** Pointedly averted with ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine's'' General Martok. He was actually born a commoner and clawed his way UpThroughTheRanks by [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority methods]] [[KlingonPromotion dear]] [[{{Badass}} to the]] [[ProudWarriorRace Klingon heart]] (and this was despite being blacklisted by Kor for his low birth). Presumably his noble rank is by marriage (or merit) rather then birth.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/BloodAndHonor'': Purebloods can trace their descent from the high priests of the ancient Sith race, and Sanguis is no exception. Her storied heritage is brought up occasionally and she has a family estate, complete with servants, on the Imperial homeworld of Dromund Kaas. Several other Sith encountered over the course of the story mention being familiar with her house.

** Lampshaded by Sieglinde while trying to convince Ciel [[spoiler:to make Sebastian let up on her 'proper lady' training]] and he refuses.
--> Sieglinde: "What colour is your blood?!"
--> Ciel: "It's red."

* The Vor in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]]'', though they themselves claim they are a military caste, and not an aristocracy (which is exactly what aristocracy ''was'' in the Middle Ages). Most other people treat them like aristocrats.

* Virtually all of the major and minor characters in the {{Deryni}} works are in this class. The better ones treat members of the lowers orders (such as Revan in the ''Legends of Camber'' and ''Heirs off Camber'' and Morgan's pagan swordsmith Ferris from the story "Trial") quite well. The rest, well, see AristocratsAreEvil.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels feature the Duke of Taunton and his family and extended family, most of them titled; and his HeterosexualLifePartner HH the Nawab of Hubli; and a fair few others. Dukes, marquesses, viscounts, earls, Scots Lords of Parliament, barons, Scots lairds, Senators of the College of Justice, baronets, knights, courtesy titles including a Scots "Master"; post-nominals everywhere; even a Nawab. And Professor Lacy may have been given a mere Life Peerage, but she's a ''Lacy'' all the same. And with all that, the real [[WorkingClassHero heroes are all working-class, all the same]].

Their effectiveness is frequently inversely related to their civilization. Dark Ages nobility often features AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, and the MiddleAges nobility ''will'' feature the KnightInShiningArmor and TheTourney, but a highly refined and civilized culture will feature an inordinate number of {{Upper Class Twit}}s and OfficerAndAGentleman.

(though an OfficerAndAGentleman is also possible) if not, indeed decadent courtiers.
