** Mandalorians subvert the trope by not always being a Race or Species. Instead they're a Warrior Culture. They were first made up of aliens called the Taung but were replaced by Rodians, Twi'leks, Zeltrons, Humans and others as Taung numbers were worn down during the Mandalorian Crusades. Humans dominated their culture by the Empire era, but members of other species are still allowed to join Mandalorian society. [[note]] If you follow their warrior code, wear the armor, and an established Mando adopts you into their clan, it's just as good as being born into it. This is a possible path for the BountyHunter in StarWarsTheOldRepublic. Mandalore the Vindicated offers to adopt the player character. Their other hat is being family-oriented; part of code involves marrying and raising children. Your spouse is of a different species? Same sex? Infertile? Well, go out there and ''adopt'' a few kids! [[/note]] And despite the historical enmity between the Mandalorians and the Jedi, there were examples of Jedi Knights and even a few Jedi ''Masters'' renouncing the Order to become Mandalorians over the centuries. Ironically, Humans and the Taung fought for control of Coruscant as far back as 25,000 years before the rise of the Empire. The Taung retreat from Coruscant led to the founding of Mandalorian society.

** A very specific combination of traits and ethos [[note]]Militarist/Materialist/Xenophobe with the Industrious and Strong traits[[/note]] can result in the "Metalheads" AI personality. These guys are so hardcore and batshit crazy that they never do peace: they're at war with everyone. ''All the time''. Even empires which are several times stronger than them and could crush them easily. Put this way: Aggressiveness is an AI behaviour modifier that works in the background and determines how likely a species will declare war on another. Honourbound Warriors have an aggressiveness rating of 1.75x. Metalheads' rating is ''10x''.

* The werewolves in "Monster Princess/Princess Resurrection" are this. To the point where they properly introduce themselves before a fight and identify their parents! "I am Riza Wildman! Daughter of the warrior Volg Wildman!" They take great offense to ANY challenge to their or their family's honor or strength. Hime even made a point of killing Risa's brother Lobo from the front because she knew a werewolf warrior getting killed from behind is considered an unbearable stain on his/her honor.

** The [[HornyVikings Nords]]. A race of Men, they exemplify the idea that HumansAreWarriors. It took a mere 500 of their best warriors to annihilate the entire Falmer (Snow Elves) civilization. Being a great warrior is even at the heart of their religion, where only those who die a glorious death in combat get into their ideal afterlife, [[WarriorHeaven Sovngarde]] (modeled after the real life Valhalla). While most Nords follow the main religion of most of Tamriel (the Nine Divines), many hold Talos, the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin ascended god form]] of [[GodEmperor Emperor Tiber Septim]] and God of War, as the chief deity of the pantheon. When worship of Talos is banned in the 4th Era, it launches them into a bloody civil war, as seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollSVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.
** The [[{{Qurac}} Arabic]] / [[DarkestAfrica African]] themed [[ScaryBlackMan Redguards]], a race of men who came to Tamriel from the sunken land of Yokuda, also qualify. In additional to their cultural basis, they also share a number of traits with the Samurai. They are perhaps the most skilled individual warriors in Tamriel, with their culture placing huge value on [[CoolSword swords and swordsmanship]]. So skilled were their ancient "sword singers," that it is said they were able to "[[FantasticNuke cut the atomos]]" with their swords. The Redguard claim that this is how Yokuda sank, and the technique is now [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique forbidden]] and quite possible lost to history as a result. In the late 2nd Era, it was believed that a Redguard uprising was the greatest threat to Tiber Septim's RisingEmpire. Come the 4th era, they are once again considered one of the two groups who could stand up to a full-blown [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Aldmeri]] [[AntiHumanAlliance Dominion]] assault.[[note]]The other group being the [[LizardFolk Argonians]], who have been [[TookALevelInBadass toughened up]] by the Hist, sentient trees they worship and whose sap the Argonians drink to grow, to be better weapons of war.[[/note]]

** The Omicronians are basically the shows parody of the Klingons. While they do invade planets, they are willing to reason with others. Lrrr especially fits this as seen in "Spanish Fry" when its revealed that he had a soft spot for small creatures and was willing to protect a bigfoot animal from a camp ranger. Their culture is basically built around the idea of war and have traits similar to Spartans.
** The Carcarons are also a proud warrior race. They like the omicronians, have an honor filled warlike culture and are also willing to reason with others. Their members only got angry and turned hostile when Zapp Brannigan tried to screw them over on a peace treaty by tricking them into signing a declaration of war.

* Deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', as Mandalore's infighting and [[KlingonPromotion backstabbing]] made it easy for the Empire to manipulate, divide, and exploit them until they were too scattered to fight back against the Empire, subjugating the entire culture save for a few [[TheQuisling quislings]] who became their lackeys in exchange for power. And even then, most of them are still too caught up in power struggles and old rivalries to form any sort of resistance. Sabine, one of the main characters and the most prominent Mandalorian, is proud of her heritage but also critical of its flaws. [[spoiler:Her discovery of the darksaber, an artifact that would unite the Mandalorians, and her search to find the right person to wield it, indicates that things might be heading towards reconstruction.]]

** In keeping with the HumansAreWarriors theme, there are the Imperials, another race of Men native to Cyrodiil. They come down on the "Soldier" side of the SoldierVersusWarrior debate in contrast to the "Warrior" Nords and Redguards. Their focus is on collective martial prowess, ala the legions of the Roman Empire, and it has allowed them to conquer most or all of Tamriel no fewer than four times. They are also a proud "Diplomat" and "[[ProudMerchantRace Merchant]]" race, in that once they've conquered a region with their [[BadassArmy Legions]], they like to build up the region to make it more supportive of the Empire while dominating the economy through trade.

* The Honorbound Warriors AI type from ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', which results from Fanatic Militarists with a spiritualist or egalitarian bent. Ordinarily, Militaristic [=AIs=] have no particular negative opinion of Pacifists; if their other ethos match closely enough, they may even become allies. Honorbound Warriors are unique in ''hating'' pacifism, willingly going out of their way to antagonize a species that professes anti-violence philosophies, [[MartialPacifist even if that species can and will defend itself if forced]]. Earn their trust, though, and the "Honorbound" half kicks in -- they make steadfast allies.
