* Howie from the original ''Film/TheWickerMan'' believes in life eternal, as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ, and he gets a chance to throw his faith in Lord Summerisle's face when he's about to be [[HumanSacrifice sacrificed]]. Even [[AffablyEvil Summerisle]] compliments his faith, and tells him that he'll sit with the saints in Heaven after his death.

This character is a total badass and doesn't seem to answer to anyone. Oh, but he does. He devoutly follows none other than [[{{God}} the Big Man Himself]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment with much devotion]]. He studies the [[Literature/TheBible Good Book]], he does what it says, won't miss services, and is often deeply conservative (or at least as conservative as someone of his ilk can possibly be). He is not necessarily Christian; his faith of choice varies widely depending on the setting, and how devout he is may vary - from strongly to painfully religious. Basically, even the toughest badass needs to have some hope and guidance through this life.

** The Imperials of Cyrodiil have created no fewer than four empires, with two spanning most-or-all of Tamriel, on the backs of their [[BadassArmy elite Imperial Legions]]. While they do allow for native religious practices to continue in conquered lands, they also require their provinces to allow free worship in the [[SaintyChurch Church of the Nine Divines]]. Of them, Akatosh, the [[TopGod chief deity]] and God of Time is held in the highest regard, but Stendarr (the God of Justice and Mercy) is also held in quite high regard. With the [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence apotheosis of Tiber Septim]], [[FounderOfTheKingdom founder of the Third Cyrodiilic Empire]], into the Ninth Divine Talos (the God of War and Good Governance), Talos has also become a prominent deity in their faith.

* The civil war conflict in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' started because the Stormcloaks believe that Real Nords Love [[CrystalDragonJesus Talos]] (who was a man that became a god), and are outraged that TheEmpire has [[LesCollaborateurs caved to the demands]] of the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] and outlawed worship of the god-man.

to:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', with Nirn being such a WorldOfBadass, there are plenty of "manly men" (at least from the point of view of their culture) warrior-types around and nearly all are devoutly religious to at least one deity (or set of deities). To note:

** The [[HornyVikings Nords]] of Skyrim are perhaps the proudest of {{Proud Warrior Race}}s, and are still quite religious. While they have a long history as some of the greatest supporters of the Empire, they still practice elements of their old religion in which the chief deity is Shor (aka [[IHaveManyNames Lorkhan, Shezarr, Shep, etc.]]), the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] of the ''ES'' universe. Any Nord worth their salt hopes to die in glorious battle so their soul can spend eternity in Shor's hall in [[WarriorHeaven Sovngarde]]. When Tiber Septim, who was (in Imperial dogma) a Nord originally named Talos Stormcrown, ascended ([[MergerOfSouls possible with others]]) as Talos, he immediately shot to the top of the Nordic pantheon. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the Civil War
conflict in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' started because began when the Stormcloaks believe that Real Nords Love [[CrystalDragonJesus Talos]] (who was Empire, as a man that became a god), and are outraged that TheEmpire has [[LesCollaborateurs caved to the demands]] result of the treaty with the [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion]] to end the [[GreatOffscreenWar Great War]], accepted terms which included a ban on Talos worship that also allows [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] agents to patrol the Empire's lands to enforce it. As [[NoTrueScotsman any "true" Nord]] would rather die than stop worshiping Talos, this led the Stormcloak faction into seceding from the Empire and outlawed worship of fighting to be come an independent nation. Many other Nords, while they dislike the god-man.ban, believe that [[StopBeingStereotypical no "true" Nord]] would abandon a long-time ally like the Empire.

A subtrope is BadassPreacher, when said person is himself a religious leader. See also ReligiousBruiser for when this is used as for the humor/shock value of their contrast or ChurchMilitant, when the real man fights ''for'' Jesus. Conversely, the HolyHitman will quote AsTheGoodBookSays while he guns people down.

* The [[ChickTracts Chick Tract]] ''The Sissy'' discusses this trope: two tough guys rib on a trucker's "Jesus Saves" bumper sticker, until they get a good look at him and find that he's twice their size. Rather than give them a beating, the trucker treats them to dinner and explains that being a Christian doesn't make you a sissy and that JesusWasWayCool. It would have had a surprisingly insightful moral about not judging people by appearances and respecting others' religions if the trucker didn't abandon that topic halfway through to explain how everyone who doesn't accept his particular brand of Christianity is destined for hell.
