* In general, if it's Jacuzzi Splot from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' has a Shonen manga (especially those in ''Magazine/ShonenJump''), natural ability to draw people towards him, unconsciously forming his own street gang largely off of this tendency. The LightNovels point out that this has less to do with any extraordinary amount of charisma so much as he gives people the hero will impression [[{{Moe}} that he'd be helpless on his own and is in constant need of coddling]].
-->He wasn't especially charismatic, but he had a strange way of gathering people about him or, to be more specific, it was like they gravitated to him. His appeal didn't spring from any sort of trustiness, but instead from the feeling that, if left to his own devices, he'd probably end up walking off a cliff somehow. He evoked a strange sort of protective instinct in people.
** Firo Prochainezo a [[BlackComedy darkly comedic]] version of this. For whatever reason, Firo is able to win the trust, admiration, and respect of people with little to no effort on his part. The only problem is that this ability seems to apply exclusively to complete nutbars and dangerous lunatics that he'd rather stay very far away from, and any attempt to dissuade them only seems to encourage them.
-->'''Christopher:''' That's so mean, Firo. I just wanted to be helpful to the first friend I made here in this city - you!
-->'''Firo:''' ...I can't trust you. Frankly, you're the type that'd just march into the casino and shoot the place to hell.
-->'''Christopher:''' Wow! That's amazing, Firo! You know me so well! I ''knew'' we were friends!
* Tatara(Sarasa) in ''Manga/{{Basara}}''; some other charaters may also counts: Shuri, Raizo, etc.
* The PowerTrio that was Guts, Griffith, and Casca from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' were this and still are even after their fellowship was tragically (and horrifically) split apart. When they aren't attracting their share of enemies ([[WeirdnessMagnet in several]] [[DoomMagnet different]] [[AllMenAreRapists ways]]), all three
have amassed rather devoted followings due to their stature, conquests, and overall heroism and bravery [[spoiler: though its misled in the [[DarkMessiah case of Griffith]]]]. Guts is revered due to his [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower raw strength]] and [[TheDeterminator sheer determination]] to overcome his obstacles; Griffith is exalted because of his [[TheChessmaster military prowess]] and natural charisma as a leader; and Casca is adored because of her [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask capability of commanding an army of men]] but also for retaining [[LadyOfWar her beauty and grace.]]
* Ichigo from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. Turning the Shinigami who was initially antagonistic to acceptance to willingly give him his power back.
* Sengoku from ''Manga/CageOfEden'' starts off as another goofy schoolboy, but begins to come into his own as he pulls more of the survivors into his group.
* Touma from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' even if they don't fight alongside him all the time, many people would rally to his cause, something that a magic cabal took note of and [[spoiler:tried to have someone use magic to pose as someone in the group to assassinate him and split it up]] even though there is no real group. Others he's beaten take new paths in life.
* Miria, the SupportingLeader of ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', has
this qualityquality: wherever she goes, other Claymores follow, often without exactly understanding why. Perhaps the best example is when [[spoiler:she rallies the entire current generation to rebel against the Organization--despite their standing order to kill her on sight]].
* Light from ''Manga/DeathNote'' is a Magnetic [[VillainProtagonist Villain]], His cult of personality is so strong that he gets three other people ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg four if we count]] [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Higuchi]]) to commit mass murder on his behalf. He gains Rem's loyalty as well even though she hates him ([[BlackAndGrayMorality because his motives are]] [[PureIsNotGood more pure than Higuchi's]]).



* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' - The eponymous hero has used most of the tactics above.
** Beat Them Up: Gaara, [[spoiler:Nagato]], Neji.
** Fight With Them: Sai, Sakura, Sasuke, Lee.
** Being kind to Inari (an orphan) in the Zabuza Arc [[note]]Although it should be noted that Naruto accomplished this with a QuitYourWhining speech[[/note]] indirectly wins him a whole village who believes in him.
** He saves Konoha and gets their respect and adoration.
** Telling his goals tends to overlap with beating them up, as both Gaara and [[spoiler:Nagato]] are persuaded after they hear his plans.
** After he defeat the summoned Jinchūriki with his own method, [[spoiler: Kurama (Kyubi) actually willingly cooperate with him completely]]
** Naruto's crowning achievement? [[spoiler:Winning over Obito.]]
** This has actually become so common that forum goers have given it the name 'Talk No Jutsu', 'Therapy No Jutsu', or 'Jesus No Jutsu'.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Luffy. It's even directly acknowledged by Mihawk, who considers it to be the single most dangerous trait Luffy posseses. Doflamingo expresses a similar sentiment later on.
-->'''Mihawk:''' It's not some kind of special power, but he has the ability to make allies of everyone he meets. And that is the most fearsome power on these high seas!
-->'''Doflamingo:''' I'm impressed that even under these circumstances you've managed to find yourself allies! I've respected that ability of yours since the War of the Best! Really, hats off!
** From time to time, ''Usopp'' shows that he's almost as good as Luffy at this. The Enies Lobby and Dressrosa arcs are the standout examples.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' - The eponymous hero has used most Sagara Sousuke from ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic!''. He ''actively'' tries to discourage people from becoming his friend, and is generally ''very'' [[MarriedToTheJob business-like]] and unfriendly, disliking chit chat. Yet somehow, he always manages to attract a bunch of people to him. And all of them ''really'' like him (many times, to the tactics above.

* Koichi in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' Part 4. Several characters praise Koichi's virtuousness
and Dressrosa arcs are the standout examples.state their pride at his friendship, including Josuke Higashikata, Rohan Kishibe and Jotaro Kujo. Others tentatively brought from deficit into moral equilibrium by his influence include Toshikazu Hazamada, Tamami Kobayashi, and Yukako Yamagishi; his eventual girlfriend.



* Ichigo from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. Turning the Shinigami who was initially antagonistic to acceptance to willingly give him his power back.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' and Kamina. A Type 4 except most of his group came because of his [[BadAss sheer power of awesome]]. Kittan and Simon each get a turn with the magnet.
* ''ShamanKing'': Virtually all of Yoh's team, especially Ren Tao.
* Yugi from ''Manga/YuGiOh''. Mostly it's #1, but #2 and #4 has also worked.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'''s Judai. Every single character he ever disputes with is converted, seemingly by the sheer force of his personality, either to a friend or a [[TrueCompanions hardcore devotee]] by the end of the episode/duel/season.
* Yusei from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', and even more naturally than Yugi. He grew up with Kiryu's TrueCompanions, formed one of his own that we meet at the start of the series, then quickly gets separated from them to form an entirely new one. We also see he recruits using all five methods.
* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' - Nanoha is apparently at her best accompanied by former foes she's thrashed to within an inch of their lives. Of course, she's very nice about it.

He starts out working pretty much on his own, but by this point he has a troop of around 15 or so primary allies (mostly various students) in addition to an absurd number of secondary characters. He has tried on many occasions to ditch his TrueCompanions but that just starts fights and he sees himself as the PapaWolf now since they keep hanging around.

* In ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', only a few of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 40+ characters]] join Serge because their own ambition drives them to seek the [[McGuffin Frozen Flame]] (and even then, they become subservient to him instantly.) The others join up simply for the reasons described above, or BecauseDestinySaysSo.
* The MC of ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' can become one, depending on dialogue choices and in some paths, end up recruiting more humans than the player can deploy in battle. A good example is Haru, who happens to be [[spoiler:suicidally depressed]], but nevertheless opens her heart up to the protagonist almost from the moment they meet.
** Same goes for the protagonist of the sequel, ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2''. [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Invest time in someone]] and most of them will follow you into hell itself, even if your alignments don't quite match up.
* Valvatorez of ''VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten'' has an extreme knack for bringing people to his side. Apart from drawing in Fuka, Emizel, Vulcanus, and Desco, he also manages to unconsciously amass an entire ''army'' willing to fight for him. For [[PurposelyOverpowered Tyrant Valvatorez]], it's taken to an even higher level - he can get a passive ability to turn any enemy he defeats into an ally for the rest of the battle.
* Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' seems to have an unerring ability to gravitate people towards them. Besides their regular companions, it's shown that Bodahn Feddic vowed complete UndyingLoyalty after Hawke rescued his adopted son, Sandal, in the Deep Roads, becoming their man-servant and official TeamDad of their estate, despite Hawke's [[HumbleHero protests]] [[ThinkNothingOfIt that it really wasn't necessary]]. Hawke's maid, Oriana, was a former slave that s/he rescued from an insane Tevinter Magister. She's naturally bewildered when Hawke informs her she's now free, [[BenevolentBoss proceeds to offer her a job]]... and more astoundingly, is actually going to ''pay'' her for her service.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Varric might tell the Inquisitor a story about Hawke, specifically how some moron in the Carta sent some people after Hawke to get him/her to pay for his/her uncle's debts, after Hawke became extremely wealthy. A [[TheCharmer Snarky!Hawke]] was waiting for them with cards and kept them busy until the guards showed up and arrested them. A number of them still liked Hawke so much that, after getting out, they became regulars at Hawke and Varric's weekly card games.
** The Grey Wardens of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' have far less clout in Fereldan then they enjoy in other countries, so they rely on this for their recruitment. Duncan and the player are two such examples. Arl Eamon also owes his political influence to being one.
* It's observed early on that the protagonist of ''VideoGame/ExitFate'' has a knack for this. After he defects to the opposing army, his superiors don't even bother assigning troops to him, since he's so good at finding new recruits. At the end of the game, your crew count will be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters somewhere between 40 and 75]].
* Cloud Strife in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.

It gets even harder to swallow when they find out that his memory of certain important events is wrong, and even when they discover that [[spoiler: he can be mind-controlled by the BigBad]] they ''still'' trust him! The most painful IdiotBall moment is how, despite Cloud's orders not to give the Black Materia to anyone, including himself, Barret or Red XIII (depending on who you pick to hold it) will give it back to the possessed Cloud as soon as he asks, out of his sheer charisma alone.



* Yuri from ''VideoGame/InfiniteSpace'' seems to have natural air of leadership that draws people to him... or have him to do dirty work for them.
* A DeconstructedTrope in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords''. The main character is (in)famous for creating bonds like this subconsciously by using the Force, sometimes creating bonds strong enough for a {{Synchronization}}. Further deconstructed when it's revealed that [[spoiler:you're regaining your connection to the Force by basically pulling the Force into yourself through said bonds.]]
** This trope is played straight in the original ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. But there is some mild deconstruction and AscendedFridgeHorror involved;[[spoiler: your character is ''Darth Revan'', whose legendary charisma and skills all but destroyed the Jedi Order and the Republic by dragging half the Jedi Order and a third of the Republic military with you when you made a FaceHeelTurn. ]]
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' - Link is made of this trope. All sentient characters except Ganondorf are required to help him in some way.



* The hero in ''{{Suikoden}}'' gathers [[OneHundredAndEight 108]] people towards them BecauseDestinySaysSo. Well, that and if you [[GottaCatchThemAll play the game right.]]
* In ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', only a few of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 40+ characters]] join Serge because their own ambition drives them to seek the [[McGuffin Frozen Flame]] (and even then, they become subservient to him instantly.) The others join up simply for the reasons described above, or BecauseDestinySaysSo.



* ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura''. The protagonist has no problem whatsoever in recruiting people to cheerfully abandon their livelihoods and trudge along, carrying crateloads of gear into dangerous situations and swinging weapons at all manner of ungodly foes and beasts, and not even say anything when you're announcing your plans to go to the next "no-one-ever-came-back-alive" destination, such as the Vendigroth Wastes, Island of Despair, ultra-secret enclave of the dark elves, or the Void. (Those are NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast, people.) The protagonist will also usually inform the latest recruit that they're hunted by an ancient order of assassins who want them, and everyone associated with them, dead. This fails to deter anyone. I guess living in Dernholm must suck majorly if this is the preferred choice.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' - Link is made of this trope. All sentient characters except Ganondorf are required to help him in some way.
* Fei of ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' falls into this, since he recruits quite a large party of people from all over the world, including at least a couple who try to kill him at first.
* The MC of ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' can become one, depending on dialogue choices and in some paths, end up recruiting more humans than the player can deploy in battle. A good example is Haru, who happens to be [[spoiler:suicidally depressed]], but nevertheless opens her heart up to the protagonist almost from the moment they meet.
** Same goes for the protagonist of the sequel, ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2''. [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Invest time in someone]] and most of them will follow you into hell itself, even if your alignments don't quite match up.
* Yuri from ''VideoGame/InfiniteSpace'' seems to have natural air of leadership that draws people to him... or have him to do dirty work for them.
* Reimu and Marisa from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' are extreme examples of this trope - every game introduces about 8 new characters, and the series is a dozen games long, not even counting the {{Gaiden Game}}s leading to [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters roughly a hundred characters]] (117 named characters as of this writing), and DefeatMeansFriendship is practically ironbound law in Gensokyo, leading to them having massive numbers of SuperpowerLottery winners to call on for allies. Although only a fraction of these characters actually wind up fighting directly alongside the heroines in any of the regular games (doujin games like ''VideoGame/TouhouLabyrinth'' that have real party systems being an exception), and often are more [[TheRival friendly rivals]] in function, the sidestories like ''Silent Sinner In Blue'' feature essentially half of Gensokyo teaming up in a massive jumble to take on the Lunarians.
* The Grey Wardens of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' have far less clout in Fereldan then they enjoy in other countries, so they rely on this for their recruitment. Duncan and the player are two such examples. Arl Eamon also owes his political influence to being one.

* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]
in Gensokyo, leading to the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series, where he gets some pretty helpful allies, most of them having massive numbers of SuperpowerLottery winners [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch belonging to call on for allies. Although only a fraction of these characters actually wind up fighting directly alongside the heroines usually antagonistic race]].
* Also deconstructed
in any of the regular games (doujin games like ''VideoGame/TouhouLabyrinth'' that have real party systems being an exception), and often ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', which ''KOTOR II'' took many notes from. The Nameless One's allies are more [[TheRival friendly rivals]] in function, the sidestories like ''Silent Sinner In Blue'' feature essentially half drawn to his torment by torments of Gensokyo teaming up in a massive jumble to take on the Lunarians.
* The Grey Wardens of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' have far less clout in Fereldan then they enjoy in other countries, so they rely on this for
their recruitment. Duncan own. He literally is branded with the Rune of Torment, which draws tormented souls to him. [[spoiler:Furthermore, with the exception of Annah, Nordrom and the player Fall-From-Grace, their torments are two such examples. Arl Eamon also owes his political influence to being one.mostly ''your'' fault.]]



* The New Kid, from ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth'', has an uncanny ability to make friends on Facebook. [[spoiler:Gets PlayedForDrama / [[PlayedForLaughs Laughs]] when it's revealed that the government hunted him to exploit his ability, and that his family transferred to South park to escape from its agents]].



* Cloud Strife in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Despite the fact that he's a former soldier for [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Shinra]], not to mention a jerk, [[LaResistance AVALANCHE]] accepts his help and eventually admit him as their leader. It gets even harder to swallow when they find out that his memory of certain important events is wrong, and even when they discover that [[spoiler: he can be mind-controlled by the BigBad]] they ''still'' trust him! The most painful IdiotBall moment is how, despite Cloud's orders not to give the Black Materia to anyone, including himself, Barret or Red XIII (depending on who you pick to hold it) will give it back to the possessed Cloud as soon as he asks, out of his sheer charisma alone.
* It's observed early on that the protagonist of ''VideoGame/ExitFate'' has a knack for this. After he defects to the opposing army, his superiors don't even bother assigning troops to him, since he's so good at finding new recruits. At the end of the game, your crew count will be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters somewhere between 40 and 75]].
* In ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'', your hero does it with main characters, and you can also do it with neutral encounters, and occasionally you'll get an item called Love and Peace that lets you do this to enemies.
* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] in the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series, where he gets some pretty helpful allies, most of them [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch belonging to a usually antagonistic race]].
* Valvatorez of ''VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten'' has an extreme knack for bringing people to his side. Apart from drawing in Fuka, Emizel, Vulcanus, and Desco, he also manages to unconsciously amass an entire ''army'' willing to fight for him. For [[PurposelyOverpowered Tyrant Valvatorez]], it's taken to an even higher level - he can get a passive ability to turn any enemy he defeats into an ally for the rest of the battle.
* Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' seems to have an unerring ability to gravitate people towards them. Besides their regular companions, it's shown that Bodahn Feddic vowed complete UndyingLoyalty after Hawke rescued his adopted son, Sandal, in the Deep Roads, becoming their man-servant and official TeamDad of their estate, despite Hawke's [[HumbleHero protests]] [[ThinkNothingOfIt that it really wasn't necessary]]. Hawke's maid, Oriana, was a former slave that s/he rescued from an insane Tevinter Magister. She's naturally bewildered when Hawke informs her she's now free, [[BenevolentBoss proceeds to offer her a job]]... and more astoundingly, is actually going to ''pay'' her for her service.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Varric might tell the Inquisitor a story about Hawke, specifically how some moron in the Carta sent some people after Hawke to get him/her to pay for his/her uncle's debts, after Hawke became extremely wealthy. A [[TheCharmer Snarky!Hawke]] was waiting for them with cards and kept them busy until the guards showed up and arrested them. A number of them still liked Hawke so much that, after getting out, they became regulars at Hawke and Varric's weekly card games.
