* [[BigBad Zeref]] from ''Anime/FairyTail'' fits this to T. He is way smarter, refined and talented than his younger brother [[spoiler: Natsu]] being considered the greatest genius that his academy as ever seen. He is also stronger and faster than him as he is the stongest wizard to have ever live and always has a calm and dignified expression on his face.

He is also stronger and faster than him as he is the stongest wizard to have ever live and always has a calm and dignified expression on his face. [[spoiler:That said, his entire motivation revolves around Natsu. He became what he is in the first place due to trying to revive Natsu. His later goal is to go back in time so that he can reclaim the happy home life he once had with his baby brother and their parents.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the older Diamonds were this to their youngest sister Pink Diamond, treating her as an annoyance and later reducing her to a PuppetKing when they believed she couldn't manage her first and only colony on Earth. It got so bad that she [[spoiler:faked her own death to become Rose Quartz for good, believing the other Diamonds would lose interest in Earth since she thought they didn't care about her. Then it turned out that her sisters ''did'' love her a lot and were heartbroken and enraged over her apparent assassination, with dire consequences for Earth and the Crystal Gems and Steven.]]

* Fugil to main character Lux in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle''. Fugil was the first prince while Lux was the seventh, yet unlike the rest of his family he treated Lux kindly and encouraged him. Then they both rebelled against the family, with Lux defeating the army [[ThouShallNotKill without killing any of them]]... only for Fugil to massacre the army, the nobles and the rest of the royal family. He then called Lux's idealism foolish and disappeared. In the present of the series, he treats Lux (and everyone else) with disdain, and is arguably the strongest Drag-Knight. [[spoiler:Played with, given later revelations that Fugil isn't actually part of the family and has actually been supporting Lux the entire time.]]

** Dycedarg Beoulve of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' ''initially'' appears to be an extreme case of this toward his younger half-brother [[TheHero Ramza,]] while the middle brother, Zalbag, plays the more mild example of the trope. This gets subverted ''hard.'' [[spoiler: Ultimately, Dycedarg shows himself to truly be a merciless and uncaring man who likely cares nothing for his family beyond what his name and lineage grant him. Zalbag plays the trope more straight, with it in part playing into his FatalFlaw]]

* ''Manga/BloomIntoYou'': In the SchoolPlay [[ShowWithinAShow that the main characters put on]], the main character, an amnesiac high school student who hears three completely different accounts about herself, apparently is one to her younger brother. He says that they had the same mother but different fathers, and tells his sister that she kept her distance from the rest of the family. He's somewhat bitter about it, noting that if she acted that way at home, she probably really was a cold and distant person, but holds out hope that they can reconcile once she gets home from the hospital. On the other hand, the main character suggests that she acted distant in order to keep the peace around her family, and even though her brother doesn't think she remembers his birthday, it's one of three important dates to her that, when added up, makes her cell phone password, so it's suggested that she may have cared more than she let on.

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Even though they are twins, Killer is very distant and rather cold towards his sister Killdra.

* Lelouch vi Britannia of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is initially an inversion, being warm and caring towards his little sister Nunnally, but later on, he dons a cold JerkassFacade for the sake of ''world peace.'' [[spoiler:Poor Nunnally only learns his motives when he's dying.]] He's also an interesting take on this trope, since he's the ''main character''.

* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', Miho's older sister Maho appears to treat her coldly with the only thing she says to her in their first on-screen encounter being "I didn't think you'd still be doing tankery." [[spoiler:It turns out that this is a JerkassFacade on her part, brought on by the pressures related to being Nishizumi heiress, and her reason for trying so hard to be a good heiress is so that Miho will be free to live and do tankery the way she wishes]].

** Neji Hyuga starts out as an Aloof Older ''Cousin'' of Hinata's, thinking she's too weak to inherit the clan, seeing her determination to improve herself as foolish, and having a long-standing grudge against her side of the family but has a HeelFaceTurn. Hinata even addresses him as she would an older brother (appending "[[JapaneseSiblingTerminology -nii-san]]" to his name).
