* Greek Pantheon: Poseidon (The Hunter), Zeus (The Lord), and Hades (The Prophet). Oddly, this has little to do with their (admittedly more or less irrelevant) relative ages; Zeus is traditionally the oldest son of Kronos and Rhea, Poseidon the second, and Hades the third.

* ''CandyCandy'': The three men more influential in Candy's life fit fairly well. Anthony Brown is the Hunter (sheltered and kind, loves Candy for being free-spirited, secretly wants to see the world [[spoiler: but dies before he can do so]]; Terry Grandchester is the Lord (TroubledButCute, rebellious, good-hearted but immature); and Albert is the Prophet (BigBrotherMentor kind, world-weary, wise [[spoiler: and the secret leader of the Andree Clan]]).

* This is played around with in regards to the main three male protagonists in ''{{Slayers}}'': [[IdiotHero Gourry]], a wandering swordsman, is the Hunter, [[HotBlooded Luke]], a mercenary, is the Lord, and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Zelgadis]], a chimera, is the Prophet. Wanting to forget his bad past, Gourry keeps feigning for a future, while Luke has moved away from his roots as an assassin and lives day-to-day as a treasure hunter, possibly seeking a relationship with his partner Milina ([[AllLoveIsUnrequited which is shown to be nigh impossible]]). Zelgadis subverts his status as the Prophet, in that the intelligence and skills that he has, he does not bother to pass on, nor does he care; in fact, he [[InsufferableGenius holds a sense of superiority]] because of it. Also, while his desire to cure his body is a trait of the Hunter, it's because he wants to start over [[ToBecomeHuman and obtain strength from the ground up]]. Another unusual fact is that ages are in reverse; Hunter Gourry is the oldest, Luke's in the middle, and Zelgadis is the youngest.

* ''ThePrinceOfTennis'': Each team is a mix and match of the three archetypes. Captains and subcaptains tend to be Prophets, the youngest members (first and second years) are Hunters, and the other second-years and third years are Lords.

* ''Series/BreakingBad:'' Jesse is the Hunter of the series; desiring wealth and greatness but lacking the direction needed until he falls in with Walt. Gus, the ruthless criminal Kingpin is the Lord, controlling a vast empire that seemingly no one can topple. Mike, the hitman detective working for Gus is the Prophet, not concerned if he lives or dies, and only trying to make a better life for his granddaughter (and later, to a lesser extent, Jesse). Walt is an odd case; he starts the series as the Prophet, mostly accepting his terminal cancer and only being concerned with leaving behind a positive legacy in his two children (and later, again, in Jesse). But then as he rises through the criminal underworld and gains more notoriety, Walt's greed and arrogance actually causes him to ''regress'' back to being the Lord, now largely concerned with his new criminal empire and how to keep it.

Jesse).
** In the Mexican cartel this is shown in the Salamanca family. Tuco, the AxCrazy crime boss is the current Lord, greatly respected and feared by his organization and seeking only to keep his power by controlling Walt and killing anyone who disrespects him. The Hunters are his cousins, two murdering identical twins who seem unstoppable in their goals but are useless without the guidance of Tuco or Hector. Finally Hector Salamanca is the Prophet; formerly a deeply revered crime lord who's now been paralyzed by a stroke and confined to a wheelchair, only able to look on as his legacy is carried out by Tuco and the cousins. Gus's idea of torturing Hector is to slowly murder his family one by one, depriving him of his legacy.

** The Star Wars universe also has a twist on the three faces with the Sith; there is no Prophet. Since the Sith philosophy emphasizes one's power to change the universe around you and pursuit of it, it means that it's better to kill a Lord after he's overthrown rather than let him waste away and stagnate. There are always only two Sith, a Hunter Apprentice who learns and studies under the Lord Master. When the apprentice overthrows his master he becomes the new Lord and accepts a new Hunter to learn under him. Through the series Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) is the Lord in this equation, with the Hunter role being filled over time by Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and finally Darth Vader.
