* [[VideoGame/{{Yakuza}} Goro Majima]] acts as this to [[Manga/MyHeroAcademia Izuku Midoriya]] in the fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13629709/1/Izuku-Midoriya-Mad-Dog-of-Shizuoka Izuku Midoriya, Mad Dog of Shizuoka]], cheering him up and teaching him how to fight despite not having a Quirk (yet). Perhaps out of respect, Izuku begins to adopt some of Majima's character tics (being TheGadfly to Bakugou, faking a KasaiRegionalAccent, [[BatterUp use of a baseball bat]]) as he finishes up middle school and prepares to try and get into U.A.

* Uncle Iroh was this to Zuko during his childhood in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. As a teenager, Zuko initially sees his uncle as more of a buffoon, but eventually comes around to accepting Iroh's guidance, which encourages Zuko to reject his father's philosophies and [[{{Wangst}} lighten up a bit]]. Iroh is implied to have continued this trend with Zuko's daughter, considering that she named her own son after Iroh.
* In the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Bumi is this for Meelo, Ikki and Jinora, much to [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling Tenzin's annoyance]]. Tenzin's sister, Kya, is also a Cool Aunt to Jinora. [[spoiler:Iroh continues to be a mentor from the Spirit Realm, although he and Zuko don't meet.]]

In the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Bumi II is this for Meelo, Ikki and Jinora, much to [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling Tenzin's annoyance]]. Tenzin's sister, Kya, Kya II, is also a Cool Aunt to Jinora. [[spoiler:Iroh continues to be a mentor from the Spirit Realm, although he and Zuko don't meet.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BobHeartsAbishola'': When Bob officially gets engaged to Abishola, his siblings Douglas and Christina discuss this trope, both quite excited to become the fun, chill uncle and aunt to Bob's stepson-to-be, Dele. They're both self-aware enough to realize they're too reckless and irresponsible to be parents, and this is much more their speed. Even before the couple ties the knot, Douglas and Christina are quite lenient towards Dele when he's at their house; Abishola won't let him play video games or eat junk food at home, but the way they see it, what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

Added DiffLines:

* Series/KirbyBuckets has an uncle named Leon who is always willing to do "solids" for other people. At first, Leon's solids seemed to work out great for Kirby, as he got him new subscribers for his web channel, a gourmet crab lunch, a girlfriend, a basketball session with NBA superstar Zach [=LaVine=], new sneakers and a car. Unfortunately, Leon's gifts eventually backfired, as they were all either cheap knockoffs (the sneakers, the crab lunch, the subscribers -- actually inflated by a bot) or outright stolen (the car). It later turned out that he did all of it on purpose because Kirby's mother specifically told him not to contact him. Needless to say, Kirby was amazed his mother was able to come up with such an elaborate scheme.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Mama}}'': Lucas is an ''Extra Cool Uncle'', actually. There's his {{Determinator}} display while his nieces were missing. Even in the film's prologue, he almost flips when he first fears something bad has happened to his nieces, more like a father would than an uncle.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheBarrier'': Marta has cool relatives on both sides. Her her paternal uncle Álex acts more like an older brother to her at times, providing fake a voiceover for the news or tickling her out of nowhere to amuse her. Her mother's twin sister has slightly less leeway to be fun due to needing to pretend to be her mother and planning to leave town soon for the first half of the series, but adores Marta nonetheless.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfRemnant'': Watts seems to strive to be this, serving as a mentor to Blake and getting Jaune alcohol for a party.


* Main character Yuuta Segawa of ''LightNovel/PapaNoIukotoOKikinasai'', whom all three of his nieces admire (one of the girls even has a crush on him), especially when he adopts them.

* Uncle Zucchini from ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo''. He's a fun and friendly guy who is an intergalactic garbage-man.


* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the {{adorkable}} scholar Calcelmo, in Markarth, has his nephew Aicontar working as his assistant. Aicontar is very fond of Calcelmo and looks up to him greatly.

* WesternAnimation/LittleBear has his Uncle Rusty, Father Bear's 'little' brother, a [[GentleGiant huge]] and rustic red bear who works as a logger and visits occasionally; Little Bear admires him greatly.

Added DiffLines:

* In the original Nutcracker, Drosselmeyer is Clara/Marie's godfather; in ''WesternAnimation/BarbieintheNutcracker'' [[GenderFlip Aunt]] Drosselmeyer is not a magician but a world-traveling adventuress whose stories and presents excite Clara, to the disapproval of her grandfather. She also appears to know about Parthenia.
