* Double subverted in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' when Noah and Rex decided to stay a few days at the Providence training camp called Basic. On the first day, they find that their drill instructor is a fairly nice dude. The next day the learn the hard way that he's only nice on the first day.

* This happens in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' when Noah and Rex decided to stay a few days at the Providence training camp called Basic. Apparently, the drill instructor didn't like the way they brushed their teeth.
--> '''Drill Instructor:''' Where did you maggots learn to brush your teeth?!
--> ''[Rex and Noah do a SpitTake]''
--> '''Drill Instructor:''' Did you just mess up my floor?! ''Lick that up and put it back in your mouths!''

* This backfired badly when {{Private Military Contractor}}s were hired to train the New Iraqi Army. Unfamiliar with this trope, the Iraqi recruits responded badly to being shouted at and abused by foreign Western drill instructors.

* The sergeant major from Creator/MontyPython's ''And Now For Something Completely Different'' is a subversion and a parody of this trope. After an initial dressing down he informs the soldiers that today they will be "marching up and down the square" and keeps threateningly asking them if they have anything better to do. When any of them states that they want to go do something else, he... gives them permission to go off and do it ([[NoIndoorVoice while still shouting at them]]). After a few go off, he asks the remainder if they want to go to the pictures and then tells them to do so, before turning to the camera and saying "Bloody army, don't know what it's coming to!" before marching up and down the square by himself.

* Templar and Illuminati players find themselves on the receiving end of these during their training period in ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld.'' The Templar instructor, Brigadier Lethe, is a classic hardass veteran with a limp and a missing eye, and gives you a very rough and thorough pep-talk on how your powers do ''not'' make you TheChosenOne, before ordering you to test your new powers on a gaggle of chained-up demons. By contrast, Illuminati Director De La Guardia is astonishingly soft-spoken, but even less tolerant of failure: he flat-out warns you that he's not above ''shooting'' recruits who screw up on his watch, and [[ImmortalityHurts given that players are functionally immortal]]...

** On "Inside the Actors Studio" Matthew Broderick said when he played the part earlier on the stage, Will Sadler the actor playing the sergeant as a R. Lee Ermey-style drill instructor, who always yelled. When they did the movie and they cast Walken, he would say his lines in a much slower and oddly cadenced manner, which was actually more scarier!
