* On ''Series/TheXFiles'', this is the idea that surrounds Mulder. He's mocked behind his back and sometimes to his face about his fascination with the paranormal, but his originally work for the FBI had nothing to do with that at all. His nickname "Spooky" is fitting for his work on the X-Files, but he actually got the nickname because he had amazing profiler skills--he was so good he was "Spooky". It's mentioned several times that he was the Violent Crimes Section's Golden Boy before the X-Files and that many were dissapointed when he left. At one point, a superior defends Mulder when an agent mocks him, saying that the agent could even learn from Mulder. Scully admits early on that even though his methods are "out there", he's a great agent. He's also seen helping out other FBI teams during the series; the cases always turn out to be X-Files, but they don't start out that way.

This is the trope for the StockPhrase and its variants and parodies only. Examples of the trope itself go under UltimateJobSecurity. Compare ClosestThingWeGot, where there may be better qualified candidates, but there's not enough time to get another one.

* ''MassEffect'' describes a Commander Shepard with the "ruthless" background as being exactly this. Despite being infamously known as the "Butcher of Torfan", it's a trait (similarly with the other backgrounds) that also makes him/her the #1 human Spectre candidate.
