** The Raven Guard are sometimes stylised as space native Americans, ones that have PoweredArmour and mandatory 30mm gyrojet rifle and also badass stealth tactics. The Rainbow Warriors are also often {{Fanon}}ically given an Aztec/Inca theme, [[GeniusBonus which is fitting as]] the Rainbow Warrior is an American folklore figure, a powerful being who defends life.

** The page quote comes from ''Literature/TurnCoat'', where he fights a Skinwalker, a kind of Native American evil spirit that can change form and enjoys tormenting its victims. Previously, a Skinwalker proved to be such a threat it had to be lured into a nuclear testing facility to be destroyed. The one serving as the antagonist in the book, known as Shagnasty, curbstomps vampires and gives the experienced wizard protagonist a nosebleed just being near him. Injun Joe kicked Shagnasty's ass so hard that the abomination ''ran in fear from him''.

** His brother John, a.k.a. Thunderbird, tried to be this trope as one of the early ComicBook/XMen, but his extreme temper (he was the resident hothead of a team that included ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'') led to him dying on his second mission.

But what a death: [[SenselessSacrifice punching out a fighter jet]]. ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Mid-flight]]''. One of the few comic book deaths that's actually stuck.

* Wrestling/MickieJames. (Powhatan from Virginia).
* Wrestling/{{Chief Wahoo McDaniel}}
* Wrestling/{{Tatanka}}
* Navajo Warrior
* Apache Bull Ramos
* The Brisco Brothers, Jack and Gerald. (This was not reflected in their wrestling characters, but the two are Cherokee descendants from Blackwell)

to:

* Wrestling/MickieJames. (Powhatan Apache Bull Ramos, one of the first of this role to be a {{heel}}, at his own insistence, as wrestling promoters not only thought his lack of charisma made baby{{face}} a better fit but pushing someone from Virginia).
a group whose slaughter was basically publicly approved as a heel was believed to be dangerous, but Bull's sense of timing in regards to working the crowd made it work.
* Wrestling/{{Chief Wahoo McDaniel}}
* Wrestling/{{Tatanka}}
* Navajo Warrior
* Apache Bull Ramos
McDaniel}}, a football player who began wrestling in the off seasons around the same time Ernie Ladd did but despite the name, Wahoo didn't come from the "red man" sports mascot. It had been in the chief's family long before he started playing sports.
* The Brisco Brothers, Jack and Gerald. (This was not reflected in their wrestling characters, gimmicks beyond a feud with the {{cowboy}} Funks, but the two are Cherokee descendants from Blackwell)Blackwell)
* Wrestling/{{Tatanka}}, a Lumbee. The infamous lack of respect his tribe gets from the government once lead to an angle where he became a vengeful warrior against the wrestling officials he thought were showing him the same disrespect. This was supposed to be a heel gimmick but was so badass the fans took his side.
* Navajo Warrior, who paints his face underneath his racoon skin hat. Outside of Arizona he's best known for tag team title runs with Shooting Wolf and Ghost Walker as "Native Blood".
* Florida Championship Wrestling had Wrestling/MickieJames defend their ladies title belt on a Seminole reservation, though one heel challenger(Lexie Fyfe) pointed out James was from a completely different tribe (Powhatan from Virginia) and unsuccessfully tried to convince the fans not to cheer for her.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', as seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s ''Bloodmoon'' expansion and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''[='s=] ''Dragonborn'' DLC, the NobleSavage Skaal people of the [[GrimUpNorth frozen, inhospitable]] island of Solstheim are quite badass. Their [[CultureChopSuey culture is a blend]] of the Nord's HornyVikings and that of various Native American and Inuit tribes. While every other race who has attempted to settle Solstheim throughout history has struggled, the InHarmonyWithNature Skaal flourish there despite the cold and Solstheim's many dangerous beasts.

* Mani from ''Film/BrotherhoodOfTheWolf'', complete with martial arts.
* Gooch, a huge ex-con just released from prison at the beginning of ''Film/DanceMeOutside'', plays up to this trope.



* Hunter from ''Film/GingerSnapsBackTheBeginning''.
* The title character in ''Film/NavajoJoe'' has this, being proficient in firearms and melee weapons and single-handedly whittling down a rival's gang.



* Aila, from ''RhymesForYoungGhouls'', is a less racist or stereotypical example of this trope, though she's most certainly both First Nations and extremely badass.
