** The [[Creator/SylvesterMcCoy Seventh]] and [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth]] Doctors both have Scottish accents. Seven and his English companion Ace [=McShane=] are arguably an inversion, with Ace as the MadBomber and Seven as the cool-headed [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] (although Seven was still plenty ruthless). 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.

** The Glaswegian-accent packing Twelfth Doctor mostly does verbally violent and rude. (It's still ''very'' unwise to [[TranquilFury piss him off]] though.) ** His Seventh incarnation ZigZagged it; he had less of an accent, and wasn't overtly violent most of the time (he tended to farm that out to his juvenile delinquent of a Companion), but he was a scheming mastermind who tended to leave a trail of merry wreckage in his wake. ** The current version of the Master is played by a Glaswegian [[spoiler: woman.]]

* In the episode "Hard Men" of the (London-based) 1970s cop series "The Sweeney", one Glasgow gangster kills another (who had, admittedly, kidnapped the first man's daughter) by shooting him with A VEREY (Flare) PISTOL; the victim goes up in a ball of flame and dies horribly, screaming; causing the dead man's friend to tell a policeman, "Did ye see that? Did ye? That was DIABOLICAL!"

A violent or menacing character on British television, especially if [[TheAlcoholic a raving drunk]] or a [[CrazyHomelessPeople mad homeless man]], will often have a [[UsefulNotes.{{Glasgow}} Glasgow]] [[UsefulNotes.BritishAccents accent]], since Glaswegian is a very good accent and dialect for uttering threats.

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]] by the gallon, and is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scNLfr1EP08 impossible to understand.]]

* ''FanFic/AScotsmanInEgypt'' is the tale of how Scotland conquered the world, thanks in large part to its inhabitants being, well, Scottish. The sight of insane men in kilts and huge swords is enough to scare enemies, and that's ''before'' they charge. ** Others are badass in other ways as well. The Scottish system of spies and assassins is never once defeated (and that includes the one where the spymaster was ''dead''), their kings fight, plot and plan like no one else, and while there are the odd exceptions like [[AfraidOfBlood Prince David]], it's because their badassery was instead combined into Angus the Mauler, a man who terrified Russians (up to then, the ''only'' people to stand up to the Scots in close combat) and singlehandedly killed an elephant. ** Highlander infantry outnumbered two to one, facing infantry, cavalry, catapults... and stil win. ** Doesn't stop there either. The Timurids tried to invade Europe, bringing 9,000 men with them. Truly, an unmatchable force... except for the ''15,000'' Scots waiting for them. Turns out Scots are just as good at fighting as they are making more Scots.

* ''Film/TheWindThatShakesTheBarley'': A sadly TruthInTelevision example.

** [[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.

* Anime dub/manga translation example: English language interpretations of violent ChurchMilitant Alexander Anderson from ''{{Hellsing}}'' have conferred a Scottish accent on him even though he has no official nationality and works at an Italian orphanage. "Anderson" ''is'' a Scottish clan, so it's not like they pulled the concept out of thin air, but it's ''also'' an English and Scandinavian name entirely separate from the Scottish Andersons. * A more PG-13 version exists in the form of Johnny [=McGregor=], the Scottish member of the European "Majestics" team in ''{{Beyblade}}''. He's got the red hair and the attitude, and is described as a "True Scotsman", playing Tennis and Golf as well. He's even described as "The Gladiator of Glascow".
