* ''KeroroGunsou'': Tamama often refers to the older members as '-sempai'; the only one who doesn't get this treatment is his beloved Gunsou-san. Kururu also refers to Giroro as his sempai at times; in his case, however, this is more to antagonize by reminding him that the scientist is younger than him, yet Kururu outranks him.

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', [[NietzscheWannabe Shishio]] refers to [[TheHero Kenshin]], the government's previous [[ProfessionalKiller manslayer]] as his sempai. Similarly to the ''YuYuHakusho'' example, he's being kind of snarky about it, as Kenshin is kind of trying to stop his grand plans now. Since Kenshin [[TheFettered has sworn to never kill again]], it's also Shishio mockingly reminding Kenshin of his previous murders.

** In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]'' and ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventureTri tri.]]'', Jou is the eldest, and thus ''sempai'' to the entire group, though it's mostly the girls who call him that. He takes his responsibility as such very seriously, even though no one else does. It's worth noting that Sora, Mimi, Koushirou, and Hikari still call Jou "Jou-sempai" six years later, even though he went to different schools for middle school and high school.
