Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheBannerSaga2'' has the Elite Guard, the guard of King Meinolf. Boasting high stats and the shield wall ability used by most shield bearing humans, they also come with their own set of unique abilities. All Elite Guards on the field will attack any target in range when King Meinolf uses his King's Will ability, and even take damage on behalf of the king, meaning he can't die as long as at least one guard stands. According to a conversation between Egil and Prince Ludin at the start of the game, you must have a title to apply. Depending on your choices, thy can fight with you, or against you.

* In ''[[CoDominium Falkenberg's Legion]]'', Vice President Bradford attempts this. He has Falkenberg organize a brigade composed of trusted party members and officers loyal to Bradford. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, Falkenberg is a little GenreSavvy, and uses the would-be Praetorian Guard to take the blunt of the fighting]].

** Subversion: The Toa Hagah were originally bodyguards of the Makuta, but when they found out that the Makuta had become evil, they proplty did a HeelFaceTurn and stole the Makuta's Achilles' Heel, the Mask of Light.
* MarvelComics' ComicBook/BlackPanther has the Dora Milaje, an AmazonBrigade who have even managed to take down the Black Widow . In previous generations, they were also the king's wives, but T'Challa broke this tradition and freed the women from obligating themselves beyond protection. [[BodyGuardCrush Too bad one of them was actually looking forward to being his wife]] and [[{{Yandere}} didn't want to take "no" for an answer.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Each faction has one in ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer''. Grimgor Ironhide has a squad of Black Orcs called "Immortulz" - as Grimgor is a 9-foot-tall, 400-pound axe-wielding murder machine himself, this is a case of BodyguardingABadass. Thorgrim Grudgebearer, the High King of the Dwarves, is carried into battle by four Thronebearers who can fight very well. The Reiksguard of the Empire also qualify, as a knightly order who serve as the Emperor's personal bodyguard. The Vampire Counts have their own dark counterparts in the form of the Black Knights and the Grave Guard, fallen warriors from long before the time of the Empire reanimated as skeletal puppets to protect and serve their new vampire masters.

* In RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse, we have the Night Guard of Princess Luna. They are set apart from the regular Equestrian armies by their enchanted armor, which in addition to strength and speed boosts grants a glamor that makes them appear to have slitted eyes, tufted ears, bat wings, and fangs (Luna finds that having her Guard look really scary can be quite useful).

* 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.
