* ''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.

** ''VideoGame/HaloWars'' has Captain Cutter and Sergeant Forge.

* ''ComicBook/DeffSkwadron'' inverts this as much as possible with both being orks: Uzgob is the Skwadron Kommanda, cheerfully ordering his boyz to fire on (vaguely) friendly targets (and personally trying to shoot [[TheStarscream Raznuts]]), while his smartboy navigator Gimzod is the one telling the story. And then there's Killboy, who despite ''not'' being a smartboy actually manages to sound high(er)-class than any other ork.
--> '''Uzgob:''' Killboy! Ain't you dead yet?\\
'''Killboy:''' Minor wounds, sir. Nuthin' the mediks and a few more bionik bitz can't fix. 'Avin' survived the destruction of my own bomma an' liberated this 'ere enemy aircraft I wuz just about to take off an' re-kommence attackin' the target when you blew it up, sir!

* The Blue King, Reisi Munakata, and his second, Seri Awashima, in ''Anime/{{K}}''. Munakata is always rather genteel, while Awashima is always the one to suggest more drastic measures.
--> '''Munakata:''' I want all our eyes and ears on this. \\
'''Awashima:''' Of course. And if our eyes and ears don't quickly produce results, we shall eliminate them.
