D'Argo. Anthony Simcoe is 6'5" even before camera tricks are used. Then throw on the [[{{BFS}} qualta blade]] and military training, plus the prospect of Luxan [[UnstoppableRage hyper-rage]], for additional fear factor. He's a hybrid of two and three - while not a full GentleGiant, he does form genuinely close bonds with his shipmates and had a tender relationship with Chiana [[spoiler:until she cheated on him with his son]], and as for type three:
-->'''D'Argo:''' John, I've never put this into words before, but I love shooting things!
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Jayne Cobb, the brutal, thuggish mercenary on the team. Type one - a gruff, surly man with little in his life beyond guns, money and intimacy-free sex - although there were some hints that he had a well-concealed better nature, and if the show hadn't been cancelled he could well have developed into a type two, at least among friends.

** They don't come much bigger than Gregor Clegane. They don't call him The Mountain for nothing. In the books, he's even ''bigger'', towering at near eight feet tall.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones:''
** Hodor is a StoneWall version of this. He is very tall and has a wide frame, but he is a ReluctantWarrior who only fights when Bran wargs into him. He instead uses his strength and durability mostly for defensive purposes such as guarding/shielding and carrying the crippled Bran. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he suffers from BigGuyFatalitySyndrome, performing a HeroicSacrifice.]]
** Two things Robert Baratheon is proud of during his GloryDays are his HeroicBuild and his combat prowess.
** Wun-Wun served as the muscle for [[spoiler: the Northern army led by Jon Snow]] during Season 6. Bonus points for him being literally a giant. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he also suffers from BigGuyFatalitySyndrome near the end of said battle, dying from multiple injuries concluding with a fatal arrow shot to the eye.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': Since TheTeam is very large, three people fill the role as the go to guys when it comes to ass-kicking; Firestorm, Sara Lance / White Canary and Mick Rory / Heat Wave. Firestorm is a metahuman with firepowers, Sara is a highly trained former assassin and Mick Rory is a tall and large AxCrazy {{Pyromaniac}} with a flamethrower [[BloodKnight who loves fighting]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'': Helena once she joins the Clone Club after her HeelFaceTurn. While [[TheHero Sarah]], [[TheLancer Alison]], and [[FriendOnTheForce Art]] are competent in their own right, her being a {{Tykebomb}} has instantly made her the group's de-facto "muscle".

* ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'': Crash [=McLarson=] most resembles a Class 2. His special power is shifting into super size heights, sometimes triggered by his emotions.

** Who is interestingly ''not'' the strongest member of the crew. That honor would go to [[RobotBuddy Data]], whose non-aggressive programming prevents him from becoming a Type 5, barring some special circumstances.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Alfie seems to fill this role. While there isn't much physical violence for it being a kid's show, he's the strongest next to Patricia and has gotten physical before, usually when he's angry or afraid.

* "Series/GiantSaver": Ye Wanneng, the Steel Guard, and an ex-soldier, fills this role for the team. While short of being a GeniusBruiser, he is also usually the most level headed and a VoiceOfReason.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Willow, but she's an interesting case as she can fit as TheLancer, TheSmartGuy, and TheChick depending on what's needed, and who is around. However, she is repeatedly stated to be the heaviest hitter in the group once she properly develops her magic powers, even exceeding [[TheChosenOne Buffy]] herself.

* ''{{Misfits}}'': Kelly is '''far''' more violent and confrontational than any of the males in [[FiveManBand the group]], and was the only one to take decisive action when they were attacked by their AxCrazy probation worker, [[spoiler: killing him single-handedly by knocking him to the floor and kicking his head in, although he was about twice her size]]. She isn't physically large (she's about average height and build) or notably "butch", and does actually have quite a caring and sensitive personality. But she can often seem imposing due to her anger management issues and will blithely maul anyone who insults her - in fact, due to her power of {{telepathy}}, she will occasionally attack people just for ''thinking'' something that offends her in some way.

However, get them furious by messing with the other-you're in trouble.
