* In ''WesternAnimation/SongOfTheSea'', Ben associates his little sister Saoirse coming with [[DeathByChildbirth his mother leaving]], which causes his negative attitude towards her. Her birthday is on the anniversary of her death — literally overnight, his mother disappears and in her place is a little sister. He then deals with his grief by bottling it up and taking it out on Saoirse.

** The Sisters themselves have this dynamic with their "administrator", Last Order, who is physically younger than they are, and is hyperactive, impulsive, and can sometimes be rather irritating. Witness Misaka 10032's reaction to Last Order stealing her electro-vision goggles. Cocking her airsoft gun and going on the hunt.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' averts this in the present day - Edward and Alphonse are the most devoted brothers you could imagine - but it's seen in a short (manga only) story taking place in their young childhood. As a toddler, Ed was horrible to Al, smacking him with books and pushing him. Al wasn't really any more annoying than any other baby, but he was the trope to Ed due to the latter's misguided belief that their mother loved her younger son more. After their father talked to him about it, Ed got better.



* Keiko Sasahara in ''Manga/{{Genshiken}}'' is a teenaged example, her ''[[SubculturesInJapan gyaru]]'' lifestyle and her pompous attitude standing in stark contrast to that of her much more level-headed {{otaku}} brother Kanji. Her personality is also a deliberate subversion of the idealized {{moe}} portrayal of younger sisters.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': even though Fred and George are older than Ron, they still fill this trope for him. They ''are'' the {{Class Clown}}s of the entire school, after all. However, they seem to think of Ron as this trope as well. Percy, likewise, thinks the same of every sibling younger than him, with equally mutual feelings, and Percy is also seen as this by his two older brothers. Ginny is a more direct example forp Ron.

** During the events of ''The Lost Colony'', Artemis gets transported to a different dimension. When he comes back, he finds out what felt like just a few hours for him, was actually three years in our dimension. He comes back to find his family has ''expanded'' in those three years, as he now has two younger twin brothers: Miles and Beckett Fowl. He seems to love them-- as much as Artemis can show love, at least-- but they do make him feel a little frustrated when he's trying to instruct the three-year-olds in modern languages, and they seem more interested in worms and calling each other "simple-toon."

* The three youngest Bennet sisters in ''PrideAndPrejudice''. Mary is a KnowNothingKnowItAll, Kitty is an easily led [[TheDitz ditz]], and Lydia, the youngest and most annoying of all, is a shallow, air headed brat with no manners and no concern for anyone else.

* Averted in ''Literature/SummersAtCastleAuburn''. Corie has many traits that her proper older sister could find very irritating—curious, a tomboy, cheeky, nosy—but [[OneeSama Elisandra]] not only doesn't mind, she loves Corie specifically because of those things.

* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} has a younger brother, Donny, who is completely unlike him in almost every respect. Clean, honest, friendly, and well-liked by everybody (at least at first), Donny drives BJ crazy. He adores his big brother, however, and the most annoying thing about him is that he tries very hard to push for them to have a closer relationship.



* An interesting case in that the main character of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' used this exact trope to get his sister Jasmine aka Jazz to embrace her childhood (she thinks she is an adult in a teen's body) and subsequently get her to see a ghost [[ByTheEyesOfTheBlind only visible to children]]. He rarely at times act this way to Jazz prior to "The Ultimate Enemy", but that's because he's too old to be the typical annoying younger brother.

* Chris to Meg in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Stewie can be to both, although it is usually not as big of a deal because he's a baby. For example, Meg was only mildly annoyed when Stewie stole her gifts at her birthday party.
* Pistol Pete, younger sister of PJ in ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', both due to [[SiblingYinYang having radically different conduct and temperaments]] and their father's ParentalFavoritism which leads to her being allowed to take complete advantage of him.

** And Napoleon himself treated his younger siblings (especially the youngest, Caroline and Jérôme) as this, even more so when they convinced themselves that they had as much of a right as him to actually rule the puppet kingdoms he gave them. Given that Louis was a [[IllGirl rheumatic, paranoid mess]], Caroline was [[AmbitionIsEvil ambitious and manipulative]] and Jérôme earned the nickname "König Lustig" because he preferred to spend public funds and have numerous affairs, this was perhaps not entirely unjustified.

In her memoirs, Gemma recalls how Angelina and her school friends used to mock her because of her alleged visions, and many years later she was declared unfit to testify in her older sister's canonization process due to accusations of attempting profit from Gemma's reputation (and apparently, her relics.)
