* ASongOfIceAndFire has quite a few, as would be expected given the high number of ManipulativeBastard and [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] characters. Tyrion Lannister is a rare example of being this trope despite most people ''not'' actually finding him all that charming or likeable, partly because they assume BeautyEqualsGoodness and he's an ugly dwarf, and partly because his DeadpanSnarker tendencies tend to irritate people.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''. At least one character in the PC group needs to have good social skills to deal with the various [=NPCs=] the group will encounter. They should have high Charisma, good Etiquette skills and possibly cyberware/bioware that enhances those qualities (e.g. tailored pheromones). Such a person may be called "The Face" of the group.

** The crown jewel of social expertise is the infamous "Pornomancer" build (the TropeNamer for ThePornomancer, but not necessarily an example). A Social Adept with the right build could throw fifty dice at a social problem, while even the greatest grand masters of a skill would normally only get twenty-five at most.

Added DiffLines:

* Most characters in ''VideoGame/RenownedExplorers'' to a greater or lesser degree. Two of the [[TacticalRockPaperScissors three combat options]] involve either [[BreakThemByTalking demoralizing your foe]] or convincing them to [[BefriendingTheEnemy become your friend]] (the third involves physical attacks). Speaker characters are the best at social combat but all characters are skilled in at least one of the two social combat forms.

** ''{{Exalted}}'' has a threefold division between social skills, mental skills, and physical skills. Any character with high social skills is a social expert. Among the Solars, members of the Zenith and Eclipse castes have the greatest talent in this area.
** DresdenFiles goes one step further, where you can fully engage in social combat, allowing you to browbeat your opponents into submission, with social skills.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Karyl of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' is capable of turning a group of unwilling "[[GotVolunteered volunteers]]" into staunch supporters of his cause with some social manipulation and playing on their emotion. He usually prefers this method to physical compulsion more typical of Paradise's armies.
