In its most literal translation, Onee-sama (also parsed ''[[{{Keigo}} o-]][[JapaneseSiblingTerminology nee]][[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics -sama]]'' or ''oneesama'') refers to a highly respected older sister (which can be troublesome when dubs treat it literally and it ''isn't''). It's an extremely formal phrase, and probably is most commonly heard in period dramas.

* Vira from ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' is incredibly infatuated with her fellow Albion Academy graduate, Katalina, and always refers to her as 'onee-sama', it even being the name of one of her passive skills that gives her skills a shorter turn cooldown if Katalina is in the same party. Katalina on her part doesn't seem to notice or care why Vira calls her that.

** A more overtly romantic example: Noriko Katayama of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' refers to her ex-senpai Anna Yoshizaka as this. The former is either strongly implied to be or is outright in love with the latter. The localization interpreted the term literally, giving the impression that they are related when they are not.

* In [[UpdatedRerelease "The Answer"]] of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}: FES'', both [[spoiler:[[RobotGirl Aigis]]]] and [[spoiler:[[RobotGirl Metis]]]] share this type of relationship. And in ''Persona 3 Portable'' Mitsuru's social link is recasted as this for the Female Progatonist. Still some leftover LesYay though.

* Mami Tomoe in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is a Type-1 example; an elegant, reserved and graceful older sister figure who rookie magical girls look up to. However, as confirmed by WordOfGod, [[spoiler:this is only a mask used as encouragement to prolong her MagicalGirl role. It breaks in an alternate timeline depicted in episode 10, when upon learning the AwfulTruth about [[BigBad Kyubey]]'s [[CosmicHorrorStory magical girl system]], she [[FreakOut loses it]] and starts destroying the other magical girls' [[SoulJar Soul Gem]]s, believing she's saving them from a FateWorseThanDeath. Fortunately, Madoka destroys Mami's own Soul Gem before there was more than one casualty]].
