Several people who met Hitler said he was magnetic. Of course, really, you should wonder about the testimony of someone who was granted an audience with Hitler. One of the chief appeals of Nazism was to give people a way to try to live fantasy in RealLife . That was one of the main points of the torchlight parades and the hocus-pocus. Thus if one is to convince factory workers that they were ProudWarriorRace guys, they need to have a MagneticHero just like the ones in poems did. If Hitler didn't foot the bill, the Ministry of Propaganda could easily enough pretend he did.

* ''VideoGame/Undertale'': The[[PacifistRun (non-genocide) ]]player character, ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'': The player character becomes this when playing [[PacifistRun Pacifist or mostly-Pacifist]], despite never (visibly) speaking to anyone.anyone. One of the game's core mechanics is the ability to spare and befriend literally every enemy in the game. [[spoiler: Yes, even [[BigBad Flowey,]] though that requires [[NewGamePlus a second playthrough.]]]]

* If you ask [[SemperFi any Marine]], General James "Mad Dog" Mattis seems to fit the bill, due to his combination of erudite oratory and ruthless honesty regarding the central theme that death has in the profession of arms. -->Alexander the Great would not be in the least bit perplexed by the enemy that we face right now in Iraq, and our leaders going into this fight do their troops a disservice by not studying — studying, vice just reading — the men who have gone before us. We have been fighting on this planet for 5,000 years and [[CulturedWarrior we should take advantage of their experience]]. ‘Winging it’ and [[WeHaveReserves filling body bags]] as we sort out what works [[TheChainsOfCommanding reminds us of the moral dictates and the cost of competence in our profession]].

* ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' provides a {{Deconstruction}} of this, by extending it to include Batman's [[CreateYourOwnVillain villains]]. One psychiatrist in-universe claims that Batman's mere force of presence forces weaker-willed people to act accordingly, hence his RoguesGallery of mentally-deranged individuals. [[spoiler: Given that The Joker comes out of a decade-long catatonia in response to Batman's return, [[JerkassHasAPoint Doctor Wolper might have been on to something.]]]]

* Haru slowly accumulates buddies in ''RaveMaster''. Elie by [[MeetCute the power of love]], Musica (more or less) by uniting him with his grandfather, Let with an impressive display of belief, Celia by pulling her out of a rock, Lazenby by showing him he was working for the villain, Shuda by motivating him to live (and also some stuff with his dad), Julia by his determination, Julius by... [[WhatAnIdiot *cough*]], and Belnika by being cute and friendly.

* {{Nightwing}} is a huge one too, to the point where some believe his superpower is charisma. When he showed up to a fight with multiple generations of Comicbook/TeenTitans, Superboy noted how everyone instantly followed his lead. He also once convinced every hero on Earth, without question, to jump into a parallel dimension (saving them all). Batman even said it's one of the reasons he's proudest of Dick--unlike Bats, he can gain and keep allies. So essentially he's "Batman with social skills."
