** Trafalgar Law had one in Rocinante aka Corazon, who showed him genuine empathy when he was brought into the Doquixote Family by Doflamingo. [[spoiler: After Rocinante's death at the hands of his own brother Doflamingo, Law wears to make Doflamingo '''pay''' for it.]]



* Though Tomohiko Yamada of ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'' mostly subverts this, he has his moments of wise advice for his younger sister... [[{{Hikikomori}} before going back to his room and tuning out the world around him.]]

If he and TheHero are romantically or ShipTease involved, or just have enough HoYay, 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.

This character is the hero's good friend. The hero can fool around with him, go to the bar with him for a drink and talk about some good old man-business with him. Additionally, the character, being older (though mental age matters more than physical age) and wiser than the hero, also acts as a mentor to the hero in times of need or advice.

[[CoolBigSis Female variants of this trope]], or examples where the protege is female, are much less common but not unheard of.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'', Klein saw both Dieck and the dead Prince Mildain as such. [[spoiler: In both cases, Klein's supports can potentially have him find his missing "brothers" serving in Roy's army: Dieck left to not cause the Reglay House trouble, while Mildain took the identity of Elphin to evade the noblemen who wanted him dead.]]
** ''Binding Blade'' prequel ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' gives us [[BrokenAce Harken]] playing this role to [[NaiveNewcomer Lowen]]. And in the past, [[TeamDad Marcus]] was this to him.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', you can build this link between [[HotBlooded Ross]] and Gerik, or between [[TeamDad Seth]] and [[NiceGuy Franz]]. [[BadassBookworm Saleh]] is already this to [[ChildMage Ewan.]] [[TheAce Ephraim]]'s supports with his own sister [[LadyOfWar Eirika]] and with [[BadassAdorable Myrrh]] also suggest these dynamics (with some bits of IncestSubtext in Eirika's case).
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[ChildMage Ricken]] views [[NiceGuy Prince Chrom]] as this ever since he saved his life and protected him from bullies. In one of the DLC's, [[ReligiousBruiser Libra]] has a talk with [[SociopathicHero Henry]] that gives ''very'' strong vibes of the trope as well.

* Reiner Braun from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. He's seen as something of an older brother to the entire 104th Trainee Corps, and becomes an important influence on [[TheHero Eren]], helping shape him into a capable soldier. It ends up resulting in [[spoiler: Eren noting that one of Reiner's mistakes as TheMole was [[NiceJobFixingItVillain teaching]] him to fight]].
