* On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', when Harmony forms her own gang she's at least GenreSavvy enough to include a Giant Mook in the form of Mort.

* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' has the 33rd Battalion Heavy Troopers. These are all uniformly 7' tall and wear [[ImprovisedArmour Juggernaut-like bomb suits with segments of personal body armour duct-taped to it in crucial spots, with an aviation helmet on their head]]. As such, [[MightyGlacier they can barely move, but are so well protected they can tank an ungodly amout of punishment]][[labelnote:*]]for example, a whole magazine of assault rifle fire, three hand grenades or two underslung launcher grenades[[/labelnote]]. Oh, and they all wield {{BFG}}'s either [[MoreDakka M249 light machine guns]] or [[StuffBlowingUp AA-12 automatic shotguns with FRAG-12 explosive slugs]]. Not only that, but [[GenreSavvy they're very much aware of their impairments and how big the bullseye painted on them is]]: they ''very'' rarely attack alone, and request covering fire all the time, more than any other enemy.

* ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' had the Assault Taken, which wielded axes or [[ChainsawGood chainsaws]] and were taller and bulkier than others, but nothing unrealistic. ''Alan Wake: American Nightmare'', however, had an aptly named Giant Taken, which were 3 meter tall and fought with buzzsaws.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Mr. Big, the biggest crime lord in the city, has polar bears as bodyguards. One is even so tall he has to duck when coming through the doorway. Mr. Big, by contrast, is an arctic shrew, one of the smallest species of mammals.

* "Dredger" in the Creator/GuyRitchie ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' film. Played by Robert Maillet, who also played the giant mook in the abovementioned ''Film/ThreeHundred''.

* One rather memorable scene in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' is where Indy encounters [[TheBrute a really big German guy]] (called [[FanNickname "the Nazi mechanic"]] by most movie buffs) who wants to do some GoodOldFisticuffs with him. Indy opens with a GroinAttack, which is subverted rather painfully when the guy shrugs it off and decks him with one punch. [[spoiler:He's finally defeated by judicious use of a TurbineBlender.]]

* 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 ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' was cut and the role was filled by an {{expy}} in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' due to Pat Roach's death in 2004.



** The [[Film/{{Transporter 2}} second movie]] has a ScaryBlackMan who's probably the hardest opponent Frank has to contend with.
** Lampshaded in the [[Film/{{Transporter 3}} third movie]], as the page quote illustrates.
* In the comics, Bane is a GeniusBruiser (he figures out Batman's secret identity, comes up with a refreshingly simple plan to beat Bats, and is generally one tough bastard). In ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', he is basically an idiot caveman Giant Mook for Poison Ivy.
** Fortunately fixed in 2012's ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''.

* In the antique store fight in Jet Li's ''Film/KissOfTheDragon'', a ScaryBlackMan Giant Mook is memorably introduced with his own ''theme song''. I guess his name was Dirty Dawg or something...
* ''Film/TheProtector'' has a giant mook as a recurring antagonist. He is introduced by [[spoiler:grabbing the hero ''through a wall'' and throwing him across a room. He later returns as leader of the Giant Mook squad (see below) and proves himself to be quite the {{Determinator}} refusing to go down and stay down even after his allies have been defeated and all his tendons cut.]]

* In ''Film/TheExpendables3'', there's one large fellow with a huge knife who ''sprints'' into the climatic battle and tries to take [[TheLancer Lee]] [[KnifeNut Christmas]] one on one. He actually manages to lasr several times as long as his commrades... Vut only becouse he's tough enough to take several times ''the beating'' and otherwise doesn't cause any serious damage.

* One of the ''many'' assassins John has to face in ''Film/JohnWickChapter2'' after the BigBad [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder inevitably double crosses him]] is a '''very''' tough sumo-esque guy who manages to {{no sell}} ''two'' {{groin attack}}s, before throwing John through a nearby glass stand. In the ensuing brawl [[{{Determinator}} he manages to shrug off multiple gun shot wounds]], until John finally manages to shoot him through the top of the head, but even then it takes yet ''another'' shot to head for him to stay down. Earlier in the film's ActionPrologue, Wick manages to fight his way through several mooks with only his bare-hands, until a particularly large thug throws him across the room. Unfortunately for him, John is [[CombatPragmatist pragmatic enough to just pull out his gun]] [[KneeCapping shoot him in the knees]], before moving on.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}} has Muscle Nixel, a giant compared to the tiny Nixels, so he towers over a majority of the Mixels as well. It takes much longer to knock him down than the standard ones.
