[[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.
