Of course, given the [[GattacaBabies circumstances of Kira's gestation]], he wasn't technically "born" at all, making things extremely murky no matter which way you view it]].

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', ''The Horse and His Boy''. King Loon explains that Prince Cor, rather than his twin brother Prince Corin is first in line to succession, because he's the elder by 20 minutes. [[InvertedTrope Corin is quite happy about this while Cor is not.]]

* It's one of the many, ''many'' things about which the eponymous twins bicker in Creator/BeverlyCleary's book ''Literature/MitchAndAmy.'' Amy is the elder twin by ten minutes, and she occasionally likes to rub it in her brother's face that he will never be older than she is.

** When 2000 drew to a close, several twins were [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/twins-from-different-centuries/ reported]] all across the world to have been born before and after midnight. It's relatively rare enough the older twin can say they were born on an earlier date than their sibling. It's quite another to be able to say their birth was in the previous year, century and millennia than that of their younger twin.

* Twins born close to midnight but far enough apart to be on different dates have the additional bragging rights of being born a day earlier even if that was technically minutes earlier, often leading to [[DiscussedTrope discussion]] of this trope from both the media and the parents.
** A San Diego couples daughter Jaelyn was born on New Year's Eve, in the very last minute of 2015, whilst her twin brother Luis was born in the first few minutes of New Year's Day.
** In Arizona couple's first son, Sawyer, arrived on New Year's Eve at 23:50, and his twin brother Everett held on until 12:01 on New Year's Day. When asked about this trope their father speculated that Sawyer would probably tease Everett over being older.

* Illya and Chloe have this dynamic in ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya''. As they're both different aspects of the same person, the arguments stem from how each of them defines which of them is older. Chloe is mentally older, but she has only had a seperate physical existence for a short time. In practice, Chloe usually takes the role of the elder, much to Illya's chagrin.

* In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', the Maximoff twins have a moment like this. Pietro normally follow Wanda's lead, but when she tells him to do something he doesn't entirely agree with (namely, to help the people of Sokovia rather than protect her), he complies but jokes that technically, he's twelve minutes older.

* When Wanda starts ordering around her brother in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', he reminds her he's twelve minutes older than her, though it's more light teasing than a serious argument.
