** Every Pathfinder in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' is urged to become this, to set an example with a first step that the rest of the Initiative will follow. It's even truer for Ryder considering [[spoiler:they are the only ones establishing colonies and first contacts, and if none of the original made it, the new Pathfinders will learned as they go... the way Ryder did before them.]]

* In military thriller ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', protagonist John Rumford takes up the old German ''Auftragstaktik'' and John Boyd's model of warfare as information management, with individual initiative as the key component. His leadership style heavily emphasizes the importance of getting his subordinates to think for themselves, and he always prefers to command by suggestion and example, rather than detailed orders. He also fills this role as a community organizer, helping [[SergeantRock Gunny Matthews]] rally the little people against the gangsters who terrorize their neighborhoods.

* Amaterasu of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''.

to:

* Amaterasu [[PlayerCharacter Amaterasu]] of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''.''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''. [[SamusIsAGirl She]], as the Matron [[SheIsTheKing God]] of Nippon, can bestow all sorts of blessings upon the world, such as slicing obstacles in half (up to and including boulders blocking roads) and revitalizing dead flora. Very often, she (and by extension, the player) employs her powers in a way that makes it look as though the ones ''actually'' achieving her feats are mortals, in order to give them the initiative and confidence to keep striving for the greater good of the land and to praise the gods. [[spoiler: This does backfire at least once, namely with Susano, a rather incompetent warrior that misinterprets Amaterasu's help as mockery from the Gods for his laziness and uneffectiveness]]

** However, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm_Pi6OpNKU this video from]] OverlySarcasticProductions argues that Captain America in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' is a deconstruction as the ones on his side are following him because he's "Captain goddamn America", but the ones on the opposite side are opposing him ''because'' he's "Captain goddamn America" and thus realize there's no point trying to convince or persuade him otherwise because they're certain he believes he's doing the right thing.

* Wedge Antilles is arguably this for the StarWarsExpandedUniverse. If he disobeys orders from his superiors, you can take it for granted that these superiors were wrong, either morally or militarily (or both). If he resigns his commission to go after an enemy that the New Republic won't allow him to, you can trust that the enemy needed to be taken out. If there's a war on, he will pick the right side (though not necessarily start out there) even if it means creating the right side himself. To top it all, he's AFatherToHisMen, loyal to a fault to his friends, a devoted family man, and dedicated to the principles of the Rebellion and New Republic (sometimes more than they are themselves). It's hard to find a more consistent moral anchor in the Star Wars universe.

* The Virgin Mary saves souls in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' not by forcing them to be good, but by showing them her paradisiacal happiness and her mastery of the SevenHeavenlyVirtues. In this work, Mary is presented by art throughout Purgatory as the cure for the SevenDeadlySins and Mary herself allows Dante to travel through Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise so he understand the importance of accepting God's love.

* All Might from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' fits and explores this trope: He decided that the only way to make society better, was to make them see something that they could believe and hold on to, so by becoming a Symbol Of Peace, he will inspire people to become better. Unfortunately, this also means that [[spoiler:after he's forced to retire due to finally expending his powers]], it leads to a new era for supervillains and criminals to come crawling out of the woodworks and uniting.
