* The one-off antagonist Rai-Dei the Blade of the Gung-Ho Guns in ''{{Trigun}}'' is basically a samurai on a WildWest planet. He is treated as outrageous and insane. He dodges bullets. He wears a fringed leather vest with hakama and his katana can fire its blade if necessary. In the manga, he does all of this on ''[[RuleOfCool rocket skates]]''.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' allows for these kinds of characters with a little artistic license. A character with a saber (refluffed as a katana), martial arts, and a trusty revolver is so easy to make that it can be done during character creation.

* The prequel chapter of ''Manga/SilverSpoon'' either manages to be an example or an aversion, depending on how you look at it, since the story centers on the lives of the ''actual'' Samurai Cowboys (and cowgirls) of historical Hokkaido. After the conflicts that began the Meiji period, many samurai families were driven north to the province of Hokkaido, where they began new lives as farmer pioneers ([[ThePioneer with all]] [[DeterminedHomesteader the]] [[SettlingTheFrontier attendant]] [[InjunCountry tropes]]...including an unfortunate fate for the native Ainu tribes).

* [[VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}} Zer0]] got a ''Film/{{Tombstone}}'' themed head and skin for [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/J1GIrb-wLxM/maxresdefault.jpg Community Day.]] Given that the game itself is a SpaceWestern, it's quite fitting. Zer0 also has Vladof class mods built around improving his skills with pistols.
