* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' has Sister Schach, a kindly nun and battle-ready knight of the Belkan Saint Church. ** And after the post-[=StrikerS=] TimeSkip, [[spoiler: Sein, Otto, and Deed of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers Cyborgs]]]] have joined the Belkan Saint Church's ranks. There is also [[spoiler:Vivio]], [[CloneJesus literal Saint King of that church]], though she hates being called by her rank... And she IS called so. On regular basis. ** This trope is kind of a given when you consider the fact that the church's [[CrystalDragonJesus Jesus analog]] is considered to have been [[WorldsBestWarrior the strongest fighter to ever live]].

* Podcast/DiceFunk: Anne sees herself as this to the church of Avandra, although it is unclear if she is actually carrying out the will of the faith, or just an overly eager and violent.

* ''LaPucelle'' is about a squad of monster hunters belonging to a church whose (sorta secret) purpose is destroying demons.

* ''RuneScape'': Priest robes (prayer bonus), best mace you can find (prayer bonus), hunt giants/dragons (their bones give more prayer xp). You can take a lot less damage (Protect from x prayers) while dealing a lot more damage (Fortify Strength/Attack/etc.) And, the Monks of Zamorak, too.

* {{Sikhism}} is famous for this aspect. They express it in a more publicly accepted fashion then some groups, through such means as participation in regular military units and the carrying of symbolic weapons. Defense of the righteous is fairly central to the faith of Sikhism, which is understandable considering their history of being surrounded by militant Islamic factions and equally militant Hindus. They represent only about 2% at most of the Indian population yet make up nearly 15% of the army (and 20% of officers). Indian UN peacekeepers are usually called blue turbans due to the high probability they're Sikh soldiers (most male Sikhs do not cut their hair and keep it in a turban).

Added namespaces.
* The ''{{Talislanta}}'' RPG allows players to become (among other things) any one of several types of intolerant cleric. Although few have any spellcasting abilities, these classes are interesting in that they are the only characters that come with the "torture" skill. * The parody RPG ''MachoWomenWithGuns'' has only three character classes: Bimbos, Succubi, and Combat Nuns. I'm sorry, "Sisters of Our Lady of Harley Davidson". Needless to say, that game is made of raw [[RuleOfCool Awesome]]. * The ''IronKingdoms'' setting has a whole nation of these, called the Protectorate of Menoth.

* The ''CyberEurope'' expansion to Iron Crown's ''CyberSpace'' RPG introduces some hotshot special forces of the Vatican, such as the ''Apostolic Carabiniers'' SWAT unit and a Mission-Impossible-ish intelligence service, managed by Jesuits. These organizations are consistently portrayed as (reasonably) good guys, which is surprising since the authors are all Swedes.

* Within ''TheDarkEye,'' there are numerous churches that fit this trope. The church of [[WarGod Rondra]](goddess of honorable battle), the church of her son [[WarGod Kor]](god of war, bloodshed and mercanaries) are at the forefront, but most churches have an order or two, that is more militant than the rest of the church.
