* Zaalbar and Hanharr from the ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' series. Zaalbar is a quiet, shy fellow who lets Mission do the talking. (She even describes him as a [[GentleGiant "Big ol' softie"]]) Definitely a Class 2; piss him off (or threaten Mission), and he will carve you up. Hanharr is recruit-able only by Dark Side Exiles, and is an AxCrazy OmnicidalManiac who you ''gain'' influence with by ridiculing - definitely Class 1. Both of them are utter damage sponges, especially if you equip them with vibroblades.

* Eddie Riggs from ''BrutalLegend'' could be Class 5. A big guy, who is smart enough to put together cars in seconds (albeit easily made cars) and supposedly able to fix anything, and build anything. In many ways he fulfills the roles of The Big Guy, The Smart Guy and The Lancer, seeing himself mostly as the Roadie to Lars' front-man.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', Wrex falls neatly into class 1, although some of his dialogue hints that he may originally have been a class 5. In the [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 sequel]], the Tank-Grown krogan Grunt is a class IV while the ruthless mercenary Zaeed is a Class I, with Jack serving as a DarkActionGirl example.
** If Wrex survives, he becomes a clean Class 5 in the sequel. When you find him, he's on the way to re-uniting his people, a feat no one would ever believe possible.
*** Not only re-uniting, but doing so in a way which itself should be impossible from what we've heard of the krogan race - he's taken the ever-so-important krogan traditions that have been around for longer than the human race has been civilized, beaten them until they can't stand. At least if you believe his opponents and detractors.
*** Those very same Krogan traditions would enthusiastically agree with that approach. Beating things senseless is what the Krogan are there for.

** It should be pointed out that, thanks to their bio-modifications (such as skeletal grafts) and their PoweredArmor (those who have it, anyway), ''all'' Spartans can count as this. It's just that, compared to Elites, Brutes, and Hunters, they're average at best.
