* {{Superman}} is at, or near, the forefront of nearly every major event in the [[TheDCU DCU]] since he began his career of heroics. If not just because of his incredible power, then for who he is as a symbol, and the sheer number of other heroes he's befriended and/or inspired through the years.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Demetrio, the RebelLeader, is the master at gathering characters, mostly via [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe kindness]], [[WarriorTherapist persuasiveness]], and [[YouWouldDoTheSameForMe generosity]]. Occasionally through [[DefeatMeansFriendship asskicking]] and a [[GrinOfAudacity winning smile]]. He even manages to gather the series' protagonists, one of whom is a prince, into his team rather than the other way around.

* ''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.
