* It's easier to count the Creator/SeanConnery characters who ''don't'' fit this trope (even when the character [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent isn't actually from Scotland]]), but there's one {{badass}} performance we obviously have to mention: [[TheNameIsBondJamesBond Bond]]. Film/JamesBond. Connery was so iconic in the role that Creator/IanFleming actually {{retcon}}ned Bond as Scottish in ''Literature/YouOnlyLiveTwice''! Even after a series of non-Scottish actors took up the torch, ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' confirmed that Bond is indeed Scottish. (''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' also introduces Kincade, an OldRetainer who takes out a number of Silva's mooks. "[[BondOneLiner Welcome to Scotland!]]")

** Scotland's depiction in ''Medieval II'' unfortunately is a lot of ArtisticLicenseHistory. In the game, Scottish armies are made up of iron-age Film/{{Braveheart}} rejects with kilts and blue warpaint (the former wouldn't be found anywhere for at least three centuries and the latter wouldn't be found... um, anytime). In reality Scotland wasn't a land of primitive but brave barbarian warriors, but instead a fairly prosperous medieval kingdom; Scottish troops were often recruited from the lowlands and borders (''not'' the highlands) and equipped with the same weapons and armour as their English and continental neighbours (plate armour was common and either homemade or imported from France, a medieval Scottish ally), and Scotland was relatively quick to embrace advances in battlefield technology such as pike warfare and gunpowder. Blame RuleOfFun.

* This trope is probably what allowed Scotland to survive against Viking raids during the Dark Ages.

The [[{{UsefulNotes/Scotland}} Scottish]] people are stereotypically brave fighters. Thus, a Scottish accent is sometimes used to emphasize the boldness of fantasy warriors.

* Alexander Anderson of ''{{Hellsing}}'' is a {{Badass}} Catholic priest and HolyHitman of Scottish descent who serves the [[ChurchMilitant fanatic Section XIII Iscariot]], which is a branch of the Vatican that's 100% willing to sin in their eternal fight against all the nasty beasties that inhabit the ''Hellsing'' universe. And despite being human (albeit one with vast regenerative and supernatural abilities), Anderson himself goes toe-to-toe with the most powerful vampire in existence and even earns Alucard's nigh-impossible respect as his [[TheRival ultimate rival]] and a WorthyOpponent by the end. No one else manages to accomplish such a grand feat in the whole series.
