Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has the {{warrior prince}}s Xander and Ryoma, team "fathers" for the armies of Nohr and Hoshido respectively. Xander helped raise all of the younger family members in the middle of a DecadentCourt and is much more of a stern disciplinarian than his TeamMom sister Camilla, though he still has a compassionate heart; in the meantime, Ryoma is incredibly caring for those under him while also being very serious and focused, and as a bonus two of his prospect {{love interest}}s fall under the TeamMom mantle [[spoiler: including Xander's aforementioned sister Camilla.]]

* A rather sui-generis one is Akira Mimasaka form HanaYoriDango. He doesn't particularly care about forcing morality on the group (and probably couldn't if he wanted to) but is the general mediator for conflicts and seems to take it upon his shoulders when the group isn't getting along, eventually leading to him getting in a fistfight with Tsukasa when the latter won't stop stirring up drama with Rui.

* {{Waterloo Road}}: Tom Clarkson. This teacher has acted as a father figure for numerous kids at the school: Chlo and Mika Grainger (series 3-4); all the Kellys (series 4 onwards); his biological son Josh (series 5 onwards); plus other kids experiencing moments of distress. Sambuca Kelly openly declares that she "found her dad" in him [[spoiler:just before her death]].
* WhiteCollar: Peter is the team dad of the FBI's white collar division. All the agents, especially Jones and Diana, are 100% loyal to him. And he has to practice tough love with Neal. A lot.

* While Leonard on 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.

* Sam Axe from Series/BurnNotice though he prefers to be CoolOldGuy and a best friend/PluckyComicRelief, when one of Team Weston is in trouble, going crazy or approaching either the MoralEventHorizon or DespairEventHorizon he will step in and either pep talk or start a "what is wrong with you" fight, though usually he leaves it to Maddie.
* The reality show ''The Surreal Life'' featuring former celebrities living under one roof, always seemed to develop a Team Dad (although not always a Team Mom, curiously). Celebrities such as Music/MCHammer, Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey from Series/FullHouse), Christopher Knight (Peter from Series/TheBradyBunch), and the lead singer of Music/SmashMouth all acted as the dad in their respective seasons.

* Chris Hemsworth (Film/{{Thor}}) describes [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]] as "the godfather of Film/TheAvengers" because of how closely he works with SHIELD to get the team together, as seen in TheStinger of ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. This would explain why Stark always clashes with TheLeader Captain America over how to "raise the kids," so to speak.

*** Among the Second Generation characters, the one who fits the most is BadassBookworm Laurent ([[spoiler:who can potentially be fathered by the aforementioned Frederick]]). He constantly keeps tabs on everyone else - occasionally to the point of being overbearing and/or [[StalkerWithoutACrush creeping them out]] - and generally tries to keep them in order and in good health.

* ''LawAndOrder'' - Jack [=McCoy=]; previously, Adam Schiff and Arthur Branch were ''his'' [[TeamDad Team Dads]].
* ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' - Captain Donald Cragen; his role in the show is more that of MissionControl, but his relationship with his subordinates is Dad-like. At one point, Fin lampshades the trope by greeting Stabler and Benson with "Dad's mad." When he's temporarily reassigned after the nightmare that was Season 8, he bids the team farewell with, "Try to behave yourselves."
