* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Comicbook/CaptainAmerica is from Brooklyn. He doesn't seem to have the "rage" (usually) because he's very disciplined. However, he definitely has the determination and adamant refusal to back down from fighting the bad guys that comes with this trope.

* Reginald Veljohnson (who also does shows Brooklyn rage in his ''Series/{{Family Matters}}'') does it somewhat in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}.'' He's not exactly angry, but not in the most pleasant of moods either. He's more in an arrogant, snarky mood
--> '''Cop (played by Veljohnson)''': "Hey Ghostbusters. Mayor wants to see you guys. The whole island is going crazy. Let's go."
* Reginald Veljohnson does it again as Sergeant Al Powell in ''Film/{{Die Hard}}'' -- although he's more angry about the way the police department is handling the hostage crisis.
-->'''Sergeant Al Powell:''' "The man is hurting! He is alone, tired, and he hasn't seen diddly-squat from anybody down here. Now you're gonna stand there and tell me that he's gonna give a damn about what you do to him, if he makes it out of there alive? Why don't you wake up and smell what you shoveling?"

* Roger Murtough from the ''Film/{{Lethal Weapon}}'' series is another good example. It's set in Los Angeles, yet he often has a Brooklyn (New York in general) attitude about everything, and his accent is very strong in all of the movies, but pulls a Brooklyn rage, via a gangsta accent, when trying to entice Martin Riggs to kill himself in the first movie. Ironically, though he's from San Francisco, Danny Glover has a New York black accent.



* Creator/BruceWillis
** John [=McClane=] in ''Franchise/DieHard'' is from New York, so even when he's not there, he's a tough [[SoundEffectBleep mother*bang*]]. And from the third film, "shove a lightning bolt up your ass!" Zeus.
** Korben Dallas, who helps save the world in ''Film/TheFifthElement'', is a Brooklyn cab-driver in the 23rd century.
** ''Film/HudsonHawk''. Let's see: accent, check; wise-ass, especially in the wrong situation, check; good in a fist fight, check; good in a GUN fight, check; simply won't stay down (without a goodly sized tranq dart in the neck anyway), check; just wants to be done with all this crazy crap and have a damn cup of cappucino, double-check.

* Walter Peck, the jerk environmentalist agent from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' tries to file charges against the Ghostbusters, and does so in an angry, arrogant New York fashion.
* Every hood/gangsta movie set in the Northeast and Louisiana (since technically Louisiana is culturally a different country, semi-wise, but those with American accents have a New York accent) fits the bill very well. ''Film/{{Straight Outta Brooklyn}}'', ''Film/{{730}}'', and ''Film/{{Above the Rim}}'' are good examples.

-->'''Saladeen:''' "I saw their face."
