* Named after the guards to the Emperors of Rome. As mentioned in the trope description, they weren't all that great at their job: Between killing Caligula and his next two successor bribing them upon claiming the throne (Though with Claudius it may have been intended as a please-don't-kill-me-too bribe), they came to the conclusion that they had the right to remove Emperors they didn't like, and not being paid off by the guy when he took the throne was grounds to do so.

Added DiffLines:

* The Royal Guards and the Knights of Round are supposed to be this for Emperor Lelouch in ''FanFic/MyMirrorSwordAndShield''. The Royal Guards is filled with spoiled noble second sons and end up being wiped out in their first battle. The Knights of Round backstabbed Lelouch twice on separate occasions due to their own agendas. The only loyal and competent Praetorian Guard is [[PeggySue Suzaku]].

*** Interesting historical fact: the Swiss are allowed to have soldiers on their home soil and the Vatican ''only''. The Swiss Constitution expressly forbids their natives from serving in any other military or as mercenaries, after the Swiss gained a reputation for being the ''deadliest mercenaries the world had ever seen.'' Their use by anyone other than the Vatican and Switzerland itself can constitute a ''warcrime'' without some serious exceptions.
