TheTeam leader has been temporarily [[CharacterDeath or permanently]] taken out of commission, and NumberTwo has suddenly found his group declaring him TheLeader. The problem is he's genuinely reluctant to [[TakeUpMySword take up the role]]. He may feel guilty for [[TheUsurper usurping]] the position or afraid he's UnfitForGreatness. One or more of his new subordinates will say "[[GetAholdOfYourselfMan Get ahold of yourself, you're our leader now.]]" in a DareToBeBadass for the chain of command. If the DecoyProtagonist has met his untimely end, this can be the unveiling of [[TheHero the real hero.]]

* In ''K19TheWidowmaker'', the young reactor engineering chief at first chickens out when it is his turn to do some welding in the highly radioactive reactor core. Getting ignored for his cowardice, he mans up, sneaks into the core, and not only does his job, but does ignore orders to come out unless the job is done, and does a HeroicSacrifice in the process.

* At the beginning of ''In Harm's Way'', Lieutenant (j.g.) [=McConnell=] is the command duty officer aboard a destroyer that is docked as the attack on Pearl Harbor begins. With the captain and first officer are ashore at church, he orders the engine room to light all boilers. When there is enough steam to maneuver, he orders that all lines be cast off and that the ship go to open sea. He refuses to slow down for the captain and first officer (who try to catch up to the ship in a launch) to come aboard, as this would make the destroyer an easy target for the Japanese pilots. (This was based on an actual incident.)
* In ''StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', Admiral Kirk is ordered to take the ''Enterprise'' to Regula I, as communications with the station has failed. He is willing to allow Captain Spock to maintain command, but Spock insists that as senior officer, Kirk must assume command.
