* Interestingly, Liu Bang, who founded the [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing Han Dynasty]] of China was one of these. Born to a family of reasonably well-off peasants, he was famous in his hometown for loving drinking and fighting. He was also famous for being a really charismatic guy, especially while drinking; he was such a good conversationalist and storyteller that people would stay at the bar way longer than they expected just to keep partying with him. This led barkeeps to pour him free drinks, because the people coming in and staying long because of him way outweighed the cost of the free booze to him. Despite this, Zhang Fei is more often remembered to be one.

* [[UsefulNotes/JosipBrozTito Josip Broz, better known as Tito.]] He liked to show off, and had an incredible constitution. During WorldWar2, he could march for really long distances without tiring, leaving his companions huffing and swearing as they forced themselves to keep up. [[BadassGrandpa And remember, he was around 50 years old then!]]

* [[HornyVikings Vikings]]. A favorite pastime during feasts was inventing short poems which either [[BadassBoast told about one's own accomplishments]] or insulted another as subtly and cleverly as possible. The proper way to answer such an insult was to counter it with a poem of your own. Someone pulling out a sword during such friendly banter was considered nothing but a brute, and as such not [[WarriorPoet a proper viking]].

* Charles Barkley was one of the biggest {{Boisterous Bruiser}}s in the NBA. He was an aggressive and physical player and was involved in several altercations both on and off the court (including, most unfortunately, an attempt to spit on a heckler and hitting a little girl instead). He was also gregarious and talkative, making the NBA's "All Interview Team" almost every year he was in the league. When the DreamTeam went to the Olympics in 1992, they were cautioned to stay in their hotel as much as possible due to death threats from terrorists. Barkley completely ignored these warnings and spent his evenings strolling around Barcelona, drinking and talking with the starstruck locals. When asked where his security was, he held up his fists and said, "This is my security."

* There are an unusual number of US politicians with this reputation, possibly because the US has this reputation in general ({{Eagleland}}, Mixed Flavor). As Website/{{Cracked}} put it, the Europeans treat the US as the guy they get drunk with and say, "This guy! He might be a bit crazy, but you know, he's all right."
