* The villain of a ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' DirectToDVD movie is Killbas, the even more AxCrazy and {{Sadist}}ic older brother of series BigBad Evolto.

* The [[spoiler:Elder Princess Shroob]] in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time]]''. [[spoiler:Whereas the younger princess fights atop a [[TripodTerror tripod-mounted throne]] and resorts to magical attacks when knocked off of it, the elder is a hulking brute who is quite content to simply shoulder tackle her enemies before [[OneWingedAngel transforming into a gigantic tentacled monster]] for the final battle.]]


* An AntiHero example, Nanami from ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' is by leagues stronger than her brother Shichika. When she was younger, her father refused to train her in the Kyoutoryuu style, not because she was a girl, not because she was [[IllGirl always sick]], but because she's far too strong for him.



* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the younger brother Alphonse has been always stronger than his brother Edward in combat, even before he became a suit of AnimatedArmor. On the other hand, Edward is the better alchemist and uses it in battle, too.

* A heroic example in ''Manga/OnePiece''; Sanji's siblings, Reiju, Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji, are all genetically modified warriors who have special abilities of their own, and have a metallic outer skeleton that makes them harder to hit [[spoiler:because they were all experimented on by their father, Judge]]. As children, the Vinsmoke boys made sure to lord their superiority over Sanji by verbally and physically abusing him whenever they get the chance, while Reiju [[spoiler:pretended to]] laughs at his torment [[spoiler:yet was ultimately responsible for helping Sanji get to East Blue by using her enhanced strength to free him from the dungeons]]. Ironically, ''Sanji'' became the stronger sibling during his time with the Straw Hats, to the point where he could fly without the aid of Germa 66's technology. He would've beaten his asshole family members into submission [[spoiler:had Judge not pulled a trump card and blackmailed Sanji into submission in return for not sending assassins after Baratie]]. Later, karma bites them in the ass when [[spoiler:Sanji saves them all from being executed by Big Mom's family despite having every reason to abandon them, leaving the Vinsmokes indebted to the family "failure"]].

* {{''VideoGame/Overwatch''}}: Zigzagged with Hanzo and Genji. Hanzo was Genji's AlwaysSomeoneBetter growing up and nearly killed him in a duel in their youth. When they meet as adults and duel again, Genji, now a cyborg, manages to defeat his brother. However, it is implied that even with his cybernetic enhancements, the only reason Genji stood a chance is because Hanzo vowed to never wield a sword again after (seemingly) murdering his brother, and so now uses a bow, [[WorfHadTheFlu which he is less effective with]].
