* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Garnet is a ([[OneGenderRace sort of]]) female example of this trope. She is the de facto leader of the Crystal Gems, lives a disciplined lifestyle, and often has to rein in her team's shenanigans.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Garnet is a ([[OneGenderRace sort of]]) female example of this trope. She is the de facto leader of the Crystal Gems, lives a disciplined lifestyle, be the serious one who reins in the team and often has they all look up to rein her. However, she's mainly this with Steven (while Pearl is the TeamMom and Amethyst is the CoolBigSis to him.) Greg somewhat functions this as Steven's dad, though the others have awkward friendships with him, at least in her team's shenanigans.the beginning. They begin respecting him more over time, including Pearl.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' gives us the Hierophant confident, Sojiro Sakura. The man who takes the P5 protagonist in during his year of probation, he starts out as a gruff and mildly cynical cafe owner/curry chef, but he's revealed to be a very cool and reliable man who ends up bonding with the protgaonist (with the end of it all but being said he considers Joker LikeASon to him while also seeing alot of his younger self in him.) He also has everyone call him "Boss" and while it's not visible, it's clear all of the Thieves have deep respect for him (notable since all of tem lack good paternal figures or even active parents in general.) Heck, Sojiro is the adoptive father of Futaba, who's mother was a former co-worker and long had a soft-spot for (with Futaba implying that she liked him too, but did not pursue a relationship with him due to work, though given how she was planning on finishing up her work to spend more time with Futaba, it's almost certain she would've ended up with him.)
** This extends to the fanbase, who hold in such high regard as to call him "Coffee Dad" alongside "Sojibro" and "Brojiro."

* While Leonard on ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is a DeadPanSnarker at times, when it comes down to it he's the go to guy for moral support. Fittingly, his on again off again girlfriend is the CoolBigSis /TeamMom.

** Most notably, they're this with Sheldon, Leonard's roommate. While Leonard is uusally exaserpated if not always annoyed with his roommate, he cares deeply for him.

** His most definitive example of dad-ness is probably "False Positive", where he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome bawls out the rest of the gang (and Punchy) for their cowardly choices and spends three minutes unequivocally ordering them (and Punchy) to do the smart thing OR ELSE]] -- a move which ''drastically'' improves all of their lives for the rest of the show. Comes complete with Barney snickering [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "Marshall and Lily got in troooouble!"]]

* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1460890/1/Living-History Living History]]'' is the only one of the Scoobies to actually take the time to get to know the younger Slayers. As a result, every Slayer not named Buffy, Faith, or Kennedy comes to him with all their problems. More than one character notes he's probably the only thing holding the new Council together.

* Chiron from ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus''.

to:

* Chiron from ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus''.''Literature/TheCampHalfBloodSeries'' trains each new generation of demigods, helps them through the process of understanding who they are, listens when they have problems, and keeps them more or less in line. He's been doing it for a few thousand years, by now.



* On ''Series/DoctorWho,'' the Doctor is almost always a ParentalSubstitute to his companions, and as such is generally this when he has more than one companion at a time. Notable examples include the First, Second, and Fifth Doctors with their respective TARDIS teams, while the Eleventh Doctor is an aversion due to how he treated Amy and Rory more like friends than children. [[spoiler: Which turns out to be appropriate, given that they're his sort-of parents-in-law]]. However, even then he still has moments of being a ParentalSubstitute, such as going full PapaWolf when [[spoiler: Amy is kidnapped]] and acting as a ShipperOnDeck to them.



* Dr Harrison Wells of ''Series/TheFlash2014''. He's the head of S.T.A.R. Labs, making him Caitlin and Cisco's boss, but his relationship with the younger members of Team Flash is much more than that of boss and employee. He talks to Cisco about his problems with his family, helps Caitlin to deal with the loss of her fiance, and guides Barry through the ups and downs of being the Flash. Cisco in particular is [[LikeASonToMe like a son to him]], and he tells him as much when talking him out of quitting the team after [[spoiler: he was forced to tell Captain Cold Barry's secret identity]].

At the end of the first season, [[spoiler: this gets nastily subverted when he turns out to be Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash, though it's indicated that he still cares about Cisco to a certain extent, and somewhat less so Caitlin]].
