* King Damas in ''Jak3Wastelander'' fits this trope to a T, except for the fact that, as a ProudWarriorRaceGuy, he and the citizens of Spargus City have taken up arms against the Marauders ''long'' before the main character arrives. [[spoiler:And the fact that he doesn't survive to see the rebuilding.]]

* In the Film/MadMaxFuryRoad comics there's the "history men". Old men who remember enough (or are just good enough at making stuff up) of the old world that they've effectively become the minstrels of the wasteland, regailing listeners with tales of wonder from the old (Pre-Apocalypse) world or the bravery of wasteland warriors. Their bodies are covered with etchings of random phrases like "MCDONALDS", "COCA COLA", "[[Creator/JrrTolkien JRR TOLKIEN]]" etc, effectively making them walking dictionaries. a history man technically shows up in the movie too, but only in a pre-credits quote.
