* Leliana from the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series used to be a traveling Bard (or rather, a spy/assassin who disguised herself as a traveling Bard -Apparently that's pretty common in Orlais). She comes with the Bard specialization and will teach it to other Rogues if her approval rating is high enough. Additionally, much of her dialogue includes stories and songs she learned during her time as a Bard.

[[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition The Inquisitor]] can ask, and Leliana will offer, to give training on being a bard: it basically amounts to DoNotDoThisCoolThing because of how dirty and conniving bard work is.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', Rob makes living this way whenever he's not "officially" hired as Dinosaur Master. He even composes some songs, and they seem to be somewhat popular with people.

** Several different variations of skald (see the real-life entry) as a class or variant have cropped up over the editions. Usually they are better at a stand-up fight than an ordinary bard but lose out on the broad skillbase, magic or both.

* In ''Literature/TheRiddleMasterTrilogy'', Deth serves this function as the High One's harpist. Yrth seems to have as well, given that he was known as the Harpist of Lungold. [[spoiler:It really shouldn't come as a surprise that they're the same person, but, well.]] There are mentions of other harpists as well, such as Tirundeth, from whom Deth got his name, but they aren't as relevant.
