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

Added DiffLines:

* Daine from ''Literature/TortallUniverse'' plays with it. Though normally TheHeart and FriendToAllLivingThings, in battle she can be cool and collected. She also can hit a moving target ''in the dark''. Justified as, like her WildMagic, she gets this from her divine father.

** Ezreal is technically a mage but, like Asche, plays as a quintessential Marksman character. He uses his magic gauntlet to create enchanted arrows, similar to a [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Quincy]], which is appropriate, considering his original character design was a carbon copy of Bleach's Uryu Ishida.

* As with the TV show example below, there are a few of these in ASongOfIceAndFire: most notably [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Anguy the Archer]] who wins the champion's purse in the Tourney of the Hand for archery and proves that it was no fluke during his later adventures with the Brotherood Without Banners. He's not alone, though, as Theon Greyjoy is also a crack shot - another thing that separates him from his former kin in the Iron Islands, as they have far too much TestosteronePoisoning to ever be proud of someone who kills at range.

The Archer is a skilled bowman. They're generally independent and used to working alone. This tends to make them practical, a little haughty or arrogant and not the best at following orders especially from those they don't respect. The archer is generally stealthy and graceful and tends to fight at a distance. As a result, [[LongRangeFighter they're often portrayed as vulnerable up close]] unless they [[BowAndSwordInAccord switch to a different weapon for close combat]].

* The second Comics/GreenArrow and the second Speedy (Mia Dearden) in Franchise/TheDCU are both calm and level-headed (their predecessors, Oliver Queen and Roy Harper being more of charming rogues).

* Princess Anghara aka Indigo, from ''Literature/{{Indigo}}'' specializes in the crossbow and conforms to the arrogance (in her past as a princess), slender build and isolation (her only true companion is her wolf and she is set apart from others by being cursed with immortality, until she defeats all the demons she released).
