* 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.''

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' 2002 episode "Azoth the Avenger Is a Friend of Mine". A young boy who is a fan of the comicbook hero Azoth the Avenger inadvertently brings him to life.

* Ensiferum's ''[[http://lyrics.wikia.com/Ensiferum:Wanderer Wanderer]]'' depicts a figure very reminiscent of characters like [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] (With bare hands he has taken many lives/He's had a hundred women by his side) or [[{{Manga/Berserk}} Guts]] (But when sun sets and the cold arrives/With crushing solitude in the darkness of night).

* "[[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Grognak_the_Barbarian Grognak the Barbarian]]" appears as a fictional comic book character in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and seems to be a simple {{expy}} of [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan]]. Finding Grognak comics and reading them [[IKnowMaddenKombat will increase your Melee Weapons skill in the game]].

* Played with in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'': The Man In Black is a toweringly ''huge'' man, [[LightningBruiser very strong with very high HP]], [[HeroicBuild extremely muscular]], a BarbarianLongHair, who wears only a [[ManInAKilt kilt]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene and cowl]] and wields a {{BFS}}--heck, said BFS is even called the [[ShoutOut Cimmerian]] [[ConanTheBarbarian Blade]]. However, since he is also [[spoiler:Golbez, AntiVillain of the previous game and Cecil's brother]], he is [[GeniusBruiser extremely intelligent]], [[MagicKnight highly proficient in magic]], and at heart a [[NiceGuy very good man]].

* Arguably [[BadassIsraeli Samson]], one of the [[Literature/TheBible Judges of Israel]]. Among his exploits were killing lots of enemies bare-handed, ripping apart a lion bare-handed (and then eating the honey of the bees that took up residence in the carcass of said lion), burning down enemy fields by tying torches to the tails of foxes, killing hundreds of Philistines with just the jawbone of an ass (and then dropping a Bond-style one-liner immediately afterward), picking up the gates of an enemy city and just walking off with them, and finally, [[RedemptionEqualsDeath collapsing a heathen temple, killing hundreds of Philistines along with himself as one final act of holy badassery.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Many of D&D's descendants like ''TabletopGame/ThirteenthAge'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' have their own barbarian classes, usually based on the 3.5 one, meaning that while they may hold spiritual ''beliefs'' (then again, they may not), their actual ''combat style'' is heavy on TheBerserker. Amiri, Pathfinder's iconic Barbarian, goes so far as to wield a {{BFS}} that's so heavy it can't be swung effectively unless she's in a blood rage.

* ComicBook/{{Wolfskin}} is a classic example, altough he is far more [[DarkerAndEdgier brutal and barbaric]] than the usual lot.

Added DiffLines:

* [[{{ComicBook/Birthright}} Mikey Rhodes]], who visually resembles this trope, being a [[TheBigGuy towering]], [[BadassBeard bearded]] [[{{Badass}} warrior]] [[WalkingArmory armed to the teeth]] [[{{BFS}} with some massive weapons]], with one police officer even calling him Conan at a point. In essence, [[FallenHero its a lot more complicated]].
