For #30, you could make a spartan version of the "Painted/Warded Man" (runes instead of red glow all over the Spartan).
I'm not sure I entirely get the reference, but I think I know what you mean.

His whole body is covered with warding runes that protect him from demons and add some extra punch to his kicks.The "Painted Man" is a novel about a medieval world overrun by demons, which arise from the ground every night while mankind draws some runes around their houses to prevent the demons entrance. If the runes somehow fail, the demons kill the people inside. In the USA the novel is labeled "The Warded Man".
