*** 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]].

* Piotr "Peter" Rasputin aka Colossus in ''ComicBook/XMen'', and unlike most of the trope examples - he's an art student and fairly intelligent.

* ''Film/{{Everest 2015}}'': Anatoli Boukreev, the Russian member of Scott Fischer's Mountain Madness team. In addition to being very tall, he ascended the mountain without oxygen (he felt it gave a false sense of security), and when the blizzard comes up, he makes several treks back up to bring stragglers back to the camp.

* ''[[VideoGame/PunchOut Punch-Out!!]]'' has VodkaDrunkenski, who became the [[FrothyMugsOfWater non-alcoholic]] Soda Popinski. The UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} game turns this UpToEleven by making him, 6'6", the tallest character in the game even taller than FinalBoss [[ScaryBlackMan Mr. Sandman]] [[spoiler:although he might be shorter than VideoGame/DonkeyKong]] and he does the cossack dance when he wins. Also, in a possible ShoutOut to ''Rocky IV'', after losing to Mac, scientists create a chemical formula to make him faster and stronger. The funny thing being that the contender mode montage (instead of the tougher Title Defense mode) features him performing rustic workouts like Rocky did in that movie.

** She's nigh-identical to the ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' original, producer Derrick J Wyatt having been a fan of the character. Getting her back onscreen was on his TF bucket list.
