* ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'': Mitsuhide Lowen is a knight, kind man and excellent swordsman who is [[completely loyal UndyingLoyalty]] to prince Zen who he is a retainer for. He also attracts a number of female admirers due to his personality and looks but avoids romance both through [[ObliviousToLove obliviousness]] and [[MarriedToTheJob his dedication to his job]] as Zen's protector. Zen's other initial retainer Kiki Serian reflects this trope as well, though her stoic unreadable nature and the fact that she will have to give up living as a just a knight to take over as head of her family makes her an interesting take.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', this is generally [[WhiteMagic White]]'s shtick. Though depending on the setting, it might range from anything from classical heroic knights to insidious [[KnightTemplar fanatics]] and other deconstructions.


Added DiffLines:

** [[GothicHorror Innistrad]] has cathars, which generally dress up in trenchcoats but occasionally show up in more classically medieval armour.
** Ixalan has a rare mesoamerican version, riding ''dinosaurs''.
** Parodied in [[http://www.artofmtg.com/art/chivalrous-chevalier/ Chivalrous Chevalier]]:

* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' the main characters' teacher Akari Koumoto has been holding onto the "prince on a white horse" fantasy for years, well into her ChristmasCake phase; though it's PlayedForLaughs like everything in the series, it's also seriously examined, since it's strongly implied that the entire reason Akari has never been in a relationship is because she's convinced herself that TrueLove will just fall into her lap one day so she doesn't actually ''need'' to do anything.

On the other hand, the reason she has this particular fantasy in the first place is because as a child she'd always been either made fun of or treated like OneOfTheBoys due to her unnatural strength and height, and she just wants a man will treat her like a feminine woman rather than being scared of her.

** From the series' backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind who came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. Or, at least, that's how he is [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade remembered in Imperial dogma]] anyway. Pelinal subverts the trope, having ''also'' been a [[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]] who would fly into fits of UnstoppableRage (''mostly'' directed at the Ayleids) during which he [[BloodSplatteredWarrior would be stained with their blood]] and [[PaintTheTownRed left so much carnage in his wake]] that Kyne, one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]], would have to [[CueTheRain send in her rain]] to cleanse Ayleid forts and village before they could be used by Alessia's forces. In one infamous fit of rage, he ''damaged the lands themselves'', which nearly caused the divines to ''leave the world in disgust''.

* Zig-Zagged with Edward, the Black Prince. He was scrupulously honourable in the treatment of his noble prisoners, including French King John the Good, even giving John permission to go home at one point, as well as delaying the Battle of Poitiers for a day to allow both sides to discuss the battle and Cardinal Périgord to plead for peace. However, he also favoured the ''chevauchée'' strategy, which is essentially short-hand for RapePillageAndBurn for reasons of strategic expediency. Basically, as HarkAVagrant says, [[http://www.oxonianreview.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/duality.png like this]].

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': The [[AlwaysLawfulGood paladin]] class was based on Knight in Shining Armor archetype in general and supposedly ''Three Hearts and Three Lions'' in particular. Paladins are more like holy crusaders empowered with divine magic, though.
