* Thor and Loki from ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor''. Beneath the centuries of SiblingRivalry and CainAndAbel behavior, they truly do see each other as brothers.

* Thor and Loki from ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor''.''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', despite being brothers through adoption. Beneath the centuries of SiblingRivalry and CainAndAbel behavior, they truly do see each other as brothers. Thor is more open about it and at times, the only person willing to still give Loke a chance. Meanwhile, while Loki indulges in screwing with Thor, Loki tends to become pretty unstable when something happens to his brother (and in fact, when Thor had his existence magically replaced, Loki was the only one to be suspicious of the Not-Thor, even if he didn't know why.)

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', Crona uses [[AmbiguousGender hir]] madness to prevent Maka and Black★Star from matching soul wavelengths with their [[EquippableAlly weapons]], but Maka still manages to wield [[DotingParent Spirit]]. Spirit explains to confused Crona that the bond between a parent and child can never be broken. However, it is also stated that while parent-child resonance is stable it may not be as powerful as resonance between individuals with different backgrounds and characters.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'', one of the few things that Donald and Scrooge can agree upon is that they both ''hate'' Gladstone Gander, for his being both a LuckyBastard and a SmugSnake who revels in having such impossibly good fortune that he never has to do anything to fend for himself. Despite this, they'll still go out of their way to help him if he gets into trouble.

** Gamlen comes close to referencing this trope by name while averting it, actually.

** Gamlen comes close to referencing this trope by name while averting it, actually. He does however play it straight with his desperation if [[spoiler: he is picked to help find Leana after the SerialKiller gets her and more cheerfully, if you opt to reunite him with his long-lost daughter.]]

* There is a common belief that the original quote was actually "The blood of the covenant [or battlefield] is thicker than the water of the womb," which would have been an inversion; however, this is actually an UrbanLegend and the earliest known versions of the quote (dating back to 12th century Germany) are played straight.
