* Cornelius Fudge in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books and films. He ended up getting the sack after the true nature of the threat became apparent, lingering, like Chamberlain, as an advisor to his successor. It's possible that Fudge was intended to sit in for Chamberlain, who had a similar approach to the rise of Hitler until [[FromBadToWorse It got worse]].
