* S'taass in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' is a soft-spoken and highly intelligent man who represents the Klingon Empire's interests in the Deep Space 9 area with great expertise. He's also a Gorn, which means he's an eight-foot-tall walking lizard fully capable of tearing Jem'Hadar to pieces with his teeth and claws, as he demonstrates when a Dominion fleet attacks Deep Space 9 in "Second Wave".

* The first Japanese diplomatic missions to Europe -- sent under the Tokugawa Shogunate -- were composed almost entirely of Nobles and Samurai. Likewise many of the first permanent ambassadors dispatched but the [[ImperialJapan post-Meiji-revolution Empire of Japan]] were (former) Nobles and Samurai, too. Since the end of the Sengoku period, both classes, although still carrying swords and with a strong martial bent, had been broken to bureaucratic tasks by the cautious shoguns, and the Meiji revolution would eliminate their few remaining prerogatives.

They may be a HiddenBadass or someone that MinoredInAsskicking. A GuileHero who outfoxes red tape is also possible. Contrast AssInAmbassador.

May overlap with AssInAmbassador, if their ability enables them to think they can walk over the other party.

* Tu'i Taurau Tangaroa of ''Literature/Birthright2017'' is responsibile for negotiating a trade deal between his homeland and the country of Vikaasthan. He's also fast to respond when confronted with danger, and more than willing to fistfight a dragon.

** Secondly and more to the point, he was appallingly bad at his job. The paltry time he did spend as Ambassador to Britain shows a man who couldn't stand to leave his beloved Fuhrer and his offices back in Britain regularly sent telegrams demanding to know why he took so much leave from his post. It made any kind of day to day diplomacy or work impossible. On top of this, he believed that Edward the Eigth had the 'real' power in the United Kingdom and didn't seem to think much of Parliament or the British people.
** Third, is the sheer number of gaffes attributable to him in his capacity as ambassador:
** He almost knocked King George VI off his feet by giving him a Nazi salute without warning.
** He always ordered the best tailors in town for his suits, only to send them away after hours waiting for him, leading to said tailors spreading the word about how insufferable he was.
** He misread and/or misled Hitler as to the state of Anglo-German relations, and believed there was a shadowy underground group of upper-class Englishmen who made the real power moves of the empire. It is worth noting that the 'New Germany' ''was'' admired covertly by the British upper classes, but Ribbentrop took this to mean they were behind Germany and their plans wholeheartedly, which they were certainly not. He was more shocked than anyone, Hitler included, when Britain declared war in September 1939.
** His endless monologues about Hitler and his demeaning, confrontational style of negotiation in just about every meeting also made him very hard to like and alienated all his counterparts and colleagues to the point where even Hitler would later actively avoid him.

** Extends explicitly into ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' where the Pathfinder's job is to see to the safety of their crews, establish colony sites, ''and'' be the diplomatic representative of the Milky Way settlers in any negotiations with any local sentient life. Too bad the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Kett]] haven't a whit of interest in diplomacy.

An '''Ambadassador''' is a character whose role is that of a diplomat or negotiator. But when the [[PeaceConference peace talks]] fail they advance their agenda with violence. They will have skills in AggressiveNegotiations and experience with BloodOnTheDebateFloor. Any enemy leader or officer who thinks he can ShootTheMessenger will soon learn why this is a bad idea. This is a diplomat who does not need a diplomat's traditional immunity.

A character whose primary role is some sort of ambassador/diplomat, but when the [[PeaceConference peace talks]] fail they advance their agenda with violence.

This is a person skilled at AggressiveNegotiations and has experience with BloodOnTheDebateFloor. Any enemy leader or officer who thinks he can ShootTheMessenger will soon learn why this is a bad idea. In essence, this is a diplomat who does not need a diplomat's traditional immunity.

* Creator/MarvelComics character Monet St. Croix (code name "M") is the daughter of an ambassador, but is also very adept at ass-kicking. Being a NighInvulnerable FlyingBrick helps quite a bit.
* Franchise/WonderWoman is technically an inverted example, as her Badass work as a superhero is her primary focus, with her work as an ambassador to "Man's world" as a secondary but ([[DependingOnTheWriter usually]]) still important focus.
* An unnamed, Caucasian Ambadassador appears as a OneSceneWonder in the [[FrancoBelgianComics Franco-Belgian comic book]] ''ComicBook/BenoitBrisefer''. Benoit confronts the villainous Mrs. Daemonia, who tries to get away by taking the Ambassador hostage with a knife to his throat, but:
