* In JimmyBuffett's song "The Pascagoula Run", he sings about his "black sheep" Uncle Billy, who had made it rich while traveling around the world. When Billy came back home to Mississippi, he immediately went on a 24-hour bar-hopping run to all his old haunts and invited his nephew Jimmy to come along. According to Buffett, this all actually happened back when he was 17.

* Uncle Red from ''Film/SilverBullet'' is practically idolized by his nephew Marty. He might be a chronic drunk but not hard to see where the admiration comes from when he builds his nephew a high end motorized wheelchair, gives his fireworks to set off, and has the gumption to fight a werewolf hand to hand in the climax.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Qrow is Yang's maternal uncle, but acts as an uncle to both Yang and Ruby. He once saved Yang and Ruby's lives from a mistake Yang made. He trained Ruby in the most dangerous form of huntsman weapon, something implied to have been against her school policy. He plays video games with them and tells them stories about his adventures and missions. Qrow is grumpy, argumentative and perpetually drunk, but he and his nieces adore each other.

* In the Comicbook/FantasticFour, Reed and Sue's children consider Johnny to be a cool uncle since he's a superhero that sets himself on fire. Ben also gets this treatment although he's not related.
** Doctor Doom of all people is considered to be this by Valeria Richards, since he is basically the relative that spoils her the most. That, and he indulges her TokenEvilTeammate tendencies. You'd think this'd be something he'd try to hide, to save face (er, mask), but no, he has placed her under his royal protection, and allows her to call him "Uncle Doom".
* SpiderMan's own uncle Ben was a pretty cool guy since he fought in World War II and shaped Peter into the man he is today.
