* Kevin Sack, Lord Blackstock, in ''Comicbook/{{Planetary}}'' was a blatant pastiche of Tarzan, with a name riffing on Ka-Zar's (Sack = Plunder). As with everything in ''Planetary'' it gets a bit deconstructed; the DeliberateValuesDissonance of the MightyWhitey not having ... relations ... with the locals is played up, and it's implied that he may have had ''less'' of a problem with [[BestialityIsDepraved his animal companions]].

* Most ranger and druid characters from the ''BaldursGate'' series, including Jaheira, Minsc, Kivan, Valygar and Cernd. Faldorn was this in the first game, but underwent a FaceHeelTurn and became an extremist that ended up doing more damage to her local grove than she was saving it from.

** In the new edition, the Ranger has deemphasized this, becoming a mix of archer and the DualWielding swordsman. On the other side, there's now an entire power source (Primal) for NatureHero characters: Shaman, Barbarian, Druid and Warden. The PHB3 added the Seeker class, whose skill at ranged weapons invokes the Ranger of earlier editions.
