* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]], in [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales any]] [[Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck incarnation]]. His rival, Flintheart Glomgold, while more of a schemer also qualifies.

* Normally this trope would be "no real life, please" but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Smeaton_(born_1976) John Smeaton]] [[GroinAttack kicked]] some serious [[IncrediblyLamePun terroristicles]] and proudly wears the Queen's Gallantry Medal for it. (All comedians had a field day.)

* The founding of FranzFerdinand subverts this. Nick [=McCarthy=] drunkenly stole Alex Kapranos' bottle of vodka at a drunken party in (where else?) Glasgow. On the edge of a fight, Kapranos asked [=McCarthy=]: "Can you play the drums"? It turned out he really couldn't, but they switched things around, and a band was born.

** The current incarnation of TheMaster is played by a Glaswegian [[spoiler:woman]].woman, who took a liking to Twelve's accent in-universe and copied it. She is as exactly as kill-happy as her predecessors, if not more.

* Alex Kilgour from the ''{{Sten}}'' series is a more...focused version. He's a a very highly-trained military operative, and prefers to do the violence with [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]]. He's from a [[HeavyWorlder heavy-gravity world]] though, so when he does hit things, they tend to die painfully.

** The [[Creator/SylvesterMcCoy Seventh]] and [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth]] Doctors both have Scottish accents. Seven and his English companion Ace are arguably an inversion, with Seven as the cool-headed [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] (although he's still plenty ruthless) and Ace as the MadBomber. The Twelfth Doctor, on the other hand, plays this trope for all it's worth. His accent is far more noticeable than Seven's, and he's the dourest and angriest Doctor since the [[Creator/WilliamHartnell First]]. He rarely gets physical, though, and he's still a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* In Music/PinkFloyd's album ''Music/TheWall'', there's a schoolmaster like this who terrorizes the students during "The Happiest Days of Our Lives" and "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2."

* In the episode "Hard Men" of the (London-based) 1970s cop series "The Sweeney", one Glasgow gangster kills another (who had, admittedly, kidnapped the first man's daughter) by shooting him with A VEREY (Flare) PISTOL; the victim goes up in a ball of flame and dies horribly, screaming; causing the dead man's friend to tell a policeman, "Did ye see that? Did ye? That was DIABOLICAL!"

* Agent 300 in ''Webcomic/Niels'', despite being raised as a high society gentleman, is more than capable of lapsing into this from time to time. His accent meets the requirement only when he's drunk (and he's a silly drunk, not a mean drunk), and his most notable act of violence is when he went on an offscreen RoaringRampageOfRevenge against [[spoiler: Niels for shooting Agent 250]]. He also threatened to break 250's arm if 250 started [[ForeignFanservice stuffing dollar bills into his kilt]].
