* Spitfire from MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic acts [[DrillSergeantNasty the part]], but her tendency to allow her recruits to talk back to her in public, her encouragement of SociopathicSoldier behavior and somewhat loose loyalty to her squadmates reflects rather poorly on her as an officer. It's justified a little by [i]both[/i] the common reasons, her squad is both a special forces division and straddles the line of military/civilian, and she does get called on it.

\n* The fourth season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' mostly averts this, with higher ranking officers being recognized as such, but a lot of the interaction between Blackadder (a captain), George (a lieutenant) and Baldrick (a private) is very casual. Given that they spend most of their time squatting in a trench waiting for something to happen, being 100% professional all the time would be exhausting. Writer Creator/RichardCurtis stated that this was TruthInTelevision, mirroring the clash of classes that occurred in World War I as men from all walks of life found a binding equality in the trenches.

* Lieutenant Filicia Heideman of ''SoraNoWoto'' runs her tank platoon [[TeamMom as a family]] rather than as a military unit, though there are several practical reasons for not running the unit as a more strictly military organization.

* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': Military organization HERZ is more formal than its predecessor NERV but it's still somewhat lax: a mere Lieutenant like Kensuke isn't afraid of mocking Captain Asuka Ikari, even when they are on duty, and most of staff talks freely and informally.
