* In ''Manga/{{Zetman}}'', the kind-hearted hostess club worker Akemi takes in ten-year-old orphan Jin when he loses his former guardian. When he initially calls her ''Oba-san'', she feels that's a bit unflattering and encourages him to call her ''onee-san'' instead, but he continues to affectionately call her ''Oba-san'' from that time on.

* In ''VisualNovel/HoshizoraEKakaruHashi'', Yorozu Senka becomes greatly offended when Kazuma calls her "oba-san", insisting upon the less-ageist "nee-san".



* Played with with (1950) Jeanne Amakawa in ''RoseGunsDays''. Her age isn't specified, but considering that she was married with two children 6 years before we see her, she's probably in her middle-to-late thirties. When Wayne calls her an "oba-han", she beats him up, saying she isn't that old. Then when he forgets to put a "-san", she beats him again, reminding him that she ''is'' an oba-han and thus deserves respect.
