-->'''Lord Cornwallis:''' This is hardly the conduct of a gentleman.\\
'''Benjamin Martin:''' If the conduct of [[BloodKnight your officers]] is the measure of a gentleman, [[IllTakeThatAsACompliment I consider that a compliment]].

* Whilst being a Jedi precludes being an actual gentleman, Obi-Wan Kenobi in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has the gentlemanly demeanour and reserved attitude of the trope - as well as making some truly cutting putdowns and snarkery in the most polite way possible. Not for nothing does a compilation of his best lines (https://youtu.be/H2sjvbtk1kw) label him 'the Master Of Trolling', yet not once in the whole video is he outright rude.

* ''TheSwanPrincess'' has Lord Rogers, Prince Derek's [[TheGoodChancellor good]] but sarcastic advisor. For example, after an epic foot-in-mouth scene from Prince Derek:
-->'''Lord Rogers:''' You could write a book. How to Offend Women in Five Syllables or Less.

* Midshipman Literature/AlexisCarew is a daughter of landed gentry who produces ''many'' zingers. Her first night aboard ''Merlin'', an older midshipman, Roland, makes a "gay sailor" DoubleEntendre about Alexis' bunkmate Philip Easley, wondering if she took the top bunk or the bottom bunk.
--->'''Roland:''' Likely the top. Given young Easely, after all. Can't imagine him on top! ... Though I'm a topman, myself, and always will be!\\
'''Alexis:''' I'm quite sure that Mister Easely would acquit himself with distinction, no matter the position.\\
'''Roland:''' Mayhap. But you'll never find me on the bottom, I assure you.\\
'''Alexis:''' I'm sorry to hear your repertoire is so limited, sir. Perhaps with more experience, you'll achieve some versatility. ''(everybody else bursts out laughing)''

* ''Fanfic/BloodAndHonor'': Sanguis is usually polite and well-mannered, even to her opponents, but she has a wry sense of humor which becomes more evident the longer she spends with Vette. She enjoys flirting with and flustering Quinn and throws out an occasional bit of verbal wordplay.
