* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' with Agon and Unsui. It's the younger twin that's perfect and gives the older one a raging inferiority complex. In terms of personality though, Unsui is definitely the aloof one.

* ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'': Though they haven't been shown interacting with each other so far, the fact that Carvin just flat out left his little sister Ilish when she needed him the most paints him as this.

* Suguru Aizawa of ''Manga/AreaNoKishi'' is often cold and aloof with his younger brother, Kakeru, and quite obviously disapproves of his brother's dream to become a professional [[FootyRules football]] trainer. It is hinted, however, that Suguru [[BigBrotherMentor may act this way]] because he knows that Kakeru is only truly happy when ''playing'' the sport he loves.

* ''Franchise/{{Tron}}: [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/46436 Endgame Scenario]]'': Played with when it comes to Tron and [[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Jet]]. Technically, they have the same father, which is why Jet considers Tron his older brother. Tron has zero idea what to make of Jet, however, as Programs do not have the same concept of family. This being post-''Film/TronLegacy'' [[spoiler: there's also all the psychological damage from "Rinzler" to factor in]]. Furthermore, despite Jet [[StopWorshipingMe hating his status]] [[AGodIAmNot as a User]] and doing everything he can to [[HideYourOtherness downplay it]], the fact he ''is'' one is a fact neither one can escape.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is technically the case for Alduin, the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse. He is the "firstborn" of Akatosh's (the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time and TopGod of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] pantheon) which includes all other dragons and [[GodInHumanForm Dragonborn]], and he's by no means a friend to any of them.

* In ''Franchise/BlazBlue'', Ragna was this to Jin during their childhood. [[UnreliableNarrator Or at least, Jin viewed him as this]].

to:

* In ''Franchise/BlazBlue'', plays with this trope a lot with the three main characters. Ragna was originally very close with both of his younger siblings Jin and Saya when they were children, but once Saya grew ill and Jin grew especially needy, he distanced himself from the latter to tend to the former. Naturally, Jin started to resent Saya because of this, making ''him'' this trope toward her. Fast forward to the present timeline where Ragna & Jin during are adults and their childhood. [[UnreliableNarrator Or at least, Jin viewed him as this]].relationship is especially estranged due to their sister being taken from them when they were children. Complicating things is how Noel looks ''very'' much like their sister due to being a clone of her, which causes all of their old issues to resurface.
