** Ser Amory Lorch is a [[PetRat far less impressive]] Brute for the Lannisters - he's nothing more than a vicious, dimwitted thug, lacking Clegane's SuperStrength and [[TheDreaded fear factor]]. His only conceivably useful quality is his [[WouldHurtAChild utter ruthlessness]].

* ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' has well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Brutes]] (Species name: Jiralhanae). One is pictured above without a helmet. They're scarier without helmets on!
** They're even worse if they're toting a [[DropTheHammer Gravity Hammer]].
** We also have Hunters (Or Mgalekgolo), even ''bigger'' aliens with huge-ass shields and {{BFG}}s for hands. [[DemonicSpiders If they're not roaring at you and blowing you to bits with their weapons]], [[BossInMookClothing they're roaring at you and bashing anything near them to bloody shredded ribbons and scrap metal]]. They are not DumbMuscle though.
*** In fact, they're damn near GeniusBruiser instead, thanks in part to the fact that they're essentially [[TheWormThatWalks A GIANT COLONY OF MICROSCOPIC WORMS]] [[OhCrap FITTED INTO STARSHIP-CLASS ARMOUR WITH A POWERFUL LASER CANNON STRAPPED TO THEIR ARM.]]

** In the Duelist Kingdom arc, Panik is The Brute to the rest of Pegasus' eliminators. A gigantic man with a sadistic streak, Panik gets a real kick out of tormenting opposing players, but is really a coward at heart. He uses flamethrowers to disorient his opponents, and after losing to Yami, actually tries to kill him. Bandit Keith Howard is essentially a Brute who got away, having the personality, but being loyal to no one but himself. Among his henchmen, DumbMuscle Zygor could also be seen as a Brute-ish type.

A gigantic man with a sadistic streak, Panik gets a real kick out of tormenting opposing players, but is really a coward at heart. He uses flamethrowers (or, in the manga, a spring-loaded garrote built into the dueling platform) to disorient his opponents, and after losing to Yami, Yami Yugi, actually tries to kill him.him. It's implied rather strongly that he's actually a very bad Duelist, and relies on psyching his opponents into making mistakes to stand a chance against foes above his weight class like Mai Valentine. When he realizes this ''won't'' work on [[{{Determinator}} Yugi]], he has a VillainousBreakdown. Bandit Keith Howard is essentially a Brute who got away, having the personality, but being loyal to no one but himself. Among his henchmen, DumbMuscle Zygor could also be seen as a Brute-ish type.

* Viede from the Sinners in ''ChronoCrusade'' fills this role, although in the manga he's actually something of a GentleGiant and a GeniusBruiser. The anime, however, plays him completely straight -- most of what he does involves punching his hand into his fist and laughing evilly when he's about to smash things.

* Agatio from ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age'' is an [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy unusually clever example]], despite Alex and the official strategy guide writing him off as mere DumbMuscle. He's [[CombatPragmatist sharp enough to fight dirty]], hits like a truck... oh, and did we mention he's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] [[KillItWithFire Adept]] with a huge variety of unique and powerful spells at his disposal? The good news is that he defers to authority. The bad news? He thinks Prox plans to TakeOverTheWorld, and is quite determined to make it happen...

** [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]] served this role among the Disney Villains in the original game, though ironically being the weakest villain ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI.'' She is one of the group physically, relying on his deadly casino traps more formidable battlers, capable of subduing [[BadassInCharge King Triton]], and in her first boss fight, she is nearly invulnerable due to fight.her never-ending spin attack that deflects any keyblade strike. Ursula's giant form really cements her role as the brute; she is the largest of the villains (one of the larger members initially), where she is relentlessly attacking you with powerful magic. Like the other Kingdom Hearts brutes, she isn't dumb; she is capable of manipulating her enemies.
