* Admiral Briggs from {{VideoGame/Call Of Duty Black Ops 2}} is a four-star admiral in charge of SEAL Team Six, who spends much of the game giving you orders over the radio and chewing you out if you fail the optional strike force missions.

* Former Mayor of Newark, NJ and current U.S. Senator from UsefulNotes/NewJersey (and, after an especially RousingSpeech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, one of ''the'' national rising stars of the Democratic Party) Cory Booker. He backs it up with some real-life heroics, too; most famously, while Mayor of Newark, he stopped his car on his way to work to save a woman from a house fire, suffering smoke inhalation and second-degree burns on his hands.

* USS ''Kelvin's'' commander, Captain Robau in the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek''. His ethnicity isn't given in the movie, though it is obvious he's of Asian/Middle Eastern ethnicity (the actor is Faran Tahir, a Pakistani-American). Notable in that the character appears for less than 10 minutes and speaks maybe two paragraphs of dialogue, and yet is a full-fledged MemeticBadass.

* UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan, arguably, is black and bald and was the uncontested leader of his team, his league, and, well, his sport's history.
** And after retiring (the second time), he became a team president with the Washington Wizards, ended up making ''another'' comeback with his new team, then later became first a minority owner and then the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, who coincidentally made the playoffs for the first time in their brief team history the year that he became majority owner. So yeah, he probably qualifies.
** Other top NBA players who fit the trope include Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kevin Garnett. Kobe Bryant comes pretty close, but he usually has at least a little fuzz going on. (Basketball would seem to have an edge over other team sports for this trope due to the lack of headgear.)

* ''UltimateMarvel'': Ultimate ComicBook/NickFury, who was explicitly based off of Creator/SamuelLJackson with his permission, and played by him in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. (Fury is, of course, white and has hair in mainstream continuity.) Fittingly, the artists [[ArtEvolution started depicting him with a shaved head]] around the same time that he became the leader of ComicBook/TheUltimates; in his first appearance in ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'', when he was still a S.H.I.E.L.D. field agent, he had a fade haircut.[[note]] Surprisingly enough, [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness he wasn't always modeled after Samuel L. Jackson]][[/note]]
