* Antonov, the organizer of the tournament for ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' XIV. He's big, [[BoisterousBruiser loves fighting]], [[CarpetOfVirility covered in hair]], and [[EmotionalBruiser surprisingly sensitive]]. Unlike pretty much every other King of Fighters boss, he's also actually quite a NiceGuy who organized the tournament simply because he loves spirited competitions so much and has no hidden nefarious agenda. [[spoiler: The attack by [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Verse]] is just as much a surprise to him.]]

* Many of pro wrestling's ForeignWrestlingHeel Russians are big bruisers to boot; Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Wrestling/VladimirKozlov is simply the latest iteration of the model.

* There were literally dozens of "Russian" heel wrestlers in the 70's and 80's, most of them giant swollen weightlifters. The largest Russian heels included: Nikita Kolkff, Krusher Khrushchev, Vladimir Petrov, and Soldat Ustinov

** [[Wrestling/RusevAndLana Rusev]], who is somewhere between 280 and 300 lbs of thick muscle st any given time, spent about a year being billed as a Bulgarian who had ''moved to'' Russia. He exemplified the Russian ForeignWrestlingHeel in every other sense, but (oddly) it was never denied or ignored that he's Bulgarian by birth and upbringing.

* Pictured above: Probably the TropeCodifier would be ''Franchise/StreetFighter'''s Zangief. He's not the tallest World Warrior (the Mexican T. Hawk, the German Hugo, and the Thai Sagat edge him out there), but he's certainly the most muscular and probably the most physically powerful.

He is TheBigGuy of the FiveManBand and relays heavily on brute force when fighting, but outside the ring he's a very calm and honorable BigBrotherMentor towards the group.

It's still obvious what the writers were getting at, though. Interestingly, Ginias Sakharin could be considered a complete inversion of this trope, because despite also having implied Russian heritage (his surname), [[{{Bishonen}} his]] [[SissyVillain design]] [[AmbiguouslyGay and mannerisms]] are anything but husky and brutish.

** Also, aside from the spattering of Russian words that some writers (notably Creator/ChrisClaremont) liked to spatter into his dialogue, Colossus speaks English with an American accent, thanks to being taught the language telepathically (this detail is easy to miss, which is why he speaks with a Russian accent in the cartoons).
