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.

* In Creator/PoulAnderson's ''Literature/TechnicHistory'', the earlier phase of the TerranEmpire (depicted in PeopleOfTheWind) has a society where nobles are expected to justify their position by working for God and Empire. By the era of DominicFlandry, hereditary idle aristocrats dominate, and it is noted that it is harder to become a knight than a peer.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Despite the reamarkable simplicity of ork social structures ([[AsskickingEqualsAuthority the stronger you are]], [[LargeAndInCharge the bigger you get]], the more orks you lead), they have nobility of a sort: nobs, the biggest, baddest orks short of the warboss himself (the name is a loanword from nobility, but they pronounce it as "knob").

Not to be confused with [[RoyalBlood royals]], people who just hold [[KnightFever knighthoods,]] BlackBlood, AlienBlood, "Literature/{{Bluebeard}}", the freeform vulgar joke "TheAristocrats", nor the [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]] film ''Disney/TheAristocats''. Or Angels from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and Mulians from ''Anime/RahXephon'', both of which have "blue" as a blood type. ''Further'' not to be confused with the television series ''Series/BlueBloods'', although the title is an amusing play on words.
