One thing to keep in mind with this character type is that it's the ''role'' and ''rank'' as opposed to just the personality that defines it. Pete from the WaltDisney canon is a classic example of the Brute personality type: a big dumb bully that just loves to throw his own weight around. However, he's generally used as a BigBad (or, in works like ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', TheDragon). As such, in most appearances, he is not technically a Brute.

Considering his aforementioned general role as the mean, stupid, and disrespected {{meat shield}} for his team, the Brute tends to be especially susceptible to HumiliationConga and TheWorfEffect. A Brute whose demeanor becomes {{implacable|Man}} will quickly ascend to the status of [[TheJuggernaut Juggernaut]], while the more [[HotBlooded emotionally volatile]] risk becoming TheBerserker. Be wary too, recruiters, of a Brute who [[PetTheDog pets the dog]], [[BruiserWithASoftCenter lest he prove to be]] a closet GentleGiant and, if you {{mistreat|ment Induced betrayal}} him once too often, may very well eventually pull a HeelFaceTurn (if not a HumiliationConga of his own) on you.
