These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Axis of Time
Magnificent Bastard: Lieutenant Ali Moertopo manages to talk his way out of execution and torture while in Japanese custody, and ends up becoming the governor of Indonesia, first under the Japanese, then under the Americans. While under the former's thumb, he secretly builds up an anti-Japanese guerrilla army to support the American invasion/liberation of the islands.
