* Lugo and Adams are both this to [[PlayerCharacter Walker]] in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'', to varying degrees as the game goes on and [[FromBadToWorse the worse things get]]. Adams [[spoiler:gets so bitter about the whole situation after Lugo's death that he says things like "Yeah, I'm taking my sweet time, deal with it!" or "You wanted him dead, you should've done it yourself!" when he disengages, and come the end of chapter 14, he completely stops obeying Walker and even shoves him off when he drops his weapon with the intention of being taken prisoner into Konrad's tower]].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', Sobek is loped into helping Heru and seems incredibly unhappy about the arrangement, to the point of aiding Anpu behind Heru's back. Even then, he clearly states that he doesn't like Anpu and is very sour about "having" to aid him.

* Amarant in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' joins Zidane's party after being defeated by him, but he is absolutely puzzled as to why Zidane wastes so much energy sticking with his friends when Amarant believes the strong works alone and how people could get things done if they just did it themselves instead of relying on others. At one point, he ditches the party after beating Zidane in a race to see who could reach a specific room in a castle first, but after falling into a trap, Zidane runs back to save him, causing Amarant to rethink his logic after seeing Zidane had gone out of their way to save him just because he needed help.

But if so, he will regard it as SenselessSacrifice. GrumpyBear that he is, he makes no bones about considering TheHero's {{plan}} futile, and may join only because [[PowerOfFriendship his friends are]], and anything else is also futile. Possibly even only because it's his only way to avoid DyingAlone. Often the oldest member of the group, and prone to SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids. (Though not often so gloomy as to be TheEeyore.) When it dawns on him that victory is possible, an attack of HopeIsScary is not uncommon.

* ''Fanfic/PeaceForgedInFire'': {{Discussed}}. Morgan is a more traditionalist Romulan than D'trel, a Unificationist, and tells Praetor Velal of the Romulan Star Empire that she thinks that Proconsul D'Tan of the Romulan Republic is a [[WideEyedIdealist "naive idealist"]] and says she doesn't agree with his politics. But she follows him because whatever his faults, he's sincerely trying to help, while the Empire was useless after [[Film/StarTrek Hobus]] and the [[StateSec Tal'Shiar]] ''caused'' it.
