ''very'' into it when Sunohara's little sister Mei started calling him [[JapaneseSiblingTerminology 'niichan']]. He doesn't actually have a little sister, though.
* ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}''. Mira is too obsessed with her brother. And Keith after meeting with Mira and accepting her on his side makes her wear dress and all dinner looks like... a date. When Keith [[HeelFaceTurn becomes good]] they share some sweet moments and she even [[LuminescentBlush BLUSHES]] then they talk. Squint at the final ending, they live together and their interaction isn't unlike those of newly married couple, and [[HoYay Gus]] is nowhere to be seen, so...
* The ''Anime/SailorMoon'' Creator/{{Cloverway}} dub creates an interesting [[InvertedTrope inversion]] with Haruka and Michiru/Amara and Michelle. The romantic subtext is ''meant'' to be there... but they're not supposed to be cousins in the original. The company that decided to make them cousins did so for the exact reason of preventing there being any openly gay people in the show, without actually changing enough other stuff to even try and hide how they feel for each other, just hoping no one would think it's odd for two cousins to be THAT devoted to each other.
* Many in ''Anime/CodeGeass'', to the point that [[IncestSubtext/CodeGeass it needed its own page]]. Of course, everybody already knows about Lelouch and [[MemeticMutation memetic]] [[BigBrotherInstinct siscon]], who started a war for his sister Nunnally's sake, but an even better example of this trope would have to be the last episode, where they both tell each other "I love you" using the Japanese terms ''aishiteru'' and ''aishite imasu'', which are generally used for romantic affection. Lelouch has this with his half-sister Euphemia, as well.
* As the title suggests, ''LightNovel/SisterPrincess'' is full of this, particularly with the older sisters to their brother: one actively flirts with him, one gets from him a hairpin that used to be another man's gift to his wife, and one [[spoiler:was his lover in a previous life]]. Oh, and all of them get to have a fake wedding with him. And that's just the start.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** After he meets her in the mindscape, the [[spoiler:Naruto/Kushina]] subtext was really blatant, with him calling her "beautiful" (a "babe" in the [[GoodBadTranslation English transation]]), her blushing multiple times, and so on. Naruto only states this ''after'' she told him that she considers herself unattractive. Naruto's father later notes that Sakura (whom Naruto has long had feelings for) is eerily similar to [[spoiler:Kushina]], so it's hard to tell whether Naruto acts the way he does because [[spoiler:Kushina]] reminds him of Sakura, or if it's the other way around.
** In chapters 589 and 590, [[spoiler:Sasuke and Itachi]] both admit that they love each other, and the word for 'love' is the deeply romantic ''aishiteru''. Yes, you can argue it was done in a [[spoiler:brotherly]] way.
** [[KissingCousins Neji and Hinata]] often give this vibe, every time they have screentime together. Although they are supposed to come off as half-siblings (though they're technically cousins), they strangely give a romantic vibe mixed in that apparent familial affection.
*** ''Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth'' series, where Neji imagines the story of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', in which he casts himself as Romeo and Hinata as Juliet, or as they call each other in his fantasy: ''Nejio and Hinaette''. Neji gets so angry when he hears about Hinata trying to date Naruto, that it's not even brotherly protection anymore, but plain jealousy, because he attacks Hinata furiously, saying: "Never...you and Naruto...doing things like that...it's...''[[UnstoppableRage an infamy]]''!". He also imagines Hinata in a spandex suit that Guy-Sensei tries to dresses her with, at one point, and Hinata asks him in his fantasy ''How do I look, Neji?'', before Neji snaps out of it quickly, snatches the suit from Guy-Sensei and tears it apart.
*** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd0wJBuz718 episode 17]], the imaginary Neji and Hinata embrace lovingly as their lines are something like this:
-->'''Hinata:''' O, Nejio, Nejio, wherefore art thou, Nejio?
-->'''Neji:''' [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe Hinaette...my life were better ended, than death prorogued...wanting of thy love!]]
** [[http://www.mangareader.net/rock-lees-springtime-of-youth/20/8 Issue 20]], where he hears the girls talking about Hinata's breasts getting bigger, and he has a severe nosebleed at that, while the other guys yell at him to get a hold of himself. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g08SaF2O2g this.]] [[http://jackoffjill21.tumblr.com/post/44239026098/i-think-neji-just-came And this]].
** In issue 614, he pretty much [[spoiler:sacrificed himself for her]]. [[TheNotLoveInterest So she was basically his most important person.]]
** Neji's reaction upon seeing Hinata the first time was to remark about her beauty. Mind you, they were 4 and 3, respectively, at the time.
* ''UragiriWaBokuNoNamaeWoShitteiru'': Touko and Tsukumo are rather close. Also, if you count the equation 'Zweilt partner = Couple'...
* ''FinalFantasyUnlimited'' has brothers Shiroi Kumo and Akai Kiri, who are so obsessed with each other that anything one of them does has something to do with the other in some way, shape, or form. At the start of the series, it has been twelve years since they've last seen each other, [[spoiler:and hell, Kiri's been ''dead'' all that time, too]]. Their reunion features a lot of SayMyName and furiously clashing swords. Let's not even get into the soul dragons.
* ''PandoraHearts'': Gil's younger brother, Vincent, is [[{{Yandere}} extremely possessive]] of him.
* Yui & Ui from ''Manga/KOn'' are VERY close. Both are extremely affectionate towards the other, Ui has ended up crying at the realization Yui will be/is gone on vacation. Ui's character song is literally titled [[FauxSymbolism "Lovely Sister LOVE"]] while Yui wrote what amounts to a love song to Ui...
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', there are rather questionable actions Gihren Zabi takes in the series concerning his sister Kycilia. Firstly there's the indifferent behavior Gihren has towards Garma and Dozle's deaths, and having no qualms with [[SelfMadeOrphan killing Degwin]], but yet specifically stating that he plans to rule the new Zeon with ''[[TermsOfEndangerment "dear sister"]]''. Then also going out of his way to make sure Kycilia was warned about the Solar Ray firing by a messenger so she wouldn't be killed, the same weapon that intentionally killed daddy. And of course there's the [[GreenEyedMonster dark tone of voice]] he used when Kycilia ''dared'' to mention having Char pilot the Zeong, saying "Char, once again. You're obsessed with him." Not coming to the logical conclusion that Kycilia might have chosen Char due to his newtype potential, but getting emotional over it instead. Completely one-sided, it's a mixture of [[StalkerWithACrush Gihren]] imagining [[UnresolvedSexualTension sexual tension]] to feed [[VillainousIncest his fantasy]] [[BirdsOfAFeather because she shares some of his beliefs]] [[CannotSpitItOut but of course cannot say anything about it]]. Kycilia is of course [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn unaware to any of this conflict]] and rather cares more about their [[SelfMadeOrphan dead dad]]. Can lead to NoYay for obvious reasons.
** In the ''MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'' version of Char's first encounter with Sayla their fight scene is staged in such a way that it looks uncomfortably like [[AttemptedRape he's trying to force himself on her]]. To his (very small) credit he does get a very subtle OhCrap moment when he realizes who she is.
* The ''artists'' for both the ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' manga and anime adaptations really played up the {{twincest}} in official art. It doesn't help that there actually is some subtext in the anime, even though both have male love interests. In the original VisualNovel, Shion actually says to Mion that "If you were a guy, I would fall in love with you". Curiously, she did NOT add "and if we weren't related".
* In ''DGrayMan'' has Komui and Lenalee Lee has the [[http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/787/dgrayman09100.jpg room]], that Komui designed for her. Their moments during the zombie arc don't help either.
* Chiaki and Kana from ''Manga/MinamiKe'' seem to show rather unsisterly affections towards Haruka, regularly fawning over her and showering her with praise. Perhaps it might be because she's their ParentalSubstitute, but the BeachEpisode is very suspect, where they're incredibly eager to see her in a bikini.
* In ''Anime/MaiHime'', there is some between Mai and her younger brother Takumi. Yuuichi and Akira both suspect that Takumi has a sister complex. Takumi is initially Mai's most important person (needed to summon her Child, although [[spoiler:by the time he dies, Yuuichi has replaced him]]), and she becomes upset when he, seeking to become independent, appears to be drifting away from her.
* Pretty much the entire point of ''OnegaiTwins'', although the two girls promise that whichever one is the sister can't be romantically involved with Maiku. Until they KNOW, though, both girls are very protective of another girl having a possible relationship with their possible brother. Of course, the series certainly implies that their promise wouldn't necessarily preclude the two girls being more than friendly with [[SchoolgirlLesbians each other]], especially given the amount of time they spend [[FanService "skinshipping"]] together [[FuroScene in the bath]].
* Mairu and Kururi from ''{{Durarara}}'' seem to go past subtext. The two share a kiss in the second {{OVA}}, and are particularly touchy-feely with each other if their dialogue in the chatroom is anything to go by. Even when the two of them kiss Aoba, Mairu is more excited about her IndirectKiss with Kururi than anything else.
* ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' has two twin characters, Luca and Laura, who have a... very close bond. It's a driving force in both the manga and anime.
* The manga for ''Manga/DotHackLegendOfTheTwilight''. The anime however, removes the subtext, causing fans to dub the series as ''.hack//Twincest''.
* In ''Anime/{{Monster}}'', it's played with between twin siblings Johan and Anna/Nina. Johan has quite the obsession over Nina, and she is probably the only person in the world that he cares about enough for people to try to hold Nina hostage knowing that it'll lure Johan out and [[spoiler:he's willing to eradicate his existence merely to make her happy]]; Nina initially cannot remember Johan due to a post-traumatic induced amnesia, and when he begins sending her anonymous "romantic" emails (e.g., ''"I was born to smother you with flowers."''), she assumes that it's from a secret admirer.
* ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' has the Hitachin twins, Hikaru and Kaoru. While they do share a very strong bond, they play up the incestuous subtext when performing their duties for the club. The relationship is a lot more developed in the manga, where, even though it's still clearly brotherly, it can be interpreted as something else. Kaoru sacrifices so much fo Hikaru it's not hard to think of his interest as slightly romantic.
* ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena,'' between the Kaoru siblings. [[spoiler: Nanami is also in love with Touga, her brother. The less said about Akio and Anthy, the better, for sanity's sake, but needless to say it goes ''well'' beyond subtext and into text.]]
* Rito and Mikan in ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', particularly on Mikan's part, getting jealous and lonely when Rito pays attention to other girls. Then there is the time Rito said that he thought of Mikan as "a special existance beyond even a sibling" and you'll be forgiven for thinking that the subtext is pretty much text now.
* The second episode of ''Saishuu Shiken Kujira'' has a scene with Mutsumi being woken up by his younger sister knocking on his door. As she's just as tired as he is, she falls on top of him as he goes to open the door, and he then spends a few moments thinking of how nice she smells, until he snaps out of it.
* A good portion of ''[[LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}} Nisemonogatari]] '' has this. Araragi says at one point "If you weren't my sister, I'd fall in love with you." Then there's the infamous toothbrushing scene, which in true [[Creator/StudioShaft Shaft]] style gleefully toes a ''very'' thin line between subtext and text.
* There's a reason Edward and Alphonse are a very popular pairing for ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. It's even worse in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]]; it focuses heavily on the brothers and their extreme devotion to each other (ironically, considering it's the second anime that's called ''Brotherhood''), and downplays their relationships with other characters. Ed has at least three love interests but none of them get anywhere on screen. He spends a majority of the series, and especially TheMovie, focusing on Al.
* ''Manga/ChronoCrusade''
** Joshua is ''very'' obsessed with his older sister Rosette after he gets Chrono's horns [[ComesGreatInsanity and they turn him insane]]. It's later revealed to (probably) be because of a forgotten promise to himself that he would grow up "as fast as he could" so he could protect Rosette, but the way he talks about her and embraces her when they reunite really makes it seem like he has a thing for her. It doesn't help that he calls Fiore, whom he seems to have a crush on, "sister" at one point in the story. (And in fact, in the anime version he actually mistakes Fiore for his sister most of the time, but still has a few shippy scenes with her.)
** In the manga version, Aion brings the severed head of Pandaemonium so close to his face it almost looks like he might have been kissing her. (His back is turned in the panel prior, so it's hard to say for sure.) [[spoiler:It's later revealed that Pandaemonium is Aion's mother.]]
** A (possibly) accidental example in the anime version: Chrono and Aion are portrayed as having been close friends in flashbacks, with Chrono saying at one point that Aion was "like a brother" to him. However, a later flashback has Aion bringing Chrono's face so close to his that they almost kiss. This scene is infamous among fans of the original manga, [[spoiler:since Chrono and Aion are actually twins in the manga version]].
** Implied to have gone down between [[spoiler: Bird's Nest]] and [[spoiler: his younger brother Michel]] before [[spoiler: Michel]] died. Although, since Bird's Nest isn't always a very reliable narrator, and the entirety of being a trapeze artist in the manga gives off an erotic {{Subtext}} this is still very much up in the air.
* Loads in ''OreNoImoutoGaKonnaNiKawaiiWakeGaNai''. Being that BrotherSisterIncest is the ElephantInTheRoom of the series, which results in a constant WillTheyOrWontThey between Kyousuke and his sister Kirino. The anime turns it up a notch, the manga turns it up even ''further''.
* ''Anime/QueensBlade'' has subtext between the Vance sisters, though it's closer to writing on the wall.
** In Claudette's case, the third OVA shows her lusting after her younger half-sister, Elina. While in the ''Hide & Seek'' manga, she [[http://www.citymanga.com/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/chapter-16/20/ admits to being jealous]] that Elina has entered the ''QB'' tournament to be with Leina, instead of her, but is unaware that Elina has feelings for her as well.
** It's made blatantly clear that Elina wants her older sister, Leina. A flashback to their childhood reveal Elina was overly affectionate toward her even then, and became progressively infatuated with her when they were teens, to the point that Leina soon took notice and became put off by Elina's behavior. Despite this, the two are later shown spooning in bed with one another, in the nude, with Elina happily nuzzling Leina's breasts. However, contrary to what Claudette thinks, Elina has eyes for her too. In chapter 20 of ''Hide & Seek'' she's shown [[http://www.citymanga.com/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/chapter-20/5/ fantasizing about cuddling in bed with Claudette]]; complete with hearts and [[BishieSparkle bishie sparkling.]] And Elina [[ClingyJealousGirl becomes jealous]] both times it appeared that Ymir and Claudette were getting too close to each other.
** A later chapter reveals that Leina knew about Claudette's feelings for Elina and tells her to be honest about them. She even tells her it's a good thing and [[ShipperOnDeck seems to support them being together.]] Elina also notes that Claudette is [[http://www.citymanga.com/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/chapter-28/17/ "kind of cute, when she's frail"]] while holding each other's gaze.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Yuzu is a bit too into Ichigo after the time-skip. There are multiple scenes that can be interpreted as her having a crush on her big brother.
* In ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'', the main character Ichika Orimura is suspected of this in regard to his older sister, [[HotTeacher Chifuyu]], who looks ''"better than a model"'' in his own words. This came to a head during the BeachEpisode when she comes out wearing a skimpy black bikini [[spoiler:that he inadvertently picked out for her]] and his subsequent reaction to it. Charles, one of the girls vying for Ichika's affections, is ''not'' amused and even slightly downcast at the thought of having "Orimura-''sensei''" as a rival. The [[BalancedHarem girls]] talk with Chifuyu later that night and she declares (after a stiff drink) that they should strive to [[MySisterIsOffLimits "get to her level"']] to have Ichika for themselves. Chifuyu herself isn't immune to the speculation, especially after this confession to a fellow teacher:
-->'''Chifuyu''': "It's not......like that......no, didn't I say before that I don't have special feelings towards that guy, but how can I say it......a little brother should belong to his older sister, right?"
* In Episode 5 of ''Manga/ServantXService'', Hasebe shows up at his sister Kaoru's house with his drunken coworker Lucy. When Hasebe says he and Lucy need a place to stay for the night, Kaoru immediately thinks that her younger brother is trying to proposition her for a [[ThreeWaySex three-way]]. [[AThreesomeIsHot She doesn't seem to hate the idea, either]].
* ''Manga/ACruelGodReigns'': This is played with throughout the series with Jeremy and his mother Sandra. Although mostly {{Played for Laughs}} in the thoughts of the other characters, there were a few quick hints that suggest serious subtext-a few panels that creepily seem to show Sandra kissing a very young Jeremy on the lips after telling him to call her by her first name after the death of his father, and thoughts from Jeremy along these lines:
--> '''Jeremy''': I loved Sandra. She was my best friend. No. She was my lover.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and its spin-offs have a lot of ShipTease between Shinji and Rei, especially in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', only to turn out that [[spoiler:she's a clone of his mother]].
* ''Anime/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' is notorious for being incredibly gay while [[HideYourLesbians never really having any couples]]. Yoshino gets paired up with her cousin, Rei.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''Bongo Comics''
** In the comic "The Simpsons Winter Wingding 2" there is a story titled "VSI: Valentive Scene Investigators" where Lisa receives, anonymously, a letter valentine. Later Bart admits he wrote it only to encourage Lisa, because previously she was depressed at not receiving a letter valentine. At the end of the story, the whole school laughs at them both.
* ''MadameMirage'' provides a peculiar example: after her sister Angie is murdered, Harper creates a hyper-sexualized holographic version of her, the eponymous Mirage, to avenge her. Harper's explanation is that with [[DistractedByTheSexy everyone paying attention]] to the impossibly well-endowed FemmeFatale Mirage, no one would be looking for scrawny little Harper. Except that Mirage still looks just like a hyper-sexualized version of Harper's sister Angie, when Harper could just as easily made her look like someone not connected to Harper in any way. So it kind of comes off as Harper acting out her repressed lust for Angie.
* The villainous PuppeteerParasite Abyss from ''Comicbook/LesLegendaires'' considers the [[HeelFaceTurn former villain]] Tenebris to be his sister, due to both of them having been created artificially by their "father", the EvilSorcerer [[BigBad Darkhell]]. However, the way he acts toward her (referring to her as ''"his"'' Tenebris, openly stating he loves her, restraining her with suspectly tentacle-like energy structures and forcibly opening her mouth with it...) sounds a lot more like some kind of twisted romantic love/sexual desire rather than brother affection...
* In ''ComicBook/FantasticFour: Unstable Molecules'', Jonathan Storm has a crush on the comic book character Vapor Girl, unaware that she's based on his sister Susan Storm. If it comes to that, in the real MarvelUniverse, Johnny married (a Skrull impersonating) Alicia Masters, who looked so much like Sue that in her first appearance her own family couldn't tell them apart if Alicia wore a wig.
* [[ScarletWitch Scarlet Witch]] and {{Quicksilver}} of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' have this in spades. Pietro has always been extremely overprotective of Wanda, showing jealousy whenever someone showed romantic interest in her, while on Wanda's side, the thing that finally made her snap and declare "no more mutants" at the end of ''House of M'' was Pietro being beaten into a pulp by Magneto (their father). And that's just the mainstream 616 universe; ComicBook/UltimateMarvel [[BrotherSisterIncest takes it a little further than that...]]
* ''{{Comicbook/Superman}}'':
** Superman and his teenage cousin {{Comicbook/Supergirl}} had some of this in the Silver Age. Particularly in ''Action Comics'' #260, when they tricked Lois Lane into thinking their alter egos were getting married (and they kissed). [[http://www.demotivationalposters.org/image/demotivational-poster/0810/whoah-superman-supergirl-doris-comics-funny-cousins-demotivational-poster-1222846625.jpg And then there was this,]] in another incident where Clark tells Kara that if he ever got married, it would be to someone ''just'' like her.
** In the nineties, Supergirl, who in that continuity was a genetically-engineered shapeshifter grown in a lab in an alternate reality, was the lover of Lex Luthor. The reason she fell for him so readily was that he reminded her of the Lex Luthor from her reality, who was the scientist who had created her. That's right, she was sleeping with the alternate-reality version of her father.
* In ''Comicbook/CaptainAtom'', the experiment that transformed [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Captain Nathaniel Adam]] into Captain Atom also catapulted him eighteen years forward in time, by which time his infant daughter had grown to young adulthood, whereas he was still physically and emotionally twenty-six. Of course, she did not remember him or recognize him and thought of her stepfather as her father, and did not know he had returned. So when he went to meet her and try to get to know her, without revealing who he really was, she thought he was trying to pick her up, and clearly was attracted to him, even though she turned him down. Later, after she found out the whole story, she started to have dreams in which he was a knight in shining armor rescuing her. Sometime after that, she got romantically involved with his best friend, who was also her godfather. All things considered, there was pretty clear subtext that her feelings for him were not altogether daughterly.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* In ''Webcomic/HowIBecameYoursRiseOfTheAgniArmy'', brother-and-sister Kuzon and Lilith share a room despite being in their late teens/early adulthood, their beds not five feet away from each other. And Kuzon's dialogue to Lilith regarding her bad dreams sounds closer to what a concerned ''boyfriend'' would say, not a big brother.
* In ''FanFic/{{Whispers}}'', Arcanus's mother jokes that [[ChickMagnet girls will fall all over him]] - and that in her youth, she might have been one of them. The chapter ends before we see his reaction.
* It is hinted in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' FanFic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4267279/1/Hero_High_Sphinx_Academy Hero High: Sphinx Academy]] that Lady Karen has stronger feelings for her brother then brother and sister, especially on how much she likes it when he dotes on her. And the author isn't shy adding subtext for [[KissingCousins Ben and Gwen]].
* Chapter 66 of ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' has [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Imouto]] attempt to invoke the BrotherSisterIncest trope, by stealing her brother Kyon's cell phone and making it difficult for him to contact his friends, so that he will be forced to spend time with her instead. Her inner monologue about it is one of the most disturbing things in the whole fic, [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror and that's saying something]].
-->''Next time,'' Imouto thought to herself with a devious smile on her face, ''maybe you won't be so eager to ditch me at the house all by myself, Kyon. Maybe you've learned your lesson for now. Or not. You won't be able to leave me for those silly friends all the time, big brother. Oh, no. I'm the one who really loves you. Not any of those harpies. If I ever see any of them steal you away from me, then I'll claw their eyes out. [You're] '''my''' big brother, Kyon. I'm '''your''' cute little sister. And I'm going to be your little sister for the rest of your life, Kyon. [[MadnessMantra Forever and ever and ever...]]''
* In ''FanFic/TheMasksWeWear'' some of the interactions between the royal siblings are implicitly not of familial love.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' doujin ''[[http://www.mangatank.com/manga/touhou-at-chirei-doujinshi At Chirei]]'' portrays the main characters very much like a family, with sisters Satori and Koishi as the parents and Orin and Okuu as the children. Koishi closing her third eye and going to explore the surface is treated very much like a divorce, with the confused children caught in between, and twice Yuugi comforts a distraught Satori with what sounds very similar to relationship advice.
* In ''FanFic/SevenDaysInSunnyJune'' Due to NoSocialSkills human!Twilight Sparkle's innocent gestures of affection towards her foster sister Sunset Shimmer and her cousin Octavia Melody can ''very'' much be seen as this, up to the point where an innocent statement that Twily makes is ''clearly'' very, very wrong.
--->'''Sunset''': “You’re sleeping in here?”
--->'''Twilight''': “Great idea! It’s always better when sisters are together, right?”
--->'''Sunset and Octavia''' (simultaneously): “Twily, do you know where that comes from?”
--->'''Twilight''': “I heard some guys mention it at the mall the other day while we were in Spencer’s, why?”
--->'''Sunset''': “It’s the name of a series of pornos where sisters – um….”
--->'''Twilight''': “Ewwww! You guys are…. That’s ''gross''!”
--->'''Sunset''' (to Octavia): “She really doesn’t get out much, does she?”

[[folder:Films - Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'': Anyone familiar with clownfish biology is unlikely to avoid the creeps when watching it. Namely, and don't open the spoiler if you value your childhood, [[spoiler:only the alpha pair in a clownfish colony reproduce. What's more the only female is the alpha female: when it dies, the alpha male morphs into a female and the second-in-line male becomes the new alpha male and sires the new clownfish babies. In Finding Nemo, the rest of the family (colony) is destroyed: all that remains is Nemo's dad Marlin (now destined to become Nemo's ''mum''), and the only-other-male-of-the-colony Nemo, destined to become his new mum's reproductive partner. And when you think how small the colony was in the beginning... Nemo's actual mum might have been the brother or father of Marlin.]]
* If ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' was rewritten as a romantic love story between Anna and Elsa, very little would have to change. The whole film is about them repairing their relationship, Elsa hiding her powers can easily be read as an [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything allegorical coming-out story]], she has serious PowerIncontinence for the first time when Anna announces her engagement (when it's established this happens because of pain and fear), [[ShipperOnDeck the trolls']] song about how love is used to heal and help others (intended to be about to Kristoff) makes much more sense in reference to Elsa, the act of True Love that saves Anna from [[spoiler:being frozen]] is [[spoiler:her attempted HeroicSacrifice]] to save Elsa, and her "I love you" to Elsa is more romantic than any interaction she has with Hans ''or'' Kristoff. Hell, even [[http://yamino.tumblr.com/post/69413868245/ the merchandise]] ships it. Also, it's really common for these Disney movies to end with the princess kissing or embracing her lover, in Frozen, Anna [[spoiler: gives a quick and rather anti climax kiss to Kristoff and then goes to ice skate holding hands with Elsa, IntertwinedFingers and everything.]]
* There is some of this with Sally and Dr. Finklestein in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation possibly]]. In the DVDCommentary, Creator/TimBurton refers to Sally as a daughter -- yet there's lines in-film like "You're mine, you know!" and "You can make ''other'' creations!" that really doesn't sound like a rebellious-daughter/overprotective-dad relationship, but like something else entirely. Consider that the creation Dr. Finklestein makes to replace Sally looks awfully like a wife -- [[ScrewYourself that looks exactly like him]] -- and that an alternate ending had [[BigBad Oogie Boogie]] be [[TheManBehindTheCurtain Dr. Finklestein]], jealous that Sally chose Jack over him. In [[http://nightmarebeforechristmas.net/nightmare/script/2 an earlier script]], the father/daughter relationship was a lot more obvious with lines like "I'm grown up now. I'll have to leave sometime"... yet there are bits like ''The scientist smiles, feeling Sally under his sway again'' that sounds [[ParentalIncest rather creepy]].
* This trope creeps into ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' in an eerily interesting and [[{{Squick}} squicky]] way when you consider the song that the two siblings Fievel and Tanya sing to each other, "Somewhere Out There", was turned into a straight love song by Music/LindaRonstadt in an effort to make it a BreakAwayPopHit, and not a ''single word'' needed to be changed. (In real life, mice have no issue with incest, and seem more inclined to mate with members of their litter than they are with non-relatives.)
* Extremely prevalent in ''Westernanimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure''. It stops just short of being text, but the eponymous siblings share a love song ("Candy Hearts And Paper Flowers"), and they have a habit of hugging in ways not commonly seen between siblings.

[[folder:Films - Live Action]]
* The Two Charlies in ''Film/ShadowOfADoubt''. The Young Charlie tells her Uncle that they have a special bond, that they are soulmates if you will. After that point Uncle Charlie gives Young Charlie a wedding ring. When the relationship sours, Uncle Charlie tries to kill his niece [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything by choking her]].
* The Prentiss family in ''Film/Literature/TheManchurianCandidate''. (In the original novel the incest is quite explicitly mentioned.) The original film version showed a very possessive and not at all chaste kiss between Eleanor and her son Raymond, and the 2004 remake featured heavy subtext in every scene that showed them together, including some very ambiguous touching and kissing moments. In the novel, Raymond's mother had an incestuous relationship with her father. When [[spoiler:her brainwashed son is under her control she remarks how much he looks like her father and makes him do what she wants.]]
* ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'': Sharpay and Ryan Evans have a disturbingly close relationship. Their first duet is a love song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhbqA6JMBec rearranged]] to sound less romantic. When Troy and Gabriella sing it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h14LFxYEWg8 correctly]], it's clearly a love song. A joke is made at one point saying that if Sharpay could play both Romeo and Juliet, her brother would be out of a job, which means that [[IncestuousCasting the twins have no problem playing romantic roles with each other]]. The song "I Can't Keep My Eyes Off of You" (never made it to the movie -- it only appears on the first CD) is a quartet with duets between "Troy" and "Gabriella" and then "Sharpay" and "Ryan" (with only a few parts being the four singing together). The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSBoARL2N3g video]] includes a few moments from the movie put in shippy context.
* ''Film/HouseOfWax2005'' is filled with the [[{{Twincest}} twincesty]] subtext between Nick and Carly. Obvious from a mile away.
* Many ''Franchise/StarWars'' fans noticed Princess Leia Organa's later claim, that she had "always known" that Luke Skywalker is her brother. Even when she was making out with him?
* At the end of ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', River is shown watching curiously from an air vent as Kaylee and Simon have sex.
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. In the beginning of the third film, there is this scene where Lucy sees a girl flirting with a boy, then she does the exact same gesture that girl did... in front of Edmund. This results in him frowning confused and asking her what she's doing, to which she widens her eyes and blurts 'nothing' guiltily, giving the impression that [[AccidentalInnuendo she actually tried to flirt with him]] for a moment. (The explanation is given later.) When Edmund is tempted by evil again, he stares hungrily at Lucy and attempts to lure her [[WeCanRuleTogether into becoming rich and powerful along with him]], clearly showing that she's ''the only person'' he wants beside him when he plans to obtain power, with lines like "Lucy...we'd be so rich, no one could tell us what to do...or who to live with". It's even funnier knowing that Georgie Henley (who played Lucy) really did have a huge crush on Skander Keynes (who played Edmund). Of course, they aren't related in real life.
* ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'': Prince Nuada seems to have a lot of sexual tension going with his sister Princess Nuala. It's particularly evident in the scene where Nuada learns of the attraction between Abe and Nuala; Nuada's reaction is more like that of a jealous lover than a brother defending his sister's honor. The presence of implied incest was confirmed [[http://www.superherohype.com/news/featuresnews.php?id=6740 by Nuada's actor]].
* In the French-Canadian movie ''Film/{{CRAZY}}'', the tension between the main character Zac and his older brother Raymond can be interpreted as to being of a sexual nature. It's strongly implied that Zac, well, takes pleasure out of seeing his brother having sex with different girls in multiple occasions. It's clear that Zac is, indeed, gay, and Raymond teases Zac by proposing to give him a blowjob.
* ''Film/GingerSnaps''. Specifically, when [[spoiler:Ginger]] is heading towards full transformation, she crawls over to and on top of her sister and whispers "It's like we're not even related anymore..."
* The [[spoiler:first]] love interest in ''Film/LeSamourai'' was cast because she looked like she could be the sister of Alain Delon, and Melville wanted that sort of awkwardness in their relationship. Made even more bizarre because she was Delon's real-life wife.
* ''Film/HarryPotter''
** In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' there's a moment where Bellatrix gets a little too close to her nephew, Draco, whispering in his ear and kissing his shoulder. He looks hilariously creeped out. In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' she grabs his hand and drags him forward, saying something like "come closer, sweetie".
** Also in ''Deathly Hallows'', just before that moment [[MemeticMolester Lucius]] stands ''waaaay'' too close to Draco and strokes his neck for the whole scene.
* Charlie tries this in ''Film/MysteryTeam''. It doesn't work.
* ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian2011''. DaddysLittleVillain tells her father (who is seeking to resurrect his dead wife) that she can do everything her mother could -- she's referring to her magic powers, but there's a clear sexual vibe as well. It's only subtext until he cradles her face in his hand and she [[GRatedSex starts sucking on his thumb]]. At that point it becomes damn clear that she would be happy substituting for her mother in every possible way. [[EvenEvilHasStandards He winds up rejecting the offer.]]
* The 1992 French movie ''L'Amant'' (''Film/TheLover'', adapted from the eponymous novel by Marguerite Duras). The female protagonist has a sexual vibe with her younger brother -- the sight of the two of them dancing closely is enough to drive the titular character to a jealous fury.
* ''Film/AllThatJazz'' flaunts this trope so flagrantly. Joel Gideon is a ceaseless womaniser and his daughter is a blossomingly beautiful young lady. In more than one scene she deliberately makes him feel awkward by talking about sex. The scene where they dance together shows how comfortable they are with each others' bodies in a ''non-sexual'' capacity. By placing the ideas of "family" "dancing" and "sexuality" in our minds the film highlights how un-confused the issues are in the minds of the characters. Dancing is not sex, dancing is dancing.
* in ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman'', [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Ravenna]]'s relationship with her brother Finn flirts with incest several times. Especially when Ravenna bathes in front of him and, later, he gives her a not-so-brotherly kiss on the shoulder.
* Between Claudia and her brother Gustav in ''Film/SnowWhiteATaleOfTerror''. She kisses him at one point, though he's rather terrified. It's also clear Frederich saw his late wife when he danced with Lilli. So does Claudia.
* In the French movie ''Les mariés de l'an [=II=]'', Jean-Paul Belmondo plays a Frenchman from Nantes who is trying to get a divorce from his wife at the height of the Reign of Terror. In the course of the resultant misadventures, the two spouses for a time hook up with other partners, the wife with an aristocrat leading a group of royalist guerilla fighters in the Vendée and the husband with that aristocrat's sister (who is also her brother's comrade in arms). When they find out, it is not just the husband and wife who become very jealous of each other, but also the brother and the sister. In the end the new pairs break up and the aristocratic siblings ride off together, remarking on how one won't let the other have a romantic partner and how they are both doomed...
* Calvin Candie and his sister in ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' seem a little too close for comfort, and neither has a significant other that's mentioned in the film, although Candie states that his sister is a widow.
* In ''Film/ScannersIIITheTakeover'', there is a bit present between Helena and Dr. Monet, her adoptive father. After she goes insane, he confronts her while she's nude in a hot tub. She accuses him of adopting her because he just wanted a girl all to himself, and then [[spoiler:uses her psychic powers to drown him.]]
* While [[Literature/FlowersInTheAttic the book]] had no shame about portraying actual incest, the ''Film/FlowersInTheAttic'' film relegates the BrotherSisterIncest to subtext at best. Also there is the scene with the father giving Cathy her music box when she's alone in her bed, topped off with giving her a ring in a posture that looks very like a proposal.
* This is brought up in ''On a Clear Day You Can See Forever''. Todd Pringle points out that, since he is just as much in love with Daisy as Doctor Chabot is, perhaps he (Todd) might make a suitable match for her. When Dr. Chabot points out that Todd is Daisy's brother, Todd responds with, "Only by marriage... she's my step-sister, not my blood-sister."
* ''Film/VerticalLimit'' has a plot of Peter climbing K2 to save his younger sister Annie. If you took all the references to their father out of the script, it would come across as a romance instead. This trope is probably the reason Peter gets a kiss out of nowhere from the only other female in the film.
* ''Film/{{Shame}}'' is about a man named Brandon with an extreme sex addiction, who is either viewing porn, looking for sex, jerking off, or indeed doing the deed. He lives with his sister Sissy, and while they don't have sex in the film, they have a pretty close relationship that hints at an unspoken trauma between them. Notably, their first scene together has Brandon accidentally walk in on her taking a shower, and she seems more angry about him disrupting her privacy rather than him ''seeing her naked'', even throwing her towel at him! Later on she starts dating someone and Brandon seems ''unusually'' protective of her when that occurs.
* [[Film/BlazingSaddles When all the citizens of an isolated town all share the same last name]] ''something'' isn't right.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'': Violet and Klaus. TheFilmOfTheBook ''does'' sport a bit of chemistry.
* Lampshaded, [[FauxYay deliberately played up]], and generally mocked in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. [[spoiler:Harry and Thomas]] live together for quite a while, and are often MistakenForGay by the (many) people who don't know they're half-brothers. This is made even worse by [[spoiler:Thomas]]'s sense of humor and the fact that [[spoiler:he's a [[{{Incubus}} White Court vampire]], so [[EvenTheGuysWantHim even straight guys are attracted to him]].]] Much of the humor is basically QueerPeopleAreFunny, so it sometimes came across as rather homophobic.
* ''TheVampireChronicles'' has Lestat and his mother Gabrielle. Lestat is clearly Gabrielle's favorite, she even refers to him as the male part of her. The first person Lestat [[KissOfTheVampire turns into a vampire]] is Gabrielle, and during their time as vampire companions Lestat referred to them as lovers.
* In ''Literature/TheOutsiders'', the Curtis brothers have so much of this going on, it's incredible. Ponyboy describes Sodapop as 'looking like a movie star', and they also sleep in the same bed with much cuddling and even late night talks about love. There's also the way Ponyboy describes his brothers' relationship can be really reminiscent of a couple of teenage parents. And we should not forget that scene when Soda is giving Darry a back massage.
* ''Literature/SplinterOfTheMindsEye'' is a Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse novel written after ''Film/ANewHope'', but before Luke and Leia were known to be twins. And Han Solo is nowhere to be seen. Consequently, there is an ''amazing'' degree of {{UST}} in the book, though Luke nobly refrains from [[DudeShesLikeInAComa kissing Leia while she's asleep]] and vows to protect her from everything, including himself.
--> The Princess [[TakeMyHand caught him with a hand, her weight halting his slide]]. Now Luke rolled clear, came to a panting stop on her chest.
--> For a long moment they lay like that, suspended in time. Then their eyes met with a gaze that could have penetrated light-years.
** The comic book adaptation - which came out ''after'' ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' - doesn't have nearly as much subtext, since it has much less in the way of narration. But the twins hold or touch each other often, and when Luke thinks he's dying he tells her he loves her.
** The idea that she'd 'always known' throws this line into a new light.
--> The Princess grew aware of how tightly she was clinging to him. Their proximity engendered a wash of confused emotion. It would be proper to disengage, to move away a little. Proper, [[ButIWouldReallyEnjoyIt but not nearly so satisfying]].
* Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost of ''Literature/WarriorCats'', who are half-brothers. Brambleclaw chose to trust Hawkfrost '''over''' Squirrelflight, his LoveInterest, and trusted Hawkfrost completely up until he tried to make him kill his leader. Even though it was hinted at that Hawkfrost was evil.
* While ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has quite a lot of explicit and confirmed incest between certain characters, there are also certain points which fit this trope.
** During one of Arianne Martell's POV chapters, she remembers that when she was younger (though we don't know exactly how young) she was travelling through the desert with her uncle Oberyn and her cousins, and she daydreamed about a desert bandit kidnapping her and having his way with her. Judging from the description of the bandit, she imagined him looking a lot like her uncle Oberyn. She feels very uncomfortable about remembering this, so she is clearly aware of what such a daydream implies.
*** Arianne attempts to invoke this trope by dressing in a revealing outfit when expecting to have a confrontation with her father to make the situation really awkard for him.
** Aeron "Damphair" Greyjoy has a deep-seated hatred and terror of his brother Euron, and associates him with the scream of a rusted hinge, and memories of waking up in the night and thinking "Euron has come again". Though it is not stated explicitly, one can assume that he was sexually abused by his brother.
** When Victarion Greyjoy and his niece Asha are arguing over who might rule the ironborn, she offers to help him rule as his Hand of the King. Since this is not a tradition of the ironborn, Victarion at first thinks that when she talks of "ruling beside him" she means being his queen. He finds himself getting aroused at the thought before reminding himself that she is his niece.
** Teased with Asha and Theon, when he first arrives at Pyke. They go on a horseback ride together and there is a lot of fondling going on and she even grabs his erection a few times. This was done deliberately by Asha posing as a shipwright's wife named Esgred in order to find out his plans. When Theon finds out who she really is, Theon is incredibly disturbed.
** Though they are not related by blood, Littlefinger is [[spoiler: Sansa Stark]]'s uncle through marriage, and it is very clear to her and the reader that he is sexually interested in her. Not only is he legally her uncle, but she is currently pretending to be his daughter, and addresses him as "father".
** When Tyrion is confronting his sister, Cersei, about her {{Twincest}}uous relationship with Jaime, he says that it "seems unfair that she should open her legs for one brother and not the other". While he was clearly trying to enrage and mock her, if he had been aware of their incest while growing up with them, it would make sense that his own sexuality might be affected by it. While he is [[spoiler:planning his revenge on his family from exile]] he mentions that he wants to rape and murder his sister. While he would be quite happy to kill her, it is unknown if he7was being serious about raping her, and even if he was, it would probably be from a wish to hurt and degrade her as much as possible rather than from any true sexual desire.
*** When Cersei's paranoia gets ''really'' bad she's prone to nightmares which often feature Tyrion in disturbingly sexual situations.
*** When Cersei has taken Tyrion's mistress [[spoiler:(she thinks)]] as a hostage, and Tyrion has her youngest son under his own control, he tries to ensure the woman's safety by saying that whatever happens to her would happen to his nephew, including any beating or rapes (though it is made indisputably clear to the reader that this is just a bluff rather than a serious threat, not least because Tyrion actually likes his youngest nephew).
** In the fourth book it's implied that [[TheSociopath Joffrey]] may have abused his younger brother [[ChildrenAreInnocent Tommen]] in a sexual way. He gets interrupted before he gets to say more about it.
* In the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'' series, there's plenty of in-story subtext between Jamie and her brother Torisen, to the point that characters comment on it. One fan theory is that their mother Jamiethiel had the power to deliberately get pregnant with twins, and literally made Torisen as the perfect mate for Jamie, so she would become blood-bound to him before her uncle Gerridon could claim her.
* The relationship between brother and sister Quentin and Caddy in ''TheSoundAndTheFury''. Quentin is obsessed with his sister's virginity and purity. At one point he lies and claims to have committed incest with Caddy and be the father of her illegitimate child in order to shoulder the blame with her. He later [[spoiler: commits suicide due to his heartbreak over Caddy not being pure. Caddy names her daughter after him]].
* While ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' has quite a lot of [[BrotherSisterIncest actual incest]] going on, some things are still relegated to subtext. There are hints here and there that Christopher is sexually attracted to, or at least very confused by, his mother.
* In ''Graceling'', Katsa and Raffin, cousins, have quite a bit of this going on. They are extremely close, call each other things like "My Dear" and had even once considered getting married, but didn't for reasons having nothing to do with being related.
* In Charlaine Harris' ''Harper Connelly'' series she and her step-brother Tolliver get intensely jealous of each others lovers, none of whom are ever more than brief flings, frequently share hotel rooms and when they don't always make sure to have connecting rooms. They are slowly raising money to buy a house and neither of them ever considers not living together in it. [[spoiler: In the second book when Harper finds herself thinking about having kids and realizes that she can't imagine them being raised by anyone but Tolliver she realizes her feelings for him and it nearly destroys her]]
* [[NotBloodSiblings August and Scarlet]] from ''Literature/OfFearAndFaith''. With August, it's made clear that he is attracted to her, although he hates himself for it and tries to suppress it. Scarlet's a little more ambiguous. She's very flirty and teasing with him, although this could just be a part of her personality (she flirts with Kavik immediately after meeting him as well) and she clearly enjoys making August uncomfortable. August also mentions that Scarlet flirted with him when they were kids, so make of that what you will.
* Josh and Sophie Newman in ''TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel'', especially as the series progresses. Though in the final book [[spoiler: it's revealed they aren't actually related]].
* Cassie in ''Literature/TheIntruders'' behaves very hostile towards her mother Amanda's new fiancée. She doesn't much like his sons either but her behaviour towards him seems more like jealousy. Her brother Joel says a curiously worded line about Cassie not wanting to "share" their mother.
* Catherine and Heathcliff (adopted siblings) in ''Literature/WutheringHeights''.
* In ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'', Dr. Frankenstein's parents adopted a little girl, Elizabeth, as a present for him. He refers to her as his "more than sister". When he goes crazy, she suspects it may be because he's fallen in love with someone else and doesn't want to upset their parents by not marrying Elizabeth. In other words, the parents raised two children to be romantically attracted to each other.
* In ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}'' by Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt, Edvard has sexual fantasies about his cousin Beatrice. But luckily for her, as he's a serial abuser [[TheSociopath sociopath]], he never acts on these fantasies.
* In ''[[Literature/{{Dune}} Children of Dune]]'' royal twins Leto and Ghanima use their GeneticMemory to roleplay as their parents, but they find the idea of their actually mating repellent. Though there are rumors that the Bene Gesseritt intend for them to mate with each other as part of their eugenics program.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* The relationship between Justin and Alex (Jalex) on ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' is filled with lots of subtext. By the time TheMovie aired, everyone including the writers knew about the pairing and ensuing fandom, so the subtext from TheMovie onwards is [[ShipTease ship teasing]] and put there by the writers. It got to the point where some ExecutiveMeddling occurred to reduce the amount of Jalex scenes and plots in a later season. It didn't help that the actors for Justin and Alex have been very very cuddly with each other at times, including New Years kisses. Then there's the episode where everyone's memories of Justin being related to Alex is erased, which among other things results in their ''mother'' saying they'd make a good couple.
-->'''Theresa:''' Justin is a great catch. You should go out with him.\\
'''Alex:''' [[{{Squick}} Eww, gross.]]\\
'''Theresa:''' That's exactly how I felt about your father when I first met him and, now, he's my big cuddly bug!\\
'''Alex:''' Eww, grosser.
* The Carly/Spencer (Sparly) pairing in ''Series/ICarly'' has some similar moments, especially in the first couple seasons.
* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' has Bud and Kelly. Bud always rags on her skankiness, Kelly has many comments about his sex life (she seems to be jealous of his blow-up doll). She enjoys when he acknowledges her hotness or achievements. "If you weren't my brother..." Kelly comments after Bud does something really nice. In one episode, she seductively leaves lipstick marked kisses on him. Together they create the Bundy Bounce and she has him drooling. A date (Corey Feldman) disses Kelly cause she won't put out, so Bud purposely gives him the measles. Kelly ''cruelly'' gets revenge for Bud on a girl who humiliated him. When Bud discovered Kelly's knack for counting cards while in a Vegas casino, he got down on one knee right there and shouted, "Marry me! Damn the law!"
* ''Series/SeventhHeaven''
** In the pilot episode Mary asks her brother Matt to help her practice kissing. Their father walks in on them before anything happens. Reportedly, the script actually called for them to kiss, but Jessica Biel and Barry Watson refused to do it.
** The seven siblings all had active, obsessive interests in the sex lives of their brothers and sisters.
** In the episode in which Lucy gives birth, brother Matt takes her shopping and the store employees assume they are married. Rather than say "He's my brother," Lucy replies that they are not married, leaving the store employees to assume they have a sexual relationship. While in labor in a stuck elevator, Lucy insists on Matt (in training to be an OBGYN) be the one to deliver her baby even though there are trained, non-related paramedics in the elevator.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVCB2D7Da9E This infamous scene]], when Ruthie is "dancing" in her room, and the dad comes up. The entire scene - particularly when Ruthie sees her dad watching, and smiles at him in a very un-daughter-like fashion - isn't just GettingCrapPastTheRadar, it's sending a baby nuke to hit the mountain where the radar site is operating.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}''
** The Petrelli brothers. The amount of subtext between Nathan and Peter made Petrellicest the most popular slash pairing in the fandom.
** Peter and Claire had the most sexual tension and chemistry out of any two on the show. Too bad they made them Uncle and Niece. Although this did not stop them from dating in [[CastIncest real life]].
** There is sort of an aversion with [[spoiler:Sylar and Angela. Sylar gets captured at Primatech and while he's drugged out, Angela creepily touches him and then tells him that she's his mother. But it turns out that Angela was lying and that they were not actually related at all, making the Sylar/Angela subtext into just regular creepy subtext.]]
* ''Series/{{Numb3rs}}'': Don and Charlie.
* All of the sisters in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' get a ''load'' of this. They spend a lot of time holding hands and saying how much they love each other. Also, Phoebe taught Prue french kissing apparently, and Piper and Prue had a lot of married-couple type habits from all the years they've spent living together.
* In the ''{{Victorious}}'' episode "Birthweek Song", Tori's present to her sister Trina is a hot song-and-dance number which includes her sitting on her sister's lap. Whilst wearing an extremely short sparkly cocktail dress.
* In the ''Series/{{Degrassi}}: TNG'' movie thing where Fiona, Declan, Holly J and Jane go to New York, Fiona gets so jealous of her Declan's relationship with Holly J that she [[spoiler:full on kisses Declan on the lips]]. Though that was partially a rash decision Fiona did while she was drunk.
* ''Franchise/KamenRider''
** ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'' has a lot of ShipTease between Tendou and Hiyori, although [[spoiler:Hiyori is a Worm so they're not blood-related, but she's mimicking the girl who would have been his sister]]. Even [[spoiler:Tendou's dark self]]'s existence revolved around her while [[spoiler:again, they're technically not blood-related: Dark Tendou is also a Worm, but he is a mimic of ''Tendou'']]. Early on in the show before TheReveal, some of the characters, like the owner of Bistro La Salle and Juka, refer them as boyfriend and girlfriend. Tendou doesn't deny this. Hilariously, Sean Wiig, the actor of Tendou's child self, [[http://seancave.blogspot.com/2009/04/sean-as-seen-on-tv.html even believed that Tendou and Hiyori were dating]].
** ShipTease involving siblings (and, in one case, an uncle and niece) is very common in Heisei-era Kamen Rider series. Prominent examples are Taiga and Wataru in ''[[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kiva]]'', Ryotaro and [[spoiler:Hana]] in ''[[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O]]'', Maki and his sister ''and'' Hina and Ankh (who is possessing her brother's body) in ''[[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]'', and Philip and Wakana in ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]]''.
* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'': Reese kissing Malcolm, saying he wants them to be together forever, and getting jealous over Malcolm's relationship with Stevie.
* ''Franchise/{{Buffyverse}}''
** Buffy seems overly physically affectionate when it comes to Dawn. The way she kisses Dawn in "The Gift" is very much ''not'' sisterly, which Joss jokes about in the commentary. One episode draws explicit parallels between Buffy/Dawn and Willow/Tara.
-->'''Willow:''' I have to look after [Tara]. She's my girl.
-->'''Buffy:''' ''(stroking Dawn's hair)'' I know what you mean.
** And in "Intervention":
-->'''Buffy:''' I love you, Dawn. You know that, right?
-->'''Dawn:''' Yeah. I love you too.
-->'''Buffy:''' I love you ... ''really'' love you.
-->'''Dawn:''' ''(nervous grin)'' Gettin' weird.
-->'''Buffy:''' Sorry. But it's important that I tell you. Weird love's better than no love.
** Dawn also shows signs of this with her mother substitutes Willow and Tara. She wants them to teach her the stuff they do together, and is promptly told to go to her room. In another episode, Willow is perving on a girl dancing, to discover it was Dawn.
** Spike's relationship with his mother (whom he sired so they could be together forever) is called out explicitly as incestuous desire.
** Crossing over to ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Drusilla has sex with Angel several times and frequently calls him "daddy" (because he sired her) and she also calls Darla "grandmother", whom she shares a lot of LesYay with.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}''
** Half-sisters Morgana and Morgause. Their secret meetings can be seen as not unlike secret lovers having an affair. Acording to WordOfGod, it was intentional - Morgause was meant to stand as Morgana's love interest. Although, due to the revelation of [[spoiler:Morgana being Uther's daughter,]] we can't be sure if Morgana and Morgause are actually related any more. They certainly seem to consider themselves sisters, though.
** Due to aforementioned revelation, [[spoiler:Morgana and Arthur's season one ShipTease]] retroactively counts as this.
* In ''ShakeItUp'' there's a line where Tinka tells her brother Gunther (who's her dance partner) they can't get married. He looks heartbroken.
* [[HoYay/{{Supernatural}} Sam and Dean]] in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. This is joked about several times; in "The Monster at the End of This Book", Sam and Dean discover a series of novels detailing their exploits has accumulated a fandom, including in-universe Sam/Dean shippers. In the episode "The Real Ghostbusters", the two guys {{Cosplay}}ing as Sam and Dean turn out to be a couple. There's a few episodes where the brothers get confused for gay lovers, and Sam and Dean don't always correct the mistake.
** It can go way beyond that. The brothers have an extremely close and not at all normal brotherly relationship that includes a serious lack of personal space, sharing a room for most of the series, being completely inseparable and acting like a broken-up couple when they are apart for any length of time, a lot of danger-related touchy-feeliness, emotional declarations of devotion, tearful stares and glances, jealousy whenever anyone else gets close to either brother, a perturbing level of comfort seeing each other naked or discussing sex (when Dean drops his pants in "Sam Interrupted," Sam doesn't react beyond raising his eyebrows and looking mildly surprised), hints that they wanted to grow old together, a mock "wedding" in which they stand at an altar and both declare that no one else is more important to either of them than each other, and total insanity whenever one brother believes the other has died. Dean is extremely protective and possessive of Sam, and Sam has given up pretty well everything he's ever dreamed of for Dean and tends to go bonkers whenever he thinks Dean might reject him.
** Moreover, by later seasons they brothers are often paralleled to (and compare themselves to) romantic and married couples, such as Amelia and Don in Season 8.
* All ''over'' ''Series/TheBorgias'', but well, there's [[RealLifeWritesThePlot a reason for that]]. There's [[BigBrotherAttraction Cesare/Lucrezia]], where Lucrezia claims she'll never love a husband the way she loves Cesare, and where Cesare promises to cut her husband's heart out with a dinner knife; as of Season 3 Episode 3 [[spoiler:Lucrezia and Cesare have explicitly consummated their subtext]]. There's [[MommasBoy Vannozza/Cesare]], who spend the most time together of the parents/children and whom Cesare brings to Lucrezia's wedding despite his father's wishes. There's [[FoeYay Cesare/Juan]], with Juan getting the life Cesare wants and Cesare reluctantly cleaning up his brother's mistakes. And there's [[DaddysGirl Rodrigo/Lucrezia]], with their cuddling and kissing and the way Lucrezia clearly has her father wrapped around her little finger.
* In ''Series/TheWaltons'', there were a few instances when John-Boy (the eldest son and narrator) and his mother, Olivia seemed to share more than just parent-child closeness. One notable example is the birthday episode when he reads a poem to her, a love poem nonetheless. They interact more like a couple during that scene than a mother and son.
* This is played for laughs quite a bit on ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''.
** Buster very clearly has some kind of Oedipus Complex, and is too much of a ManChild to stop himself from saying things that very heavily hint at it. Whenever he gets into an actual relationship, he treats it the same way he does his relationship with Lucille.
--> '''Buster''': "Sister's my new mother, Mother. And is it just me, or has she gotten hotter?"
** Lindsay, when she finds out [[spoiler: she's adopted]], is convinced that Michael has always harbored a crush on her.
** George Michael has a not-altogether unrequited crush on Maeby, his cousin... Maybe.
** Maeby and [[spoiler:Steve Holt]] fool around in Season 3, though she calls it off after discovering they're related.
* In ''CoronationStreet'' Julie and Jason get drunk and spend a night on the couch together. When Julie's mother Paula finds out about this she is horrified...and drops the bombshell that Jason and Julie are actually related as Paula had sex with Jason's grandfather when she was fourteen and got pregnant with Julie. It's then quickly revealed that Jason and Julie didn't actually sleep together.
* In ''TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'', there's a ''lot'' of incestuous subtext between Christine and her brother Matthew. There was even a scene in which [[spoiler:Christine made out with him though it turned out to be a dream.]]
* ''Series/{{Friends}}''
** This is a plot point in the episode "The One with the Inappropriate Sister". Rachel's date Danny seems to just be extremely close to his sister, until at the coffee house when he licks icing from her fingers, then she drops it on his pants and wipes it off, then they go upstairs to change pants. When Rachel finally goes to break up with him, Danny and his sister are about to take a bath together.
** Another episode has a cousin of Ross and Monica played by Denise Richards that is so stunningly beautiful that Ross forgets he's related to her and makes a pass at her. That's probably why she isn't seen at the wedding.
** Siblings Ross and Monica have no problem hugging or holding hands. Indeed, there is a scene where the dialogue between the two is so loving that Phoebe teases by suggesting to them go to a hotel room.
* On ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', Troian Bellisario appears in two episodes. In the first, "Red Cell" in season 2, [=DiNozzo=] and Todd go to [=McGee=]'s apartment to bring him in to work early for a meeting, and spend several minutes making fun of him for being a nerd; after they leave, Bellisario walks out of [=McGee=]'s bedroom in her pajamas and takes over the computer game [=McGee=] had been playing. The joke being that, unbeknownst to Todd and [=DiNozzo=], [=McGee=] had gotten this gorgeous woman into bed the night before. Then, in the season four episode "Twisted Sister," it is revealed that Bellisario's character is actually [=McGee=]'s sister. And, to add just one more interesting wrinkle, the executive producer of NCIS? Donald Bellisario. And Sean Murray, [=McGee=]'s actor is Bellisario's stepson. Making them step siblings in real life.
* In the ''{{Sanctuary}}'' episode "Nubbins", Henry is clearly thinking of other things when Ashley asks him if "he's had a chance to check out her Nubbins," and again when she says "Don't you just want to squeeze them?" While they aren't biologically related, they ''were'' raised by the same woman in the same household, making them adopted siblings.
* Similar to the "purity balls" example, an episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' involves a girl who made a celibacy pledge getting pregnant and being terrified that her father would kick her out if he found out. When dad eventually accepts that it was consensual sex (he VERY strongly wanted to believe she was raped so she wouldn't have broken her pledge), he says that she betrayed him, leaving some icky implications, though it's pretty clear that he never actually abused her.
* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' always had something between Greg and Marcia, which is made obvious in the movie.
* ''Ben and Kate'' is a show about a brother moving in with his single-parent sister to help her raise her daughter, so this was inevitable. They are sometimes mistaken for a married couple in the show as well.
* In the CW show ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Oliver and his sister Thea. There is an inordinate amount of chemistry between the actors; reportedly they'd met each other prior to the series starting and developed a playful friendship. She starts off rather cold towards him when he returns but warms up upon learning the full details of his experience; the exact same story and dynamic is what they use for Laurel in the show, his ''actual'' love interest.
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Richard Castle and his daughter Alexis are extremely close, largely due to his raising her by himself but sometimes it seems to go beyond this. One episode opens with her sitting on his lap which is fine for a little girl but she's college age. The same episode has a scene where he talks to her about the breakup of her long distance relationship and asks "Does this make you feel any better?" She says "No, but this does." and proceeds to cuddle with him. Another episode, which takes place at a science-fiction convention has him see her in a ''very'' skimpy cosplay outfit. After confronting her about it he walks away saying "I can't ''unsee'' that!" Later on they have an awkward scene together in which they agree not to discuss the matter, the implication being that it might bring up feelings neither wants to acknowledge.
* Twins Dennis and Dee Reynolds in ''{{Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia}}'' have no problem playing love interests in Charlie's "Dayman" play. Charlie initially cast Dennis as the villain to avoid the incestuous implications, but Dennis wanted to play the hero instead and had no problem with the fact that his sister played the love interest. In addition, during the episode "Frank's Back in Business," the siblings along with Mac discover that a patron has left his wallet at the bar, leading Dennis to assume the patron's identity. When they show up to a baseball game via the tickets in the wallet and that person's associates assume that Dennis is the patron and Dee is his wife, the two have no problems playing along with this ruse. Dennis even states that he "gets off" while pretending to be another person, and when Dee questions the ruse, he asks Dee if she wants to "get off" with him.
* In the American adaptation of the show ''{{Shameless}}'', siblings Fiona and Phillip essentially end up as the father and mother figures of their four younger siblings, being that their mother has been gone for some time and they eventually kick their deadbeat father out of the house. Although each has a respective love interest, Fiona loses interest in hers and is heavily disapproving of Phillip's love interest in what could easily be interpreted as jealousy.
* ''{{Skins}}'' did this with both [[BrotherSisterIncest Tony and Effy]] in the first generation, and [[{{Twincest}} the Fitch twins]] in the second. At least the second example seems to be mostly one-directional from Katie to Emily; with the former, it comes off as an actual RelationshipWritingFumble on the part of the writers.
* On ''Series/OnceUponATime'', [[ParentalIncest Cora and Regina's relationship]] has some seriously incestuous undertones, especially on Cora's part. Cora murders her daughter Regina's fiancée, Daniel, and then marries Regina off to King Leopold, who is still pining for his dead wife Eva, after manipulating the situation so that Regina places the blame for Daniel's death on Leopold's daughter, Snow. Thus, Regina will be trapped in a loveless marriage with no source of comfort but Mommy Dearest. After Regina banishes Cora to Wonderland and later sends Captain Hook to assassinate her, Cora prepares to return the favor until she hears Regina's tearful confession of love (which itself sounds like a monologue to a lover and not a parent) made over Cora's coffin. Cora thus goes into hiding and decides to allow her daughter to cast the Dark Curse, even though she ''knows'' that it will not bring Regina the happiness that she so desperately seeks, and will instead cause her to lose everything, because "then she'll need me... And me, I'll help her pick up the pieces." Also, upon arriving in Storybrooke, Cora breaks into Regina's home and actually ''sniffs her clothing''. Once she and Regina reunite, she's also kind of creepily physical with her as well.
* In ''Series/BatesMotel'', (a prequel to the first film version of ''Film/Psycho'') there is quite a bit of... affection and tension between the teenaged Norman Bates and his mother Norma. Well, a boy's best friend ''is'' his mother, after all...
* ''Series/HopeAndFaith'' has the titular two sisters being involved in a couple of moments. One episode has Faith pretend she and Hope are a lesbian couple. And another implies that Hope gave Faith a complete spray tan - this is given a Squicky reaction from Hope's husband.
* In ''Series/{{Eureka}}'', Jack Carter and his daughter Zoe have a... strange relationship. Many of their scenes are shot and written like a couple squabbling, then reconciling later. [[MostImportantPerson It's repeatedly established]] that Jack cares more for her than [[PlatonicLifePartners Jo]], [[HeterosexualLifePartners Henry]], and even [[WillTheyOrWontThey Alison]] by a huge margin, risking his life for her over and over again, while being immensely controlling and restricting about her love life. For her part Zoe also values him more than anyone else, always going to him in times of crisis. It's worth mentioning that Jack's ex-wife (Zoe's mother) looks very similar to Jack's sister.
* In ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', Simon and River's relationship is greatly textured, mixing sibling, parent, doctor, and lover roles with the necessary abandon. Simon and his mei-mei are all each other have in the world. And when River's upset or sick, it's her brother's bed she curls up in. She also had a FatherIWantToMarryMyBrother moment in a deleted scene.
-->Simon: It's just not something brothers and sisters do. I mean, on some planets... but only pretty bad ones.
* In ''Series/FakingIt'' twins Pieter and Petra seem far more interested in each other than in Shane and Liam who are trying to pick them up. Shane is shocked to see them holding hands while flirting with him and Liam, Petra agrees to take Liam home but only if he dresses in her brothers clothes and when Shane and Liam leave the twins seem relieved.
* In ''Almost Royal'' the two main characters, who are brother and sister keep referring to each other as "friends with benefits" to their handler's annoyance. The only reason it's subtext is that being both British and rather dim-witted they may not realize what it means in American terms. Maybe.
-->'''Poppy:''' We're close\\
'''Handler:''' You're not that close\\
'''Poppy:''' We are.

[[folder:Music]]
* Many of the great love-ballads of the 1970's were duets performed by the brother/sister duo The Carpenters. Richard did not get along with Karen's husband (who she was in the process of divorcing when she died), and Richard didn't get married until after Karen died.
* Liam and Noel Gallagher of Music/{{Oasis}} had this in spades. The most obvious example being the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/848432044_7019.jpg kiss]] at Loch Lomond in 1996. Yes, there was tongue slippage.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Accidentally invoked in {{Doonesbury}} in July 2012 as Jeff and Zipper followed Alex's updates on Facebook about her honeymoon with Leo. Jeff made several comments such as "That could have been me standing next to her" and "Too bad Alex is with Leo instead of me." Unfortunately, it should have been Zipper making those comments, as he was the one with the longtime crush on Alex; Jeff is Alex's half-uncle (his older half-sister is Alex's mother). Cartoonist Garry Trudeau later explained on his website that he had "inadvertently mixed up the two boys during the course of the week. ... Apologies to the many horrified, genealogically astute readers who noticed."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* Kayfabe siblings Paul Burchill and Katie Lea debuted a controversial angle in 2008 that implied incest between the two of them, with Katie calling Paul "beautiful" and talking about how she enjoys watching him inflict pain. Paul's CatchPhrase would then be "whatever Katie wants, Katie always gets". WWE just happened to be going PG that year so the incest part of their pairing was dropped before anything big happened.
* This was one of the original plans for the Sable/Tori feud back in 1999 where Tori was going to be revealed to be Sable's sister, making the stalking that little more creepy. They scrapped that idea and just made Tori an obsessed fan instead.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''DungeonsAndDragons'' continuity, the co-rulers of the fourth layer of Hell are Belial and his daughter Fierna. Both are embodiments of {{Lust}}, and it is rumored that they have an incestuous relationship.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* It's not in the original play, but ''RomeoEtJulietteDeLaHaineALamour'' has Tybalt in love with his cousin Juliette as well. The DarkerAndEdgier Hungarian adaptation expands on this by having him ''also'' suffer from severe UST with his aunt Lady Capulet. (And from epilepsy. He's troubled.)
* A production of ''Don Pasquale'' where Norina and Malatesta gave off some... interesting vibes while going over their plan for her to trick the eponymous don. He does seem ''very'' enthusiastic in teaching her to seduce men, and refers to her affectionately as a "little vixen" at one point. (It helped that both the actors were friends in real life.)
* Rampant in ''Theatre/{{Electra}}''. Electra's relationship to her dead father is slightly [[DeceasedParentsAreTheBest unhealthy]] and has some incestuous undertones. Her relationship to her brother is ''all'' [[{{Subtext}} undertones]]. (In Freudian psychology, the female equivalent to the Oedipus complex is called the "Elektra complex". The more you know.)
* ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''
** Many productions [[PlayedForDrama emphasize the highly-charged, ultra-possessive relationship]] between Hamlet and Gertrude. Partially Justified in that Hamlet [[WellDoneSonGuy is trying to live up to his father's image]].
** Some productions imply a similar relationship between Ophelia and Laertes, possibly to emphasize his role as a {{Foil}} to Hamlet.
* Like Theatre/{{Hamlet}}, Gabe of ''Theatre/NextToNormal'' is terribly possessive of his mother. They even slow dance together at one point. Given that Diana's in the grips of severe delusions and manic episodes, she probably doesn't care about the implications of holding her son a bit too close.
* Pick a Eugene O'Neill play, any Eugene O'Neill play. Odds are you're going to encounter a seriously dysfunctional family vibe, owing to O'Neill's own deep-seated mommy issues, and the fact that he was heavily influenced by Greek theatre, home of the original Oedipus and Electra. The subtext is particularly heavy in ''Mourning Becomes Electra'', a theatrical trilogy which moves the plot of the classic Orestia to Civil War era New England. To try to sum up the tangle of dysfunction: Lavinia Mannon appears to be totally in love with her father, General Ezra Mannon, and hateful to her mother-in-law Christine. Christine murders Ezra, so she can be with the handsome young sailor Adam Brant, but also dotes on her son Orin in an entirely unmotherly way. Orin (suffering mental trauma from his time on the battlefield) returns the affection, but Lavinia manages to enlist him against his mother by informing him about Christine's affair, which sends him into a rage which clearly has more to do with jealousy than any kind of familial loyalty. After Christine is driven to suicide, Orin seems to waver between wanting to kill his sister, and wanting to sexually dominate her. Suffice it to say, Eugene O'Neill was not a happy man.
* Sam Shepard's plays often deal with this. Sometimes it goes far past subtext.
* In some productions of Theatre/{{Pippin}}, Fastrada and her son Lewis display this.
* The script for ''Theatre/{{Road}}'' explicitly states that Louise's brother should invoke this. She's understandably freaked out.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' gives us the twin siblings Eirika and Ephraim, whose in-game supports all but outright spell it out. Their end-game weapons are even named after a pair of incestuous twins from a Wagner opera. If you finish the game with the A support, the ending changes and it's implied they ruled the kingdom together (As king and queen).
* Creepily invoked in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' when you find out that [[spoiler:Hiroko, the heroine]] is actually your protagonist's mother. The two are pretty close already, work together, are the same age, never stray from each other (she follows you on all game paths), and the whole thing [[spoiler:is an expy of you being Jesus and her a Virgin Mary.]]
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''; ignoring Brother's blatant squicky crush on his cousin Yuna, his sister Rikku has a few LesYay moments with Yuna herself including a Hot Spring scene where she looks down at Yuna's boobs and says "I know who's got it going on".
* ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'', a sequel spin-off of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a lot of this between brothers Weiss and Nero.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''
** Ragna the Bloodedge and Jin Kisaragi, though Jin's CrazyJealousGuy behavior takes this close to being canon. Usually Ragna is portrayed as being a CelibateHero, but ''Jin'' is obsessed with him thanks to [[EvilWeapon Yukianesa]] warping his feelings. Unfortunately for [[ButtMonkey Ragna]], the game developers fickin' ''[[HilarityEnsues LOVE]]'' using Yukianesa to warp Jin's feelings.
** The Murakumo Units, robot clones of Ragna and Jin's little sister, Saya, who are programmed to get as close to Ragna as possible in order to merge their respective incomplete [[ArtifactOfDoom Azure Grimoires]] for the purpose of forming a complete one. Of course, getting "as close as possible" is taken to its logical extreme and the {{Double Entendre}}s are about as subtle as a nuclear warhead in a restaurant. Nu-13 is flat-out {{yandere}} for Ragna, [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence treats their battle as foreplay]], ends it by impaling both herself and Ragna on a BFS and appears to consider their mixing blood as a union of some ''other'' bodily fluids. In the sequel, Nu-13's soul is installed into the chassis of an "[[EmptyShell uninstalled]]" older Unit, [[TheWoobie Lambda-11]], and the more violent aspects of her obsession with Ragna disappear, implying that it's the Murakumos' programming that distort their feelings. It's not-so-subtly implied [[spoiler:Noel Vermillion]], a.k.a. Mu-12 ''also'' has a crush on Ragna, which makes it possible that the Murakumos' love is also just a program.
** In ''Chronophantasma'', this is implied through [[spoiler:Izanami's]] interactions with Ragna. [[spoiler:Izanami is an all-powerful death goddess who is possessing the body of his little sister, Saya, and Izanami]] spends a good portion of the game trying to make Ragna "hers" and get him to join her side. She [[spoiler:offers him the head of one of her most powerful servants, Yuki Terumi, as payment for his loyalty, knowing full well that Ragna wants to kill him.]]
* The ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' games seem to love this trope, especially the second game, which may as well be called ''Fatal Frame 2: {{Twincest}}''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}''
** In ''VideoGame/SuikodenTierkreis'', Chrodechild and Fredegund... really care for each other, though the subtext mostly comes from the latter. [[DoggedNiceGuy Asad]] hilariously [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this near the end of the game, where he states he initially considered Meruvis as his rival, but now sees Fredegund as a larger threat.
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' has Frey and Lymsleia, despite the latter being ten years old. Early in the game, Lymsleia thinks she'll have to marry Frey if he wins the Sacred Games for her hand (Miakis was having a little fun with her), and later she asks if she can sleep with him. ...no, not that way, she's just cold and scared in an unfamiliar place. [[spoiler:In the GoldenEnding, Frey is appointed Commander of the Queen's Knights, the traditional position of the Queen's husband.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun''
** The "Golden Sun Gag Battle" 4koma doujinshi featured a comic in which Ivan uses his new "Reveal" power to spy through the clothes of Feizhi and Hama. In its defense, "Gag Battle" was published before ''The Lost Age'' was released, with the news that [[LongLostSibling Hama is Ivan's sister]]...
** Mia and Alex get some [[FoeYay rather ambiguous]] comments. In ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' they're confirmed to be cousins.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': Mithos is just a ''little'' too obsessed with his sister. [[spoiler: To the point where he's spend the last four milennia trying to bring her back to life.]]
* ''Franchise/MetalGear''
** Liquid Snake and Solid Snake. Not so much in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', although he's such an enormous LargeHam that most of his lines sound flirty, but in ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 4|GunsOfThePatriots}}'' there's {{Squick}}y scenes where he sniffs Snake's hair, blows kisses at him, and grapples him from behind [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything while Snake is helpless and simply begging him to stop]]. Although, when they do actually kiss, Liquid is definitely not Liquid any more.
** Emma and Otacon have a ''severe'' subtext thing going on in ''MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty''. First, when Emma reminisces about Otacon, she talks about their childhood and how they'd play house - with Emma as the wife and Otacon as the husband - and she seems ''very'' fond of remembering Otacon as the husband. Second, while [[spoiler:she's dying]], she mentions that she wants Otacon to look at her "as a woman".
* Alfred in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'' has an unhealthy devotion to Alexia which sure seems like incestuous feelings, [[spoiler:plus his habit of dressing up in her clothes]]. Alexia is aware of this and exploits them to her own ends.
* PlayedForLaughs in Asuka Kazama's ending in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 5''. Asuka defeats Jin Kazama (her cousin, although she wasn't aware of the connection until ''6'') and, trying to wake him, accidentally undoes his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Devil Jin transformation]]. When he tries to get up in a hurry, [[AccidentalPervert he trips over her and lands face-down in her boobs.]] There's no way to really interpret Asuka's initial facial impression afterwards; it could be shock, embarrassment, or begrudging attraction... but then she turns violently angry and [[PervertRevengeMode punches him for being a "pervert."]]
* ''SilentHillShatteredMemories''. [[spoiler: Cheryl ''really'' loves her daddy.]] Even if there were no incestuous feelings, the appearance could not have been accidental.
* This is the impression many get upon playing through the story of ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur V]]''. Not only is Patroklos saddled with an OedipusComplex for his [[spoiler:deceased]] mother Sophitia (to the point that [[spoiler:Elysium, the spirit of Soul Calibur, can manipulate him purely by [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith assuming his mother's form and beckoning to him]]]]), but his interactions with Pyrrha tend to carry an incestuous undercurrent as well. To be fair, Patroklos grew up raised by his father Rothion, who told him stories about his mother, spurring Patroklos [[SoProudOfYou to follow in her path as a holy warrior]], whereas [[DarkMagicalGirl Pyrrha]] was stolen away from her family at a young age (and thus has no memory of them), but their affection, which ''should'' be a strong case of [[TheFourLoves storge]], goes on a crash collision with RelationshipWritingFumble and veers right into eros territory.
* Furiae toward Caim (one-sided) in the US version of ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' -- in the Japanese version, it was less subtext and more text.
* Adelheid and Rose Bernstein from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. From Rose's part, she's [[BigBrotherWorship extremely]] [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace clingy]] to her "Dearest Brother" and he's the only one who can keep her RichBitch instincts [[MoralityPet somewhat at bay]], like in ''2003'' where Rose goes APESHIT if Adel's defeated and he has to tell her not to ''kill'' his opponents. On Adel's part, when Rose started ''hiding'' things from him in ''XIII'', he was extremely worried and distressed as [[DeclarationOfProtection he had vowed to help and protect her]], and at the end of the game [[spoiler:when Rose collapses after being freed from Botan's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]]]], Adel catches and holds her in his arms in a way that reminds more of a boyfriend catching his girlfriend than of mere siblings. [[http://frozenviolets.tumblr.com/post/36182081060 The extended intro]] to ''XIII'' features [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6d9qngPhk1r26asto3_250.gif a brief scene of Adel and Rose]] waltzing together in front of Rose Stadium, set to oddly romantic-sounding music and complete with fireworks.
* [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} The Lutece]] [[MadScientist Twins]] from ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite''. The tone of their voxophone recordings are ''very'' suggestive. You can explore the Luteces' house later in the game, and there is only one bed.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* In ''VisualNovel/DraKoi'' there's a running gag about the protagonist's mother wanting to jump his bones and being horrified at how he now seems to have a girlfriend, though the fact that the girlfriend happens to be a crazy dragon that's immune to all attack and can blow up cities doesn't help.
* Prince Liam from ''VisualNovel/PrincessDebut'' constantly lets the protagonist (for whom he is one of the possible love interests) know how much she reminds him of his sister. And how he loves her very, very, ''very'' much.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''
** Ep. 5 gives us this between Battler and Rosa: "Even though she was my aunt, she gave me a wink that would have made a man's heart jump."
** Battler tells Maria (9 years old) several times that she will have to let him fondle her when she grows up. [[ChildrenAreInnocent She agrees cheerfully]]. The TIP "Game Master Battler" has him order ''all'' of his aunts to wear skimpy outfits and serve him, though this is PlayedForLaughs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Comic]]
* ''GrimTalesFromDownBelow'' gives Mini Mandy who seems to only want to get her brother's praise.
* The subtext in ''Absolute Hot Sister'' is very obviously this. It seems Ellen is really intent on starting a relationship with her brother, even suggesting they sleep in the same bed (she sleeps nude, of course) and shower together. Later striop tone it down a bit to focus more on Ellen's role as an InnocentFanserviceGirl.
* ''{{Homestuck}}'':
** There's some of this due to the enforcement of EveryoneIsRelated near the end of Act 4. Dave and Rose had a rather snarkily flirty thing going on occasionally before it was revealed they were siblings, while John and Jade were also quite close, including one early flash of John falling asleep and seeing Jade in his dreams while romantic music played. (Of course, that was because he had finally awakened on Prospit and was seeing the future, but still.) Dave also apparently used to make sexual comments about Rose's mum to freak her out. Later, [[spoiler:Rose reveals that the 'choice babe in the pajamas' Dave asked about was actually the teen version of their biological mother]] and Dave complains about the game deliberately setting them up with family members:
-->'''DAVE:''' all these fuckin
-->'''DAVE:''' [[ParentalIncest momtraps]] and [[SiblingIncest sistertraps]]
-->'''DAVE:''' what a joke i hope skaia gets to have a good laugh over shit like this
-->'''DAVE:''' wait i forgot skaia doesnt laugh it just "sees" and "knows"
-->'''DAVE:''' its like a huge blue perv thats mad jazzed for kidcest
** And then in Act 6 Act 6 Act 3, [[{{Jerkass}} Caliborn]] starts going a bit odd regarding Calliope, his dead sister who shared the same body as him. It's complicated. [[RunningGag Boy, Cherubs sure are weird!]]
-->NOT TO IMPLY THAT ANY OTHER ASPECT OF HER IS LIKE YOUR SISTER. LIKE BEING ATTRACTIVE. WOW. WHAT? READ INTO STUFF MUCH? YOU DECIDE YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS. YOU STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS TOPIC STARTING AS OF IMMEDIATELY.
* The Heaven episode in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' subverts this with the deceased Roy Greenhilt and his mother, who (in afterlife reassuming her appearance at the age of 19) ReallyGetsAround. When she offers Roy to let him place his head in her lap while reading him his favorite children's tale, he is visibly disturbed by the idea and politely declines.

* The Gemini monster from the online game ''Website/UniCreatures'' is a pair of magical twin sisters. In [[http://unicreatures.com/creatures/Gemini/gemini_diocas.png their]] [[http://unicreatures.com/creatures/Gemini/gemini_lexsiel.png early]] [[http://unicreatures.com/creatures/Gemini/gemini_kaimei.png forms]], they don't look particularly yay-y, but in their final stage, [[http://unicreatures.com/creatures/Gemini/gemini.png they embrace delicately]] in a GirlsLove-like pose, and have FlavorText about how they "find time just for the two of them."
* Doug and Rob Walker, of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses fame. They managed to go from "I love you, man, you're a kick-ass brother" to "Gay ''and'' incestuous! You heard it here, folks!" in about two minutes, via a discussion of Doug's balls. The DVD also has Doug stripping slowly out of wet clothes while Rob films and hums supposedly stripper music, bantering back and forth with lines like "I'm saving this for our honeymoon" and "You know you want this shit".
* The YouTube channel "Geek and Sundry" features plenty of this between twin siblings Felicia and Ryon Day, who are not afraid to make quite raunchy and explicit sexual references during their video game play-throughs together.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** In episode "Little Girl in the Big Ten", Lisa speaks with a college girl (Carrie), and Lisa almost admits that thinks Bart is cute.
-->'''Lisa:''' I share a house with a couple of girls, couple of guys.
-->'''Carrie:''' Guys, huh? Are they cute?
-->'''Lisa:''' Well, Bart's kinda--- NO!
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has Azula and Zuko and their relentless FoeYay, ''especially'' on Azula's part, constantly acting like TheVamp around Zuko (admittedly, she acts that away around ''everyone''). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-eWsMMJwZ4 A scene]] in "The Awakening" (appropriate music added) involves Zuko barging into Azula's ''bedroom'' to confront her, while Azula gets way too close for comfort wearing nothing but a robe. In "The Earth King" there is a scene where Zuko dreams about a [[SnakesAreSexy serpentine]] dragon encircling him closely and whispering in his ear with Azula's voice, in a tone that can only be described as extremely seductive. The exact words are "It's getting late, are you planning to retire soon, my lord?...Relax, Fire Lord Zuko. Just let go. Give in to it." The creators even (jokingly?) shipped Zuko's alter ego with Azula at a convention.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', a Republic City hotel staff member apologizes to CreepyTwins Eska and Desna, saying that they were mistakenly booked in a room with [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed only one bed.]] Eska tells him that it's not a mistake. [[BaitAndSwitch "Desna sleeps in the tub."]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', Jetfire and Jetstorm are twin flying Autobots who call each other "brother" instead of their real names, are very protective of each other, share a friendly rivalry that doesn't really mean anything, and are almost never seen without the other ([[WildMassGuessing presumably because they might die as a result]]). Plus, they can [[CombiningMecha Combine]].
* Yin and Yang from ''YinYangYo''. Particularly scenes like the one in which Yang tells his sister: ''I don't have to listen to you, you're not hot anymore''.
* Dee Dee and Dexter from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' invoke this trope once in a while, especially since Dee Dee seems to prefer Dexter over every guy that may be a possible LoveInterest, due to the fact that every time guys (particularly Mandark) flirt with her, she sticks to Dexter. One obvious scene is the one in which Dexter and Mandark compete to save Dee Dee and, after she is saved by both, she is disgusted by Mandark, but kisses Dexter on the cheek. In another episode, Dexter becomes an adult to seduce a girl he likes, but guess who ends up attracted to him instead? ''Dee Dee''.
* [[{{Twincest}} Dipper and Mabel]] from ''GravityFalls'' have an awfully close relationship, with them being touchy-feely with each other, holding hands or hugging quite often.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'', Shifty gets a little affectionate with his big sister Daisy, licking her like a puppy-dog in the Wedding Picnic episode.
* In ''TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'' Tom still manages to have a few [[http://sarajaye.superbusnet.com/Pictures/inabarrell.PNG choice]] [[http://sarajaye.superbusnet.com/Pictures/look.PNG moments]] with his brother Alan ''and'' have a dynamic with his sister [[http://sarajaye.superbusnet.com/Pictures/flirtylookidk.PNG Anne]] that sometimes screams "they'd be strongly hinted at as a couple if they weren't siblings".
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' featured a song called "Gitchi-Gitchi-Goo". It was sung by siblings (Phineas and Candace) with hearts in the background, glitter dust etc. Part of its lyrics are "Bow-Chicka-Bow-Wow" - For those who don't know what I'm getting at: "Bow-chicka-wow-wow" is commonly known as the verbalization of typical 70s porn music. By siblings. The extended version includes these lyrics accompanied by a number of tender looks on Candace's part:
-->'''Phineas''': Oh I don't know what to do.\\
'''Candace''': I don't know what to do.\\
'''Phineas''': But I think I'm getting through.\\
'''Candace''': I think I'm getting through.
* ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'': Megaman and Protoman had something going on beyond rivalry, even without taking into account that last fight scene in "Bro Bots" (or hell, the entire episode). They spend just as much time trying to convince the other to defect to their side as they do shooting at each other, and Proto won't let any other Wily-bot touch Mega ("Just remember--Megaman is ''mine!''"). Plus, he seems rather disinterested in getting his sister to join Wily.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYA-j78XFn4 This scene]] manages to be [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming heart warming]], [[HoYay gay]], and [[{{Narm}} hilarious]] at the same time. Is there something more subtexty than hold handsing and asking for a "real brother relationship"?
* [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 He-Man]] and [[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]] are basically all over each other when they appear together. When riding on horseback He-Man hugs her very tightly from behind, looking a bit more comfortable than a normal sibling would. (But then again, He-Man rides a horse this way with everyone, including males.) The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8ZcmMK64Ok I Have The Power]]" that was created for the "Secret Of The Sword" movie where Adam and Adora first met sounds so much like a love duet it's a little unsettling. It is catchy, though: ''Somewhere out there someone needs me. I don't know how or where, but believe me. I'll walk the universe to find her. For better or for worse beside her''.
* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', [=WilyKat=] at one point tells his sister [=WilyKit=] "You're beautiful when you snarl." It seems MoralGuardians caught on to this, as it was [[EditedForSyndication cut from later airings and the DVD]].
* Coincidentally, the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' has this exchange between Tygra and Lion-O, who are now adoptive brothers:
-->'''Lion-O:''' I'm gonna ring that bell.\\
'''Tygra:''' And I'm gonna [[AccidentalInnuendo ring yours]]. (''wink'')
* Phil and Lil of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' which is a bit strange since they're only one year old. One episode has the babies put on a HighSchoolDance in the garden and Phil takes Lil. Another episode has them pretending to be lovers in a soap opera. They have strange reactions when they see each other in the buff in "Naked Tommy". When Chuckie discovers that a girl picks on him because she has a crush on him, Lil shoves Phil; when he asks why she did it, she responds "it's because I like you" and they both giggle. It's still apparent in ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'': Phil doesn't take Lil becoming more individual very well, and his reaction to her growing breasts isn't very typical of a brother. Another episode when Phil was hanging out a lot with his sister's best friend, Lil was upset that her friend was taking away her brother from her.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', the ComicBook/WonderTwins were more LikeAnOldMarriedCouple than any siblings. Not that real siblings never act in a manner fitting that trope, but these two were ''really'' written like a couple in an old-time sitcom sometimes.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' had a lot of this between cousins Ben and Gwen, who were written almost exactly like the writers were setting up a BelligerentSexualTension PuppyLove thing. Scenes like the [[HandsOnApproach slow dance lesson]] didn't do anything to dissuade this opinion. It is often rumored that the reason they were StrangledByTheRedString in the new series was because the writers wanted people to stop pairing them.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has this with virtually every member of the Smith household.
** Steve and Hayley. At one point, Steve had unknowingly purchased a naked picture of Hayley and masturbated to its image several times before being alerted to who it was. Then there's the episode where Roger convinced Steve that he was adopted. One of the first things he did was ''kiss Hayley'' saying that "we've been waiting to do for years".
** Stan has, on multiple occasions, mentioned that he doesn't mind if Steve or Hayley engage in both mildly and highly flirtatious acts with him because "he's their dad". These include allowing them to squeeze his glutes as he flexes his muscles, allowing Steve to look at his groin while he is wearing well fitting underwear, etc.
-->'''Stan''': Go ahead, kids, give 'em a squeeze! It's not weird, I'm your dad.
-->'''Stan''': I'll go get help, and you guys can look at my ass as I walk away. I think you'll be pleased.
** Hayley enters a relationship with Stan's CIA body double and doesn't at all seem disturbed that he looks exactly like her father (but does mention at one point that she gets "freaked out" when he talks like him), and naturally Stan isn't disturbed at all when he finds out, believing him to be the best boyfriend Hayley's had. Ironically knowing her past choices (aka a constantly high hippie) he might be right.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' contains several scenes in which Peter attempts to molest Meg, that is when she isn't occupying her position as the family ButtMonkey. Meg herself has a disturbing amount of scenes in which she and Chris engage in sexual acts. In "Halloween on Spooner Street", she and Chris kiss for the first time, and even though they are initially disgusted, several lines later in the series suggest that they may have continued this habit. At one point, Meg asks Chris if "he wants to continue practicing french kissing". Stewie has once shown interest in his grandfather, Carter Pewderschmit, in terms of wiping his buttocks after a trip to the bathroom. Chris, in addition to Meg, has shown interest in Lois. Peter at one point loses his memory, and believed it was fine to have sex with anyone, including his kids. Meg stated he'd done so before as a joke, but everyone took it too seriously because of her ButtMonkey status.
* TJ from ''WesternAnimation/WordGirl'' has a crush-like obsession with the title character. He has no idea that it's his older sister, Becky.
* The fifth episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' had this exchange, though it's more likely a throwaway joke:
-->'''Twin 1''': Would you like to accompany me to the concert show tonight?
-->'''Twin 2''': Are you asking me out on a date?
-->'''Twin 1''': Maybe. ''(this is followed by their creepy laughter)''
* The ''JusticeLeague'' episode "Metamorphosis" brings this out in ''spades'' for Simon Stagg and his daughter, Sapphire. When he shows up to her apartment, he's carrying flowers and checking his breath, as if he's a suitor. When he finds out she's engaged to Rex Mason, he tries to have him taken out of the picture entirely. And when a failed attempt to use the Metamorpho process results in his consciousness being transferred into a building-tall blob of slime, J'onn says that the creature is driven only by "pure desire" - and guess who he goes after first?
* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' seems to have this kind of relationship with his mother. He gets an erection at the thought of his mother dying and is claimed to yell out her name during sex, and that's just from the first episode. In "A Going Concern", when Malory is about to get married, Lana points out that he's upset because his mom's "leaving [him] for another man". And this exchange from first season episode "Killing Utne":
-->'''Malory''': ''(about a bell)'' Oh, that's right. I kept it on the nightstand to wake nanny whenever Sterling wet the bed.\\
'''Cheryl''': Wait, whose bed?\\
'''Woodhouse''': It was always "don't ask, don't tell."
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight stated ([[ThatRemindsMeOfASong in song]]) that her brother, Shining Armor, was her OnlyFriend prior to the show ([[RememberTheNewGuy even though he's introduced in the finale of Season 2]]), and that they were very close. As such, her extremely negative reaction upon learning of her brother's marriage (via a letter she received a day or two ''prior'' to the wedding) and her ensuing scrutiny and harsh criticism of the bride-to-be are very easy to interpret as ''jealousy''.
-->'''Applejack:''' Think maybe you're being just a tiny bit possessive of your brother?
