* American TV seems to love this trope in its presenters of reality shows where ruthless people have to sort the wheat from the chaff quickly and efficiently. [[TheMeanBrit Simon Cowell]], for instance. Creator/GordonRamsay's non-nonsense approach to failing hotels and eateries made him a household name. ''Series/KitchenNightmares'' spawned a knock off, ''Restaurant:Impossible'', presented by Robert Irvine: a British chef/entrepreneur who comes across as colder, nastier and more ruthless despite not losing his temper and never swearing ''once''. You would not want to cross him or disobey.

* ''{{Film/Deadpool}}'' has Francis Freeman (aka Ajax), whose chief defining characteristics seem to be his British accent, wealth of scientific knowledge, and lack of any form of pain, physical or emotional.



** ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'': Ajax has an English accent, and he's the first example of a British BigBad in the movie series. He's even credited as a [[LampshadeHanging "British Villain."]]
