*** Mitsuru also provides a justification for how much power she has. The school was built and is still owned by her family, the Kijiro Group, which is one of the most powerful groups in Japan and they have a say in the inner workings of running it. The teachers are thus rightly terrified of angering or otherwise disregarding Mitsuru in anyway, since she really does have far more power than they do.

* Medaka from ''Manga/MedakaBox'' becomes this with an overwhelming 98% vote at the start of the series, setting up a suggestion box to be of service to the student body. [[spoiler:Next year, Zenkichi beats her, with only the remaining 2% having voted for her re-election.]]
* Kyoya Hibari from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. He actually runs the Disciplinary Board (think Safety Patrol or Prefects, only more mafia-like), the actual student council is not seen. Acts like a delinquent more than a President, and runs the Council as his own personal gang. Adelheid Suzuki of the Simon Famiglia also quite qualifies.
* Shizuru Fujino from ''Anime/MaiHime''. In the prequel novel "Natsuki no Prelude," it is implied that the main reason why she ran for President was to get Natsuki access to school records for her investigation.
* Manabi from ''Manga/ManabiStraight'', who is nothing at all like the others on this list. Partly because she is a NewTransferStudent when elected as President. But she makes friends with Takako Kakuzawa, who is a more typical Student Council President at another high school.
* Milly Ashford from ''Anime/CodeGeass''... not the first to attempt making the World's Largest Pizza, but probably the first to [[MundaneUtility attempt it using an]] [[HumongousMecha outdated mecha prototype]].

* From ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' there's Ashley Kerwin, Liberty Van Zandt, Holly J. Sinclair and Sav Bhandari, in that order. In the beginning of the series the popular but serious Ashley was going to run unopposed but her step brother got his class-clown friend to run against her. The spoiled Holly J was unopposed for her first three years of HighSchool but faced, and lost a stiff election in senior year to Sav.
* Paris Gellar (former socially-awkward AlphaBitch, still awkward) served in this capacity during the third season of ''Series/GilmoreGirls''. She was only able to get elected by having Rory as her VP to soften her image (people respected Paris' abilities and focus, but were terrified/put-off by her personality so she needed a softer, friendlier running mate who would have her back). Turned into major drama when the Senior-class Rep (a previously unseen AlphaBitch at the school) felt she was getting snubbed in meetings (her not-so-great ideas were just being dismissed right away by Paris) and went all Machiavelli using Paris' social insecurities. Eventually, she helped push Paris back into full-on AlphaBitch mode against Rory for a while, but never really seemed to get anything out of it for herself.
* ''Series/MrStudentBodyPresident'' centers around this trope. Tyler Prendergast is the, well, [[ShapedLikeItself Student Body President]] of Berenger High School. Despite being the protagonist, he has no qualms about threatening and cajoling to get what he wants, even blackmailing the Principal. Fitting for a HighSchool spoof of the GovernmentProcedural.
* Martin Qwerly from ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide''. Technically, he was VP and the [[WeaselMascot weasel]] [[CaligulasHorse was president]]. Also, he only ever did one important thing.
* [[{{Telekinesis}} Daphnie]] [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Powell]] from ''Series/NoOrdinaryFamily''.

* From ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' there's Ashley Kerwin, Liberty Van Zandt, Holly J. Sinclair and Sav Bhandari, in that order. In the beginning of the series the popular but serious Ashley was going to run unopposed but her step brother got his class-clown friend to run against her. The spoiled Holly J was unopposed for her first three years of HighSchool but faced, and lost a stiff election in senior year to Sav.
* Paris Gellar (former socially-awkward AlphaBitch, still awkward) served in this capacity during the third season of ''Series/GilmoreGirls''. She was only able to get elected by having Rory as her VP to soften her image (people respected Paris' abilities and focus, but were terrified/put-off by her personality so she needed a softer, friendlier running mate who would have her back). Turned into major drama when the Senior-class Rep (a previously unseen AlphaBitch at the school) felt she was getting snubbed in meetings (her not-so-great ideas were just being dismissed right away by Paris) and went all Machiavelli using Paris' social insecurities.

* Sasara is one in ''{{VideoGame/Aquapazza}}''. Amusingly, she's the only schoolgirl not in uniform; she's cosplaying as a valkyrie.
* Elsa, the main character of ''VideoGame/BlackCloset''. In which being student council president is more or less like being head of the secret police.



* Towa Herschel is this ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' and its sequel and, as this, she takes on a massive amount of duties. Fortunately, the appearance of the game's main protagonist, Rean Schwarzer, on the scene provides her with at least some relief, as he's often called upon to help out the student council, encouraged by Instructor Sara. Though at least some of this is guided by whether or not the player chooses to do any of this stuff, which is often of the FetchQuest variety.
* This is Luna Platz's aim in ''MegamanStarForce 3''.

Added DiffLines:

*** Mitsuru also provides a justification for how much power she has. The school was built and is still owned by her family, the Kojiro Group, which is one of the most powerful groups in Japan and they have a say in the inner workings of running it. The teachers are thus rightly terrified of angering or otherwise disregarding Mitsuru in anyway, since she really does have far more power than they do.

* In John Powers' book "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?", the last thing any student wants is to be elected President of the Student Council. Only the most disliked students (the "fat and ugly kids") get nominated or voted into student offices; "winning" the presidential election means that student is THE most unpopular one in the school.
