** The ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'' version is even ''worse''. He's depicted as a psychotic demolitions expert who for whatever reason has decided to make it his life's ambition to blow up Hitler. There are literally no limits to how he'll go about achieving that goal.

* The Demoman in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is either this or a MadBomber (it depends on whether he's on your team or not). His weapons of choice are a grenade launcher and a gun that shoots sticky mines. Then, if you want, you can even replace your melee weapon with a Stick Grenade unlock. He'll still go around hitting people with it instead of just throwing the damn thing, however.
