* [[MarySue Chaka]] of the ''WhateleyUniverse'' seems to have this. She pulled Fey and Lancer along in her wake when they first met, and then helped pull Team Kimba together. Since then, she's also pulled in more boyfriends and girlfriends than any fourteen-year-old could possibly handle.\\

* This is the primary ''modus operandi'' of WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse, as well as his mother before him: gathering the loyalty of down-and-out Gems. Jasper even calls him out on it directly when he tries to recruit ''her''.

* 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.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps'' - Snake can recruit any soldier he come across, including the BigBad, and his bosses.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' is similar, except with fewer hero units.
** One of the reason for such to happen is that he was willing to accept anyone, even those that was once his enemy; in fact, sometime before VideoGame/MetalGear2, he recruited Kyle, who was antagonistic in VideoGame/MetalGear.

** Shepard's ability to do this is seemingly a RunningGag in the third game, whereas most characters react with astonishment, only Wrex and Mordin's reaction to Shepard having a ''Prothean'' squadmate is essentially boiled down to, "It's ''Shepard''... what else is new?!"

** Arya Stark is another example, as her older sister describes her as someone who "will make friends with anyone" and she's adored by all the servants at her family's castle. Even when [[spoiler: goes on the run disguised as a peasant, she frequently acts as the leader even among older, more experienced children, and manages to gain the respect or friendship of a number of people including assassins, outlaws and Braavosi prostitutes.]]
