** The Water Tribes are also a culture based around warrior-hood. When a tribesman comes of age, they go through a series challenges to prove themselves warriors. Sokka himself underwent this rite of passage and proved himself.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]], the ancestors of the pegasi (a mish-mash of ancient Greek, Spartan, Roman, and conquistador imagery) are depicted as such a culture, exemplified by their domineering, militaristic leader Commander Hurricane, who even describes [[ViewerGenderConfusion his/her]] people as "a mighty tribe of warriors". (And does [[TheLadEtte Rainbow]] [[BoisterousBruiser Dash]] ''ever'' play it up.) A large number of the pegasi with speaking parts in the present day also seem to be part of the military in some capacity, suggesting they haven't entirely shed this characterization.

We see this in action in the fourth season [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilight's Kingdom]] 2-parter; Tirek picked off the Earth Pony and Unicorn communities piecemeal, but the entire pegasus race mustered together and charged him head-on.

** Their main rivals, the [[LizardFolk Trandoshans]], take this to an even further degree, with an entire culture based around amassing as many points as possible by hunting and killing powerful game. Failure to do so results in all points being revoked, essentially making an individual worthless unless they manage to regain those points by revenge-killing the target that originally caused them to lose the points. This explains why so many hire themselves out as mercenaries, bounty hunters, and assassins; while most are generally violent and completely amoral, their most famous representative, the [[PsychoForHire psychopathic]] bounty hunter Bossk, takes this to a whole new level. Hunting non-sentient big game qualified for points as well, so long as it was dangerous enough to be life-threatening, but Bossk was one of many Transdoshans who specifically focused on Wookiees as prey, seeing them as the most dangerous game of all and thus worth the most points. The rare Trandoshan characters ''not'' to engage in such behavior presumably just didn't adhere to the Scorekeeper religion.

* Fezzik from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. In the film, he insists on fighting the Hero "as God intended; skill against skill alone. Sportsmanlike!" Westley replies, "You mean... I put down my sword, and you put down your rock, and we try to kill each other like civilized people?"

** In ''TransformersCybertron,'' the denizes of Jungle Planet are like this. Their leader, Scourge, even owes a little of his design to Dinobot.

* The Nadir in Creator/DavidGemmell's Drenai books, who live for war and, at the time period of ''Legend'', had spent most of their time engaged in inter-tribal hostilities until Ulric hammered them together into an army at swordpoint. After [[spoiler:Druss's]] death, some of the high-ranking defenders go and visit the Nadir, who are giving their fallen WorthyOpponent an honourable Nadir funeral; they abide by the terms of SacredHospitality when invoked, share drinks and stories with the leaders of their enemies, and Ulric even agrees to ensure that, when Dros Delnoch falls, [[spoiler:Rek]] is buried next to his wife rather than given a Nadir-style pyre or left for the crows.
