* ''BaldursGate'': The series had a few-brash but idealistic squire Anomen, relentlessly pious and judgmental Ajantis, and the old but still fighting Keldorn. Oddly enough, perhaps the most outspokenly classical example is a female halfling, Mazzy, who comes as close as a halfling can come to a paladin in a Second Edition-based game. The Knights of the Noble Order of Radiant Heart were an order of this trope, whom the protagonist could join if s/he was a paladin too.

* Mika of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' is affectionately dubbed as being this [[HoYay for Yuu]] given his constant DeclarationOfProtection about him, desire to save him above all else, and occasionally getting to carry him in a BridalCarry. Ferid even refers to Yuu as the [[InSeriesNickname precious princess]] that Mika wants to save and likens it to "love".

Historical knights were first and foremost professional soldiers. They usually were of BlueBlood - or, if commoner-born, founders of a new noble family. Their ''modus operandi'' was lance-armed heavy cavalry, which [[AttackAttackAttack charged the enemy in full gallop on closed ranks]]. They often were used dismounted as well, when they fought as heavy infantry, usually armed with [[BladeOnAStick enormous can-openers]] such as poleaxes or [[Notes/EuropeanSwordsmanship two-handed swords]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheQueensFool'' portrays Lord Robert Dudley as this. He rides to battle in the war against France to show the Queen his loyalty after he loses all his lands. He also remains respectful towards Hannah after she refuses him, and remains cool with his wife when she accuses him of cheating on her.

* Although most D&D adaptations (as in the cases of ''Record of Lodoss War'' and ''Dragonlance'') play the trope straight, the trope is subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'' cartoon series, in which Eric the Cavalier, the cast member closest to a knight, is vain, selfish, and cowardly. (He does demonstrate a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold well-buried better nature]] at certain points, usually against his better judgment). Hank the Ranger, meanwhile, occupies the Knight in Shining Armor role.

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. 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.

* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'': By day Ghostrick Dullahan masquerades as a suit of antique armor, but at night he shows his true colors as a veteran knight, acting as a leader figure for the other residents of the museum.

** [[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.

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.
