* Rodrigo Roa Duterte, former mayor of Davao City and 16th Philippine President whose tough stance against crime ([[WellIntentionedExtremist sometimes bordering on outright vigilantism]]) earned him the nickname [[RedBaron "The Punisher"]] by Time Magazine. During his term he managed to [[TheExtremistWasRight turn Davao City into one of the most affluent and highly progressive cities in the country]]. He's notorious for [[SirSwearsALot his potty mouth]] and his jokes which range from CrossesTheLineTwice to DudeNotFunny, leading to comparisons with DonaldTrump. All of these make him a [[{{Understatement}} really]] [[BaseBreaker polarizing]] figure.
