** Marvel is also home to Cosmo, who appears in the pages of GuardiansOfTheGalaxy. He's a bit of an unusual example, being a talking Cosmonaut dog, but he's certainly got the personality for it.

* Most versions of ''Franchise/{{Spider Man}}'' foe Kraven the Hunter; in the original comics, Sergei Kravinoff could wrestle a lion in his sleep even without the mystic potions and herbs he uses when officially on the hunt. His son Aloysha, on the other hand, once knocked out the Rhino with one blow. Again, though, Kraven and his sons all used what amounted to herbal steroids to achieve this level of power.

** Then again, Duo had a [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/megaman/images/9/95/Duo1.jpg different look]] before encountering Mega Man and crew, and was rebuilt into that design by Dr. Light.
*** If one ''really'' wants to be technical, Dive Man qualifies among Dr. Cossack's Robot Masters.

* [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Colonel Volgin]] is a bit of one of these. And a DepravedBisexual. And a PsychoElectro.
** But then, ''Snake Eater'' was set in Russia; they didn't have much choice on his nationality.
** Subverted with the rest of the cast, who range from scrawny (Sokolov) to average (numerous [=NPCs=])

* P.J. O'Rourke, in his book "Eat the Rich," records his visit to Russia, writing "Russians are a people of largeness: large bodies, large gestures, large voices. In fact, Russians are enormous. Being an average-size American in St. Petersburg is like being a girl gymnast at a Teamsters convention. And these are Russians who were raised on potatoes and suet with bread that you could use for a boat anchor. Envision them after twenty years of good nutrition. Twenty years from now, Americans may ask themselves if winning the Cold War was worth losing the Super Bowl."
** The only thing preventing losing the Super Bowl to Russians is that TheNewRussia's hypercapitalism isn't exactly providing good nutrition to the poor (that is, like 90% of the population).
** Or, rather, that no one in Russia ever gives a shit about American Football,[[note]]UsefulNotes/IceHockey or UsefulNotes/TheBeautifulGame, on the other hand...[[/note]] as that [[HollywoodCuisine nutrition stuff]] is safely a thing of [[TheNineties the past]].

** Also, Ukrainians Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, who stand at about 6'6" and 6'8" respectively, and go into the ring at 240 and 250 pounds. They hold all four heavyweight titles between them.

*** His appearance in ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'' further averts it. He went to the Soviet College of Mines, Farms, And Science, and has a [=PhD=] in Russian Literature. [[HolyShitQuotient That's Dr. Heavy Weapons Guy to you!]]

* The Heavy of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. He's very tall, very hefty, and ''very'' strong. He's also extremely proud of his size and strength, often calling enemies little and comparing them to babies. Though he acts the part of the [[NoIndoorVoice Exceptionally Loud]] MightyGlacier on the battlefield, he displays traces of intelligence in his Meet the Heavy video. Also, [[BerserkButton don't get between him]] [[ICallItVera and Sasha.]]
** Subverted in that the blurb for "Meet the Heavy" outright states that the Heavy is not DumbMuscle, and his simple English is because it's not his native tongue. In the [[BilingualBonus Russian version of the video]], [[EloquentInMyNativeTongue he's more eloquent]].
