* Clem from ''TheSuffering''.
* Arcturus Mengsk of ''{{Starcraft}}'' is portrayed as one, with him going so far as to wear clothes resembling a CSA general's outfit. Ironically, the corrupt government he overthrows (only to replace as equally-corrupt) is called the Confederacy, and its flag looks exactly like you'd think.

* In his "Groundhog Day Explained" video CGPGrey tells about Georgia's resident groundhog seasonal predictor "General Beauregard Lee, who one must assume has stylish facial hair and fans himself on the veranda of his plantation home while drinking mint julep and pining for the day when the South will rise again."

** Candie (Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio) manages to be even worse: his hobbies include the study of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrenology the racist pseudo-science of phrenology]] and forcing his slaves to fight each other to the death in �mandingo� fights for his amusement. We also see him [[spoiler:having a slave unwilling to fight torn apart by hungry dogs]].

* Like Hatfield, Sergeant Beaufort in ''Film/FortApache'' is a "fallen" example. A former Confederate officer, he enlisted in the U.S. Cavalry as a private after the Civil War. While not exactly conforming to the stereotype visually -- he is played by Pedro Armendáriz -- he is easily the most polished of the regiment's non-coms (some of whom had been officers in the Union army).

* The ''SportsNight'' episode "Six Southern Gentlemen of Tennessee" includes two characters discussing that this trope as it relates to the Confederate flag and the history of the south. When Isaac points out to Danny that their CEO, Luther Sachs, is a southerner who likes to consider ''himself'' a Southern Gentleman. As Isaac puts it, "the difference, Danny, is all the difference"; the implication being that Sachs confuses his [[NouveauRiche own wealth and elitism]] with the class and personal nobility that is associated with the trope.

* Captain Leroy in ''{{Sharpe}}'s Eagle'' is an unusual example, being an American Loyalist fighting for Britain in the Napoleonic Wars. His family made its money on "[[CatchPhrase slaves, cotton and molasses]]". The working-class Sharpe calls him out on the first of these near the end of the episode.
* A couple of times, TheNightlyShow has poked fun at this trope. When discussing Mississippi's attempts to maintain a ban on gay adoption, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKv7DIFVdgM Beechum Grady]] (played by Rory Albanese) personifies this role during an interview in which he explains Mississippi's [[NostalgiaFilter "pro-yesterday"]] policies. This is later extended in a different segment about a [[http://www.cc.com/full-episodes/iukkmb/the-nightly-show-with-larry-wilmore-december-14--2015---confederate-christmas-card---ted-cruz-season-2-ep-02037 state senator's Christmas cards featuring the Confederate flag]] that features an entire table full of Southern Gentlemen (including one who doesn't seem to realize slavery's been abolished) going over Christmas card designs that all feature Confederate flags, with Mike Yard playing the OnlySaneMan at the table.

** Except neither Missouri or Kentucky are the South; they're border states.
*** Well, Kentucky is usually considered Southern. Missouri is slightly more complicated. The region of Hannibal was very pro-Confederate, and Twain was [[OldShame briefly enlisted in a Confederate unit]].

* Atticus Finch of ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' fame is a SimpleCountryLawyer and a shining example of this trope. Unfortunately, ''Literature/GoSetAWatchman'' reveals that he does have the racist views common to this trope (albeit [[FairForItsDay fair for his day]], at least when he was younger).
