* 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.

** Warrior caste Dwarves can also fall into this, although it's [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] with Oghren - when the Warden first meets him, he's an ornery drunk who killed someone due to his ingrained combat responses, and since that led to him being forbidden to carry weapons or fight, he's basically moved to the nearest tavern on a permanent basis. By the time of ''Awakening'' he leaves his second wife and their child to join the Grey Wardens, because he's not suited to live in society; all he's good at is killing.

* The Zentraedi race (divided into "Zentran" and "Meltran", or male and female, sides) from ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' are examples of this trope. It also serves as a bit of a deconstruction, as the the Zentraedi have no idea how to even repair their own equipment (''everyone'' is a warrior; no scientists and no engineers). This was intentional, to render them ineffective if they ever turned against their masters. Indeed, a major running theme of the series is the Zentraedi becoming "cultured" by learning how to pursue (or even simply enjoy) more peaceful pastimes.
* Klein Klan of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' is a Worf of sorts for the Zentraedi; while she isn't a raging berserker most of the time (although after a certain event in the plot she gets rather terrifying), she is ''extremely'' proud of her heritage and generally doesn't miss a chance to remind people of Zentraedi superiority in combat and warfare whenever possible, despite being fully "cultured". Hilariously, she also suffers from some of TheWorfEffect given how often she gets a hole blown in her power armor, and, to her profound and continued annoyance, she's only about four and a half feet tall whenever she's "micronized" down to human size outside of combat.

* ''Literature/PhoenixRising'': The Saurans, who greet each other formally with the armed bow, showing all their weapons openly.

* ''Literature/PhoenixRising'': The Saurans, who greet each other formally with the armed bow, showing all their weapons openly. Visitors to the Sauran King's court are thoroughly checked for weapons before entering the throne room -- and if they don't have any, they are loaned some out of a collection kept for that specific purpose, because going unarmed into the King's presence would be taken as a deadly insult, implying that he would be afraid of you if you were armed.

* Starfire from ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' is a Proud Warrior Race Girl, in the original comic version anyway. In her [[RetCon "first meeting"]] with the Titans recalled in a later episode of the TV series, she was this way too, making her "later" GenkiGirl personality seem rather puzzling.

* The half-man, half-dragon race of Shokan in ''MortalKombat'', the most famous of which is Goro. This is emphasized even more in the novelization of [[Film/MortalKombat the first movie]] when Goro is depicted as a nobler creature who ''throws'' himself off the cliff after being defeated by Cage, claiming he'd rather die than live in disgrace.



** The [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four-armed]] Shokan race, particularly Sheeva from [=MK3=].

* Wildstorm's ''Zealot'' is a pretty standard (female) example of this trope. Her entire race, the Kherubim, is equal parts ProudWarriorRace and NinetiesAntiHero.
