* 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.

** The God-Emperor's sons, the Primarchs, all qualify as both his kids and due to most of them having become regents of their home planets. Or at least, they did during and prior to the Literature/HorusHeresy. Afterwards they become subversions as those who aren't dead, presumed dead, or might-as-well-be-dead have either vanished from the Imperium or spend most of their time doing Emperor-knows-what on some daemon planet in the Warp.

* ''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]].

Tywin Lannister is also a very hard-working and able administrator which is revealed as a character trait in his very first scene when he has a conversation with Jaime while skinning a deer, work he could easily have left to servants.

* ''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.
