* Brock Samson from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', despite being a macho brute of a {{badass}} action hero, has quite clearly taken up the role of Hank and Dean's parental figure; he's responsible for the feeding and clothing of the kids (and their father) and in one episode can be seen checking the boys over for head lice as he outlines a combat plan to one of his colleagues. Hank, at least, also looks up to him and asks him for advice.

* [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade George Westinghouse]] in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'': in the season 1 finale, he finds himself in a fatherly role towards a large band of TrueCompanions, consisting of his own friend NikolaTesla/UsefulNotes, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink Sally Sparrow]], [[WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury Beth Lestrade]], and the [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Baker Street Irregulars]]. [[spoiler:So much so that he gives the bride away at Beth's official wedding.]]

** ''HajimeNoIppo'' - Genji Kamogawa (Kamogawa Gym), also a BadassGrandpa. Sendoh's trainer Yanaoka (Naniwa Gym), Ozma's coach Hachinohe (Hachinohe Gym; Ozma ''does'' nickname him "dad" in canon), Volg's trainer Ramuda and [[spoiler: Eiji Date (Nakadai Gym) after he retires]] are quite younger versions of the trope.

* The character "Competitive Dad" from ''TheFastShow'' takes the concept and blows it up to a ludicrous extreme.

* ''{{Cyborg 009}}'' - Dr. Isaac Gilmore and Dr. Koizumi. Chang Changku (Cyborg 006) has traits of both this ''and'' a male TeamMom (''hilariously'' lampshaded in an episode of the 2001 series).

** ''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]].
