Debris Section's [[PointyHairedBoss manager and assistant manager]] moreso than the rest of the cast, as they only rarely go on actual jobs, and are much more aware of corporate politics than the rest of Debris Section.
** Only in the anime, though. Manga is much more [[CreatorProvincialism cosmopolitan]] and doesn't center on the corporate antics that closely.

* Episode 5 of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' is seen from the perspective of a salaryman and the two heroines (who the guy's son is a fan of) are almost an afterthought. It has a very different, more "realistic" style and is appropriately depressing.

* In both ''[[ShadowHearts Shadow Hearts: Covenant and Shadow Hearts: From the New World]]'', there's an one-use accessory called "Replacement Man". Described as "a meek corporate warrior, noticed by no one" and "a doll modeled after a guy who took the blame for his boss's screw-ups and lost his job", the Replacement Man will revive the character that equipped it in battle. After that, it disappears "with a sad smile of relief."
