** Also from the ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' games is Korgan Bloodaxe, essantially the evil equivalent to Minsc. A psychotic ViolentGlaswegian dwarf who utters phrases like "This be a grand enough lot! Mayhap I won't be needin' to kill ye all anytime soon!", Korgan sexually harasses other party members (particularly a very virtuous halfling warrior who finds him repulsive), gives terrible advice, and has the lowest charisma score in the game, but supplies some pretty funny dialogue, and, of all potential {{NPC}} party members, is easily the best fighter. (At least until ''Throne Of Bhaal'', when [[spoiler:[[BloodKnight Sarevok]]]] takes the crown.)

** Seems to be shaping up to be the [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of the recently-announced [[PandaingToTheAudience pandaren]] in WoW.

** Not a Berserker, but even more of a Boisterous Bruiser, would be Boyd from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''. His interactions with [[TheHero Ike]] are hilarious, though not quite as much as his [[SlapSlapKiss interactions with]] Mist.

** Not a Berserker, but even more of a Boisterous Bruiser, would be Boyd from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''. His interactions with Dawn'' is a strange example of this. Despite starting out as a BoisterousBruiser personality wise, he's actually more of a FriendlyRival to [[TheHero Ike]] are hilarious, Ike]], with some aspects of TheLancer [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation depending on your interpretation.]] Even more interesting is how Boyd becomes a lot more nuanced and calm post-CharacterDevelopment, even though not quite as much as he still bickers with his siblings and [[SlapSlapKiss interactions with]] Mist.Mist]] on ocassion. And he isn't even a Berserker; he's of the Fighter/Warrior class, and fights with a lot more finesse in ''Radiant Dawn'' than he does in ''Path of Radiance.'' Ergo, Boyd starts out as an atypical BoisterousBruiser, but progressively subverts it as he develops as a character.

* The [[NoIndoorVoice loud]], [[StuffBlowingUp explosion-obsessed]], [[LargeHam hammy]], HotBlooded BunnyEarsLawyer CloudCuckoolander GunNut that is Mister Torgue of ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' is Boisterous with a capital B. Funnily enough, for someone who come across as a TestosteronePoisoning-fueled DumbMuscle SpaceTrucker, Mister Torgue is actually an incredibly sympathetic NiceGuy with HiddenDepths and an amusing tendency to be extremely kind and polite to women and children, albeit at maximum volume.

* Oghren from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' fits fairly well too, being a drunken, boisterous sot and, besides [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sten]], one of the main tank fighters in the game. However, the game somewhat deconstructs the trope, as his tendencies have more or less ruined his life. He somewhat shapes up by the time the expansion rolls around, but only somewhat ([[LivingEmotionalCrutch or what else would the player character be there for]]?).

* The siblings [[BrotherSisterTeam Bran and Norah]] from ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues''. They are a duo of Barbarians, who are both fun-loving and easy-going when it comes to most things in life. Both quite enjoy hard battles and will sometimes be a little competitive over which of them is a better warrior.



* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': Canderous Ordo. Charges into a fight yelling things like "DIE!" and "This is gonna be fun." Is visibly the beefiest humanoid party member, and few things make him happier than a good, honest fight. He's even a GracefulLoser when it comes to his people being defeated by Revan; they wanted to fight the best, Revan was the best, and the battle would be remembered for centuries. {{Downplayed}} outside of a battle situation, as he's a reasonably polite fellow, just one that adheres to Mandalorian ideals instead of Republic ones.
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' has several. Vi is so fight-happy that the main reason she joined Piltovers police force was because it allowed her to beat up criminals legally. Braum is a kindly strongman who always helps those in need, enjoys a good fight and thinks Troublemaker Toss is the best game. Gragas is a drunk giant who only wanders into town for a good drink and a nice tavern brawl.



* Levi the Slasher from ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: Th Gears of Destiny''. As "[[BadassBoast the strong, amazing, and cool Material of Power]]" and the {{Polar Opposite Twin|s}} of the calm and reserved Fate, she is powerful, brash, [[LargeHam loud, proud, jovial]], and [[DumbMuscle none too bright]], and she loves nothing more than having fun with her may it be from adventuring or fighting. She's jovial enough that meeting her was enough to lift the spirits of the then depressed Fate, and her tendency to go off and seek challenges on her own for fun, and her tendency to go on her own and take on strong enemies for fun becomes very useful in [[spoiler:[[DeathWorld Eltria]]]] since she's inadvertently saving a lot of villages from monster threats. She also purposely sacrifices effectiveness for coolness in her fighting style simply because, as the Material of Power, she feels that her attacks should be big and flashy.



* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Grunt isn't quite as loud as most examples, defaulting to a growl, but he can walk the walk about as well as any other. It's telling that his individual meet-up in the Citadel DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' involves him having broken out of hospital (poorly - krogan don't climb very well), gotten drunk, climbed a monument on the Presidium, thrown a bottle of [[GargleBlaster ryncol]] at a C-Sec police car, then stolen it while it was on fire, crashed it into a noodle joint, and devoured vast amounts of ramen. There's also Ashley, who has no trouble boozing, fighting or both - her meet-up in Citadel is a drinking contest - but merges it with ReligiousBruiser, and James, who considers sparring with his commander to be an entirely acceptable way of telling his life story, flirts with everyone female he meets and enjoys a beer or three.
* ''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.



* Arguably all the Tank-class characters in VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} (Hana "D.Va" Song, Reinhardt Wilhelm, Mako "Roadhog" Rutledge, Winston and Aleksandra "Zarya" Zaryanova) 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.



* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': Shae Vizala, aka "Torch" is a boss fight one of these. She admires the player party as they fight their way through her island, and the fight with her involves her flying around with a jetpack and shooting as she sets the room on fire at various points, all the while encouraging the party to keep up fighting well in Basic and [[BilingualBonus Mando'a]]. All the more fitting as [[spoiler: she ends up with the title of "Mandalore" in her next appearance, just like Canderous.]]



* ''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.]]

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is a cultural trait of the Nords, a ProudWarriorRace of HornyVikings. Nords love to battle, are exceptionally good at it, and then love to brag about their accomplishments in said battle. They are also big fans for feasting, drinking, and celebrating.
