* Completely [[AvertedTrope averted]] in SuperMarioBrothers Whenever he's not a HeroicMime like his brother, Luigi is more than happy to address Mario as "Big bro" or something similar. Particularly noticeable in SuperPaperMario's epilogue, where it's the very first thing you read.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'': [[spoiler: When Cagalli tells Athrun she's glad to have Kira for a little brother, he teasingly asks her if he might not be her big brother instead. She grumpily insists that she was born first]].

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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
