Ancient archetype. Also, Fighter. Many heroes are at least in part this archetype. Conflict is essential to stories, and war is the most outward form of conflict. Since stories require the characters to be active, we must not wonder that fighting, as the most obvious way of showing conflict, is often a part of stories, and that therefore many heroes do not achieve their ends, however just, by peaceful means. Famous Warrior: Achilles. Modern example: Mad Max. See Archetypes.
