* Bob Belcher from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' is the OnlySaneMan to his family (and the rest of the cast) so by extension, he's this trope to the titular family business as well.

IUEO trope
* In more recent years, Creator/KeijiInafune seemed to serve this role for Creator/{{Capcom}}, being quite possibly the only employee there who both wanted to do something other than turning CapcomSequelStagnation UpToEleven and had the ability and clout to do so. (In fact, ''VideoGame/LostPlanet'' and ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' were facing cancellation more or less for not being a sequel, so Inafune intentionally made their "demos" go way over budget for the sole purpose of being able to say [[SunkCostFallacy "we've poured all this money into it, why cancel it now?"]]) Then he resigned from Capcom because he didn't want to spend the rest of his career making half-baked sequels. In no time flat, Capcom made a series of questionable decisions, each of which managed to annoy fans more than the last, culminating in a massive InternetCounterattack in response to the cancellation of ''VideoGame/MegamanLegends 3''.

* In ''Film/JurassicPark'', [[TheHunter Robert Muldoon]] isn't arrogant like Wu or idealistic like Hammond; he's all too aware of the dangers of Jurassic Park and the raptors in particular. He knows they could likely never be displayed as park animals and should all be destroyed. Hammond dismisses him as an alarmist, but a lot of deaths could have been avoided if his warnings had been heeded. ** The same applies in ''JurassicWorld'' to ''Velociraptor'' trainers Owen Grady and Barry. While park manager Claire views the dinosaurs as assets and Hoskins wants to use the raptors and ''I. rex'' as field weapons, these two continually argue that they're living, breathing animals that have personalities and instincts, sometimes very dangerous and unpredictable ones. [[AesopAmnesia Yet again,]] a lot of death and destruction could have been prevented if the higher-ups had listened to Owen's and other trainers' warnings.

On second thought, this might be better served in Hypercompetent Sidekick.
* Hibiki Kohaku of ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma'' plays this role in regards to [[{{Fratbro}} Kagura]] [[HandsomeLech Mutsuki]], usually carrying out multiple requests on his behalf whilst keeping him reined in, especially when the ladies are around. He and Kokonoe share a moment contemplating the stupidity of people they know in the ''Sector Seven'' story. In the event Makoto is around whilst Hibiki is indisposed, she takes over and throttles [[RagingStiffie Kagura's dragon]] into submission. Of course, it's not that she doesn't play this role either, especially when several other nutbars outrank her (especially her [[BadBoss former]] [[AxCrazy boss]]).

** In their defense they do have a point. [[spoiler:Immediately after being disbanded]] things go south for the Empire in a hurry. Darth Malgus rebels splitting the Empire in two, the Emperor gets killed and the Empire loses several key battles throughout the galaxy, among them Corellia. It gets so bad that Darth Marr has to send player on a suicide mission to Makeb to get Isotope-5 so the Empire gets a ''chance'' at survival. It's not only implied but extremely likely none of this would have been neccessary if Imperial Intelligence had been there to keep things in check. The mere fact that Darth Marr even knows about Makeb is simple dumb luck as Darth Marr informs Imperial Agent players that he only knew that Isotope-5 had been found on Makeb due to files he found in Keeper's office before Intelligence was liquidated.

** Also at Unseen University where this role is filled by Ponder Stibbons, the Archchancellor or the Librarian, depending on what job needs doing. Rincewind is also an example, as after his running days are over, he seems to accrue any title no-one else want. (At one point, it's shown that Ponder has taken on so much extra work - which the senior wizards were happy to pass off to him - that he actually the controlling stake in running the University.)
