* Kanga fits this trope in Literature/WinnieThePooh, being [[SmurfettePrinciple the only girl of the main cast]], being [[WomenAreWiser the most sensible of the main cast]] (at least [[AdaptionDisplacement in the Disney adaptations]], in the original books she can be [[SubvertedTrope as reckless as everybody else]]) and being the actual mother of Roo, plus the [[HappilyAdopted adoptive]] mother of Tigger. Rabbit also fills this trope albeit to a much lesser degree, as WordOfGod states that he and Owl were not based on one of the real Christopher Robin's toys, but on what A. A. Milne believed Christopher viewed as being his mother and father, respectively.

* ''InDeath'': Dr. Mira. She has explicitly told Eve in ''Judgment In Death'' that she considers her a surrogate daughter.
* Mina Harker serves this role in Bram Stoker's ''{{Dracula}}''. It's a little muddled at times, what with her also being the DistressedDamsel, but it really shows at the beginning of the third act. With team morale failing, Mina talks to each of the men and convinces them to keep fighting, not just for her sake, but to avenge fallen friends and to cleanse the world of evil.

** Hens when kept as pets can get this way too; when around someone she knows particularly well, a domestic hen will sometimes [[CuddleBug snuggle up to the person]] to keep said them warm if they get close enough, as if the human was one of her chicks. Because in her eyes, the human ''is'' one of her chicks.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', Misato becomes this to her squad of teen mecha pilots. She leads them, looks after them and plays the peacemaker when they argue or fight. During the War, she takes Shinji and Asuka in. After the War, [[spoiler:the four fourteen-year-old kids have not relatives or friends left, and she becomes their caretaker, not giving a damn about what other people could think.]]

* Go, the Knight of Fire in {{Pretear}} takes on the TeamMom role for the Leafe Knights. He's not the team leader, but he's the one consistently making sure that the three child knights (and magical girl Himeno) are fed, napped, and kept out of trouble. Even the more important main knights defer to Go when it comes to field calls for the kids. By the end of the series, Go [[spoiler: (sends the kids away from the main battle so that some remnant of the Knights will survive to carry on the fight.)]]

* ''TheBigBangTheory'''s Penny is occasionally roped into this, as she is too sympathetic to refuse the job. Usually ends up getting stuck with [[ManChild Sheldon]] when no one else wants to deal with him. She's even taken to calling him "sweetie" in a kind, yet extremely patronizing, manner. This was especially emphasized in the episode "The Guitarist Amplification," where Sheldon runs away to the comic book store, because he can't bear hearing Penny and Leonard fighting. And again after Penny and Leonard break up, he acts like a child whose parents just divorced, complete with an ersatz custody battle.
* Male example: Sergeant Carwood Lipton (played by Donnie Wahlberg) from ''BandOfBrothers'', as he most often is the one looking out for Easy Company.

* Alex from ''AshesToAshes''. Pretty much her entire role in the third series is to sort out the problems of the other characters, and she is the one who offers advice and a shoulder to cry on throughout. There is the distinct implication throughout the first and second series of a lack of balance in the team when she isn't there which is supported by the way it falls apart after Gene shoots her, and the team members are so protective of her that physical or verbal slights towards her committed by outsiders have resulted in [[TortureForFunAndInformation severe beatings]], death, and an ''eleven-year-old school boy'' being thrown in a cell. Almost [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] twice:

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', each country gets a TeamMom, and each "army mother" does her "job" in different ways:
** Despite being a MsFanservice and [[TheTease a huge tease]], BadassPrincess Camilla easily fills this role for the Nohr faction. She's implied to have been a ParentalSubstitute for Leo and Elise, is a BenevolentBoss to Beruka and Selena, teases her prospect husband [[spoiler: Takumi]] by trying to feed him like a kid, and some of her lines towards enemies have her talking to them as if they were naughty children that she's about to spank.
** Prince Takumi's retainer Oboro is this for the Hoshido group since she's often seen checking on the group's supplies, taking care of others, and even being a little nagging once in a while. She tells Takumi's brother Ryoma that this is her way to show her care and support for the army, and if they reach S support he will tell Oboro that he fell in love with her while witnessing how hard she works for others.
