* A description of the Sarge from ''Cyclomaniacs Epic'':
-->Listen up maggots, the Sarge is one mean walrus of a rider, the Marine Corps' finest rider. Sir yes sir.

* ''BillTheGalacticHero'' by Creator/HarryHarrison has Deathwish Drang who plays this trope to the letter, with pronounced tusks no less. It is later revealed that Drang is a trained psychologist and that the act is a result of decades of research (and his tusks are fake).

* A truly psychotic version of Sergeant Grimshaw (see film examples above), seemingly based on Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann, appears in Creator/KimNewman's AlternateHistory novella ''Teddy Bear's Picnic''. After having the recruits peel potatoes as a punishment, he decides he's changed his mind and orders them to glue the potato skins back on.

* There are multiple examples in UsefulNotes/IceHockey, but one of the most (in)famous is veteran UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague coach Mike Keenan, nicknamed "Iron Mike" for his strict discipline and short fuse. NHL veteran Jeremy Roenick, one of his former players, describes him as "[[http://deadspin.com/5958837/mike-keenan-the-nhls-last-great-asshole-coach the NHL's last great asshole coach]]''. Roenick describes playing for Keenan like "camping on the edge of a volcano", but says that it made him a better player. That said, Keenan is also known around the NHL for his GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity, having coached seven teams and been ignominously fired from many of them.

* During a comedic X-Men storyline that depicted an alien army invading Australia, the invasion fell apart for several reasons. One of them was the alien soldiers actually bonding with the Australians over beer and trading stories instead of fighting. One panel depicted a massive alien sitting in a bar with an Australian citizen who was also an ex-soldier, both of the sharing stories of the Drill Sergeant Nasties they'd encountered.

* Downplayed in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' with the Police Academy instructor. While unforgiving of failure, shouting "You're dead!" every time, she's also shown to be proud of Judy once the latter starts using her speed and agility rather than trying to muscle through the various tests.

* Downplayed Played as straight as they could in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' a Disney film in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', with the Police Academy instructor. While She ''sounds'' berating and unforgiving of failure, during drills, shouting "You're dead!" every time, time a recruit slips; she's also shown to be very proud of her graduates, especially Judy once the latter our fuzzy protagonist starts using her speed and agility rather than trying to muscle through the various tests.

* ''Film/CarryOn Sergeant'': Sergeant Grimshawe is a downplayed example of this, trying calmer methods than usual in what is going to be his last squad. Corporal Copping fits the role to a T, however.
