* The Heavy Weapons Guy of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' carries a minigun weighing over three hundred pounds which costs $400,000 to fire for twelve seconds, and cackles insanely while using it. He's most likely to be the BoisterousBruiser, but if his presence is bigger than his physical size, think how big his presence must be.

* The Heavy Weapons Guy of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is this when he's on your team -- on the enemy team, he's TheBrute. He carries a minigun weighing over three hundred pounds which costs $400,000 to fire for twelve seconds, and cackles insanely while using it. He's most likely to be the BoisterousBruiser, but if his presence is bigger than his physical size, think how big his presence must be.

** In ''Videogame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', Wilhelm is the largest character of the group (though statistically he's more of a JackOfAllStats with a leaning towards StoneWall) though he's less of a psychotic brute and more of a taciturn mercenary. He eventually becomes TheBrute for Handsome Jack by the time of the second game.

* Guy in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' is a massive muscular fellow whose starting stats lean him towards a MightyGlacier [[AnAxeToGrind axe-wielder]]. [[BareFistedMonk Josef]] is the Big Guy of the {{Guest Star Party Member}}s.
* Sabin from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' definitely qualifies. Also Umaro, the yeti.
* As mentioned above, Barret Wallace from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', Zell and Selphie both fit this role, while also both occasionally becoming TheSmartGuy, for different reasons. Zell is the muscled brawler and Selphie is the best with weaponry and explosives.
* As does Steiner from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Freya can be this if she's not being TheLancer, and Amarant becomes this as well.

* Rhino from ''Videogame/WarFrame''. He is the heaviest Warframe and stands taller than any other frame except [[StatuesqueStunner Saryn]], and his Primed variant features some serious ShouldersOfDoom. He is built to fill the tank role in the group, both via his CC abilities and his enormous armor, health, and shield reserves. Aforementioned traits also allow him to use the heaviest weapons in the game without fear of making himself an easy target, since he can easily soak up the gunfire while dishing out immense damage in return.

* In ''VideoGame/LufiaAndTheFortressOfDoom'', Aguro's easily the largest (and only adult; [[OurElvesAreBetter Jerin]] is arguable) member of the party and the party's token BadassNormal.
** Dekar in ''VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals'' has the greatest might of any party member, even if [[IdiotHero he is lacking in the brains department]]. While Guy gets boosted to the team's obvious Big Guy in [[VideoGame/LufiaCurseOfTheSinistrals the remake]], Dekar's still got appreciable bulk.

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has the Iron Bull, who is explicitly called "The Muscle" in promo material. He's a heavily scarred Qunari mercenary, but he's really a BoisterousBruiser whose priorities are protecting the innocent and having fun. Cassandra may also qualify, as she's a sword-and-board type whose ShieldBash can act as a battering ram.

Completing the trifecta of warriors, Blackwall is another sword-and-board type who's [[StoneWall damn near impossible to kill]].
