* Wrip the rabbit-spirit in ''WebAnimation/NoEvil'' is, in her own words, "only good at getting people to do things". However, she's ''really good'' at getting people to do things, especially when using her disguise magic. In ''Little Bunny Foo Foo'', she and Calamity are caught spying on the [=McCoy=] food thieves; it takes her two sentences to convince them that she's there to help, at which point she lures them into a trap.

* King Juan Carlos I of Spain. When Francisco Franco agreed to change Spain from a different kind of dictatorship to an absolute monarchy, he started trying to groom the "Prince of Spain", Juan Carlos of the Borbón House, into a good successor who'd maintain the authoritarian state. The prince went along with this, publicly supporting Franco, enduring harsh criticism from reformists and moderates all over… Until Franco fell gravely ill in 1975 and handed him absolute authority as King. Only a couple of days after Franco's death, Juan Carlos began to institute reforms at an incredible pace, turning Spain from western Europe's strictest dictatorship into a functional parliamentary democracy in less than three years. Heck, [[{{Cincinnatus}} he even refused to take power after the military executed a coup so he could be returned to full authority]], single-handedly saving a struggling democracy, and renounced almost all of the ancestral powers he once wielded.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Rodr%C3%ADguez_Erdoiza Manuel Rodriguez Erdoiza]], one of the main heroes of the Chilean Independence. While Jose Miguel Carrera was a HotBlooded TragicHero and Bernardo O'Higgins mixed HotBlooded with TheStrategist, Rodriguez was a mix of ManipulativeBastard and MasterOfDisguise who kept LaResistance alive through the hard years when Spaniards took the government back. Once, he dressed up as a beggar, wint to the carriage of the ''Spanish governor'' Marco del Pont, opened the door and cheerfully helped Marco del Pont to get off… and got away with it. Why did he do such a thing, which could've gotten him killed or imprisoned if his cover was blown? [[RefugeInAudacity Just because he could.]]

* In ''[[Literature/NobodysGirl Nobody's Girl]] (and its anime adaptation ''Anime/TheStoryOfPerrine''), the titular Perrine is an 13-year-old AllLovingHero at first, but must turn herself into this in the second part of the story. [[spoiler: As [[SecretIdentity "Aurelie"]], Perrine becomes the near-blind Vulfran Pandavoine's guide, interpreter and secretary. She realises that the increasingly old and weary old man is surrounded by ambitious and greedy {{smug snake}}s (like his nephews/potential heirs Casimir and Theodore, each young man's scheming mothers, and the executive Talouel), and must become this fast to fend these people off, protect Vulfran's interests, and avert becoming their pawn. And all the time, she must also hide her identity as none other than ''Vulfran's granddaughter'', since letting such a huge secret leak would put her in '''even more danger'''.]]

** Princess Caeda/Shiida from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem''. While her boyfriend and local MagneticHero Marth is able to recruit some allies to your side, it is Caeda who can influence the most amount of characters to join your side, simply by going up to them in battle and talking to them.

** [[PlayerCharacter YOU]] will become this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. Or better said, your character The Avatar - a mysterious young man or woman who belongs to the Tactician Class (able to [[MagicKnight use both magic tomes and swords]]). S/he becomes the advisor and best friend (and prospect love interest in the case of a girl!Avatar) of Prince Chrom of Ylisse, serving as his NumberTwo in his BadassCrew, the Shepherds. [[spoiler: And then it turns out that s/he is also the BigBadFriend, as the potential host for a Dark God. And his/her biggest goal is to go "ScrewDestiny" so this won't happen.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' gives us ''two'' of these. Prince Ephraim of Renais does this by being TheStrategist and making guerrilla tactics a complement of his [[BladeOnAStick spear-using skills]], whereas his rival (and possible brother-in-law) Prince Innes of Frelia is the archer and the lead of the Frelian spy network. OTOH, Ephraim's twin sister Princess Eirika aims to become a guile heroine, but she is more of a MessianicArchetype - using her kindness and charisma rather than deceit and tactics, alongside [[HeroesPreferSwords her swordmanship]].

** In ''XIII'', on top of being a ColonelBadass and ActionHero, Heidern gets to show that he can play the role of Guile Hero pretty well when it's needed. He gets his first try in KOF 99 and 2000, when he and the Ikari Warriors are tasked with investigating NESTS through the KOF tournament, and he does this again in XIII cia organizing and leading an Investigation Team (with Seth, Blue Mary, Ramon and Vanessa as its members), to check on the mysterious circumstances surrounding Those Of The Past -- and this is ''alongside'' always sending out the Ikari Warriors into the battlefield itself as well. [[spoiler: Too bad Ash is just as guile-ful and manages to perform his plan even ''with Heidern and Co. around''.]]

* Chilean novelist Alberto Blest Gana was pretty fond of this type of hero, and his two most famous leads are these: Martin from ''[[RoleCalled Martin Rivas]]'' and Carlos Diaz aka el "Nato" from "El Loco Estero". Both young men are kind-hearted, honest, and suffering of UnrequitedLove (for [[DefrostingIceQueen Leonor]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Deidamia]], respectively), but their deviousness and manipulation skills will help them go forth with their goals.

* Gavin Guile of ''Literature/TheLightbringerSeries'' is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin worthy of his name]], and his family are just as tricky (do not let [[TheDreaded his father]] even notice you exist). Bonus points for the name itself of course, but consider the level of BadassBoast in a family taking a name that warns their enemies "I'm going to trick you" and still pulling it off. For centuries.
