Less dark variations may include the particularly [[DarknessVonGothickName Gothic]] or the militaristic {{Badass|es}}, especially those that are a riff on Otto von Bismarck (a classic MagnificentBastard) or Baron Manfred von Richthofen, The RedBaron. Sometimes the characters with the name do not have a Germanic origin at all.
