* The ''Literature/{{FallenEmpire}}'' novella "Discovery and Flight" features a political officer who both functions as a morale officer and loyalty inspector and (possibly) a spy on his superiors. To his credit, he [[spoiler:spends the battle comprising most of the novella encouraging the gunnery crews at great risk to his own life.]]

* Tom Sharpe’s apartheid-era South African satires Literature/{{RiotousAssembly}} and Literature/{{IndecentExposure}} feature Luitnant Verkramp, who is much feared and distrusted because of he is believed to be an agent of BOSS (although whether this is actually true, is open to question given that Konstabel Els, in particular, is believed to be of mixed race and well known for his enthusiasm for inter-racial intercourse)

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Face of the Enemy", Troi is disguised as a Tal'Shiar officer who fills this role on a Romulan warship. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation It could also be said that this is also her role on the Enterprise]].

* In ''[[Literature/CoDominium Falkenberg's Legions]]'', the Soviet-backed International Brigades sent to the Santiago Civil War are controlled by Political Officers. Very much in the Soviet zampolit style, the one featured takes on the Western stereotype.

* A rare Western-style version appears in the second volume of Creator/DCComics's ''[[StarTrekExpandedUniverse Star Trek]]'' series (set immediately after ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier''): Starfleet ''finally'' has enough of Kirk's out of control cowboy antics after several rather high-profile interstellar incidents in quick succession, and assigns him a civilian protocol officer to keep him under control and ensure Starfleet protocol is being adhered to. Unfortunately, Starfleet makes the mistake of assigning him a ''female'' officer, the quite attractive R. J. Blaise. [[TheCasanova Kirk being Kirk]], it didn't take long before Blaise eventually decided their mutual attraction was detrimental to the mission, and eventually resigns.
