* Sha Gojyo as the Roguish Male and Cho Hakkai as the Noble Male from ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}''. This being [[DysfunctionJunction Saiyuki]] however, Hakkai isn't entirely as noble as he seems.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Early on, Tristan/Honda (Noble Man) and Joey/Jounouchi (Roguish Man) had this dynamic, but as Joey went through CharacterDevelopment, he started becoming a more heroic character... right about the same time Duke/Otohi became a recurring minor character and filled this slot better than Joey ever had. It especially became clear in regards to their pursuit of Jou's sister, Serenity/Shizuka, with DoggedNiceGuy Tristan performing gesture after gesture of kindness and self-sacrifice towards her, while HandsomeLech Duke sweeps her off her feet with his charm.
* Nanami's two familiars, Mizuki and Tomoe, from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' qualify. Mizuki is almost always polite and respectfully to other people, even though he is a bit naive sometimes, a GeniusDitz and is something of a shut-in. Tomoe's personality ranges from JerkAss to JerkWithAHeartOfGold and his interests include booze and trips to the RedLightDistrict.

* In ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'', Conrad Weller is the Noble Male: an upstanding knight, loyal to his king to the point of stupidity, actually of noble birth in both human and demon lands, and a chivalrous fighter. His best friend Jozak is the Roguish Male, a cynical and worldly-wise spy and CombatPragmatist who has no problem with the idea of manipulating their new, inexperienced king for his own good. Throughout the series, though, it's consistently shown that of the two, Jozak is more emotionally healthy.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** Best friends and foster brothers Ned Stark (noble) and Robert Baratheon (roguish). Ned is incredibly honorable. Robert's heart is basically in the right place too, but hea not so bound by honor, and he's a total slut.
** Another pair of quasi-brothers, Robb Stark (noble) and Theon Greyjoy (roguish). Robb is Ned's son, and he's much like his father. Theon has a mess of conflicting feelings and loyalties, and he spins out and implodes. After sleeping with a girl he should've have, Robb marries her. Theon is a slut.
** Robb Stark's two most notable bannermen, the WickedCultured Roose Bolton and the BoisterousBruiser Greatjon Umber. Similar to Berserk's example of Griffith and Guts respectively, Roose is an utter monster masking his AxeCrazy, sadistic nature behind a gentlemanly veneer and while Greatjon Umber may be quite sexist he is overall a good man.
* There's romantic rivals Edward (moody) and Jacob (loyal) from ''{{Twilight}}''. Edward tends to be more noble and chivalrous (to the point of being old-fashioned), while Jacob is more of the bad boy who is impulsive and tries to pick fights with Edward on multiple occasions.

** Best friends
In ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'', Jame goes to Tentir and foster brothers Ned Stark (noble) meets and Robert Baratheon (roguish). Ned slowly befriends two guys. At first glance, friendly, fine-featured Timmon looks like the Noble Male, and surly, burly Gorbel looks like the Roguish Male. But the trope is incredibly slowly zigzagged. As you get to know them, "Noble" Timmon turns out BrilliantButLazy, and "Roguish" Gorbel to be hardworking and driven, and quite honorable. Robert's heart is basically Timmon's also kind of a slut, while Gorbel never shows interest in anyone. So in the right place too, but hea not so bound by honor, end, even though Timmon is a good diplomat and he's a total slut.

* Creator/RaymondEFeist loves this trope: the early books (and many of the later ones) in Literature/TheRiftwarCycle all revolve two male protagonists who slot neatly into these roles:

to:

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Peeta Mellark as the noble male, Gale Hawthorne as the roguish male. Peeta is gentle, kind, chivalrous, has quite the way with words and advocates diplomacy over violence (even, at times, during the actual Hunger Games). Gale is hot blooded and passionate, believes that the ends justify the means, eager to go out and fight, and became his family's main provider at age thirteen when he began poaching (eventually together with Katniss).
* In ''Literature/KnightAndRogueSeries'', Main characters Michael and Fisk zigzag this trope. While Michael is the nobleman and Fisk is the rogue/semi-reformed con artist, Michael is the more rash and reckless one while Fisk is the scholarly one. Over the course of the story it becomes increasingly difficult to really tell which one is which.
* Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt gives us Seth and Johan in her debut novel ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}''. Seth might be a better man than what you might think at first, but he does have a roguish thing going on, and he just keeps having meaningless affairs with numerous women. Johan is noble and pretty much flawless. But they're still close friends, and also, [[spoiler: they eventually get married to two cousins]]. [[note]]Interestingly enough, while LightFeminineDarkFeminine is the technical distaff counterpart to this trope, Seth's love interest Beatrice (a SpiritedYoungLady) and Johan's love interest Sofia (a ProperLady) rather have a TomboyAndGirlyGirl dynamic.[[/note]]

* In ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'', Jame goes to Tentir and meets two guys. At first glance, friendly, fine-featured Timmon looks like the Noble Male, and surly, burly Gorbel looks like the Roguish Male. But the trope is slowly zigzagged. As you get to know them, "Noble" Timmon turns out BrilliantButLazy, and "Roguish" Gorbel to be hardworking and driven. Timmon's also kind of a slut, while Gorbel never shows interest in anyone. So in the end, even though Timmon is a good diplomat and Gorbel is a good hunter, they're both have HiddenDepths and are more complex than the simple Noble Male, Roguish Male dichotomy.

Two male characters portray different aspects of masculinity. The Noble Male is generally [[GentlemanAndAScholar world-wise, gentlemanly, and sophisticated]] -- while the Roguish Male is generally [[HotBlooded reckless, wild]], and [[BloodKnight prone towards fighting]]. The former will generally [[LadyAndKnight focus on a single special lady and treat her with the highest respect]] while the latter tends more toward sleeping around with many women or [[CelibateHero is just not interested in sex and romance at all]]. If he is, romance with him is likely to be [[DestructiveRomance destructive]], [[CartwrightCurse deadly even]], if he is [[HeManWomanHater any good with women at all]].

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Early on, Tristan/Honda (Noble Man) and Joey/Jounouchi (Roguish Man) had this dynamic, but as Joey went through CharacterDevelopment, he started becoming a more heroic character...right about the same time Duke/Otohi became a recurring minor character and filled this slot better than Joey ever had. It especially became clear in regards to their pursuit of Jou's sister, Serenity/Shizuka, with DoggedNiceGuy Tristan performing gesture after gesture of kindness and self-sacrifice towards her, while HandsomeLech Duke sweeps her off her feet with his charm.

* ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' has Jerin Whistler(noble) and [[spoiler: Keifer Porter]] (roguish), as love interests of [[spoiler: the princesses.]] The love interests for the Whistler sisters also fall into this category, with the roguish, uncaring and sexually promiscuous Balin Brindle, and [[spoiler: Cullen Moorland]] who is sweet and gentle. The Whistler family and the Brindle family are different in that the Brindles usually ''start'' fights at social gatherings, while the Whistlers ''end'' them, swiftly and without excessive violence. The Brindles are uncultivated country folk, while the Whistlers have manners fit for a royal court.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has Ned Stark (noble) and Robert Baratheon (roguish). Robb Stark (noble) and Theon Greyjoy (roguish).
** Another example in the series are Robb Stark's two most notable bannermen, the WickedCultured Roose Bolton and the BoisterousBruiser Greatjon Umber. Similar to Berserk's example of Griffith and Guts respectively, Roose is an utter monster masking his AxeCrazy, sadistic nature behind a gentlemanly veneer and while Greatjon Umber may be quite sexist he is overall a good man.

** Cloud and Barret. Cloud's blond, pale, blue-eyed, [[{{Bishounen}} androgynously beautiful]] (but still unambiguously masculine), a former soldier, pragmatic, chivalrous and a sword-fighter, and while he can be flashy and superficial he's ultimately quite introverted. Barret's a HotBlooded ScaryBlackMan and terrorist with a vicious temper, little ability to restrain his emotions, and a huge gun mounted onto one of his arms. Out of the two of them, Cloud is the flirt, but Barret's more experienced (having been married) - in one scene he advises Cloud to ask either Aeris or Tifa on a date, something Cloud claims not to have interest in.
