* Scrooge [=McDuck=] of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' didn't make all that money sitting behind a desk; he did it by being ''[[CatchPhrase "tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties"]]''; and he made it square.

** That wss Hadrian, but his successor, Antoninus Pius, pushed on past Glasgow and built the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonine_Wall Antonine Wall]] from the Clyde to the Forth. It still didn't keep the pesky Caledonians out but may explain the Glaswegian's passion for Italian ice cream.

*** Actually, the whole Film/{{Braveheart}} getup appears on only six units (of 27), with at least one of those losing it when they get upgraded armour, and they do have a ton of really good pike units, including two different ones wearing full plate, one of their unique pike units is specifically stated to be Lowlanders and they do not look like they're from Film/{{Braveheart}}, and pike units tend to make up a good chunk of Scottish armies in the game. The idea of the entire Scottish faction in ''Medieval II'' being primitive barbarians straight out of Film/{{Braveheart}} is extremely exaggerated, as they do have access to a number of units who wear heavy armour (including three different unique infantry units who start out in partial or full plate), as well as access to gunpowder in the form of cannons (though the fact that they don't have handguns, arquebuisers or muskets is strange). The units who do wear the get up are inaccurate, though in the case of the two highland noble units, their weaponry isn't exactly low-tech, and they can be upgraded to wear fairly heavy armour.

** It should be noted that they often would have some men with muskets, who would fire when within range, then drop them and charge with their melee weapons. The tactic was primarily used before the invention of the ring bayonet, meaning that attaching a bayonet would prevent you from firing your musket, so their opponents usually got one volley off, then had to try and attach their bayonets in a very short amount of time, while also having to deal with the fact that several hundred very angry highlanders are currently charging you, will arrive any second, and have proper melee weapons and [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe targes]][[note]]One clever tactic the highlanders used to counter bayonets was to swing their targe to knock their enemy's bayonet aside[[/note]].

* In the video game entries of ''Franchise/TheWitcher'', we have ''two'' of them. Skeligans, who are a mixture of Vikings and Scots (some elements of their clothing, their accents and their names being scottish) and the Dwarves with their stereotypically dwarven accents. Subverted with the latter since not all Dwarves are actually all that stereotypical beyond their speech patterns.

* Donald and Douglas both from ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngineAndFriends'', especially taking their backstory into account. To summarise, Donald was purchased by the NWR to be their new goods engine. However, that would have come with a terrible price: Douglas was to be left behind for the scrapheap. Neither would let this happen however, and they rushed over to Sodor together, so they would both be safe, which is what eventually ends up happening.
