* Carlos Ramirez of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is the youngest wizard to be made regional commander of the [[MagicKnight Wardens of the Council]] in history, and has the appropriate amount of [[BadAss combat prowess]] and [[TheCharmer charm]] to back it up. He loves to brag and joke about both his skills and his [[TheCasanova prowess with the ladies]]. [[spoiler:Subverted, in the sense that he's also a virgin]].

* ''Lots'' of heroic characters (possibly including the [=PCs=]) in the old [[{{Mystara}} Red Steel]] setting fit the Trope, given the setting's emphasis on swashbuckling in a fantasy equivalent of Spain.

* Alejandro in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is a villainous example. He is shown to [[{{Badass}} have many skills]], and is admired by most of the contestants until they discover his true nature. In fact, he actually throws in GratuitousSpanish whenever he is frustrated, and the fifth season gives him a Spanish leitmotif that is based on Zorro's theme.
