Additionally the character has inspired an entire genre of imitators, ranging from silly ''ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer'' to more serious fare like ''Comicbook/RedSonja'' (a female Barbarian Hero). In some ways Conan is an UnbuiltTrope. At least the original Howard version who only rarely wore a loincloth (usually to cast off excess weight when he planned to climb something) and was substantially more [[GeniusBruiser intelligent and articulate]] than the stereotype.

* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' parodies the trope with [[RatedMForManly Kronar the Barbarian]], a warrior from an all-male tribe who is essentially a ManlyGay version of Conan. When not sleeping with other manly men, he is usually seen in an UnstoppableRage. He also has a [[MrSeahorse daughter]] who is apparently as much of a badass as he is, given that she was [[LittleMissBadass killing wolves with her bare hands a few hours after birth]].

* Italian company Crian Soft has ''Age of Barbarian'', a game that's a tribute to '80s Barbarian and Sword & Sorcery movies. Fittingly they have a Conan expy, Rahaan and a Frank Frazetta-style girl, Sheyna.

* As a tribute to '70s Sword & Sorcery pulp fantasy, White Whale games has the surrealistic ''God of Blades''. In this game that looks like a Roger Dean album cover, you control the resurrected alien barbarian "The Nameless King" as he fights enemies from the void that invaded his world.

* Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick take the barbarian hero to space, playing out many of the classic tropes as Riddick rises from a childhood on a DeathWorld PenalColony to [[TheDreaded Dreaded]] criminal, mercenary, and conqueror.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' also features Grognak. This time, though, you can actually find a Grognak-themed costume and [[AnAxeToGrind battle axe]], letting you be a BarbarianHero in the wasteland.
