* Every Briton in ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}} and the Britons'', complete with rowing skills, manicured lawns, wearing tweed and magnificent mustaches for their {{Stiff Upper Lip}}s, and of course decrying the fact that their adversaries are decidedly not gentle men. And that's just the original French version, the English translation takes it UpToEleven by having every sentence end in "wot?" and other SelfDeprecation jokes.

Start with one cup of [[SpotOfTea tea.]] Mix in a hearty helping of [[BritishAccents posh, formal, excessively polite-sounding Received Pronunciation accent, or at least how you think it is pronounced]]. No one ([[DanBrowned except those pesky British people]]) will notice. Add some StockBritishPhrases for seasoning, wot, wot. Throw it all in a top hat and stir with a [[HighClassGlass monocle]] over low heat for the 1000+ years in the history of UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire. Turn it out carefully, give him a name like "Sir Nigel Featherstonehaugh-Smythe,"[[note]]"Featherstonehaugh" pronounced "Fanshawe," or possibly "Thomas"[[/note]] and Bob's your uncle, you have yourself the [[IAmVeryBritish Britishiest British man]] to ever "cheerio" his way into the media-viewing-public's home. And no one ([[DanBrowned except those pesky British people]]) will be any the wiser that you're mixing dialectal phrases willy-nilly or throwing British slang around like Frisbees.

* Carl Clover and Rachel Alucard from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''.
* The titular character from ''VideoGame/TheMisadventuresOfPBWinterbottom'' isn't a nice version of these. He always wants something for himself and do whatever whatever he needs, even at the expense of others. He gets better.

*** Note that despite being very British, a lot of these characters are decidedly ''not'' 'Gentlemen': Terry-Thomas was famous for his peerless performances as the Gentleman's antithesis, the [[DastardlyWhiplash despicable bounder and cad]].[[note]] The difference mainly comes down to a sense of honour: villainous Gentlemen generally have it, even if they don't let it apply to their 'lessers'. The cad freely lies, cheats, steals and generally flouts the rules of polite society; other gentlemen will whisper in horrified tones that he is rumored to ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor cheat at cards!]]''[[/note]]
