** 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.

* The 1WO in ''Film/DasBoot'' is fresh into the U-boat corps having come from a plantation in Mexico and knowing nothing about the [[WarIsHell horrors of the war]] or U-boat life. He is an ardent Nazi and a by-the-book officer and is the only one who even tries to maintain his appearance and cleanliness throughout the film, though even he winds up frayed around the edges by the end.

This is deconstructed later when it is revealed that he was in fact ReassignedtoAntarctica (or, actually worse, since no one was expected to come out of Iwo Jima alive) as a punishment for not being a sufficiently brutal Kenpei back in Japan.
