* In ''Manga/{{Freezing}}'', Pandora and Limiters enhance their powers by establishing an Ereinbar Set through a ritual known as a baptism. For some reason, the Ereinbar Set is the strongest when the Limiter is younger than the Pandora, and so most Limiters refer to their Pandora as ''sempai''. Pandora/Limiter relationships are also frequently romantic in nature, and it's mentioned that Pandora often marry their Limiters after completing their tours of service with the Chevalier.

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', ''Manga/SoulEater'' has an interesting example with [[MadScientist Stein]] almost always calls and [[MoralityChain Spirit]] "sempai".Spirit]]. Back when they were students in the DWMA, Spirit was Stein's weapon and Stein usually referred to Spirit as "sempai." A flashback does show that Spirit appears to be the older of the two. The interesting matter comes from how it was probably this realationship why Spirit stuck by Stein for five years, despite Stein having a few screws loose. However, when Spirit learns that Stein has been operating on him (learning this from the woman who would become his future wife), Spirit leaves Stein and becomes her weapon (and she's the one who turn Spirit into a Death Scythe.) They do patch things up when they are adults though.

** In another instance, when [[CheerfulChild Sealand]] learns that [[IJustWantToBeNormal Iceland]] also attempts to auction himself on eBay due to financial difficulties, he proclaims that the two should be friends because of their being in "similar circumstances," and that Iceland should call him his "senior" and "rely" on him. Iceland doesn't know what he means, which drives Sealand to despair.

** In ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'', this is averted on a few occasions. When Rei and Zen join the group, since no one is able to conclusively determine how old they are, the others decide to treat them as first-years in high school, but neither of the two considers the others sempais. When the two groups learn that the Persona 3 team is actually from two years before the P4 group, making even the second-years older than anyone on the P4 group, Junpei is delighted to have girls calling him sempai, only for the girls to point out that while he's older than they are, since they don't go to the same school, he's not a sempai to them.
