* Prince Acroyear of the Acroyears, from Marvel's toy-licensed comic, ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}''. Worth noting because he's one of the earliest mass-market appearances of the Proud Warrior Race Guy as a stock crew member on a SpaceOpera CoolShip. It's also worth noting that he's portrayed as dark-skinned, despite otherwise-alien features -- i.e., "played by an African-American". That's not just incidental, either: a major plot point has his [[EvilAlbino albino brother]] driven to madness/evil/betrayal by his perceived inferiority.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The Dothraki live to conquer. They have no economy except gifts, tribute, and plunder, and defeat means a TraumaticHaircut. To them, any man who cannot ride is no man at all, and a dead khal is succeeded only by the strongest warrior(s) among his followers.
** The ironborn take pride in being reavers. Traditionally, they do not wear jewelry not won in battle and prefer raiding to siegecraft and seamanship to horsemanship. The Greyjoy words, "We Do Not Sow," brag that they live by plunder rather than labour.
** The wildlings believe that you take what you can get and keep what you can hold, which is why they fight each other as much as the Night's Watch and rarely present much of a threat to the Seven Kingdoms.

** In the first few episodes, this actually seemed to be Sokka's defining trait, though it was later [[TheSmartGuy overshadowed]] [[PluckyComicRelief by]] [[DeadpanSnarker others]]. By WordOfGod's own admission, his personality changed for the better due to Jack De Sena's voice acting.

*** The Narn are a particularly nuanced case. Pretty much every Narn with any screen time is shown to be a fierce fighter, including and especially [[{{Ambadassador}} G'Kar]] - but it's far from the only thing they care about, and we rarely meet any Narn with a boilerplate "stoic warrior" personality. They're not proud of being warriors because they're naturally soldierly or because it's their designated [[PlanetOfHats hat]], but because, within living memory, they shook off a 100-year occupation by the vastly technologically superior Centauri through a war of attrition, and they're not keen to let anyone forget the accomplishment or the grievance.

* The Iop race from ''WesternAnimation/Wakfu'' has a rather scrap-happy culture, to the point that even the deity for which their race was named liked duking out matters on the mortal plane so much that it decided to stay there as a [[PhysicalGod physical incarnation]] [[spoiler:who, as it turns out, was Sadlygrove all along]]. The Iops are often derided by other races for being of limited intellect, and they tend to be delighted to find themselves in fights of even suicidal odds. Adding to this, the fact that Sadlygrove [[spoiler:proposed to Eva with a set of engagement ''knuckledusters'']] seems to place another layer of cultural significance to the Iop's boisterousness.

** 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. 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.

[[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!

* The Teblor from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' are a ProudWarriorRace, and Karsa starts as one of the proudest. Even as he moves away from their customs, he doesn't lose his relish for combat, though he is not averse to learning from other people and cultures as time goes on.

** The Seguleh challenge everyone who they perceive to be a strong fighter. To rise in their society they have to challenge people who are stronger than them. If they win, they will then take that person's place. Indivitual rank is indicated by the number of marks on their masks; the fewer marks, the higher the rank.

** The Sangheili/Elites play up the "Proud" aspects of this trope. Heck, the scientific name for the Sangheili is given as "Macto Cognatus", which means "I glorify my kin" in Latin. In particular, their portrayal in the book ''Literature/HaloTheColtProtocol'' takes this to extremes; think of Imperial Japan on crack.
