* 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.

* The ''DragonBall'' series uses this with TheAtoner to have a BadassCrew full of reformed bad guys. Oolong, Yamcha, Puar, Tien, Chaozu, Piccolo, and Vegeta started out as Goku's opponents, though not all of them turned face immediately after [[DefeatMeansFriendship being defeated by Goku]].

* ''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.

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.



** From time to time, ''Usopp'' shows that he's almost as good as Luffy at this. The Eneis Lobby and Dressrosa arcs are the standout examples.
** luffy is also notable for almost never using the methods listed above, istead he uses his charisma without even knowing it.
*** the one that is most used is saving means friendship, luffy did beat up some of his future allies but the beat down was not the reason for joining his crew/ allying with him

* ''Literature/{{Schooled}}'':Cap averts this, with his odd appearance making him the butt of every joke. [[spoiler: Once he saves the bus driver with a stunt, suddenly everybody starts making tie dye shirts and practicing Tai Chi]].

* CaptainAmerica is so well-respected by the superhero community that they usually follow his lead whether he's their official leader or not. This is because he's both [[BadassNormal incredibly competent despite not having superpowers]] and because they trust him to [[TheCape always be true to the right ideals]]. It comes to a point that when he fails them, the whole community gets demoralized (ex. in ComicBook/CivilWar.)

Rory: Rory provides another deconsturuction when he calls out the Doctor for this: "It's not that you make people take risks, it's that you make them want to impress you. You make it so they don't want to let you down. You have no idea how dangerous you make people to themselves!" themselves!"
*** Ironically enough, he goes over to help Amy save the Doctor and stays by his side. The Doctor himself jabs Rory for this.

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.
