->''"The Lienid love their princes."''
-->-- '''''{{Graceling}}'''''

There are rulers whom [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating everyone hates]]. There are plain old bad rulers -- GodSaveUsFromTheQueen, the RoyallyScrewedUp, or TheCaligula. There are [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything useless]] rulers. Then there are characters such as TheHighQueen, TheGoodKing, TheWisePrince and those who do their job so well they have VetinariJobSecurity.

And then there are people with this.

Everyone ''loves'' them. They aren't just loyal. They aren't just grateful to have these rulers in charge. They actually care about their rulers on a personal level. A simple request -- not an order, but an appeal -- will get immediate results. They will be hugely honored when a favor is granted to them. Threatening or insulting their ruler triggers anger. If a ruler is sick or hurt, they'll worry like it's their own family. They follow wherever the rulers lead, but never forget that they're human. These rulers have a Hundred Percent Adoration Rating. They are almost always RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething and almost always ModestRoyalty.

Contrast ZeroPercentApprovalRating. An adventurer (not a ruler) treated this way has a HundredPercentHeroismRating. When the adoration is enforced by others, it's UnacceptableTargets.

Much like ZeroPercentApprovalRating, this trope is also impossible in RealLife, as even some of the most admired leaders (and puppies) will have some dissidents who oppose them. It is, however, common in myths, 'official' histories, and propaganda. ''Claiming'' a Hundred Percent Approval Rating is common in the PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny. [[noreallife]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Prince Kail[[spoiler:, later King,]] and Yuri[[spoiler:, later Queen,]] of ''AnatoliaStory''/Red River. Notable in that Yuri gets this treatment without actually being royal at first, though her cover was as the prince's concubine and incarnated goddess.
* The titular ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind''.
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', there are two example of this.
** King Cobra and his family are normally treated this way in their home country, Alabasta, until Crocodile shows up.
** King of Dressrossa [[spoiler:Donquixote Doflamingo]] seems to be adored throughout the Kingdom. [[spoiler:And when the news that he 'abdicated' became public, the citizens went into mass panic.]] He remains popular even after that as the crowd in the Corrida Colosseum cheered and respected the laws his underlings proclaimed, and furiously glared at Franky for speaking ill of their king.
*** The previous king, Riku Doldo III, even more so. A flashback shows that when an enemy tried to extort King Riku for a ridiculous amount of money, Riku [[spoiler:proceeded to beg his subjects to lend him all their money to pay it off]]. He had been forbidden from saying anything about the threat to his citizens or foreign powers, so he couldn't explain himself. Yet it's implied he [[spoiler:might well have succeeded had said enemy not proceeded to sabotage him]].
* It was apparently the same for Arika in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', before [[spoiler:she was framed and scapegoated for the war and OmnicidalManiac terrorists]]. And even then, most of her people [[spoiler:don't believe a word of it.]]
* In ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'', to know [[AllLovingHero Yuuri is to love Yuuri]]. And once he starts [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething getting out there and doing things]], having met him is no longer a prerequisite. Thousands of years of racism can be eroded by his smile.
* Though she isn't the ruler (her father is the democratically-elected Chairman of the ruling council), Lacus Clyne of ''GundamSeed'' and ''GundamSeedDestiny'' is held in this regard by ZAFT. She is held up as a paragon of kindess and gentleness (which, honestly, she [[AllLovingHero kind of is]]), and a few words from her are enough to calm the population down from sheer panic and rage over the Earth attacking them with nukes. [[spoiler:She actually does end up taking control of ZAFT following the Second Bloody Valentine War, gaining her father's old position as Chairperson of the Supreme Council.]]
* Alexander the Great in ''FateZero''. Mind you, he's ''not'' a moral character by modern standards, but his subjects sure loves him and would fight by his side, [[ArmyOfTheDead even beyond death]].
** Not just his subjects: the one named member of his army is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mithrenes Mithrenes]], a ''former enemy''[[note]]As the son of the satrap of Armenia, Mithrenes was a Persian subject and the commander of Sardis' garrison. After Alexander won the Battle of the Granicus against the armies of the local satraps, Mithrenes surrendered the city, and by the time of the decisive Battle of Gaugamela was a full member of Alexander's army, fighting against his own father.[[/note]], and his Master in the Grail War, Waver Velvet, ends up declaring himself his retainer, and [[spoiler:it's implied ''he'' is in Alexander's ArmyOfTheDead as well (one of the depicted soldiers looks suspiciously similar to Waver's 10-years-older self, with his clothes also suspiciously resembling a modern-day business suit)]].
* Baron Beltorey in FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire is loved by his people in Grazton.
* Prnicess Sakura from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', it only takes her to mention she likes apples for her to be presented with a bunch of them next time she's in town. This also extends to most people she meets in her travels.
* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', Neo-Queen Serenity is this in Crystal Tokyo. She took the position of queen of the world at the insistence of most of the population of Earth and proceeded to usher in an era of unparalleled peace and prosperity.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], apparently Celestia had this up the wazoo during the Classical period. There was so much universal praise for her that it caused the LemonyNarrator to replace sections of her essay with [[PlayedForLaughs her own haikus]], just because she had enough of referencing the pro-Celestia sources.
** Of course, in actuality, if the references are to be taken at face-value, the Celestia propaganda was absurd within itself, with praise such as "Celestia is love, Celestia is life."
* In ''FanFic/TheFledglingYear'', this is [[AvertedTrope averted]], even though in the [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia original canon]] everyone seemed to love King Lune and the royal family. A large portion of this fanfic’s plot revolves around a [[TheConspiracy conspiracy]] to kill them off and put a distant cousin on the throne.
* Baron Beltorey in FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire is loved by his people in Grazton.
* In ''FanFic/{{Revelations}}'', Túrante enjoys this. She is Queen to about 300 blood elves. In chapter 18/19, when Túrante returns to her city, every blood elf, without exception, volunteers to follow Túrante to war. In chapter 21/22, when Túrante needs volunteers for a dangerous mission, the whole crowd offer themselves.
--> ''Once again her own people shocked her and she had to smile inwardly at herself... and it was hard to control her emotions, the loyalty and dedication of her people was stronger than she had thought possible...''

[[folder:Film]]
* Padme Amidala in the ''StarWars'' prequels. "Queen of Naboo" is an elected position and her constituents tried to change their laws to allow her to serve beyond the accepted number of years in her terms. Padme declined, which probably made them love her even more. {{Justified|Trope}} in that she was a war hero and in RealLife, they always do well politically after the war.
* In ''Film/IMarriedAWitch'', titular witch Jennifer is in love with Wallace Wooley, a candidate for governor. She uses her magic powers to make EVERYONE in the state vote for him. He is horrified.
--> '''Wally''': What if she runs me for President?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* All the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' after the war, but Jake becomes a legendary figure verging on superhuman.
* The Lienid in Kristin Cashore's ''{{Graceling}}'' tend to feel this way about their princes, as the page quote indicates -- a sea captain is explicitly described as worrying about one such prince "as if it were a member of her family". King Leck of Monsea is beloved by his people. And so kind to children and animals. [[spoiler:[[CompellingVoice His mind control powers help, though]].]]
* ''Literature/CavendonHall'': The Inghams, especially the father. The father, Charles, is clearly beloved by everyone in all of his villages, to the point where the staff have no idea who could have raped Daphne and set the stable on fire. Dulcie and Daphne also seem to be particularly loved by at least the rest of the family and the staff, though it's hard to tell how far that extends beyond the family.
* ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'': Princess Buttercup is described in this way on the day her engagement to Prince Humperdinck is announced. Her beauty is so overwhelming that "the majority [of the crowd] adored her instantly." Later, her popularity increases after she is safely returned from having been kidnapped.
* In the ''{{Dune}}'' prequels, the Atreides are portrayed like this on Caladan. It is implied that this has been the case for generations.
* The short story ''American History'' portrays JohnFKennedy as regarded this way.
* Literature/{{Discworld}} series: Captain Carrot of the City Watch exudes some kind of charisma field (bags of it) that causes everyone to like him, and actually behave like decent and kind people. The worst-kept secret in Ankh-Morpork is that he's the rightful heir to the throne--not that this matters, because he firmly believes the city needs a king "like A fish needs a...er...a thing that doesn't work underwater."
* Aragorn at the end of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.
* Richard in the ''Sword of Truth'', at least amoung the D'Harans.
* ''ConanTheBarbarian'': In "A Witch Shall Be Born", Tamaris. Making the FakeKing gambit by her EvilTwin sister, TheCaligula, that much more shocking.
-->''Taramis, whom all Khauran loves, betraying her people to that devil from Koth! ''
* ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory'': The Childlike Empress. Every inhabitant of Fantastica from the kindly talking donkeys to the terrifying malevolent giant spiders is aware of her status as the BarrierMaiden and gives her the utmost respect.
* King Håkon the Good of Norway in ''Literature/{{Heimskringla}}''. He is so popular that, when he is killed in battle against the sons of Erik Bloodaxe, not only his subjects but even the Erikssons cry for him: “Both friends and foes wept over his death and said that never again would such a good king come to Norway.”
* In [[TheOnion Our Dumb World]], Queen Rania of Jordan is portrayed as this. Heck, the ''entire page'' on Jordan is basically an adoringly written biography of her.
* In ''Literature/DeltoraQuest'', after [[spoiler: King Lief]] saves Deltora 'twice', his people love him. When he asks them to send him their thoughts, they reply "Our thoughts? We would give you our lives!" Pretty much every Deltoran who isn't working for the Shadow Lord agrees. [[spoiler: Of course, then there are the Capricons and the Masked Ones...]]
* Everybody loves the [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Big Brother]], except for the certifiably insane, and even those can successfully overcome their oddity after a treatment in the Ministry of Love.
* The four Pevensie children, during their reign over {{Narnia}}, are universally beloved by their people for having ushered in a golden era of peace and prosperity for the once-embattled kingdom.
** Narnian royalty in general tends to be this. They're pretty much all described as being [[ModestRoyalty modest]] and [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething willing to do what they must to protect the land]]. [[spoiler:Even when the last king of Narnia is overthrown, it's only done out of fear of Aslan's wrath and not because the animals don't love him.]]
* Queen Ehlana is said to have this in ''TheElenium'' and its sister series ''The Tamuli'' by virtue of her intelligence, her kindness, and [[spoiler:being willing to avoid the incest that plagued the previous generation of royals]].
* Queen Mallow, of ''Literature/TheGirlWhoCircumnavigatedFairylandInAShipOfHerOwnMaking'', was beloved throughout Fairyland. When she was overthrown and imprisoned by [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen the Marquess]], everyone went into mourning and held tight to the hope that she was still alive somewhere. [[spoiler:Sadly, as it turns out, Mallow and the Marquess are one and the same...]]
* In Literature/Elantris, Roaden gains this status inside of Elantris by the end of the story, which is fairly reasonable given that he turned the suffering wretches of the city into happy, functioning people, protected them from the three warlords, and eventually [[spoiler: restored them]].
* The Starks in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the people of the North are very loyal to them, and declare war on the Lannisters for Neds death. Even with [[spoiler: Robb killed in the Red Wedding by the Frey's and Boltons]], several Northern houses are planning to turn against them both by siding with Stannis, and place a Stark, any Stark left as liege lord again. Even the mountain clans side with Stannis to avenge the Starks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Renly Baratheon is ''so'' popular among the Stormlanders that they ''all'' swear fealty to him instead of Stannis, even though the bannermen are technically committing treason. (Although Renly is the Lord of Storm's End--and therefore the liege lord of the Stormlands--Stannis as the eldest surviving male member of the family is now the head of House Baratheon, and Renly is duty-bound to obey him.) [[spoiler:After Renly's sudden demise, Davos reports to Stannis that all the men grieve for his younger brother.]]
* Subverted in the ''{{Blackadder}} Back and Forth'' special. It ends with 21st Century!Blackadder as the King of England, so wildly popular that he was able to disband Parliament and make himself an absolute monarch...because he stole Baldrick's time machine and [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight manipulated history]] to put himself on the throne.
* Like the ''SwordOfTruth'' example above, Richard in ''LegendOfTheSeeker'' gains such approval in an AlternateTimeline caused by Cara never becoming a Mord'Sith and stopping him from using the Boxes of Orden. His closest advisor is [[BigBad Darken Rahl]], his older brother (father in novels) and enemy. Of course, the [[TheDevil Keeper]] has to go and break the boxes, returning control of D'Hara to Rahl.
* Ted from ''BetterOffTed'' is adored by all of his workers who will do virtually anything to curry his favor. Even his IceQueen boss Veronica adores him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': This is one of the goals Solar exalts strive for. [[MessianicArchetype Some of them achieved it the honest way]], [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul others... not so much.]]
* Warhammer 40K actually has a form of this in the Imperium of Man. If only because less than devout worship of the Emperor tends to result is fates worse than death at the hands of the Inquistion if lucky, and Chaos or worse if not.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* If the player chooses the Paragon ending for VideoGame/MassEffect1, s/he will have this from most people in VideoGame/MassEffect2. Your friends (with one notable exception based on him/her being LockedOutOfTheLoop by another character's sudden bout of PoorCommunicationKills) will go to hell and back for you, will quit their jobs and affiliate with a terrorist organization to work for you (or, contrarily, will actually quit their jobs ''with'' a terrorist organization to follow along when you tell them where to stick it), and you'll even see a turian shop-owner seriously stating that he would name his first-born child after [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] if s/he asked. In fact, only Udina and the turian Councilor seem to have a low opinion of you.
** Though Hackett tells Shepard that s/he will have to make a ZeroApprovalGambit after s/he was forced to destroy a mass relay which went supernova and killed over 300,000 batarians, in order to avert war between humanity and the batarians.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''
** Princess Natalia. When she and the rest of the group are being pursued by the king's guards, normal civilians [[YouShallNotPass stand in the way to stop them in order to protect their princess]], even though Natalia protests, pointing out that [[spoiler:she's not the real princess]], but the citizens reply that they don't care about [[spoiler:her false title of royalty]], they care about how kind and helpful she was as a leader.
** Emperor Peony has this too, as seen by talking to every NPC in Grand Chokmah. Even when the world is literally falling apart around them, they all trust that he has things in hand and will do what's best for everyone.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' has this in the case of Richard, though only during ''Lineage and Legacies.'' Hubert and Malik suggest he might even be more well-liked in Strahta and Fendel ''than the current leaders of Strahta and Fendel.'' Note that both Strahta and Fendel's leaders are implied to be elected, while Windor is a monarchy, and Richard took the throne [[spoiler: by murdering his (admittedly corrupt and evil) uncle.]]. Also keep in mind that Fendel in particular had been at war with Windor for several years previous to this, and that Richard recently spent a good amount of time [[spoiler: possessed by a demon from space, flying around on Nova monsters, absorbing all the eleth from the valkines, [[{{Narm}} screaming his head off]] [[MemeticMutation about his friends,]] and cackling while stabbing anything that got in his way.]] And now he's popular enough to have his own line of keychains and fruit snacks...
* ''BatenKaitos''
** Melodia is the single most beloved figure in the world. [[spoiler:She's playing ZeroPercentApprovalRating Geldoblame like a fiddle, of course.]]
** To the citizens of Alfard, Geldoblame gets this reaction. It helps that he's deliberately cultivated strong civil pride.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'': Princess Peach is beloved on a personal level by all of her subjects.
** Except for the Goombas, who defected to Bowser in the original storyline (though not all of them, as some [=RPGs=] reveal that there are benevolent Goombas)
*** And on that note, Bowser himself in the eyes of his minions, DependingOnTheWriter. Some of the earlier [=RPGs=] showed him ruling by fear and having his troops desert, while more recent material shows they follow him just as loyally as Peach's subjects do her.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': [[LegacyCharacter each]] Princess Zelda is loved by everyone, or at least everyone shown. There's been exactly one non-villain in the entire series who didn't like her and she eventually came around. (And depending on [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation your interpretation of Ganon/dorf]], even ''he'' does.)
* ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}'': "We Love the King Day." They sure do; they pay their city's upkeep out of their own pockets for a whole year.
** In Civilization V, they celebrate with increased population growth. Yes, they love their ruler so much they copulate for him/her.
* ''{{Stronghold}}'': Building nice structures, feeding your people with a variety of foods, building churches and making sure the ale houses are built will make you beloved, how the nice structures will make your people work slower at the exchange for an army that will defend their home at all costs.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' and subsequently ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', there was a prince who was adored by his subjects. He enjoyed talking and hanging out with the common populace and when he was serving in the army he always got to know his companions and knew to take care of them. [[FaceHeelTurn His name was]] [[BigBad Arthas]].
* Gulcasa in ''YggdraUnion'', although you don't find out until the last third of the game (the heroes resent him for [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs various]] [[YouKilledMyFather reasons]] and assume that everyone else must, too). As he has spent the past three years sweating blood to repair the damage his negligent predecessor did to his country, suffered just as much as his citizens under said predecessor, and is [[BrokenHero pitifully nice to boot]], the Bronquian civilians' abject adoration is a bit understandable.
* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'', TheHero is revealed to be the prince of Gotha (and later the king.) For the rest of the game, people in that small kingdom loves him and the innkeeper will let his party stay in her inn for free despite that [[spoiler:after he takes the crown, he goes rescuing his wife, goes missing, and is unable to do his job as a king for ten years]]. Maybe it's something to do with him being a son of a very good king and him [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething being very heroic.]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheSimsMedieval'' you can turn your Monarch into one of these by answering Petitions (for your own populace) and passing Edicts (for annexed territories.) There's even an achievement for it. Sadly, there are few actual gameplay benefits, so you can ''also'' have a very unpopular monarch with no consequences.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Tropico}}'', you can be the El Presidente everyone honestly loves. Keep your citizens well-fed, raise wages, lower taxes, give people access to religion, healthcare, and entertainment; and don't forget to erect landmarks (some of which can be dedicated to you, but if you're really nice, it's justified). Even those who have already joined the rebel will return to citizenship!
* Players in ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' can get this in the kingdom they help manage, simply by helping their subjects do their jobs. Maintaining the 100% approval rating is the way to gain the most resources in payment for managing the kingdom.
* King Ludwig as he was depicted in the ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight'' games. When the final part of his ThanatosGambit fails and he is carted off to prison, he entrusts the final piece of ThePlan to a local woman, having enough faith that his loyal subject will fulfil his final request - and she does.
* ''GalacticCivilizations'': you can actually achieve this. With careful structuring and a lot of VR centres, you can even manage it ''while taking three-quarters of your subjects' income''.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', depending on how you choose to play the Warden, you can achieve this with any or all of your nine potential companions. The right combination of gifts, dialogue options, and morality choices can lead to this result. Of course, since four of your companions are also possible {{Love Interest}}s, this can additionally lead to some TriangRelations.
** This then lends itself to the royalty aspect of the trope, as it is possible for the Warden to become [[spoiler: King-Consort of Ferelden (by marrying the widowed Queen Anora) or Queen (by marrying the HiddenBackupPrince Alistair). In the latter case, the epilogue notes that the royal couple become extremely popular, in part because the people can see how very HappilyMarried they are]].
** If a hardened [[spoiler:Alistair]] rules together with Anora, they make such a good couple that the people eventually consider the chaos of the civil war and the Landsmeet worth it for delivering such beloved monarchs.
* Amusingly, former BigBad Lord Dearche of the ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable'' games is mentioned in the [[AudioAdaptation Sound Stages]] to have gained one [[spoiler:in Eltria]] after the events of ''The Gears of Destiny''. The fact that her idea of conquering [[spoiler:Eltria]] involves using her nigh-unlimited powers to [[spoiler:perform an extensive terra-forming project to rejuvenate the dying planet]] may have had something to do with it. Being a CardCarryingVillain, reminding her of this is one of the easiest ways to earn her ire.
* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing: New Leaf'' [[EnforcedTrope actually requires you]] to have a 100% adoration rating before you can start doing any work as a mayor proper.
* Viciously [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the backstory of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius''. Apostle Misaha is said to have been more loved than any Apostle before her. The common citizenry loved her so much that the moment they had someone to blame for her assassination, they committed genocide in her name.
* Tandi of the ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' series was made president of the NCR after the death of her father Aradesh. She was such a popular president that she was continually re-elected until her death. In ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' however, Caesar notes that this technically makes her a dictator in his eyes.
* In ''VideoGame/AWitchsTale'', Queen Alice is adored and revered by all of her subjects, especially Liddell.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* The musical ''Evita'' tells the story of Eva Peron, beloved wife of Argentinian president Juan Peron. Both were presented as popular among the people, but she in particular was greatly adored and eventually given the title of "spiritual leader of Argentina".
* Implied and also parodied in ''Theatre/ThePiratesofPenzance''--when asked to surrender "in the name of the queen", the pirates do so, no questions asked (and keep in mind that this is how the entireconflict of the play is resolved). Both a DeusExMachina and a deliberate lampooning of Victorianism.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' the Old Heterodynes somehow managed to combine this trope with being Evil {{Mad Scientist}}s, at least inside Mechanicsburg.
** They were beloved in their own city, but had ZeroPercentApprovalRating elsewhere, because of how evil and destructive they were. Barry and Bill redeemed their family's name with their heroics and were hailed as the greatest heroes of their generation, resulting in this trope.
* In ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'' Collective of Anarchist States First Advisor Laura Black achieved a [[http://www.poisonedminds.com/d/20080314.html 96% approval rating]] after nuking Texas, the highest since the CAS's founder (and that poll was restricted to those who hadn't actually met him). It scared her into fleeing the country, seeing how there was now nowhere to go but down.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Most {{Disney Princess}}es who actually ''are'' princesses.
** It's most pronounced in the beginning of ''{{Disney/Tangled}}''. When the pregnant Queen is sick and dying, her husband, the guards, and damn near ''the entire civilian population'' set out to the mainland to search for the magic flower that can save her. Subsequently, their daughter, Rapunzel, a bright ray of sunshine in every sense of the word, is equally beloved and revered by everyone she meets, [[spoiler: and she's just as popular as her parents when she is finally freed from Mother Gothel and reclaims her birth right]].
* TJ of ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' is loved by every one of the students, so much so that when one student doesn't like him, it's a plot point for the whole episode.
** Even Mrs. Finster (who practically ''hates'' children) likes him.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Princess Celestia gets so much respect that the moment she shows up, even [[{{Pride}} Rainbow]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Dash]] and [[GenkiGirl Pinkie]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pie]] genuflected in silent reverence - while [[TheHero Twilight]] [[MagicKnight Sparkle]], the only one who had personal familiarity with her, went for a hug. Might have something to do with her being a [[PhysicalGod physical goddess]]. Later episodes, though, show that many of her subjects are a little intimidated by her, and frequently fuss about making a good impression (always needlessly), and that Twilight has SuperOCD about never letting her down EVER.
** Surprisingly enough, the comics show that Queen Chrysalis is quite popular with the changelings.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''{{Darkseid}}'' is revered by all of his subjects. When Superman beats him to a pulp and throws him to the downtrodden Lowlies, they immediately try to find medical attention for him.
** The Flash (Wally West) in ''{{WesternAnimation/Justice League}}'' in his town of Central City. He knows more then a few citizens by name and they all love him back.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', Princess Bubblegum is simple ''adored'' by her people to the point that a group of her subjects ''literally'' gave chunks of themselves for her.
** Well, it was either that or [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating Lemongrab]]. Still, she is pretty well liked by most of her subjects.
* Optimus Prime is this beloved by the Autobots in most versions of ''{{Transformers}}'' where he is the leader of all Autobots (as opposed to just the main team, like in Beast Wars and Animated.) Notable exceptions include the comic version of G1 Grimlock, who feels Prime isn't strong enough (read: isn't a BloodKnight like Grimmy and believes smashing stuff doesn't solve everything.) and many {{Redshirt}} Autobots in ''Armada'' (a moment of realism about it being war: instead of just going along with the new situation, it was "you mean we suffered heavy losses to to the 'cons taking this territory, and now we're gonna ''walk away from it and work with the 'cons'' to fight some fairy tale bogeyman called '[[GodOfEvil Unicron]]'?")
* King Gregor and his daughter, Princess Calla, are deeply loved by the residents of Dunwyn, in {{Disney}}'s ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears''.
