* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'': [[SassyBlackWoman Claudia]] acts as a big sister figure to Lisa Hayse, often by lending an ear when Lisa's stressed and needs to vent, and occasionally gives her relationship advice to help her get closer to Rick Hunter. Though when it comes to her fellow BridgeBunnies (Kimberly, Vanessa, and Sammy), she's the TeamMom.

* Attractive and intelligent Melodía of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' tries to be this for her younger sister Monserrat, as their father rarely notices they exist.

** Camilla from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' comes off this way towards the Nohrian siblings, ''especially'' in Elise's eyes (who idolizes her enough that she put purple highlights in her hair to match Camilla). Scarlet also has some CoolBigSis vibes with Corrin in their supports and ''Revelations'' interactions, though to a lesser degree than Camilla.

** Sansa Stark, while [[spoiler: masquerading as Alayne Stone]], meets ''two'' cool older girls who play this role for her: tomboyish PluckyGirl Mya Stone and world-wise, lively Myranda Royce.

** Several of the older Numbers act as big sisters for they younger ones, more specifically: Due for Quattro, Tre for Sette, Cinque for all of the ones that make a HeelFaceTurn (especially Nove), and Sein for Wendi.
** Nove pulls double duty as both this and TheMentor for Vivio and her friends, to the point that they name themselves Team Nakajima in her honor when they enter in the Inter-Middle Championship (despite her embarrassed protests).

Added DiffLines:

** This also slightly applies when the two [[FusionDance fuse into Sugilite]]. When she first appears in "Coach Steven" to [[ItMakesSenseInContext wreck a Gem Control Tower]], she first asks Steven if he "wants to see something cool." Steven then spends a good chunk of the episode thinking Sugilite is awesome, and wanting to be strong like her, [[TeamMom much to Pearl's disapproval]].

* In ''Anime/PokemonSpecial'', Blue probably sees herself as Silver's older sister-type figure (though shippers say that Silver feels something a ''little'' bit more for her). She also occasionally looks out for Yellow.

* Triela fills this role in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'', despite not being related to any of the other protagonists. She seems a bit older than the other girls. SixthRanger Petra, despite being the most teenage, does ''not'' apply here since she doesn't even interact with the others.




to:

* Da-Jeong from ''Webcomic/TheFriendlyWinter'' is a few years older than Min-Seong. She acts like a cool, older sister figure to Min-Seong, though due to a thyroid condition she's ''way'' [[HugeGuyTinyGirl smaller than him]]. It's suggested they might literally become siblings if [[RomancingTheWidow their parents hook up]].



* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Yang is this to Ruby. She actually used to read bedtime stories to her every night when they were younger. Slightly tragic example considering she kind of had to become one, and fast, [[MissingMom due to certain circumstances]].
** And to her other team-mates as well, to a lesser extent. She's the one who, [[AngerBornOfWorry in her own special way]], talks Blake out of her HeroicRROD.
** In fact, both Yang and Ruby have been hit by the MissingMom trope. Yang's mother left when she was a baby. Her father ended up marrying Ruby's mom (Yang's mother's friend), but she died shortly after Ruby's birth. Yang was pretty much forced to pick up the mantle for her half-sister.

* Twilight Sparkle to Spike in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. At times, she comes off as a [[ParentalSubstitute mother]] more than a sister though, since Spike has no separate maternal figure in Ponyville. Rainbow Dash also sees her old friend, Gilda the Griffon, as one. To her credit, Gilda ''does'' seem to care about her; the problem is that she doesn't care [[{{Jerkass}} for anyone else]].
