* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Describing Emu Hojo as [[TheHeart sweet]], [[WideEyedIdealist kindhearted]] doctor would be pretty accurate if it didn't leave out the important part about him being a skilled [[TheChessmaster manipulator]] with a knack for BatmanGambit. Getting his [[DysfunctionJunction fellow riders]] to work together through tricking them or saving a patient by stroking his surgeon colleague's perfectionist ego are just the early examples.

** Elan is a [[GenreSavvy story-telling expert]] because his role is the party bard. This makes him able to predict the actions and motivations of almost everyone involved. His father is however far more experienced in the role.

** Elan is a [[GenreSavvy story-telling expert]] because his role is the party bard. This makes him able to predict the actions and motivations of almost everyone involved. His father [[spoiler: RunsInTheFamily as Elan and Nale's father, Tarquin is however far much the same. However, he is a much more experienced in and intelligent example of this while also malicious. He uses this to be a shadow ruler alongside his adevnturer buddies as part of a grand scheme to conquer an ''entire continent.'' Unfortunately, his adherence to storytelling tradition (and subsequent hatred of subversion of conventions) along with egomania and ControlFreak issues are what allow Elan and the role.Order to crush his plans.]]

* ''Series/BurnNotice'' has Michael Weston.Westen. This ability seems to be a prerequisite of a successful spy, since they need to be able to spin even tall tales into believable ones long enough to work over the mark.

* Both [[TheDragon Princess Azula]] and [[EvilChancellor Long Feng]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Though, when they betray each other, Azula wins out in the end, [[MagnificentBastard easily.]] Azula's actually an interesting case. She can accurately predict the movements, motivations and operational 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.

** 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.

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. 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.
