* The main character of ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Tavi, is the calm, refined, [[GuileHero highly intelligent]] and [[TheCallPutMeOnHold singularly unpowered]] [[TheCaptain captain]]; his primary lieutenants are the absurdly powerful BoisterousBruiser Maximus and the cynical, grizzled veteran centurion Valiar Marcus. This is one of the subversions, though-- Tavi is probably [[BadassNormal the most dangerous of the lot]], due to a combination of intellect, [[CrazyEnoughToWork creativity]], training, and sheer {{badass}} [[RefugeInAudacity audacity]].

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' has the mother-like Captain Takamachi Nanoha and the gruff FieryRedhead Vice-Captain Vita. However, do not try to push your luck with Nanoha. [[MilitaryMaverick Risk the safety of the team by ignoring her advice and orders enough times]] and you will learn why [[FanNickname fans call her]] [[GoodIsNotSoft the White Devil]]. Their partnership proves so successful, in fact, that they seem to have made it a permanent arrangement in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid ViVid]]'' and ''[[Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce Force]]''.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' features a paramilitary group variation--this is Professor X's and Mystique's dynamic with the X-Men in the final scene. Xavier is AFatherToHisMen who looks after his protégés as individuals, while it's Raven's duty as the SergeantRock to discipline the team so that it functions smoothly as a unit. It suits not only their roles, but their personalities as well: Charles is very sentimental and enjoys being affectionate, while Mystique was influenced by Magneto and she had adopted his mindset that the successful completion of a mission is much more important than sentiment.

* Inverted in the book ''EndersGame'', and Ender even has a psychological reason for it: mercy and good consequences should come from his troops' immediate commanders, discipline and bad consequences from he, Ender, as the overall commander, mainly so it bonds his squads into tighter units willing to protect each other.
