* It's retroactively revealed in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' that the titular character seemed to have been one of these to Niles during Frasier's nine-year run on ''{{Cheers}}'': although Niles wasn't actually mentioned until ''Frasier'' premiered, a flashback during ''Frasier'''s third season to the time gap between the finale of ''Cheers'' and the pilot of ''Frasier'' implies Niles was vaguely bitter that Frasier ran off to Boston and abandoned him for at least a decade, subjecting Frasier's presence on ''Cheers'' to a mild CerebusRetcon. Admittedly, it's fairly easy to connect the dots and come to the same conclusion without the implicit support of that flashback given Frasier and Niles' thick-as-thieves sibling relationship (which was ''not'' new CharacterDevelopment; they were like that since toddler age) as opposed to a more typical friendly-but-separated sibling relationship, Frasier being removed enough to not even mention Niles' existence in front of the cameras for nine years seems bizarrely OutOfCharacter in retrospect (on ''Frasier'', Frasier would probably be hard-pressed to stay away from Niles for nine ''days'').

* In ''AngelSanctuary'', Michael's Aloof Big Brother is ''Lucifer'', though most of this is told in the backstory and we only get to see the aftereffects.

* Lion El'Johnson, primarch of the Dark Angels chapter of SpaceMarines in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', was very [[TheStoic stoic]] and a bit of a paranoid and secretive loner to boot. Indeed, he was the oldest of the primarchs, and was a real no-nonsense guy in contrast to his rival and later [[VitriolicBestBuds best friend]], [[BoisterousBruiser Leman Russ]]. Many of his character traits were inherited to his chapter, and the Dark Angels tend to work alone to maintain [[TreacheryCoverUp dark secrets spanning all the way to the Horus Heresy]]. Though this is subverted in that Lion wasn't older than Russ by more than a few days, if at all (since the Primarchs are all transhuman clones of [[GodEmperor the same guy]]).

* 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.

Added DiffLines:
* When you have a [[spoiler: Adopted]] brother like Kerlongsj who as man, has earned the respect of several Infinite Stratos pilots, including the Brunhilde, you would think that Anaton has a lot of inferior problems. Strangely enough, in [FanFic/InfiniteStratosToTheOtherEndOfTheWorld], he and Kerlongsj aren't like that. They have a good relationship and don't seem to be bothered by the huge gaps between them. Kerlongsj knows Anaton will get close to him.

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', we have Killua's highly stoic eldest brother, Illumi.older brother Illumi seems to give off this impression. The truth is that Illumi is incredibly protective of Killua; so protective, in fact, that he [[BigBrotherBully refuses to let him live his own life]], believing that it is his job as {{The Dutiful Son}} to make sure that Killua inherits the {{Family Business}}[[ProfessionalKiller assassination]].

She's not this trope. Being the older sister with some aloof, very high standard attitudes is not automatically this trope. The sibling dynamic is completely wrong. She's a motherly figure with very high standards and Weiss worships her.
[[folder:Web Animation]] * Zigzagged with Winter Schnee from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. She can act coolly toward Weiss, judging her harshly on her tournament performance and snapping at her for asking questions or saying the wrong thing. However, she also shows concern for her, wanting to know that she's healthy and has a personal life. [[/folder]]
