* ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}: Quint, the grumpy chief cook of starship Entreprise-2061, obviously based on Sam Quint from ''Film/{{Jaws}}''. The [[EyepatchOfPower one-eyed]] and [[HandicappedBadass one-armed]] sea-dog has been [[CoveredWithScars through a lot]], although we learn at the end that [[EveryScarHasAStory every scar has a story]]...

Added DiffLines:

* [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]] is a classic example. Throughout the book he's referred to consistently as an "old man", but despite having a [[PiratePegleg whalebone pegleg]] above the knee, he's portrayed as a skilled whale hunter to this day (and even called the best harpooner in Nantucket), the Pequod's owners have utter faith in his competence, and his crew genuinely admires him. He also charts whale migrations and manages to successfully locate a single whale that could be anywhere in the world's oceans, suggesting that his reputation as a captain is well earned.

* Amos Trask/Captain Trenchard from TheRiftwarCycle boasts that "I'm Captain Trenchard! The Dagger of the Sea! I've sailed the Straits of Darkness on Midwinter's Day! My ship's the Raptor and I've taken her into the Seven Lower Hells, drunk ale with Kahooli and sailed home again! My mother was a sea dragon, my father was lightning and I dance a sailor's jig on my victim's skulls! I fought with the war god and kissed death herself. Men tremble at my shadow and women swoon at my name and no one lives who can call me liar!"
