* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' had this played out during an episode where after a bully stole Riley's chain, it was revealed one of his various feats was being unfazed to one of the [=DIs=] and then sending a chair in his direction.

** The Mixels have Rokit, who, while much more downplayed than others, thinks ''everything'' is SeriousBusiness, from getting a cup of coffee to petting a cat, which makes him easily annoyed that others don't share this way of thinking.
** Meanwhile, the Nixels have [[TheDragon Major Nixel]], the second-in-command for the Nixels. For him, it's less that the Nixels respect them, more that they are terrified of him, which is why his army wastes no time in mocking him for his failures, and even [[BigBad King Nixel]] can't stand him.

* Gunnery Sergeant Bardue, at the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse''. He's retired military, an imposing black man in his sixties, and perfectly willing to become Drill Sergeant Nasty if it's required to get the point across to the superpowered mutants he's training.
** Compare and contrast Erik Mahren, the firearms instructor [[spoiler:(up to a point)]], who can and will take down any student who's stupid enough to give him lip on the ranges.
* Coach Jillian "Jillybean" Callahan in ''Literature/TalesOfMU'', who teaches students at Magisterius University how to fight either because she was traumatized by the sight of an untrained mage [[FateWorseThanDeath caught by Ogres]] during the last big war [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation or because]] she likes being able to legally inflict pain and injuries on college kids. Possibly both.
* WebVideo/MarzGurl of ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'' punches anyone in line for any reason whatsoever.
* A classic quote is parodied in WebAnimation/ASDFMovie.
-->'''Sergeant:''' What are you, a man, or a mouse?!
-->'''[[spoiler:([[TakeAThirdOption Horse]])]]'''
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Sarge]] in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has strong shades of this. He leads a team in the field, but they rarely actually conduct any operation, and he seems to more enjoy the posturing as a [=DSN=] than anything else. In one of the side episodes for the release of ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'', he comments that he began his military career in "Sergeant School" full of "fresh faced sergeants eager to strangle their first recruit." He says he failed his "Drop and Give Me Twenty" test, but ultimately majored in Screaming! with a minor in Ooh-rah!
* Mr. Popo in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
-->'''Popo''': Alright maggots, listen up. Popo's 'bout to teach you the pecking order: it goes you, the dirt, the worms inside the dirt, Popo's stool, Kami; and Popo. Any questions?\\
'''Krillin''': Uh, yeah, I- ''(cut to outside shot of lookout as sounds of fighting can be heard, followed by a black dot falling off said lookout)'' AAAAAAAGGGGGHHHH! ([[RunningGag Krillin Owned Count]]: 3)\\
'''Popo''': Enjoy the climb back up, '''[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]'''. Any more questions? ''(silence)'' Good. Then we can begin.
* ''WebAnimation/EddsWorld'' has Sergeant Hillarson.
-->Edd: Sir, can I call you Hillary, sir?



* Parodied by the character of Sgt. Ronald E. Army, better known as [[EmbarrassingNickname Soldier]], in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG''. As if it weren't obvious enough, his name is a pun on RLeeErmey. However, despite his constant shouting and calling everyone maggots, very few people take him seriously. He even got beat up over a few particularly sexist remarks at least twice.

* Creator/BishopBarron identifies this trope in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv8xz62aJa4 one of his reviews]] as the "Monster Mentor," who gets results from his students with insanely harsh methods. Examples can be found in ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' and ''Film/KillBill'', but the most "arresting instance of this character" is found in Creator/JKSimmons's character from ''Film/{{Whiplash}}''.

Added DiffLines:

** Rainbow Dash [[RunningGag yet again]] as well as Applejack count in the episode Buckball Season when they, as Applejack puts it, "get serious". Applejack pressures Pinkie saying if they lose the Apple Family will lose their honour while Rainbow Dash is yelling at Fluttershy to go faster through an obstacle course she designed like a majority of olympic coaches would. Fortunately both Applejack and Rainbow realize their idea of getting "in the zone" is much different from Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie, who just want to have fun.

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in WholesomeCrossdresser Tip's "Princess training" in ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' - his trainer, Mary, has the usual screaming insults, except she calls him "manly-boy" and tells him he's just not girly enough.

* Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from the film ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' (played, of course, by The Master himself, Creator/RLeeErmey). {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in the sense that Hartmann is a demonstrable ''failure'' as a drill instructor: he entirely fails to notice one of his recruits is undergoing an obvious mental breakdown until it is too late, and then [[spoiler:[[TooDumbToLive gets himself killed in a very stupid manner]] by trying to ''abuse and provoke even further'' the visibly twitching recruit fondling the loaded rifle]]... instead of simply turning around and leaving to fetch the [=MPs=] before the crazy man with the gun noticed he was there.
* Sgt. Hiles in ''Film/TheFrighteners'' is a ghostly {{Expy}} of Sgt. Hartmann. [[Creator/RLeeErmey Guess who plays him?]]
