The Creator/RobertEHoward ''Conan'' stories are Thud and Blunder done decently; ''Literature/TheEyeOfArgon'' is an excellent example of Thud and Blunder done SoBadItsGood.

* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' is the post-apocalyptic martial arts version of this, with a heavily-muscled, [[WalkingShirtlessScene frequently shirtless]] hero making mooks explode by the gallon of blood.

In terms of secondary and minor characters, expect to find at least one DistressedDamsel, plucky slave girl, or Amazon wandering about. If the hero has a companion, he will most likely be a LoveableRogue, a deposed prince, or an ex-[[GladiatorGames gladiator]] or GalleySlave. You can also pretty much bet that an ArtifactOfDoom of some sort will make an appearance. There will certainly be lots of EvilMinions running around for the hero to kill; the most common types are EliteMooks or a HenchmenRace; there may also be a PraetorianGuard or {{giant mook}}s.

* Cohen the Barbarian and his Silver Horde from the Literature/{{Discworld}} series are best described as an [[AffectionateParody Affectionate]] DeconstructiveParody of the trope, the deconstructive elements being most prominent in ''Discworld/TheLastHero''.

* ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'' in all of its various (books, movies, comics) incarnations. The (many) derivative works draw strongly on the Thud And Blunder elements of the original stories. However, the original pulps {{subverted}} it wherever Howard could sneak a subversion past the radar; Conan wasn't ''just'' a BarbarianHero, but a cunning rogue who, as often as not, survived by [[KnowWhenToFoldEm knowing when to cut his losses and run like hell]].

%%* ''Literature/TheEyeOfArgon''

%%* ''Literature/TheEyeOfArgon''* ''Literature/TheEyeOfArgon'' is widely regarded as the absolute nadir of the genre, with all the elements of this trope amplified beyond any literary sanity. This doesn't keep it form being entertaining in its own right, though.

* The ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' novelisations by Philip Athans reduce the original story to Thud and Blunder as much as they can, sacrificing plot in favor of action and actual action in favor of {{gorn}}.

* Averted in {{Berserk}}. Guts is a BarbarianHero who can eat monsters and small armies for breakfast, but he is probably never going to defeat the BigBad or gain any real redemption, because [[YouCantFightFate casuality says otherwise.]]
