* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Cultures that follow the Vorin religion have two related systems of ranks for darkeyes (peasants) and lighteyes (nobles). Both have ten ranks, with first being the highest and tenth the lowest, but the darkeye ranks are called ''nahn'' and the lighteye ''dahn''. The easiest way to go up a rank is either to buy it or to join the military, though there are limits. While ranks can be inherited, not all of them are inherited evenly; a king is first ''dahn'', for example, as is his heir, but any other children will slip down to third ''dahn'', which is a "stable" rank. Second ''dahn'' is for highprinces and their heirs. Other cultures have their own ranking systems, though none as explicit as the Vorin. They ''are'' descended from a ProudWarriorRace, after all.

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'': Came from canon but is expanded upon just a little bit here too. Meisters and Weapons can be, from highest to lowest, Three-Stars, Two-Stars, or One-Stars. Students from the NOT Class are given a rank of Zero-Stars to denote the fact that they canít go on missions unless with express permission.

*** The movies, and occasionally the TV series', would sometimes also throw in the rank of Commodore, which is not from the US Navy at all (but pulled in from the Royal Navy). It lies between Captain and Admiral, and would theoretically be someone in charge of a small fleet of ships (probably similar to the "Fleet Captain" rank mentioned above)

*** Romulan ranks are a bit confusing, in part because it seems the [[StateSec Tal Shiar]] and ordinary military does not use the same ranks, but overall their ranks appear to be a combination of modern human naval ranks (both Romulan Generals and Admirals show up), modern human naval ranks shifted to be equivalent to another rank (Commander is roughly equivalent of Captain, for instance), Roman-derived ranks (like Centurion for what appears to be a non-commissioned equivalent to Starfleet's Lieutenant commander) and using "sub" as a prefix to indicate a lower rank (Subcommander is roughly equivalent of Commander, as an example). There is also the enlisted rank of Uhlan, which is derived from an Eastern European title given to members of certain cavalry units.

* Realm Legions in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', when divided into smaller groups, name those groups after parts of a dragon - fangs for 5-man squads, scales for groups of 5 fangs etc. - and title the officer in charge of each group, for the most part, [group]lord - e.g. the leader of a scale is a scalelord.

* In ''PlanetSide 2'', the [[TheEmpire Terran Republic]] uses relatively normal ranks (plus the [[ThePoliticalOfficer Commissar]]). The [[MegaCorp New Conglomerate]] use no standard ranks - Guerilla, [[MilitaryMaverick Maverick]], Executors, et cetera. The [[MachineCult Vanu Sovereignty]] primarily uses AncientRome ranks such as "Legate", peppered with a few made-up ranks like "Paragon".

For real ranks, see UsefulNotes/CommonRanks, (usually) has nothing to do with RankInflation. Related to RandomPowerRanking, which is for ranking PowerLevels. Also related to SpaceNavy, which often uses one of these. See also FantasticHonorifics, which can overlap. Compare FantasticNamingConvention.

* In ''MobileSuitGundamSeed'', ZAFT has no formal rank system, though they do have a chain of command based on positions, as designated by Uniform colors. The majority of ZAFT personnel wear Green uniforms, mostly technicians and soldiers. Captains and Commanders wear Black, though so do the military bureaucrats. Individuals with considerable military achievements wear White, and act as Commanding Officers. Purple is worn by those in the PLANT's Supreme Council, and are de facto Flag Officers. Elite pilots (and top graduates) wear Red, and while they don't outrank Greens, they do serve as [=NCOs=].
