** YagyuJubei, grandfather (Sekishusai), father (Munenori) all fit this trope. They mastered the sword, but also took time to write books on the Zen in sword, and Munenori was a politician, even if an EvilChancellor.

* The Major in ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' is a [[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.

* ''Film/{{Underground}}'': Marko is a drug-running BoisterousBruiser during WW2 who also composes poetry for the Communist regime of Yugoslavia during Tito's reign. However, he wasn't nearly the patriotic hero he claims to have been.

* 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.

** Like their Nord cousins, the NobleSavage Skaal people of [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]] have this present in their culture, but take it even farther. Epic, primarily oral poetry is their standard means of passing down stories and myths. They are also a group of {{Badass Native}}s who manage to live in a place so inhospitable that every other group who has tried has struggled mightily.

** There's also Pella the dwarf warrior, who in one fight scene sings "The Rose" by Bette Midler while calmly hacking up enemies.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]] Vivec is considered one, and actually has it as part of his title: "Warrior Poet and Guardian God-King of the Holyland of Vvardenfell." As the mortal Vehk, he served the [[FounderOfTheKingdom legendary hero Lord Nerevar]] as a junior councilor and General. After [[DeityOfHumanOrigin ascending to godhood]], he would go on to serve as the protector of the Dunmer people from all manner of threats. He thwarted the malevolent plans of various Daedric Princes in order to protect Morrowind repeatedly, including using his [[PhallicWeapon "spear," MUATRA]] to slay the monster children he begat with Molag Bal, one of those Daedric Princes. He is also a prolific author, in particular penning ''[[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/36-lessons-vivec The 36 lessons of Vivec]]'', a [[InGameNovel series of books]] detailing his godly exploits in very cryptic and heavily metaphorical terms. (They're [[UnreliableNarrator quite exaggerated]] and MetaphoricallyTrue at best, with some outright BlatantLies at worst.) If one digs deeply into the stories, you can also uncover some [[BreakingTheFourthWall Fourth Wall Breaking]]. However, since Michael Kirkbride, who wrote the ''Lessons'', did not write Vivec's in-game dialogue, Vivec seems way too plain spoken for a poet when you meet him in-game. (It's also plausible, given the seriousness of the situation along with his [[spoiler:impending loss of divinity]], that he's dropped his [[AGodAmI godly facade]] a bit to be more plain-spoken and direct in SavingTheWorld.

** While seen as little better than HornyVikings or a BarbarianTribe by the other races of Tamriel, Nord culture fits. Yes, they are a ProudWarriorRace who greatly enjoys the thrill and glory of battle, but they are also a [[RealMenLoveJesus deeply religious]] and traditional people, with great respect for their Skalds and a strong bardic element present.
