** Except it isn't, because Riakrd Karstark's accent is actually thick Yorkshire, making this a subversion of the trope.

* In ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', this trope is in full force with planets such as Caledonia and Northwind being among the planets settled by Scots. The latter has a mercenary unit to its name, the Northwind Highlanders, who fall under the trope of the BraveScot, especially in the latter portion of the post-Jihad timeline. They are also some of the most passionate Mechwarriors in the series, especially the novels. This includes a scene where two Highlanders with a grudge [[GoodOldFisticuffs fight it out]] in a bar while the other Highlanders, including command officers, drink, officiate, and bet on the outcome of the two-man bar brawl. Later pieces demonstrate that in more extreme cases of internal strife, they can and will [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen fight fair against their own]] (they take to the field in their [[HumongousMecha Battlemechs]] and use live ammo, but intentionally aim low to avoid hitting the other pilots), but are [[TheCombatPragmatist bloody wicked scrappers]] against anyone else they see as an outsider.

** One memorable subversion was on ''Series/NotTheNineOClockNews'' where he burst into a pub, and demanded (in a typical ViolentGlaswegian voice) to know if a number of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast hard men]] were there. Upon finding out they weren't, he ordered a Campari and Soda in a CampGay voice.

** [[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."]] Usually, though, [=McDiarmid=] does a good job of making his accent ambiguous -- just compare [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05dT34hGRdg how he]] [[https://youtu.be/dATuq8O3920 sounds in]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DI8kkR9G0Q the movies]] with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBtbwhyBibI how he]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaXrL77mHQg sounds while]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKejfm2X5f0 giving interviews.]] Moreover, even when Palpatine ''does'' sound Scottish, he still isn't your stereotypical ViolentGlaswegian. Unless he's DrunkOnTheDarkSide, he's a ponderous, scheming [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] and MagnificentBastard, not a hot-headed hooligan.

* In general, English crime dramas like to throw in the odd ViolentGlaswegian as an obvious suspect -- usually as a RedHerring. This is particularly the case in more genteel settings, such as Oxford (in ''Series/InspectorMorse'' and ''Series/{{Lewis}}'') and [[MidsomerMurders Midsomer]] (even though those settings usually involve crime rates that make Glasgow's look downright mellow). Said Glaswegian is usually loud, hostile and obstructive to the police, (or alternatively, dour, taciturn and obstructive to the police) but seldom the actual killer. That is, if they're men: Glaswegian women are generally less confrontational in such series.

* The [[LizardFolk Bangaas]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' speak with thick scottish accents, a [[CharacterizationMarchesOn character trait that was kept on following games]], namely [=FFXII=]'s sequel ''Revenants Wings'' as well as ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2''. The Bangaas' description in the latter reads as follow: ''"Their violent tempers, powerful physique, and love of the battle make them at home on the front lines."'' You could easily consider them a race of [[ViolentGlaswegian Violent Glaswegians]].

* ''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.
