* ''Theatre/TheWarriorsAtHelgeland'' by Creator/{{Henrik Ibsen}} has Ørnulf from the fjords, a {{cool old guy}} and {{warrior poet}}, an old warrior who is so incredibly awesome that people in Norway named their sons after him. He assails the biggest champion of the age with a spear, knowing him well enough to know when to back off, gets an honorable flesh wound from him and chants a poem about it on the spot. Later, he loses all his sons in combat, and the youngest of them because of a misunderstanding, but is {{genre savvy}} enough to let the killer live, ''because that man is a trusted friend''. Upon buring all his sons, he makes an elegic poem about them, stating that they ended well, and moves on to help the man who killed the youngest of them.
