* In Creator/HenryVogel's ''[[Literature/ScoutsHonor Scout's Law]]'', when Jade complains that she told [[spoiler:Chris]] that he's too injured to help, David puts him under her orders; when he objects that she's a civilian, David (despite her being no more than an ordinary person with a medical kit) commissions her as a medic to give her the authority.

* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/CountToATrillion'', Menelaus can talk casually with the effective ruler of Earth. When he must be examined by a doctor, he finds it much harder to assert himself.

* In ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''Fanfic/WhyandWere'', Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes is patched up in the field by an Igor and ignores his advice not to put any strain on a broken forearm. She concludes her contract by firing a powerful crossbow, and the recoil and stress re-breaks the arm. The Guild's Matron Igorina is suitably sarcastic and acerbic.

** For ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' an additional wrinkle was thrown in: due to personnel losses in the first episode, the ship's doctor is a hologram. As such, the captain ''could'' just shut him down if she doesn't want to follow his orders -- or even reprogram him, as happened to his counterpart on the ''Equinox''. The problem, as touched upon in [[ResetButton one episode that didn't actually happen in the end]] is that while Janeway ''usually'' is sane enough to keep her rebellions against doctor's order to small things like dragging her feet about having check-ups, there's nothing saying that will still be the case when she is unhealthy enough that she ''should'' be relieved of command.
