* While eschewing the middle-to-upper class tones and furious screaming of most other British game reviewers, WebVideo/GuruLarryAndWez opt instead for low-brow jabs and dark chuckles delivered in an exaggerated version of Larry's Midlands accent.

While generally lighter in tone, Bundy nonetheless is every bit as scathing and unrelenting as his counterparts.

* [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas The Courier]] in WebVideo/CouriersMindRiseOfNewVegas is one, being a cynical, easily annoyed JerkWithAHeartOfGold. However, unless you pay attention to his BritishEnglish vocabulary, it's [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent not immediately obvious]] since his RealLife voice actor is a Chinese immigrant to Britain.

* David Mitchell's "incredibly posh and aristocratic" character in ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook''. He takes a number of different jobs like waiter, clothes store clerk, or vicar. He always gets contrasted to "that friendly Australian girl" who used to work in his place.
--> '''Waiter:''' ''"I saw you in here last week. I saw you drinking your soup. I saw you blowing and slurping and dunking your bread. We were watching you on the monitors in the kitchen, and we all thought you were a dick!"''
--> '''Store Clerk:''' ''"I've seen you in here before. I've seen you slouching around the place in your slip-on shoes and your motorcycle jacket, looking like a mechanic who's won the pools. I've seen your tin earring and your black marketeer swagger. We've all seen you, and we all thought you were a turd!"''
--> '''Vicar:''' ''"I saw you in here last week. I saw you reading the notices and talking about your views. and eating other peoples' biscuits. We were watching you from the vestry, and we all thought you were a bitch!"''
** Webb gets a turn as the Mean Brit in the "Hole in the Ring" sketch, parodying Anne Robinson. The problem is that he's not very good at it - his insults degenerate into calling people "gay" and flipping off the audience.

* [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson and James May]] can come across as this too at times. The former in particular was infamous enough for it that it got him airbrushed out of the history of ''Series/RobotWars'', which goes to show that even this trope has standards.
