* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Septa Mordane fits the "maid" and is this trope more so to the traditionally more maidenlike Sansa than to Arya; she acts as Sansa's governess and tutor and is so loyal she gives up her life for her.

** Most Romeo and Juliet retellings, such as ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', will have this dynamic also. ''West Side Story'' features Anita, who is only a few years older than Maria but quite a bit more mature and experienced (as well as Maria's older brother's girlfriend).

It's an old archetype because in those days a woman going anywhere on her own was going to either a) have sex or b) be raped. The presence of a chaperone was intended to discourage the former and prevent the latter.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[{{Ojou}} Jessica]] often talks about her love life and other woes to her servant and friend Shannon, who has a boyfriend (Jessica's own cousin George) while she doesn't. She is also the only one to know that Jessica loves Kanon, another servant, which her parents certainly wouldn't approve of (though she only knows this because [[spoiler:she and Kanon are the same person]]). Played with a little in that Shannon is only more [[FakeBoobs filled out]] [[GagBoobs in certain places,]] and though she's around the same age and not unattractive she CantHaveSexEver.
