* ''VideoGame/StarcraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'', Zagara is pretty much a {{Reconstruction}} of the trope. As Kerrigan, the Queen of the Zerg, has her undergo evolution to increase her power and thinking capacity, Zagara begins to think she's strong enough to take command of the Zerg from Kerrigan. However, she comes to recognize Kerrigan is a better leader than her on account of being even stronger and smarter, thus Zagara resolves continue to evolve so that when she eventually tries to take over from Kerrigan, she'll be able to succeed. Until then she is firmly loyal; at one point when Kerrigan is injured, she's surprised to see Zagara assisting her recuperation rather than getting rid of her in her weakened state. Zagara says it's because she's still not ready for that, there is still more to learn from Kerrigan and the Zerg still need her.

* ''Franchise/StarCraft'', Zagara serves as a reconstruction of the trope. At first she rebels against Kerrigan's rule of the Zerg Swarm, but when subdued admits she was only doing as Kerrigan, suffering from LaserGuidedAmnesia, ordered; only the strongest shall rule the Swarm, and Zagara now knows that is her. Kerrigan seeks a more capable second-in-command and so have Abathur evolve Zagara to be stronger and smarter. Following her evolutions Zagara contemplates killing Kerrigan and taking over the Swarm, but recognizes she isn't strong enough. As the campaign progresses it becomes apparent that Zagara ''does'' want to command, but her first interest is in making sure the Zerg have the best leader they can have. For the moment, that is Kerrigan, and Zagara acknowledges that even if she ''could'' somehow usurp Kerrigan, she would be an inferior leader. Thus she is content to be a loyal lieutenant as she continues to evolve and learn, and when the day comes that she is confident that she would be just as good a leader as Kerrigan, ''then'' she will usurp her.

** Most Dragons in early seasons are loyal, but it is mentioned in a two-part episode that Divatox's mother in ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' turned on her husband - patriarch of the pirate clan - and took over. In most seasons after that, starting with ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', the Trope is used often. Generally, there's two Dragons - one Starscreamy, and one loyal. Which one ends up on top varies.

* Mullins in ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates'' mostly as a counterpart to Smee’s SycophanticServant of Captain Hook. Although Starsky has the role sometimes he is less vocal in his questioning of Hook’s plans. Of course Hook is pretty badass in this version (and helps that is voiced by TimCurry) and a very competent villain and his plans are generally very good. Mullins and Starky’s questioning is more related to point out Hook’s futile obsession with Peter Pan and how they waste their lives there when they can be pillaging somewhere else.

** Rampage in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeExtreme''. Rampage has his sight set to SKAR's leadership (to the point he even mutters "Things won't be satisfactory until I'm in control of SKAR" right in front of Iron Klaw) and undermine Iron Klaw's authority by stockpilling weapons, running his own operations and disobeying orders to not attack Inter-Alliance targets. Iron Klaw is [[GenreSavvy fairly quick to catch on to Rampage's treacherous nature]] and only keep him around due to him being useful as a weapon supplier. When Rampage finally makes an over attempt to take control of SKAR, Iron Klaw lets him rot in prison when his attempt to attack Fort Knox fails and is deeply opposed to the notion of freeing him when representatives of SKAR's other division propose to do so.

** Starscream was shockingly proactive, almost succeeding in assassinating Megatron in the first episode and finding himself on Megatron's bad side immediately after. Then in the season two finale, [[spoiler:his clones do this to him]]. Oh, the irony. Unlike most of his other incarnations, Megatron has essentially no tolerance for Starscream in this setting. In fact, [[spoiler:since Starscream is immortal due to an Allspark fragment,]] Megatron kills him several times over, but Starscream did get the last laugh on Megatron in the finale. [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal Posthumously]].]]
