* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': [[http://zebragirl.net/?date=2010-08-13 "Iyam a ]][[http://zebragirl.net/?date=2010-09-06 gigantic hired thug."]]



* Tales abound throughout military history of soldiers so big and strong they were [[SuperStrength capable of such feats as using squad support weapons as rifles]]. There was supposedly one fellow in the Red Army during the Great Patriotic War who was said to be able to [[GunsAkimbo doublefist]] squad machineguns, though this may be an exaggeration. Supposedly one such soldier named Mariolle was found in Napoleon's army, where he obeyed the order to salute by raising a 4" cannon to his shoulder instead of a rifle. While the Emperor congratulated him, this incident was PlayedForLaughs and [[WhatCouldHaveBeen didn't quite result in 19th century squad support weapons]]. Even today, a common French idiom, "cessez de faire le mariolle" (stop doing the Mariolle thing) means "stop clowning around".

* Late in ''[[VideoGame/{{Cryostatis}} Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason]]'', you would occasionally encounter seven feet tall monsters in black hooded parkas. Besides being exceedingly hard to kill, they also [[DualWielding dual-wielded]] the [=PPSh=] submachine guns.

* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' has the horned demons appearing halfway through the game, and megademons on the later levels that are quite deadly and come in large numbers. Diablo 2 gives us [[FakeUltimateMook sasquatches]], Blunderbores (massive brutes that wield corpses like clubs), giant walking trees, and also brings the magademons back from the first game. The goatmen appearing in all three games, while roughly human sized, are still pretty large and imposing considering most opponents you encounter before meeting them for the first time.

* Richard Kiel, who is probably most famous for menacing Film/JamesBond as Giant Mook Jaws in ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' and ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'' (although Jaws, being a chief henchman verged on TheDragon territory). He also played a caveman in the BMovie ''Film/{{Eegah}}'' in addition to a Serbian warlord in ''Force 10 from Navarone'' and a giant henchman in ''Film/SilverStreak''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' has various large wildlife that you can encounter throughout the match. These are harder to take down then the smaller animals but are still weaker than the Monster.

* As the actor entry notes, Franchise/IndianaJones inevitably runs across a hulking henchman played by Pat Roach, who proceeds to cause him no end of trouble until dispatched with some convenient environmental hazard. Sadly the requisite scene in ''The Last Crusade'' was cut and the role was filled by an {{expy}} in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' due to Pat Roach's death in 2004.
