* The second case of the ''VideoGame/AceAttorney'' fangame [[VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyConflictOfInterest Conflict of Interest]] features Sir Gallante, a [[VigilanteMan vigilante]] who fancies himself one of these crossed with a BlackKnight. He even has a simple "Slay the evil, [[NeverHurtAnInnocent protect the innocent]]" CodeOfHonor. In reality, he's more of a vicious serial murderer, the only justification for his gruesome attacks being that all his victims were involved with the local organized crime syndicate. Most of the case revolves around figuring out and proving his true identity. [[spoiler: The aforementioned code is ultimately what allows for his defeat. There's not enough evidence to convict him, but by reminding him of his principles, he realizes that evading the law any longer will result in someone else being convicted for his crimes, after which he confesses to everything.]]

* Tends to come with the territory with ''Anime/{{Mushishi}}''. Having the skills to deal with ''mushi'' usually comes because they're a WeirdnessMagnet for ''mushi''; so once they finish, they usually leave before ''more'' of them are drawn in.

* KingdomHearts gave us Sora, who constantly travels from world to world, never stopping or staying very long, righting whatever wrongs he happens to come across along the way, from finding lost dogs to toppling local tyrants. He might have a few too many friends to count as a truly classical example, but 90% of them are the "leave them behind when you leave town" variety. By VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance, it's earned him an [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever official knighting]] by then-Princess Minnie.

* ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' is a Western adaptation of ''Film/TheSevenSamurai''.
* The Jedi from ''Franchise/StarWars'' often act as Knights Errant. ''Film/ANewHope'' itself was adapted from ''The Hidden Fortress'', a samurai movie. By the book Obi-Wan is a good specific example because he is an ideal Jedi Knight.
* ''Film/{{Shane}}'' may be the UrExample of cowboys as Knights Errant.
* ''Every'' SpaghettiWestern.
** The Man With No Name from the Film/DollarsTrilogy might be the ultimate Western example. His Japanese counterpart in ''Film/{{Yojimbo}}'' even moreso. He just stumbles on the town the film takes place in while wandering aimlessly and gets involved in the MobWar for both justice and profit.
** [[NoNameGiven Harmonica]] from ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest'', who was originally going to be The Man With No Name until Clint Eastwood was unavailable for the part.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' has this as a retirement option for Judges who don't want to take [[VeteranInstructor an academy teaching post]] or [[DeskJockey a desk job]]. They can either head out into the Cursed Earth or down into the Undercity to take the law to the lawless.
