* Dare we leave the ''[[SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} Main Man]]'' out of the list? He might find a new use for that hook of his if we do.

* The GoldenAge (later revealed as Earth-2) Franchise/{{Superman}} was one of these, in contrast to the SilverAge/Earth-1 Superman. This is a particularly funny (though justified) example of CharacterizationMarchesOn, as ComicBook/PostCrisis Superman is a GentleGiant who would probably have a heart attack at the sight of someone as strong as he is slugging people with such merry abandon.

* TheMightyThor is very definitely this trope, albeit with a more thoughtful side. His younger self, particularly as seen in the God Butcher arc, is this trope UpToEleven with a side of JerkWithAHeartOfGold / SmugSuper.

* ''LukeCageHeroForHire'': Luke Cage aka Power Man never avoids a fight and loves to punctuate every punch with a little trash talk.

** Once, he attempted to stop Galactus from devouring a planet he'd rescued, first by [[GroinAttack punching him in the dick]], and then ''trying to get the Eater of Worlds drunk'' on super-potent ale. It didn't work, but Galactus found the whole thing so hilarious that he left peacefully.

* Volstagg the Voluminous, one of the Warriors Three who oft accompany ComicBook/TheMightyThor on his adventures, sits somewhere between here and MilesGloriosus, depending on the story and when it was written.

* Volstagg the Voluminous, one of the Warriors Three who oft accompany ComicBook/TheMightyThor on his adventures, sits somewhere started as a solid MilesGloriosus but has strongly migrated toward this trope thanks to [[LetsGetDangerous some unexpectedly badass moments]] CharacterDevelopment. He now wavers between here and MilesGloriosus, the two tropes, typically depending on whether the particularly story and when it was written.is more comedic or more serious.

* ComicBook/ThePunisher adversary The Russian, a cheerfully crazed giant who boasts about how many "Levis and compact disks" he will get after killing Frank. The Punisher MAX imprint has Barracuda, who is basically the same character but smarter and African-American.

* Guy Gardner of the ''Comicbook/GreenLantern'' Corps and ''JusticeLeagueInternational'' used to be the team {{jerkass}}, but he got some CharacterDevelopment and now he's a Boisterous Bruiser. * VandalSavage is hardly one of these in the contemporary DC Universe; however, ''DemonKnights'', set in medieval times, casts him as a wandering immortal who hasn't quite turned towards world domination but is still plenty happy to get his violence on. Take when the tavern he and his friends are staying is beset by dinosaurs:

* The ''IncredibleHercules'' is usually portrayed this way in the MarvelUniverse (especially during his tenure in ''ComicBook/TheAvengers''). Notably, on one occasion he beat a supervillain to a pulp, went to a bar, got merrily drunk, and sang a song about how thoroughly he had beaten the bad guy. The bad guy then sued him for use of excessive force, with a video of the song used in evidence. Herc started singing along in the courtroom, and tried to get everyone else to join in. Hercules cheerfully bankrupted himself paying the damages, and then went off and got a job as a construction worker to pay his day-to-day bills. He then won (some of) his riches back in a poker game.

* Dare we leave the ''[[{{Lobo}} Main Man]]'' out of the list? He might find a new use for that hook of his if we do. * Snowflame, for all of his (''NewGuardians'') one-issue existence. Boisterous Bruiser-hood is more or less inevitable when you're a supervillain who derives superhuman strength from [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain snorting cocaine]]. * In the regrettably short-lived Topps revival of JackKirby's unused ''Secret City Saga'' storyline, this was Bombast's personality. Being very powerful and very histrionic are all there is to him; he's a Hurler, whose arms are like hydraulic catapults that can launch anything with impossible speed and force, and he tends towards loud and grandiose verbiage. How cool is Bombast? When he awakens in modern Chicago, he's scouted as a pitcher for the Cubs and it's remarked he could easily win them a championship singlehandedly. * Another Avengers-specific example (and a female) could be ''[[SheHulk She-Hulk]]''. Her solo series is usually more well-balanced, but when she's in a team environment, her fun-loving brawler side gets all the play. * ''SinCity'': Marv, though he ''only'' seems to be chipper when he's perpetrating or planning violence. Mickey Rourke, the actor who plays Marv in the movie, was said to have "lumbered into the room practically taking out the door jamb", according to FrankMiller, and he wrote down the single note: "Met Mickey Rourke. He IS Marv." * The GoldenAge (later revealed as Earth-2) {{Superman}} was one of these, in contrast to the SilverAge/Earth-1 Superman. This is a particularly funny (though justified) example of CharacterizationMarchesOn, as PostCrisis Superman is a GentleGiant who would probably have a heart attack at the sight of someone as strong as he is slugging people with such merry abandon.

* Volstagg the Voluminous, one of the Warriors Three who oft accompany TheMightyThor on his adventures, sits somewhere between here and MilesGloriosus, depending on the story and when it was written. * One of those female Bruisers is Plourr Illo from the ''XWingSeries'' comics. She's a pilot, but the Bruiser-ness shows much more clearly when she's on the ground. She's mildly insulting to her wingmates, [[AmazonianBeauty big and muscular]], and ''loves'' fighting. At one point a teammate tells her that they're [[http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/8443/blz07.jpg trying to keep a low profile]], and she says "I'll make you a deal. I won't beat on any of the resident scum unless they hit me first--or they pick on my friends--or I feel like it!" "Fair enough," her teammate says. She's also a princess with a backstory and arc inspired by the myth of Anastasia, but this doesn't damp her down. * Guido, a.k.a. [[MeaningfulName Strong Guy]] turned this into a form of art when he joined ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}''. * A third Avengers-specific example is Hank [=McCoy=], the Beast, who was significantly more of a [[IncrediblyLamePun party animal]] and bruiser during those days than the mannered, cerebral GentleGiant he developed into after rejoining the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''. Shortly after Wonder Man returned to life, Hank went to visit him and '''instantly''' regressed into his Avengers persona. Apparently his friendship with Simon brings out this side of him. * With the exceptions of old and wise Getafix, GiftedlyBad bard Cacophonix, and GuileHero {{Asterix}}, the entire male population of a certain little Gaulish village consists of these. The grand prize has to go to Obelix, who has huge appetites for everything - especially food, drink, and punching Romans. It's telling that when the Romans are subdued, the village inevitably descends into friendly but enormous brawls, typically started by VitriolicBestBuds Fulliautomatix and Unhygienix have one of their disputes. * {{Punisher}} adversary The Russian, a cheerfully crazed giant who boasts about how many "Levis and compact disks" he will get after killing Frank. The Punisher MAX imprint has Barracuda, who is basically the same character but smarter and African-American. * The {{New52}} version of ''Comicbook/{{Superboy}}'', definitely. Rose Wilson even moreso.
