If he and TheHero are romantically involved, or just have enough HoYay or ShipTease, this can become LoverAndBeloved (or a MentorShip if one party is of the opposite gender). Differs from AloofBigBrother in that the Big Brother Mentor doesn't have to be a ''literal'' big brother and actually gives a damn about his "little siblings" (Or shows it quite more often than a merely emotionally repressed AloofBigBrother). Compare with the SternTeacher, tough and strict but loved by everyone. Not to be [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour confused with]] DracoInLeatherPants.

** To elaborate it's worth noting that this is a major difference in Sirius' portrayal in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Book 4]] and [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Book 5]]. In Book 4, he is still on the run and very sharp about potential danger, and acts mostly responsibly toward Harry. He constantly reminds him to lie low, stay out of trouble, and not take risks to see him. Harry on several occasions in [=GoF=] expresses relief that he is nearby. In ''Order of the Phoenix'', Sirius, as noted by Hermione, begins to behave more recklessly, in part because he is stuck at his childhood home, subject to taunts about his lack of "usefulness," and there are several hints that he is not mentally stable. It is in ''Order of the Phoenix'' that Harry begins to worry about Sirius doing something risky to see him, that Molly accuses Sirius of [[ReplacementGoldfish being unable to tell Harry and James]] apart, and that Sirius becomes careless about his disguise.

* Franchise/SpiderMan tends to act like for the younger heroes, especially those that feel they can't really trust the adult superheroes. A large reason is that Spidey started his superheroics at a young age and so can relate to the teenage heroes and their struggles.

As a result, alot of the young superheroes look up to him and their struggles. he in turn tries his best to [[http://atopfourthwall.tumblr.com/post/127479759428 advise them on what he has learned as being a former teenage superhero.]]

* Clint Barton has elements of this towards Harry in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm''.

* Clint Barton has elements of this towards Harry in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm''.''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm,'' teaching him how to fly a Quinjet, sparring with him, and basically being the cool big bro that Harry never had. Clint takes this role in large part because he's the youngest Avenger and can relate best to Harry.[[note]] [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve]] is younger than Clint by a couple years, not counting his time in the ice, but he's such a LivingLegend that it takes Harry, who's at first quite shy, longer to connect.[[/note]]

** Kakashi relationship with Obito and his male students: Naruto and Sasuke can be seen as this. Some fans believe this strongly since Minato (Naruto's dad) looked after Kakashi like a son making him a metaphorical big brother, but since Minato is dead Kakashi can aslo been seen as father figure to Naruto.
