* WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet: Oh, Wheeler. Being the token American, and a bit of a {{Jerkass}}. He's the first of the bunch who is willing to make a direct strike, first of the bunch to charge into danger, and the first to tell the villain of the week where to stuff their stupid plan. Naturally, he's got the [[KillItWithFire Fire ring]].

** Averted: Given how often the [[SaveThePrincess princess of the Mushroom Kingdom is getting kidnapped]], it's a miracle that Mario hasn't yet flown off the handle in one of those.

** Averted: Given how often the [[SaveThePrincess princess of the Mushroom Kingdom is getting kidnapped]], it's a miracle that Mario hasn't yet flown off the handle in one of those. Of course, whether or not they're even ''from'' Brooklyn anymore is up for debate.

* Reginald [=VelJohnson=] (who also does shows Brooklyn rage in his ''Series/FamilyMatters'') does it somewhat in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}.'' He's not exactly angry, but not in the most pleasant of moods either. He's more in an arrogant, snarky mood

* Nick Jameson, who voices Max in ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'', gives the lagomorph plenty of Brooklyn rage. Parodied by William Kastern in ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice: The Devil's Playhouse'', who doesn't generally use this when he voices Max, but uses a Brooklyn accent while playing an extra-aggressive version of Max in a NostalgiaLevel.

* Creator/MaraWilson jokingly referred to herself as a "cold hearted New Yorker", in her interview with Doug Walker. It's probably no coincidence that she plays this up when she guest stars on Channel Awesome - portraying herself as someone who wields demonic powers from "beyond our realm".
* No less than two contenders in the 2016 U.S. presidential election Creator/DonaldTrump 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.

* 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 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.

* 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''.
