* DukeNukem is a Barbarian Hero with guns. Think about it for a second: Muscles like a Belgian Blue, irresistible to the ladies, armed to the teeth, constantly fighting with monsters, some of whom are clear cut [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] and finally he is rich, famous and powerfull. The only thing that sperarates him from the traditional Barbarian is that he did not go from rags to riches. Duke was pretty much born into being the most succesfull man ever.

* "Barbarian" was a playable class in ''UltimaIII: Exodus''. In a subversion of the trope, it was actually the worst character to play the game with, since the game system was very reliant on magic. As in an entire party of {{Squishy Wizard}}s would get you a lot further than one of Barbarians. That said, an all-Barbarian party is one challenge for the game.
* Rau from ''The Mark of Kri'' and ''RiseOfTheKasai'' is basically Polynesian Conan (the stereotype, not the original). He's even directly addressed as "Barbarian" instead of his name sometimes.

* Korgoth from ''KorgothOfBarbaria'' is a deadpan parody of the trope, specifically parodying Thundarr and Conan.

** And of course, Sigmar, chieftain of the Unberogen tribe. Got his famous warhammer Ghal Maraz as a teenager by saving the Dwarf king's life from marauding Orcs, united all the other human tribes of the Reik and led them to decisively crush a huge Orc horde at the Battle of Blackfire Pass in the ultimate triumph of his strength and his ideals of human unity. Sigmar marched back to Reikdorf, was crowned Emperor, ruled for five years (leading the Empire to victory against demon-worshipping Vikings, mangy Nazi rat-people and the undead servants of Nagash) and then went east to fight Chaos and was never seen again. Afterwards the people of the Empire started worshipping him as a god (he did in fact ascend to godhood when he went east as revealed in ''The End Times''). Basically if you combined Conan, Charlemagne and Thor.

* ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' is a strange variation. In ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' He-Man spends half the time as a Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian type hero and the other half in his secret identity as Prince Adam, who's closer to KingArthur than to this trope. He switches back and forth with a [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] type transformation, "ByThePowerOfGrayskull", and fights alongside other Barbarian heroes in the CyberPunk Barbarian Arthurian World that is Eternia. However, his sister, [[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]], has basically no trace of this trope. Claims that He-Man was based the Conan movie are false.

Overlaps with ProudWarriorRaceGuy, NobleSavage, and TheBerserker. Often fond of being InHarmsWay. Females who fit this Trope are often of the NubileSavage type.

* Aside from being a villain, Raven of ''Literature/SnowCrash'' is essentially one of these transplanted into a {{Cyberpunk}} setting, with [[{{Badass}} devastating]] [[TheDreaded results]]. He manages to make primitive weapons like his beloved glass knives effective even in the cyberpunk era through sheer skill and toughness, and is utterly contemptuous of Western civilization and all it represents.

* Tur'geis and Die'tra Am'saag Sarghress are good Conan-like examples of this trope from ''{{Webcomics/Drowtales}},'' save for not being main characters. Bonus points from originally being from Relic Hunters, a very SwordsAndSorcery based side-comic/RPG on the Drowtales site.

* Ill Bill, Music/{{Immortal Technique}} and [[{{Sepultura}} Max Cavalera]] have a song called "War Is My Destiny" which is Hip-Hop's answer to this trope. And it is ''EPIC.''
