** Going even further back in ''Genealogy of the Holy War'' are half-brothers [[WellIntentionedExtremist Arvis]] and [[BadassBookworm Azel]] of Velthomer. Azel's mom was one of the maids working for Arvis' dead mother and died some time ago, and their father Lord Victor went the SpurnedIntoSuicide way at some point, so Arvis took upon himself the duty of helping raise young Azel. [[spoiler: Arvis was less than an ideal parent, though, since Azel presumably dies along with the rest of Sigurd's army at the end of the game's first half when Arvis betrays and slaughters all of them. Other sources, however, hint that Azel ''may'' have been spared by Arvis, but [[KilltheCutie died of illness]] and grief some time later.)]]

** This is also heavily implied with Lucina. [[spoiler: She's Chrom's daughter from a Bad Future ''and'' the first born of the Future Children. and as said above all of his playable wives have their own canonical child who's younger than her, meaning Chrom will typically father two children no matter who he marries. It's outright stated in all of Lucina's supports with her younger sibling that Chrom told her to protect them; if either Morgan or Cynthia is Chrom's kid, either of them says in their dad support that they have next to no memories of him (though for different reasons), further evidencing this.]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the Nohr siblings barely survived in a DeadlyDecadentCourt. The two eldest surviving kids, Crown [[TeamDad Prince Xander]] and [[TeamMom Princess Camilla]], ended up taking parental roles towards their half-siblings Leo and Elise and their adoptive sibling the Avatar.



* [[spoiler: Mira Kagami]] in ''TokimekiMemorial'' is revealed to be unable to join clubs because she's the eldest of five children in a poor household, her father died, and she has to help her mother to take care of her ''much'' younger brothers. [[spoiler: All of the times Mira cancels dates with you? One of the kids is an IllBoy and she must take care of him. [[TextileWorkIsFeminine She's good at sewing?]] She fixes the kids's clothes to aid her mom. She doesn't let you walk her home?

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Katara took on this sort of role in looking after her family after her mother died. A notable case, since Katara is actually the younger sibling, though CloserToEarth. Even when she and Sokka leave the South Pole, she becomes the TeamMom. Her brother Sokka even highlights this at one point in Book 3, talking to Toph about how whenever he tries to picture his mother's face, Katara's is the face he sees.

Sara-Kate is terrified of being taken away by CPS, so she's been keeping their situation secret and making ends meet through a combination of clever deceit, hard work, MacGuyvering, and sheer force of will.]]

* [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Yujiki]] looks after her little sister Hinagiku in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', but usually it ends up being the other way around.
** While this may have been true after their parents abandoned them (and possibly even before), it seems that normalcy has reasserted itself after they get adopted by the Katsura's. Yukiji seems to have reverted to more child-like while Hinagiku is supporting herself and generally not truly caring about her older sister except when it makes her look bad.

** In the Gold/Silver arc of ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', we learn that Blue met Silver (age five and three, respectively) after they were kidnapped by the same giant bird to become the Masked Man's minions. The two of them were put together as a team. From then on, Blue acted as [[CoolBigSis a surrogate sister]] to the boy, and eventually escaped with him. In the Green Leaf/Fire Red arc, Silver only starts looking for his biological family after Blue has successfully found her own parents.

* In ''PandoraHearts'', poor [[TheChewToy Gilbert]] got PromotedToParent before his age reached the double digits: his parents sold him and his little brother Vincent to a freak show because of the latter's [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eye]] (a sign of being a [[ApocalypseMaiden Child of Misfortune]]). The two children grew up on the streets, and Gilbert took it upon himself to feed his brother (by stealing) and protect him--[[ThickerThanWater even though he was tempted to abandon him and fend for himself]] many times. [[PsychoticManchild Vincent]] developed [[{{Yandere}} a twisted obsession]] with Gilbert as a result.

* ''Manga/BunnyDrop'' begins with 30-year old Daikichi taking in his recently deceased grandfathers' illegitimate six year old daughter. He spends the rest of the anime learning how to take care of a young child, though the maga has a {{timeskip}} where Rin is now a teenager. Most fans [[FanonDiscontinuity ignore]] the timeskip due to [[spoiler:[[WifeHusbandry the two falling in love]].]]

-->'''Kit:''' He’s not my father! He may pretend to care, but it’s only because he’s on some sick power trip! He doesn’t love me like Dad did, but he sure as hell thinks he can tell me what to do every second of the day!\\
'''Maya:''' You’re right. He doesn’t love us the way Dad did. Dad buggered off halfway round the world with his new family the moment things got tough. Lochan could have left school last year, got himself a job, and moved out. He could choose to run off next year to a university at the other end of the country. But no, he’s only applying to ones in London, even though his teachers were desperate for him to try for Oxbridge. He’s staying in London so he can live here and look after us and make sure we’re all right.

* Happened in Aussie soap ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'' when a new family (or rather, part of an old family, the Ramseys) were introduced, but before they even got introduced properly, the single mother died in a car accident. With the father missing, oldest child Katie steps up to the plate as year-12 student and bread-winner for her marginally younger brother Harry (who repeatedly undermines her authority, not always deliberately, because he is only a year younger than her) and little sister Sophie (who's about 10 and looks up to both her older siblings -- which causes problems if/when they clash).

** Lightning gets it again around the end of the first disc, when Hope joins her when she tries to go solo, in the process proving how [[SquishyWizard weak and defenseless]] he really is. She's visibly displeased -- [[CharacterDevelopment at least at first]].

* In several rapidly developing Southeast Asian cultures, such as Vietnam, as parents work for longer and longer hours to support their large families, the eldest children are expected to act as surrogate parents to their younger siblings while their parents are absent. This is common to all cultures where the firstborn son is considered to be second in status only to the father -- many, if not most, place the firstborn son above the mother in the family hierarchy, while still maintaining the tradition of utter respect for one's parents -- but is especially prominent in countries that have until recently been considered Third World. This is due to the rapid economy growth and increased cost of living resulting in a need for parents to work for longer and longer hours.

* In the [[Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames]] universe, the human version of Shining Armor and Twilight's parents were killed by a DrunkDriver when the latter was thirteen. Shining, since he was of age at the time of the accident, was able to take custody of his sister. His fiancee, Cadance, decided that she wanted to help raise Twilight, so they both agreed to tie the knot down at the courthouse instead of doing the big wedding they were planning before the tragedy struck. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming They're still going to have the fancy ceremony, but they both agreed to hold off both that and having a baby of their own until their charge graduated high school so they can focus all of their attention on making sure Twilight grows up in a caring enviroment.]]
