* The Optimus Prime of TransformersAnimated is much younger than most of his incarnations, being the rough equivalent of a squad commander in his 20's/30's. Two members of his unit - [[TheSmartGuy Ratchet]] and [[TheLancer Prowl]] - are both older than him due to pre-dating the Great War.

** 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 MightyMax, the titular hero is a twelve year old boy so he has his [[BattleButler Body Guard]] Norman do all the killing. Meanwhile Virgil who is even older, serves part as his boss (telling him what needs to be done) but more as a sidekick, helping him out and giving him details he'll need to know.

* 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]]).
