** Likewise, the [=PowerFX=] Vocaloids have [=V2=] characters Sweet Ann and Big Al to act as the parents of their little group.

Added DiffLines:

* Kanan and Hera in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' very much act like parents to Ezra, Sabine, and Zeb. They even call themselves "Mom and Dad" one time.


* Piper and Leo from ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' started to fulfill these roles after they got married and Prue died.

* Meiko and Kaito in ''Music/{{Vocaloid}}'' fanon, presumably due to the fact that of the Crypton Future Media Vocaloids, they're the "oldest" and most mature looking. Kaito is typically seen as the Vocaloids' [[BumblingDad bumbling]] TeamDad while Meiko plays a [[WomenAreWiser wiser]] but [[HairTriggerTemper more aggressive]] [[TeamMom mother figure]].

Very occasionally, Meiko will be depicted as a less responsible HardDrinkingPartyGirl while Kaito is the responsible one.


* Katara and Zuko are this in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Katara as the TeamMom is the most caring of the group, often to the point of being naggy. She can easily pass herself off as actual Aang's mother, and Sokka even says to Toph that Katara had replaced Kya in his mind. Zuko is the TeamDad, he is caring but not sentimental like Katara is. He is instead focused on discipline and order within the group. He encourages Aang to work out problems on his own and breaks up a fight between Toph and Bumi. Zuko and Katara are seen discussing on how best to deal with Aang's obsession with Sokka's non-benders club, and they take over leadership when he temporarily disappears in the finale.

Added DiffLines:

** Kuro and Keito also compare themselves to parents in Quarrel Fest, looking over their energetic junior Souma. Here, though, strict but sometimes hot-headed Keito is definitely TeamDad and level-headed, empathetic Kuro is definitely TeamMom.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'', Chiaki and Kanata sometimes refer to themselves as the mum and dad of Ryuuseitai, given that they're the two third-years in a unit also populated by three first-years. It is admitted that it's not clear who would be the mum and who the dad, though, given they both are very much on the [[CloudCuckooLander quirky]] side.

Added DiffLines:

** What makes this even better is the fact that Noctis will sometimes tease Ignis by saying "what're you, my mother?" when the latter nags him to be sure he purchases enough supplies for their journey. Additionally, at least from this troper's experience, many fanfictions also take this viewpoint and will make fun of/treat Gladio and Ignis as the TeamDad and TeamMom, respectively.

* No other ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game has had anywhere near so clear Designated Parents as Gladio, a macho and protective TeamDad, and Ignis, a domestic and neurotic TeamMom, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. (The other two party members, Noctis and Prompto, are more childish in personality as well as being [[TeensAreShort shorter]].)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' has Hotch (TheLeader) and Rossi (the CoolOldGuy), who the team jokingly refer to as 'mom and dad' on at least one occasion. Hotch is TheStoic and rather authoritarian, making him the TeamDad to Rossi's more emotional and empathetic TeamMom.


* Katara is this in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. She's the most caring of the group, often to the point of being naggy. Sokka even says as much to Toph in one episode.

The former is the team leader who controls the finances of their journey, and exercise discipline on {{Man Child}}ren Goku and Gojyo by beating them up when they start bickering (usually over food). Hakkai is the gentle medic who typically cleans up after the rest of the guys.
