Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Rokuro is one towards his younger twin, Nanakuma, as Rokuro is far less emotionally demonstrative. He doesn't hate Nanakuma like [[CainAndAbel Nanakuma hates him]] but in reality Rokuro's cold [[TheStoic stoicism]] only contributes to Nanakuma's [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex insecurities]] and anger.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/MotherPanic'', the titular character's brother is considerably older than her (he was in law school before she was in high school), so the two of them were never really close as siblings.

** Xander from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' plays with this. While he does care about all of his siblings, best shown in his supports with Leo and Camilla, he also admits that he invokes this trope a bit in order to take care of all his princely duties.

* Yuuya Kizami of ''CorpseParty'' has a bad relationship with his older ''sister'', Haruna, particularly when he was a child. A flashback has him insist that if ''he'' had a younger sibling, he'd be much better than his sister and brother (who he's implied to not be very fond of, either). [[spoiler:Haruna might have been a bit nicer had Yuuya not been so interested in ''torturing animals''. And his entire encounter with Yuka is good example of why he should ''never'' be allowed to have a younger sibling.]]

* Sesshoumaru from ''Manga/InuYasha''. He seems to be the only one better at fitting this trope than Uchiha Itachi. The only one more daunting than Sesshoumaru in this manga (including Naraku) is...Sesshoumaru's ''mother''.

* Subverted to hell and back by Clari Net of ''ViolinistOfHameln''. In his introduction, he's set up to be this type of character--bishounen (ridiculously so), glasses, BadAss, haughty, serious, et cetera--and it becomes plucky lad Trom Bone's great ambition to earn Clari's respect. However...then we're introduced to Clari's ''actual'' little sister. To say that he fawns over her is a gross understatement. The other characters are left gobsmacked and so is the audience.

* The extended universe of DoctorWho gives us Irving Braxiatel, a brilliant, conniving, charming, and well-dressed Time Lord who also happens to be the Doctor's older brother. Given the number of complex manipulations and strategies he can juggle simultaneously, he is likely as intelligent or even more intelligent than the Doctor himself.

* In-universe, The Other Guy to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. He has a couple of PetTheDog moments, but mostly he's the "dark overlord that controls [him]" and doesn't care about his problems.

* [=Matt/Yamato=] from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' is an odd example of the trope, as he seems to try to be a more typical case of this, but gets flustered and angry so easily that he may as well kiss the "aloof" part (which he pulls more from being a loner) goodbye.
** One could argue it's because of Matt's young age that he's mostly trying to ''act'' aloof in order to be seen as cool (many kids/young teens adopt "personas" based off of fictional characters they admire until they themselves figure out who they really are as people), but he genuinely cares about his baby brother too much to follow through with the trope's characteristics of being detached and insensitive to T.K.'s well-being.

* 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''.
** And Lelouch himself (though perhaps Nunners and by extension the whole of the Britannian royal family) have this in the form of Prince Shneizel
