* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' features [[spoiler:Jasper]], a massive individual who's strong enough to evenly match [[TheLeader Garnet]] one-on-one. While she shares many standard brute tendencies- being a bully who likes to yank people around, and sporting an impressive SlasherSmile- she's generally more articulate and intelligent than the standard depiction of the trope- and seems to have a case of WorthyOpponent going on for Steven's MissingMom.

* This fits the depiction of Thymilph from ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' pretty well. A gorilla that is LargeAndInCharge and the first of the four generals that Simon and crew encounter.

** ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniamk2'': Among the Four Felons, Judge The Hard/[[DubNameChange CFW Judge]] is always AxCrazy and he is an OmnicidalManiac and a BloodKnight. He is also the very first opponent the player has to face.
** ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNaptuniaVictory'': Copyliace/[[DubNameChange Copypaste]] and Magiquone/[[DubNameChange Arfoire]] fit this role, since they are the main fighters of the Seven Sages. Copyliace is a BoisterousBruiser and a DumbMuscle who thinks he is the strongest and loves destroying stuff, while Magiquone has a violent HairTriggerTemper and she thinks MurderIsTheBestSolution.

* During the last story arc of K.A. Applegate's ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', and the books leading up to it, the kids reflect that Visser Three is an incompetent tactician and instead relies on technological advantages; he's pushed for all-out war since the beginning. "He doesn't know tactics," Jake says, "he fights with a sledgehammer."
* Adus in Creator/DavidEddings' ''[[TheElenium Elenium]]'' trilogy. "Just put armor on a gorilla and you've got him." He's a mentally-handicapped thug who serves [[DragonInChief Martel]] as his best enforcer and killer. Martel considers Adus to be little more than a weapon ("I use him for killing people") and everyone who meets him looks down on him due to his stupidity and lack of hygiene. He has all the hallmarks of the personality type too, being [[DumbMuscle dumb]], but a savante when it comes to small unit tactics, willing to cut through his own men just to get to the heroes, and lacking the ability to so much as read.

* Ser Gregor Clegane (AKA "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Mountain that Rides]]") from ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' is this to a T. He's not on any inner circle, in part because he's too [[AxCrazy psychotic]] for that, and because [[TheChessmaster Lord Tywin]] doesn't really keep an inner circle, (he has one or two people he genuinely consults with, the rest are dupes that he manipulates) however he is Tywin's choice for virtually all of the dirty and bloody work that needs to be done, and shows real taste for and skill at it. He's also the WorldsStrongestMan, and will gleefully show it off.

** 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]].

* 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.]]
