Annoying younger siblings of both genders tend to be tag-alongs, especially when they're not wanted. Typically, there will be something of an age gap between the protagonist and the annoying younger sibling, about three to six years in general. Too much of a gap and the sibling will lack the resources to be annoying enough. Too close and you're into SiblingRivalry territory instead. Taken to the extreme and you will see a CainAndAbel scene, or in worst, a case of SiblingMurder.

* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', Phineas (and to a lesser extent, Ferb) had originally been intended to be this to Candace. You can see remnants of this in the first episode, where Phineas is a lot snarkier and goes out of his way to antagonize his sister. But CharacterisationMarchesOn, and they're much more likely to want to help Candace out than annoy her.

* Jerome seems to feel this way about Poppy in the second season of ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''. She has his manipulative skills, and knew how to use them, which caused a bit of riff between them, at least until their relationship with their father brought them closer as well.

* Played with in ''Series/NickyRickyDickyAndDawn''. Dawn, who is the oldest (by four seconds as she brags) finds her brothers annoying at times.

* ''ComicBook/CharlesSoulesDaredevil'' has Blindspot sister, Hannah. Blindspot works a crappy job for crappy pay, barely has any time to sleep, and the two are illegal Chinese immigrants. Hannah goes out clubbing at random times, comes home late and wakes Blindspot up, and eats food he needs for work. Worse still, she ''expects'' this of him, because he's the older one.

*** Ryouta Misumi is... Shingo Tsukino reincarnated or something, considering how he acts towards [[TheHeroine Nagisa]]. He even mirrors Shingo's feelings towards his sister's [[TheSmartGirl smartass friend]] Ami, with his own feelings towards [[TheLancer Hon]][[TheSmartGirl oka]]. That's said, despite being so annoying, it doesn't stop Nagisa to be an Embarrassingly Doting Big Sister to him or to go full KnightTemplarBigSister.

** This is inverted with [[TheHeroine Saki's]] little sister Minori in ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar''. Probably to prove that Saki is not just an {{Expy}} to Nagisa, Saki being the CoolBigSis who loves her cute little sister and doesn't mind to share her bedroom with her. Minori can be whiny, but she's not annoying and she's definitely an innocent girl. Her innocence affects even on [[DarkMagicalGirl Kaoru]] [[EmotionlessGirl Kiryuu]].

*** [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Dark Precure]] is TheRival and archnemesis to [[TheSmartGirl Yuri]] and turns out to be her artificial younger sister. That makes her a very tragic example, as Yuri learns about the truth when Dark Precure is dying after their death battle.]]
** In ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'', [[TheLancer Kanade]] [[TheSmartGirl Minamino's]] brother Souta often acts as an annoying younger sibling, but he is a much milder example than Ryouta. Kanade's best [[TheHeroine Hibiki]] and Souta's friend [[TheChick Ako]] [[TagalongKid Shirabe]] sympathize with him and they ''know'' his annoying character. But Kanade is a little bit to blind to notice his nice side.

* Tsukino Shingo from ''Anime/SailorMoon''; he was actually quite tolerable and likable, but like many other extras, he vanished over the show's run. The AnnoyingYoungerSibling role was taken by Chibi-Usa, who immediately partnered with Shingo to make Usagi's life hell (posing as the main character's cousin, but actually her KidFromTheFuture), whose actual involvement in the plot (so much so that she got her own season) made her a little too annoying.
* In ''Manga/ServantXService'', Taishi sees his younger sister Touko as this. However, Touko was just ''very'' Type-A {{Tsundere}} about her BigBrotherWorship.

* Sorata's little sister Yuuko in ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'' visited Sorata at a most inopportune time (just when he was waiting for the results of his video game thesis) to pester him with questions regarding school life after some out-of-context conversation with their mother over Sorata's [[CloudcuckoolandersMinder relationship]] with Mashiro.

** Clemont's younger sister, Bonnie, isn't apparently as annoying to the viewers so far, but she is to him, being a sort of reverse Brock. She thinks it's her duty to find Clemont a wife and asks every girl they meet to marry him. That said, it may get old after a while, given generations last 3 to 4 years on average.

* Amy from Anime/AiNoWakakusaMonogatari is a major example to this.
** Meg's son and daughter also count to this.
