* Parodied in ''Svenska Serier'' (a Swedish comic anthology from the 80's and 90's) with Sven, an employed comic character whose schtick was that his employers/creators were constantly trying to make him more popular and marketable with anything they could think up. During a brief ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD''-themed story trying to use sex, violence and sci-fi to boost ratings, it was revealed that Sven literally had no genitals, only a metal seal with a tag labeled "prepared for nephews". (And later the same seal was broken through unspecified means, and three nephews started living in his house. None of which he even knew, since he didn't even have any siblings or family.)

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': The Pine twins' summer caretaker is their great uncle, Stanley Pines (aka, "Grunkle Stan"). Dipper and Mabel's parents around and are sometimes mentioned, but as Dipper explained in a voiceover in the pilot episode, their parents sent them to stay with Grunkle Stan for the summer so they could get some "fresh air."
** Stan's more like a surrogate grandfather to Dipper and Mabel than anything else, so in this case, would it technically "''Great''-nephewism"?

** Huey, Dewey, and Louie are a particularly odd case in that, in their first appearance in 1938, they ''did'' have a mother, Dumbella, who was Donald's sister, and they were explicitly just visiting. They never left, and by 1942 Donald was shown onscreen listing them as dependents on his tax forms. Some German Donald Duck fans have even up with a theory that in Duckburg it is simply the done thing to have children raised by their uncles (or aunts) instead of their parents, and coined the technical term ''Veronkelung'' ("uncling") for it. It certainly [[ItRunsInTheFamily runs in the family]] -- although Scrooge's parents didn't die until he was an adult, Carl Barks, Keno Don Rosa, and ''[[WesternAnimation/DuckTales]]'' all depict him leaving Scotland for America at age 13, spending his teenage years being employed and trained by his own uncle!
