* Actually ''averted'' in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' as Tony Stark believes that Aunt May is a kindly old grandma but finds her to be smoking hot. Being played by Marisa Tomei helps. It makes thing awkward as Peter is right there.

* A scene from ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' implies this was the case with Hotakainens before they became ChildSoldiers. When Lalli makes a mistake, his cousin Tuuri scolds him by asking what her older brother ([[PromotionToParent who has been watching over both of them]] ever since they joined the army) and their grandmother would have said about it. Lalli's parents are conspiciously absent from the list of authority figures.

* ComicBook/{{Spiderman}}/Peter Parker (despite being a classic and famous example of {{Nephewism}}) fits the trope as well due to the advanced age of his Aunt and Uncle. In most continuities, they were his mother/father's ''much'' older sibling and respective spouse who helped raise ''them''. Already "elderly" when Peter began his super heroics as a teenager, Aunt May and Uncle Ben would have been more like grandparents to him had his parents been alive.
