Note that this is the Western depiction. In Soviet fiction, the political officers often were stern but just, inspiring and actually caring, and performed death-defying feats of heroism to inspire similar acts of bravery in soldiers, based on the fact that the Political Officers as an institute were abolished in 1943, and had to continue as common line officers. An alternative Soviet depiction from much later years is a [[ObstructiveBureaucrat lazy useless paper-pusher]] who never does anything useful and torments other officers with filling countless forms and boring lectures about "political situation".

* ''StarWars: Film/TheForceAwakens'': Captain Phasma seems one of these for the First Order. When she notices Stormtrooper FN-2187, [[spoiler: who almost immediately afterwards defects to the good guys with the new name "Finn"]], hesitating and failing to assist in the execution of civilians, she orders him to report to her "division" for an assessment. She later states that her division had psychologically examined him and ordered "re-conditioning". She also commands troops in the field as well, and her silver chrome armor with a cape lets you know she's no ordinary soldier.
