[[AC: WebAnimation]] * Roman Torchwick from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is incredibly skilled at giving speeches, to the point that he can walk onto a stage in front of a mob of angry [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]], use ''[[CardCarryingVillain himself]]'' as an example of HumansAreTheRealMonsters, and have them cheering for him after only two minutes.

** Azula's actually an interesting case. She can accurately predict the movements, motivations and operatonal methods of virtually anyone she encounters. This makes her an incredibly dangerous. She can also be very charismatic at times (just look at her aforementioned take down of Long Feng. But when it comes to every day, basic social interaction, she fails. Completely. Ruling through fear and/or intimidation is pretty much the only thing in her social skill set; excellent for being the dictator of an entire nation, not so much when trying to mingle with people her own age.

Social expertise is an alignment-neutral skill, but it's practically a prerequisite for ManipulativeBastard, MagnificentBastard and TheChessmaster. Nearly every DeadlyDecadentCourt will have at least one, probably more. May also be TheCharmer. On TheTeam, they are TheFace. Protagonist Social Experts are {{Guile Hero}}es, supporting Social Experts end up as MisterExposition, and villainous ones are normally large-scale {{Manipulative Bastard}}s. Contrast with NoSocialSkills.

* LexLuthor. His people skills allow him to both keep up his VillainWithGoodPublicity status as well as make sure his covert operations are in order. He is so good at this he is one of the few people who can keep the ''Joker'' in check during a villain team up.
