Can this trope be applied to characters who worship a non-relative Big Brother Mentor, or is this strictly for "real" siblings only? For example Konohamaru from Naruto and Ahsoka from Star Wars: The Clone Wars are idolizing their older brother-figures Naruto and Anakin respectively. Do they count?

I don't know about the first one, but I'm pretty sure the Clone Wars example doesn't count because Anakin and Ahsoka are Teacher and Student, not siblings.

Yes they're, but they're also as close as siblings. Even Word of God explicitly described their relationship as a "big brother and younger sister" in numerous interviews.
