* Both the headmistress and the head of Security at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the ''WhateleyUniverse''. The headmistress turns out to be one of the great superheroines of the 20th century, and the head of security turns out to be a highly trained ex-special Forces military expert. So maybe the people who hired these guys count too.

** Katara has become this, the prime example being that unlike the other White Lotus members, who would stop Korra from going to Republic City, she gave her her blessing to go there, remembering how she went on her journey in the original series. That, and she decides to let her son Tenzin train Korra in Airbending.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': In "Jack Remembers The Past", Jack recalls bullies picking on him and refusing to give him his ball. When he tells his father, his father is sympathetic, but he says he cannot interfere with the bullying because he did not want to abuse his power. In the end, he trusts his son to learn how to handle them...which he does.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has Captain Anderson, who always supports Shepard in his/her quest, even at the risk of his own reputation or career. Admiral Hackett is also one of these.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Wrex arguably becomes one, if he survives the events of the first game, as he is now the leader of Clan Urdnot, one of the most powerful krogan clans, with his goal being the eventual unity and reformation of all of the krogan clans. [[GoodIsNotSoft He's not soft, planning to drag them to this goal whether they like it or not,]] but he is fair and restrains himself as much as possible.

Captain Anderson, who Anderson always supports Shepard in his/her quest, even at the risk of his own reputation or career. In the sequels he gains even more power and always tries to act responsibly. Come the third game and he's holding together the resistance on planet Earth and is regarded as a figure of hope second only to Shepard and co.

Admiral Hackett is also one of these.
these. He has to direct the Alliance's space forces against an ever increasingly crazy galaxy but holds it all together somehow.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has Captain Anderson (who might not really count since he only slightly outranks the main character, though in the sequel he is [[spoiler: either an admiral or the human Citadel Councilor, and, in either case, by far the biggest help you will get on that front]]), who always supports Shepard in his/her quest, even at the risk of his own reputation or career. Admiral Hackett is also one of these.

* Gideon Reeves of ''Series/{{APB}}'' qualifies. He actively encourages subordinates to question him and make him explain his reasoning so flaws can be found, and chooses Murphy as a primary advisor in large part ''because'' she's so up-front about telling him what she thinks he ''needs'' to hear, even if it's not what he'd ''like'' to hear.

* ''Series/IronFist2017'': Once he confirms Danny is who he's claiming and not delusional, Edmonds says he'll release him. However, Danny makes him think he's got other delusions talking about being in Kun'Lun, which he says is a part of Heaven and only appears periodically.

* After years and years of the WWF being run by LawfulEvil heels like VinceMcMahon and TripleH who screwed the faces at any chance, a bit of fresh air surfaced when MickFoley became Commissioner in 2000 and actually treated everybody equally. It was a nice if brief change of pace to watch a heel like Triple H finally get his just deserts at the hands of the man he forcefully retired no less. Besides Triple H, Foley's actions would frequently anger Wrestling/{{Edge}}, Wrestling/{{Christian}}, and Wrestling/KurtAngle. Wrestling/ChrisBenoit got it the worst when two of his world title victories were overturned by Foley due to the referees making bad calls. Still, Mick's reasonableness didn't save him from getting booed when backed into a corner by StoneColdSteveAustin.

* ''Fanfic/CyclesUponCycles'': [[Franchise/MassEffect Primarch Fedorian]] is this when [[Franchise/StarCraft Kerrigan]] announces her plans to [[spoiler: absorb the Krogan into the Zerg and remove the genophage]]. While Matriarch Benezia is condescending about the whole thing and Dalatrass Lintron spends the whole meeting panicking, Fedorian is upset but realizes that the Koprulu Alliance has always kept their word, so they can be trusted here.

[[spoiler:Though the Federation has assigned him to be an ObstructiveBureaucrat and prevent Samus from discovering their secret projects on the BSL station, he turns against them and aids Samus when it becomes clear how much of a threat the X parasites are.]]

# Of course, sometimes the threat is so [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt overwhelmingly catastrophic]] that even his help merely upgrades the heroes' situation from "completely hopeless" to "fighting chance."
