* Tsuyuko from ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'' isn't really that old, but she acts like one. She is loyal to the Shiina household and ''really'' emotionally attached towards the teenage daughter.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has Morose, the caretaker of Karazhan tower. First appearing in the novels, he was valet and housekeeper to the magus Medivh, and already quite old. In-game, not even death has prevented him from carrying out his duties, as he returns for a boss fight as a reanimated corpse determined to keep the players from "making a mess" of his master's tower.

* As the twenty-first-century SpiritualSuccessor to ''UpstairsDownstairs,'' ''DowntonAbbey'' also gets a lot of mileage from this trope. Mr. Carson, the butler, and Mrs. Hughes, the housekeeper, have both given their whole lives to working for the aristocratic Crawley family. Mrs. Hughes gave up her chance to marry, and Mr. Carson says outright of the Crawleys, "They're the only family I've got."
