* Captain Ed Cutler in ''Literature/TheLongEarth''. Considers any American who settled on the Long Earth to be basically a traitor, and had to be stopped from firing on civilians in ''The Long War'', and exotic fauna in ''The Long Mars''. There's a lampshading ShoutOut near the end of ''The Long Mars'': Mac sarcastically suggests that Cutler drinks grain alcohol and rainwater; "Got to maintain the purity of those bodily fluids." Cutler doesn't get the reference.

[[caption-width-right:339:SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom? [[ComicBook/NormanOsborn The Green Goblin?]] The '' '''[[BoldInflation real]]''' menace is those '''damn superheroes'''!''[[note]]But then again, this panel is from a ''WhatIf'' story that ends with Ben Grimm now an insane rampaging menace as the Thing with the equivalent strength of the Hulk. [[AllTheOtherReindeer But this]] ''[[AllTheOtherReindeer is]]'' the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, so many of you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference if we didn't tell you.[[/note]]]]

Terrorist attack? Gotta be Enemy X. Monster attack? It must have been working for Enemy X. That new SuperHero that just [[FlyingBrick flew]] into town? Obviously a spy for Enemy X! Everything quiet on the front? Enemy X is just lulling us into complacency so he can strike when our guard is down!! Does it look like Enemy X is trying to surrender? It's a trick!!! [[InterruptedCooldownHug Shoot 'em while they're distracted!!!!]] Wait, you say Enemy X was defeated last year? Sure, that's just what ''[[GovernmentConspiracy they]]'' want you to think!!!!!

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Most of the [[TheEmpire Imperial]] generals and admirals are like this.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Most ''Film/AFewGoodMen'': This is involved in Colonel Jessup's justification for ordering a hazing that resulted in the death of one of his Marines (partially due to an undiagnosed heart defect). Commanding the US garrison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, he seems to have become stuck in the UsefulNotes/ColdWar (the movie was made in TheNineties) and is obsessed with defending America from the DirtyCommies on the other side of the [[TheEmpire Imperial]] generals and admirals are like this.barbed wire.

*** It's a running joke among ''Trek'' fans that any Starfleet Admiral with a speaking role will almost certainly be evil and/or crazy. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Ronald D. Moore after creating Admiral Pressman: "I am proud to say that I've written another insane Admiral. They must put something in the water at Federation Headquarters."

** Lanius's predecessor, Joshua Graham.Graham was renowned for his cruelty to the point that he was considered to make Lanius look tame in comparison. Even after becoming TheAtoner after his failed execution, Graham instead shifted gears to a KnightTemplar.

* {{Website/SFDebris}} rationalizes Captain Archer's blunders on ''Star Trek Enterprise'' as the paranoia of a Vulcan-hating conspiracy nut. Archer's dislike of Vulcans on his show was well-known, as it was Vulcans who denied his late father the privilege of seeing his revolutionary warp engine in action. But Chuck's parody literally wears tinfoil to protect his brain from mind-melds.

** However, he's [[NiceGuy personally personable]] to fellow marines who don't desert during war. During the TimeSkip, [[spoiler:he was nominated for the position of Fleet Admiral, alongside "Lazy Justice" Admiral [[AnIcePerson Aokiji]]. Morally opposed, their conflict eventually boiled down to a death match on Punk Hazard that lasted ''ten days'', which Aokiji ultimately lost, and which permanently turned the island into HailFirePeaks. However, Akainu, [[PetTheDog in a rare moment of sympathy]], spared Aokiji's life. The latter then formally resigned, because he didn't want to be under Akainu's command supporting a form of Justice he was that strongly opposed to.]]
