* In the ''Literature/{{Malloreon}}'', Belgarion and his wife are long-lived, and it has been prophesied that he would only have one son. This trope hasn't fully taken effect at the end of ''The Seeress of Kell'' (and the birth of Belgarion's second daughter), but it's confirmed by the Purpose of the Universe itself to be on the way.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' -- While their family isn't "massive," Bart occasionally has pangs of this, with being the only son out of three kids. In one episode, where he becomes jealous of the bond that his sisters, Lisa and Maggie, have, he sets out to try and find a little brother. At one point in the episode, he goes to a local orphanage and gets a boy from there to be his temporary "brother." At first, Bart tried tricking his parents into making a fourth child, but gave up on this when Marge pointed out that even if she and Homer did end up having another baby (which they don't want to happen), the baby may end up being another girl instead of a boy--the idea of having three sisters scared Bart. In the end, the orphan boy Bart befriended ends up being adopted by a family with six daughters, who're likely to make him understand what [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Syaoran feels]].
* Lor from ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' is her parent's only daughter and has so many brothers that she loses count of how many there actually are.
* Wendy from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is the oldest and only daughter of four children.

The outnumbered sibling often occurs when a character (usually the protagonist) is the only girl or boy in their (usually large) family. This can result in the character hoping and praying for a sibling of their gender, ParentalFavoritism either for or against the character, and the character feeling either superior or inferior to the rest. More often than not the outnumbered sibling will either be the oldest or the youngest. If they're in the middle out of three, it's one of the more common aversions to MiddleChildSyndrome since they stand out by virtue of their gender.

* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'' differs from most of these because, originally, the family has two sons and three daughters; however, oldest son Matt is already an adult by his mom's last pregnancy, leaving the younger son, Simon, afraid that the new baby will be a girl and he'll be stuck alone in the house with four sisters. Ultimately, Annie winds up having [[spoiler:twin boys]].
