* Parodied on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' where a guy like this is training ''pizza delivery men''. Justified, of course, as ''these'' guys have to deliver to Garfield, who is using every trick in the book to make sure they fail to get there within the guaranteed thirty minutes. (Not just because he wants the pizza for free, but because [[ForTheLutz it's fun.]] After all the "recruits" fail to do so, the drill sergeant [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself decides to go it himself]], and ''almost'' makes it, but not quite, eventually signing a peace treaty with Garfield promising a free pizza with everything [[HoldTheUnsolicitedIngredient (except anchovies)]] every day.

** An informaedAbility of Sgt. Slaughter; while his toy bio describes him as a Drill Sergeant Nasty, his comic book appearances were limited and avoided this trope. He plays the trope straight in his WesternAnimation appearances, as listed below.

* Before the era of Pope John XXIII and the Second Vatican Council, which modernized Roman Catholicism and made it more accessible to the people, Catholic priests were notorious for being hard asses who almost took pleasure out of terrorizing their congregations, even/especially small children. The idea of Catholic schools being spartan, dark, and tough halls of terror, on the other hand, is merely a ridiculous stereotype; most nuns even pre-Vatican II were tough but loving authorities who commanded both respect and adoration from their students.
** ''Time. Out.'' There is now overwhelming documented and independently verifed evidence, spanning decades if not centuries, of children in schools and orphanages run by the Catholic Church being subjected to ''sadistic'' amounts of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Not to mention malnutrition and denial of basic health care, as well as excessive discipline that would be considered draconian by any standards. All of this occurred while the Catholic leadership, ''up to and including the Pope,'' was fully aware of it, condoned it, and promptly bent themselves into pretzels trying to cover it up. Sure, there were schools and orphanages that were run by decent people who treated the children fairly and tried their best to do right by them, but to try and say that was the universal standard is simply ignoring the evidence.

* Before Nuns in Catholic Schools are often depicted, even in modern settings, as stern no-nonsense disciplinarians armed with nothing but a 12 inch ruler and the era will to break said ruler on the slightest infraction of Pope John XXIII the rules and most adult age Catholic school students will jokingly take any torture or abuse better cause nothing compares to "Sister Mary Francis in the Second Vatican Council, which modernized Roman Catholicism Grade". [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment The merits of such tactics are best left discussed elsewhere]], and made it more accessible to should be pointed out that in real life, this character is largely a Dead Horse Trope as a shrinking and aging sisterhood along with several church scandals and lay laws have phased out the people, Catholic physical abuse and teaching nuns in general (most catholic schools these days have a majority of lay teachers when compared to priests were notorious for being hard asses who almost took pleasure out of terrorizing their congregations, even/especially small children.

The episode will often imply that Drill Sergeant Nasty is [[MiseryBuildsCharacter right]]: that, abrasive though he may be, everything he does is [[StealthMentor for your own good]] and everyone will come out the better for it. Of course, in the film ''Film/FullMetalJacket'', the [[UnbuiltTrope original]] Drill Sergeant Nasty drives one of the recruits into a mental breakdown, an outcome that you almost [[UnbuiltTrope never see]] in any other examples.

Added DiffLines:

* In the first two ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' games, the New-U machines are [[EvilInc Hyperion-owned]], giving them a sarcastic female AI that mocks you for dying and encourages you not to view it as war profiteering. In ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', however, set on Pandora's moon, those machines are programmed by Dahl, a corporation with heavy PrivateMilitaryContractors elements, leading to the New-U machines coming across as drill sergeants.
