* The Shama'Li in VideoGame/{{WarWind}} live in harmony with Yavaun's ecosystem, have natural magic abilities, and genuinely strive for peace and harmony among all races on the planet (including humans in the second installment). All this doesn't mean they cannot be a dangerous foe in combat, especially when it goes about the weak and oppressed.

Added namespaces.
* In TableTopGames/MagicTheGathering, most blue aligned races, as well as blue-aligned humans civilisations, fall under one of these tropes. The Vedalken are probably the most blatant example, because they don't exist outside of the Magic storyline and have no other role to fullfill.

* The Hylar from ''TwilightImperium'' board game are ruled by a government that is called the Universities of Jol-Nar. They also fulfill the "stuffed-up jerks" part of this trope, an attitude which bit them in the ass big time at least once, when it didn't occur to them they need the other races as much as these needed their science. * The Tremere from ''VampireTheMasquerade'' carry around "proud" by the wheelbarrow-full, having set themselves up as the Camarilla's greatest (and often sole) authority on the mystical arts. Mind you, being vampires, their manner is less "detached, reserved, and philosophical" and more "we're the only ones with the potential to know this, and if you try to know this, we will end you."

Added DiffLines:
* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', Adana is distinguished from its neighbours by its dedication to scholarship and technology. (Not necessarily ''peaceful'' technology, though it includes muskets.)

* The Andalites from ''{{Animorphs}}'' mostly fall under the ProudWarriorRaceGuy, but surprisingly fit this trope too--while males are supposed to be warriors, females are generally either scientists or artists, and the Andalites seem to be the dominant species in Earth's section of the galaxy as a result.

It's actually shown that the conflict with the [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerks]] is what drove them to put a their warrior culture on a pedestal. Before that, they were far more interested in art and science overall.

* Vulcans in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' are almost the UrExample of the stoic, detached scholar race, including mild PsychicPowers in the form of the mind meld. ** Vulcans are an example of both subsets of this trope. While they are usually presented as the scientific side sometimes they show a mystical aspect too. Occasionally as well they show some remainders of rather dark primeval traditions in their culture as in the episode "Amok Time" when Spock's [[ArrangedMarriage chosen bride]] manipulates Kirk and Spock into fighting a DuelToTheDeath for her favor. That episode is probably a remainder of the time when Vulcans were a ProudWarriorRace. ** Vulcans ''were'' once a ProudWarriorRace that had a HeelFaceTurn and became a [[ProudScholarRaceGuy Proud Scholar Race]]. The Romulans were Vulcans who became disgusted at what they considered to be their kin's dishonorable rejection of their {{Badass}} heritage. Thus Romulans are a ProudWarriorRace that are cousins to a [[ProudScholarRaceGuy Proud Scholar Race]]. However, they're also ''not'' entirely un-Vulcan. The ones we've seen who were not enemies are more emotional than Vulcans but more restrained and in control all the time than most other races. ** There is actually a biological explanation for this. Vulcans and Romulans actually experience emotions more strongly than Humans, and have to keep active control over them at all times to even function. This is why Romulans seem to go from calm to shouting instantly, and Vulcans who lose their cool lose self-control completely.

** Both the Asgard and the Nox, in [[Franchise/StargateVerse the same Verse]], have elements of this as well. The Asgard are an odd example as they are named after (or, in-universe, inspired the legends of) Myth/NorseMythology, generally much less scholarly than most.
