** The Bard is joined by the very similar Skald in {{TableTopGames/Pathfinder}}, though the Skald is more combative and their songs cause berserk rage rather than the bonuses a bard provides.
** Several different variations of skald (see the real-life entry) as a class or variant have cropped up over the editions of TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons. Usually they are better at a stand-up fight than an ordinary bard but lose out on the broad skillbase, magic or both.

* The Jester from ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' fulfills this role in the FantasyCharacterClasses line-up, being a MagicMusic user who buffs and stress heals his allies with his lute. While he isn't a storyteller or very poetic, he also stress heals his teammates with a few good jokes and laughs. Unless he crossed the DespairEventHorizon, of course.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has Kass, a Rito who wanders the world with his accordion and will recite poems to Link, which are hints on how to reveal hidden shrines in the area. [[spoiler: His reason for doing so was due to his teacher's final request, who wanted to aid Link in the future when he woke up from his ressurection years later.]]
