* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry occasionally put in this role, because thanks to the reveal that he's Thor's son, any number of bad guys want a piece of him, something that is met with his vocal displeasure. One day, he's going to be King of Asgard, with all of the [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking power and influence that implies]], and probably as much ChronicHeroSyndrome as ever. Pretty much all the bad guys want him now, while he's still in the PersonOfMassDestruction stage and able to be manipulated or even killed.

This also serves to expose the Black Guardian who had been masquerading as the White Guardian, because the Doctor knew that the White Guardian would never be willing to sacrifice Astra's life.]]
