* John Rumford in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is a downplayed example early on when he drifts around after being discharged from the Marine Corps, unsure about the direction of his life but still idealistic, and very happy to jump in and help Gunny Matthews and the others in their battles with the gangsters. Then, he joins the Christian Marines vigilante group and becomes one of the TrueCompanions instead.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'''s ''Blood And Wine'' expansion features Knights-Errant in Toussaint, who wander the duchy taking on bandits and monsters for the duchess. Geralt himself can technically be considered one as well, especially if the player completes the "Knight For Hire" questline.

** From the series' backstory, the ancient Yokudan ({{Precursors}} of the Redguards) hero Frandar Hunding was one in his youth. One of the legendary [[TheOrder Ansei]], or "Sword Saints", he traveled Yokuda slaying all manner of men and monsters, while [[BloodKnight testing his skills]] in 90 duels. He was never once defeated, leading him to believe that he was invincible, so he retired to Mount Hattu and wrote the Book of Circles to pass along his insights. (He would later be called back into service, proving to be an extremely BadassGrandpa FrontlineGeneral.)

* 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.]]
