Everyone is Related occurs when one character is/turns out to be a close relation of another character, something that's either established or comes as a surprise. This trope also happens, and perhaps more often, in crossovers.
General Examples of this Trope

- The zine Brotherly Love has the premise that Daniel is Jack's 4-year old half-brother.
