%% * ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** Expert sniper
Garrus Vakarian, David Anderson, infamous mercenary Zaeed Massani, and unmatched assassin Thane Krios and especially the Reapers from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' all have deep, the deepest voices on your team.
** David Anderson has Creator/KeithDavid's
distinctive voices.baritone, and is no slouch in a direct fight despite being a naval officer.



%% * Any character voiced by KeithDavid is almost guaranteed to be this. Vhailor from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', The Arbiter from ''{{Halo}}'' (notable for being the [[TheStoic least hammy]] [[EliteMook Elite]]), and Captain Anderson from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' come to mind.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' franchise, most male [[SuperSoldier Spartans]] speak this way, with the [[TheHero Master Chief]] especially having a very recognizable smooth baritone (which sounds even deeper due to that he [[TheStoic hardly ever raises his voice]]). On the other side, every male Sangheili[=/=][[ReportingNames Elite]] has a very deep voice, with some also fitting under GutturalGrowler (incidentally, ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' has revealed that the females have a similar ContraltoOfDanger). The [[KillerSpaceMonkey Jiralhanae]][=/=][[ReportingNames Brutes]], meanwhile, have voices so deep and [[GutturalGrowler rough]] they border on BassoProfundo.

* Bahzell Bahnakson, chosen of the war god and demon slayer in DavidWeber's TheWarGods series speaks in deep voice, likely thanks to his unusually huge size.

Added DiffLines:

* The Duke of Taunton in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series is both when he uses his high head-voice. He is in fact a BassoProfundo RetiredBadass. And the ''retired'' bit is purely notional.

Added DiffLines:

* Another major Creator/SamuelLJackson example would be Nick Fury, BadassNormal BigGood to the mostly {{transhuman}} heroes of the [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]].


Added DiffLines:

* An early sign that short, frail, sickly [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Steve Rogers]] is destined for a life of [[SuperSoldier badassery]] is that he already sounds like Creator/ChrisEvans. Sure enough, he soon graduates directly to OneManArmy, and from that to [[UpToEleven leader of the Avengers]].

* Played for laughs in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' after Dee Dee's voice became a very exaggerated baritone after fooling around with a piece of Dexter's equipment too much. (But it worked out for her in the end; she joined a Barbershop Quartet.)

* Played for laughs in one episode of the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' after episode "Dee Dee Be Deep". Dexter tried to improve his sister Dee Dee's voice [[DreadfulMusician awful singing voice]] with one of his inventions, but thanks to Dee Dee messing around with it she became a very exaggerated baritone after fooling around with a piece of Dexter's equipment too much. (But baritone. While she didn't get into the school choir, it worked out for her in the end; she joined a Barbershop Quartet.) Quartet instead.
