* The trope also tends to ''vastly'' underplay the actual difficulties hunter-gatherer societies face, such as the commonness and sheer brutality of tribal warfare, famine, disease, personal and gender roles defined by necessity and sky-high child mortality in a further attempt to portray civilized life as more decadent and less optimized in comparison.

* Used in Zane Grey's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rainbow_Trail ''The Rainbow Trail'']] where the Navajo play a large role through the story. After spending time with them, the white protagonist, Shefford, comes to view them with awe and reverence, finding in their ways the spiritual fulfillment he's been seeking. He eventually comes to the conclusion that the White Man's influence does more harm than good and that said White Man should just leave the Indians alone. Averted in some places with mentions of more hostile tribes and with antagonist Shadd, described as a "half-breed" [[spoiler: (We later find out he's not.).]]

* "Lo, the poor Indian, whose untutor'd mind/Sees God in clouds..." wrote Creator/AlexanderPope in his ''Essay on Man'' (1733). This poem became so iconic and so lampooned for its vision of the Noble Savage that in the 19th century American West, "Lo" was a slang name for any Indian.

** The Tauren fit the Noble Savage trope well.

to:

** The Tauren fit the Noble Savage trope well. Despite their fearsome appearance, [[GentleGiant they are no lovers of bloodshed]], in fact they are immensely spiritual, and taking another life, be it man or beast, is an act of great significance and responsibility in their shamanistic hunter-gatherer culture. They're also a good candidate for the noblest race in the entire setting, as they have the honour of being one of the few factions who to date have not committed a war-crime against an opposing faction (something even the new Pandaren factions aren't free of), and Tauren villains are very rare, Magatha Grimtotem aside, and she's just a traitor amongst the Tauren, not the Horde itself.
