Haha! Guess what you were doing?
Sometimes in stories, two people meet and just seem destined for romance. Love blossoms in a particular way, or perhaps the two have a loveless Arranged Marriage lying in wait for them instead. But then, someone makes a startling discovery — genetics has struck! The couple-to-be are related — and not in the "same species" sense — and the romance or arranged marriage is called off. The result may be either great rejoicing or great despair. If it's not called off despite the consanguinity issue, intentional Brother–Sister Incest results. Or if the two still want to be together and the author doesn't want to go the incest route, a counter-reveal may show up to prove that the genetics aren't a problem after all.
These days, many people are squicked out by this, so the characters often find out before they tie the knot/do the nasty. This wasn't always the case; Oedipus was very happily (but unknowingly) married to his own mother for many years and had two daughters with her before things fell apart (to the extent that The Reveal resulted in Oedipus' mother killing herself and Oedipus himself stabbing his own eyes out), so this is Older Than Feudalism. Still, this trope is surprisingly common in anime and manga, as well as other Japanese entertainment, due to much more relaxed views on the subject in Japan.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The surprise relationship is usually either brother/sister or half-siblings (sharing one parent rather than both). Parent/child is much rarer these days than it was in ancient Greece, and similarl for uncle/niece or aunt/nephew, thanks to some culture's taboos on inter-generational relationships, even with no family relations involved.
First cousins, on the other hand, are only borderline squicky since marriage between cousins is actually legal in most places, and is quite acceptable in many romance novels. In fact, in the Arabian Nights, a man will call a woman he loves or is married to "daughter of my uncle" because, in that time, marriage between cousins was considered the best option! Because of this, it almost never appears as a plot point since it's a little too close for some folks to be comfortable, but not close enough that the plot demands the relationship break up. For relations more distant than first cousins (second cousins, removals and etc.) the squick diminishes with the distance. After all, thanks to how genetics and inheritance works within populations, if you're still having a problem with people who might be, say, 10th cousins or higher, the only relationship you're likely to be assuaged by is one where the couple come from radically different population groups.note To give a more concrete example: the British panel game QI once made an announcement that they knew for a fact that one of the panelists that evening was a descendent of the legendary 8th century ruler Charlemagne. Who was it? One of the panelists guessed it immediately - all of them. As well as the host, and the audience, and anyone watching at home, assuming they were from Europe at any point in their family tree. And it wasn't that Charlemagne Really Got Around, it was just that with so many generations since his time, everyone, by dint of pure mathematics (again, if you are of a European background) had to have at least some relationship with him.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The relationship is more like to be on the paternal side, because of Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe. Historically was a fairly common way of making the Veronica of a Betty and Veronica off-limits. This often results in Half-Sibling Angst.
If the characters don't know the truth in advance but the audience does, this overlaps with Dramatic Irony.
Expect spoilers.

Mo Dao Zu Shi: Jin Guangyao and Qin Su get engaged. Shortly before the wedding Qin Su's mother tells Jin Guangyao that his father raped her, and Qin Su is really his half-sister. He's horrified, especially because they already slept together and Qin Su is pregnant. He goes ahead with the wedding but refuses to touch Qin Su again (and kills their son to keep the incest a secret). Years later she learns the truth. It ends... badly.

One of the three protagonists in the web serial Addergoole Shahin has an intense romantic affair with another student Emrys. Later, it turns out that they're half-siblings, sharing a father. This doesn't seem to deter them in the least, as they wind up committing and getting married.
As a bonus, the couple above is involved in a sort of love triangle with a third person who, unbeknownst to all three at the time, is actually their father.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit:
Occurred in at least one plotline. The girl was the product of her mother's affair with the boy's father, and when the two began dating due to accidental reverse psychology (the mothers hated each other - the father was in fact the husband of both and living a double-life, known about by one of the wives the whole time) the girl is accidentally killed by her father when he reveals to her that he is the boy's father too. The autopsy reveals that the girl was pregnant when she died and that the boy was the father and that he was related to her. The boy is horrified and vomits in Stabler's office. The boy's mother kills his father when she finds out that he was planning on leaving her for the girl's mother, who was jailed for her part in the myriad crimes going around, with whom he also has a son, the boy's half-brother, and leaving the two new half brothers without any parent not in prison.
A truly dark example in season 19's "Send In the Clowns." A teen goes missing in New York and a butcher is accused of the crime. It turns out she's been having an affair with her music teacher who hailed her genius at the piano. The cops bring them both in as the girl's mother slaps the teacher and starts ranting about his seduction methods with obvious first-hand knowledge. She confesses to her husband she had a one-night stand with the guy...17 years ago. "Do the math." The man himself is utterly horrified, nearly throttled by the husband and it's reported he's on suicide watch. His daughter's reaction? She's happy because she now knows her father is a musical genius, not "a garbage man" and Benson realizes the girl is deeply troubled.

In the Burke's Law episode "Who Killed the King of the Country Club?" had the killer trying to avoid this. A new member of the club turns out to have been killed by an elderly woman whose daughter had started dating the man. When the horrified daughter asks why her mother did this as "I loved that man!" her mother reveals "that man was your father!" 25 years earlier, she'd had a one-night stand with a plumber just a month before her wedding. She was thus able to pass off the child as her husband's. As fate had it, the plumber ended up becoming a millionaire to join the club and the woman was terrified he would end up in bed with their daughter. Burke openly asks why she didn't just tell either the truth but the woman didn't want to ruin her own social status with the affair becoming public. She's led off as the daughter can't believe how close she came to bedding her own father.

In Shadow Hearts: Covenant, the hero Yuri meets the babealicious Karin and the two go through many harrowing adventures together. It becomes clear pretty quickly that Karin is falling for Yuri, although he's still pining over his lost love from the first game in the series. However, at the end due to some messing around with the space-time continuum, Karin ends up traveling back in time and marrying Yuri's father...and becoming Yuri's mother. Good thing they never actually got together, eh? This makes sense in a twisted way. Considering that Yuri and his father were apparently very similar people, it does make sense that Karin first falls for Yuri in her time and for his father in the past. While they only remained friends, Yuri does manage to convince Karin to wear a very skimpy outfit. The scene becomes either squicky or more hilarious afterwards depending on how perverted your sense of humor is.

The end of the episode with the Pimp Hat in Less Than Perfect had Owen and his Distaff Counterpart date reveal that one of the many things they had in common was that they both had donor dads who were artists. Claude pulls him aside to tell him that it was very likely they were brother and sister. He retorts that "this couldn't wait until tomorrow?", meaning he wasn't completely against the incest.

Detective Conan has a case with Raita Banba and his fiancee, Hatsune Kamon. Uniquely, it turns out that they're identical twins and that the latter has Turner syndrome . Hatsune suspected something was up upon learning that in addition to their identical birth dates, blood types, and unusual ability to know what the other was thinking even when they were silent, that they'd both been adopted after being orphaned as infants in a massive fire that destroyed their birth neighborhood. When she gets the test results confirming it, she... doesn't take it well. And for worse, Raita is accused of having killed her in a Yandere fit. Conan, through Kogoro, has to clear his name.

The trope image comes Hiimdaisy's parody of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney where is revealed that the eponymous lawyer and his assistant and Phoenix's adoptive daughter Trucy are half-siblings from their mother's side. The game keeps mum about this and so do the two following entries although the latter does include a stinger where Phoenix tells their mother that it's time for Apollo and Trucy to know the truth. Time will tell if they did address it or not. Of course, the comic follows a path where they never found out, thus leading to this trope.

Vampire Knight: When Kaname turns Yuuki into a vampire, restoring her memory, she reveals to the audience that Kaname is her brother. Ah, so the Love Triangle will be easily solved, won't it? Wrong. Kaname confirms she's his sister and states she was born to become his wife. Then he asks the other why they look surprised — this is very common among pureblood vampires, and in fact, their own parents (Juri and Haruka) were siblings and Happily Married. Later it turns out that Kaname wasn't her brother, but a distant ancestor who had been asleep for hundreds, if not thousands, of years and her real brother was given to him as a blood sacrifice so that he could be revived. It's still incest so it's double subverted. The situation is exactly as complicated as it sounds.

All over the place in the 0verflow universe (which School Days is a part of), thanks to the omnipresent patriarch Tomaru Sawagoe banging a lot of women (even those related to him) and maintaining his secrecy in regards to his kinship with many characters. As a result, a lot of characters who are in romantic or sexual relationships share a familial connection that can be traced back to the Tangled Family Tree that he has made. One prominent example would be Makoto and Sekai, who are half-uncle and half-niece thanks to the former being Tomaru's son and the latter being Tomaru's granddaughter.

In the Fire Emblem franchise:
In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War:
Seliph and Princess Julia seem instantly attracted to each other upon meeting, but it turns out that Julia is Seliph's inbreed half-sister, as Seliph's mother Deirdre was brainwashed and forced to breed with her half-brother Arvis (who had no idea that they were siblings). There's a reason that the game's Relationship Values system won't allow them to be paired—unless you exploit a programming glitch.
In the first half, Claude's most popular pairing is with Sylvia, who is hinted to be his long-lost sister, but said by Word of God to be a distant cousin.
In Fire Emblem Awakening it was implied that Lissa was smitten with a man posing as Marth who had saved her from Risen. Keep in mind, that Marth is her distant ancestor, but it turns out that 'Marth' was actually Lissa's niece from the future.
In Fire Emblem Fates, the Male Avatar gets a nice dose of Ship Tease with Azura...and then the Golden Path reveals they're cousins. And since The Reveal doesn't occur until almost the end of the game, there's a solid chance they'll be married at that point. Given the medieval-esque setting, though, and how neither seems to particularly care about the relation if they are married, marrying one's cousin is probably seen as an acceptable thing. And note The Reveal only happens in the Golden Path: they could theoretically marry in any of the paths, meaning in two of them they never find out they're cousins.

Arrow: Early scenes suggesting a possible spark between Tommy Meryln and Thea Queen become squicky in hindsight after the Season 2 reveal that they are half-siblings, sharing the same father. Thea had made a pass at Tommy which he rejected because she was like a kid sister to him; when she learns (after Tommy's death) about her true parentage, Thea is understandably freaked out.

One episode of House had a young married couple who both turned out to share the same rare genetic disease... because unknown to the couple, the man's father had slept with the woman's mother and they were half-siblings. On top of that, the half-brother wants to stay together; while the half-sister is disgusted. The episode ends without resolving the situation, leaving the brother/husband hoping that she'll come back while Foreman (who supports the relationship) keeps him company.

On Dallas, the writers revealed after a few seasons that the Ewings' farmhand Ray was Jock Ewing's illegitimate son, having forgotten that in the beginning of the series, he had been having an affair with Jock's granddaughter Lucy. After realizing what they'd done, they made sure to never reference the affair again, though it was never actually denied to have happened.

Kind of inverted in Meet the Robinsons. Louis goes to the future, spends time with the Robinson family, and begins to see Franny as a bit of a mother figure (Even actually calling her mom and almost being adopted by her at one point) before finding out that she is actually his future wife. One wonders how he wasn't the least bit squicked out when he meets her for the "first time" in the past.

Played for laughs in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987). Krang is shown to be watching a soap opera, featuring two characters in a passionate love affair. Marcia reluctantly explains to John that they can't marry because she's his twin sister, from whom he was Separated at Birth during a hospital blackout. John assures her that it's all right because he's not her brother - when he was born, an insane nurse switched him with another baby. Krang is openly weeping.

In the Baldur's Gate series, Imoen and the main character (if he's male) have the sort of sorta flirty relationship you'd expect from lifelong friends of opposing genders. For that matter, if the main character's female they have the sorta flirty relationship you'd expect from lifelong friends of that sort. When Baldur's Gate II was released and Imoen was not one of the characters with whom you could pursue a romantic relationship, a lot of fans of the original were very surprised and rather disappointed... until you found out that Imoen was your half-sister.
This is actually brought up in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal if the main character's male. Viconia insists to Imoen that given the number of times he's saved her life, she should serve him in every way. Imoen acts squicked and cites why. Viconia brushes it off, pointing out that the common heritage would hardly one of blood. Imoen then notes that — canonically by that point — the main character has saved Viconia's life at least twice...
Some people did a mod that allows this relationship; the Imoen Romance mod for Baldur's Gate II is alive and well, and is widely known for near-total freedom of choice in the protagonist's options. Imoen is romanceable by both males and females, and to the mod's credit, does not shy away from the incest issue — Imoen in particular has issues with it.

On The Outpost, Janzo has spent most of the second season bantering and flirting with handmaiden Naya. They finally share kisses while locked in a cell alongside Jazo's mother, the Mistress. Naya tells of her mother and as soon as she hears the name, the Mistress starts laughing "know her? I sold you to her!" She then spells out how Janzo has just been making out with his twin sister. Poor Janzo nearly has a full breakdown and Naya isn't much better.

Days of Our Lives:
The show had a scene in which Lucas almost has sex with Cassie. They are only stopped when Rex, Cassie's twin brother, arrives and tells them that they are half-siblings.
Before that, Cassie had a crush on and kissed her cousin Shawn-Douglas.
Long before that in Days, Tony DiMera was in love with a woman named Renee. Unfortunately, it turned out they shared the same father, Stefano, but luckily it soon came out that Tony was really the son of the family's gardener, not Stefano (of course, since this was a soap by that point Renee had married another man...and then got killed by a serial killer...). For long-time fans, this caused a serious amount of squick when years later a retcon made Tony Stefano's biological son, but in the end another retcon made the Tony that had appeared since then his evil doppleganger Andre (long story, naturally) and showed that Tony wasn't Stefano's biological son after all.

She's in a relationship with his son from another woman, so he's afraid the trope is in play. However, it turns out that Laura and Jade are really the same woman.

In Hard Reset, Twilight figures she might as well use a "Groundhog Day" Loop to have a one-night-stand with Princess Luna. In the sequel, she finds out she had, long ago, another suitor. One that Twilight's also attached to in a way. Celestia then reminds Twilight that 1,600 years is probably sufficient time. 'You’re probably more closely related to a random unicorn wandering the streets of Canterlot, genetically speaking.'

In One Hundred Years of Solitude, the biggest fear of the matriarch Ursula is that some of her descendants will be born with a pig's tail, in the fear that it could be the end of both her family and the town. This finally happens a long time after her death, when the last members of the family, Amaranta Ursula and Aureliano Buendía, aunt and nephew respectively, mate and give birth to a pig-tailed baby who is eaten by ants, after his mother dies in childbirth and his father forgot to take care of him because of his deep grief. Both lovers were unaware of their real relation, and Aureliano Buendía only discovers it in the last page of the novel, just seconds before the destruction of the town.

This prompts the couple to break up, but it turns out that Maeby's mother Lindsay was adopted, meaning Maeby isn't related to Steve after all (Subverted), or indeed her other cousin George Michael, who had been attracted to her since the pilot (Inverted). An adult eventually finds out, however, and decides that regardless of who is related to whom the whole thing is just too weird.

In one episode of The Love Boat, a woman comes on board with her son, to meet the daughter she gave up for adoption. Before they all get together, the son and the daughter meet, and, not knowing who the other is, they fall in love and have sex. The daughter is freaked out when she meets the mother and discovers who the guy she slept with is. Fortunately the son is actually the mother's step-son, so the couple aren't blood siblings and can get married, but the mother has no idea how she'll phrase the wedding invitations.

Just Shoot Me!:
Jack's handsome new ex-marine trainer keeps trying to ask Nina out. Nina, who usually Really Gets Around, keeps refusing, much to her surprise. It is at episode's end that she discovers why she's not attracted to him: they're cousins.
In another episode an old female friend of Jack's shows up with her son, and he and Maya show signs of being interested in each other. Jack, however, is horrified, because he had a one-night stand right before her wedding and the timing would line up with him being the young man's father. Eventually she reveals that she secretly got a sample of Jack's DNA years ago and tested it, showing he's not the father. By this point though Nina's broken the news to the would-be couple, and the man is horrified, so he breaks up with Maya.

In Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami, the protagonist begins to have a sexual relationship with an older woman who he suspects might be his mother. She denies it, but it is heavily implied both that she actually is his mom and that she already knows this to be true.

In Black Adventures, Black has a crush on his childhood friend White and is shocked to learn from Mom that she's his twin sister, who went with their father after the divorce. Mom is oblivious to Black's romantic intent and never got around to telling him that they're related until right before he was going to confess.

Subverted in The Mortal Instruments. Clary and Jace are revealed to be siblings at the end of City of Bones. They spend all of City of Ashes and most of City of Glass angsting about their attraction, until it's revealed that Jace was adopted. Played straight with Sebastian/Jonathan, Clary's actual brother, who kisses her despite knowing full well that she's his sister.

Referenced in My Name Is Earl. Joy never told her parents that she divorced Earl and married Darnell because she believes her father is a racist since he wouldn’t let her date a Black boy in high school. It’s later revealed that he had numerous affairs with Black women throughout the years, and don’t want her dating that boy because he was probably her half-brother.

At the end of the True Pacifist route of Undertale, the married dog couple Dogamy and Dogaressa are briefly concerned that their parents having melded into the Amalgamate Endogeny might technically make them siblings. They conclude that since they're dogs, they don't have an incest taboo anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Koi Kaze has 27-year-old Koshiro and 15-year-old Nanoka having a chance encounter, going to an amusement park together, forming an emotional connection and spark of mutual attraction, and then finding out they're brother and sister in the first episode. This turns into a deconstruction of Brother–Sister Incest, as the two struggle to resist their mutual attraction while living in the same house but eventually go on to develop a painful and guilt-ridden romantic relationship against their better judgment, fully aware of the devastating implications if their secret got out, but both unwilling to live without the other.

Red Dwarf:
It was revealed that Lister's ex-girlfriend Kochanski is actually his mother. In the next series, Lister still uses a sexual-magnetism virus to seduce her in an elevator despite his knowledge of this and it nearly works. Then again, Lister also discovered at the same time that he was his own father (via in-vitro fertilization), which probably trumps any genetic relationship concerns.
Anticipated by Rimmer in "Back To Earth"; After telling the creator to create for him a beautiful, adoring girlfriend, he quickly adds that she should NOT turn out to be his long-lost sister.
The novelization Better Than Life has Rimmer's second wife turn out to be based on a younger version of his mother. He can't even complete the thought when he realizes it, he's too disgusted and horrified.

Her mother still tells Jin Guangyao the truth... and then he marries her anyway. And has sex with her when he knows she's his sister.

American Dad! had a version of this in an episode where Roger painted a nude portrait of Hayley for an art class, then rented it out to Steve as masturbation materialnote he didn't know it was her because the painting stopped at her lips. Hayley is naturally Squicked and tries to put a stop to it; at the end of the episode, Roger drops the bomb, which horrifies poor Steve (rather than blaming him, Hayley is sympathetic and just gets angrier at Roger for manipulating him).
In another episode Roger plays a prank where he makes Steve believe that Francine and Stan aren't his real parents. Under his false impression, he suddenly kisses a horrified Hayley, to Roger's delight.

What makes this hilarious though, is that once Trunks returns to the future to report on his progress, Future Bulma is rather nonplussed at the idea that her past self hit on him:

The Korean soap opera Winter Sonata is Marmalade Boy if Yuu went missing, got amnesia, and really is half-siblings with his love interest. Well, in fact he could be instead the half-sibling of his love rival, but the soap just was happy toying with that until the last chapter.
There is a memorable scene in this drama where one of the rivals, after being clued of the above situation and arguably tired for the on-off situation who has already left her out of the game, ends yelling to one part of the conflicted couple "It doesn't matter if you are really siblings or not, just go out of the country and marry anyway! Abroad nobody is going to know!".

She knows where he lives, seems to have little boundaries with him, and is unusually concerned about his safety for someone he barely knows. When one of their hacks is successful and Darlene congratulates him and tells him she "loves [him] so much", Elliot kisses her, which causes her immediate disgust and she asks if he's forgotten who she is. Turns out, she's his sister and Elliot, who has a number of mental issues, has forgotten this.

In Fire Emblem Fates, the Male Avatar gets a nice dose of Ship Tease with Azura...and then the Golden Path reveals they're cousins. And since The Reveal doesn't occur until almost the end of the game, there's a solid chance they'll be married at that point. Given the medieval-esque setting, though, and how neither seems to particularly care about the relation if they are married, marrying one's cousin is probably seen as an acceptable thing. And note The Reveal only happens in the Golden Path: they could theoretically marry in any of the paths, meaning in two of them they never find out they're cousins.

In Shortpacked!, Amber learns that her Abhorrent Admirer, the incredibly perverted Faz, is actually her half-brother due to her father's adultery. She's legitimately worried that he'll still hit on her after finding out, though, and puts off telling him until their dad's death forces the issue. Faz does lose interest in Amber, but even then it seems to be more a combination of a.) feeling betrayed that Amber didn't tell him sooner and b.) having found an actual girlfriend (who is also super pervy and probably would've been fine with an incestuous threesome).

In A Brother's Price, Jerin and Ren hit it off to the point where he's left a Technical Virgin. Then they find out that because his grandmothers kidnapped a prince, they share great-great-grandmothers, making them first cousins twice removed, second cousins once removed, or third cousins. Jerin is initially disturbed by this revelation, but Ren says it's fine and later others agree. Many of the nobility are somewhat more inbred than commoners and actually, this reveal makes him a Suddenly Suitable Suitor.

A rare ray of sunshine in The First Law is the romance between Savine dan Glokta and Crown Prince Orso dan Luthar. She's an ambitious social climber, he's a feckless royal layabout. After Savine has a close call in the uprising that forms the centerpiece of A Little Hatred, Orso proposes marriage, and Savine agrees. She comes home and glowingly tells her mother that she's going to be queen...and her mother is nearly sick. It turns out the man she knew as her father isn't her biological father; her mother was knocked up by the king, and they were married in order to keep her safe. Meaning that Savine and Orso have the same father. She immediately breaks it off with Orso and doesn't tell him why until after a bit of civil war in the next book.

Domestic Girlfriend: A Not Blood Siblings example. Natsuo has a crush on his teacher Hina and ends up having sex with Rui, a girl he met at a mixer, in an attempt to forget about her. A week later, his father gets remarried and his new stepmother brings her daughters Hina and Rui to live with them. As his feelings for the girls grow, he keeps trying to keep himself under control by reminding himself that they are his sisters. He eventually starts dating Hina, but that relationship ends because of their teacher/student relationship. Much later, he starts dating Rui, and while their relationship is much more stable, they still have to deal with the fact that they have to hide it from their parents.

The Kwisatz Haderach breeding program of the Bene Gesserit in the Dune series does rather a lot of this if the crosses mentioned in the books are a representative sample. The people involved are generally unaware, at least at the time.
According to their plan, Jessica was supposed to have a daughter with Duke Leto Atreides. The daughter was then supposed to be married off to a Harkonnen heir in order to end their millennia-long rivalry. However, Jessica is actually Baron Vladimir Harkonnen's daughter (although she didn't know until Paul told her). This means that the plan was for Jessica's daughter to marry her cousin.

Afterwards, he tells Murdock that he's going to ask her out after their mission is over because he's never met anyone else he's "felt so at ease with." Murdock starts insisting that she's not Face's type because he and the audience both know, due to dramatic irony, that this beautiful woman is actually his half-sister, and her fugitive father is also his.

In the 2007 remake of Flash Gordon Aura and Terek were in place to start up a romantic relationship, only for Flash to burst into the room to inform them that they are siblings. Later, it turns out they're twins.

One of the episodes in Mike Tyson Mysteries involves a couple who doesn't want their daughter to marry a man. As it turns out, the man is the husband's son from an affair with a pig. They end up marrying despite being related (and the fact the man is half-pig). Mike and his friends are grossed out by it all.

Code 46 deals with a future where, due to extensive cloning, there is a likelihood of a close genetic relationship between perfect strangers. Maria becomes pregnant by William, only to discover that, biologically, she's his mother; due to the laws, the baby is aborted and Maria's memories are modified to forget she ever met William, but unfortunately, nobody told William. He finds her again, only this time their intimacy triggers an implanted suggestion, causing Maria to turn herself and William in, this time resulting in a memory wipe for him and for her exile with her memories intact.

This is actually brought up in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal if the main character's male. Viconia insists to Imoen that given the number of times he's saved her life, she should serve him in every way. Imoen acts squicked and cites why. Viconia brushes it off, pointing out that the common heritage would hardly one of blood. Imoen then notes that — canonically by that point — the main character has saved Viconia's life at least twice...

Shows up occasionally in works made with The Sims 2: unattended children can be taken away by a social worker, and then adopted into a different family. The adoption code nukes the family connection to the birth parents and creates one with the adoptive parent(s). Some players have used this loophole to have siblings, and twins, adopted into different families, strike up romances. Since there's no genetic penalty for incest, they can even have kids. Read all about it.

Depending on your interpretation of their relationship before the big reveal, Kira and Cagalli of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. They never really got around to doing anything, but they definitely looked like the usual romantic pairing all the way up to the last five episodes of the series. Especially since the first half of Gundam SEED was heavily based on the original Mobile Suit Gundam, with Kira and Cagalli having roles roughly analogous to Amuro and Sayla. Word of God is that this was a deliberate reference to Luke and Leia.

Kamen Rider:
Kamen Rider Double has a strange example that's not quite playing with and may be a Relationship Writing Fumble or may have been intentional. Phillip is really the brother of Wakana but doesn't know it at the time. He's close to her and plans to leave town with her. Then it turns out that she's really his sister. Once the reveal is made there's no change in plans or attitudes at all (although things change for other reasons) and the audience is apparently supposed to accept that "I care for this girl I know" and "I care for my sister" were exactly the same thing all along. There isn't even a lampshading. Although, to be fair, he never really seemed to think of her that way. Or any other girl or guy for that matter.
Kamen Rider Den-O likewise sank the ship of Ryotaro/Hananote which already took a massive hit when Hana was de-aged to childhood by revealing that the latter was the former's Niece from the Future. Thanks, Time Travel! They still got off better than the Yuuto/Hana shippers, though.
Kamen Rider Kabuto has plenty of Ship Tease for Tendou and Hiyori earlier in the series (with a guest actor who'd played Tendou as a child stating in an interview that he'd been led to believe Hiyori was Tendou's love interest.) However, Hiyori turns out to be a Worm that has copied itself from Tendou's sister, making them siblings. Subsequently, the show dropped any potential romantic arc between them and began having Kagami pursue her instead.

A possible example is Millernium "Milly" Feria Noctum and Kane Blueriver in Lost Universe, although, since they are second-cousins, they're probably distant enough to date if they really wanted to, and the very open ending lends serious doubts as to whether Kane survives the end of the series anyway.

Parodied in Back to the Future where Marty knows that young Lorraine will be his mother, but she doesn't, so she pursues him romantically to his great dismay. The attraction conveniently disappears after she kisses him, saying that it was like kissing her brother. Chalk it up to women's intuition, the timeline trying to correct itself, or just finally cottoning on to Marty's obvious discomfort.

In Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, we see the protagonist, Apollo Justice. His attractive assistant is Trucy Wright, Phoenix Wright's daughter. They got a bunch of Ship Tease in-game until it was revealed that Trucy was adopted, and she's Apollo's half-sister through their mother Thalassa. Oddly, it still hasn't stopped the fan pairing from still occurring. This is probably because while the players learn that Trucy and Apollo are related, they themselves never do (although at the end of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, Phoenix and Thalassa decide it's time for them to know).

In the Peter David novel Sir Apropos of Nothing, the title character eventually falls in love with the princess he's guarding. But the morning after they've consummated their love...he finds a flame birthmark on her hip, which suspiciously looks like the one on his. Further, it's revealed (though to Apropos only) that the princess is the illegitimate daughter of the Queen and the court jester... and that answers Apropos's question of who his father is, as his mother was raped by a gang of knights... and a shadowy figure that matches the description of the court jester.

Theon Greyjoy's unrecognized tomboy sister practically seduces him until The Reveal to purposefully mess with his head, and see what kind of man he's grown into during their separation.
Almost used later when Gendry, who has no clue that his father is King Robert, meets a whore named Bella who flirts with him, all the while bragging that she's the king's bastard. Part of her argument is that she has his famous black hair. Arya (who does not know the truth either) argues that Gendry has it, too, so it's not like it means much. Fortunately for everyone, Gendry's really not in the mood.

Dark (2017):
Jonas finds out that he has been involved in this once he finds out the truth about his father's identity as the time-displaced-to-1986 Mikkel late in season one. However, the other party does not find the truth out until one season later, but this revelation does not stop the two from still having romantic feelings for each other... at least before the older Jonas murders Martha in front of the younger Jonas to ensure his own timeline proceeds as happened.
Season 2 reveals that Charlotte's daughter, Elisabeth, is also her mother, meaning that their husbands, Peter and Hanno/Noah respectively, unknowingly married their own granddaughters.
Season 3 reveals the same deal to be true of the entire Nielsen/Kahnwald line, as Tronte Nielsen, Ulrich's father, was the son of The Unknown, the son of Martha (Ulrich's daughter) and Jonas (Ulrich's grandson, albeit not the same Ulrich). Meaning their partners all married, or at least had a child with, their own great-great-grandsons, who are also their great-great-great-grandsons, at least genetically. Oh, and Agnes and Noah's parents turn out to be Bartosz and Silja; Silja is Bartosz's half-great-aunt. Confused yet? So is the universe.

In Thieves' World badasses Tempus and Cime seem to be laboring under various curses related to this (or effects of mitigators). It seems to have driven them both Ax-Crazy, though in different ways.

Henry Fielding seems to like to subvert this trope for particular effect: In Joseph Andrews, the hero thinks for a while that his childhood sweetheart is his sister; while in The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling, a random one night stand is later seemingly revealed to be the protagonist's mother... Oh NO! Our hero has done something legitimately bad! Fortunately, this is later resolved to be a lie.

Pyramids by Terry Pratchett features a pair of romantically inclined half-siblings who eventually figure it out (before getting seriously involved). This one might be a Shout-Out to Star Wars, as the non-related male love interest is a Lovable Rogue smuggler with a Cool Ship. (Also there's a bit of a twist, what with them being royalty in Fantasy Counterpart Egypt, where royalty traditionally marry relatives, so the Morpork-educated brother is probably the only person in the kingdom who has a problem with it.)

After he does "the nasty in the past-y", Professor Farnsworth explains to Fry that not only is she his grandmother after all, Fry's grandfather is Fry himself.

Subverted in The Elvenbane by Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey when Valyn is determined to push away Shana even though he admits that she is lovely and knows that she has a massive crush on him. He does this because he suspects that she is his half-sister. He actually goes so far as to set her up with his sidekick in a "handfasting" ritual. However, he picks up the Idiot Ball when he refuses to tell her why he is rejecting her even though she is hurt and angry about it. His excuse? She was Raised by Wolves (or dragons, in her case) and he's not sure if such things matter to her, in spite of the fact that she has already shown herself to be intelligent and fairly well-versed in human and elven culture.

In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War:
Seliph and Princess Julia seem instantly attracted to each other upon meeting, but it turns out that Julia is Seliph's inbreed half-sister, as Seliph's mother Deirdre was brainwashed and forced to breed with her half-brother Arvis (who had no idea that they were siblings). There's a reason that the game's Relationship Values system won't allow them to be paired—unless you exploit a programming glitch.
In the first half, Claude's most popular pairing is with Sylvia, who is hinted to be his long-lost sister, but said by Word of God to be a distant cousin.

Game of Thrones:
There's a somewhat squick-worthy one-sided example of this. In Episode 2 of Season 2, Theon Greyjoy returns to his homeland where he meets a young woman and they begin flirting. During a subsequent horseback ride, Theon begins feeling up the woman in a sexual manner (this is the series that led to the phrase "sexposition" being coined) and she not only doesn't object, she seems to take pleasure from it. A few minutes later, Theon (and the audience) get squicked when he learns that woman he was making out with was his sister, Yara, whom he hasn't seen since she was a child, and that she was aware the entire time and played along mostly to see how he'd react in a Secret Test of Character. Needless to say, he failed miserably.
As of Season 7, there is sexual tension developing between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, and it stops being tension when they have sex in the season finale. However, unbeknownst to either of them they're nephew and aunt; despite being the same age, as Jon is actually the son of Dany's much older brother Rhaegar. In Season 8, when they find out, Dany doesn't really care about the incest (coming from a dynasty and culture where marriage between siblings was a regular occurrence), and is more concerned that Jon's true heritage means he has a stronger claim to the Iron Throne than she does, as any legitimate child of Rhaegar would be ahead of her in the Targaryen line of succession. However, while Jon has sworn his undevoted allegiance to her and expresses no interest in disputing her claim, he is much more uncomfortable with their consanguinity, rebuffing Dany's romantic advances afterwards.

In Arthur, King of Time and Space, Arthur sleeps with Morgan (in the space arc) and Morguase (in the baseline arc) without realizing the relationship. (Or vice versa — when Merlin finds out about Morgan he specifically notes that she should have been able to figure out who the mother of the rightful king must have been, but apparently she didn't. And Morguase didn't either, because if she had she'd have realized that her spell wouldn't work properly.)

Subverted. Due to some coincidences and assumptions, Qrow believes that Jaune is his sister Raven's son, and therefore his niece Yang's half-brother. Since they're kind of dating at this point, Qrow is horrified, and tries to sabotage their burgeoning relationship. This actually leads to their relationship getting stronger. Thankfully, Qrow was wrong, and Jaune is not related to Yang at all.
And then there's the moment where Qrow discovers the girl he is in the middle of having sex with is Jaune's sister—while he still believes Jaune is Raven's son. There is a lot of screaming.

Parodied in Joe Dirt — in Joe's quest for his lost family, he finds and goes out with an attractive girl who he realizes afterwards was his sister, goes back to tell her and explain why he can't date her (and probably ask her for information), but somehow gets seduced into sleeping with her, then tells her his suspicion. She then explains why she couldn't possibly be his sister, and that they can make love again. Joe puts on a mischievous face and the camera cuts back to the outside of the house... as nothing happens.
Joe then assures the radio people he's telling the story to "No, that last part didn't really happen, I just thought it'd be funny."

In Duskwood, there's a one-sided variant between Hannah and Jake, the hacker who contacts the player. They're half-siblings, unknown to her but known to him. Having no other family, he reached out to her a few years before the game begins, wanting to connect. The thing is, he didn't tell her they're related, with his reasoning being that he didn't want to cause strife in her family, as his existence is the result of Hannah's father cheating on her mother. He was content to just be friends with no familial connection, but Hannah, unaware of the truth, fell in love with him. When he realized, he quickly distanced himself from her and finally cut all contact.

The Criminal Minds episode "Taboo" had an interesting take on this trope. The unsub was adopted as a baby by a single mother with a biological teenage daughter. The daughter was hypersexual, thanks to a brain injury, and the boy grew up attracted to her, even spying on her as she had sex with his friends. When she takes him to a lover's lane for privacy, he gleefully makes his move, pointing out that they're Not Blood Siblings, so it's about time for him to get his turn. She then reveals the truth: she's not his sister, she's his mother. The boy snaps, blaming his "sister" and "mother" for turning him into an abomination.

On Shadowhunters, after an entire season of flirting, kissing, and overall developing strong romantic feelings for one another, Jace and Clary find out they are actually brother and sister in the episode "Blood Calls To Blood", from the mouth of Clary's father Valentine (later confirmed by Clary's mother). Actually, Valentine lied: Jace is the child of a different pair of Shadowhunters altogether, whom Valentine raised to compare with Clary's actual biological brother Jonathan (and telling Mom that Jace was Jonathan). On those grounds, Jace and Clary resume their relationship late in season two.

In EastEnders, Kareena Ferreira dated family friend Tariq, later making the relationship incestuous when it's revealed Tariq is her half-brother; the family's father had an affair with Tariq's mother. Tariq knew the truth, but thought that he could get closer to the family by dating Kareena, taking care to ensure the relationship never became sexual.

Please Twins! played with this one. Each girl came believing that she was the twin sister. They find out about each other and realize that they each have a 50/50 chance of being the twin. They both fall in love with the man a few episodes after this. The irony being the anime had one of the girls be the guy's sister, and the novelization had the other one.

A subtle one occurs in the relaunch of Battlestar Galactica where Ellen Tigh sleeps with Cavil to free Saul. As it turned out, Ellen was one of the Final Five and was essentially Cavil's mother. It was a double-whammy, too. Not only had Ellen viewed Cavil as a son, he was also designed to look like her father. Just another sign of how deep his misanthropy and hatred toward his "parents" really ran. And while Ellen was unaware of this due to amnesia, Cavil knew all about it and deliberately set it up.

In keeping with the time and place in which the play is set, this is not what destroys their relationship but rather what allows them to marry, since being Gwendolyn's cousin means that Jack is now known to be of the proper social status to marry Gwendolyn.

An unusual example in True Blood. Vampire Bill finds out his human squeeze Portia Bellefluer is actually his great-great granddaughter, but Bill is the only one who's grossed out by this. Portia is more than willing to continue their relationship (and great sex), citing logical reasons why this shouldn't affect them (e.g. their genetic differences are about the same as with any other person and vampires can't produce children anyway, and most states are rethinking their cousin-marrying laws). Nonetheless, Bill is simply too uncomfortable to continue a relationship with her, so he glamours her into being utterly terrified of him just so she will leave him alone. The one upside is that Bill develops an Odd Friendship with Sheriff Andy, Portia's brother, due to his ability to act on Bill's legal behalf as his living heir (who isn't trying to have sex with him).

The major couple in The Beastmaster turn out to be cousins, though not one person ever remarks on this. Considering that she's described as his half-brother's cousin, maybe they're not blood cousins after all. She could always be the niece of the king's second wife.

In Juliet Marillier's novel Son of the Shadows, the protagonists' sister, Niamh, falls for a druid. When her family finds out, they marry her off in a strategic alliance without telling her that the reason they're so horrified is that the druid (Ciaran) is actually the son of her mother's evil stepmother, thus making him her half-uncle. Oops.
Their relationship is later vindicated though. Their daughter turns out to be the child of the prophecy, ending a longstanding feud with Britain over sacred ground. Unfortunately, Niamh never lived to see this, having been pushed off a cliff by the aforementioned evil stepmother when the child was a toddler.
When you look at their family tree, Liadan and Bran/The Chief are second cousins.

In Lone Star two characters that had dated in high school over their parents' STRONG objections reconnect as adults. At the time, they had assumed their parents objected out of racism as he is white and she is Hispanic (with the story taking place in the south). They later find a photograph of his dad and her mom and realize why their parents were so opposed to them dating, namely, that they're half-siblings with the sister being born out of an affair. But they're very much in love and she says that, due to complications in her last pregnancy, she can no longer have children. It's implied that they will stay together.

Happens not once, but twice in The Stone Dance of the Chameleon. Carnelian and Osidian meet in secret and have a passionate affair. Then it turns out that Osidian is the God-Emperor's son, making them cousins, since Carnelian's mother is the emperor's sister. Later, though, it turns out that Carnelian's father is actually the emperor himself — which is not atypical in the ruling house, Osidian's mother being the emperor's other sister. Making them, you know, brothers. In case you hadn't noticed, this is one messed up family.

Narrowly averted when Ste meets his estranged father Danny, and heavily flirts with him before finding out they are related.
Dodger turns out to be the father of his own twin sister's daughter - they had been separated as children, then met again and slept together as teenagers without being aware of each other's identity.

Midsomer Murders:
In one episode, a man had 'spread his seed far and wide'—you could hardly turn a corner without finding one of his bastards. One couple didn't meet until they were both in graduate school in Canada and got married, only later realizing they were half-siblings; she was squicked, he didn't mind. It's also been used in several other episodes.
In one, a woman learns the younger employee she's been sleeping with is actually her nephew and is violently sick. Said young man doesn't react as much, because he's still under the shock of learning that he's the product of Brother–Sister Incest.
One has a young woman almost hook up with a much-older man who is not only her father, but also her grandfather, and he sought her out on purpose. (It turns out to be part of some crazy eugenics scheme on his part.) Fortunately, Barnaby reaches her and informs her before anything happens.
Inverted in another episode where two childhood friends clearly like each other, but don't act on it because they believe they're half-siblings. (His parents were having trouble conceiving, and her father agreed to sleep with his mother to get her pregnant, but his mother's husband — who was okay with this — would be the father legally speaking. The kids were told when they were old enough to understand.) The investigation of that episode's murder leads to the revelation that his mother was also having an affair behind both men's backs, and her paramour was actually the kid's real father. Both friends are stunned, but admit they're sort of relieved they're not related after all, and the last scene heavily implies they've hooked up.

Family Guy:
Happens in a Halloween episode. Meg and her friends actually get invited to a costume party, and she goes dressed as a Slutty Cat, complete with a mask covering 75% of her face. One game of spin the bottle/seven minutes of heaven later, she's escorted to the closet with someone in an all-concealing Optimus Prime costume. When they're in there too long, the door is opened to reveal it being Chris... While they're half-naked on the ground making out. They didn't take it well, and lines like "We did so much!" imply there was more than just lips involved, though they seemed to have gotten over it by the end of the episode, apparently realizing that (given who they are) they were lucky to hook up with anyone at all that night.
In "Valentine's Day in Quahog", Stewie decides to go back in time to the 60s to see what love was like. During the trip, he falls for a girl and kisses her, only to find out it is really Lois after she is picked up by Carl Pewterschmidt. Stewie ends up vomiting all the way back to the present.

ABCs of Death 2: At the end of "Z is for Zygote", the husband is about to take his 'wife' to bed to make another baby after she tells him that she has lost the child she was carrying. If you believe that the child has taken over her mother's body and is wearing her skin (and this is not just a delusion of the mother), then this would be a case of incest.

In Zathura, Lisa immediately starts harboring a crush on the astronaut once she awakens after having been being frozen for most of the movie. He tries to brush off her advances, presumably because she's underage. Later in the film it's revealed that the Astronaut is actually her little brother Walter from an alternate future. She's... less than pleased. (Since it's a space-themed sci-fi film, this could debatably be considered a loose Star Wars reference.)

Higher Learning: While Shinji was stuck into the Twelfth Angel Asuka turned to Kaoru to have a shoulder to cry on. After he spent a while reassuring her, she felt something familiar on him and kissed him on impulse. Right away she felt guilty, got scared and ran away. At the next morning, Kaoru apologized and said he would resign if she wanted, but she said not and apologized in turn. They never brought it up again, not even when Kaoru confessed that he was her GRANDSON.

And then finds out that she is his half-sister, due to his mother's marital unfaithfulness. Holmes eventually tries to pursue a relationship, but Violet will have none of it and fakes her death to stop him forever.

How I Met Your Mother
Robin and Barney were on their way to their wedding when they discovered they were related through a mutual cousin named Mitch. By the end of the episode, it's revealed that Robin at least is not blood-related to Mitch, so they manage to avert this trope. They did spend the entire episode awkwardly avoiding any sort of contact though.
In an earlier episode, Barney is flirt-dancing with a girl in a disco. But he is only seeing her from behind, and she can't obviously see him at all in this position. Then she finally turns around - and Barney is recognizing his cousin. Quite disturbed, he tells Ted that they must never speak of this again, not even in the form of a funny "Do you remember that time when..."-style anecdote.

In Legends of Tomorrow, after many time traveling adventures, Martin Stein's memories start gradually changing (mostly incoherent) and he repeatedly sees visions of a beautiful woman who isn't his wife. At first, he sadly assumes that changes to history caused him to get together with a different woman. When he finally meets her in the present, it turns out the woman is his daughter (he didn't have any children before history changed).

ElfQuest:
It may never have been revealed to the characters, but Cutter once got it on with Kahvi during a pre-battle orgy, and Kahvi takes up with him while Cutter's family is lost in time, though it doesn't really work out. Much later, readers learned that Kahvi is the daughter of former Wolfriders chief Two-Spear. Cutter is a direct descendant of Two-Spear's half-sister, Huntress Skyfire, making Kahvi his cousin four times removed. Which, especially considering the small gene pool of the Wolfriders, isn't spectacularly close. And with Recognition preventing conception for any but good genetic combinations, the elves may not have an incest taboo.
Also, if one looks at Scouter/Tyleet's relationship, you'll realize they're 2nd cousins (Brothers Longbranch and One-Eye, Longbranch sires Nightfall, One-Eye sires Scouter, Nightfall has Tyleet, Scouter and Tyleet Recognize). It makes sense, however, that such in-pairings will happen in such a small tribe—so yes, Recognition probably does take care of the biggest problem with incest. Thankfully, however, we haven't been subjected to any closer pairings...

In Friends Ross and Monica, who are siblings, kissed when both were drunk at a party. However, Monica was half-asleep on a bed and didn't know who that kiss was with, and Ross thought she was Rachel under a pile of coats as it was in a dark room. They only realized it was them years later.

While the characters never know it, Birdy the Mighty Decode sees this: Nataru, the titular Birdy's love interest and childhood friend was, like her, created in lab as a Supersoldier—the same lab to be precise, which means there's a good chance Nataru and Birdy are brother and sister.

The 1920 silent film Within Our Gates has a flashback to the protagonist almost being raped by a white man. He then notices that she has the same distinctive birthmark on her chest that his daughter with his ex-wife did. Sylvia herself has quite a complex about the fact she's half-white.

The incest is averted in Havemercy, but just barely. Word of God has it that the authors had the brothers in question unrelated in an earlier draft, and deliberately included plenty of sexual tension and the possibility of a relationship between them. Later, they decided to take the relationship in a different direction and proceeded to erase all hints of UST between them. They were fairly unsuccessful, though, as most of the readers picked up on it anyway. Since the fact that they're brothers is hidden until near the end of the book, almost all of the readers were already shipping them by default by the time they found out. And once the ship has sailed, well, there's no calling it back to shore.

Happens in a Halloween episode. Meg and her friends actually get invited to a costume party, and she goes dressed as a Slutty Cat, complete with a mask covering 75% of her face. One game of spin the bottle/seven minutes of heaven later, she's escorted to the closet with someone in an all-concealing Optimus Prime costume. When they're in there too long, the door is opened to reveal it being Chris... While they're half-naked on the ground making out. They didn't take it well, and lines like "We did so much!" imply there was more than just lips involved, though they seemed to have gotten over it by the end of the episode, apparently realizing that (given who they are) they were lucky to hook up with anyone at all that night.

Kamen Rider Double has a strange example that's not quite playing with and may be a Relationship Writing Fumble or may have been intentional. Phillip is really the brother of Wakana but doesn't know it at the time. He's close to her and plans to leave town with her. Then it turns out that she's really his sister. Once the reveal is made there's no change in plans or attitudes at all (although things change for other reasons) and the audience is apparently supposed to accept that "I care for this girl I know" and "I care for my sister" were exactly the same thing all along. There isn't even a lampshading. Although, to be fair, he never really seemed to think of her that way. Or any other girl or guy for that matter.

Lady Dynamite has Maria dating a black boy during one of the Duluth scenes. Her dad is against it, so she gives him a speech about the evils of racism - that's when he explains that, during his youth, he slept with the boy's mother during a key party, and might be the boy's biological father.
