** Ironically, he is also somewhat of a subversion. He did not believe in himself all that much. However, he did believe in Simon and recognized his potential far before anyone else have. Seeing Simon's potential was what gave Kamina the assurance of being so confident, which in turn, allowed SImon to be more confident and bring out both of his potential.

** Ironically, he is also somewhat of a subversion because he didn't really have much self-confidence himself. He just played a good show of it and relied on Simon.

** His successor, Midoriya, shows signs of being this: During the time he was at UA, he helped Mineta to [[spoiler: outgrow his cowardice and fight as well]], Todoroki to [[spoiler: deal with the issues regarding his father and even visit his mother in the hospital]], Iida to [[spoiler: become a better hero by leaving aside his revenge and focusing on saving people]]. He is still a downplayed example, but it's all still there.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ned Stark's memory serves as this to many characters even after his death, lasting well into Season 4. All his children in various ways try to live up to his teachings and example, while the North thoroughly adores him. Even the Lords of the Vale, who knew him as a young man when he fostered with Jon Arryn, know him well. Even Jaime Lannister, who did not get along with him at all, resolves to try and redeem his honor by tasking Brienne with safeguarding Ned Stark's daughter Sansa with "Oathkeeper", a sword Tywin re-purposed from "Ice":
--> '''Jaime:''' You'll be protecting Ned Stark's daughter with his own sword.

* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'': Korra's actions over the course of the series have inspired her teammates and other allies to follow her example of making the world a better place. This came across strongly by the end of Book 3: [[spoiler: Korra is severely injured after fighting Zaheer, but Tenzin is inspired to have the new Air Nation follow her example. In the years that followed, people came to see that the Avatar is more than just a hero--she is an ideal]].

** It's worth noting that the game's morality system literally refers to this particular style of action as "Paragon". (Actions taken from a more pragmatic mindset are called "Renegade".)

* Touma Kamijou from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' seems to have an unconscious gift for turning the people around him into heroes. Most people he defeats eventually become inspired to do the right thing, using him as an example.
* [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat Rider]] from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' gives a speech about this to [[KingArthur Saber]] and [[TheLegendOfGilgamesh Archer]] as they debate which of them was the greatest king. Saber defines true kingship as nobly sacrificing everything to protect one's subjects and accuses Rider of being merely a tyrant. Rider counters that Saber was never really a leader and ultimately a failure as a king. He explains to them that he pursued glory not just for its own sake but in order to inspire greatness in all those who followed him. He then dramatically ends the debate by revealing that his ultimate power is to summon the spirit of everyone to ever be inspired by him, an army of thousands of Heroic Spirits.

* [[UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat Rider]] from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' gives a speech about this at one point, mentioning that a king doesn't have to be alone in his superiority, and should always be an example that his subjects want to follow. He then demonstrates his success with this strategy by summoning his former troops, all of whom had eventually become Heroic Spirits themselves.
