** As with many RPGs, it's possible to look like this is in effect if Shepard brings along two of their female companions who, during cutscenes and non-combat, hang out behind and slightly to each side of Shepard, like stereotypical bodyguards.

* In the Literature/BelisariusSeries, after she [[spoiler: marries Kungas, Irene]] is approached by assorted women inspired by her and insist on becoming her "Sarmatian Guard". Although the men don't take this seriously, she does and insist they be trained instead of merely being a ceremonial troop. [[spoiler: Kungas]] later uses them as the assault element to foil an assassination attempt. Although they suffer casualties taking down the assassins, they take pride in this because they've proven they're warriors and they ''will'' be taken seriously.

* Juliet Butler from ''ArtemisFowl'' is somewhat of a subversion. Though she's been trained for most of her life as a bodyguard, it's because she's a Butler, and that's what they do. When Artemis keeps her around for missions, it's solely because she's well trained and already knows about TheMasquerade. While an excellent fighter, she's too impulsive to be a good bodyguard and in the later books starts a career in wrestling.
