* King Bulblin from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' as quoted above is the TropeNamer, and a Type 1 example. He gives you a key that helps you progress through the final dungeon, and he stops [[RecurringBoss harassing you]].

* The Spriggan Twelve of ''Manga/FairyTail'' are twelve extremely powerful mages who serve Emperor Spriggan of the Albareth Empire as his PraetorianGuard. Prime Minister Yajeel's conversation with Markarov implies that the main reason they follow Spriggan is because even they pale in comparison to him.

* In his earliest appearances in ''{{Superman}}'' comics, Bibbo Bibbowski was like this - He broke his hand punching Superman, and from then on Superman was his "fav'rit" because he was tough. When he saw the Man of Steel getting beaten up by {{Lobo}}, his reaction was "Yer even tougher than Superman. Yer my ''new'' fav'rit". In later appearances he respected Superman for always doing the right thing.

* In ''Untold Tales of BlackestNight'', the Rainbow Raiders (a group carrying on the legacy of the original Rainbow Raider) attempted to side with the [[ZombieApocalypse Black Lantern Corps]]. However, they have no idea how becoming a Black Lantern actually works and end up killing themselves for nothing. * In ''FinalCrisis'', Kalibak's forces follow the strongest. So when Kalibak himself ends stomped by Tawky Tawny, he orders his warriors to gang on him. They refuse, as, well, his defeat has already kind of proven ''he'''s not the strongest.

* This is why [[spoiler:Zevran]] joins the party in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. In his own words, even if he managed to kill the hero through backstabbery, he might be killed by his masters on principle for failing the first time anyway. Basically, he enlists because it's his best chance to survive.

* Dragons in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' will only follow those who prove themselves to be the strongest. Odahviing, [[TheDragon the right-hand]] of [[BigBad Alduin]], aids the Dragonborn after the Dragonborn forces Alduin to run away at the Throat of the World and captures Odahviing himself. Odahviing explains that he is doing this because a) he wants to free himself and b) after Alduin fled like a DirtyCoward Odahviing and the other Dragons are no longer certain that he is worthy to lead them. After the Dragonborn defeats Alduin, Odahviing will swear his loyalty, allowing the Dragonborn to summon him with the "Call Dragon" shout.

* This happens fairly often in player vs player online gaming in general. However, due to most game's measures to enforce balanced teams, players typically opt to further widen the gap between team skill in [[RageQuit other less dignified manners]]. ** Some games takes measures against it, if the server in question has some kind of plugin that kick/ban the player who tries to do so. * In ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', several missions have you allied with a person who is allied with the Sith Empire [[TheQuisling just so he can become Prime Minister of the planet]]. If he becomes Prime Minister or not depends on how much a [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential dick you are]]. In addition, your Bounty Hunter character can express this as the reason for working with the Empire.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' gives us Sludge of the Dinobots: "Me Sludge follow strongest leader. Always." ** In the {{Transformers}} mythos, most Decepticons or Predacons serve only the [[AssKickingEqualsAuthority most powerful]] among the faction. Should a leader be deposed through either trickery or combat, the bulk of the army will quietly settle under the usurper's authority without much in the way of objection after the dust settles (though the process is rarely smooth if the usurper isn't up to snuff). As far as the 'Cons are concerned, you're only worthy of authority if you can hold onto it. If somebody else takes it, then they deserved it more than you. As you'd imagine, this policy tend to lead to a ''lot'' of [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder scheming]] among the [[TheStarscream higher ranks]]. * ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'': ** This is heavily implied to be the case for Killer Frost, when Gorilla Grodd attempted to stage a coup on ComicBook/LexLuthor, she was on his side but when it failed, then immediately switched allegiances and froze the other mutineers.
