The General is an ambiguous term which may refer to:
- The General, a 1927 Buster Keaton movie.
- The General, a military science fiction novel series by David Drake and S.M. Stirling.
- Or possibly an entry from our extensive list of Military and Warfare Tropes, such as Four-Star Badass, General Ripper, General Failure, or something along those lines. (Just being a General is not a trope.)
