* ''Fanfic/InTheService'' and ''Fanfic/LifeAfterHayate'' share the author's ranking system for [[LyricalNanoha TSAB]] Navy combat mages; the system is separate from the normal Navy ranking system to indicate their specialty and enshrine in regulation that the senior combat mage in the landing party will outrank any number of admirals. At the top end it rejoins the regular Navy ranking system.

* In ''{{Traveller}}'' Vilani noble titles don't translate on a one to one basis with Terran but there is a rough adaptation and many nobles of Vilani heritage prefer the Vilani rendering to the Terran. Vilani titles come from the days of the old First Imperium:

** ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' suggests that the Knights Radiant of old - or, at least, the Skybreakers order - used to have their own ranking system, based on the number of Oaths sword. Going from one to five, it was initiate, novice, Shardbearer, an unknown one and Radiant. Nale still uses the system for his acolytes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The prime minister of the Seven Kingdoms is called the Hand of the King. He is supported by a "small council" (privy council) of officials such as the "Master of Coin" (treasurer), "Master of Whisperers" (spymaster), and "Master of Laws" (attorney general).
** Dothraki ''khalasars'' are led by ''khals'' who are protected by three "bloodriders" and appoint lieutenants called ''kos'' who each command their own unit called a ''kas''. When a ''khal'' dies, the strongest ''ko'' will strive to replace him.

* ''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.
