* The Kingsman organization in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' and ''Film/TheGoldenCircle'' has this as its organizing theme and aesthetic, not surprising considering that the movies are affectionate homages to Roger Moore-era Bond films.

Real British [[BlueBlood Gentlemanly]] behaviour is more subtle than speech or dress, involving the virtues of [[SacredHospitality hospitality]], rationality and [[TheStoic temperance]], the avoidance of irrational extremes, devotion to 'things held dear', rebellion against corruption, and [[StiffUpperLip courageous composure in the face of adversity]]. (However, some of these - like extreme composure - are sometimes seen in trope form). Female examples are likely to be an EnglishRose.

The fact that old school British upper class men were expected to be athletic while young, and highly competetive or even domineering, is usually left out of fictional descriptions of the type. Female examples are likely to be an EnglishRose.

* In ''Film/WonderWoman'' has Sir Patrick Morgan, the ReasonableAuthorityFigure among the British High Command, with his cane, suit, and flustered politeness. [[spoiler: This becomes somewhat dissonant when he's revealed to be Ares but keeps looking like that, including in the flashback to Ancient Greece. Even when he reshapes molten metal into armor so he looks like the classic comic book version of Ares, his huge mustache is still visible beneath the helm.]]

* Sir Leigh Teabing from ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode''. [[spoiler: Not that it stopped him from being evil]] ''Tea''bing? "Teabing" is an anagram of "Baigent." The Authors of ''Holy Blood, Holy Grail'', Michael Baigent and Richard Liegh (notice anything?) sued Dan Brown for ripping off a theory presented in the afore-mentioned book by them for use in ''The Da Vinci Code.'' They lost.

* Major Zero in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series is a slightly less blatant example, only hitting a few of the above traits. [[spoiler: Subverted, ironically, when he becomes the leader of the Patriots.]]

* Ferb's grandpa on ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', albeit with that show, it's more like a parody of the stereotype than anything else.
** Lawrence Fletcher (Ferb's dad) has this to say on the trope in the episode "Just Desserts" (while exaggerating his accent):

* England from Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld. [[SarcasmMode BIG suprise]]. He's a bit more silly than this trope usually goes, but he's proud of his children.
