** After the reboot (and Elias's subsequent erasure from the timeline) Sally's father King Acorn has become this. When an army of badniks and mercenaries invaded his kingdom, he confronted the mercenaries directly and attacked them with an energy sword and shield. He even held his own before greater numbers overwhelmed him.

* The setting of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' has an example in the unnamed king ([[spoiler:heavily implied to have been [[BigGood Ozpin himself]]) who ruled Vale during the time of the [[GreatOffscreenWar Great War]]. Personally leading the defending forces during the invasion of Vacuo, the decisive battle of the war, the King was so awe-inspiring in battle that some of Remnant's historians have attributed his actions to ''freak storms''. After Vale emerged triumphant from the war, he refused leadership over remnant, working instead to broker peace between the Kingdoms and founding the [[AcademyOfAdventure Huntsman Academies]].

* ''Roleplay/DestroyTheGodmodder'': Ikea, the king of tabletopia, was summoned as a boss. Not only that, but his entire army went down in three rounds. Ikea survived twice that length, then [[BadAss kidnapped the godmodder.]]

* "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. 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]].

* ''Manga/BlackClover'' has the Silva Family, a family that composes the Silver Eagles knights, some of the strongest mage knights in the Clover Kingdom, they are though, very elitist and jerks. This can be expanded to most royals, as nobles tend to have higher magical power and a lot of them decide to become mage knights.

* Probably how Charles sees his refusal to sign a bill into law in ''Theater/KingCharlesIII''. He argues to both Prime Minister Evans and Prince William that his duty as a monarch isn't merely symbolic, and that in practice his approval of a bill must be genuine or else it has no meaning.

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', this is inverted in Princess Luna's case; she ''wants'' to lead the Royal Guard into battle against the changeling remnants in person, but as the princess of the night, she is hopelessly tied down by mundane work (and, strongly implied, her sister) in Canterlot and forced to delegate military command to lower echelons.
