** In ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'', Cartman (as The Coon) mentors the New Kid again, but in a slighty more downplayed fashion. Scott Malkinson (as Captain Diabetes) plays this trope much straighter though.

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', the title character had ''three'' of these in his backstory: [[http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kido_Takayoshi Kogoro Katsura]] was the leader of the ''ishinshishi'' group Kenshin was a part of, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinsaku_Takasugi Shinsaku Takasugi]] was the one who brought him into the group in the first place, and Iizuka was his monitor/lookout. [[spoiler: Too bad that Takasugi died of illness, Iizuka was TheMole, and Katsura was lagter disgraced.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Rusl, the Ordon swordsman and Colin's father, is this to Link. It's stated that he was responsible for teaching Link everything he knows, and can be viewed as either a sample of this trope or a straight father figure. Their relationship is more depicted as this in the manga adaption.

* A rare female example of this trope: In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] ''FanFic/PointOfSuccession'' Naomi Misora is this to Light (who in this fic is a [[NewMeat rookie]] [[TheProfiler criminal profiler]] with a DarkAndTroubledPast). Naomi takes him under her wing at the {{FBI}} [[VitriolicBestBuds but she also frequently teases him in a "big sis" kind of way.]]

* ''Anime/DragonBall''
** Yamcha could be seen as this to Kid Goku early on, but defiantly not in the later series.
** Tien for Chiaotzu ''big time'' even without Master Crane, Chiaotzu still follows Tien with question and he dies (twice) Tien tends to go apeshit.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''
** Piccolo towards Gohan, though it mostly overlaps with ParentalSubstitute. Technically speaking Piccolo is only being four years older than Gohan at the start of Dragon Ball due to [[PlotRelevantAgeUp rapid aging]].
*** Krillin plays older brother/uncle figure to Gohan.
** Gohan is to kid Trunks in both timelines, future Gohan teaching and inspiring future Trunks and who Trunks still remembers long after his death. Teen Gohan does the same to Trunks in the main timeline as seen in the Buu saga, Bulma evens muses in ''Wrath of the Dragon'' that Trunks is jealous of Goten for having a older brother.
*** Tapion fills this role for kid Trunks as well, especially since he lost his own younger brother.



* Manga/{{Berserk}}, Guts is the big mentor for Ricket and Isidro. Especially for latter, Guts even gives him lessons though he overlaps with father figure.



* Manga/Naruto
** Itachi is a huge one for Sasuke until he killed their whole clan, [[spoiler: but since the clan was planning war anyway, Itachi was doing the right thing and above all he couldn't kill his younger brother Sasuke and left alive. Itachi still looked after Sasuke afterwards despite Sasuke believing he was evil, urging his younger to become stronger and ''be a better person'' (which Sasuke didn't listen to).
** 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.
** Madara towards his younger brother Izuna, though he was not above [[EyeScream taking his brother's eyeballs]].



** Also, from what we see in {{flashback}}s, it seems that Marco was this to Ace when he was first[[spoiler: captured by the Whitebeard crew and had trouble accepting [[AFatherToHisMen Whitebeard as his captain and father]].]]
** For that matter, the relationship between Ace and Luffy play this almost completely straight. Luffy obviously looks up to Ace, who's older, stronger, and more mature.

to:

*** Chopper also looks up to Zoro in this fashion.
** Also, Sanji, to Usopp. Though the former makes it clear at times he doesn't care as much about Usopp as he would Nami, Robin or Chopper, Sanji still cares for Usopp greatly and gives Usopp vital advice when he needs it. Sanji explicitly showed his care for Usopp when Luffy ''almost'' told him to leave the crew but was stopped by Luffy kicking him across the room and telling his captain not to say something "he couldn't take back", when Usopp did leave Sanji chased after him along with Nami and Chopper. During the battle at Enies Lobby, Sanji was the one to make Usopp see his self-worth by stating only ''he'' could save Robin by using his [[ImprobableAimingSkills skills]].
*** Sanji also gives Chopper lessons on being "a real man" and did so twice in Enies Lobby: when Robin was not telling the truth about her past he tells Chopper that "''a real man forgives a woman's lies''". And when Usopp was left beaten and bloody by Luffy, Sanji had to physically restrain Chopper
from helping Usopp, saying Luffy had already shown pity to Chopper in the face of defeat and Chopper would've stomped on Usopp's pride by treating his wounds.

** Though he was very bitter and angry with Franky, Iceberg still invoked this trope and gave Franky his biggest life lesson when Franky's battleships were used by the government to frame Tom Worker's... that whether you want it or not "weapon are made to hurt people". Iceberg also cried upon learning Franky was alive, saying he was grateful.


Added DiffLines:

** Charotte Katakuri is one for all his siblings, they all hold him in high regard and call him "big brother". Brulee especially gloats to Luffy about how boss her older brother is and she's mostly right.

%%* Literature/HarryPotter has Sirius Black, his godfather, and Remus Lupin. [[spoiler:Too bad that both of them die.]]

to:

%%* * Literature/HarryPotter has Sirius Black, his godfather, and Remus Lupin. [[spoiler:Too bad that both of them die.]]]]
** 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 SpiderMan started his superheroics at a young age and so can relate to the teenage heroes and their struggles.
