* The Apache Tracker in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' puts on the act of being one of these, stereotypical feather headdress and all, despite being a man "of apparently Slavic origin." Cecil never skips an opportunity to point out that this caricature is racist and offensive, even after [[spoiler:the Apache Tracker mysteriously transforms into an actual Native American]].

* Devo the Cursed In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', who is a native American assassin that kills people via "cursing" them.

** [[strike:Sandman]] Soundman from Steel Ball Run who can manipulate sound and turn sounds of actions real with his ability In a Silent Way also qualifies. It's unknown if he was born with his ability though or if he gained it from a [[SuperpowerLottery Devil's Palm]] location. It's mentioned he has always been rather different from the other members of his tribe though, implying it's former.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has Joseph Listens-to-Wind, also known as Injun Joe[[note]]He jokingly says if one was to be politically correct, unlike his peer Ebenezer [=McCoy=], he insists on being called "Native Amrican" Joe[[/note]], genuine Illinois medicine man, senior member of the White Council and, by extension, one of the most powerful wizards in the world. He's described as having a great sense of empathy for animals and even has a pet raccoon. He's also [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld well over two (possibly three) centuries old]], so he's one who remembers the better part of their history with the White Man. All in all, Listens-To-Wind is probably the least strained and most BadAss version of this trope. Ever.

** Then there was the [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] episode "Journey's End", in which Wesley meets Lakanta, a member of a tribe that actually came from the Americas to the planet Dorvan V and settled there in soon-to-be-again Cardassian space. Near the end of the episode, the man [[spoiler:freezes time and reveals himself to be The Traveler, whom he'd met in "Where No One Has Gone Before"]]. (This tribe, by the way, was intended to be the origin of the aforementioned Chakotay, according to the ''Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion (in turn, according to ''Memory Alpha'', the Star Trek wiki).)
