* This is OlderThanFeudalism: In {{Homer}}'s ''Literature/TheIliad'', Patroclus was traditionally an OlderSidekick (and, later, the ultimate [[spoiler:DeadSidekick]]) to Achilles, although modern adaptations such as the movie ''Troy'' tend to portray him as younger to be more in keeping with audience expectations.

* In the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', [[WanderingMinstrel Fflewddur Fflam]] is the OlderSidekick to [[FarmBoy Taran]] and [[RebelliousPrincess Eilonwy]], who are barely out of their teens. He subverts the expectation that he would be more mature and responsible than them, however, being something of a [[WideEyedIdealist romantic and a daydreamer]] ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass although he's still handy in a fight]]).

** Though naturally much younger than [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld The Doctor]], Wilf in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] certainly looks the part, being the Doctor's oldest human companion.
** In series 5, [[spoiler:Rory Williams]] became this, [[spoiler:being an Auton replicant with Rory's memories, standing by the Pandorica for 2,000 years]]. Though by the end of "The Big Bang", he's now [[spoiler:back in his twenties, with his millennia of memories locked away unless necessary]].

* The [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] {{Franchise/DCU}} had the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy, his adult sidekick. This was brought back in UsefulNotes/TheModernAgeOfComicBooks in ''Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E'' and also in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', although the potential squick is reduced because her sidekick (the original Stripesy) is her stepfather, tagging along to keep her out of trouble.

* Subverted with Post-Crisis Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}. She is fifteen years older than her cousin Franchise/{{Superman}}, but she was put in suspended animation for thirty years, so she looks younger than him.

Added DiffLines:

* Until you get to the senior command levels, a military unit's top NCO is likely to be older and much more experienced than the official CO. Many militaries consider the training of young officers to be part of the duties of an experienced noncom.
