In villainous organisations, a BigBad who is WickedCultured, AffablyEvil or otherwise [[NonActionBigBad physically non-threatening]] is likely to have a more aggressive and in-your-face {{Dragon}} to put [[VillainousDemotivator the fear of god]] into his {{Mooks}} and the good guys alike; see TheHeavy.

* In ''Series/BostonPublic'', the principal is smooth (shaved head!) and tactful, while the VP is a strict disciplinarian with a knack for intimidating... and the funny thing is that the principal is just a scowl away from being a Scary Black Man, while the VP is a short, slim and normally unremarkable white guy.

* 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]]''.
