* One Castrol motor oil ad campaign has a demented Scot flogging people with a dipstick while uttering his catchphrase "Think wi' yer ''dipstick,'' Jimmy!" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nel4qVTOgg No, really.]]

* The Piper from Adventures in the Rifle Brigade. More than a century old, lives in a well from which he is summoned by means of a haggis on a fishing line, and his bagpipe causes ear bleeding on non-Commonwealth people and is made with the skin of the last guy who tried to take it from him. Thankfully, he doesn't speak, he just ''stares'' at you. Needless to say, this is a Creator/GarthEnnis comic.

* The Demoman from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is a self-proclaimed black Scottish cyclops psychopath. His weapons are grenades, bombs that stick to anything they touch called, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Stickybombs]], and an empty bottle of Scrumpy. See this in his [[http://www.steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=app&AppId=997&cc=US "Meet the Team" interview]]. His first three unlockable weapons; yet another kind of bomb, a massive [[CoolSword Claymore]] (which [[EvilWeapon is haunted and craves heads]]) and a shield which allows him to make berserker style charges. His other unlockable weapons include more swords and a high-yield pressure-activated explosive on a stick used as a melee weapon. You may notice a theme here.

* ''Brighton Belles'', the short-lived TransatlanticEquivalent to ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'', made Sophia's character a Glaswegian, Josephine[[note]]Actually, she grew up in the Highlands, but she had a Glaswegian accent[[/note]]. Not only did Josephine have a nasty temper herself, but her late husband was implied to have been a Glaswegian criminal (in the same way as Sophia's was implied to have be a New York gangster).

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' zig-zags this trope in a ''really'' weird and spoilerrific way. [[HighTurnoverRate This year's Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher]] is a BraveScot and a veteran Auror named Alastor "[[MadEye Mad-Eye]]" Moody. From the outset, he's gruff, paranoid, and occasionally violent and unhinged. He also apparently enjoys terrorizing his students, as seen when he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG4XLZUAot4 demonstrates the three Unforgivable Curses in front of them]] and when he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HobPkv5TELA torments Draco Malfoy after transmogrifying him into a ferret]]. Nonetheless, he seems to be a genuinely good guy and an invaluable mentor to Harry. Near the end of the book, though, [[spoiler:he ultimately reveals himself to be the mastermind behind Voldemort's return]]. But ''then'' [[spoiler:he turns out to be an impostor]]. In the later books, Mad-Eye Moody ([[spoiler:[[TheRealRemingtonSteele the real one]]]]) is noticeably less of a loose cannon.

** [[EvilOverlord Emperor Palpatine]] is played by Scottish actor Ian [=McDiarmid=], and you can occasionally hear hints of his natural accent ("[[https://youtu.be/dATuq8O3920 My mentor taught me everything about the Force, even the nature of the Dark Side]]").

Unless he's DrunkOnTheDarkSide, he's a ponderous, scheming [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] and MagnificentBastard, not a hot-headed hooligan.

* Johnny Red in ''Series/KeenEddie'', who won't hesitate to brawl with his brother-in-law over the slightest thing.
** To a lesser extent, Cecil Barrett in the episode "Citizen Cecil," who goes on a borderline rampage against the crew who robbed his boss' casino just to recover the soccer playoff tickets they stole from him during the robbery, due to sounding Scottish.
* Creator/JohnOliver's bit about the Scottish independence vote in ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' had him bring up how Scotland's national flower is the thistle and that, if the vote succeeded, their currency would be "sheep and threats" after losing the British pound sterling.
