* [[UsefulNotes/RobinOlds Colonel Robin Olds]], a World War II vet who fought in Vietnam, his unconventional leadership style an tactics got results but infuriated his leadership. Despite this, he had a very low tolerance for people or organizations who could not meet standards and perform their jobs. Being a Military Maverick didn't mean you stopped being ''military'', after all.


* Many Space Marine chapters from ''TabtletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' interpret the Codex Astartes differently, and go their own way about implementing it. Then there's the [[Literature/SpaceWolf Space Wolves]]. Who do not give half a damn about what the Codex has to say.

say.
** The Space Wolves themselves have their own take on the problem, due in part to their method of recruitment (a Wolf Priest selects a badly-wounded warrior from one of Fenris' many clan wars, and the recruit is made aware that he has been chosen to make war on the Emperor's enemies for all eternity). Where other chapters only use veteran Marines in melee assault teams, Space Wolves give their newest members a sword and a boltgun andpoint them in the enemy's direction, viewing it both as good training and an opportunity to remove the weak and unlucky. The survivors can then move on to become Grey Hunters and Long Fangs (Tactical and Devastator Marine equivalents), while those whose enthusiasm for melee combat never abates can get a bike or jetpack to continue on their chosen path.


** In the ExpandedUniverse, there's [[Literature/HaloGhostsOfOnyx Kurt-051]], who does a lot of things behind the back of his superiors in order to help his Spartan-[=IIIs=], and [[Literature/HaloTheColeProtocol Gray Team]], the most unruly trio among all the Spartan-[=IIs=] who were explicitly separated from the rest for covert operations ''because'' of their tendency to play fast with the rules to complete objectives.

** In the show itself the only reason he was even allowed to accompany the Atlantis mission is because of luck, skill and the support of more alternative thinking higher-ups Elizabeth Weir and General O'Neill. He impressed O'Neill by performing a HighSpeedMissileDodge with a non-combat helicopter to escape an alien drone and then got Weir's attention by discovering he had the Ancient gene and could command their technology seemingly without effort. As Weir was a civilian diplomat rather than military commander, his rebellious streak didn't put her off (especially as it was motivated by personal loyalty) and she persuaded his superiors to let him onto her expedition since establishing a base on the other side of the galaxy required out of the box thinking type people. Still, the mission's military commander Colonel Sumner, a far stricter by-the-book officer, didn't like Sheppard for his past and made it clear he wasn't welcome. Later after Sumner was killed Sheppard became Weir's second in command so Sheppard's superiors tried to replace him. Luckily Weir stepped in to defend him and he was safe with her support, but it was still obvious many of the other military commanders disliked him.

* Colonel Jack O'Neill from ''Series/StargateSG1''. He manages to get away with it because his judgement in the field usually turns out to be correct in the long run, and the number of times he's saved the planet tends to give him some job security - plus, there's the fact that he can technically retire whenever he feels like it, having come out of retirement in the first place to lead [=SG1=]. Humorously, when real-life Air Force Chief of Staff General Ryan guest-starred AsHimself on the show, Richard Dean Anderson, who played O'Neill, asked him if he had any officers as insubordinate as O'Neill.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', the Mobile Infantry seems to be entirely run by these people and they encourage this behaviour in recruits. Fraternisation between male and female troopers is rife, discipline is incredibly lax, and the only time anybody is disciplined is Rico when he gets a squadmate killed during a [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety horribly unsafe]] live-fire exercise (and he is still shown sympathy for explaining his actions with "I wanted to win, sir!")

** Admiral Preston J. Cole was probably the biggest of all, to the point his first notable victory during the war with the Insurrection was ''because'' he made an incredible breach in military protocol by shooting a missile into the enemy vessel [[ISurrenderSuckers that was only possible because he sent a surrender and shot it into their docking tube to gut the ship.]] The top brass wasn't sure if they should give him highest honors or have him court-martialed. Afterwards, he continued to distinguish himself with unconventional strategies and tactics fighting the Insurrection and later the Covenant.

* Wedge Antilles, in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', is a major maverick. He's led Rogue Squadron into defecting (temporarily) from the New Republic itself.[[note]]Despite his extremely public resignation, one of his superiors "forgot" to file the paperwork...along with covertly providing Wedge with the equipment he needed...and thus ''retroactively'' made his actions an officially sanctioned mission.[[/note]] He was ready to leave again during ''Starfighters of Adumar'', when faced with the choice of doing what was ordered or what was right. But he and the Rogues are the best of the best, delivering the impossible, and they do get called on their behavior. Wedge created [[Literature/XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]], an entire squadron of misfits specifically organized for unconventional warfare after seeing how the fleet had become hamstrung by being forced into the role of legitimate government (see the Space section)--and, though not even thirty, found himself feeling like a tired old man when confronted with their antics and tactics.

He was an irregular in a nonprofessional insurgent army, so not unexpected.

** Miles makes a career out of creatively interpreting orders and using an heavy dose of artistic license when writing his reports, much to the chagrin of his superiors. Keeping with the tradition of this trope, he never outright lies to a commanding officer and always carries out his orders, in spirit if not in letter. [[spoiler: And when he does lie, it gets him [[RealityEnsues permanently kicked out of the service]]]].
* At the end of their initial run in the Literature/XWingSeries, the Wraiths (see above under "pilots") were transferred to the New Republic's Intelligence service. They don't become notably more by-the-book; indeed, they tend to become vastly quirkier although, in a twist, it's their ''commander'', Garik "Face" Loran, who picks up most of the weirdness. His approach to operational security is to never tell any of his subordinates ''anything'' that isn't immediately relevant to their mission, and Wraith operations carried out under his sanction include "persuade an Imperial admiral that a bomb is actually a very valuable sculpture" and "infiltrate the Imperial bunker using a fake [[BeneathSuspicion Gamorrean janitor]]". But his crowning achievement is the plot of ''Mercy Kill'', wherein he [[spoiler: suspects that his superior is actually part of a GovernmentConspiracy to bring back the Empire]] and so creates ''two'' teams of Wraiths, not telling each about the other and not telling his superiors about ''either''.
