* Franchise/ArchieComics character The Shield, created fourteen months before Captain America, brought back for a while by Creator/DCComics, and [[BadassGrandpa who is now the mentor]] to the ''Comicbook/NewCrusaders''. He is also a LegacyCharacter. The modern day version of the character is a woman.

** And ''Superman: True Brit'', in which he is raised by an incredibly bland and none too bright British family; he's still a defender of Truth, Justice, and the British Way, but is kind of a nitwit.

** Another evil example with Captain Nazi, a [[{{Shazam}} Marvel Family]] villain. His Golden Age version (originally created by Fawcett Comics) was a Nazi given powers by a SuperSerum; Comicbook/PostCrisis he was a neo-Nazi, though a later line about him never dying as long as Nazism exists may have been meant to RetCon him into some kind of AnthropomorphicPersonification.

* All Might from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' looks like the result of ComicBook/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica performing the FusionDance: He's a [[HeroicBuild tall, muscular]] [[PhenotypeStereotype blonde man with blue eyes]] who wears a hero costume that's primarily red, white, and blue, is TheCape through and through, and his [[CallingYourAttacks special attacks]] are all named for the 50 States (i.e. "Texas Smash")...and he's also 100% Japanese (real name: Toshinori Yagi). He's just '''really''' fond of America.

No matter how near the cynical end of SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism the major premise is, he will be idealistic. In the FiveManBand he is TheHero, on a SuperTeam or any other kind of [[TheSquad super group]] he will be TheCaptain. He can be very [[GoodIsNotNice harsh and strict]] - TheCowl may not get along with him. The AntiHero should not expect to see him among his fans. If you are a NinetiesAntiHero, better stay the hell away from him if you don't want to get your butt kicked. On the other hand, he is respectful of true patriots, no matter what country they serve - he will quickly recognize that their patriotism is akin to his own. The same goes with dissenters with his government's policies and/or his nation's current public sentiments, if their ultimate principles are in keeping with the larger ideals he values. For instance, if a historical 1960s American Captain Patriotic heard growls accusing MartinLutherKingJr of being a traitor simply because he is making the nation look bad by opposing its injustice, he'd be first to answer, "No, he is a true American patriot!"

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Varrick creates propaganda films in order to compel Republic City to go to war with the Northern Water Tribe. These "movers" star Nuktuk, an overly buff Water Tribe member who fits this trope.

* ''ComicBook/TheBoys'' has at least two: the Homelander and Soldier Boy, ersazten of Superman and Captain America respectively. Being super"heroes" in a Creator/GarthEnnis comic, the first is naturally a hedonistic mass-murderer [[spoiler:gaslit into insanity by his secret clone]], and the second an easily-manipulated idiot who yells out a random state every time he ShieldBashes someone. [[spoiler:When Billy kills him, he makes his contempt for claiming to be a veteran (as a LegacyCharacter, the first one wasn't much smarter and got killed during his first deployment) clear, saying it's an insult to the dead soldiers of WW2]].

* In ''ComicBook/RisingStars'', corporate superhero [[CaptainGeographic Flagg]] (who later changes his name to Patriot), is working on his reputation as one. However, the real Captain Patriotic in this universe is officer Matthew Bright. Bright wanted to serve America and its people so much he joined the police force. He has to hide his powers, because Specials cannot be members of any force. And when the government found out and was trying to kick him out, his fellow police officers protested so much, they had to give up and try to use a LegalLoophole to forbid him from wearing a police uniform and badge, thus making it impossible for him to work. They underestimated his friends from the Police Department, who just brought an uniform and badge designed only for him.
