* {{Inverted|Trope}} in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. [[CoolBigSis Yang]] has more than once expressed a lot of pride at her younger sister Ruby's idealism and wish to [[WeHelpTheHelpless help the helpless]].

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Eddy talks up his [[TheGhost absent]] older brother a lot, although this is generally a feeble attempt to make himself look better that shows him to be [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter rather envious]]. [[spoiler:When we finally meet him, Eddy's brother turns out to be [[FeetOfClay a loser with a crappy job]] and a very cruel BigBrotherBully. Eddy admits everything he said about his brother was wishful thinking.]]

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', where the [[CoolBigBro laid-back and popular]] Sans thinks his [[ManChild immature]], [[AllLovingHero overly-nice]] and [[CloudCuckooLander incredibly]] [[{{Keet}} dorky]] younger brother Papyrus is the coolest guy he knows. He never wastes an opportunity to tell other people about it, will be mildly offended if you disagree with him on the subject, and constantly puts effort into to keeping him happy despite [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling how often he teases him]]. Reading between the lines of the game's [[DevelopersForesight ridiculously extensive]] StoryBranching reveals that he actually has a pretty justified reason for this: [[spoiler:Papyrus was the only thing he was able to keep after a [[MysteriousPast vague]] but clearly [[DarkAndTroubledPast catastrophic]] event or series of events took away everything else he cared about. After spending what is implied to be a very long time trying to get them back, Sans eventually just gave up and Papyrus has been his LivingEmotionalCrutch ever since.]]

* While the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' is pretty rife with BrotherSisterIncest, the one who takes the ultimate cake of the best example of this trope is probably [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Princess Raquesis of Nordion]]. She started the trend of 'princess worshipping her big brother way too much' with her extreme infatuation with her brother Eldigan. She is this so much that she declared that she'll never marry unless she finds someone in a caliber as high as Eldigan (granted, her wannabe suitor Elliot is a complete loser), and the mercenary Beowolf needed to mention that he knew Eldigan in order to even get close to Raquesis. And when she appeared at ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' as a Spotpass character, her quote was quite rife with mentions about her brother. The Mitsuki Oosawa manga then proceeded to crank up this worship UpToEleven, though used for drama.

** Uchiha Sasuke and Itachi had this relationship until Itachi killed the entire Uchiha Clan. [[spoiler: After Sasuke killed Itachi, Madara revealed that Itachi loved Sasuke more than everything all along, and the real reason why the clan was killed; consequently, Sasuke turned to Post-mortem BigBrotherWorship]].

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': Even though they're not related to each other, they could qualify for this trope. John admires Sherlock for his intelligence and was genuinely ''shocked'' [[TearJerker when Sherlock was thought to be dead.]] Also, Sherlock admires John for his intelligence and was [[BuffySpeak flustered when John was offering his life for his]] and it gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilariously bad]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming best-man's speech.]] Well, the fact that John's [[UndyingLoyalty brave]] and tons more.

**If Mycroft's appearances in the mind palace are anything to go by, Sherlock definitely looks up to Mycroft intellectually, although the way Mental Mycroft belittles his brother indicates that this coexists with a great deal of resentment.

* Played With in ''Manga/BlueExorcist''. In the ''backstory'' Yukio had this towards Rin. Unfortunately, at this point he's got into his a very ''negative'' view of Rin and needs to be ''better'' than his brother, which results in [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] and [[TheResenter resentment]].

It's suggested that deep down he still is this trope, which just contributes to his self-loathing and mental breakdown.
** Another interesting twist, Juzo seems to have this to Takezo...who is [[PosthumousCharacter long dead.]] The fact he has this trope towards him [[spoiler: adds to Renzo's problems with "worshipping" someone he's never known.]]
