* Simon Tam to River in ''{{Series/Firefly}}''. He is kind of a doting big brother but he also has to extend that role far beyond what that would normally imply due to the extreme situation. And he never punches her.

* Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} to practically any younger female character. Most notably [[KidSidekick Kid Sidekicks]] Jubilee and Kitty Pryde. In ''Wolverine'' #16, a reporter is going around asking people what they think of Wolverine. Jubilee says he's an amazing big brother. Kitty takes it a little further -- she admits that she'll probably never get married because she always compares the guys she meets to Wolverine, and they never measure up.
* ComicBook/{{Gambit}} is this to Wolverine's clone/daughter ComicBook/{{X 23}} in her solo self titled series. Although they are on more equal terms than some of the other examples.
