* In the live action film of ''Film/TheFlintstones'', An anguished Pebbles cries out "Wake up, Uncle Barney!" after Barney is knocked unconscious. It's not like we shouldn't believe that this was the case in the series, though; Barney and Fred have been friends since fifth grade.

* In ''Comicbook/TheFantasticFour'', Franklin and Valeria Richards, Reed and Sue's children, call Ben "Uncle Ben"; Ben is even Franklin's godfather (and Frank's middle name, Benjamin, was given in honor of Ben, Reed's best friend since college). ComicBook/SpiderMan has also become one of these over the years, thanks to being more and more ingrained in the [[TrueCompanions family]]. The way he's taken over Johnny's spot recently has been compared to an uncle moving in to look after everyone following a death in the family. Also, their nemesis Doctor Doom is also the official godfather of Valeria and was even the one who named her due to helping Sue give birth to her. The FF has always been just as much a family as a team, so this makes sense.

* When [[KidFromTheFuture Bart]] from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' first meets the Garricks he refers to them as his "honorary great-grandparents," since they're the sort-of mentors of [[TheFlash his grandfather]]. WordOfGod also says they hold the "uncle/aunt" role for [[FragileSpeedster Wally]].

* In ''Literature/SnowFlowerAndTheSecretFan'', narrator/protagonist Lily overhears Snow Flower addressing their chaperone the matchmaker informally as "Auntie", assumes this trope is the case, and [[DeliberatelyCuteChild imitates the form of address to beg for sweets]]. In a later chapter, Snow Flower admits that [[SubvertedTrope the matchmaker really is her aunt]].

* * The Pelekai sisters, Lilo and Nani, treat the extraterrestrial Jumba Jookiba and [[GenderBlenderName Wendy]] Pleakley as their respective uncle and aunt figures (even though the latter alien is male), allowing the two move to in with them when the two aliens were exiled to Earth after the climax of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. This is especially seen throughout ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', with the aliens helping out their niece figures and vice versa.

* On ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' Shawn is this to Riley and Auggie. Considering his relationship with their father Cory, who sometimes seems to love his best friend more than his wife Topanga, it's a given.
** Cory and Topanga themselves act as this to Maya.
