A ''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:

** Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' is forced to become one in Act II, being the only one in Kirkwall that the Arishok deems worthy enough to parley with. In Act III, they mention they've occasionally been called upon in their role as Champion of Kirkwall, to "rescue" visiting foreign heads of state, from having to put up with [[KnightTemplar Knight-Commander Meredith]] for too long.

* After helping to neutralize the Parliment Hill shooter, Sargeant-At-Arms and former RCMP Chief Superintendent Kevin Vickers was appointed the Canadian Ambassador to Canada in January 2015. In May 2016, he was at a ceremony honoring British soldiers killed in the Easter Rising when they were interrupted by a protestor. Vickers grabbed the protestor and dragged him away from the ceremony to hand him over to the police. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment While this proved controversial]] [[TheIrishQuestion for obvious]] [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/UsefulNotes/TheIrishRevolution historical reasons,]] it should be noted that Vickers was a hair shy of 60 at the time, yet the protestor tried to get away when he saw the Ambassador bearing down on him.

** Ex-Admiral Breya Andreyasn functions as the United Nations of Sol's ambassador to the Fleetmind. Definitely BadAss, both for her accomplishments prior to appointment, and for some of the things she did AS ambassador.

* Arguably, the "Mediator" Job Class of ''FinalFantasyTactics''--their attacks consist of TalkingTheMonsterToDeath, and they are the only class (besides Chemists and special character Mustadio) who can wield guns. Granted, guns aren't the strongest weapons, but they're easily the most versatile, allowing the wielder to shoot anywhere in a large area around themselves.

** Case in point: in ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', Vimes is given a diplomatic mission to {{Uberwald}}. He brings along Cheery Littlebottom (an [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses openly female dwarf]]) as well as Detritus (an [[FantasticRacism unlicensed troll]]) as his "cultural attache", then introduces himself to a bunch of fundamentalist dwarves as a blackboard monitor. For reference, this is like bringing a transvestite and Mossad agent to Tehran and lighting a cigar with a flaming Koran (in fairness to Vimes, he wasn't ''aware'' of the negative connotations of being a blackboard monitor, which in any case the fundamentalist dwarves of that book don't quite agree with). In the same book Vimes solves a crime that could have plunged the region into war and kills several werewolves with his bare hands.

Of course they are intentionally [[AssInAmbassador given no diplomatic training]] because the Empire has found that smooth-talkers had a tendency to get dissected in [[http://www.rhjunior.com/QQSR/00046.html such situations]].
