* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chandragupta_Maurya Chandragupta Maurya]], founder of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurya_Empire Maurya Empire]] that dominated ancient India between c. 322 and 185 BCE. Website/BadassOfTheWeek put it the best:
-->'''Ben Thompson:''' What makes Chandragupta totally awesome is that he was totally paranoid out of his mind. He built a huge palace with hundreds of beds and he never slept in the same place twice. He had food testers taste everything he ate and he created the first ever secret police to defend him from assassination. The best part about it though is that he had an entourage of seven hundred female bodyguards that followed him everywhere he went. He said that he trusted females more to defend him and so he compiled his unit from the best Greek and Indian women he could find. That's just freaking awesome. If I was King I would do the same thing.

* The universe should consider itself lucky that ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' is a romantic comedy. To wit, as of the most recent issue of Darkness, Rito has gained the unwavering allegiance of ''three'' shape-shifting living weapons, all of whom are experts in infiltration and assassination, especially Nemesis [[ParanoiaFuel who can hide in other people's bodies,]] the three Deviluke sisters, each of whom has unique ability (Lala has super-strenght and is a TeenGenius, Momo can control the plants and Nana the animals), Rin, who is a MasterSwordsman and Kyoko that has fire-power. The other girls are normal humans, expect Run, with no particular ability.
* [[MagneticHero 1st Lt. Youji Itami]] of ''LightNovel/{{GATE}}'' in the course of the story of being thrust into a [[AlternateUniverse magical parallel world]], managed to collect a semi-UnwantedHarem consisting of a 961-years-old[[note]]Though [[Really700YearsOld looking 13.]][[/note]] [[PhysicalGod Demi-Goddess and Apostle]] of the God of Death, a 169-years-old [[ArcherArchetype elven archer]] (who considers him a [[PromotionToParent replacement of her deceased father]])[[note]]Despite her age, her attitude and behavior is [[ImmortalImmaturity pretty much of a 16-years-old girl]].[[/note]], a 300-something years old Dark Elf warrior who is technically now [[HappinessInSlavery his slave for the favor he did to her tribe]], a-a-and a [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers 15-years-old human magician]], who, on the other hand, is arguably the most dangerous on the bunch due to being [[SmartGirl smartest of them by far]]. And that's not mentioning his 28-years old former wife back in Japan who's still pretty much into him. And [[HaremSeeker approves of all aforementioned with gusto]].

Because this is a more action-oriented subgenre, Battle Harems are less likely to be focused on romance, but still provide plenty of {{fanservice}}. Often this appears in the form of a SupportingHarem.
