Notably, there are at least two fighting tropes [[TropeNamer named after the city]]. [[useYourHead The Glasgow Kiss]] is not to be confused with a GlasgowGrin, which is when somebody's cheek is sliced open from corners of the mouth, something the original razor gangs and more recent deliquents did to their enemies. It's worth mentioning that the royal motto of Scotland is "nemo me impune lacessit", Latin for "nobody attacks me with impunity".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': Cavendish and his co-conspirators manage to [[spoiler:throw off their captors for good]] in a pub in Scotland [[ExploitedTrope by appealing to this trope]]. The Scots Rugby team have just lost a televised match against England, and the escapees turn the patrons' built-up anger against the mostly English [[spoiler:hospital staff]] (by saying that the [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical latter are trying to claim 'dominion' over them]]).

* In 1944, a rumor spread that President Franklin Roosevelt had left his Scottish Terrier behind on an island, and sent a destroyer to fetch him back at great cost. Roosevelt drew on this trope (as well as ThriftyScot) in his response:
-->''You know, Fala is Scotch, and being a Scottie, as soon as he learned that the Republican fiction writers in Congress and out had concocted a story that I'd left him behind on an Aleutian island and had sent a destroyer back to find him—- at a cost to the taxpayers of two or three, or eight or twenty million dollars—- his Scotch soul was furious. He has not been the same dog since.''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sandor Clegane has shades of this. He claims to greatly enjoy violence and killing — the guilt-free killing of fighting other soldiers who are trying to kill you first. He will only fight someone once given an excuse, though once given an excuse he will happily rip your guts out. Still, instead of a hair-trigger temper, he's much more TranquilFury. Of course, Rory the actor is himself ''actually from'' Glasgow.

** Creator/MichelleGomez uses her natural Glaswegian accent when playing TheMaster, and Gomez's [[TheNthDoctor/DoctorWho incarnation]] (nicknamed "Missy") is at least as psychopathic as her predecessors. The InUniverse explanation is that she took a liking to Twelve's accent and copied it.

** 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 one of the more ruthless Doctors) 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.
*** Still, he's the first [=NewWho=]-Doctor to have gotten violent with someone without it being an attempt at self-defense. When Lord Sutcliffe starts shouting racist and sexist abuse at his companion Bill, the Doctor taps his shoulder, then slugs him in the face as soon as he turns back around.

** Missy, played by [[Creator/MichelleGomez a Glaswegian woman]], took a liking to Twelve's accent in-universe and copied it. She is as exactly as kill-happy as [[TheMaster her predecessors]], if not more.

See also BraveScot, BrooklynRage, {{Southies}}. The Irish, or at least {{Oir|eland}}ish, counterpart to this (assuming there is [[{{Scotireland}} a difference]]) is FightingIrish. Ironically, the NoTrueScotsman is often used to ''defy'' this trope.
