** Played with in regards to Washington. His attempts to be this to Connie doesn't work but his efforts work much better with the Reds and Blues season 10 onwards, balancing the team's craziness with Carolina's AxCrazy tendencies, trying to keep them alive by managing their limited supplies and training Tucker and Caboose to be more effective soldiers.

** All the trolls, and all the humans except John, regard John as the leader of the pre-Scratch human team. John insists he's their friend, not their leader, to which everyone's response has been "That's why you're the leader." John is nominally the ''youngest'' of the pre-Scratch kids by a few months, though the days each of them regard as their birthdays actually aren't due to time shenanigans, and they were all "born" at the same time to within a couple of minutes at most.

* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' - Colonel Potter. Before Potter took over, Colonel Blake was a sort of "older brother" figure filling this role: at least the officers in the main cast almost invariably called Blake "Henry" except when deliberately speaking formally or to third parties; only ''very'' rarely did anyone dare to call Potter "Sherman".

* Thorin in ''Film/TheHobbit'' may also qualify, at least to the younger dwarves. None of them are his children, but half of them are fairly closely related to him: four of them are his third cousins (and brothers or first cousins to each other), and Fili and Kili are his nephews.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' - Even after UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, England can't fully get his former protege America off his back. And even more after the Allies are formed and he often has to be the OnlySaneMan... if you stretch the "sane" part a bit.

** Also, DependingOnTheWriter, ComicBook/{{Magneto}} acts like this with the Brotherhood. During his many [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Heel Face Turns]], he becomes a father figure for the X-Men as well. Most notably, when he took over the X-Men after the [[DeathIsCheap death of Charles Xavier]], he found himself struggling with his role as both leader and father figure towards the teenaged mutants.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Phil Coulson, especially towards the younger members of his team. Skye even refers to him as such. One particularly notable occasion has him buying groceries and cooking a meal for Simmons after looking in her fridge and realizing how poorly she was eating [[spoiler: due to the stress of being undercover.]]
* ''Series/TheATeam'' - [[ColonelBadass Col.]] John "Hannibal" 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.

* Cole from ''Webcomic/PvP'' .
* Durkon of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is relatively laid-back ([[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame for a dwarf]]), and his [[AnAdventurerIsYou Cleric]] class kind of makes him the moral centre by default. He's often seen giving fatherly advice and direction to side characters.
** It helps that his patron deity is Thor; a deity that gets up to the kind of shenanigans Thor does tends to be pretty lax on the fire and brimstone unless you really, really fuck up.
