** One of the early 4th Edition official figures was a female [[DraconicHumanoid dragonborn]] rogue that wore [[SoMuchForStealth a suit of shiny, golden plate armor]], while dual-wielding a dagger and a hand crossbow.

** Not that that stops Saber from showing up Fate: Grand Order as a Lancer and Rider, which both make sense thematically, but both are Saber ALTER. And the latter is her acting as Santa! Also as an Assassin under the name Mysterious Heroine X/Z where she is dedicated to wiping out all the Saber look-alikes.

*** ''Grand Order'' also features what is probably the least fitting class ever seen for a Servant. Berserkers are raging warriors who get major boosts to their fighting prowess at the cost of their sanity, the class of pure madness and violence. So a lot of people got surprised when ''Florence Nightingale'' showed up in said class, her natural headstrong personality exaggerated into reckless abandon to her task of saving people. While she does still pack a major punch, most of her abilities are dedicated to healing rather than the non-stop brutality one expects from the class.

* In [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=060313 one strip]] of ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'', Katie-as-[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Robin]] gets a kick out of reclassing every unit who could possibly be a [[ChurchMilitant War Cleric]] into one, including [[SquishyWizard Miriel]], who has no physical prowess and can't even lift [[AnAxeToGrind the axe]] she's been given as her new weapon. Also featured: mage!Virion, (no magic prowess), and Wyvern Rider!Nowi (her ''also'' being a dragon makes her extra weak to wind attacks)

The next comic also shows off knight!Tharja (doesn't let her exploit her strong magic prowess) and fighter!Gaius (lousy defense for a front line combatant).

** Belkar Bitterleaf of the Order of the Stick -- a ChaoticEvil halfling ranger with a level or two of barbarian, making him the deadliest three-foot-tall dagger-wielding [[MemeticMutation Sexy Shoeless God of War]] in the world. He also has fairly poor stats as a ranger, not even having enough Wisdom to cast spells.

His teammate Durkon Thundershield is a dwarf cleric, even though dwarves don't get the same bonuses as elves and humans in the vaguely-D&D setting of the strip.

** There may not be any half-orc paladins in this series -- but in the Enhanced Edition re-release, there ''is'' a half-orc ''blackguard'', Dorn Il-Khan, in an edition of the game where the [[BlackKnight blackguard]] was implemented as a class kit (basically, a variant on the vanilla class) of the paladin.

And No, this doesn't allow the PLAYER to select this combo. He's such a good example even the game refuses to let you copy it.

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' has Ogre Maneaters, ogres who've survived mercenary service in various armies around the world and kept the dress. Thus you can have a former Imperial soldier, a pirate captain (with a Gnoblar as the parrot) and a ninja. Yes, an ogre ninja.



* The ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' RTS series has Ogre Magi, who while inferior to the dedicated spellcasters, the Magi and the Death Knight, are capable of the same supporting spellcaster role as the Paladin, while also being an equal in combat.

* ''VideoGame/NetHack'' allows you to play as an orc wizard, apparently because the race is a bit of a {{Scrappy}} among players due to its poor starting equipment. Dwarves in ''[=NetHack=]'' will always fall in this trope. A proper dwarvish role like miner or blacksmith doesn't exist. The only roles dwarves can play are Archeologist, Caveman and Valkyrie. None of theese is very dwarvish. Other role/race combinations like elven Ranger or orcish Rogue are more appropriate.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' allows every party member to take ranks in every vocation, in any order they choose, and more importantly lets them keep all the spells they learned in that vocation. While it's funny enough to imagine the hulking Carver in mage robes (or healing someone) or the diminutive Nevan as a gladiator, the combat potential is awe-inspiring, allowing for teams of GlassCannon that can revive each other at will, or StoneWalls that take forever to bring to low health only to fully heal themselves in one go...

* There are a few Hutt [[WarriorMonk Jedi]] in the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, which runs rather counter to their reputation as sleazy gangster slugs.

At least one of those Hutt Jedi fell to TheDarkSide, though. There was also a Hutt Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic...and while "politician" might not seem such an out-of-place occupation for a sleazy gangster slug, Chancellor Blotus was known for being noble and utterly incorruptible, and one of the Republic's finest leaders in its 25,000 year history.
