* In ''Literature/TheGuardians'', Hugh was a medieval knight sincerely striving towards honor and chivalry when he met Lilith. She taunts his naiveté by nicknaming him "Sir Pup". He was rewarded for his life of honesty with the [[PersonalityPowers Gift]] of lie detection.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'': Reinhardt Wilhelm is more of knight in [[PoweredArmor mechanical rocket powered armor]], but he still fits, and in fact ''[[InvokedTrope invokes]]'' this trope. He sees himself as a modern day knight, and was previously part of an enitre ''order'' of modern knights in powered armor, before the rest were destroyed in the First Omnic Crisis. He acted as the TheHeart to the titular Overwatch, staunchly supporting the group, but calling them out the minute they started straying morally. His forced retirement was the first step to the organization's eventual collapse from corruption and infighting, leading him to become a KnightErrant.

* "Knight" is a playable class in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls.'' In an expansion pack for the fourth game, the player can found his own holy order of shiny-armored knights.
** The second game had a wide variety of joinable orders of knights. There was the ''Knightly'' Orders, who were knights of a region (the Knights of the Dragon for Daggerfall, the Knights of the Rose for Wayrest, and so on), and the Templar Orders, who were knight-themed variants of the respective Temple (so the Akatosh Chantry had the Order of the Hour, the School of Julianos had the Knights Mentor, and so on). There is also the Order of the Lamp, the Mages' Guild's counterpart to the Templar Orders, which in-game dialogue suggests was meant to be joinable, even if it wasn't in the released version.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout the series (at least until ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' did away with classes),
"Knight" is was a playable preset class. Knights get bonuses to the [[HeroesPreferSwords Blade]] skill, as well as [[MightyGlacier Heavy Armor]], [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe Block]], Speechcraft, and Restoration, following the trope closely. The class description reads: "Of noble birth, or distinguished in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls.'' battle or tourney, knights are civilized warriors, schooled in letters and courtesy, governed by the codes of chivalry. In an expansion pack addition to the arts of war, knights study the lore of healing and enchantment."
** Though outside of High Rock, the [[UnevenHybrid Bretons]] are better known
for their magical prowess, he Bretons actually have a strong chivalric tradition and most city states have their own knightly order to that end, as most prominently seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]''. (Knights of the fourth game, Rose in Wayrest, Knights of the player Dragon in Daggerfall, as well as various Templar Orders such as the Order of the Hour who are dedicated to Akatosh, the God of Time, and the Knights Mentor, dedicated to the God of Knowledge.) Due to High Rock's [[DeadlyDecadentCourt cutthroat politics]], how noble these knights actually are can vary wildly.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Knights of the Nine'' expansion, the PlayerCharacter
can found his own a new holy order of shiny-armored knights.
** The second game had a wide variety of joinable orders of
knights. There was the ''Knightly'' Orders, who were knights of a region (the Knights of the Dragon for Daggerfall, the Knights of the Rose for Wayrest, and so on), and the Templar Orders, who were knight-themed variants of the respective Temple (so the Akatosh Chantry had the Order of the Hour, the School of Julianos had the Knights Mentor, and so on). There is also the Order of the Lamp, the Mages' Guild's counterpart to the Templar Orders, which in-game dialogue suggests was meant to be joinable, even if it wasn't in the released version.Membership requires avoiding "Infamy" at all costs.

** Davos Seaworth is not a straight example, because he doesn't wear armor, but he's one of the very few unambiguously good non-Stark characters and is a knight. It's thus a welcome development that he has now become the leading retainer of the resurgent Kingdom of the North, together with Brienne.

* Sayaka from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' aspires to be this - her love interest in this case is Kyousuke, who used to play the violin until his hand was badly injured in an accident. When she contracts to become a MagicalGirl, her outfit (of the magical girls we see in the series, hers is the only one [[TheCape with a cape]]) and weapon of choice (swords) reflect this goal. In a series written by Creator/GenUrobuchi, this quickly leads to tragedy.
