* ''Film/NoobLaCroiseeDesDestins'' inverts this in a "villainy equals job qualification" sense. In real life, Gaea is a StarvingStudent living off a scholarship that she's trying to strech as long as she can according to AllThereInTheManual. In the {{MMORPG}} that she's playing, she manages to put a whole in-game faction in debt to her via earning in-game currency as a [[ConMan Con Woman]] with a thing for {{Blackmail}}, saving it for years, spending it all in creating a shortage of basic materials in a time of high demand, and reselling it all at inflated prices. This impresses a minor character enough to offer to hire her into [[spoiler:a high-level job in notoriously corrupt bank]].

[[AC:Anime And Manga]]
* After the TimeSkip, most of the heroes of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' find themselves leading the new planetary government. This is examined in greater detail than in most series: While they're all extremely popular with the people at large, what with the whole liberating humanity thing, the majority have no interest in or aptitude for politics, and hand off the ''real'' responsibilities to people who actually know what they're doing.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* One of Literature/CiaphasCain's earlier adventures recounts that the men who were with him during the desperate defense of the local Arbites (police) station against invading genestealers were all promoted in the end. They were there in the first place because they'd become drunk and rowdy in the local bars and brothels; he was just there to get them out of custody. One Guardsman even notes that his new officer stripes just don't feel right, but Cain makes him a lot happier by remarking that a man of his discipline record won't keep them long.
