* Professor Digory Kirke in [[Creator/CSLewis C.S. Lewis]]' ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'' novels fits like a glove. He slightly resembles an AbsentMindedProfessor at first glance, but this is probably just a thin layer of ObfuscatingStupidity. In any case, he is gracious enough to allow [[SacredHospitality the Pevensie children to stay in his home]], and dispenses sensible, mature advice based on keen and sound observations about human nature. It helps that he's [[spoiler: already been to Narnia himself]].

** [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor Charles Xavier]] is well-educated (he has a doctorate in genetics) and carries some characteristics of a QuintessentialBritishGentleman. ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' affirms that he's half-British through his mother, and she had raised him to behave and speak like a proper upper-class English gentleman.

* LordPeterWimsey. Expert on rare books, font of obscure facts, World War I veteran who won the undying devotion of Sgt. Bunter (who becomes his valet), skillful in unarmed combat, an aristocrat with a self-deprecating sense of humor, an oenophile with an encyclopedic palate, legendary cricket player, keenly intelligent amateur detective, and (until he falls in love with Harriet Vane) definitely a ladies' man.

* Abraham Van Helsing in Bram Stoker's novel ''{{Dracula}}'', where, despite being "one of the most advanced scientists of his day", he has nerves of steel, an open mind, a kind heart, and a wry sense of humour.

* In ''DarknessVisible'' Lord Henry Lewis and William Marsh both qualify, due to having impeccable manners and an enormous breadth of knowledge. Part of the reason the book is so full of [[ShoutOut shout outs]] is that [[BlueBlood Lewis]] is the narrator, and naturally refers to everything from Mythology to Creator/CharlesDickens.

* Khalid Sayeed in the ''VenusPrime'' series is both a brilliant geologist and consummate gentleman, although he's also a bit of a religious snob.
* [[RobertHeinlein Heinlein]] was fond of these, along with the RenaissanceMan types. Many of his protagonists were learned and witty intellects, and when they were more rough-and-tumble types there would be Gentleman Scholar as a [[{{Foil}} contrasting supporting character]].
