** In ''[[PoorlyDisguisedPilot A Call To Arms]]'', it is evident that the foreman at the shipyard for the new destroyers considers Micheal Garibaldi to be a most unwelcome version of this, but for the [[{{inverted}} inverse]] of the normal reason: The foreman wants to get everything perfect, and Garibaldi is insisting that he accept things as "Good Enough" and move on so they can actually complete the project. [[FridgeBrilliance Of course]], it's also possible he was delaying over every little problem because [[spoiler: he was actually TheMole.]]

* Cassandra plays this role in ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'', causing Varric to narrate the story in response to her questioning.
* The player character theoretically becomes one of these in the appropriately named ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', although this involves very little actual inquisitioning. Cassandra gives you this treatment at the start but ends up working for you.

** Miles Vorkosigan pulls off faking this in ''The Warrior's Apprentice'' as part of an IndyPloy - or rather, the latest in a long string of Indy Ploys.
** In ''Memory'', the reader is introduced to the position of Imperial Auditor, a troubleshooter answerable only to the Emperor with vast powers to investigate situations beyond what's addressed by normal channels, in a combination of this trope and its sister trope InternalAffairs. Miles is assigned the position to investigate an unusual attack on [=ImpSec's=] security chief, and thinks he's killing time waiting for field agents to report on off-planet leads. As it happens, after a few days of snooping, he finds what he needs to crack the case in the basement of [=ImpSec=] HQ.

* In the Marine Corps novels by W.E.B. Griffin, the Marines have come to the conclusion that people of this type will never go away until they find something to complain about. So whenever they suspect that an Inspector is coming, they make sure there are no major problems, and then deliberately leave a handful of obvious minor problems for the Inspector to find so that he will find them, report the insignificant infractions, and then leave so they can get back to work.

* In the ''Franchise/DragonAge'', this has, for the longest time, been the function of the Lord-Seeker, the leader of the Seekers of Truth, in regards to the Templar Order and the Circle of Magi. In ''Literature/{{Asunder}}'', Lord-Seeker Lambert van Reeves removes the Templar Knight-Commander of Val Royeaux from office and assumes direct command of the Order in response to a Circle mage attempting to assassinate the [[ThePope Divine]]--and things only go downhill from there. Depending on your influence on Cassandra Pentaghast in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Lord-Seeker's role may be reformed after 9:41 Dragon, however.
