** Belkar is a more focused example. Multiple times he's shown he knows exactly what to say to someone, whether it be a mentally-unstable paladin, a grieving friend or a man who's just got a taste for violence. He isn't ''nice'' about it, but he can get them to do what he wants.

He isn't ''nice'' about it, but he can get them to do what he wants. An odd example, as Belkar has no social skills whatsoever, but is an expert on hurting people - it's up to his discretion whether that pain can provoke someone, break them down, or motivate them to keep going out of anger.

* [[BigBad Tobi]] [[spoiler:aka [[FallenHero Obito Uchiha]]]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. He can accurately predict actions and motivations of virtually anyone he encounters. Also he can manipulating them, either by subtly corrupting their own goals or simply imposing them his own beliefs. This best seen in the existence of Akatsuki, its wildly-differing members working together because they believed the organisation would further their own ends when in actuality, they were mere tools that Tobi used to achieve his plans. He also was able to use whole countries to his advantage, so he used the overall stability and suspicion between the countries to increase his own power by providing Akatsuki as the mercenaries carrying out orders and receive remuneration for work performed.
