* In ''Anime{{Vandread}}'', Misty calls Meia this constantly, despite having just met her. The [[BlindIdiotTranslation dub]] unfortunately has this directly translated as "dear sister", [[DubText confusing everyone into thinking the two are actually related when they just met each other]].

** On top of that in The Different story manga [[spoiler:Kyouko]] openly admits to considering Mami her Onee-sama... as to which meaning she meant by that is left ambiguous, but given the story's tendency for [[LesYay yuri undertones]] it's only natural to consider it possible type 2...

* In OniisamaE the eldest Sorority girls play the role, or are supposed to. Lampshaded by Nanako, who comments on how [[spoiler: "Lady Borgia" Ogiwara and "Lady Mona Lisa" Komabayashi]] were kind to her... [[spoiler: until the Sorority is in risk of being disbanded.]]

Interestingly, in contrast that in Japan, the honorific OneeSama is mostly used by a girl to call another girl, in Korea, which differentiates the honorific not only by the gender of the one being called but also the gender of the caller, the counterpart of OneeSama in Korea only present if the caller is male. (Nunim if the one being addressed to the honorific is an older female, addressed by a younger male, and Hyungnim if the one being addressed to the honorific is an older male, addressed by a younger male). Also there's a slight twist to Type 3, in which said person is said male's in laws instead of actual older sibling.

* ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'' : Tania is addressed as Nunim by her younger brother Tarras. Not only because they are from a noble family, but also because [[BigSisterBully Tania did things that better be unspoken]] to her poor ButtMonkey brother, causing him not only greatly respects her but also fears her.

In its most literal translation, Onee-sama (also parsed ''[[{{Keigo}} o-]][[JapaneseSiblingTerminology nee]][[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.

* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', Miyako Inoue greatly admires "Mimi-oneesama." This is particularly amusing because Miyako already has two older sisters, Momoe and Chizuru, and because of the blatant ''[[RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]]'' ShoutOut during the episode they first meet.

* In ''BGataHKei'', Yamada tries to surprise Kosuda with a kiss in the dark, only to discover it's her friend Takeshita. She remarks afterward that "if it had gone any farther, I'd have to call you ''onee-sama''". (See intro for the term's {{yuri}} connection.)

* In ''LuckyStar'' Minami Iwasaki is very attached to her neighbor Miyuki Takara and accidentally calls her "Onee-chan". Minami appears to have a simlar relationship with Yutaka (but with roles reversed), at least in the eyes of Hiyori who draws Dōjinshi of the two as a {{Yuri}} couple; Yutaka calling Minami "oneesama" even made it into the English dub, though the dub already includes honorifics most of the time.
