* The first use of this for the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' franchise was the Creator/{{Capcom}} BeatEmUp ArcadeGame ''VideoGame/AlienVsPredatorCapcom'', though they went by the name of "Royal Guard", while the "Praetorian" monniker would be be used in the 1999 FirstPersonShooter ''VideoGame/AliensVsPredator''. Accordingly, Praetorians are the largest and strongest of the xenomorph castes before the Alien Queen, protecting the latter and the egg chambers from intruders. Their physical characteristics and behavior varies from appearances, but a common trait are the Praetorians' having large, triangular-shaped heads like the Queen, yet slower, but tougher than the average Alien Drone or Warrior.

And [[DependingOnTheWriter in some variations]], if the current queen dies, one of the praetorians will metamorphos into a new queen to replace her.

** The Kingsguard are seven knights sworn to serve for life protecting the king. Traditionally they are supposed to be great warriors and paragons of chivalry, but few actually live up to this and like the real Praetorians one of them was responsible for the death of the previous king, though unlike them it has not become a habit.

** Prior to the Secret Service's establishment, the White House has occasionally been guarded by militia or army units in times of war or unrest; in calmer times, a day shift of security guards and a night shift of watchmen monitored visitors and crowds. From its beginning, White House security has opted for plain clothes or understated uniforms, as no President has wanted the residence of the chief executive to resemble an armed camp.

* Soem games in the Aliens vs. Predator series have a special kind of Alien breed called Praetorians which function much like their real-life human counterparts did, namely protecting the Alien queen and the egg chambers from intruders. Their physical characteristics and behavior varies from game to game, with the version from AvP 1 and 2 having a large, triangle-shaped head like the queen, being larger, slower, and much tougher than the average Alien drone or warrior.

** The background material also features the Adeptus Custodes, [[BlingOfWar golden-armored]] {{super soldier}}s [[BladeOnAStick bearing polearms]] [[BifurcatedWeapon with integrated]] [[MoreDakka storm]] [[HandCannon bolters]]. It is said that a member of the Adeptus Custodes is to a Space Marine as a Space Marine is to an ordinary human.
