* The long-running pulp serial ''TheDestroyer'' is predicated on a prophecy that a white man will become the greatest master of the phlebotinum-laden Korean martial art of Sinanju. Main character Remo Williams is not just the prophesied white Sinanju master, he's also the incarnation of the Hindu god Shiva.

* ''VideoGame/World of Warcraft: Legion:'' The long-waited return of Second War hero Turalyon and his wife Alleria reveals that he has since joined the Army of the Light, a faction of enlightened races spoken of by the Draenei as survivors of homeworlds overtaken by the Legion. Although almost entirely made up of Draenei, Turalyon becomes more or less the leader of the Army of the Light. While Turalyon doesn't strike up a romance with any of the Army's Draenic women, his still carries out the trope of an exotic wife in his High Elven lover Alleria, who also ascends to a high rank within the Army.

** The extinct "[[BirdPeople Bird Men]]" were a [[PettingZooPeople Beast Race]] native to what would become the Imperial City Isle in central Cyrodiil. Topal the Pilot, the legendary [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmer]] explorer, became this to them. He and his men taught them to speak their own words and how to write, so they declared him their lord and offered him their islands. Despite this, the Bird Men would be rendered extinct at the hands of "cat demons," believed by modern scholars to have been the ancient [[CatFolk Khajiit]].
