Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The medieval knight who fights baddies, whether villains, knights or dragons, and in The Tourney, charms ladies without deliberately seducing them, behaves honorably, and saves the day with his sword; but also, any hero who behaves similarly. Invariably Lawful Good and honor bound. First appeared in the Chivalric Romance. He has a very high incidence of having a Bodyguard Crush and Rescue Romance.
Historical knights were first and foremost professional soldiers. They usually were of Blue Blood — or, if commoner-born, founders of a new noble family. note Similar professional, well-armed and armored soldiers capable of acting as heavy cavalry without belonging to the social class of knights also existed, the term for them was "man-at-arms". This term could also be applied to knights though - essentially, all knights were men-at-arms, but not all men-at-arms were knights. Their modus operandi was lance-armed heavy cavalry, which charged the enemy in full gallop on closed ranks. They often were used dismounted as well, when they fought as heavy infantry, usually armed with enormous can-openers such as poleaxes or two-handed swords.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A cultural trope in Europe since medieval times, most good knights practice something called chivalry, Honor, and Self-Control and occasionally chastity. Prone to rescuing the Damsel in Distress, or delivering her from false accusations, often whilst bearing The Lady's Favour. The Knight in Shining Armor was a frequent carrier of The Dulcinea Effect: medieval Chivalric Romances, indeed, portrayed knights who fell in love with a princesse lointaine merely on hearing her described, without even seeing her - though his love and heroism usually won her heart. Another occupational hazard is Chronic Hero Syndrome, Knights Errant being charged to Walk the Earth righting wrongs until a worthy quest shows up. Oh, and he will Save the Princess, usually from dragons.
This is often invoked to describe a man who acts chivalrously toward women. The term may be used in more cynical works to indicate a Wide-Eyed Idealist. Even the Ur-Example of the straight usage of trope, King Arthur, messed around with it a lot. The one-two punch of Disney and Dungeons & Dragons saw this trope's stock rise like crazy.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The "shining" originally referred to the way his armor and weapons were kept in good condition, as opposed to the rust that accumulated for less competent knights. Most knights will be depicted wearing plate armor, despite it appearing relatively late in the era of knights.
When Prince Charming is a Knight in Shining Armor he's the Warrior Prince. Prince Charmless, on the other hand would not be a knight by choice.
See Lord Error-Prone and Miles Gloriosus for common variations, played with tropes, and parodies and Knight in Sour Armor for what happens when the world fails to live up to their standards, but they keep on being good anyway. If the knight is too dedicated to his ideals and code, he may become a Knight Templar. If he likes fighting a bit too much, he is in danger of becoming a Blood Knight. A knight who is shiny for one person in particular is The Champion. A knight that gets magical powers as a reward for this goodness is almost certainly The Paladin to boot.
If the Knight in Shining Armor wanders the land seeking evil to slay, then he's also a Knight Errant.
Animated Armor will appear as this, all the way to The Reveal.
Subtrope to Ideal Hero. See also Shining Goodness. Compare the gentleman's Old-School Chivalry. Compare and contrast the Dogged Nice Guy. A white knight is an internet persona who wants to be this.
An Officer and a Gentleman is the modern version of this trope — very often even their direct genetic descendants as old noble families are grossly over-represented in all military academies around the world. With the notable exception of America, of course.
Before adding examples, remember that—despite the name—this trope doesn't necessarily have anything to do with a character's armor or its color. A well-behaved knight in black armor or even no armor could still qualify, and a character who just wears shiny armor without behaving in a heroic manner is not an example.

Sayaka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica aspires to be this - her love interest in this case is Kyousuke, who used to play the violin until his hand was badly injured in an accident. When she contracts to become a Magical Girl, her outfit (of the magical girls we see in the series, hers is the only one with a cape) and weapon of choice (swords) reflect this goal. In a series written by Gen Urobuchi, this quickly leads to tragedy. In a horrific twist, her Witch form, Oktavia von Seckendorff also reflects this by donning a knight armor, a three-eyed helmet, and a heart-shaped cape, symbolizing how her madness thoroughly corrupted her ideals.

Prince Merik Nihar of The Witchlands is a Deconstruction. Merik is a kind, noble, self-sacrificing man who doesn't hesitate to literally fly headfirst into trouble if it means saving others. Unfortuanately, because he's so noble and heroic, he's grown conceited and firmly convinced that he's his homeland's only hope for a better future.

Digimon: There is a large group of Digimon called the "Royal Knights". As the name would suggest, they are a group of thirteen Mega-level Digimon who all resemble a cross between a classic Knight and a mecha. They are supposedly a group of "good guys" who work for the God of the Digital World, but every one of their appearances so far has introduced them as antagonists of the Knight Templar or brainwashed variety. They're not all-exclusive to the group, though. A few of them have been partners to human characters in the series: Tai and Matt's Omnimon, and Takato/Guilmon as Gallantmon are two good examples. These ones weren't actual members of the Royal Knights, though— they were just the same "species".

Uryū Ishida in Bleach is an Archer in Shining Armor. Very chivalrous and generally well mannered, has a weak spot for women, especially Orihime, also tried to protect Rukia when she was powerless and even spared the life of his female opponent, mercy he doesn't show to others of her kind. Contrary to his popular image he is also one of the most capable leading characters in the series, having fought tough opponents and held his own against enemies far stronger than himself. The Quincy, people of whom he is supposedly Last of His Kind. also had a medieval Christian knight theme given to them by the author.

Monster has the female heroine, Nina Fortner, fantasize that her secret admirer must be her "prince on a white horse." When she is rescued by Tenma, she assumes the latter must be him. In reality, the anonymous "romantic" emails that have been sent to her were from her twin brother Johan.

Dark Souls III has Siegward of Catarina, as a slightly less bumbling and more badass version of Siegmeyer, and Anri of Astora, who's on a quest to defeat a great evil and wears the Elite Knight set. Darkly subverted with Prince Lorian, though; he was originally this, but after he and his brother Lothric Linked the Fire, he was reduced to a brain-damaged brute unable to even stand upright, aiding his brother in rejecting the Linking of the Fire and becoming the last Lords of Cinder you fight. Also subverted with Holy Knight Hodrick, who probably used to be this, but has since gone Ax-Crazy and joined the Mound-Makers, becoming a threat to anything that crosses his path.

The Once and Future King, heavily based on the Morte D'Arthur note  Thomas Malory makes a cameo in the last book as a young squire, sent away by Arthur before Camlann to tell the story of Camelot , points out the issues with this. Namely, Galahad is too perfect, almost invariably coming off as distant and self-righteous, to the point of being outright inhuman. He discomforts and annoys his fellow knights as a result, and comes off as rather less likeable than the similarly righteous (but more human) Sir Percival.

Slayers parodies this, and the Prince Charming idea. Both Lina and Sylphiel have an image of a prince, noble, heroic, handsome, blond, clad in white, riding on a white charger. Then they meet Amelia's father, Phil, who technically fits almost all the requirements (except the blond hair and he is not handsome), but shatters Sylphiel's fantasy of a prince into tiny little pieces. Literally shatters. A piece of Lina's actually bonks her on the head.

Saint George and the Dragon which came from the poem in The Faerie Queene: The Red Cross Knight is champion for Princess Una, traveling with her to slay the dragon which has been terrorizing her land. He makes certain that she's well back from harm when the battle begins. After the king rewards him, he says never to forget the poor and gives away the gifts. He does accept Una as his wife and inheriting the king's crown however.

Sir Mandorallen from David Eddings's The Belgariad saga (and its sequel, the Malloreon saga) is a textbook example of the Knight in Shining Armor; he embodies this trope, both outwardly and inwardly. Complete with a tragic chivalric love-from-afar affair. Eddings lampshaded the heck out of the trope, though: Mandorallen is heroic, brave and fearless, unbeaten in combat, honorable, truthful, and so on and so on. The first time in his life that he suddenly felt real fear (when he faced a magical opponent that he couldn't defeat) let to a kind of nervous breakdown, a self-doubt of epic proportions during which Mandorallen developed phobophobia, a paralyzing fear of being afraid. He eventually got over it, with the help of his friends, culminating in a moment when he kills a lion with his bare hands.
The other characters routinely tended to poke gentle fun of Mandorallen's utter dedication to chivalry, wondering to each other if he actually has any brains (answer: yes, to an extent. However, he has absolutely no common sense whatsoever) and people who met him for the first time kept asking "Is this guy for real?" and "Did he really just charge the enemy? He's going to die!" — "No he isn't. He's Mandorallen." Everything you need to know about Mandorallen is summed up in this exchange from Castle of Wizardry, wherein Mandorallen is escorting the Rivan Queen out to the center of a field to address over fifty thousand heavily-armed, potentially hostile soldiers during a very tense diplomatic stand-off. It's important to note that Mandorallen is speaking here with absolutely no irony whatsoever:
In the sequel series, he suggests to the rest of Big Guy Band - all barred from involvement this time around by the strictures of prophecy - that they should help their friends indirectly. Specifically, by going to Mallorea, a continent ruled by a single almighty Empire, and take on the entire Mallorean army. Barak, the Only Sane Man, just puts his head down on the table and cries.

Balmung of the .hack series (all incarnations). While the setting of the series is an MMORPG, Balmung specifically investigates circumstances which could easily get him hurt in the real world. However, he has a strong moral code on issues of lesser significance, such as a strong distaste for hacking and player harassment. He also has a penchant for swooping in at the last moment to save other characters:
In Sign, Balmung only appears in one episode, but rushes in to distract the Phase monster so that Subaru and company can escape.
Similarly, Balmung's introduction in the video games has him chasing down another corrupted monster and trying to get Kite and BlackRose to run away.
and in the Legend of Twilight manga, Balmung (Now a sysadmin) swoops down yet again and saves Rena, takes out the data bug, and disappears before they can even find his name. When the people he works for ban him from getting involved in this again, he quits his job and takes up arms on his own.
His status as this in-universe even extends to Newly born AI Aura taking his character template for use as an automated defender of the World.

Dark Souls has Solaire of Astora and Oscar of Astora. Solaire is an honorable, friendly Warrior of the Sun, and Oscar was on a quest to ring the Twin Bells of Awakening. Siegmeyer of Catarina wants to be this, but is far too bumbling.
Dark Souls III has Siegward of Catarina, as a slightly less bumbling and more badass version of Siegmeyer, and Anri of Astora, who's on a quest to defeat a great evil and wears the Elite Knight set. Darkly subverted with Prince Lorian, though; he was originally this, but after he and his brother Lothric Linked the Fire, he was reduced to a brain-damaged brute unable to even stand upright, aiding his brother in rejecting the Linking of the Fire and becoming the last Lords of Cinder you fight. Also subverted with Holy Knight Hodrick, who probably used to be this, but has since gone Ax-Crazy and joined the Mound-Makers, becoming a threat to anything that crosses his path.

Jedi Knights in general are also supposed to be this (the word 'knight' is in their name after all) but as noted in the trope description, this is an ideal that not every member always lives up to. That being said, Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace will defy the council to to help supposedly "pathetic" life forms.

Baldur's Gate: The series had a few - brash but idealistic squire Anomen, relentlessly pious and judgmental Ajantis, and the old but still fighting Keldorn. Oddly enough, perhaps the most outspokenly classical example is a female halfling, Mazzy, who comes as close as a halfling can come to a paladin in a Second Edition-based game. The Knights of the Noble Order of Radiant Heart were an order of this trope, whom the protagonist could join if s/he was a paladin too.

Fire Emblem:
Parodied with Sain in The Blazing Blade, who acts like this just so he can get women. The only result is that his comrade, Kent, repeatedly tells him to drop it and get back to work.
Played straight as an arrow with Seth from The Sacred Stones, Geoffrey from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, and Kent himself for that matter.
Camus and Arran from Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light explore the more tragic aspects of this trope:
Camus ends up having to choose between his love and his country, ending up going with the latter. This results in him being left for dead and his love being stuck in a loveless Arranged Marriage. When he returns as Sirius in Mystery of the Emblem, he devotes himself to saving Nyna, but in the end, even though he's able to snap her out of being Brainwashed and Crazy, he resigns himself to the fact he can't be with her, and leaves, never to return.
Meanwhile, a case of My Greatest Failure has led Arran to continue to adopt this persona even while terminally ill, as a way of Facing Death with Dignity.

In Cucumber Quest, due to being a work of satire that affectionately pokes fun at video game tropes, this trope is zigzagged.
The knights of Cake Town all wear hodgepodge suits of armor made of random parts, and are just little more than glorified servants for King Croissant and his daughter, Princess Parfait. Because of the king's low standards of knighthood, most of the knights are easily defeated by Peridot during Cordelia's invasion of Cake Town. The rest of them turn traitor while one, Sir Carrot, escapes.
Sir Carrot aspires to be a true knight and behaves according to chivalric traditions, but his crippling cowardice prevents him from acting like he should, to the point of becoming The Load while his much younger friends (Nautilus, Cucumber, and Almond) are much more capable than him. In fact, Sir Carrot's cowardice becomes a point of drama in Chapter 3 where Almond is manipulated into seeing him as a villain by Rosemaster and the others, including himself, lose faith in him. But the Nightmare Knight's intervention, combined with receiving a Love Letter and a love boost from a captive Parfait, causes Sir Carrot to regain his courage and level up permanently - gaining a gleaming, heart-themed suit of armor and a strawberry-shaped heart on his chest that allows him to summon magical weapons from it. And he defeats Rosemaster, too.

RWBY: Portraits of Nicholas Schnee in the Schnee Manor depict him in knightly armour. The design of the armour can also be seen in the Knight statues that decorate the house, and forms the basis for the Amor Gigas that Weiss defeats in the White Trailer and transforms into her primary summoning aide. Nicholas was noted as being a man of the people, who became wealthy only as a result of his quest to create a better economy and living conditions for the people of Mantle. The men who travelled on dangerous quests to find new Dust mines were led by him and they had a great deal of respect for his willingness to risk his life for others. He only gave up his adventuring lifestyle when it became clear to him just how much his wife and family missed being with him.

Flynn in Tales of Vesperia.
While Flynn is a very literal example on top of displaying the character traits, his best friend Yuri embodies the traits befitting this trope, while crossing it with Knight in Sour Armor, due to his dislike of the Empire and his time as an actual knight. He even gets a title in reference to the characteristics of this trope, called True Knight, and it's noted when you get the costume that Yuri is the most knightly of any of the characters, including Flynn (as the character who says this is talking to Flynn, who will agree with her).

Mytho from Princess Tutu, in his true form as the Prince from the fairytale the story revolves around, fits this trope almost perfectly (except he has no armor and rescues maidens while dancing on a magically formed pillar of flower petals).

The Dresden Files:
Harry Dresden, despite his continual disbelief at the concept, is a Wizard version of this. He isn't a firm believer in God, but holds to the "Tao of Peter Parker." He has great power and with it comes great responsibility. He will fight the monsters of the dark with all he has. While he will work with evil at times, he will never submit to it. He endures a shadow of a Fallen Angel whispering in his ear for years when no shadow has taken at most days, or weeks to make the person fall. His good heart and stubborn determination changes the shadow herself into something new, and should Harry have taken the coin at that point, would have been killed by the Fallen. Indeed, it goes even further than that: her Heroic Sacrifice to save him is a sufficient Act of True Love to actually produce a child of both their minds, a Spirit of Intellect. Which Harry is technically pregnant with. Cue Murphy laughing so hard she can't breathe.
The three Knights of the Cross are this too. Bearers of holy blades, each blade has one of the Nails that pierced Jesus Christ, and reflect one particular virtue, Hope, Faith, and Love, respectively. The Knights, male or female, are bound by His codes. Their jobs are not to kill the hosts of the Fallen Angels, but offer them redemption. Should they violate this, or break their word, harm an innocent, or other corruptible act, it threatens the very nature of the Sword and risks depowering it at best, or breaking it at worst. That said, nothing is lost forever and there is always hope the Sword can be reforged at the right place and at the Right time. They do not recruit people, nor do they force them to serve for their lives. Many Knights have taken up the Sword to help with one Crisis and set them down, no consequences upon them.
Michael Carpenter fits this trope to a T. Complete with kevlar-lined shining armour. He even meets his wife by saving her from a fire-breathing dragon. While he is an idealist, he isn't dumb. He can work many things out in time and plan accordingly. Even though it pains him, when he gets a call, he will depart from his family, trusting Him to keep them safe.
Sanya is the Atoning Knight in Shining Armor as he was once host to one of the Fallen, but a moral epiphany freed him from the demon's clutches. He wields the Sword of Hope, bringing it to the world and helping save many people.

Power Rangers: Any of the Rangers, although they subvert it occasionally, usually with Knight in Sour Armor.
Fantasy buff Chip from Power Rangers Mystic Force was thrilled to find out "knight" is an actual rank in the mystic realm and strives to reach it so he can be a knight in shining armor. Daggeron, the Solaris Knight, fits the bill quite well already, though again, any Ranger tends to. However, Daggeron's the one who gives the most stereotypically "knightly" lines like "I'd rather die with honor than live without it." Noble Demon Koragg, also of knight rank, gives such speeches, but it's actually his true self bleeding through the brainwashing; he actually doesn't want to fight the Rangers at all. His good alter-ego Leanbow taught Daggeron everything he knows.
Other more literal knights include the second Magna Defender of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy (the original was a Black Knight), Sentinel Knight of Power Rangers Operation Overdrive, and Sir Ivan of Power Rangers Dino Charge. Robo Knight of Power Rangers Megaforce was intended to be one, but programming flaws lead him to focus strictly on eliminating threats and not consider things like civilian safety, though he's getting better.

The White Queen: Richard of Gloucester adheres to the code of chivalry during his adolescence and young adulthood, and this is remarked upon ("[George] has none of Richard's chivalry" / "[Edward] said I was a fool for chivalry"). Absolutely no one questions his devotion to King Edward IV, as Richard is always dutiful whether it's peacetime or war. He also defends Anne Neville at the Battle of Tewkesbury when several soldiers assault her, which evokes Lady and Knight. However, Richard becomes a Knight in Sour Armor in Episode 7 after he's disenchanted with the king's debauchery, and he's offended when Edward attempts to appease him by bribing him with gold. By Episode 8, Richard's moral compass is thoroughly broken when the opportunity to usurp the throne opens up to him.

Thomas Marshall in Ironclad probably fits the mold the most within the story, being a Templar knight who is a Chaste Hero constantly harassed by a lustful noblewoman and wearing white robes in contrast to the other knights. He agrees to defend the castle from the invaders and certainly displays the "I fight so you don't have to" attitude.

He then spends half the game looking to break said curse, and the other half looking after her and making their shabby safehouse a much more pleasant place to be just so she's more comfortable. Bonus points for the fact his armor is literally bright, shiny gold.

Snow White with the Red Hair: Mitsuhide Lowen is a knight, kind man and excellent swordsman who is completely loyal to prince Zen who he is a retainer for. He also attracts a number of female admirers due to his personality and looks but avoids romance both through obliviousness and his dedication to his job as Zen's protector. Zen's other initial retainer Kiki Serian reflects this trope as well, though her stoic unreadable nature and the fact that she will have to give up living as a just a knight to take over as head of her family makes her an interesting take.

The Order of the Stick: All the Sapphire Guards are, but O-Chul even more so. The Giant describes him as "everything right about the paladin". He was already one in all but name in his prequel story, when he was just a regular captain in the army. He is honest and humble, stern but compassionate, courageous in the face of overwhelming odds, but above all else, committed to protecting the lives of everyone, human or hobgoblin. In fact, he alone is the main reason that the Sapphire Guard is such a bastion of righteousness. He initially tried to have the Sapphire Guard dismissed due to them being a bunch of elitist nobles more concerned with slaughtering evil than paying attention to the most obvious ramifications of their actions, but when told that wasn't an option, he joined them instead as an Internal Reformist. It worked.

For Honor has the Knights of the Iron Legions as one of its three factions, yet the only Knight class that approaches this trope is the Warden, who looks the most like the classic interpretation of a knight, wields a longsword, and serves as the viewpoint character for their chapter and afterwards ends up leading a resistance movement of the other Legions against Apollyon and her Blackstone Legion. Still, they don't wear full-on shining plate armor as the trope usually goes, instead wearing brigandine over their torso. There's nothing stopping a Warden player fighting as dishonorably as they want to win fights in the game however.

Throughout the series (at least until Skyrim did away with classes), "Knight" was a preset class. Knights get bonuses to the Blade skill, as well as Heavy Armor, Block, Speechcraft, and Restoration, following the trope closely. The class description reads: "Of noble birth, or distinguished in battle or tourney, knights are civilized warriors, schooled in letters and courtesy, governed by the codes of chivalry. In addition to the arts of war, knights study the lore of healing and enchantment."

It's worth noting that power armor marked as Brotherhood armor, and thus disguises the player as a member of the faction in Fallout: New Vegas is notably cleaner looking than any other power armor in the game. Even the same set of non-faction armor will look rusted and dirty by comparison. Fridge Logic is that if your Power Armor is well maintained, you must be Brotherhood. If your armor is all rusted out, you're probably just a scavenger that got lucky and found a functional suit in a cave somewhere. Guess where most, if not all non-faction power armor can be found.

In My Monster Secret the main characters' teacher Akari Koumoto has been holding onto the "prince on a white horse" fantasy for years, well into her Christmas Cake phase; though it's Played for Laughs like everything in the series, it's also seriously examined, since it's strongly implied that the entire reason Akari has never been in a relationship is because she's convinced herself that True Love will just fall into her lap one day so she doesn't actually need to do anything. On the other hand, the reason she has this particular fantasy in the first place is because as a child she'd always been either made fun of or treated like One of the Boys due to her unnatural strength and height, and she just wants a man will treat her like a feminine woman rather than being scared of her.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape: Ever since his father committed suicide and his mother Bonnie became morbidly obese out of depression, Gilbert had to become the man of the house taking care of everybody, especially his developmentally disabled little brother Arnie, whom nobody should mess with unless they want Gilbert’s wrath. He isn’t perfect, and sometimes chafes at everybody depending on him so heavily, but when all's said and done he loves his family. Towards the end of the movie, Bonnie gratefully tells him, "You’re my knight in shimmering armor." "You mean shining," he says. "No, shimmering. You shimmer."

The Fate Series has plenty of examples, several of whom were actual knights of the Round Table.
To start with, there is Fate/stay night's Saber, a Lady of War who believes whole-heartedly in honor and fair play. Fitting, considering she's King Arthur/Artoria Pendragon.
Fate/Zero's Lancer is very similar to the aforementioned Saber, and the two of them actually see each other as a Worthy Opponent and Friendly Enemy because of that.
Gawain is the "most honorable knight" according to Artoria, with being undyingly loyal and a bit of a chivalrous pervert. Turns out that part of the reason why he's so loyal is due to blaming himself for Artoria's death. Subverted in Fate/Grand Order, where he ends up following the evil Lion King due to his guilt over said death. However, the Gawain summoned by the Lion King is different than the one allied with the player, and the trope is again played straight in the SE.RA.PH arc.
Sir Bedivere might be the shiniest of all of them. He's unfailingly chivalrous, loyal and an upstanding guy all around. And even with his Heroic Self-Deprecation, he's still a very impressive Badass Normal.

Paizo's Pathfinder RPG has brought The Paladin full-circle with the "Shining Knight" archetype, complete with bonuses to mounted combat and riding skill. For those not wanting to add divine elements to it, there's also the Cavalier class.
Ironically, Alain Germande, the Iconic Cavalier, is very much not this, though he does excel at presenting himself this way to aid in seducing impressionable women. He's a Lawful Neutral arrogant Glory Hound Blood Knight who, though surprisingly charismatic, regards all others as expendable tools in pursuit of ever-greater glory and success.

Camus and Arran from Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light explore the more tragic aspects of this trope:
Camus ends up having to choose between his love and his country, ending up going with the latter. This results in him being left for dead and his love being stuck in a loveless Arranged Marriage. When he returns as Sirius in Mystery of the Emblem, he devotes himself to saving Nyna, but in the end, even though he's able to snap her out of being Brainwashed and Crazy, he resigns himself to the fact he can't be with her, and leaves, never to return.
Meanwhile, a case of My Greatest Failure has led Arran to continue to adopt this persona even while terminally ill, as a way of Facing Death with Dignity.

Dalinar from The Stormlight Archive is this to the core, and encourages his eldest son to be. This usually causes him to be regarded as an eccentric or fuddy-duddy by the other characters. Also, in the Backstory of the setting, the aptly named Knights Radiant were knights in literal shining armour.
Also note that the armor stops being shiny if you aren't worthy of it, and a few times when Dalinar is being particularly heroic, his armor starts glowing.

Dungeons & Dragons: The paladin class was based on Knight in Shining Armor archetype in general and supposedly Three Hearts and Three Lions in particular. Paladins are more like holy crusaders empowered with divine magic, though (which has its own trope, on that note).
Sturm Brightblade of the Dragonlance D&D saga is the epitome of this trope played straight except for not actually being a knight until shortly before his death. His fellow Knights of Solamnia are not quite so ideal but, with a couple of (important) exceptions, are generally good.
The Player's Handbook II from late in D&D 3rd Edition introduced the knight class, which is a lot like the paladin but without magical abilities. The knight's abilities focus on mounted combat, single combat with an opposing champion, and maintaining honor.
The 1st edition Cavalier class, introduced in that era's Unearthed Arcana, was closer to the "standard" Arthurian knight. For a while, the Paladin class was a subclass of the Cavalier instead of the Fighter.

Overwatch: Reinhardt Wilhelm is more of knight in mechanical rocket powered armor, but he still fits, and in fact invokes this trope. He sees himself as a modern day knight, and was previously part of an entire order of modern knights in powered armor called The Crusaders. He acted as the The Heart to the titular Overwatch, staunchly supporting the group, but calling them out the minute they started straying morally. His forced retirement was the first step to the organization's eventual collapse from corruption and infighting, leading him to become a Knight Errant. In his youth, he was a hot-blooded and reckless gloryhound whose actions led to the massacre of his mentor and almost his entire unit. He later deeply regrets it.
Also of Overwatch is Reinhardt’s Squire, Brigitte. While she was originally mainly tasked with helping maintain his Power Armor, she eventually develops her own and functions as a Paladin-esque Hero.

However, it turns out that he is actually the estranged brother of the series' Big Bad, Duke Igthorn, and lives in constant fear that he would turn evil like the rest of his family (before An Aesop is delivered to him, anyway) and rights wrongs as perceived atonement for his house's ill deeds.

Berserk
The Skull Knight doesn't do a lot of lady-charming, preferring to act as a Mysterious Protector to Guts and Casca, but he's perhaps the closest thing so far to a Knight in Shining Armor in the Berserk universe, particularly when he saves Guts and Casca from being finished off by Femto (Griffith's Godhand self) and the Godhand at the end of the Eclipse. Fan rumor is rampant that the guy is Emperor Gaiseric, the guy who unified Midland, who may have gone through a similar ordeal when Void was incarnated as a Godhand, explaining his stone-cold hate for the Godhand in general. And the guy is a complete badass to boot.
Griffith may be the leader of a mercenary company, and of common birth, but he very convincingly plays the role of the perfect knight. Most people say that the first time they saw him was like looking at a storybook hero come to life. He's A Father to His Men, wins battles for The Good Kingdom of Midland, saves Princess Charlotte when she loses control of her horse, and shows impeccable manners at social functions. It also helps that he's a Pretty Boy who wears shining armor and rides a white-caparisoned horse. Behind The Mask he is a more morally ambiguous and sometimes ruthless character. At the end of the Golden Age he pulls a Face–Heel Turn, and in the Millennium Falcon Arc he becomes a Villain with Good Publicity by returning to save Midland while cranking his Knight in Shining Armor act Up to Eleven.
Azan the Bridge Knight has a heroic disposition and combat competence despite being of middle age.

Amati of Spice and Wolf is actually a very successful merchant, but he offers a not-so-small fortune to alleviate the debts of the pagan wolf deity/traveling nun Horo, and rescue her from Lawrence. He'd only seen her twice when he made the decision, and he presents his intention with a written contract and a proclamation in front of a small crowd. Horo points out he's not really in love with her, so much as the idea of rescuing a beautiful Damsel in Distress in a knightly way.

The Legend of Zelda has Link who, while not always a knight by occupation, is nonetheless an Ideal Hero who's been saving the princess and the land of Hyrule from Evil Overlord Ganon since 1986. That said, his A Link to the Past and Ocarine of Time incarnations are stated to have descended from the Knights of Hyrule, the Skyward Sword version is in the middle of training to become a knight at the start of the game, and Breath of the Wild's Link served as Princess Zelda's personal knight.

Samara in Mass Effect 2, even going so far as to give a Knight Errant (perhaps with a bit of Samurai) as the closest human equivalent to her order. Though she has a strong ruthless streak, and is absolutely unbending when it comes to her code.

There's a rather nice paladin in The Threat from the Sea trilogy (never mind that he once was pious enough to carry the symbol of his divine patron... and then hurl it to sea), but though he eventually acquires a mount (sort of), he never wears heavy armor (after all, he's a seaman). Complemented with the usual chivalric knight for contrast. There were more traditional stiff ones (including some protagonists) in The Pools trilogy. And now there's Thornhold featuring Knights of Samular who "seems to think that Harpers and Zhents are fit to stew in the same pot" (which seems right to some extent) but seems not to be any less fit for the same pot themselves. They have an agent of a Chaotic Evil church among them.

Fantasy buff Chip from Power Rangers Mystic Force was thrilled to find out "knight" is an actual rank in the mystic realm and strives to reach it so he can be a knight in shining armor. Daggeron, the Solaris Knight, fits the bill quite well already, though again, any Ranger tends to. However, Daggeron's the one who gives the most stereotypically "knightly" lines like "I'd rather die with honor than live without it." Noble Demon Koragg, also of knight rank, gives such speeches, but it's actually his true self bleeding through the brainwashing; he actually doesn't want to fight the Rangers at all. His good alter-ego Leanbow taught Daggeron everything he knows.

Steven Universe has an entire episode, "Sworn To The Sword", dedicated to a deconstruction of this trope. Pearl trains Connie in swordplay, while also instructing her on the duties of knighthood as being "completely dedicated to a person and a cause", expecting Connie to be dedicated to Steven as Pearl was for Rose Quartz. Unfortunately, Pearl has severe self-esteem issues that she ultimately projects onto Connie, demanding that she be prepared to sacrifice her own well-being for Steven, just as Pearl had done for Rose countless times during the Gem War. Steven, Connie's "liege", is freaked out by the thought of Connie sacrificing her safety and self-worth for his sake and eventually gets through to her and Pearl by proving that it's better to fight together as a team, and gets Pearl to admit that Rose never devalued her and that she was just beating herself up.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court was written as a scathing Take That! at this trope (among other things), portraying the knights as little more than wandering bullies who picked fights with each other for no reason. The tales of their heroic deeds are entirely fabricated (and absurd on their faces, leading the main character to marvel at how nobody picks up on the Antarctica-level Fridge Logic), and the story features a lengthy description of how uncomfortable the main character is when he is put in his own shiny armor to go on his own quest. And still, in some of the final chapters, in which Camelot falls apart all around, the admirable knightly Lancelot of the original Arthurian canon several times visibly breaks through Twain's cynicism.

The Brotherhood of Steel from Fallout was founded to be a group of proud warriors that protect humanity from itself by securing and locking away any technology that could be used with disastrous results in the wrong hands. Many in the wasteland simply view them as holier-than-thou technophiles. They even have a caste referred to as the "Knights" that Depending on the Writer will either maintain the Power Armor and laser weaponry that the Paladins use, or are warriors that serve under a Paladin.
It's worth noting that power armor marked as Brotherhood armor, and thus disguises the player as a member of the faction in Fallout: New Vegas is notably cleaner looking than any other power armor in the game. Even the same set of non-faction armor will look rusted and dirty by comparison. Fridge Logic is that if your Power Armor is well maintained, you must be Brotherhood. If your armor is all rusted out, you're probably just a scavenger that got lucky and found a functional suit in a cave somewhere. Guess where most, if not all non-faction power armor can be found.

The Knights of Khryl in The Acts of Caine have this reputation as an order, which makes it all the more depressing in that their membership consists of individuals who either count as this, or Knight Templar. Caine Black Knife reveals that Caine himself has a secret admiration for the Knights and their most exemplary members that dates back to the stories he enjoyed as a child (which is ironic since Caine is a Combat Pragmatist and the Knights' code of honour is a primary cause behind how he spends most of the novel kicking their asses).

Other more literal knights include the second Magna Defender of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy (the original was a Black Knight), Sentinel Knight of Power Rangers Operation Overdrive, and Sir Ivan of Power Rangers Dino Charge. Robo Knight of Power Rangers Megaforce was intended to be one, but programming flaws lead him to focus strictly on eliminating threats and not consider things like civilian safety, though he's getting better.

The three Knights of the Cross are this too. Bearers of holy blades, each blade has one of the Nails that pierced Jesus Christ, and reflect one particular virtue, Hope, Faith, and Love, respectively. The Knights, male or female, are bound by His codes. Their jobs are not to kill the hosts of the Fallen Angels, but offer them redemption. Should they violate this, or break their word, harm an innocent, or other corruptible act, it threatens the very nature of the Sword and risks depowering it at best, or breaking it at worst. That said, nothing is lost forever and there is always hope the Sword can be reforged at the right place and at the Right time. They do not recruit people, nor do they force them to serve for their lives. Many Knights have taken up the Sword to help with one Crisis and set them down, no consequences upon them.
Michael Carpenter fits this trope to a T. Complete with kevlar-lined shining armour. He even meets his wife by saving her from a fire-breathing dragon. While he is an idealist, he isn't dumb. He can work many things out in time and plan accordingly. Even though it pains him, when he gets a call, he will depart from his family, trusting Him to keep them safe.
Sanya is the Atoning Knight in Shining Armor as he was once host to one of the Fallen, but a moral epiphany freed him from the demon's clutches. He wields the Sword of Hope, bringing it to the world and helping save many people.

Tis Time for "Torture," Princess: A semi-recurring character is the knight Louch Brittan, who's doing his best to rescue the Princess. He... doesn't really live up to the image, being rather below-average in terms of looks. He does indeed mean well, though, and he only really fails because each "rescue" is performed in a way that makes the Princess not want to be saved by him. For example, she rejects his attempt to use a teleportation spell because you Can't Take Anything with You and she would be left nude on the other side.

Galahad, fittingly enough for the best knight in the world, can even get his own bullet point. Because he was intended to represent knightly perfection, Le Morte d'Arthur writes him as a flawless creature. There is an unused chair at the Round Table that will kill any who sit in it, except the one destined to find the Sangreal. Galahad introduces himself to Arthur by sitting in it. Arthur then takes him to a stone with a sword sticking out of it (sound familiar?) that can only be pulled by the best knight in the world. Galahad pulls it. Arthur announces a jousting tournament. Galahad beats everyone he faces. The text makes several remarks on his virtue (that he's still a maid, that he doesn't wantonly kill), and he achieves the Sangreal, eventually being allowed to ascend up to Heaven.

The Elder Scrolls
Throughout the series (at least until Skyrim did away with classes), "Knight" was a preset class. Knights get bonuses to the Blade skill, as well as Heavy Armor, Block, Speechcraft, and Restoration, following the trope closely. The class description reads: "Of noble birth, or distinguished in battle or tourney, knights are civilized warriors, schooled in letters and courtesy, governed by the codes of chivalry. In addition to the arts of war, knights study the lore of healing and enchantment."
Though outside of High Rock, the Bretons are better known for their magical prowess, he Bretons actually have a strong chivalric tradition and most city states have their own knightly order to that end, as most prominently seen in Daggerfall. (Knights of the Rose in Wayrest, Knights of the Dragon in Daggerfall, as well as various Templar Orders such as the Order of the Hour who are dedicated to Akatosh, the God of Time, and the Knights Mentor, dedicated to the God of Knowledge.) Due to High Rock's cutthroat politics, how noble these knights actually are can vary wildly.
In Oblivion's Knights of the Nine expansion, the Player Character can found a new holy order of shiny-armored knights. Membership requires avoiding "Infamy" at all costs.
From the series' backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind who came to St. Alessia to serve as her divine champion in the war against the Ayleids. Or, at least, that's how he is remembered in Imperial dogma anyway. Pelinal subverts the trope, having also been a racist berserker who would fly into fits of Unstoppable Rage (mostly directed at the Ayleids) during which he would be stained with their blood and left so much carnage in his wake that Kyne, one of the Divines, would have to send in her rain to cleanse Ayleid forts and village before they could be used by Alessia's forces. In one infamous fit of rage, he damaged the lands themselves, which nearly caused the divines to leave the world in disgust.

A Song of Ice and Fire: While the series often subverts and even deconstructs the trope, it does contain a few straight examples:
Though she has some aspects of a Knight in Sour Armor, Brienne of Tarth is mostly this trope played as straight as you can get (being a woman in a job otherwise held solely by men notwithstanding). She suffers from deep insecurities, and and is struggling to reconcile the ideal of what knights should be with what most are... hence, some of the sour touches. Yet, she nevertheless shows the boys how it should be done. Heck, it rubs off on Jaime.
Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of Morning, was this as well. Eddard Stark considers him to be the best knight he ever met, and everyone recognizes him as the greatest knight of his time. Jaime idolized him in his youth and considers the day he witnessed Arthur's fight against the Smiling Knight one of the best moments of his life. Jaime in a moment of self-reflection wonders how the boy who wanted to become the Sword of Morning became the Smiling Knight instead.
In the prequel novella series Tales of Dunk and Egg, the titular Ser Duncan the Tall is a Humble Hero, but he might well be one of the most down-to-earth decent knights in Westerosi history. His rise to infamy in the first story, defending a common puppeteer from a murder attempt by the King's grandson has everyone calling him "a knight who remembered his vows", which is treated as a rarity. His ethics have a lot to do with his humble upbringing as a former street urchin brought up as a hedge knight's squire. These qualities have a lot to do with he gets the future Aegon V ('Egg') as his squire, producing arguably the most fundamentally decent King that Westeros ever saw.
While not a knight due to his religious affiliations, Ned Stark is a member of the comparable Northern social class of landed warrior elite and has a set of rigid moral standards that he adhere to. He wages a war against the ruling family in part to rescue his kidnapped sister, a Damsel in Distress held in a tower.
Minor character Ser Garlan Tyrell, called Garlan the Gallant, is a tall, handsome and superlative swordsman who exhibits a lot more morality in his brief page-time than most other characters in the series.

Code Geass:
Kururugi Suzaku subverts it; he initially seems like the perfect knight, but his attitude is formed partly by his own inherent idealism towards helping people and not letting the ends justify the means — a problem, to say the least, in an alternate Japan occupied by Britannia that is also a site for several violent armed rebellions — and partly by the repressed knowledge that he himself is guilty of the very thing he loathes by killing his own father at the age of 10 to make Japan surrender and keep it from becoming a permanent war zone. His lack of punishment for having done it drove him into becoming a Death Seeker that wants to die serving his ideals. Having acknowledged the memories fully halfway through the season, he freely admits to being selfish, hypocritical, and, in his own words, "despicable".
Xing-ke plays the trope straight; an honorable and badass swordsman devoted body and soul to his empress. On the Britannian side, Gilbert G.P. Guilford is this for his own princess.

In The Last Hero, one of the earlier novels (1931) of The Saint series, Simon Templar takes a back seat to his gallant and tragic associate Norman Kent, who falls in love hopelessly with Templar's girlfriend Patricia Holm (who hardly notices him) and at the end of the book sacrifices his life to let Templar and his other comrades-in-arms escape the current villain and fight again another day. A book called "Knights Errant of the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries" by Caroline Whitehead and George McLeod says it all: "Norman Kent is an archetypal knight-errant. Though formally a man of 20th Century England, he lives (and dies) by the Code of Chivalry. He loves totally his Lady, Patricia Holm — who, like Don Quixote's Dulcinea, is not aware of that love. He is totally loyal to his Liege Lord, Simon Templar. Like Sir Gawain in "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", Norman Kent takes on the threats to his Lord. Not only physical threats to life and limb, but also the sometimes unavoidable need to take on dishonourable acts which would have reflected badly on the reputation of King Arthur/Simon Templar is taken on, wholly and without reservation, by Sir Gawain/Norman Kent."

Jedi in general are a mix between (highly idealized versions of) knights and samurai. However, how much "knight" and how much "samurai" actually varies between cultures. Corellian Jedi, according to The Essential Guide to Warfare and Star Wars: The Old Republic, are actually a lot closer to European knights than the mainline Jedi, being descended directly from those who swore oaths of fealty to a Jedi Lord during the darkest days of the New Sith Wars. They're noted for being very inflexible about the law and justice.

Final Fantasy:
The Warrior of Light in Dissidia Final Fantasy takes the trope and runs with it. In fact, he's heroic, noble, unashamedly, unrepentantly, disgustingly chivalrous to the point of making his characterization seem a tad unrealistic. And it's justified too, as a side effect of him originally being born as a clone without much emotions. He's extremely loyal to Cosmos because that's all he's ever known in life.
As does Cecil, but that rather goes without saying (though perhaps not as much as the Warrior).
Cecil Harvey in Final Fantasy IV. Indeed, his turn from the dark side to this is one of the driving forces behind and most emotionally satisfying part of the overarching plot.
Steiner in Final Fantasy IX, to the point that he makes a clanking sound whenever he walks. He is also chivalrous to a fault, and is torn by his conflicting duties to Queen Brahne and Princess Garnet.
Basch in Final Fantasy XII. Lampshaded when Judge Gabranth wonders, in their final confrontation, how come Basch failed his motherland, and then the kingdom who took him in, but is still the one who keeps his sense of honor of the two.

In Magic: The Gathering, this is generally White's shtick. Though depending on the setting, it might range from anything from classical heroic knights to insidious fanatics and other deconstructions.
The White Knight, polar opposite of the game's Black Knight. However, game mechanics normally prevent the two from engaging each other in combat...
The Shards of Alara expansion features Bant, a plane of Knights in Shining Armor, who have a Fantastic Caste System based on the acquisition of sigils, which are marks of great valor and honorable conduct.
Innistrad has cathars, which generally dress up in trenchcoats but occasionally show up in more classically medieval armor.
Ixalan has a rare mesoamerican version, riding dinosaurs.

The Flight of Dragons: Sir Orrin Neville-Smythe is a classic example of this; the aged, but steadfast and noble knight dedicated wholly to justice. The page quote comes from the final battle; Sir Orrin gets set on fire by Bryagh's flame. He withstands the heat long enough to hurl the now-flaming sword into the heart of the black dragon, then collapses next to his fallen love.

The Deed of Paksenarrion: Played straight with the eponymous character in the trilogy by Elizabeth Moon. Paks is intentionally designed to be a Paladin from Dungeons & Dragons (see below), written after seeing so many Lawful Stupid Paladins at conventions. Also literally true: the armor worn by paladins will gradually become more lustrous whether or not they actively polish it. The gods have decreed that paladins imply shining armor.

John Boorman's Excalibur takes this pretty literally with Lancelot. In his first scene, his armor is buffed almost to a mirror finish. Lancelot's not the only one, however; all the knights seem to wear highly polished - and sharp edged - armor everywhere including bed. Including when they are entertaining company of the feminine kind. Oddly the women don't seem to mind. Maybe it's a fetish.

Game of Thrones:
Ser Loras Tyrell (see Literature above) literally has the shiniest armor in Westeros, at least in the first season, and apart from some Combat Pragmatism, acts the part of this trope. By the second season, his armor becomes rusty and dirty, expressing his increasing cynicism, and he does not smile as much. Although Loras is not romantically interested in Sansa, his adherence to knightly ideals plays a part in wanting to rescue her from the hell she's in, and he willingly enters into an Arranged Marriage with the girl so that he can whisk her away to Highgarden. Say what you will of his grandmother's and sister's ulterior motives, but Loras is more honourable than that. He understands that King's Landing is a terrible place for Sansa, and he sees her as a Damsel in Distress who is held prisoner by the "monster" Joffrey. Unfortunately for his non-yaoi Fangirls, he's gay.
Jaime Lannister looks exactly like this, but is actually a Blood Knight reviled as The Oathbreaker. As his physical state degrades, however, he actually starts trying to live up to the trope.
Barristan Selmy arguably fits this trope the best, and is presented as something of a paragon of a by-gone age. This becomes especially clear after he joins Daenerys, and his advising her to morally correct choices contrasts with Jorah's more coldly pragmatic suggestions.
Along with Barristan Selmy and Loras Tyrell, Brienne of Tarth comes closest to being one and plays this trope quite straight, despite being denied knighthood because of her gender, though her actual armour in Season 4 is black. She's dedicated, an excellent fighter, unwaveringly loyal, protective of the weak, noble and good-hearted.
Sandor Clegane so despises this trope that he refuses knighthood even when he joins the previously knights-only order of the Kingsguard.
The loyal Stark retainer Rodrik Cassel is a strong, loyal, and honorable Old Soldier and one of the few official knights in the North, though he lacks in actual shining armor.
Davos Seaworth is not a straight example, because he doesn't wear armor, but he's one of the very few unambiguously good non-Stark characters and is a knight. It's thus a welcome development that he has now become the leading retainer of the resurgent Kingdom of the North, together with Brienne.
The gilded armor Gregor Clegane wears as Kingsguard member is clearly meant to invoke this. Unfortunately, this character utterly averts this.
Jorah Mormont is not nearly as straight an example as Barristan Selmy (indeed, his armor's a rather dull, functional grey, reflecting his pragmatism), but he's definitely got his moments. Also Reconstruction in his case, as he began the series as a rather self-centered manipulator (selling out the Targaryens, to whom he had sworn an oath, to Varys and King Robert in exchange for a pardon). But when he finds someone truly worthy of his loyalty, and whom he also loves (Daenerys) he drops it immediately, Becoming the Mask and a rock-hard Targaryen loyalist, not to mention upright, kind, and honest, while still being acceptably pragmatic and ruthless towards the Targaryens' enemies.

Balian of Ibelin in Kingdom of Heaven tries really hard to live up to this trope after being knighted by his father, which is specially difficult during The Crusades while surrounded by religious fanatics and cuttroat nobles. Unfortunately, his morals get in the way of political pragmatism such as when the king on his deathbed requests that he marries his sister (whom Balian loves) in order to prevent her marriage to the fiance, Guy of Lusignan, who will certainly plunge the Kingdom of Jerusalem into ruin with his thirst for war.

Warhammer:
All noble Bretonnians aspire towards becoming true knights in shining armour...though as a whole they also tend to display all of potential abuses and flaws of the system of feudalism as a Deconstructive Parody of the trope. Grail Knights, who have been found pure in heart and soul and blessed by the Lady of the Lake, are said to all qualify for this trope by definition (though the aforementioned skewed sense of morality has some fans wonder if the Grail Knights are really more like their more ordinary fellows).
The Empire also has several noble knightly orders, but their modernization means that the chivalric ideals are not as predominant there as in Bretonnia.

Child of the Storm has several examples:
Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America epitomises the trope; noble, a superb warrior and deeply honourable, fighting for justice, most especially the protection of the oppressed (because he hates bullies), and pining after/mourning his lady love, he is frequently compared to King Arthur. He's also a Nice Guy who rescues kittens from trees, because of course he does. He is more ruthless than most examples, it has to be said, and has a certain hint of cynicism - plus, unlike most examples, he has a child out of wedlock, with Peggy, Alison Carter - who had children and grandchildren of her own, much to Steve's shock when he finds out. This devastates him, because he feels that it was an ignoble act on his part, before being reminded (repeatedly) that it takes two to tango, Peggy most certainly knew her own mind, and the rightful course is to stop avoiding his great-granddaughter, Carol, who idolised him and was deeply hurt by his rejection, no matter how understandable it was at the time. Nevertheless, it is not in the least bit surprising that he is knighted at the end of the first book, becoming part of the Order of the Garter.
Thor is a noble and charming Warrior Prince, right down to the shining armour. Especially given his increased dutifulness towards Asgard (not necessarily to the throne, however, as he's more than willing to challenge his father), dedication to protecting the small and defenceless, and slaying of monsters - these days, no longer simply for the thrill of the challenge. He's also and an all-round Nice Guy, a good boyfriend and a good dad, being dedicated to both roles - though it should be remembered, as and when his son gets hurt, that he is the God of Thunder and Lightning not Reason and Understanding.
Harry is an interesting variant, being a Decon-Recon Switch.
In the first book, he plays the trope Straight. thanks to his primarily idealistic nature, Chronic Hero Syndrome, and non-romantic variant on The Dulcinea Effect. It doesn't always pan out very well, such as when he's playing Bully Hunter on behalf of Luna Lovegood (it doesn't help if the bullies don't quite get why he's going after them) and anger issues, but he's always trying and will always help, no matter the cost. More than one character remarks that he is far too sweet and kind for his own good, and he stands out in a primarily jaded and cynical cast. As noted in the sequel, his Power of Trust brings out better natures in those who didn't even know they had them. Even his darker moments don't quite tip him over the edge. Indeed, his good heart is key in the first book's climax when he's relied upon by arch-schemer Doctor Strange to resist The Final Temptation. For his actions, he is also Knighted as a member of the Order of the Garter.
Near the start of the sequel, in the Forever Red Story Arc, the trope is Deconstructed. His impulsive leap back into the Red Room for to try and talk Maddie, a Living Weapon and Jean's stolen-at-birth twin sister around ends in disaster: he sees her (correctly) as a Tragic Villain and what he says has a real impact and makes her think. But a lifetime of ingrained obedience and programming isn't so easily overturned, and instead he spends days being horribly tortured, a mere prelude to a Trauma Conga Line that includes his Blank Slate body (his mind having been removed for safe-keeping by Maddie) being turned into 'the Red Son', used to pull a coup and construct an aggressive new Russian Empire, and repeatedly raped by Yelena Belova, the Red Room's Black Widow, in her twisted take on the Black Widow/Winter Soldier dynamic. This leaves him on the brink of a Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum, and even after he's talked down, he's left horribly traumatised and deeply bitter.
Yet despite the above, the trope is steadily Reconstructed in more nuanced fashion. He is still dedicated to helping a newly reformed Maddie, he is horrified when he's confronted by Cedric Diggory and realises how he's been treating/terrorising his fellow students and his bitterness mainly turns him into a Knight in Sour Armor. As Strange says, he is still the person who will always do what is right rather than what is easy, and it's why he's The Chosen One. He even states that as heroes go, Harry is unique. The Bloody Hell arc shows him as this once more, rescuing Carol from Dracula (who wants her Super Soldier blood). He faces Dracula twice - once in a literal suit of armour - but despite horribly outmatched again, he plans ahead, gets help, and (eventually) succeeds. All while resisting the temptation to tap into his reality warping Superpowered Evil Side. He continues to Reconstruct the trope, in appropriately nuanced fashion, and when in a personal silvery-white suit of Iron Man armour, Coulson codenames him 'Agent Galahad'.

When Vivian of Pretty Woman was a little girl, she would pretend she was a princess... trapped in a tower by a wicked queen. And then suddenly this knight... on a white horse with these colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword. And she would wave. And he would climb up the tower and rescue her.

The Talisman board game provides two examples of this trope, who reflect the chivalric code slightly differently: the Knight character, who is always of good alignment and who cannot attack other characters of good alignment, and the Chivalric Knight, who can aid rival characters in battle and cannot attack another character whose strength value is less than his own.

In the prequel novella series Tales of Dunk and Egg, the titular Ser Duncan the Tall is a Humble Hero, but he might well be one of the most down-to-earth decent knights in Westerosi history. His rise to infamy in the first story, defending a common puppeteer from a murder attempt by the King's grandson has everyone calling him "a knight who remembered his vows", which is treated as a rarity. His ethics have a lot to do with his humble upbringing as a former street urchin brought up as a hedge knight's squire. These qualities have a lot to do with he gets the future Aegon V ('Egg') as his squire, producing arguably the most fundamentally decent King that Westeros ever saw.

Oersted from Live A Live is a deconstructed example. Demon-slaying, princess-saving, the whole nine yards. The chapter is dedicated to show that even the noblest of knights can finally crack if there's enough hatred to corrode them, and in his case he cracked pretty damned hard.

Soul Series:
Doubly subverted with Siegfried; his outward design is evocative of the trope wearing bright white/silver armor, but alas he is a Knight in Sour Armor in personality. He dreamt of becoming this just like his father who was an heroic knight that qualified for the trope, but fell into some bad company and eventually turned into a monster. He became so consumed with his crimes that he spent most of the series seeking atonement for them, and nearly veered into Knight Templar territory in the fourth game. By Soulcalibur V, he found peace and most definitely can be considered a noble knight as his new mission is to defend humans against the Malfested.
Patroklos is similar albeit in a relatively less tragic way as he was initially an arrogant Jerkass who did morally questionable things in the name of "justice". He does grow out of it.

* Trails Series
In The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, Alfin considers Rean to be her knight in shining armor when he inadvertently rescues her at Pantagruel (he was forcibly taken there and both had no idea that the other was also on the ship) complete with Rean giving Alfin a Bridal Carry.
Arianhrod is a rare female and antagonistic example. Her entire aesthetic is that of a silver knight, with an imposing armor and helmet along with an absolutely massive jousting lance. Despite being an Anguis of Ouroboros, she's shown to be one of the most honorable antagonists in the series. She even has 'squires' in the form of the Stahlritter, a trio who share her knightly aesthetic and are fervently loyal to her.

The Cyber Knights from Rifts are a post-apocalyptic version of this trope, combining Mad Max aesthetic and advanced tech with traditional chivalric values and discipline. Ironically, their founder Lord Coake was a straight up knight from a fantasy world that was displaced to Earth and created the order for the purpose of fighting evil in all of it's forms. While he fits the trope perfectly, his principles do get him into trouble like the one time he refuse to lend aid to Tolkeen (one of the other main heroic factions of the setting) because they consorted with demons as last resort to resist an enemy siege. This action alienated his knights who went on separate ways and he went to found another knightly order to serve this purpose as the Cyber Knights.

The Warrior of Light in Dissidia Final Fantasy takes the trope and runs with it. In fact, he's heroic, noble, unashamedly, unrepentantly, disgustingly chivalrous to the point of making his characterization seem a tad unrealistic. And it's justified too, as a side effect of him originally being born as a clone without much emotions. He's extremely loyal to Cosmos because that's all he's ever known in life.
As does Cecil, but that rather goes without saying (though perhaps not as much as the Warrior).

Another good example would be Freed the Brave Wanderer (who would later become Freed the Matchless General). His appearance as a Duel Spirit in the anime shows his Heroic Spirit rather plainly.

In Dragonvarld, King Edward of Idlyswylde is inspired by stories about these, and wants to fill this role himself. He gets a chance, because there's a dragon to drive off and the fair Melisande to rescue. He doesn't succeed (since the dragon was play-acting and Melisande ends up raped and dead), but it's not really his fault.

Lancelot in Merlin (2008), albeit only briefly until he is thrown out for being a commoner. Meanwhile, Prince Arthur is becoming one, and part of the point of the series is Merlin helping Arthur become one. As of the end of series 3, Lancelot has been properly knighted as one of Arthur's new Round Table, as well as Gwaine, Elyan and newcomer Percival. Along with veteran knight Sir Leon, they all aspire towards this trope and prove their worthiness as knights at many points during the rest of the series.

The eponymous Leopold of Kate & Leopold is a nobleman from 1876, swept into modern times, who believes that Kate requires a chaperone on her date with her boss so he offers to go with her to protect her from his obvious intentions. When she refuses, he tells her boss, "Some feel that to court a woman in one's employ is nothing more than a serpentine effort to transform a lady to a whore." Imagine the look on a purse-snatcher's face when Leo rides him down on horseback.

Though he may not be called a 'knight', Captain America is as much a pure example of this trope as modern jaded audiences can stand. His classic outfit includes maille or scales on the upper portion, he carries a shield, and a modern Captain owes much to the role of a knight in leading his troops. In behaviour? No more noble or righteous 'knight' exists in the Marvel Universe - Ultimate Cap excepted, of course.

Shining Knight of Justice League Unlimited. Especially played up in "Patriot Act" where he and a mutated General Ripper do battle while they argue what duty to one's country means.
