* In the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series, BJ takes to referring to Lydia as "Wifey-Babes."
* ''The Sanctuary Telepath'': John calls his [[SiblingTeam sister]] Janine "sissy", who affectionally responds by calling him [[InsultOfEndearment "you idiot"]], especially when he does something self-sacrificing and/or irresponsible. Janine calls Helen "little sis", and James gets the occasional "darling". John and James both call each other "old boy".
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/PoundAndPumpkinCakesAdventuresAndMisadventuresInPottyTraining'' has Mr and Mrs Cake call each other "sugar plum" and "honey bun".
* There are a number of these in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'', but the most prominently used one is ''ma da'vhenan.'' It's Dalish for "my little heart," and it's the closest Mahanon can get to calling his [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition fellow Inquisitor]] Victoria "my little sister" in that language.

** [[TheNicknamer Varric]] from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has nicknames for everyone (except [[SergeantRock Aveline]], whom he apparently fears too much for this, and Hawke), but the closest examples to this trope would probably be "Daisy" for [[MoralityPet Merrill]] and "Sunshine" for [[LikeBrotherAndSister Bethany]].

** Alphonse Elric calls his elder sibling "Brother" at least as often as he uses his actual name. (Though this is as much a typically Japanese mark of respect for an elder relative as it is a token of affection.)
