* An offscreen example from ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'': the family all know that their distant superior, The Big Giant Head, only got his position "by kissing The Big Giant Butt."

* Simmons from ''RedVsBlue'', commonly referred to by Grif as a "kiss-ass". And not just Grif: pretty much anyone who's ever met Simmons is aware of his sycophancy. On one occasion, Sarge decided to forego commanding them to do something useful and just commanded them to do what they were going to do anyway (except for Grif, who made sarcastic remarks instead). Simmons' order was "kiss ass at will," which he did, with gusto.

* In Literature/TheTomeOfBill, most vampires tend to be this. ''Sunset Strip'' actually explains this: true leaders are extremely rare, and they tend to want to lead, not follow. An entire society based around the best and the brightest would quickly devolve into civil war as they all vie for dominance, so it's the weak-minded by physically capable people that get turned more often than not.

*** This is a paraphrasing of Rule of Acquisition #33: "It never hurts to suck up to the boss." Since the Ferengi treat the Rules as their version of TheBible, it can be said that this trope is part of their religion.

** Skinner tries to be this to Superintendent Chalmers oh ''so'' hard, but being a high-quality buzz-kill, ''way'' too eager to please (to the point that in trying to please Chalmers he instead ruins things ''hard'') and with his school being such a hell-hole (and DependingOnTheWriter, Chalmers being in favor or against this), Chalmers utterly ''hates'' Skinner's guts (to the point that Chalmers' CatchPhase is him yelling Skinner's name (and on latter seasons, he just ''cannot'' say Skinner's name (or anything that vaguely sounds like "Skinner") in any other way!)).

** Chief Wiggum has been known to act like this towards Mayor Quimby (who called him a "glorified crossing guard" in one episode). For example, if Quimby is too afraid of Fat Tony to act on him, Wiggum and the other police leave Tony alone, but if Quimby changes his mind, so does Wiggum. (As seen in "Mayored to the Mob".) Wiggum acts this way towards Mr. Burns sometimes too, in one episode ''complimenting'' him on his reckless driving.
