* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', given that half of rulers are {{Mad Scientist}}s, and another half have to deal with them. Titles are shuffled, though, for the same reason.
** [[LawfulEvil Baron Wulfenbach]] is often shown resolving disputes and coming up with schemes. He's also one of the best combatants in the series, leading some of his armies' assaults personally and out-swordfighting [[ActionGirl Zeetha]]. Is literally covered in scars. His disproportionate title comes up several times -- he could have declared himself Emperor Klaus I as well, and the fact that he didn't is one of the indications he's not a straight EvilOverlord character. Royalty has ''rules'' the Wulfenbachs see [[MightMakesRight no reason to follow]], and the royals resent Klaus' rule partly because he comes from a minor house, which is an important factor in the willingness of the Fifty Families to recognize a new Storm King.
*** The scars aren't because of all the action he gets into, though. It was just the ''once''.
** Gil, who fenced with monsters he had enhanced just for training, and was subject of constant drills as Klaus tried to make him the proper heir. After being asked what kind of [[OverlordJr Empire's heir]] didn't even built a DeathRay, he invents a LightningGun and proceeds to personally test it on an intruding mechanized army. In a recent chapter he managed to throw a MiniMecha with his bare hands after getting shot. He's not quite up to the Baron's level in the scheming department, but is under pressure to learn fast.

** Within the ficton of the 40k universe, the pilots of Imperial Knights are actual aristocrats hailing from houses of nobility on their respective homeworlds. They are basically written as ye olde timey knights riding horses, with their 40 foot tall murderbots functioning as their steeds. Even the hierarchy within the knight houses, both on and off the battlefield, is analogous to the political structure of a castle court, with a king on top and other ranks below him.

*** Not to mention, Elinor seems to be tougher than even Fergus, as she completely keeps him in line (even when he tries to express male dominance), and can stop a massive brawl of tons of badass warriors simply by her intimidating presence alone. That's ''before'' [[spoiler:she turns into a bear and whoops ass]]. And oh, yeah, [[spoiler:she kills Mordu at the end, something Fergus had been trying to do for ''years'']].

* Series/GameOfThrones : In general, royals and nobles actually fight in battles as soldiers. King Robert Baratheon killed Prince Rhaegar Targaryen in battle during his rebellion to seize the throne. However, he became an AdiposeRex and a notable exception by late in his reign. Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters rode their dragons into battle when conquering Westeros, as [[spoiler: Dany does in the Battle for Mereen. Jon fights in the Battle for Winterfell before being declared King of the North]]. This seems to be so commonplace that morale is significantly lowered if the royalty and noblemen do NOT participate in the battle. [[spoiler: Joffrey retreating to the Red Keep during the Battle of the Blackwater, and Cersei's refusal to make him return in fear for his safety, results in much of the city watch deserting and the city almost being taken]].
