* Honoka and Isana from ''Manga/UQHolder'' both call Touta nii-sama, presumably because they have the same last name (there hasn't been anything to suggest that they're actually related to him). Confusingly, Isana calls Honoka "Ojou-sama" (as a reference to [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Konoka and Setsuna]]), despite the fact that they're twin sisters.

* Oboro in ''{{Utawarerumono}}'' puzzles Hakuoro when he begins calling him "aniki", but he just shrugs it off. Really, this is about as respectful as you can expect him to get.

* Being buddies rather than biological brothers, Simon naturally uses "''aniki''" to refer to Kamina on ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', though with the same amount of respect you'd expect from "''onii-sama''". The dub simply uses "bro."
