* Zach Hill, drummer of Hella, El Grupo Nuevo de Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and DeathGrips, plays so hard he wears out drums faster than usual. He also injures himself a lot playing, even once having to take a hiatus because of a drumming related wound.

* Interestingly, ACapella artist [[https://www.youtube.com/user/SmoothMcGroove Smooth McGroove]] is normally a drummer, which explains the hair and beard, yet he averts the trope by having a large following who are fans of him specifically (1.3 million subscriptions for his solo work on Youtube alone). On top of that, he further averts the 'brutish neanderthal' portrayal by being a gracious, well-spoken person and KindHeartedCatLover who often cameos his cat in his videos.

This is ''technically'' TruthInTelevision (since humans are, by scientific definition, animals), but in the non-literal sense this isn't always the case. RealLife instrumentalists can often pick their instrument in accordance with their personality. And regardless of any personality implications, drums sets require the largest and most muscular movements of any instrument in a modern/rock music repertoire, and therefore it really helps to be physically fit. Yet, Animal, in fact, was designed after Music/FleetwoodMac's drummer, Mick Fleetwood, who is quite tall and slender(his personality, however, is rumored to have been based on Music/TheWho's Keith Moon.

* Arejay Hale of the band Music/{{Halestorm}} once kicked his cymbal into the crowd during a concert and had to ask for it back. In the music video for "Love Bites (So Do I)" he is shown again kicking his drum set as part of the performance.

* The single most primal villain ever seen in ''Literature/Redwall'', Gulo the Savage, is a huge cannibalistic wolverine who gets his horde into a frenzy by pounding a stolen drum (it was to be a gift from Salamandastron to Redwall, when Gulo fell on the hares delivering it and ate them).

Added DiffLines:
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'': Raiko Horikawa [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioQLlX2ELbg is a drum spirit]], but in no way wild or uncontrolled despite serving as a BonusBoss (and a good thing too, given that she also has the powers of a thunder god). Remixes of Suika and Yuugi's themes (two tremendously strong oni) often features big loud drums, making them slightly straighter examples.

** A CutawayGag had GeorgeHarrison, PaulMcCartney and JohnLennon in the kitchen discussing which of their songs would go on the new album.[[note]]The context, from clothes worn and titles dropped, is "Rubber Soul" or "Revolver" in 1966[[/note]] Ringo Starr walks in, full of excitement that he too has written a song. The other three praise him exactly as if he was a six-year old who's done well at school and Starr beams with pride, unaware he's being patronised. McCartney then praises him and says he's going to pin the song to the fridge door with a magnet, look, like all the rest...
