* 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 Agorians in ''RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'' are an overexaggeration of this trope.

* 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.

* The concept of a proud warrior race was {{deconstructed}} with the Wolrog Empire, who appeared in a long ''StrontiumDog'' story when ''Starlord'' merged with ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD''. The Wolrogs are psychotic, vicious, cruel, sadistic, genocidal maniacs who live only for battle and death, and are feared and hated by the other races in the galaxy. They tend to kidnap innocent people to serve as captive soldiers or slaves to fuel the war effort. In the same comic, Wulf may be an example of the more noble variety.

Added DiffLines:

* There are some indications that the [[HumanAliens Castithans]] in ''Series/{{Defiance}}'' are, in part, this. Viceroy Mercado, an Earth Republic official, even claims at one point that the Castithans have conquered the homeworld of the Irathients, the Sensoths, and the Liberata, colonizing it and renaming it "Casti" (this contradicts earlier sources, which claim that Casti used to be a barren rock until terraformed by the Indogene and that Irath is a separate planet). The Viceroy also claims that humans need to learn to coexist and emulate the Castithans, lest our planet is also conquered by them. Some of the typical attitude associated with this trope is shown in one of the early episodes, where a cowardly Castithan runs away from a battle. [[TheDon Datak Tarr]] has him put on a rack of sorts in a public place, where other Castithans put rocks onto a plate that increases the torture. The punishment is meant to cleanse the guilt of cowardice (the alternative is death).

** ''''VideoGame/StarCraftHeartOfTheSwarm'' introduces the primal zerg, the zerg who were not integrated into the {{HiveMind}} and left behind on their homeworld of Zerus. Their philosophy/culture is a [[{{SocialDarwinist}} Darwinian on the principle of survival of the fittest]]. Their entire society basically operates around constantly fighting and killing each other so they can evolve and grow stronger.

to:

*** The few Judicator characters tend to act like ScaryDogmaticAliens, their tribes were nearly wiped out in the first game. While Phasesmith Karax, the only member of the Khalai caste to appear in any of the games, acts more like a ProudScholarRaceGuy, though that might just be him.
*** ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' introduces a third faction of Protoss, the Tal-darim, who follow strength and determine leadership via DuelToTheDeath.
