* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Warcraft III]]: The Frozen Throne'' Subverted. While the game introduce [[FantasticRacism Grand Marshal Garithos]], who leads the last remnants of the Alliance of Lordaeron, and can fight Balnazzar, the most powerful Demon currently in the area to a standstill. It's heavily implied he rise to the rank of Grand Marshal not necessary because of his own abilities, but his father's reputation and title, and he happen to be the only highest-ranking survivor of Lordaeron military after the Scourge's rampage across the land. While he has many success in driving the Scourge out of Lordaeron, it's not without the aid from Ironforge and the ruined Quel'Thalas, and after he attempted to purge the Blood Elves from his ranks. His campaign met with nothing, but obstacles and failure, as Garithos and his entire forces was enslaved by the dreadlords, Detheroc and Balnazzar, become a mere pawn for sometime until the "real" four-star badass Sylvanas Windrunner, who used to be a ranger-general step in.

** Any Chaos Lord ever. Chaos Space Marines are superhuman genetically-engineered warriors with centuries (or even ''millennia'') of fighting experience and daemonic blessings to make them even more badass than loyalist Space Marines, and many of them are also murderously insane. They do ''not'' abide weak leaders and any Lord who loses the respect of the warband and/or the favour of the dark gods ''will'' wind up dead at the hands of someone who thinks they can do a better job. Abbadon the Despoiler is the Warmaster of all Chaos, commander of the Black Crusades and one of the most dangerous and powerful beings in the entire galaxy - on the tabletop he's a horrific close-combat beatstick capable of munching through entire squads on his own without being scratched and easily killing just about any other character in the game 1v1.

* Admiral James T. Kirk in the first four ''Franchise/StarTrek'' movies, and his TOS crew is GenreSavvy enough to know it. When a new ensign protests Kirk's last minute command orders in ''The Motion Picture'', Uhura coolly and effectively shuts him down with one sentence:

** Captain Kaff Tagon and his father, General Karl Tagon. The former has his own mercenary company, which has played a pivotal role in almost every modern (for the comic) conflict. The latter is retired, pushing 70, and still remains in fighting condition, even when reduced to a head in a jar.

The latter is retired, pushing 70, and still remains in fighting condition, even when reduced to a head in a jar. Karl was pivotal during the Celeschul Terraforming Wars (the same conflict that gained him his rank), to the point that many historians claim that the rebels lost the war the moment their brutal first strike failed to kill him. [[BrokenAce Karl Tagon does not agree with this assessment]].

** In ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'', Grand Admiral Thrawn. He was the mysterious alien Grand Admiral who, five years after ReturnOfTheJedi, returned from the Unknown Regions to breathe life back into the flagging Empire, and listing off all the things that make him awesome would take a while, but there's a reason why he was one of the (many, many, many) pictures on the MagnificentBastard page.
