* Doc Holiday in ''Film/{{Tombstone}}'' as portrayed by Val Kilmer. He speaks Latin, wears a spiffy purple vest, and shoots a double barrel sawed off. And he enjoys Frederic ''fucking'' Chopin.

* Captain Jonathan Flint of the ''Literature/BlackSun''. He enjoys a good glass of wine as he does rum, can quote ancient literature (up to and including the King James Bible) from memory, holds a collection of valuable artworks (which he later uses to decorate his spaces aboard the ''Black Sun'') and retains a preference to classical media (basically anything from the First Age of Terra). The latter especially applies to his choice of music; when he isn't out captaining the ''Black Sun'' or slaughtering mooks wholesale, he can be found in his quarters listening to songs from certain [[Music/RollingStones long]] [[Music/{{Sting}} lost]] [[Music/{{Metallica}} and]] [[Music/{{Journey}} "forgotten"]] [[Music/GordonLightfoot artists]].

* UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson, of course, spoke six languages, wrote his own translation of the Bible, and filled his works with references to ancient philosophy and poets. He was even familiar with the works of Creator/{{Confucius}}.

Just because he enjoys ''Theatre/LaBoheme'' and can tell the difference between bottles of 1938 and 1941 Moët et Chandon from the [[strike:taste]] sound of it being poured doesn't mean [[GrievousBottleyHarm he won't beat you to death with them]]. Get on his bad side and you will live to regret it if you are lucky. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment (If you're unlucky, you won't live at all.)]] In either case, [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen He will fight like a gentleman]][[note]]Meaning that he follows the code of OldSchoolChivalry, issues a proper challenge to duel, and allows you to properly prepare yourself before beating you senseless with a table leg[[/note]].

** Hawke from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has an expansive library in their estate, maintains a personal diary and is shown to be perfectly capable of dealing with the aristocracy of Kirkwall. In their spare time, they regularly battle Blood Mages, slay High Dragons, and end a city-wide invasion by taking down the Qunari Leader in honourable single-combat. In ''Legacy'' they even defeat [[spoiler: an Ancient Tevinter Magister who was one of the first Darkspawn]].

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has allows the Inquisitor to become one of these increasingly throughout the game. Every time the Inquisition itself levels up in influence, the player can select a perk; four of these are Knowledge perks which increase the character's understanding of politics, magic, history, and underworld activity. Taking these opens up additional dialogue options, as well as increasing the amount of XP which can be earned by finding codex entries in the game. On top of that, there are several in your main party:

** Among the advisers is Cullen, who plays chess, enjoys music, sings beautifully (though he's only heard briefly), recites the Chant of Light from memory with great reverence, and knows a great deal about military and political history. He's also the commander of the Inquisition's forces and deeply respected by the officers who serve under him.



** Thane Krios. Can kill anything with his bare hands, is a galaxy-class assassin ''and'' a deeply philosphical and religious man, praying before and after his missions and casually quoting Thomas Hobbes at one point during a conversation with Shepard about the fate of his homeworld.

* Franchise/ProfessorLayton is a tea-loving gentleman in every regard, as clearly evidenced by the fanciness of his top hat. He has also shown off his extensive fencing skill to the villains of both the [[ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox second game]] and [[Anime/ProfessorLaytonAndTheEternalDiva the movie]], the latter case being handicapped by fighting with a pole he found against a real sword. His greatest display of badassery was arguably ramping the Laytonmobile (basically just a car with a higher roof for the all-important hat) onto the deck of a giant war-machine in UnwoundFuture [[PapaWolf to get his adopted child back]].
