* Inverted in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth'' as your character, the new kid [[UnfortunateNames Douchebag]], is in effect a {{Mook}} of either Cartman or Kyle. During the battle between Elves and Humans at the school, the leader of the enemy faction (you can choose who to ultimately side with) will come over the P.A. system and attempt to use this trope on you, trying to get you to turn to their side.

* In ''Film/IronMonkey'', the crooked Governor's chief of police, Chief Fox, starts growing disaffected with his work after seeing the Governor order an innocent boy imprisoned just to force his father, martial arts master Wong Kaye-Ying, to stay in town and battle the Iron Monkey. After Wong Kaye-Ying decides to ally with the Iron Monkey, the monstrously evil Imperial Minister orders Wong's son to be publicly tortured to draw both his father and the Iron Monkey into an immediate rescue attempt. At this, Chief Fox just plain flips out and tries to both single-handedly rescue the boy, and then kill his way through the Imperial Minister's [[TheDragon Dragon]] and accompanying mooks. Being just a mook, he obviously fails, but he most certainly did try.

In an episode of ''TransformersAnimated'', a villain with metal-melting acid powers coerced the Dinobots into doing his dirty work, then ordered them to his aid when he was incapacitated. When Prowl pointed out that he couldn't harm them in his current position, they swiftly turned on their former master.
