** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
*** Creator/JamesMcAvoy stresses in the June 2016 issue of ''F***'' magazine that Professor X, for all of his kindness and altruism, has a profound psychological need to be the "king of the castle," so to speak. Xavier genuinely loves his friends and his students and he cares deeply about them, but it's also very important to him to hold a certain amount of authority over them.
---->'''[=McAvoy=]''': That's partly why he's building a school and he wants that family that he never really had, and he wants to be the father. He's got that slight... he's a good man, but he's got a little bit of a god complex as well. He wants to be at the head of the table. It's a good thing, but it's his flaw as well.
*** Ironically, Quicksilver chooses to be mentored by Charles instead of beginning a relationship with his estranged father Erik. Although Peter doesn't know either man well at this point, his decision strongly suggests that he feels a greater affinity towards Xavier (they are {{Foil}}s for each other, and they share several personality traits in common), who did briefly display his paternal side towards Maximoff before they had parted ways in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Kakei is older, more [[GoodOldWays conservative]], and tends to vocally correct the misbehaviours of the Braves around him. Naturally he gets along quite well with the TeamMom, Rokuro, both of them being fairly orthodox people in a cast of [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits eccentrics]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Garnet is an 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.

* ''Series/TheATeam'' - [[ColonelBadass Col.]] John "Hannibal" Smith.

* ''Series/TheATeam'' - [[ColonelBadass Col.]] John "Hannibal" Smith.Smith smiles at (and sometimes plays along with) Murdock's antics like a parent watching their young child act out fantasies, he can keep B. A. under control, and he reminds Face to keep his wandering eye in check and focus on the task at hand. He also has this cute habit of referring to the other members of the A-Team by their military ranks (Captain, Lieutenant, and Sergeant, respectively), even though they've all technically been discharged, and they often refer to him as "Colonel." He always has unwavering faith that his men will get the job done, and his {{nerves of steel}} are likelier to be rattled by something threatening Face, B.A., or Murdock than him.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' - Robert "Bob" Parr, aka Mr. Incredible (also a literal/biological father).
* ''Film/TheGoonies'' - Brand, as the oldest, tries to be the TeamDad. He makes a point of trying to take charge of the younger kids, but this doesn't work out so well.

** Thorin in ''Film/TheHobbit'' may also qualify. At least to the younger dwarves.

** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'': Erik Lehnsherr has a "tough love" approach with the young mutants (Sean Cassidy learns this the hard way). Charles Xavier might qualify as well, but he tends to act more like the nurturing TeamMom. Insert witty commentary [[HoYay here]].

* The Internet has seen fit to turn ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'''s Soldier:76 into one (and Mercy as TeamMom), but emphasizing the "[[BumblingDad Dad]]" part (making sure the kids eat their vegetables, wearing socks with sandals, and of course dad jokes). It's amazing how much emotion he can communicate with just his eyebrows.

* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'': Captain Raymond Holt acts as the strict parental figure to the precinct, getting every member to reach their potential through discipline, and he is willing to put his team first in every decision he makes.

** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]] has [[TheObiWan Mu La Flaga]] take this role for the Archangel's crew, and [[spoiler: after Mu's death]] [[FathertoHisMen Andrew Waldfelt]] eventually ascends to this role in the sequel.

* For a good-aligned party in ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]'', Keldorn can come across very strongly as a LawfulGood, evil-smiting paladin Team Dad. His age helps-his ''daughter'' is about the same age as most party members, including the protagonist.

* Shiro of ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'' fits the mold so well that fans and staff alike have taken to calling him [[FanNickname Space Dad]]. His voice actor, Josh Keaton, even noted in an interview that he channeled his own experience as a father into his portrayal.
