** A noticeable [[AvertedTrope aversion]] of this trope among the samurai was Kato Kiyomasa. Unlike the norm, he disdained the arts and even outlawed participating in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noh Noh drama]] for the samurai within his domain with the punishment of {{Seppuku}}. This may have stemmed from him being a prominent figure during a chaotic conflict in the UsefulNotes/SengokuPeriod. His precepts in general encouraged a spartan attitude and discouraged beautification while samurai were an upper-class category that were likely to display this as [[ConspicuousConsumption upper-classes are apt to]]. That being said, he didn't go into DumbMuscle territory and still encouraged reading of non-artistic matters.

* Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar, MagnificentBastard extraordinaire if there ever was one, was not only one of the greatest military geniuses ever, but also a great prose writer and poet. Although his surviving prose works are still admired to this day for their clear, energetic style, practically none of his poems survives... however his fellow ancient Romans seem to have been [[BrokenBase divided over the quality of his poems]].

** Forde from ''Fire Emblem 8'' is one of [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Cavaliers]] and a very accomplished painter, as well as a good map-maker. Two of this three possible endings involve him becoming famous due to his artistic talent.

* In LoisMcmasterBujold's ''{{Literature/Chalion}}'' series gives us Prince ''(and possibly pirate)'' Jokol [[MeaningfulName Skullsplitter]]. It turns out "Skullsplitter" doesn't mean what we think it does.
** To a lesser extent former soldier, Lupe dy Cazaril, finds that poetry is the only way he can come close to describing his divine experience. (though he's the first one to admit he isn't very good.)

* [[TheUltimates Ultimate]] Thor. He used to be arrogant and [[BloodKnight lust for battle]] (not unlike the mainstream version...), but after maturing (and experiencing Ragnarok), he's become much more philosophical and thoughtful. More commonly, he will talk his opponents to death rather than battle them directly; however, he has been known to face down alien armadas, the Hulk, a [[CaptainErsatz super man]], and the entire team of Ultimates. Twice.

* Hawk from ''Series/SpencerForHire'' and ''Series/AManCalledHawk'' certainly qualify. He plays the Mbila, plays an excellent game of chess and often waxes philosophical with his [[MentorArchetype mentor]], all while fighting crime, {{Shaft}} style. Did I mention he's played by [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Capt. Sisko]] himself, Avery Brooks?

* The Major in ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' is a BadAss and [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]] of the highest order, but next to her day job as a counter-terror special forces commander she's also spending a lot of time dealing with questions about existance and reality. [[spoiler:In a kind of way, she eventually [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Ascends To a Higher Plane Of Existence]].]] Batou is much the same, though he doesn't show it quite as obviously.

* Tyrian of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' might be a LaughingMad, AxCrazy devotee of the series' BigBad, but he is remarkably eloquent between his hysterical giggles, and he has a penchant for the theatrical.
