* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zawisza_Czarny Zawisza the Black]] was considered to be a model of knightly virtues in Poland in his lifetime and even more after his death. He served two kings, Władysław Jagiełło (of his native Poland) and Sigismund of Luxembourg (the king of Hungary and Holy Roman Emperor). Insterestingly, in the Battle of Grunwald, where Sigismund allied with the Teutonic Knights against Poland, he decided that his national identity trumped the commitments to his overlord Sigismund, a sentiment quite innovative in the Middle Ages. Apart from being a jousting champion (in 1421 he defeated Prince John of Aragon at a tourney in the castle of Perpignan), he was also an accomplished diplomat and frequently negotiated peace treaties. He died while fighting Ottoman Turks in Serbia. Even today, in Poland his first name (quite a oppular name at the time) is [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade is a shorthand of chivalry and righteousness]].

** Barristan Selmy arguably fits this trope the best, and is presented as something of a paragon of a by-gone age.

** Barristan Selmy arguably fits this trope the best, and is presented as something of a paragon of a by-gone age. This becomes especially clear after he joins Daenerys, and his advising her to morally correct choices contrasts with Jorah's more coldly pragmatic suggestions.

** Jorah Mormont is not nearly as straight an example as Barristan Selmy (indeed, his armor's a rather dull, functional grey, reflecting his pragmatism), but he's definitely got his moments. Also {{reconstructed}} in his case, as he began the series as a rather self-centered manipulator (selling out the Targaryens, to whom he had sworn an oath, to Varys and King Robert in exchange for a pardon). But when he finds someone truly worthy of his loyalty, and whom he also loves (Daenerys) he drops it immediately, BecomingTheMask and a rock-hard Targaryen loyalist, not to mention upright, kind, and honest, while still being acceptably pragmatic and ruthless towards the Targaryens' enemies.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Ser Loras Tyrell, [[AgentPeacock the Knight of Flowers]], embodies the chivalric ideals of Westeros. Supposedly anyway. He's not above being a CombatPragmatist, and some other knights in attendance considered what he did [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty dirty cheating]].

* Roman from ''[[WebVideo/ThomasSanders Sanders Sides]]'' would very much ''like'' to be one, but he has difficulty since, 1) He's simply a facet of Thomas' personality, not an actual human, and, 2) Thomas lives in modern, suburban Florida. He still tries to push Thomas into acting like one from time to time.

* When Vivian of PrettyWoman was a little girl she would pretend she was a princess... trapped in a tower by a wicked queen. And then suddenly this knight... on a white horse with these colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword. And she would wave. And he would climb up the tower and rescue her.

** The gilded armor Gregor Clegane wears as Kingsguard member is clearly meant to invoke this. Unfortunately, this character ''utterly'' averts this.
