** 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.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', all noble Brettonians aspire towards becoming true knights in shining armour. Grail Knights, who have been found pure in heart and soul and blessed by the [[EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity Lady of the Lake]], all qualify for this trope by definition. The Empire also has several noble knightly orders, but their modernization means that the chivalric ideals are not as predominant there as in Brettonia.

* ''VideoGame/ForHonor'' has the Knights of the Iron Legions as one of its three factions, yet the only Knight class that approaches this trope is [[HeroesPreferSwords the Warden]], who looks the most like the classic interpretation of a knight, wields a longsword, and serves as the viewpoint character for their chapter [[spoiler: and afterwards ends up leading a resistance movement of the other Legions against [[BigBad Apollyon and her Blackstone Legion]].]] (and yet still, they don't wear full-on shining plate armor as the trope usually goes,
instead wearing brigandine over their torso) [[GameplayAndStorySegregation There's nothing stopping a Warden player]] [[CombatPragmatist fighting as dishonorably as they want to win fights in the game however.]]

* Pierre Terrail, seigneur de Bayard, was known in his lifetime as "the knight without fear and beyond reproach" and, to his friends, "the good knight". He served three kings of France with absolute loyalty, unimpeachable courage, chivalry and honour, and exceptional skill in war. Right up until the 20th century the name "Bayard" was a byword for courage and virtue.

Invariably LawfulGood and [[TheFettered honor bound]]. First appeared in the ChivalricRomance. He has a very high incidence of having a BodyguardCrush and RescueRomance.
