** Colonel Douglas "Duke" Ellington, the [[CoolPlane F-19 Ghostrider]] pilot who provided the main point of view character for the central front air war in Germany and the Soviet colonel commanding the MiG-29 regiment at Keflavik both also qualify (both demonstrate their AcePilot skills numerous times, the MiG-29 regiment CO survives leading his pilots in a battle against two full squadrons of F-14 Tomcats at one point, while Ellington also gets to demonstrate his all-around badassery by managing to successfully escape and evade after being shot down over hostile territory late in the war).

* During the "War In the Sun" arc of ''ComicBook/Preacher'', Herr Starr uses his contacts in the American Military to grant him a battalion of soldiers to hunt down Jesse in the American Southwest. When Starr makes one too many dismissive comments towards the battalion's commander, said commander makes it clear that he could care less what connections or position Starr has and threatens to personally cut out Starr's liver and fry it if even one soldier is harmed.

***From Shadow Warfare onward, Colonel Philip Locke takes the reigns of leadership from Dalton after she has made questionable decisions during the course of the season and becomes the official leader after her untimely death. Colonel Phillip Locke is a 30 year veteran of the British Army and served in every conflict Britain was involved in during that time. Stonebridge is clearly impressed that Locke is involved in their mission. Locke then proves his reputation correct when he singlehandly saves Major Dalton from a hitman. When the team are ambushed at an airport, Locke's response is to go on the offensive and kill everything (until getting attacked from behind). Later, when forced to dig his own grave, he instead kills the men guarding him, and nearly escaped on his own. And even while wounded and being tortured, and offered the name of the man who killed his son, he still won't give up NATO secrets.

* William H. Kraft of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is an [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric]] example, since he considers himself a subject of the German Emperor and leads his armored battalion through the campaign to defend New York dressed in a blue, late 19th-century Prussian greatcoat and Pickelhaube. Notwithstanding, he is both a savvy political operator and an absolutely terrifying enemy.
