* Justified in the case of Seija Kijin from ''{{Touhou}}'': Since she's an [[{{youkai}} Amanojaku]], being a contrarian who opposes everyone she interacts with is a part of her very nature. It extends so far that [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad she likes what others hate, and hates herself when she makes others happy]]. This personality trait, of course, makes her very disliked, a fact she loves.

* In ''ShinMegamiTensei'', your two male allies represent law and chaos respectively, and wants you to go along with their ideology; as such, whenever you make a decision leaning in one direction, the other ally will call you out for it. For example, when a beggar asks you for money, refusing will result in the law hero criticizing you for your lack of compassion; but if you agree then the chaos hero will protest that it's a waste of money and you need it better yourself.

** The Republicans may end up being VindicatedByHistory due to looking back on Obama's presidency, noticing that he tried to avoid angering anybody, and ended up doing the opposite.

** General Bauer, who briefly takes over Stargate Command definitely comes off as this. He intentionally sets off a Naquadah Bomb on a Naquadah-rich planet against all objections on how dangerous this is, then seems suprised when it causes the entire planet to be destroyed and send deadly radiation back through the Stargate.

* Colonel Campbell in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty, possibly Raiden's only tether to the Snake saga and the mission at large, frequently deflects any critical questions about the mission from Raiden, and adamantly insists that Solid Snake is dead and "not factored into the simulation". No matter how valid Raiden's objections are, he can't win, and [[ButThouMust can only proceed]] along a predetermined, rail-roaded path through the facility. [[spoiler:This "Colonel" turns out to be an AI manipulating Raiden into carrying out The Patriots' orders. By the time they spell it all out for him, it's already too late. [[XanatosSpeedChess Every possible action Raiden can take - including suicide - is a winning move for them]].]]

** In point of fact, ''all'' of the first officers of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series usually act like this, especially with regard to the [[{{AlienNon-InterferenceClause}} Prime Directive]]. Picard, at least, believes that that is the job of the first officer: to contradict and question the captain when necessary -- which (as he notes in "Encounter At Farpoint") is why he picked Riker (who had such an incident on his record). Starfleet captains are supposed to pick an executive officer that should have a different personality (although one he can get along with). This because Starfleet captains have a fairly loose leash, and as such there should always be a second opinion on if the choices they make are the right ones.

* Grif usually plays this role for Sarge in ''RedVsBlue'', though Grif is usually justified in that Sarge is an AxCrazy [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] who makes killing off Grif his priority in his plans, no matter how detrimental it would be to the situation.
