* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Groundskeeper Willie on, whose belligerence and sociopathy leads to him declaring Scots to be the natural enemies of Englishmen, Welshmen, Japanese, and even ''other Scots'', in the quote at the top of the page. Willie has been identified as a Glaswegian ("...the ugliest man in Glasgow...") on at least one occasion, but has an accent of indeterminate origin and had been, at various points in time, [[NegativeContinuity said to hail from]] Edinburgh, Loch Ness, and "North Kilt-Town", before Willie himself finally cleared things up by declaring that he was ''actually'' from Kirkwall in Orkney.

* The Scotsman from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is more or less this trope's personification. Naturally, the first time he and Jack meet, he turns a minor issue that Jack was willing to compromise on into a full-on sword fight to the death that lasted a third of the episode and obliterated most of the surrounding landscape right up until it was interrupted by [[BigBad Aku]]. He has a machine gun in place of a prosthetic leg.

* Another indecipherable comic example: Middenface [=McNulty=] from ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'''s ''ComicBook/StrontiumDog''.
* Also from ''2000 AD'', ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' stories have, on occasion, featured a [[WriterOnBoard Scottish comic book artist]] Kenny Who? (yes, the question mark is part of his name) who, in his first appearance, is driven to violence by his frustration with life in Mega-City-One [[AuthorTract and the comic book industry]].
** One story featured a day of celebration in the Big Meg that completely parodies this trope complete with Synthi-Buckie, DeepFriedWhatever and mass riots as a result.
