* Most of [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Arnold Schwarzenegger's]] characters. The ones who aren't cyborgs, anyway.
* Most of the film characters played by [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]]. In real life and in the ring he was very charismatic and easy going.

* Master Chief John-117 of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' is apparently this (going by the books, which remarks he has short hair) but you never see his face so he's a SuperSoldier SpaceMarine, by and large. Fellow SPARTAN-II Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052 from ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' looks like this without his helmet so presumably John-117 has a similar look.

* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' is a deconstrutive version of this trope combined with a bit of FilmNoir protagonist mixed in.

* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' is a deconstrutive version of this trope combined with a bit of FilmNoir protagonist mixed in. Max's facial features were originally based on the squinty-eyed visage of Remedy lead developer Sam Lake but in ''The Fall of Max Payne'' he got a more unique look. By ''3'' he basically turns into a washed-up, fat version of this (especially when he goes bald).
