** Subverted by Hinoka: she loves her younger siblings a lot and that's ''not'' for discussion, but she became so focused on training and getting ready to rescue the Avatar that she heavily neglected Takumi and Sakura's emotional needs. i.e, in her supports with Takumi she's horrified when he tells her that he thinks she and the others be better off without him, and she has to pretty much yell at him that his death would break her. Plus she had no idea about Sakura's glaring self-esteem problems and, when Sakura explains herself, is genuinely stunned and then explains that they're NotSoDifferent.

Expect a somewhat jaded character who prefers to work the system to their advantage rather than admit to others she's become cynical. If old enough to drink, she may also be a HardDrinkingPartyGirl, or even TheLadette; if not, she'll often be a LethalChef and/or BigEater. If older than the standard, she might be a ChristmasCake as well. She's often a GoodBadGirl and frequently the person who keeps the main characters in line. Sometimes she's even portrayed as the only person the protagonist(s) are truly afraid of.

This trope can apply to male characters as a more domestic form of the BigBrotherMentor. This type is more commonly applied to a level-headed NonActionGuy or a NiceGuy whose main job is to be a mediator in a group or take care of the kids.

* The girl of ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'', Riley Matthews, is this to her little brother Auggie, esp. when they are in the same episode. The episode "Girl Meets Brother" is a showcase of this.

This trope can apply to male characters as a lesser form of the BigBrotherMentor. This type is more commonly applied to a level-headed NonActionGuy or a NiceGuy whose main job is to be a mediator in a group or take care of the kids.

* Mia Fey from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' to her sister Maya but also to Phoenix
** being level-headed, mature and clever she is always there to help and guide them[[spoiler: even after her death]]
** the younger version of Mia in Trials and Tribulations has similar motions like Phoenix which shows the strong influence she has on her protegé
** also Lana Skye to Ema Skye - in fact Mia and Lana bear many similarities. Both are highly capable and have younger sisters who have helped Phoenix in his cases and both wear scarves tied around their neck in a similar fashion.
* Lyn from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', specially to Florina ([[LesYay if not more]]), Nils and Ninian [[spoiler: (even when they're technically ''much'' older than she is, though to be fair we don't learn that until almost the end of the game]]. Also [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Syrene]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Mahnya]], and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Cecilia]].
** In support conversations, Tana outright admits that she sees Syrene as this. Syrene's actual sister, Vanessa, seems to look up to her a lot, too.
** Lucina comes off as this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', specially towards Cynthia. Sumia seems to view Cordelia as this as well.
** 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 ''Revelation'' interactions, though to a lesser degree than Camilla.

* ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'': Part of what gets Elizabeth to change her opinion of Mr. Darcy is realizing he's this to his sister Georgiana, [[PromotionToParent whom he raised after their parents died]]. Even when he's still in {{Jerkass}} mode, he speaks very fondly of her, and when she gets to Pemberley, Elizabeth finds out that he had an entire music room set up for her.

** When Osha asks Meera if she's ashamed by the fact her brother is a NonActionGuy, she just laughs at the question, stating that there is no shame in wanting to protect someone. Not only that, but she obviously adores her little brother. This also crosses with shades of BigSisterInstinct.
