** There's also the fact that Darkseid has ''lieutenants'' like Granny Goodness, Desaad, Kalibak and the like. As long as ''they're'' not publically abandoning him, attemping to boot him out or leave him to die is probably a bad idea ... and most of them will stick by him through rough patches either because they actually do think he's a good leader or because they realize just how bad their lives could get if one of the OTHERS took over. Desaad ''has'' turned on Darkseid in the past on occasion, when he thought Darkseid was truly beaten and he could take over. It never ends well for him. He's fortunate that Darkseid considers the attempts pathetic enough to be amusing.

When the trick is revealed in chapter 30, the Kiyo brothers even rub in their faces that it was easy to pull off because both Mizore and Kurumu were so ready to believe the worst in the other's respective boyfriends; the girls are [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone both devastated by the realization]].

* ''SaintSeiya'': This was used as a humanizing move in the Hades arc. It's revealed that the [[{{Mooks}} Spectres]] in Hades' believe he is trying to bring about a UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans for all humanity... the "[[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Great Eclipse]]" being the means. Of course, Hades just has a vague and nebulous all consuming contempt towards humanity and the living, and wants all existence to be in an orderly dead state.

* In the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'', as often as the heroes outmatch Team Rocket, you can almost always expect them to fall hook, line and sinker for a booby trap or PaperThinDisguise beforehand. Played with for Meowth's HeelFaceMole stunts, since the heroes have become increasingly suspicious and prone to LampshadeHanging as they've continued. Even then though, they usually ''still'' work eventually.

* The citizens of Latveria are usually portrayed as genuinely fond of Doctor Doom, and willing to stand up for him against the likes of CaptainAmerica or the ComicBook/FantasticFour. With good reason, he's responsible for freeing them from an unpopular dictator and subverting ReedRichardsIsUseless by making Latveria one of the most prosperous countries in... [[{{Ruritania}} Europe]]? All he asks for is the unconditional loyalty of his citizens. Some citizens are aware they will be killed horribly if they screw around, DependingOnTheWriter.

In the ''{{Discworld}}'', Sam Vimes reflects that the problem with democracy, the ''big'' problem, is that every citizen of Ankh-Morpork would get a vote. Even Nobby Nobbs. And Nobby's vote would have the same value as Sam's. Sam saw the flaw in democracy straight away.
