* Seto Kaiba of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', who promised himself when he was 10 that he would be a father to his brother, Mokuba, after their parents died. Aside from his NobleDemon personality and AgentScully views, Seto has been good to his word. Mokuba uses the highest, most respectful honorific toward him, "Nii-sama."
** Although when they first turned up in the [[Manga/YuGiOh manga]] Mokuba was an evil, cheating little creep who attempts Yuugi and Jonouchi's murders, and then an example of how evil Seto was, since while Mokuba is crying and saying he just wanted "Seto-sama's" approval Seto says things like 'In the world of games, there's no place for brotherly affection! Until you understand this, you'll never be anything but a loser!' and proceeds to put him in the mindcrush-simulation box that has already caused heart attacks and breakdowns, since those were the terms of loss. Yuugi rescues him, of course.
*** Then Yuugi (or better said, Yami Yuugi) mindcrushes Seto again, and when he gets his heart-puzzle back together and finishes his second round of catatonia, he loves Mokuba again from that point on. And the kidnappings begin.
** Jun Manjyome's older brothers on ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' are the closest thing to parents he appears to have, constantly putting pressure on him to uphold the family honor. Too bad they're CorruptCorporateExecutive jerks.
** [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Seto Kaiba was promoted to parent when he fired them.]]
*** [[FridgeLogic Even though he had no money at the time and therefore couldn't]] {{screw the rules|IHaveMoney}}. [[RuleOfFunny Oh well.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Katara took on this sort of role in looking after her family after her mother Kya was murdered. 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.

* In ''Anime/NeoRanga'', the eldest Shimabara sister Minami is the caretaker for Ushio and Yuuhi; she works at least two part-time jobs ''and'' manages her company to provide for herself and her little sisters. This has given her a MoneyDearBoy mentality, and she uses Neo Ranga itself for monetary purposes.

* ''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 manga has a {{timeskip}} where Rin became a teenager. Most fans [[FanonDiscontinuity ignore]] the timeskip due to [[spoiler:[[WifeHusbandry the two falling in love]].]]
* Happens in ''Kyou Kara Yonshimai'' when the father of the girls abandons them after their mothers death. It's up to the oldest sister to take care of her sisters. [[spoiler:She ends up running off as an adult though.]]

* A unique example takes place in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' with the titular HalfHumanHybrid Steven. Instead of giving birth to him, Steven's alien mother Rose simply ''became'' the newborn Steven, leaving the three that served under Rose confused if Steven was still her. But since Steven aged and acted like a baby, he still had to be taken care of like a human baby. They learn to treat Steven as a separate entity and help the human father Greg raise him, as shown in a WholeEpisodeFlashback. Since the start of the show, they've taken the role of caretakers, with Steven living with them full-time.
