* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', multiple [[KidFromTheFuture Grandkids from the Future]] join the cast in the series' second half, further complicating the LoveDodecahedron. In one chapter, [[HighlyVisibleNinja Yuka]] refers to both Asahi as "Grandpa" and [[HandsomeLech Shiho]] as "Grandmother". Shiho is distraught since Asahi is dating Youko and she's horrified at the idea that she'd ever do something as despicable as stealing her best friend's boyfriend. Thankfully, Yuka quickly clarifies that Asahi is simply an Honorary Grandfather to the younger members of LaResistance, and that they're not actually blood relatives.

* In the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games that feature Popuri as a character, the local kids tend to call her "Auntie Popuri". Of course, Popuri insists [[ObaSan she's too young to be called anyone's "Auntie"]]. In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature More Friends of Mineral Town]],'' if you marry Rick, she will even insist that your daughter--who would be her ''biological'' niece--not call her Auntie because she doesn't want to feel old.

* In ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', Sol Badguy is the long-time on-off [[FriendlyRivalry friend and rival]] to Ky Kiske. In ''Overture'', Ky's son Sin refers to Sol as "Oyaji" in the Japanese dub and "old man" or "pops" in the English dub, and prefers Sol as a CynicalMentor over his father Ky. Sin is care-free, informal and occasionally foul-mouthed, much like Sol and in stark contrast to his prim-and-proper KnightInShiningArmor father, but because [[BrilliantButLazy Sol half-asses everything]], [[IdiotHero it's had a hugely detrimental effect on Sin's intelligence]]. [[spoiler:{{Subverted|Trope}} if you go with the strong implication that Ky's wife and Sin's mother, Dizzy, is actually Sol's daughter, which would mean that Sol actually has a grandson in Sin]].

* In ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', Aurora addresses her three foster-mothers, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, as her "aunts."
* * 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.

* Female example (see ObaSan) in ''Series/CharlesInCharge'': The children and Charles' [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friend]] Buddy Lembeck all referred to Charles's mother as 'Aunt Lillian'. In-Universe, this was a show of respect and affection, but the practical reason for it was so the writers could maintain their running gag of not revealing Charles' last name.
