* The founding of Music/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.
** There are rumours that there was an actual fight for a bit, and then there was the question, and then the fight segued into a makeout session.

* Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine with their "Sealed with a [[UseYourHead Glasgow Kiss]]".

The stereotype may have come from existing stereotypes about the Scots and also some TruthInTelevision about Glasgow. Any metropolis in 19th and early 20th century Britain had a lot of urban poverty and crime. But in Glasgow it was compounded by sectarian tensions between the Irish Catholic immigrants and the native Protestants. In the interwar years, the city became notorious for "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_razor_gangs razor gangs]]", (often sectarian) gangs that were armed with knife-like razors. Today, the main surviving case of sectarian tension is the rivalry between [[BritishFootyTeams Rangers and Celtic]], one of the longest running and ugliest football feuds, and violence still happens to at least some degree at every game between the two.

Interestingly, while his father was Scottish (and Scrooge was raised in Glasgow and the Highlands) his mother was actually Irish, so he also has some of the FightingIrish inside him.

A connected stereotype is the "Ned" -- a young Glaswegian hooligan who wears tilted-up baseball caps, lots of gold bling and tracksuits, travels in packs, drinks [[BoozeBasedBuff Buckfast]][[note]]A tonic wine, popular among binge drinkers in Scotland[[/note]] by the gallon, and is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scNLfr1EP08 impossible to understand.]] This is a counterpart to the English "chav" stereotype.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}, since Shrek doesn't resort to such sterotypical actions as throttling someone, laying siege to the fortress, grinding someone's bones to make bread, decapitating entire villages, putting their heads on a pike, or cutting out their spleens and drinking their fluids, since villagers tend to misjudge Shrek when they run away and call him a big, stupid, smelly ogre, and when Shrek mishears Fiona's conversation with Donkey [[spoiler:about Lord Farquaad,]] he thinks that Fiona is talking about him when she mentions falling in love with an ugly, hideous creature.

* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', Scotland is an unseen character who was said to bully England, his younger brother (though England may be an UnreliableNarrator). A popular OriginalCharacter took this reference and ran with it (see Fan Works). Years later, however, Scotland was described by WordOfGod as "friendly and [[BraveScot brave]]" and a [[KindheartedCatLover cat lover.]] When he finally appears in the anime, he's serving as an Allied spy, and gives advice to England to blend in with the locals as he tries to escape from Italy in WW2.
