* 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."

* 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).

* Hatfield from ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}'' is a down-on-his-luck example. After the end of the Confederacy he went west and makes a living as a gambler, but recognising Mrs. Malory as the daughter of his late commanding officer, he immediately starts to fuss over her. In a slight subversion of the trope, his courtesy to women emphatically does not extend to Dallas. He also has a marked difference of opinion with Doc Boone, a veteran of the Union Army, as to how the, um, late unpleasantness should be referred to.

* ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'': Rhett Butler is the TropeMaker. The whole point of the character was that he wasn't exactly a gentleman, but he still fits the trope.
** Ashley Wilkes, the other object of Scarlett O'Hara's affection, is a more conventional example.

* 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 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.
