* Alexander Anderson of ''Manga/{{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.

* In the Tim Burton film ''Film/AliceInWonderland'', the Mad Hatter, during his occasional bouts of lucidity and badassery, slips into a Scottish accent.

* Music/{{Sabaton}}, a heavy metal band who sings about real-life war battles, invokes this trope in their song "Blood of Bannockburn." It's a song that retells the Battle of Stirling, where the Scots repelled the English to maintain an agreement that the Scots would earn their independence if they could hold a castle long enough.

* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. He once took on a wolf that managed to enter the premises, and apparently managed to beat it silly. The wolf does earns some degree of his respect, though:

* Sebastian Vael of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' is a Brave Starkhaven ReligiousBruiser, with Starkhaven being a rather patchy FantasyCounterpartCulture version of Scotland. Only ''he'' has the Scottish accent. The entire rival Harriman family he is fighting against has English (Flora) or French (Ruxtan) accents. And this is despite the Free Marches (which Starkhaven is a part of) being a fantasy analogue to the HolyRomanEmpire.

* ''MutantChronicles'': The Imperial faction is heavily based on Victorian Britain, fascination with all things Scottish included, and breeds kilt-wearing, woad-painted, claymore-swinging arsekickers, along with some of the setting's best assault troops, like it's no-one's business. Imperial's economic model is based on military expansion, so they're a necessity.

* 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.
