* The publicity material for ''Film/TheRoom'' used the term "ragin' Cajun" several times to describe Tommy Wiseau, who's [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent pretty clearly not originally from America]], let alone Louisiana.

* ZZ from the 2015 series of ''Wrestling/WWEToughEnough'' was pretty much this is real life, being a Loiusiana boy who worked on an alligator farm. He naturally played it up during the show and placed second out of the male contestants (largely due to his popularity with the fans).

One of many ways to make a character more badass: Make him from UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. Maybe he honed his skills wrestling alligators in the bayou, maybe he has [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo powers]], but he's a native of TheBigEasy and he's gonna let you know it.

* A fantasy episode of ''TheSimpsons'' reimagines Chief Wiggum and Principal Skinner as hard-living New Orleans police detectives. Wiggum is still from Springfield in this continuity (having fled town because of "massive corruption" on his part), but Skinner claims to have actually been born and raised in N'awlins. Their nemesis is the [[LargeAndInCharge corpulent crime boss]] Big Daddy, who is voiced by Gailard Sartain - who with his French last name could possibly be a real-life Cajun, despite hailing from Oklahoma.

* The movie ''Film/SouthernComfort'' is about a bunch of Southern city boy National Guardsmen who make the mistake of stealing some boats from some swamp-dwelling Cajuns.
* Many of the New Orleans natives in ''Film/TheBigEasy'', particularly Remy [=McSwain=] (Creator/DennisQuaid).
* The NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent page notes that ActionHero Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme has been given a Cajun background in several of his movies, such as ''Film/UniversalSoldier'' and ''Film/HardTarget''. Technically an example, even though it's just a HandWave for his Belgian accent?
** Likely so, since if you've only heard a Cajun accent on movies and TV, you probably wouldn't know what a real one sounds like anyhow. Most writers certainly don't.

* Now, sure, Bobby Boucher from ''Film/TheWaterboy'' may be a soft spoken mama's boy - but let's just say that when he gets mad, it ain't pretty.
* There was a little-seen film from 1986 called ''Belizaire the Cajun'', with Creator/ArmandAssante in the title role. It's set just before the (American) Civil War, and shows Cajuns to be superstitious, crafty, and [[MuggingTheMonster very, very dangerous if you discriminate against them too much]].
* One of the {{Mooks}} in Wrestling/JohnCena's debut movie ''Film/TheMarine'' is from the Louisiana bayous, so he's more at home in the swamps of South Carolina (where the bad guys have fled with a kidnapped hostage in tow) than the rest of the gang. John Triton still manages to kill him with little trouble, though.
* Desiree Thibodeau in Film/GatorBait is a rare female example.

Note that Cajun does not mean from UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. In fact, New Orleans is specifically ''not'' Cajun, as the culture exists in the Acadiana region, whose urban center is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafayette,_Louisiana Lafayette]]. {{The Big Easy}}'s specific ethnic group is known as Creole. The word itself is a corruption of "Acadian", the term for the French-speakers of [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} eastern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, particularly New Brunswick]]. That's right--the Cajuns are originally from Canada. They trekked down to Louisiana by several routes after the UsefulNotes/FrenchAndIndianWar resulted in the transfer of Canada to British rule. As a result, the Cajuns have a Southern U.S. culture with French-Canadian roots, and are an ethnic group mainly living in southwestern Louisiana, but many creators [[TheyJustDidntCare can't tell the difference]]. See TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cajun for further details]]. Hint: New Orleans is more metropolitan/city, and Cajun is more pastoral/country (except the aforementioned Lafayette).
