** Eleanor Hume from ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' says that all kids, regardless of circumstance, deserve a good life. Eleanor becomes a surrogate big sister to Kamoana, and takes responsibility for Laphicet by becoming his vessel. [[spoiler:Although the former is because Eleanor [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone feels incredible guilt]] about having a hand in the death of Kamoana's mother.]]

** Luna; after seeing how much the kids enjoy Nightmare Night she un-canceled it. She also helps watch over the fillies and colts of Equestria's dreams, coming into them and helping them deal with nightmares.
** Rainbow Dash counts as well, surprisingly. Even though WordOfGod says she wouldn't be the best big sister, she tries her hardest to coach Apple Bloom through various activities such as Karate, Kite Flying, Juggling, and "Ultra Pony" Roller Derby. She is also genuinely concerned for Scootaloo's welfare in "Sleepless in Ponyville" and ends up adopting her as her surrogate little sister at the end of the episode. She's not the best role model, but she certainly tries.

* [[AFatherToHisMen Alexander Anderson]], from ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}'', operates an orphanage where he raised some of Iscariot's members including Enrico Maxwell, Heinkel Wolfe, and Yumie Takagi. In fact when we first see him in the OVA, he is breaking up a fight between two children, telling them that "Violence is never the right answer, except when used against [[AcceptableTargets heathens and monsters]]."

But due to the fact that Deadpool has the [[PsychopathicManchild mentality of a child]], he often gets along well with children.

* ComicBook/ThePunisher usually gets along pretty well with children, [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Molly Hayes]] kicking him in the nuts notwithstanding. It usually involves his seeing them as his own kids that he was unable to protect. In one of his more awesome moments, he's tasked with retrieving a little girl in Russia whose blood contains an experimental supervirus along another Special Forces guy, slaughtering the Russians sent to prevent that from happening. After he escapes (in a nuclear missile), he boards the pickup submarine and refuses to let anyone approach her, resulting in the virus decaying until it's unusable. When Frank is greeted by a large army unit and the general behind the operation, the soldiers are rather iffy about shooting him. Then Nick Fury (who gave him the mission in the first place) stands next to Frank, and the soldiers give up.

* Another WWII example: A fairly anti-semitic Polish policeman, known in his town for arresting lots of Jews, was sweeping an abandoned ghetto with other policemen and the Nazis, looking for any hiding Jews. Seeing a ladder leading up into an attic, he climbed the ladder to find several hiding Jewish children and their mother, picking them out with the light of his lantern. He could have gotten massive rewards and a promotion. But when the SS officer in charge called to him from below to ask if he had found anything, [[PetTheDog he replied, "No," and left.]] We do not know what happened to that policeman, but the family survived and remembered his action that day.

* Yet another WWII example: in the last year of the war, Soviet planes bombed facilities in the German countryside in support of military operations. During one such run it happened that two Wehrmacht soldiers went to their home village and on the way found several children playing in the woods. When they noticed the planes approching, rather than leave them alone they gathered them and attempted to flee, which then turned out futile. So they simply shielded the children with their own bodies. The two soldiers died but the children (fortunately) managed to survived. The grave marking this action still exists near the ruins of Castle Falkenstein.



** It especially applied to his relationship with the child actors for ''Willy Wonka''. He became close friends with Peter Ostrum (Charlie). When it came time to shoot his infamous outburst at the end of the film, Wilder desperately wanted to tell Peter just how mad he was going to be, because he didn't want to ruin their friendship. Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca) and Denise Nickerson (Violet) absolutely adored working with him as well.
* Creator/GordonRamsay on Series/MasterChef Junior. He's very encouraging and kind, and lets them stick his head on guacamole if they win a challenge.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', your character undergoes a lot of quests than involve, rescuing and protecting children, and in some extreme cases, providing food for impoverished ones. The children's Week event is the biggest example, where you have to act as a mentor to an orphaned child. (Although success in doing so means doing things few sane guardians would, like taking them on the battlefield and into dungeons with you. Also, the Bad Example achievement - which requires scarfing down candy in front of them - and Home alone achievement - which is ''abandoning'' them - are oddly enough necessary for the overall achievement For the Children.)
