* ''Literature/KemonoNoSoujaErin'' has Erin with a harp and using it to tame the Ouju. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in that she got it from Ia-lu who is a {{Badass}} Elite Soldier for the Shin-Oh, and he's first introduced playing said harp (which has his name carved into it) and even repairs and then helps Erin alter it.

* Aversion: Flewddur Fflam in the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' was a consummate {{badass}}, a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething king]], and a wandering bard.
