** Believe it or not, ''Megatron'' is actually this in quite a few versions, albeit a gruff aloof one.

* TrainingFromHell aside, Wrestling/KarlGotch was said to be good to his students, one of which, Masami Soranaka, was his actual son in law. Ironically, the students he liked the least, Wrestling/AkiraMaead, Wrestling/AntonioInoki and Wrestling/NobuhikoTakada, were among the most successful.

* On the first [=BattlARTS=] show, Wrestling/YoshiakiFujiwara referred to the promotion's founders as his sons. These were the same men who had left the Fujiwara Gumi promotion in droves after complaining about the management team Fujiwara had hired.
* Wrestling/{{KENTA|Kobayashi}} was this to No Mercy in Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH, sticking by his stablemates even when he was told to go home and rehabilitate injuries, even when they were soon to leave due to not renewing their contracts and most detrimentally, [[GenreBlind even]] when one Maybach Taniguchi all but admitted his plans to replace KETNA![[/folder]]

* Shi-Long Lang from ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'' takes this to comedic levels. He does a roll call with his men, and when they start counting off "1! 2! 3! etc." he stops them, because all of his men are #1 in his book. [[BrickJoke The next time he does a roll call later in the game]], his men count off "1! 1! 1! etc." instead. He also gives a birthday present to one of his men, who says he is grateful, but it's not his birthday. Lang then says that he knows that, and the present isn't for him, it's for his younger brother's wife's younger brother! It's played more seriously when [[spoiler:he takes a bullet for his second-in-command, who had just revealed herself as TheMole, because she was still his subordinate and he feels it's his duty to protect his subordinates at any cost. Then he arrests her]]. All of this, of course, inspires UndyingLoyalty in his men ([[spoiler:except for TheMole, obviously]]), who address him with great reverence as "Shifu".

* The vast majority of the ''Film/XMen'' view Xavier as a father-figure, and he in return treats them like his own children. His tendency to act as a ParentalSubstitute and BadassTeacher has reinforced UndyingLoyalty amongst his students, starting with the boys in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and extending all the way to the BadFuture of 2023 in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''.

* In ''Film/OHomemDaCapaPreta'', almost literally, as in real life, many of Tenório´s bodyguards and supporters were in fact close family relations or aquaintances from his state in the Brazilian Northeast and around Caxias favelas.

** Lets not forget ''God''. All of his followers are his children. He guides and comforts them, and some believe he even died for them.

* ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'': This trope is Deconstructed by Carbon de Castel-Jaloux attitude (see the quote of Sun Tzu in literature above): He is the captain of the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Cadets of Gascony]], a nobleman who pays his own company, so he only is obliged to obey his superiors in military matters. He is troubled at the Siegue of Arras, because all his men (to whom he refers as his sons!) are starving. His superior, The Marshal of Gassion, Count De Guiche, asks him to punish his men for disrespecting a superior officer (himself). Using his prerogative, Carbon de Castel-Jaloux chooses not to. After that, De Guiche informs him that his company is the bait in a gambit that can win the battle. Carbon de Castel-Jaloux is completely willing with the plan to send all his company to death because that is what a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Gascon soldier is supposed to do]]. Notice that if he has punished his men – soldiers in an army are supposed to respect a superior, no matter how despicable they found him - his company would not have been picked to fight a suicide mission.
