Alexander despite being an intelligent and rational man, took what he wanted when he wanted it. After all what were you going to do, stop him? He'd like to see you try. Alexander would often party after conquering an area. His partying was so great that it reduced the native's food stores and left them in fear of Alexander.

* The {{Trope Maker|s}} and {{Trope Namer|s}} of CuttingTheKnot was the mythical, impossibly complex [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot Gordian Knot]] that, the oracles predicted, could only be untied by the future king of Asia. Alexander the Great tried in vain to untie it and then, when that didn't work, simply drew his sword and sliced it in two. Other versions of the story are the exact opposite of the trope, however, with Alexander finding a clever way to untie the knot without cutting it, like where he basically removes the main object that the knot was apparently wrapped around, thus loosening its entire structure; the equivalent of leveling a building by removing its foundation. By the ancient Greek definition of Asia, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatolia he did indeed conquer all of it]].

* His most bizarre "appearance" might be GoreVidal's ''Literature/{{Julian}}'', where PhonyPsychic Maximus convinces Julian The Apostate that he's in tune with the supernatural. One day, he excitedly tells Julian that he spoken to ''the'' Cybele, The Great Mother, and that she wants him to conquer Persia. His victory is assured by the gods, and she'll even send Alexander's spirit down to guide him. Julian swallows it hook, line, and sinker, even writing in his diary that he can hear Alexander's voice whisper "advance, to the farthest edge of the world!"

* In {{Traveller}} ''Rim of Fire'' there was a Terran commander in the InterstellerWars whose hero was AlexanderTheGreat. As the Intersteller Wars era does sometimes look like the relations between the Greeks and the Persians, it kind of makes sense.
