** 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.

** All of Shepard's surviving squad throughout the trilogy qualify as well by the end:
*** Ashley/Kaidan follow Shepard's footsteps into becoming a Spectre, and are even seen actually ordering the ''Council'' around during the Cerberus invasion.
*** Vega was already essentially this before his botched operation, but later becomes an N7 and is on his way to becoming this again.

end:



*** Javik was already the Avatar of Vengeance for the Prothean people, and generally in charge of other Protheans in the flashbacks seen in-game.
*** Liara is the [[spoiler: Shadow Broker]], and in command of a vast information network which she uses to help the allied cause.



*** Similarly, Grunt is the leader of Aralakh Company, an elite special forces group whose leader is determined by AsskickingEqualsAuthority.
*** Miranda is not in command of much on her own, but if she survives she uses her scientific brilliance from her Lazarus days to coordinate work on the Crucible.
*** Kasumi can be convinced to do the same and assist the Crucible effort.
*** Zaeed commands a mercenary army that he takes into battle against Cerberus, and later into the main war effort as well.
*** Jacob is responsible for protecting a cell of ex-Cerberus defectors, who also later contribute their work to the Crucible while under Alliance protection from Cerberus reprisals.
*** Jack is in charge of a group of Grissom Academy elite biotic students that are later sent to the front (Shepard can encourage that they be used in support roles, however, although they are still on the front lines).



*** Samara is largely the only exception in that she doesn't directly ''command'' anyone during the trilogy, but as a Justicar she can largely bring any asari legal authorities under her jurisdiction at will.
*** If Mordin survives, he will join the Crucible project as a head authority, like Miranda.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Admiral Anderson and Shepard fight their way through the Reaper invasion of Earth, and then Anderson stays behind to lead the Resistance personally. Seeing that he was the first graduate of the N7 commando program in the Alliance Marines, he definitely qualifies once he gets his admiral's stars.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Shepard is this is all but name. While s/he still technically holds the rank of Commander, s/he still stands toe-to-toe with admirals of other races and is essentially, along with Hackett, the leader of the allied forces in the war against the Reapers. [[BigGood Certainly the reason they are united and who they look to.]] In the end, Hackett ends up commanding the entirety of the space fleet and Shepard commands the allied ground forces.

** At the end of season 4, Treister hands command of The OSI over to Col. Hunter Gathers--a man who was inspired by HunterSThompson. It's a given that he'll embody this trope.

* The Player in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' can become General of the Minutemen barely 20 minutes into the game, though how much weight that title carries depends on how much asskicking you do on Minutemen behalf. Doubly so for the male player, who served in the US Army during the reclamation of Alaska in the pre-war world.

** The Battle of Blackwater features no less than four: King Stannis who leads the assault from the very front, Tyrion Lannister who leads the desperate counterattack against him, and Loras Tyrell and Tywin Lannister who combine their respective armies into a massive cavalry charge to save the city.
