* The comic book adaptation of TheThrawnTrilogy has Grand Admiral Thrawn doing this often. That, or [[RightHandCat cradling and stroking a creature]] that is probably intended to be a ysalamiri. Notably he doesn't do much of either in the novels, but Magnificent Bastards steeple, and Thrawn is a Magnificent Bastard, so "steepled" is the second-most common way his hands are drawn in the comic, in other official art, and in fanart. The ''most'' common way his hands are positioned is undeniably clasped behind his back, a gesture of restraint. Notably you can't clasp your hands behind your back while sitting, and steepling just looks stupid when you're standing up.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Gendo does this so often than even in his dreams in chapter 5 Shinji imagines his father tenting his fingers:
-->''Prince Shinji kneeled before the throne of his father, King Gendo of Tokyo-3, who sat on his great basalt and onyx throne, his gloved fingers pursed to form a triangle.''
