** Ser Barristan Selmy might be the best example of all. In the first season, Ned states that he would be dead had they ever met in single combat during Robert's Rebellion. When he is discharged from the Kingsguard by Joffrey, he challenges the remaining other knights to dual him at once, confidently saying he would kill them all with ease. [[DeerInTheHeadlights None of them move even a muscle]]. Finally shown in [[spoiler:his last-stand before death]] as he cuts down about 20 Sons of the Harpy by himself while completely surrounded.

** Ser Barristan Selmy might be the best example of all. He is regarded by both viewers and characters as the most Badass person in the series. And that's saying something. Just over sixty-years-old, snowy haired, and has served three separate kings, but he is still considered a complete badass and is treated with reverence by anyone with sense. In the first season, Ned states that he would be dead had they ever met in single combat during Robert's Rebellion. When he is discharged from the Kingsguard by Joffrey, he pointedly challenges the remaining other Kingsguard knights to dual him at once, confidently saying he would kill them all with ease. [[DeerInTheHeadlights None of them move even a muscle]]. He's of the old order, when skill and valor were true hallmarks of a knight. Finally shown in [[spoiler:his last-stand before death]] as he cuts down about 20 ''eight'' Sons of the Harpy in a matter of seconds by himself while completely surrounded.surrounded before they can give him a challenge.

** Jorah Mormont is middle-aged, but his weary appearance and being surrounded by much younger companions makes him come off as this, with Tyrion describing Jorah as "a bit long in the tooth, a bit withered, been in the sun too long". Jorah is a fearsome opponent, being a CombatPragmatist with a highborn's trained skill as a duelist. His duel with Qotho, Drogo's bloodrider, has him overcome his opponent's superior speed and agility by trapping his arakh in his cuirass with one hand and cleaving his head open with his free hand. He also defeats several hardened pit-fighters in the lower arena, all with the flat of his blade, his fists and improvised weapons to impress Daenerys.

* ''MidsomerMurders'' episode "Sins of Commission" has a female version, [[spoiler:Camilla Crofton. She killed them all. In self-defence, as they were trying to off her.]] It's quite possibly one of the most awesome "how they did it" flashback sequences ever.

His EstablishingCharacterMoment has him skinning a stag he just hunted, showing him as quite fit and healthy for his age. The blood splatter on his face during Blackwater also shows that he fought alongside his men.

** The Greatjon might be in his older years, but that just means he's got more kills than most. His reaction to his hand being bitten off by the Grey Wind, to laugh it off and declare Robb's meat is BLOODY TOUGH!
