* 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.

* Data East's Hippodrome and follow-up game Mutant Fighter (in Japan, it was Deathbrade) has barbarian warriors fighting inhuman creatures in the arena.

* 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.

* WesternAnimation/{{Fangbone}} combines this trope with KidHero, since he's only nine. Doesn't stop him from being able to take down the evil forces of [[EvilSorcerer Venomous Drool]] like a pint-sized version of Conan.

* Although ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' gives you the opportunity to play as many other things aside from this, the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dovakhiin_7544.jpg promotional art]] for the "official" Dragonborn is shown to be a male Nord with the dress and demeanor of one.
** This appears to be the general aesthetic of most of the armours in ''Skyrim'', in contrast to ''Oblivion's'' KnightInShiningArmor. Steel Armor, for instance: compare the ''[[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120719060516/elderscrolls/images/c/c4/SteelArmor.png Oblivion]]'' set to the ''[[http://www.uesp.net/wiki/File:SR-item-Steel_Armor_Male_02.jpg Skyrim]]'' set. Justified by Skyrim's local humans, [[MeaningfulName the Nords]], being a FantasyCounterpartCulture for HornyVikings.
** Barbarians were one of the character classes in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' before Skyrim. They were [[LightningBruiser lighter armoured and more mobile warriors]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout the series (until ''Skyrim'' did away with classes), Barbarians were one of the character classes. They were [[LightningBruiser lighter armoured and more mobile warriors]].
** This is a common depiction (and even ideal) of the Nords, along with HornyVikings. [[AnAxeToGrind Axes as a favored weapon]], BraidsOfBarbarism, {{Badass Beard}}s, [[FacialMarkings war paint]], [[ScreamingWarrior war cries]], PeltsOfTheBarbarian... It is all heavily present in Nord culture, which they took from their [[{{Precursors}} ancestors]], the Atmorans. Enemies of the Nords (usually elves) prefer to paint them instead as a violent and savage BarbarianTribe.

* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': Frigg. Less in terms of the culture that raised her than her crass & violent attitude.

* ''VideoGame/ShopHeroes'' features Kurul and Karal, both of whom are barbarian warriors from the plains (and who may be related, judging by the names). Kurul probably fits the archetype best, being a a grim, violent thug who's always shouting. By contrast, Karal has a much sunnier disposition than the typical barbarian hero, although she's still quite loud.
