* Though he arrived a few years after its official founding, Laurentia from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' remembers larger-than-life adventuring pioneer Lucien Moreau this way. In reality, he was a BrokenAce whose [[WellDoneSonGuy expectations]] damaged the lives of all of his children, but Laurentia loved its mythology and he was useful enough as a heroic founding figure for him to get ShroudedInMyth with his actual problems permanently swept under the rug.

* Romulus is said to be the founder of the city of Rome (he's said to be descended from Aeneas above; since he was RaisedByWolves, one wonders how the genealogists figured this out).
** The original myth claims that Romulus killed his brother Remus, but an alternate account is that Remus survived and went on to found the city of Reims in France. Fittingly, Reims was home to a tribe of the Belgae, who notoriously gave Rome a lot of trouble during their conquests.

A universal trope, spotted as often in [[RealLife reality]] as it is in fiction. OurFounder is a statue of the FounderOfTheKingdom... be they a brave pioneer who established a colony in the New World, a missionary traveling the land building communities for his faith, a conqueror on his way to fame and riches, or a big-shot mogul who struck Big Business and got a nice-size stone replica of himself for his efforts. These are often to be spotted at crossroads, communal plazas downtown, or at parks, with some nice benches with old ladies feeding pigeons on them.

* ''You're Stepping on my Cloak and Dagger'' by Roger Hall. In the final days of the O.S.S, America's spy agency during WW2, Hall keeps a picture of [[MilitaryMaverick Wild Bill Donovan]] behind his desk, with a sign attached saying OUR FOUNDER. Unfortunately Donovan is ''persona non grata'' now that the war is over, so the sign is replaced by one saying [[WantedPoster WANTED]]. When a member of the top brass sees the picture he walks out in a huff, Hall's office gets shut down the next day and he's returned to civilian life.
