* René St. Charles from ''Literature/{{Samhain Island}}'' is described as having "muscles that could rival a wrestler" and does most of the dirty work. If it wasn't for the intervention of Miss Vargas [[spoiler: he would have ended up shooting a thirteen-year-old.]]

Trope misuse as written. Reworked Yammy, who is this trope and removed Nnoitra, who is not this trope.
* Yammy Llargo and Nnoitra Gilga from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' are Aizen's brutes. The former is the classic stereotype, being a DumbMuscle bruiser, whose powers are linked to [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever size]] and [[MightyGlacier strength]], while Nnoitra is a {{Death Seek|er}}ing hardcore BloodKnight and StrawMisogynist. Both rely entirely on brute force, both are utterly despicable, and neither has any [[LackOfEmpathy empathy]] for anybody. [[BloodKnight Kenpachi Zaraki]] is this for [[TokenEvilTeammate all of Soul Society]].

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Yammy Llargo is an unskilled mass of raw temper and Nnoitra Gilga from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' are Aizen's brutes. The former rage, who lives for destroying and consuming souls and never develops the spiritual skills that make other Espada and even Fracciones so dangerous. He is the classic stereotype, being a DumbMuscle bruiser, whose lowest-ranking member of the Espada until his rage-fuelled Resureccion is released, which powers are linked him up to [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever size]] become the strongest, angriest, most violent and [[MightyGlacier strength]], while Nnoitra most thoughtless of all Espada. As a result, he is a {{Death Seek|er}}ing hardcore BloodKnight viewed as an embarrassment by the Espada and StrawMisogynist. Both rely entirely on brute force, both are utterly despicable, and neither has any [[LackOfEmpathy empathy]] for anybody. [[BloodKnight Kenpachi Zaraki]] is this for [[TokenEvilTeammate all of an unworthy opponent by the Soul Society]].Reapers.

He is usually [[TheBully a bully]], with an [[HairTriggerTemper hot temper]], and more often than not, also [[DumbMuscle very stupid]], though [[GeniusBruiser there are exceptions]]. SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability are common among [[{{Supervillain}} powered varieties]]. Female brutes are rare outside of [[AmazonBrigade all-women groups]], although not unheard of.

* In the ''Literature/ErebusSequence'', Golia, the most physically imposing of the [[{{Mutant}} Orfani]], is also both the nastiest and stupidest. He's being prepared for a role as dumb muscle, but thinks he's being prepared to be the next king. (He doesn't genuinely care, and just wants to strike out at people who think they're better than him.)

* The [[HumanoidAbomination Osthan]] from ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' could be seen as this; however, unusually for this trope, they avert DumbMuscle, instead being a group of [[GeniusBruiser Genius Bruisers]].
