* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Fudge is definitely there by the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix fifth book]], though Hagrid's remarks about him in the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone first book]] suggest that he was never a particularly effective leader. Even before he [[TookALevelInJerkass takes his level in jerkass]], he is willing to send Hagrid to Azkaban on the mere suspicion of having opened the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]] just so that the Ministry appears to be taking action, and considering the nature of Azkaban, that's not a very nice thing to do.

* Richard De Longpre from ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'', a sexually depraved Manchild who prides himself on being the seemingly successful CEO of the corporation he inherited from his father; In fact, he is so dysfunctional on every level that his own board of directors assume most of the actual work in running the company, with Richard relegated to carrying a worthless title while maintaining the illusion that he's the one in charge. And that's to say nothing of his heir apparent, Allen Gregory...

** The Mages Guild seems to encourage this trope. Jeanne Frasoric, the head of the Bruma Mages Guild in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', is a ditzy, scatterbrained mage with [[SmallNameBigEgo delusions of self-importance]]. She is also almost totally inept at magic, and only got her position as branch head due to her [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections connections]], something she brags about constantly, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint oblivious as to what that actually says about her]]. None of her subordinates respect her, and several pass the time pulling pranks on her.

** The Mages Guild seems to encourage this trope. Unfortunately, in line with ThePeterPrinciple, being a skilled user of magic ''does not'' automatically translate into being a skilled administrator. The AbsentMindedProfessor nature of many skilled mages also does not help. Jeanne Frasoric, the head of the Bruma Mages Guild Hall in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', is a ditzy, scatterbrained mage with [[SmallNameBigEgo delusions of self-importance]]. She is also almost totally inept at magic, and only got her position as branch head due to her [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections connections]], something she brags about constantly, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint oblivious as to what that actually says about her]]. None of her subordinates respect her, and several pass the time pulling pranks on her. She's hardly the only Guild Hall leader in Cyrodiil in this regard, either.

* Many of the Network Supervisors of the ''BastardOperatorFromHell'' series certainly are this, but it's semi-justifiable in that a position with such a high turnover rate probably doesn't particularly attract the employment agencies.

*** Doofenshmirtz himself proves to be this for Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated (both [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter his daughter]] and his MinionWithAnFInEvil proved to be more competent than him).

* Major Monogram from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' drifts into this sometime. While most cases Doofenshmirtz is usually doing something to warrant sending Perry to stop him. There are a few instances where Doofenshmirtz is usually taking an off day such as going on a blind date, meeting an old teacher, going to a convention, ''actually being sick'', etc., but Monogram doesn't really bother to look into these case and send Perry to "stop him" anyway.\\\

** Then again, even in those occasions, Doofenshmirtz was doing something that should be stopped. In the blind date, Doof had developed a device to deprive people of their emotions if his date failed; to impress the "old teacher", he tried to blow up the moon; the convention was for evil scientists so, there was a reason to think someone (even if it wasn't Doofenshmirtz) would do something Perry should stop; when he got run over by an ice cream truck, he tried to hit the truck with a giant tire. Even when Major Monogram sent Perry to Doofenshmirtz because Doof was picking up empty bottles for recycling, it turned out it was for some plot ("It's green ''and'' evil! I call it 'greevil'!").
** On top of that, it's sometimes implied that Perry is OWCA's best agent, while Doofenshmirtz is their least serious threat.
