* All of Oliver's party members in ''NiNoKuni'' are older than he is. Esther is only a few years older, but Swaine is about thirty [[spoiler: and his little brother, Marcassin, is in his early twenties]]. ExpositionFairy Drippy, the most explicitly "sidekickish" of them, is old enough to have traveled with the Great Sage Alicia when she was younger, and acts a bit like a man in his forties.

* In ''Literature/DragonRider'', Twigleg (who is stated in ''A Griffin's Feather'' to be over 400 - in ''Dragonrider'' Nettlebrand claims that he and Twigleg were created in the early 15th century, making them nearly 600 years old, but this is probably just his exaggeration) becomes this to Ben, who is 12 when we first meet him. Probably neither Twigleg nor Ben would describe it this way - from Twigleg's point of view, he has decided to switch alliances from being Nettlebrand's {{Minion]] to being Ben's, and from Ben's point of view they are simply friends. The age differential is downplayed, since, although Twigleg has had hundreds of years to read and study, he has rarely been outside the alchemist's castle, and therefore doesn't know much about the outside world. Also, Twigleg is so small and vulnerable that most people, especially Ben, feel protective towards him, the way they would towards a child.

* Jake the Dog in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' for Finn.Finn the Human. Played with, as while they are both chronologically about the same age, Jake's dog biology means that he aged to adulthood before Finn even reached puberty.

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', Sam Wilson. While Steve is of course chronologically older, in terms of lived years Sam is about mid-30s while Steve is about half a decade younger. They have the common experience of [[ShellShockedVeteran combat-related trauma]], with the difference that Sam has had time to process and accept it, leading Steve to seek him out for guidance.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax'', the titular hero is a twelve year old boy so he has his [[BattleButler Body Guard]] Norman do all the killing.
