* While neither are shown actually using bows and arrows onscreen, Revali and Teba still fit the attributes of this in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. They're both slender [[BirdPeople Rito]] men who are skilled in archery, prefer to [[IWorkAlone work alone]] (Revali because of his narcissism, Teba because he's simply stubborn), and are initially disdainful of [[TheHero Link]].

* Subverted and played straight in {{''Literature/Wander''}}. Wander is stoic and standoffish and prefers to use a crossbow, whereas the much friendlier and more personable Dagger's weapon of choice is a hunting bow. However, they both use guns when in active combat situations where stealth isn't necessary.

* There are a lot of ranged characters in ''SuikodenIII'' but [[{{OurElvesAreDifferent}} Roland]] and [[{{AutomaticCrossbows}} Jacques]] fit the trope to a tee. Both start with a rune that allows for a powerful ranged attack and both are deadly marksmen who keep themselves to themselves and say very little.
* Ashe from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is deadly with her bow, and has a serene and calm disposition. She can even launch a hugeass arrow that travels all the way to the edge of the arena and her play style, as a Marksman, is more about staying behind the lines and pelting her enemies with frozen arrows.

* Lara Croft in the reboot of [[VideoGame/TombRaider2013 Tomb Raider]] primarily uses a bow, as opposed to her predecessor who preferred Guns Akimbo.
* Just like in its [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight origin series]], VideoGame/FateEXTRA also has Servants of the Archer class. One of them is playable and is exactly like Stay Night's Archer ( [[spoiler: EMIYA]] ) but has a different backstory. And the enemy Archer, who plays this trope straight, isn't just any Archer, he's the [[spoiler: [[Myht/RobinHood original Archer]].]] They have [[DeadpanSnarker something]] in common though.
