Added DiffLines:

* Flint's Quartermaster Mr. Gates in ''Series/BlackSails'' is a highly respected and experienced sailor who is starting to feel his age, a fact Jack Rackham is able to use against him in their dealings.


* [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Poseidon]] in the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' series DEFINITELY qualifies due to him almost essentially being the trope namer, [[CaptainObvious what with being, you know, Poseidon.]] It mainly applies in the fifth book when he is defending his kingdom of Atlantis from the original god of the sea, Oceanus.

** Barnabas in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOdyssey''. As the name implies, he's a rather jolly figure who helps Kassandra/Alexios captain his vessel, the Adrestia, due to their inexperience. He very much leans towards the fatherly side of this trope, and despite his lax attitude, Kassandra/Alexios come to call him the most honest man they know.



* Robert Faulkner in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII''.



** Admiral Steven Hackett is this [[RecycledInSpace in space]].

** Admiral Steven Hackett is this [[RecycledInSpace in space]]. His influence is so great, he still manages to fulfill this role despite only setting foot on the player's ship once in-game.

This is a [[WoodenShipsAndIronMen maritime]] BadassGrandpa. He has endured [[AStormIsComing storms]], {{pirate}}s, [[OminousFog fog]], and all the [[SeaMonster perils of the sea]]. He has been in a BarBrawl in every port and he has never lost. Sometimes he is a DrillSergeantNasty to all the scurvy foc'sle swabs. Sometimes he develops a BigBrotherInstinct toward the PluckyMiddie. But he is a lord of the sea and all sailors must heed him or endure his wrath. Often wears a SeaDogBeard.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': When a sea dragon Grimm attacks the ship Blake and Sun are travelling on, the crew are stunned, having never fought a Grimm that huge. The captain observes that no-one has ever fought such a large Grimm before, and then calmly, efficiently, takes full command of the situation. He instructs the crew on how to fight, he strategises the use of the ship-board side-guns and main cannon, as well as turning the entire ship into a battering ram. He also takes command of the Huntsmen on board, instructing Blake and Sun on what he needs them to do for his ship to become effective against the fast-moving, flight-capable monster. No-one questions his orders once he takes over, not even the anti-social Blake or mischief-making Sun, and it's his tactics that result in the defeat of the Grimm, rather than any plan the protagonists come up with.

If he actually serves in a Navy then he's likely to cross over with OldSoldier.

Added DiffLines:

* Admiral Ledger from the FiveEpisodePilot Pyramid of Darkness story arc of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' is so "old navy" [[note]]Not the clothing store[[/note]] whales ask him for directions. He even gives his old superstitions of women being bad luck as a reason why he's not too fond of letting Lady Jaye on board the U.S.S. Flagg.
** Hector "Shipwreck" Delgado could be considered the U.S. Navy's equivalent of Han Solo, ready to join the fight, and usually fighting the enemy on his own terms when he's not being so salty, which gets him into occasional trouble now and then.

Added DiffLines:

* Seamus from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' will sometimes play this role when some salty exposition is needed, though at other times he's as oblivious as the rest of the cast.


* Davos Seaworth from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. He actually has seven children, as well as being an exsmuggler.
