** 1st Lieutenant Hassan, a field commissioned officer, chose to go through OCS and become an officer "properly". As a former ranker without formal education, his prospects for promotion in a peacetime Army were non-existent, and not good even in war-time. Having gone through OCS and having prior combat command experience, he can pretty much write his own ticket.

** 1st Lieutenant Hassan, a field commissioned officer, chose to go through OCS and become an officer "properly". "properly", even though he would be demoted to 2nd Lieutenant after graduation (and that's assuming he passed). As a former ranker without formal education, his prospects for further promotion in a peacetime Army were non-existent, and not good even in war-time. Having gone through OCS and having prior combat command experience, he can pretty much write his own ticket.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', almost all of the ''Konoha 12'' ninja are promoted in between the TimeSkip. Naruto himself averts this, being now possibly '''the''' most powerful ninja in the village but having one of the lowest ranks.
** Gaara, however, takes this further by going from [[NewMeat Genin]] to the [[FourStarBadass Kazekage]], and his siblings and Neji become Jonin.

* Between seasons in ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', the characters go up ranks. The Forwards start out with Subaru and Teana as Privates Second Class and Erio and Caro as Privates Third Class, but by ''Audioplay/StrikerSSoundStageX'', Erio and Caro are Privates First Class, Subaru is a Corporal, and Teana is an Enforcer with equivalent rank to a Second Lieutenant. By [[MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce Force]], Subaru has been promoted again to Sergeant. In the same time period, Signum and Vita, Second Lieutenants, advance to Captain and First Lieutenant, respectively.

* In the Soviet campaign in ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert'', the player NonEntityGeneral starts out as a Lieutenant and gets promoted all the way up to General [[spoiler: with Kane making him Chairman after Stalin is assassinated]]. Kukov starts out as a Captain and is later promoted to General also. Averted in the Allied campaign, where the player character is a Commander for the duration of the war.
** In a similar vein, the Soviet player in ''Red Alert 3'' goes from Commander to General [[spoiler: to Premier]] thanks to [[KlingonPromotion vacancies in the rank structure]].

* ''Film/PoliceAcademy''. Most of the main characters start off as cadets and graduate to officer for the second film. Any of the cadets from the original film still left are sergeants by the third film, justified by the fact that they are now instructors at the academy. Harris starts as a Lieutenant and becomes a captain upon his return in the fourth. Mauser is a Lieutenant in the second film, is promoted to captain midway through and is commandant of the rival academy in 3, while his BumblingSidekick, Proctor starts as a sergeant and is promoted to Mauser's Lieutenant vacancy when Mauser becomes a captain. Callahan starts as a sergeant and is promoted offscreen twice between films and Hightower is promoted to Lieutenant in the sixth film. The only recurring characters that don't see promotion are Commandant Lassard and Chief Hurst, though to be fair, there's nowhere for Hurst to be promoted to.
