* ''Disney/RobinHood'': The Sheriff of Nottingham, who has a Southern accent despite the film taking place in England. Presumably the script team heard the word "sheriff"[[note]]which means something somewhat different in Britain, by the way[[/note]] and decided to stick to what they knew. See also Friar Tuck, who sounds like a Deep South PreacherMan stereotype, albeit the heroic GoodShepherd variety.

* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'': [[spoiler: [[BigBad Lotso]]]] runs [[CrapsaccharineWorld Sunnyside]] with an iron fist. Since this is ''Toy Story'' the most "hick" he can display is the accent, but he's got "corrupt" to spare.
* Averted in ''Disney/TheRescuers''. The film has a location named Devil's Bayou, which could be located in Louisiana or Texas. Either way, it is a swamp with alligators in it. The swamp folks living there seem to have some hillbilly qualities, like Luke who drinks strong liquor that turns out to be gasoline. However, they turn out to be rather friendly, and actually aided in the rescue of Penny from Medusa, Snoops, Brutus and Nero.

* Margaret "Maggie" Fitzgerald's family from ''MillionDollarBaby''. They care little about Maggie's well-being, and will cheerfully cross the MoralEventHorizon just to get her money. Maggie herself is a DefectorFromDecadence.

* Mr. Moss of ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' is a chubby [[TheEmpire Cyclonian]] [[WardensAreEvil prison warden]] built around stereotypes of the American South. He has a heavy Southern drawl, wears a cowboy hat and peppers his speech with Southernisms. He even calls his hovercraft Bessie.

* ''Film/{{Tank}}'': Command Sergeant Major Zack Carey [[[note]]Played by James Garner[[/note]] gets on the bad side of one of these, who ends up framing his son for drug possession and cheating him out of his retirement money. Garner's character, however, is a Command Sergeant Major in the Army -- literally almost a RetiredBadass- - and owns a fully restored, fully ''armed'' WWII Sherman tank. HilarityEnsues.

Added DiffLines:

* Countryside "redneck" criminals are a reoccurring but minor threat across ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto''. They don't seem to hold much power in the communities they inhabit, unlike most examples of this trope.
** A gang of rednecks lead by an ElvisImpersonator appear in the second area of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto2'', inhabiting a trailer park. They are opposed to the Scientists due to their lack of literacy.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' features one mission where CJ must steal a combine harvester from a group of {{Right Wing Militia Fanatic}}s who dress and behave in a typical southern manner.
** A gang known as the Trailer Park Mafia is featured in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCityStories'', serving as an early-game employer and later an antagonist group for Victor Vance. They are absorbed into Vance's criminal empire after he kills their leader, Marty Jay Williams.
** Various redneck gangs inhabit the countryside areas of Blaine County in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' and ''Grand Theft Auto Online'', usually as generic enemies. The most prominent gang among them is the O'Neil Brothers, who are constant victims of Trevor in both the storyline missions and in the ''Heists'' update.
