Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Rickard's response when Robb asks him about possible lodging for Ser Alton show that he is a rather irritable man. Justified, as the North has recently lost Winterfell, which calls into question Robb's worthiness as King in the North. He was also right about Robb marrying Talisa costing him the war. The Freys weren't too happy about it.

* Season 5 of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' shows that Da Samurai retired from his would-be warrior career and became a barkeep. He's quite loud and angry, and he loves to brag about his past and his run-in with Jack (while also putting those those that were ''brutally maimed'' by Jack as "Having no soul")

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': If Trond finds an excuse to complain about something, he'll take that's including calling the two pieces of blackmail he used to help the expedition "wasted", despite the fact that it was his own decision to use them to resolve unforeseen emergencies in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the [[TheSpymaster Spymaster]] of the Blades in Morrowind and primary QuestGiver for the first act of the main quest, Caius Cosades, is one. Possibly [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], in that its difficult to tell how much this is Caius' actual personality and how much is him PlayingDrunk[=/=]ObfuscatingInsanity in his cover identity as a senile [[FantasticDrug Skooma addict]]. He will [[BerserkButton go quite berserk]] if you mess up on his quests and the other Blades call him "sour" and "a worrier" when asked. Despite this, he does [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold obviously care about]] the PlayerCharacter.

* ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Absalom the Chaos Space Marine from Da Real Wurld 40K. Makes sense, he's pretty much the oldest character in the comic who doesn't look like a hot chick. His hobbies include gardening, which was suggested by his therapist to curb his anger issues. For God's sake, don't mess up his garden.

* [[OneFootInTheGrave Victor Meldrew]] is a particularly spectacular example of this (though he is somewhat more sophisticated about it than most), and [[TheChewToy he does at least usually have a good reason for being upset about everything.]]
