** The quarians of the Migrant Fleet refer to Shepard as ''Captain'' Shepard, despite Shepard pointing out that s/he is only ever reached the rank of [[CommandingCoolness Commander]]. It's explained that because s/he commands a ship and is responsible for the lives of their crew, this is Shepard's legal status under quarian law, allowing them the authority to speak as an advocate for their crew in legal matters.

* Goodness knows how this page could get to 2010 without mention of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'s'' Captain Zapp Brannigan, not-at-all-erstwhile hero of the Democratic Order of Planets, and apparently its entire general staff. Definitely a subversion of the trope, and a gigantic send-up of the mythology around Captain James Kirk. Brannigan's portrayal was actually intended to be less Kirk specifically, and more what the real (and now rather doughy and loopy) WilliamShatner would be like as a starship captain. Turns out, not a very good one.

Added DiffLines:

* From a military standpoint, ''Series/{{MASH}}'''s captains, Hawkeye and Trapper may be two ranks below Lt. Colonel, but they'll show their authority when needed. In "Deluge," Hawkeye sees a soldier smoking beyond the doors of the O.R.:
-->'''Hawkeye:''' Hey, put that out. There's a lot of ether in here.\\
'''Soldier:''' Hey, I'm a sergeant, fella.\\
'''Hawkeye:''' And I'm a captain, fella. Which means if this place blows up, I'll go higher than you. Now ''put it out!!''\\
'''Soldier:''' (''grudgingly'') Sorry, sir. (''extinguishes his cigarette'')

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'', this duty is split between Kayto Shields and Ava Crescentia due to the nature of the Sunrider as a carrier vessel. Kayto is the one who holds the rank of Captain, is addressed as such, and commands the Sunrider's carrier group (including its [[HumongousMecha ryders]] and any attached ships), as well as ordering any use of the [[WaveMotionGun Vanguard Cannon]]. Ava (the XO) serves as flag captain for the Sunrider itself during battle.

** Deconstructed when the fleet decides to replace their obsolete planetary-based system of government with one based around the captain of each vessel. The politicians are used to negotiation and compromise, but as each captain is used to running their ship their own way, the government quickly devolves into a NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering.

* Captain Raynor of ''{{Starcraft}}''. Doesn't really look like one, but besides that, he fits the trope to the letter.
