* ''Film/OnlyOldMenAreGoingToBattle'' is about a Soviet fighter plane squadron engaging in regular combat against the Germans during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The film opens with the captain greeting flight school newbies "Darkie" Shchedronov, "Romeo" Sagdullayev, and "Grasshopper" Aleksandrov, and holding them out of a battle due to their inexperience. Towards the end of the film, with Darkie having already been killed in combat, Romeo and Grasshopper, now grizzled veterans, greet a new group of flight school graduates.

* In the [[TruthInTelevision ultra-realistic]] WWII drama ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', some replacements survive and become integrated into the unit... [[RedShirt others don't]]. The veterans either take take under their wings and try to teach them as much as possible to prep them for battle(Guarnere and Bull) or are bitterly hostile towards them (Cobb and Perconte); depending on green recruits tends to get you killed. There's also the fear of getting to know them that comes out as hate:

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Skye spends most of the first season as a civilian consultant, but Coulson makes no attempt to hide the fact that he's planning on inducting her into S.H.I.E.L.D. officially, even assigning veteran agent Grant Ward as her SO. Her naivete causes numerous personality conflicts, not to mention the time that Fitzsimmons decide that since they've never had an underling before, they should start pranking her. She officially becomes an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. in episode 16... one episode before [[spoiler:S.H.I.E.L.D. is officially (but temporarily) disbanded]], meaning that for the rest of the season she's literally the newest and lowest ranking agent in the entire organization.

* Timothy [=McGee=] in "{{NCIS}}". For the first couple of seasons, he is extremely inexperienced and prefers to hide behind his computer than to do field work. His teammates, particularly Tony, enjoy taunting him, often calling him "Probie" or other variations thereof. Within the course of a few seasons, however, he has matured greatly - after being promoted to Senior Field Agent [[spoiler: when Gibbs unexpectedly retires to Mexico]], he relishes in his new responsibility and earns the respect of his coworkers. * As with the ''BandOfBrothers'' example above, comes up in its SpiritualSuccessor ''ThePacific'' with Eugene Sledge and Bill Leyden. They learn ''really'' fast on [[WarIsHell Peleliu]]. Later during the Battle of Okinawa, Sledge and Leyden themselves are no less disparaging of two replacements in their unit. Their bullying eventually leads [[spoiler: [[NiceJobBreakingItHero one to have a nervous break that gets the other killed.]] Unfortunately, the replacement who died was actually beginning to fit in.]]

** A later episode had a veteran return to the unit after spending a fair bit of time in the hospital recovering from a wound. He missed the harrowing experience of the Battle of the Bulge and his shell shocked comrades cannot relate to him anymore. They start treating him like New Meat which makes him quite angry since he was a veteran of D-Day and Operation Market Garden. ** Another episode set near the end of the war has a New Meat soldier assigned guard duty alongside a veteran who chews him out for his over-eagerness for battle. To the veteran, an "easy" post with warm meals and a bed to sleep in every night is the best thing to ever happen to him throughout the whole war. Later, the same veteran does show comfort to the New Meat when they find [[spoiler: the concentration camps and the sights inside.]]

* ''GhostInTheShell''. Togusa is constantly referred to as "the rookie" by fellow Section 9 member Batou, though by Solid State Society he's shaken off the label and become the field commander of Section 9. However, it's his tendency to do things by the book and high aversion against excessive violence that [[HeWhoFightsMonsters makes him valuable to the team of former special forces cyborgs]].
