Added DiffLines:

** [[Metaplot/YuGiOhHiddenArsenal The Gem-Knights]], with the sole exception of Antiluminescent Knight Cairnogorgon. They only got involved in the storyline's battles after repeated attacks.

Subtrope to IdealHero. See also ShiningGoodness. Compare the gentleman's OldSchoolChivalry. Compare and contrast the DoggedNiceGuy.

An OfficerAndAGentleman is the [[GenreSavvy modern verion of this trope]] - ''very'' often even their direct genetic descendants as old [[BlueBlood noble families]] are ''grossly'' over-represented in all military academies around the world. With the notable exception of United States, of course.

* ''FireEmblem: [[FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'':
** Parodied with Sain in , who acts like this [[ChivalrousPervert just so he can get women]]. The only result is that his comrade, Kent, repeatedly tells him to drop it and get back to work.
** Played straight as an arrow with Seth and Geoffrey, and Kent for that matter.
** Camus and Arran from ''FireEmblemAkaneia'' could be seen as PlayedForDrama. Camus ends up having to choose between his love and his country, ending up going with the latter. This results in him being left for dead and his love being stuck in a loveless ArrangedMarriage. When he returns as Sirius in ''Mystery'', he devoted himself to saving Nyna, but in the end [[spoiler: even though he's able to snap her out of being BrainwashedAndCrazy, he resigns himself to the fact he can't be with her, and leaves never to return.]]

A cultural trope in Europe since medieval times, most good knights practice something called [[http://www.astro.umd.edu/~marshall/chivalry.html chivalry]], [[TheFettered Honor]], and [[EmotionsVsStoicism Self-Control]] and occasionally [[CelibateHero chastity]]. Prone to rescuing the DamselInDistress, or delivering her from [[MaliciousSlander false accusations]], often whilst bearing TheLadysFavour. The Knight in Shining Armor was a frequent carrier of TheDulcineaEffect: medieval {{Chivalric Romance}}s, indeed, portrayed knights who fell in love with a ''[[PeerlessLoveInterest princesse lointaine]]'' merely on hearing her described, without even seeing her - though his love and heroism usually [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan won her heart]]. Another occupational hazard is ChronicHeroSyndrome, [[KnightErrant Knights Errant]] being charged to WalkTheEarth righting wrongs until a worthy quest shows up.

See LordErrorProne and MilesGloriosus for common variations, played with tropes, and parodies and KnightInSourArmor for what happens when the world fails to live up to ''their'' standards, but they keep on being good anyway. If the knight is ''too'' dedicated to his ideals and code, he may become a KnightTemplar. If he likes ''too '' much the fighting thing, he is in danger to become a BloodKnight. A knight who is shiny for one person in particular is TheChampion. A knight that gets magical powers as a reward for this goodness is almost certainly ThePaladin to boot.

boot. A knight who is first and foremost a soldier and could not care less for his code, is likely to be a CombatPragmatist - and a dangerous one.

* The Black Knight in Marvel Comics is a litteral one.

* Though he may not be called a 'knight', CaptainAmerica is as much a pure example of this trope as modern jaded audiences can stand. His classic outfit includes maille or scales on the upper portion, he carries a shield, and a modern Captain owes much to the role of a knight in leading his troops. In behaviour? No more noble or righteous 'knight' exists in the Marvel Universe - Ultimate Cap excepted, of course.

* Tamahome from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. Hotohori ''wants'' to be this [[TheDulcineaEffect to the Priestess]], but Miaka is more interested in Tamahome.
