* ''TheFlash'' Wally West considers [[CoolUncle Barry Allen]] as a more of father than his own biological one. In return Barry thinks of him as his own as well. Considering Barry's fate (or Wally's depending on universe), their relationship turns into {{Tear Jerker}} between them.
** There is also Bart Allen, 'Impulse' and later 'Kid Flash' who comes from future. With his father being dead and his mother in future, he considers Max Mercury as his father figure. Like his predecessors Wally and Barry, theirs also ends in tragedy.

* Subverted in ''Brotherhood of the Rose'', by David Morrell. The two protagonists meet in an orphanage from which they're recruited by CIA chief Elliot, who presents himself as a surrogate father figure. They later discover that Elliot (and other members of his worldwide conspiracy) have done the same thing with other orphans, in order to create a team of EliteMooks who'll obey their orders without question.

** Mario becomes this to Jeffy in all of Jeffy's appearances (excluding "Bowser Junior's Playtime 4" and "Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Part 6"), because Jeffy's mother was too annoyed by him and didn't want to deal with him any further.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Davos Seaworth was the closest thing to a decent parental figure Shireen Baratheon had -- her actual parents being crazy Lord of Light zealots who spent a lot of time burning people when things weren't going well for them during the War of Five Kings. He admits that [[LikeASonToMe loved her as if she were his own child]] [[spoiler:when confronting Melisandre over her role in Shireen being burned as a sacrifice.]]

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'': [[TheObiWan Master Eraqus]] serves as a mentor and father figure to Aqua and Terra, who themselves can be seen as older siblings or parental figures in [[TheHeart Ven's]] life (the Japanese version of ''Birth by Sleep'' has Scrooge give Ven three tickets and telling him to bring "his parents" along; he gives them to Aqua and Terra). Later on in-universe, Axel's extremely over-protective behavior towards his best friend Roxas is revealed to be the result of Axel basically ''raising'' him, once again blurring the line between a big brother and father figure in Roxas's life.

* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/IceCrown'', the princess was raised by her grandfather. Roane appears to be in her uncle's charge, though he seems more taken with the notion of another pair of hands with less regulation, since she's related.

* Oboe is this for Hamel in ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln''. It is not obvious for a long, long time, thanks to the Hamel's extreme JerkassFacade and Oboe mostly keeping in the background (not without a reason), but in the end Hamel even directly states that Oboe is only being he'll ever call "father" when confronting his BigBad [[EvilOverlord biological parent]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** Stewie admitted in a dream that he see's Brian this way in "A Lot Going On Upstairs" Chris also once had this relationship with the evil monkey so it seems Peter has a tendency to be repaced with talking animals.
*** Quagmire also seems to be becoming this for [[ButtMonkey Meg]] (when he's not trying to have sex with her).
*** actually {{Subverted}} with Chris in an earlier episode Peter decided that he'd failed as a father to Chris and tries to make up for it by being this to Cleveland Jr. but finds he cant control him. Later he tries to make Chris smart by having him spend time Brian but when Chris realizes that Brian is a KnowNothingKnowItAll he decides that he would rather be like Peter
* Brock Sampson from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' claimed that the closest thing he ever had to a father was his old [[SinkOrSwimMentor mentor]] Hunter Gathers, in turn he seems to be a more attentive parent to the titular Venture brothers especially [[TheUnfavorite Hank.]]
