* Kaladin Stormblessed from ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. When he was injured and likely to die, Gaz tried to assign his crew a new bridgeleader. His men just started calling Kaladin Captain instead. Later he got that title officially, [[spoiler: when he became the head of Highprince Dalanars bodyguards.]]

* In ''CompanyOfHeroes'', the British Troops refer to you as "The Captain". There is also a unit called "Captain" which must be built unlock the M3 Stuart Light Tank and the Next Tier, however he is not a HeroUnit (he's actually pretty weak) and does not represent the player in any way.

* Bruno J. Global in ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' (Henry Gloval in ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''). With his calm demeanor (and, in America, his Russian accent) he kept the Macross together and got them home. Humorously, his animation design is later used for Captain Nemo in ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater''.

* In ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', much like in the movies and series, you will be "The Captain" of a ship. Although you start out as Ensign in the Tutorial Missions, then you get promoted to Lieutenant and get your own Ship, because Starfleet lacks Captains for all the ships with so many threats around them, later you rank up to eventually become Captain in rank too. But only for short as you will be soon Rear Admiral or with "Season 2" up to Vice Admiral, but still be in control of a ship (because of the beforementioned lack of Captains).

Added DiffLines:

** The situation is much the same for Klingon and Romulan characters, although in the Romulan case there isn't actually any ''rank'' called captain (Romulans refer to the analogous rank as [[CommandingCoolness Commander]] instead).
