* Another protagonist version of the Boisterous Bruiser: Haohmaru from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown''. He fights, he loves it, he likes boozing off with his sake, he tends to inspire a lot of the younger generations (like RedHeadedHero Shizumaru) with his stern advices about battle. In fact, if there is trouble on the land, he's usually wandering around looking for good fights here and there, and either the BigBad have to hunt him down themselves for their purposes, or he just approach them, ask if they're strong and fight for the sake of good fight, not quite saving the world (that's the job for the heroine [[FriendToAllLivingThings Nakoruru]]).

Added DiffLines:

* Arguably all the Tank-class characters in VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} could qualify, to varying degrees. Reinhardt is the straightest example, but the others tend to ham it up and... well, they're called tanks for a reason.

* Both Barret Wallace and Cid Highwind embrace this trope in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''
** Wakka from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX,'' and to a lesser extent, Jecht.
** In particular, Jecht's appearance in ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' makes him look like he inhaled a whole bag of cocaine at once.
** Sabin in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. "You think a minor thing like the end of the world was gonna do me in?"

** Galuf in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', a 'tough old cuss' who's always up for adventure.

** Snow from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Think Zell, but more...and with a [[GentleGiant fuzzy inside]].

** Snow from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Think Zell, but more...''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is something of a {{Deconstruction}}, in that other characters find his hotheadedness and stubborness annoying rather than charming, and it causes him to have serious lapses in judgement. Lightning views him as an idiot and isn't happy that her sister is going out with a [[GentleGiant fuzzy inside]].him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Mercenaries}}'': In the second game, Colonel Peng of the Chinese army is a brash commander who relishes the chance to face the West in a legitimate, face-to-face war and prove China's status as a world superpower.

* Another female example: Kanna Kirishima from ''SakuraTaisen''. She often manages to be even manlier than the male protagonist. She also counts in the animated version.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has [[BigBad King Asgore]]. Throughout the game, he's advertised as a VillainWithGoodPublicity and is noted to be extremely hefty and powerful. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope When you actually meet him, it's shown every moment before his fight that he REALLY doesn't want to fight you.]] He [[HiddenEyes keeps his head down]] as he fights you, and refuses to even respond to any attempts at talking to him.]]

* ''SoulSeries'': Arguably, one could call Yoshimitsu a Boisterous Bruiser. In ''Soul Calibur II'', most of his quotes at the beginning of a match are very threatening and menacing. His victory quotes, however, shift between CloudCuckoolander and Boisterous Bruiser.

** Another non-Berserker, the Axefighter/Warrior Bartre. Especially his ''Rekka no Ken'' incarnation, where he keeps wanting a rematch with his rival and love interest Karla and his "death" quote has him swearing he'll be back to action ASAP?

-->'''Vaida''': Look at that! Bowmen as far as the eye can see! Mark! Do you have something against me? Heh, you know better than that. Let me tell you, Vaida is not your average wyvern rider! Mark! Sit back and watch me perform!
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us many of them, most notably Basilio, Vaike, Gregor, and Owain. [[spoiler: (More meaningful once you remember that Vaike and Gregor can be potential fathers for Owain.)]] Cynthia might be a mix of this trope and GenkiGirl, [[spoiler: and she and Owain can potentially fall in love.]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is uncommon in that the BoisterousBruiser of the game is ''a magic user''. Sure enough, [[BlackMage the Dark Mage]] Odin loves fighting and is a very friendly fellow, and his special skill gives him increased chances to get {{critical hit}}s when he uses special weapons. [[spoiler: A completely JustifiedTrope because he is ''the aforementioned Owain'', who is travelling through Nohr under a SecretIdentity.]]
