We all love our brothers and sisters but they do have a special way of getting under your skin in a way that nobody else can. They’ve seen you at your highs and your lows. They know your deep dark secrets. And they most likely have a plethora of embarrassing photos and stories to hold against you.

Siblings pulling pranks on one another is basically just a way for them to show their love. We’ve collected some of the most hilarious sibling moments that we could find online. You might even take some inspiration jokes to play on your own brothers or sisters.

Making a Scene on your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life that you will hopefully cherish forever. What could make it more memorable than your sister showing up in a T-Rex costume? Apparently, the bride gave her bridesmaids the freedom to choose whatever they wanted to wear to the wedding.

Her sister took that very literally and decided to wear a T-Rex costume to the event. We hope the bride had a sense of humor about the situation. Or else she’ll be looking back on wedding photos with a dinosaur in them with bitterness for a long time.

Little Sister to the Rescue

While the little sister didn’t mean to, she actually pulled a pretty good one over on her older sister. The 11 year old was commenting on her sister’s work’s Instagram to try to convince them to give her a raise. After all, what are sisters for?

Unknowingly, she pulled a pretty good prank on her sister who got nervous when she was called into HR. Overall, a harmless prank. And we love to see siblings who have each other’s backs! We’re impressed that the 11-year-old was so persistent.

Best Uncle Ever

Being an aunt or uncle means you get to spoil your sibling’s kids without bearing any responsibility. It’s the best job in the world! This guy got to simultaneously become his nephew’s hero while annoying his sister. Win, win!

His nephew loves the new toys and so Uncle Bryan gets brownie points with him. Plus, he gets to annoy his sister without lifting a finger. Isn’t this kind of the job of any sibling? Mission accomplished.

Help!

You would think weddings would be off-limits for pranks between siblings, but really there is no time that is off-limits for siblings to play a practical joke on each other. The brother of the groom knew that the bride and groom would kneel at the altar on their wedding day.

So, he decided to leave a funny little note on the bottoms of the groom’s shoes. He wrote “help” across them! We hope the entire family was able to have a laugh about it and that the bride had a sense of humor. We must admit it is a pretty good prank to pull on your brother.

Baby Photos

Siblings have access to all of your most embarrassing pictures that you would rather forget. They will make it their mission to never let you live down those embarrassing moments from the past.

This sibling came up with a genius idea for how to remind their sister of a less-than-flattering childhood photo. She printed it out onto a mug as a birthday gift. How thoughtful! Now, she will never be able to forget this picture exists. At least she can laugh about it!

The First Look

It’s bad luck to see the bride in her dress before the wedding day, so lots of couples have the ceremonious “first look” where the groom can finally see his beautiful bride-to-be! But imagine you’re ready to turn around and see the love of your life when you’re met with your brother in her gown!

Even with a tiara to top it all off, his brother is definitely not the bride he was planning to see. But this makes for one of our absolute favorite sibling pranks we’ve seen so far. Hopefully their laughs helped the groom shake off some pre-wedding nerves!

A Gift you Have to Work for

This person got their little brother a huge LEGO set for Christmas. While that is very thoughtful, they had to make sure it wasn’t too easy for their brother to open it. They wrapped every single tiny LEGO set piece individually.

So when his brother opened the box ready to play with the set, he was met with hundreds of little pieces to unwrap. But who really loses in this prank? Because the sibling had to take the time to wrap each of those little pieces. Some pranks take some real commitment, obviously.

They Have to Learn Young

You’re never too young to start pulling pranks on your sibling. It’s as if kids are born with an instinct to play jokes on one another. In this hilarious example, the little sister decided to steal the stool right out from under her brother.

She looks totally innocent but we think she knows what she’s doing. Big brother looks pretty distressed so we’re sure he got back at her somehow. You really never are too young to start playing mischievous games with your siblings.

Ruthless Toothless

You can always count on your siblings to make you smile, especially in the hard times. This lady had a tooth situation that she couldn’t get fixed during the pandemic. You would think that the bright side would be that she could wear a mask to cover the missing tooth in her smile.

But her sibling had other plans. He made her a custom mask that proudly showed the gap in her teeth. There’s very little siblings love more than to embarrass each other. But if the goal was to make his sister smile, mission accomplished.

Chocolate Surprise

These siblings teamed up to pull a pretty evil prank on their brother. They took brussel sprouts and wrapped them in chocolate to make them look like Ferrero Rocher chocolates. They even went so far as to wrap the chocolates in the classic Ferrero Rocher gold foil.

Put all together, they look almost exactly like the regular ones! Imagine receiving these as a gift and being excited to bite into a chocolate only to be met with vegetables. Yuck! They should definitely expect a prank war coming their way after this one.

The Moment Right Before the Prank

This parent caught the moment just before her daughter went to prank her son. The kid is looking down the barrel of the hose and his big sister is holding the hose kinked so that no water is spraying.

But you can see it written all over her face that she can’t wait to let the hose fly and surprise her brother with a face full of hose water. What are big sisters for if not to pull pranks on their little brothers? They have to learn somehow!

Almost a Sweet Gift

This woman received what she thought was a sweet gift from her sister with a little hidden message on the inside. On the surface, it’s a beautiful ring with the two sisters’ birthstones in it with an infinity design. Cute!

Bored Panda

But she couldn’t possibly resist adding a little joke onto the inside of the ring. She got “okayest sister” engraved on the inside just to make sure her sister didn’t get a big head about the gift. These are our favorite kinds of sibling pranks.

Surprise!

This is one of the more creative sibling pranks we’ve seen. This guy couldn’t pass up an opportunity to remind the entire family of the time his brother was arrested so he had to get the mugshot put on mugs.

Bored Panda

But what makes it even more genius is that the mugs appear to be normal black cups until you pour hot liquid in them. Then the mugshot is revealed. This is a pretty creative way to never let your brother forget his embarrassing moments and regrets.

The Key to Motivation

Siblings always seem to have interesting ways of encouraging each other. This brother wanted to push his sister to graduate with honors so he incentivised her by putting his pride on the line.

Bored Panda

He promised that if she succeeded in graduating with honors he would wear a dress to her graduation. And not just any dress! He promised to wear a matching dress with her. It looks like she succeeded and he kept his promise. There’s nothing like the notion of embarrassing your brother to motivate you to work hard.

Toys Not Included

A good brother or sister will get their sibling a toy for their birthday. But a clever brother or sister will get them something more useful. You know when you buy a toy and it says “batteries not included”?

This is just the opposite. If this gift is for a younger sibling we can assume that they were none too pleased when they found batteries instead of that new toy they were wanting.

The Milk’s Gone Bad

These kinds of sibling pranks make life a little more exciting. The note makes you think the milk is old and it seems like they’re just warning their sibling against using it on their cereal.

But they actually dressed the milk up to look like a robber. Very bad indeed. If this was part of a prank war, we wonder how the sibling retaliated.

You’re Stuck!

This prank made the rounds on the internet and tons of people shared their versions of this pranking video. You set it up like you’re going to show your sibling a magic trick or pretend like you’re going to make something cool happen.

Have them place their hands face down on the table and place full glasses of water on either hand. Now they’re stuck! Eventually they’ll realize that they can’t move without spilling all the water everywhere. Gotcha!

Heavy Sleeper

This is what you get when you fall asleep in your sister’s room. Apparently the younger sister wanted to sleep in her big sister’s room. Cute! But the older sister was not too happy about her parents letting her invade her privacy.

So, she chose to retaliate in an interesting way. She slowly piled bread on top of her sister’s face all while she was asleep. It looks like she got the entire loaf of bread piled and she still didn’t wake up! This is an excellent prank for a heavy sleeper.

Who’s Watching?

This looks like a prank that a parent played on their kids but it is just too good not to share. They changed the names on the Netflix accounts to reflect the roles that the family members actually play.

The “guy who pays for account” must be the father and the 2 parasites are what we commonly refer to as children. This is a good one from dear old dad and it’s all in good fun. The problem is, the kids can change the account names as well so how will they retaliate?

Sweet Revenge

One of the most common things that siblings bicker about is who’s borrowing what and if they asked or “stole” the item. This is one way to exact revenge on the sister who stole your $20!

He made folders on her computer and hid her school project in one of them, essentially holding it hostage. It’ll take her forever to find the project! I guess the lesson is to not steal from your brother, or be prepared for the consequences if you do.

A Soda Explosion Surprise

What happens when you mix mentos with soda? You get an explosion. With that knowledge in mind, this is a great way to prank your sibling if they love soda. Freeze some mentos in ice cube trays.

When the ice melts down the mentos will mix with the soda and they’ll be met with a soda explosion to the face.

The Scare Tactic

This is one way to absolutely terrify your sibling. And it’s incredibly simple to do so. Print out a scary photo (I personally would choose the girl fromThe Ring). Also, print out a hand so you can make it look like there’s someone peeking from behind a curtain or door.

If you play your cards right you will have a perfect set up for your sibling. They’ll come home and go to sleep only to see something awfully scary peeking around the corner at them. Another genius prank!

Joining Forces

The only thing better than a sibling prank war is when siblings join together to prank other people together. After all, two is better than one. These men decided to pull a prank on everyone at the Apple store.

They took different photos on each phone and ipad in the store and set them as the screen savers. Anyone who walked into the store that day was in for a big surprise.

Perfect Poses

What we’re learning here is that when your sibling offers to take a photo of you you should be suspicious. This woman wanted a cool photo of her doing some yoga poses out in nature. Should be pretty, right?

Wrong. This sibling positioned their sister right in front of a fountain and the result is this perfectly timed photo. We’re still impressed by the yoga pose regardless!

An Uncleanly Wedding Guest

Apparently this brother promised his sister years ago that when she got married he would bring a llama to the wedding. She never thought he would actually deliver on that promise, but here we are.

He brought a real life llama to the wedding all dressed up and prepared to accompany the wedding party down the aisle. She doesn’t look all too happy for the added guest, but the brother sure looks pleased!

Nicholas Cage is Caged

We’re not sure how people come up with these creative pranks but we sure are impressed! This sibling thought to cut up tiny photos of Nicholas Cage’s face and freeze them in ice cubes.

Their sibling will be met with the many faces of the actor the next time they go to enjoy a cold beverage. Points for creativity! Nic Cage is probably one of the very last things you would expect to find in your ice cubes.

Little Brother Gets in on the Pranks

Kids are imaginative, that’s for sure. And, usually it’s something that parents want to encourage. But when little bro learns what pranks are, everyone in the house should be worried.

This little brother somehow managed to flip glasses of water upside down on the counter. And he did this with 11 glasses! We wonder if they just left the glasses for a while to avoid cleaning the mess.

The Hostage in a Prank War

These brothers have a prank war going on where they send this skeleton back and forth. One brother will hide the skeleton in the other brother’s stuff and then the brother will send it back. It’s hidden somewhere new each time.

The poor skeleton is tied up and asking for help! This time he ended up in the trunk of one of the brothers’ cars. We wonder where he will end up next time.

Sister or Sloth?

The best pranks take some thought and time to put together. This sibling put some real time and energy into their prank. They replaced every single photo of their sister in the home with an image of a sloth!

As you can see, there were tons of family photos that now display a sloth! We wonder how long it took their sister to notice that their face was looking pretty different in the family photos.

Stop Trapping Your Brother!

If there’s one thing that will get the kids up bright and early, it’s an opportunity to prank their siblings! This brother woke up super early so he could put his prank in place before his brother woke up.

He turned his brother’s bunk bed into a cage and basically trapped him. He will be awfully confused when he wakes up and we’re sure mom and dad won’t be too pleased. But at least it got them up early!

Welcome Home

This brother thought he would be sweet and drive his sibling home from the airport. But, of course, he had to add some fun to the usual airport pickup. He made a sign that says, “Welcome home from rehab”.

Now, if the sibling was actually returning from rehab we have to ask why he made that information public (to embarrass his sibling of course). But if their sibling wasn’t returning from a facility, it makes this prank even funnier. His smile says it all — he is proud of his creativity.

Have Some Ice Cream… Psych!

When you’re craving a sweet treat on a hot day, ice cream is the perfect fix. We can assume that this person agreed and decided to use that to their advantage. They basically ate the entire tub of ice cream and saved a sliver on the side.

Source: reddit

This way, when their brother or sister went to have a bowl, they would think the ice cream tub was full just to be met with disappointment when they open the tub. Kind of mean, but still creative.

Where’s Your Sister?

The youngest sibling is almost always going to get the brunt of the pranks. It’s the way of the world! These two older sisters decided to play a prank on their little sister and on their mom as well.

They built this little fortress around their youngest sister. When mom came in asking where she was, they revealed this secret location. It looks like the little sister might have been a willing participant so this one makes us smile.

The Foil Prank: A Classic

The foil prank is an old classic that has been done time and time again in many different ways. But, it’s a classic for a reason. It never gets old! This one became really popular in dorm room in college.

But siblings across the internet have also joined in the fun! This person was incredibly thorough when they tin foiled this room. Even the pillows are covered. We can only imagine how long this took to undo.
