*''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': Aguilar uses a bow and arrow during his and Maria's escape from the Templars. Callum naturally acquires Aguilar's bow skills through the Bleeding Effect and makes full use of them [[spoiler:during the breakout after acquiring Connor's bow]]. Both of them are suitably coolheaded and focused as per the trope.

* Ironically, some of the heroic spirits summoned to the Archer class in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' are not archers in traditional sense. The most iconic Archers [[spoiler:EMIYA]] and Gilgamesh are considered as Archers due to their abilities to spam weapons out of nowhere. Though, the former can use a bow if he wants, he prefers DualWielding with swords. However, the personality is in full effect, to the point that the signature skill of the Archer class is Independent Action.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and its spinoffs, Servants summoned under the Archer class have [[LongRangeFighter strong ranged weapons]] and the "Independent Action" ability, making them somewhat difficult to control but allowing them to survive for long periods without {{Mana}}. However, [[SquareRaceRoundClass neither of the most iconic Archers in the series are remotely typical members of their class]]. The Archer of the Fifth Holy Grail War (aka [[spoiler:EMIYA]]) is a DualWielding MasterSwordsman who approaches problems in [[ColdSniper a very detached and analytical fashion]], and [[BowAndSwordInAccord uses a bow as a backup weapon]] but mainly to shoot exploding swords instead of arrows. Gilgamesh, meanwhile, lets his PowersDoTheFighting - his "ranged weapons" consist of simply opening the door of his treasure vault and sitting back as enemies are mowed down by a StormOfBlades, and his extremely high rank in Independent Action comes from [[ItsAllAboutMe his incredible arrogance]].

*Minor character Nyvan, the bowman who (unknowingly) tries to kill George ([[VoluntaryShapeshifting George is a peregrine falcon at the time]]) and later tries to ambush John and Ringo while they're hiding near the jump gate in Boidan Valley. Although he never gets any dialogue of his own, [[InformedAbility he's quite the talkative ignoramus]] when he's not actually stalking anything, according to George, Theecat, and Chana (his cousin).

** Ramsay Snow is shown to be this in "Walk of Punishment", when he quickly shoots all of the guards about to rape Theon. His hunting partner Myranda is also shown to be very competent with a bow in "The Lion and the Rose." In "Battle of the Bastards," the only weapon Ramsay uses is his bow.
** Meera Reed wields a bow and knives instead of her trident from the books.

* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' gives us Kivan, an elven ranger. He's so [[{{TheStoic}} stoic]] and [[{{BadAss}} badass]] that ''RobPaulsen'', his VA, even does a ''Film/DirtyHarry'' impression when delivering Kivan's lines.

** [[WarriorPrince Prince Takumi of Hoshido]] from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fire Emblem Fates]]'' is also very skilled at strategy and noted to be quite smart outside of it as well. He also takes the longest out of the royals to warm up to the player character (should they not outright betray him and his family that is..) and is quite distrustful and cynical in general. [[SugarAndIcePersonality He can be very sweet to the few people who have earned his trust though]], and secretly wishes he could be more sociable.
