* ''Franchise/DragonAge'' uses ser in a similar fashion to ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' (a formal title for knights as well as a respectful form of address) - a major inspiration on the franchise - albeit in ''Dragon Age'' its gender neutral. It appears to be used by several different kingdoms. ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' introduces another gender-neutral honorificL "serah", which ''isn't'' also a title like ser, and appears to be localized to the Free Marches region of Thedas.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', "Ser" is a gender-neutral title for a Ferelden knight. At one point in the game a servant addresses The Warden as "ser", so it may also be a general term of respect.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', ''Serah'' is used for addressing someone of equal or lower status in the Free Marches. ''Messere'' is the proper way to address someone of higher status.

* Priests should generally be called ''Father'', or (rarely) ''Monsignor'' (if they have a ''Prefect of Honor'', ''Confessor to His Holiness'', or ''Protonotary Apostolic'' designation).
* Bishops and Archbishops can be called ''Your Excellency'' (or ''Your Grace'' if you like British terms), but a lot of bishops forgo the honor.
* Patriarchs and Major-Archbishops, such as those of Jerusalem, Galicia, Lisbon, and Venice, are addressed with ''Your Beatitude'' regardless of whether they are Cardinal-Patriarchs/Cardinal-Major-Archbishops or just Patriarchs/Major-Archbishops.
* Cardinals generally must be called ''Your Eminence,'' but ''My Lord Cardinal'' works too.
* And finally, the Pope himself is only addressed with ''Your Holiness.''
