*Sora from Kingdom Hearts. He is explicitly stated to have the power to connect with anyone. Unfortunately, the Big Bad realizes, as bonds and other such links between Hearts are very important in this series, that anyone includes him, and attempts to use this to possess Sora. It should be noted that the Big Bad can be rather charismatic (if he chooses not to simply beat your face in) in virtually every incarnation, and he has a lot of those.

* According to [[FortuneTeller Rose]] in (''Super'') ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series lead Ryu is an unintentional variant of trope and mixes this with TheChosenOne. [[TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne According]] [[BecauseDestinySaysSo to]] [[PsychicPowers Rose's]] [[TarotTroubles fortune]] [[CrystalBall telling]], Ryu is designated as [[TarotMotifs The Fool]], the only one who can possibly hope to defeat [[BigBad Bison]], but ''only'' when "the stars align to herald his coming." Rose would attempt to do the deed herself (and in fact, has tried at least ''three'' times beforehand), [[LateArrivalSpoiler but seeing as]] [[EnemyWithout she's the good half of Bison's soul]], [[NoSell her Soul Power and his Psycho Power simply stamp each other out at best]], so she can only hope to stall Bison as she [[TheObiWan lends her power to Ryu's quest]] (and [[FightingYourFriend sometimes prevents him from preemptively facing Bison]]). Addition, Rose notes that ''anyone'' who's crossed paths with Ryu (which is practically ''everyone'', ranging from the likes of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li and Guile]] to [[VideoGame/FinalFight Guy]] to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Sakura]]) will have their life's path altered accordingly; Ryu's [[HeterosexualLifePartners best]] [[TheLancer friend]] Ken will apparently play a role in the final battle and Sagat's destiny was ultimately changed when he met Ryu back [[VideoGame/StreetFighterI in the first World Warrior tournament]]. In a sense, Ryu's a BlackHoleSue minus the MarySue qualities.

* ''Film/XMen'': Professor X is exceptionally charismatic because he's gifted with the uncanny skill to influence people (without the use of his psychic ability) who hardly know him to risk their lives for him and/or uphold his philosophy against his enemies. In the time span of no more than a year (with some breaks, as Logan was digging around for his past at [[Film/X2XMenUnited Alkali Lake]], and later was "[[Film/XMenTheLastStand passing through]]"), Wolverine goes from mocking the Professor's paraplegia ("[[Film/XMen What do they call you, Wheels?]]") to being "[[Film/XMenTheLastStand tamed]]" by him. In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Charles is a very attentive and earnest coach who is able to shape the adolescent RagtagBunchOfMisfits that he has recruited into an effective paramilitary group within a short period of time, and his new team is strong enough to withstand the more experienced Hellfire Club. In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', Cyclops, Quicksilver and Nightcrawler endanger themselves to rescue Xavier, whom they had only met once (or in the case of Kurt Wagner, he didn't even get the chance to talk to the Professor before the latter was captured), and they all elect to become full-fledged members of the X-Men.
