* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': Between ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} and (adopted) little brother Tim Drake -- one issue had Tim believed to have been killed by the Joker when a mass Arkham escape was in progress. Nightwing then beats the Joker to death with his bare hands, it didn't help that the Joker decided to bring up how he had also killed Jason Todd (another one of Nightwing's adopted little brothers). The Joker was just lucky Batman was around to revive him.

** Just in general Yuuya seems to have this instinct for a lot of characters, even an older teacher at some point. He'll TakeTheBullet or patiently talk someone through things and let go of one of his hard-kept secrets to help them. Yuuya wants to protect and help lots of people, it's just that Sakuya takes priority. Some fans call him "everybirdie's senpai" for this reason.

** Miles Edgeworth, despite being a serious character who doesn't show much emotion, softens up considerably around young women, especially gifted teenagers like Ema Skye who may blunder at times but are clearly serious about their work. This is probably because his own little sister, Franziska von Karma, is too proud to let him be the big brother.
