* Phase of the ''WhateleyUniverse''. Raised from an infant in the wealthiest family on earth, he's intelligent, urbane, well-read, and loves opera and classical music. He's a gourmet, and a brilliant businessman. This makes him utterly unprepared to be a high school girl in a SuperheroSchool.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'' (particularly in the prequels) Obi-Wan Kenobi is always reserved, impeccably polite and a fine diplomat who believes that resorting to blasters to win a fight is incredibly crude, being the trope namer for [[ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge]]. He is ''also'' the man who defeated each of General Grievous, Darth Maul and Anakin Skywalker in a personal duel.

* 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]].

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]].
