* Literature/TalesOfDunkAndEgg, a {{Prequel}} series to ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] this concept.
** Ser Duncan appears to embody a classic knight errant. He's (relatively) young and quite idealistic, believing in the code of honor that knights are supposed to follow. Indeed, he believes that "The Hedge Knight", i.e., the wanderer who sleeps in meadows and beneath trees, is closer to a "true knight" than the more political, class-conscious, power-playing knights he witnesses. After the first story, the pattern is established that he'll wander into a new area, encounter a problem, help solve it (though not in the way he originally intended) and then move on.
** Subverted in that he [[SelfProclaimedKnight isn't really a knight]].
** Deconstructed when the [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire main series]] reveals that some of the problems he dealt with [[spoiler:weren't truly resolved and came back to bite him later.]] For example, when he solved the Blackwood-Bracken issue, [[spoiler:the solution created a different set of problems in the long term.]]

* The first novel in the ''MechWarrior: Dark Age'' series centers around a Knight Errant. He is essentially a Mech Warrior who had the job of traveling to trouble spots around the galaxy and basically lying low to gather information and take action in case something came up, although this was not apparent for the first several chapters.

* 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.]]
