* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Lethal Weapons," all of the New Yorkers are portrayed this way.

* Comic Book legend Creator/JackKirby (who ''himself'' exemplified this trope in real life) created a lot of characters in this mold, including [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Benjamin J. "Thing" Grimm]] and Dan "Terrible" Turpin, who in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' responds to Comicbook/{{Darkseid}}'s planet-wide BreakingSpeech by ''insulting Darkseid to his face'' and proceeding to free Franchise/{{Superman}}. Also "Brooklyn" of the Boy Commandos, later retconned as being a young Dan Turpin.

* The ''entire plot'' of ''Film/GhostbustersII'' is about an evil spirit channeling New Yorkers' negative emotions, rage obviously being one of them. Futhermore, the Mayor claims that: "Being miserable and treating other people like dirt is every New Yorker's God-given right." The film then plays on this trope when the Ghostbusters manage to ''weaponize'' New Yorker goodwill and patriotism by [[spoiler: turning Lady Liberty into a HumongousMecha.]]

* Harry Russo, the VillainProtagonist serial killer from the ''Film/{{Schizophreniac}}'' movies is this combined with CloudCuckoolander to a ([[DeadBabyComedy very dark]])comical degree.

* Also to be expected from time to time on ''Series/{{CSINY}}'' which is set in New York. As far as main characters, Danny Messer can fit this at times. He's settled a little since becoming a family man, but he still has his short temper and liability to explode from time to time. He tries to restrain it at work, but not always successfully. And he'll take it UpToEleven if you [[PapaWolf go after Lindsay and Lucy]].Stella fell into it from time to time as well, and so did Aiden Burn. Another character is Sonny Sassone, who was a villain in two episodes.

* The infamous Wrestling/VinceRusso's on-camera persona embodies this, especially with his tenure in front of the camera in the dying days of WCW.

* No less than two contenders in the 2016 U.S. presidential election -- Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders -- live and breathe this trope. The same might be said of former contender Chris Christie, though the fact that Christie is not a New Yorker (he's the Governor of neighboring New Jersey) might disqualify him.

The type of character can vary, often a {{Badass}} with a HairTriggerTemper. Will sometimes be part of TheMafia. Even if he's one of the good guys, someone with a Brooklyn accent is bound to be ''tough'' nonetheless.

* Mocked in CharlieBrooker's ''2012 Wipe'', where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Bf9ZObacRI Doug Stanhope says]] that New Yorkers spectacularly failed to live up to their "hard" reputation after Hurricane Sandy.

* In the novel ''The Fall of a Nation'' by Thomas Dixon (author of ''The Klansman'', aka ''Film/TheBirthOfANation''), the combined European armies (save neutral Britain) invade America. New York City turns out to be somewhat more difficult to take than anticipated, not just because the NYPD fights to the last man, but all the immigrant neighborhoods are adamantly opposed to the invaders. They left Europe for a ''reason''.

* An episode of ''The Twisted Tales Of FelixTheCat'' featured a flood devastating New York. When the flood reaches Brooklyn, the residents ''beat it back''.

* In ''Film/CrocodileDundee'', Sue assures her editor that she's tough enough to handle the Australian Outback because she's a New Yorker. It's subverted in that she's pretty helpless without Mick, while in comparison, Mick is a lot tougher than the local New York riff-raff.

* Rocket Raccoon from ''Film/{{Guardians of the Galaxy}}'' has a slight Brooklyn accent provided by actor Bradley Cooper. Watch out- Rocket's been known to shoot people when he's angry.

* Present in pretty much every character in ''Film/AGuideToRecognizingYourSaints''. Antonio and Diane are especially hot tempered. It's quite telling that the OnlySaneMan is a boy who's just immigrated from Scotland. This is mostly in the teen years though. Most of them have mellowed out in adulthood.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Wrestling/Carmella}}, the 'Princess of Staten Island' played this up more as a {{Heel}} - where she had a HairTriggerTemper and was frequently sniping at her boys. As a {{Face}} she's more of a PluckyGirl but the rage is still there if she's pissed off.
