* Happens to all Knights Radiant in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' as they keep on saying the Oaths:
** Kaladin hops from the First Oath to the Second in ''Literature/TheWayOfKings'', and then to the Third in ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance''. The latter comes with a sweet MorphWeapon as a bonus.
** Shallan is already after her First Oath in the beginning of ''The Way of Kings'', and goes two Oaths up during the course of the book, then goes another Oath up by the end of ''Words of Radiance''.
** Dalinar goes from the First to the Second Oath in ''Words of Radiance''.
** Lift goes from the First Oath to the Second in ''Words of Radiance'', and then to Third in ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}''.

* Between ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Ashley is promoted from Gunnery Chief (somewhere between [[UsefulNotes/CommonRanks OR-7 and OR-9]]) to Lieutenant-Commander (OF-3), while Kaidan Alenko goes from Staff Lieutenant (OF-2) to Major (counter-intuitively, OF-5), technically outranking his CO, [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]], who remains at OF-4 throughout the trilogy. Captain Anderson becomes an Admiral by the third game [[spoiler: and commander of all Alliance forces remaining on Reaper-occupied Earth]], and while Admiral Hackett remained an Admiral, he went from commanding the Fifth Fleet to commanding all Alliance Forces by the third game, and eventually became the ''de facto'' leader of the Systems Alliance, as well as the commander of the combined military might of [[spoiler: most of the Galaxy]] by the end.
** The in-game codex lists Lieutenant Commander (OF-3) and Staff Commander (OF-4), both would be addressed as commander. If Shepard was Lieutenant Commander in the first game it is possible a promotion was given shortly before the second game's tutorial stage. But really everyone does what you say because you're [[LivingLegend Shepard]] and are very possibly the only thing standing between civlisation and oblivion.

end. If you have the Spacer background, Shepard's mother Hannah is mentioned serving as an executive officer aboard another ship, then finally getting fast-tracked to Rear Admiral during ''3'' after turning down promotions during ''2''.
** The in-game codex lists Lieutenant Commander (OF-3) Between [[spoiler:his/her death from the Collector attack]] and Staff Commander (OF-4), both would be addressed as commander. If the work with Cerberus and events of "Arrival" during ''Mass Effect 2'', there really just wasn't any time to put Shepard was Lieutenant Commander in through any proper promotions, and with the first game it is possible character's Spectre status, it's possibly a promotion was given shortly before the second game's tutorial stage.moot point anyway.

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 ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Subaru has been promoted again to Sergeant. In the same time period, Signum and Vita, Second Lieutenants, advance to Captain and First Lieutenant, respectively.

Averted with Nanoha, who was offered multiple promotions at the end of ''[=StrikerS=]'', but turned them all down.

* ''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.
