*** 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'']].

** 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.

* 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]].

* 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]].
