* In William King's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} SpaceWolf novel ''Grey Hunters'', Ragnor feels this strongly when he receives a FieldPromotion. Especially because one of his new subordinates was a man he had long hated and [[{{Revenge}} wanted to kill]]. He wonders whether, if this man died, he could tell whether he had done all he could or had secretly wanted him to die.

** Daniels is always struggling between the politics of the higher-ups, his own judgement, the pressure and CowboyCop antics from some of his more uncontrollable but competent detectives and the need to protect his more inept underlings.
** Druglord Stringer Bell often expresses his frustration with [[SurroundedByIdiots the lack of talent he has available]] and the hardships of ruling the organization like a proper business. He compares himself to a CEO who has to take responsibility for mishaps and scandals while everybody else can be ducking and hiding.
--->'''Lester:''' Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
** Present and discussed several times during Carcetti's term. As a previous white mayor puts it, governing the city means not seeing your family and eating shit from one community or another, day in and day out.

* ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982''. Lampshaded not only in King Osric's speech (see Quotes) but also the AndTheAdventureContinues bit in ''Film/ConanTheDestroyer'', where TheNarrator tells of how Conan will one day wear his own crown "on a troubled brow."

* In ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' (the recent rebooted continuity, that is) then-leader of the Legion Cosmic Boy, thinking he and Sun Boy are in private, decides to cut loose and rant about all the pressure he's under and how much the various idiosyncrasies of the other Legion members annoy him. To his horror, he discovers mere seconds later that [[IsThisThingStillOn the communications channel had been open the whole time]] and his entire screed was heard by every other member of the Legion. This ultimately leads to a dangerous schism within the Legion, and they only just manage to pull themselves back together in time to defeat the BigBad.

* Baron Wulfenbach from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' could easily compare his job to herding cats and is implied to be constantly exhausted from stopping various AxCrazy [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] from going out of control, but he's the only thing preventing Europa from collapsing into blood-soaked anarchy. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040114 Here]] and [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040806 here]]. He also punishes someone who has displeased him by putting him in charge of a city. Admittedly, it includes the threat of being sent to [[PunishmentDetail Castle Heterodyne]] at his very first slip-up. [[spoiler:Later, we catch up with him in Castle Heterodyne.]]
