Tywin has never lost a war, as he proudly remarks to Arya and is a cunning and gifted military strategist. He is also a FrontlineGeneral unlike his book counterpart.

* [[MagnificentBastard General Tarquin]] from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' -- when he first arrived on the Western Continent, he conquered eleven different nations over the course of eight months, and was only deposed through the combined efforts of ''twenty-six'' others. And if [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0851.html this page]] is anything to go by, he's still got it even in his later years. [[spoiler:Subverted. He is in fact a deranged psycopath with no real military experience. Tarquin's only real talents are being both GenreSavvy and a capable figher. His ego is too big that he has convinced himself he is more important than he really is. Most of his empire's military talent came from elsewhere in his party. Rich Burlew confirmed all this [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=318550&page=4 in the forum]]]].

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Warcraft III]]: The Frozen Throne'' Subverted. While the game introduce [[FantasticRacism Grand Marshal Garithos]], who leads the last remnants of the Alliance of Lordaeron, and can fight Balnazzar, the most powerful Demon currently in the area to a standstill. It's heavily implied he rise to the rank of Grand Marshal not necessary because of his own abilities, but his father's reputation and title, and he happen to be the only highest-ranking survivor of Lordaeron military after the Scourge's rampage across the land. While he has many success in driving the Scourge out of Lordaeron, it's not without the aid from Ironforge and the ruined Quel'Thalas, and after he attempted to purge the Blood Elves from his ranks. His campaign met with nothing, but obstacles and failure, as Garithos and his entire forces was enslaved by the dreadlords, Detheroc and Balnazzar, become a mere pawn for sometime until the "real" four-star badass Sylvanas Windrunner, who used to be a ranger-general step in.

** Any Chaos Lord ever. Chaos Space Marines are superhuman genetically-engineered warriors with centuries (or even ''millennia'') of fighting experience and daemonic blessings to make them even more badass than loyalist Space Marines, and many of them are also murderously insane. They do ''not'' abide weak leaders and any Lord who loses the respect of the warband and/or the favour of the dark gods ''will'' wind up dead at the hands of someone who thinks they can do a better job. Abbadon the Despoiler is the Warmaster of all Chaos, commander of the Black Crusades and one of the most dangerous and powerful beings in the entire galaxy - on the tabletop he's a horrific close-combat beatstick capable of munching through entire squads on his own without being scratched and easily killing just about any other character in the game 1v1.
