* ''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.

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': Even ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': **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. **Even though they're not related to each other, they could qualify for this trope.

* 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.]]

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}'s [[CainAndAbel hatred]] towards his brother ComicBook/TheMightyThor is matched only by his love for him. It's complicated.

** Yuushirou deeply admires Yoruichi. He expressed great sadness when Yoruichi went ahead of him in his first appearance, and later expressed great joy when he reunited with her. He abandons the group of Soul Reapers he's with to rush to her side and is willing to fight the Sternritter just for insulting her.

Holmes and Watson are no siblings. wo people admiring each others skills is not Big Brother Worship.
* [[Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries Mortality]] Watson admires Holmes for his intelligence and Holmes admires Watson for his bravery and [[UndyingLoyalty loyalty towards him]]. ** Watson pretty much says how much he admires his friend with a [[DeadlyDoctor pretty scary]] and [[BewaretheNiceOnes passionate]] BadassBoast: ** ''"[[BewaretheNiceOnes If your master's actions destroy him-him whom I regard as-as the best and wisest man I have ever known]], [[DeadlyDoctor make no mistake that I shall hunt down, to a man, everyone who played a part in his destruction]]'' ** Also, there's a summary that shows Holmes's admiration for [[HeterosexualLifePartners Watson.]] ** ''[[MemeticBadass "No evil would touch him]] [[TheChampion while Watson stood guard."]]''

* ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' and ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'' have Holmes and Watson admiring each other's skills.

* Literature/SherlockHolmes and Watson have this towards each other, [[HeterosexualLifePartners despite not being related.]] After "The Final Problem" Watson said [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "he was the best....and wisest man I have ever known"]] (even though one would question the ''wise'' part, [[OnlySaneMan due to his lack of common sense,]] but, whatever)and, guess what happens when [[OhCrap Watson is shot?]] Holmes [[NotSoStoic completely breaks character,]] ''[[Heartwarming/SherlockHolmes asks him not to be hurt,]]'' [[Awesome/SherlockHolmes and threatens death on the idiot if his friend had died on him.]]
