* In ''VideoGame/MapleStory'', there's Icybyrd Slim, mayor of New Leaf City. While he doesn't seem to be much of an ActionPolitician, he does seem to be the brains behind every project in the city, which is populated by {{Bounty Hunter}}s, {{Adventurer Archaeologist}}s and {{Ditzy Genius}}es.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' - After a galaxy-rocking (literally) breakup with Shayera at the end of season two, ComicBook/GreenLantern John Stewart shaved his head in time for ''Unlimited''. The first episode of the revamp put him in leading a small team of greener heroes, and his status as founding member frequently made him a go-to guy in a crisis.

* ''UltimateMarvel'': Ultimate ComicBook/NickFury, who was explicitly based off of Creator/SamuelLJackson with his permission, and played by him in the 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]]

* Roy in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is black in a family of bald men and the leader of his team, although he's a bit [[LargeHam more hammy]] and ''much'' [[DeadpanSnarker more snarky]] than usual examples of this trope. The King of Nowhere also qualifies (which is one of the reasons Roy was confused with him at on point), for what we seem of him in a flashback panel.

* Played with on ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''. [[Creator/AndreBraugher Captain Holt]] is not quite bald, but he has a very short-buzz cut and possesses the standard personality of this character (authoritative, serious, commanding, etc.). On the other hand, Sgt. Jeffords (Terry Crews) actually is bald, but is less imposing and authoritative personality-wise and is a bit more neurotic than the standard example of the trope.
** But by season 3, Captain Holt is almost completely bald.
