** The Space Marines ''used'' to be encouraged to be this back before the ''Literature/HorusHeresy''. The idea was that one day, they would have conquered everything, and being functionally immortal would have to adapt to lives of peace, so they were advised to study peaceful vocations like literature, art and such.

* Al'Lan Mandragoran (a.k.a. Lan) in the ''[[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]]''. It's almost an InformedAbility, since there is exactly one scene in the series in which he recites poetry, but given that he's rightfully a king one would expect him to have a certain amount of cultured education.

** Griffith, the WorldsBestWarrior, is also a man of learning with a bent for the philosophical, and fights to realize his philosophy. Unfortunately, it ultimately takes a dark turn in the NietzscheWannabe mold. Turns out he's not really philosophically opposed to the monarchy, he just thinks they're mistaken about who the real {{Übermensch}} is. (Hint: it's him.]]

** King David composes much of the book of Psalms in his free time from giant slaying and country-rebuilding. In fact, the only reason He Who Slew Hundreds of Thousands has an opportunity to become king is that the music he played could make you cry and the previous King had to hear him. He's also famous for dancing happily in the street once he brought the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem.

Modern Western culture often tends to think of Warriors and Poets as belonging to distinct, different and opposing groups. Warriors are manly men who like hitting each other and other simple pleasures. Poets are culturally refined wimps.
