** Cassandra and Leliana were, by ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition,'' essentially CoDragons to the pope, investigating the mage/templar war before the tragedy that kicks off the game. Being perhaps the most powerful and senior ranking characters and the Inquisition being largely their making by rights they should lead. Instead Cassandra has no interest in power and Leliana is content to play the puppet master and lead from the shadows, lifting The Inquisitor to power instead. Incidentally Cassandra and Leliana are two of the good choices to become the world's religious leader.

This trope is the opposite of TheStarscream, who spends almost all his time scheming to get rid of his superior and assume the top spot. TheCreon may be TheGoodChancellor, a SarcasticDevotee, or even a PoisonousFriend - there are many options.

* In a story like ''Series/Gotham'' where the TheStarscream is more the rule than the exception, Butch Gilzen stands out as someone who was fine being the underboss for Fishmooney [[spoiler: and later for Cobblepot even after the brainwashing effects wore off]] and for the brief time he was in charge of the underworld, he seemed a bit out of water and less than enthusiastic about the responsibilies.

* ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'': Igor spent likely centuries in the castle without a boss, but always chose to reincarnate the Count since he wanted him to be in charge and slaughter the peasants. That is why he is loyal to the hero.

* Faramir from ''TheLordOfTheRings'' is this - and especially in the novel: He outright rejects the power that The One Ring could've given him, contrary to his brother Boromir who desired that power (albeit briefly). In the movies Frodo convinces him that the Ring is just too dangerous to wield, somewhat blunting this point.

->One thing I've learned over the years: being the guy in charge also means you're the guy with the biggest target on your back. Whether it's another gang looking to take whatever you're scraped together, or some punk thinking he knows better than the boss, there's always, ''always'' someone gunning for you. I don't want that target on me. But, if I can be the guy just ''behind'' the guy in charge, that suits me just fine. If I've got his ear, I can steer things in a direction that benefits me, and usually everyone else.

Creons are not always good people. Their motivations may be completely selfish. On occasion, a Creon will be perfectly willing for his superior to be replaced by someone else - but not by the Creon himself. Most often however, The Creon will be the best right-hand a leader could ask for.

* Gage in ''Videogame/{{Fallout4}}'' has no interest in becoming the Overboss of the raiders of Nuka-world, fearing that he'd be in the crosshairs of all the other raiders with any ambition. Instead, he's content to let the player character take the role after they kill the previous Overboss, Colter, in gladiatorial combat, and use his experience of working with raider gangs to help you get comfortable in your new position.

* ''Series/HouseOfCardsUS'' has Frank Underwood's vice-president Donald Blythe. After Lucas Goodwin's assassination attempt puts Frank in the hospital, Blythe becomes Acting President under the TwentyFifthAmendment. He shows surprising mettle during his time as acting president (with help behind the scenes by Claire, of course), but has no interest in leading, and is happy to relinquish power when Frank returns.

* Alexander Tagere in the ''Literature/ArciaChronicles'' does everything in his power to avoid the crown despite widespread popular support, just like his father Charles before him, as they both believe (correctly) that power corrupts or, at the very least, brings utter misfortune. Unlike his father, however, Alexander is eventually forced to take the throne when it turns out he is the sole remaining legitimate heir.
* Marshall Roque Alva in ''Literature/ReflectionsOfEterna'' is the main reason the Ollar dynasty still keeps their throne, but he is perfectly fine with just being the first among their generals, actively resists all attempts to put the crown on his head, and will risk his life and honor to protect his sovereign, the current Ollar king. Whether he knows that [[spoiler:he is a Rakan (i.e. a descendant of the previous imperial dynasty) by blood and the designated successor to the throne (by the will of the first Ollar king) in case the Ollar line ends]] is left ambiguous.
