* ''{{DuckTales}}''. Webby Vanderquack is being raised by her grandmother Mrs. Beakley. Upon her grandmother getting hired as the maid and nanny to Huey, Dewey, and Louie, their great uncle Scrooge [=McDuck=] becomes a surrogate uncle and grandfather figure to her as well. Scrooge even asks Webby to call him Uncle Scrooge instead of Mr. Scrooge.
** And of course the triplets themselves and Great Uncle Scrooge are a variation of this. They are being cared for by him while their uncle Donald Duck, who had been [[ParentalSubstitute their guardian and de facto father]] was serving in the Navy.

* Applejack, Apple Bloom and Big Macintosh from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are under the care of Granny Smith. Granted, Granny Smith is a type of apple and may not necessarily reflect her actual relationship toward them, but considering her age, the trope applies. Possibly applies more to the elder siblings given Granny's ailing health, which may or may not include the early stages of dementia; Apple Bloom was probably raised more by [[PromotionToParent her older siblings]]. Canon has yet to actually address the question of what happened to their parents.

* 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.
