* Sgt. Webster to Recon in ''Film/HeartbreakRidge''.

to:

* Sgt. Webster to Recon in ''Film/HeartbreakRidge''. Also a perfectly good example of TheNeidermeyer--was perfectly good as a supplies clerk but being given leadership went to his head and he tried to be a ByTheBookCop when following the book was totally worthless in a live combat scenario (his "elite" team was still stuck on the beach on the climactic battle while Highway's group made it all the way to the objective).

* Nog of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is a heroic example, being exceedingly enthusiastic about Starfleet customs.= There's an element of overcompensation in this, since the ProudMerchantRace Ferengi are often stereotyped as avaricious cowards.

** Majors Frank Burns and Margaret Houlihan were this as well (although Houlihan relaxed later in the series).

to:

** Majors Frank Burns and Margaret Houlihan were this as well (although Houlihan relaxed later in the series). Burns actually slipped ''out'' of this trope in the strictest sense of the term, as [[TyrantTakesTheHelm he was technically in command of the unit]] for an undisclosed amount of time. He is quickly dropped back in as soon as [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Colonel]] [[AFatherToHisMen Potter]] arrived.
