*One makes a brief appearance in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', having been charged by the gods to walk around singing “Norwegian Wood” endlessly until he finds the people who recognize the song, and deliver them a message. He's quite grateful when he finally does—his feet are killing him, and he desperately needs to go to the bathroom.

* The ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' have Fflewddur Fflam, an inept minstrel whose lute snaps a string whenever he tells a lie. On the other hand, he's a surprisingly badass fighter. It turns out he's also a minor king.

* Alan-a-Dale (voiced by Roger Miller) acts as the narrator and occassional participant in the action of Disney's ''Disney/RobinHood''. As he himself puts it:
-->Oh, incidentally, I'm Alan-A-Dale, a minstrel. That's an old time folk singer. My job is to tell it like it is, or was, or whatever.

to:

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Played with. Worldsingers are not storytellers, but rather a formalized sort of MrExposition. They teach about foreign lands in order to "make the world a smaller place" and bring people closer together. They therefore know quite a bit about history, religion, and politics, but very little about stories and legends. Doesn't stop everyone else from treating them like your basic minstrel, though, which annoys them to no end.

* Blondel the Minstrel, in the 13th century legend of King UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionHeart, went from castle to castle in Europe, trying to discover where his master was being held, by singing a song they had composed together, until he heard the king singing the refrain from his cell. (Note that this is pure fable; at no time was Richard's location unknown, as his captors wanted everyone to ''know'' they were holding him.)

** ''ForgottenRealms'' got classical (mentioned from ''DragonMagazine'' #74 on) character Mintiper Moonsilver "the Lonely Harpist". As footnotes in "[[http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/archfr/mc Mintiper's Chapbook]]" tell, tales of the AuthorAvatar "Lunargent" are excerpts from Mintiper's own adventures he deemed most interesting, yet even some sages think it must be an embellished compilation, because even for a legendary figure like him it's too much. He SeenItAll, traveled everywhere and gave a concert even in Underdark (for drow and local fairies) at least once.

* In the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' novel ''Athyra'', Vlad encounters a female one of these from the house of Issola (Issola are often courtiers, but it's suggested that this would be the typical job of a lower ranking Issola), and a later novel, Iorich, suggests he might have had an [[InterspeciesRomance affair with her]] at some point.
