* Bartolomeo d'Alviano in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII Assassin's Creed 2]]''.
* Kiesha Phillips of ''BackyardSports''.
* Minsc of the ''Videogame/BaldursGate'' series -- a towering (especially for his homeland), boisterous, but childlike berserker whose solution to any problem is to [[LeeroyJenkins charge straight into the thick of things]] with [[PreAssKickingOneLiner battlecries]] like "Evil, meet my sword! [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Sword! Meet! Evil!]]" and "Buttkicking for goodness!" Any intelligent thoughts he has are attributed to his pet hamster, Boo, who he claims is really a "miniature giant space hamster" (possibly a reference to ''{{Spelljammer}}'', the infamous ''[[DungeonsAndDragons Dungeons & Dragons]] [[RecycledInSPACE IN SPACE]]'' supplement that actually had Giant Space Hamsters). Many other characters express exasperation with his antics, suggesting he get restorative magic for his head. The player can show exasperation, affection, or a combination of both where he starts off counseling prudence before being ground down to joining in on the festivities by the end. He has proven [[EnsembleDarkhorse incredibly popular with players]], however, and become somewhat emblematic of the series.
** Minsc is played by Jim Cummings, who is for all intents and purposes the voice-acting version of BrianBlessed.
** Also from the ''BaldursGate'' games is Korgan Bloodaxe, essantially the evil equivalent to Minsc. A psychotic ViolentGlaswegian dwarf who utters phrases like "This be a grand enough lot! Mayhap I won't be needin' to kill ye all anytime soon!", Korgan sexually harasses other party members (particularly a very virtuous halfling warrior who finds him repulsive), gives terrible advice, and has the lowest charisma score in the game, but supplies some pretty funny dialogue, and, of all potential {{NPC}} party members, is easily the best fighter. (At least until ''Throne Of Bhaal'', when [[spoiler:[[BloodKnight Sarevok]]]] takes the crown.)
* Gibari from the ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos'' series; moreso in the first game (which is the second chronologically), where he's older and has more life experience.
* In ''VideoGame/BattlefieldBadCompany'', Haggard fits this role as a redneck obsessed with explosions and gets his group in trouble by [[spoiler:charging into (and thus single-handedly invading) a neutral country in pursuit of gold]].
* Pey'j from ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil''. He's a [[ShorterMeansSmarter short]] SmartGuy rather than a BigGuy, but he's loud, somewhat crude, and fond of hanging around the local bar [[spoiler:which may or may not have to do with the fact that that's where he runs his [[LaResistance rebel organization]] from]]. Give him a [[ImprovisedWeapon wrench]] and he can still hold his own in a fight. He's a LargeHam in the most [[FunnyAnimal literal sense possible]].
* Bang Shishigami in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', even when he's not the token [[TheBigGuy Big Guy]]. To sum it up, he's a HighlyVisibleNinja who fights for justice... served with [[LargeHam A VERY BIG HAM]] and HotBlooded passion. Oh, and he also hits on Litchi Faye Ling ([[FanNickname AKA Boobie Lady]]) despite [[DirtyOldMan his age]] and [[DoggedNiceGuy his inability to win her heart]] is ''just one of the factors'' why HilarityEnsues whenever he steps his foot on the ground... ''nobody'' took him seriously. But even that's not enough to put down his burning passion of justice.
** [[CatGirl Taokaka]] and [[MsFanservice Makoto]] are both examples of female [[BoisterousBruiser Boisterous Bruisers]]
** And in Chrono Phantasma, we have an evil edition of the trope: [[BloodKnight Azrael]]. Dude loves fighting so much it's an addiction and he'd ramble so much on how much he loves fighting, laughing menacingly and loudly all the while... Oh and he ain't lying about him being a super-powered big guy who can pretty much kick your ass even when holding back.
* Kahn, an antagonist from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' is a lot like this after [[spoiler:his somewhat predictable HeelFaceTurn]].
* In ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', Ayla is a female example of this trope.
* Ulthane the Old One in ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}''. His idea of getting to know someone involves a brutal rumble -- one in which the BFS is completely useless and War needs to use his SuperMode just to ''hurt'' him. Then he starts an impromptu contest of "Whack-an-Angel" with War using the remnants of Heaven's forces trying to kill War. That said, Ulthane isn't nearly as simple-minded as a typical BoisterousBruiser: [[spoiler: he's one of the conspirators behind the premature Apocalypse and he is the UltimateBlacksmith that forged the InfinityPlusOneSword [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement of Plot Advancement]] used to destroy six of the Seven Seals.]]
* Oghren from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' fits fairly well too, being a drunken, boisterous sot and, besides [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sten]], one of the main tank fighters in the game. However, the game somewhat deconstructs the trope, as his tendencies have more or less ruined his life. He somewhat shapes up by the time the expansion rolls around, but only somewhat ([[LivingEmotionalCrutch or what else would the player character be there for]]?).
** Fergus Cousland, the Human Noble PC's older brother, has the personality of one, [[InformedAbility although we never get to see him fight]].
* Yangus of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII''. As the page notes, he does at one point attempt to crack a man over the head with a chair in which someone is still sitting.
* Both Barret Wallace and Cid Highwind embrace this trope in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''
** Wakka from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX,'' and to a lesser extent, Jecht.
** In particular, Jecht's appearance in ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' makes him look like he inhaled a whole bag of cocaine at once.
** Sabin in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. "You think a minor thing like the end of the world was gonna do me in?"
** Cid Pollendina of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' might just be the textbook ''Final Fantasy'' example. He's a [[TheBigGuy big]], bearded, fun-loving CoolOldGuy, and the only thing he likes more than going on adventures and fighting monsters is [[GadgeteerGenius building airships]]. Oh, and depending on the [[FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears game]], he's either 54 or [[BadassGrandpa 71 years old]].
** Zell of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. The guy never holds still for a second, and is the party's BareFistedMonk. His personality has, more or less, two settings: Cheerful Loud, and Angry Loud.
** Baku, the leader of the Thieves' Guild from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. The bounty hunter Lani is a villainous example, even being described as "Boisterous Woman" before we learn her name.
** General Zazarg from the ''Treasures of Aht Urhgan'' and ''Wings of the Goddess'' expansions of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' lives to be on the battlefield, generally laughing as he lets loose his [[LimitBreak weapon skills]]. Not ironically, he is one of the player base's favorite characters.
** Snow from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Think Zell, but more...and with a [[GentleGiant fuzzy inside]].
* ''FireEmblem'' games often have one or two of these guys each game (generally an Axe wielder of some kind). Fargus in ''Fire Emblem'' (NPC) and Largo in ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' (NPC in ''Radiant Dawn'') are both good examples, and both Berserkers too.
** Other charas that fit the Boisterous Bruiser bill are Dart the Pirate (Fargus's second hand and a playable character) in ''Fire Emblem'' and Ross the Journeyman in ''The Sacred Stones''. And yep, both of them can be promoted into Berserkers.
** Dozla from ''Sacred Stones'', too--another Berserker. Always laughing, [[LargeHam being hammy]], and smashing enemy skulls with his trusty axe.
** Ross's bruiser traits are InTheBlood: his father Garcia is one of these too. In Garcia's case he's the type who fought heartily but later settled down (once Ross was born ''and'' his wife Lisa died), yet when Ross joins Eirika's crew, he decides to not be less and joins in too, re-embracing his BoisterousBruiser side. This is seen in his very badass FamousLastWords that come if he dies in the game ("I have no regrets. This was always my fate!") and his supports with Seth, Gilliam and Dozla. (Though he ''does'' use common sense once in a while, like in his supports with Neimi and Ross.)
** Not a Berserker, but even more of a Boisterous Bruiser, would be Boyd from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''. His interactions with [[TheHero Ike]] are hilarious, though not quite as much as his [[SlapSlapKiss interactions with]] Mist.
** Another non-Berserker, the Axefighter/Warrior Bartre. Especially his ''Rekka no Ken'' incarnation, where he keeps wanting a rematch with his rival and love interest Karla and his "death" quote has him swearing he'll be back to action ASAP?
** FE's most triumphant ''female'' example, Vaida!
-->'''Vaida''': Look at that! Bowmen as far as the eye can see! Mark! Do you have something against me? Heh, you know better than that. Let me tell you, Vaida is not your average wyvern rider! Mark! Sit back and watch me perform!
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us many of them, most notably Basilio, Vaike, Gregor, and Owain. [[spoiler: (More meaningful once you remember that Vaike and Gregor can be potential fathers for Owain.)]] Cynthia might be a mix of this trope and GenkiGirl, [[spoiler: and she and Owain can potentially fall in love.]]
* ''Videogame/GearsOfWar'' gives us Private Augustus Cole, NUMBER EIGHTY-THREE...THE COLLLLLLLLLEEEEEE TRAAAAAIIIIINNNNN!!!!
* ''HarvestMoon: Grand Bazaar'' has two, in the forms of town mayor Felix and carpenter Wilbur.
* Black Whirlwind from ''JadeEmpire''; also a good example of the AxCrazy.
* As affable as he is rough-and-ready, [[StuffBlowingUp Heavy Weapons Expert]] Gus Tarballs from ''JaggedAlliance 2'' definitely qualifies.
* Francis from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''. He treats the ZombieApocalypse as the world's biggest bar fight.
* Kyle from ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar''. In the remake, he also briefly becomes a rather ugly WholesomeCrossdresser to fool other bandits. His brash mannerisms don't sit very well with his {{Tsundere}} girlfriend Jessica.
* In ''ManaKhemia'', Flay exemplifies this trope.
* [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent President]] Michael Wilson from ''MetalWolfChaos''. Between both poles of {{Eagleland}} and the '''''[[HotBlooded BURNING]] [[PatrioticFervor AMERICAN JUSTICE]]''''' lie {{Pre Ass Kicking One Liner}}s and more HotBlood.
--> '''''[[LimitBreak HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW!?!?!?!]]'''''
* Khelgar Ironfist from ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2''. A dwarf who aspires to be a monk because he likes to punch stuff and joins your party because you seem good at getting into fights.
* ''PangYa'''s Uncle Bob. A retired burly policeman who tends to spout out about 'The power of of his heart' and likes to let out hearty laughs here and there... and '''''loves''''' [[TrademarkFavoriteFood fried chicken]], to the point of humorously abusing his caddie Lola to get fried chicken. Oh and he's [[DoggedNiceGuy proposing]] Cecilia and is '''''very forward''''' about it.
* Another female example: Kanna Kirishima from ''SakuraTaisen''. She often manages to be even manlier than the male protagonist. She also counts in the animated version.
* Another protagonist version of the Boisterous Bruiser: Haohmaru from ''SamuraiShodown''. He fights, he loves it, he likes boozing off with his sake, he tends to inspire a lot of the younger generations (like RedHeadedHero Shizumaru) with his stern advices about battle. In fact, if there is trouble on the land, he's usually wandering around looking for good fights here and there, and either the BigBad have to hunt him down themselves for their purposes, or he just approach them, ask if they're strong and fight for the sake of good fight, not quite saving the world (that's the job for the heroine [[FriendToAllLivingThings Nakoruru]]).
* ''SoulSeries'': Arguably, one could call Yoshimitsu a Boisterous Bruiser. In ''Soul Calibur II'', most of his quotes at the beginning of a match are very threatening and menacing. His victory quotes, however, shift between CloudCuckoolander and Boisterous Bruiser.
-->'''Yoshimitsu:''' ''(very loud)'' I am Yoshimitsu! ''(much like an aside)'' Had enough?
:: Another one is where he simply laughs and claps with his feet.
* ''StreetFighter''
** E. Honda, all the way.
** Zangief even more so.
** What, no Hakan or El Fuerte?!
* ''{{Suikoden}}'' games usually have this.
** Viktor is the [[SuikodenI original]] ''Suikoden'' Boisterous Bruiser. He comes back for the [[SuikodenII second installment]].
** The [[SuikodenIII third game's]] Boisterous Bruiser is probably... Geddoe's sai-wielding henchman Ace.
** The [[SuikodenIV fourth one]] has a slightly more serious, but still Boisterous Bruiser King Lino en Kuldes.
** And for the [[SuikodenV fifth game]]... General Boz Wilde.
*** Also, Wilhelm of the Lindurm Mercenaries.
* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' has plenty of these:
** Bowser acts as one in games [[EnemyMine where he joins with the heroes]]. He plays this role even as a villain.
** And there's-a also-a Wario! Especially apparent in his ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' sub-series.
** [[VideoGame/PaperMario O'Chunks]] is a cross between this and DumbMuscle. But he's ''adorable''.
* There aren't many obvious Boisterous Bruisers in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', but the closest you can get is probably the old, chain-ball swinging, singing Balmar general Baran Doban. Even when he's old, he's still full of hotblood and makes a lot of wise battle insights and becomes the rival of one of the mains Touma Kanou (otherwise Sanger if Touma is not the picked protagonist), indirectly training him... and later makes a HeelFaceTurn. His theme song is practically a theme song that ANY Boisterous Bruiser would ''love'' to sing (''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOO7cT0ecOI&feature=related Ware koso waaaa... Ware koso waaaa... BARAN DOBAN! FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!]]'')
** Excellen Browning is somewhere between being a Boisterous Bruiser and a HardDrinkingPartyGirl.
** A more accurate Boisterous Bruiser would be Ricardo Silvera of the Masou Kishin part of SRW. Apparently the oldest of the Elemental Lord Heralds, he is pretty jolly, [[TokenMinority black]], pilots the tanking Elemental Lord Zamzeed, which require him to charge to the enemies (though he's more a GeniusBruiser), hangs around with Masaki like a big bro, even training an ArrogantKungFuGuy like Yang Long, and has a crush on [[ProperLady Tytti]]. And likes making up gambles to make things exciting. His silliness aside, he's still a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:he got tragically killed in front of Tytti right when their romance has any chance to bloom, due to TakingTheBullet. And probably due to the lack of story depth during the ages of the Classic Timeline, he's largely forgotten after his replacement Mio comes around. Ricardo was DemotedToExtra.]]
** A very, very rare case of a Boisterous Bruiser also being the main protagonist (well, one of two possible at least) is Rand Travis of ''Super Robot Wars Z''. A huge mechanic who has all manner of silly expressions and mannerisms. Also tends to be extremely HotBlooded and, much like Baran Doban above, has an [[EarWorm incredibly catchy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLbeCR1B27I theme song]] that lets everyone know who just showed up (well... his mecha's name at least... although it does also use his nickname of "The Crusher").
* Captain Falcon and King Dedede in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. And, indeed, their [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} own]] [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} series]].
* Max of ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia''. [[VerbalTic Yeah!]]
* Moses of ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia''.
* The Heavy Weapons Guy from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. His official bio claims he's TheQuietOne, but his appearances in the "Meet The Team" videos are much more along these lines.
** The Soldier and Demoman are also like this. So is the Scout, or at least, he certainly likes to believe he's this. [[VerbalTic BOINK!]]
** But none so much as man's man ([[JustForPun and Mann's man]]) [[TestosteronePoisoning Saxton Hale]], who is best described as a cross between [[LandDownUnder Crocodile Dundee]] and Charles Atlas, in charge of a major corporation.
* Paul Phoenix from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' grows into one, especially after the TimeSkip whereas he starts developing a big, hearty attitude of 'Being the Toughest Guy in the Universe'. It helps that he's kinda ''[[IdiotHero idiotic]]'' and is quite the [[LargeHam ham]], especially when he's using his deathfist.
-->"Nothing like a good work out!"\\
"No pain, NO GAIN!"\\
"Any time! Any place! '''BRING IT ON, YA ALIENS!!!'''"
* A villainous example is Yashiro Nanakase from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. In the side of good we have Ralf Jones, Joe Higashi, Tizoc/Griffon Mask, and Raiden/Big Bear after his HeelFaceTurn.
* Most Gorons particularly Darunia of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' in the ''Zelda'' series are Boisterous Bruisers, as is Yeto the Yeti of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** Try not to laugh when Darunia congratulates Link on a job well done by hitting him on the shoulders and knocking him to the ground.
* Mega from ''[[TonyHawkProSkater Tony Hawk's American Wasteland]]''. An eternally shirtless oil rig worker with a license to handle any kind of heavy machinery and a tendency to ditch his responsibilities to pick up women, Mega has NoIndoorVoice and is in perpetual party mode.
* Yuugi Hoshiguma from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} 11: Subterranean Animism'' plays this role alongside HardDrinkingPartyGirl. She picks a fight just to "test your strength", all while drinking sake, which ''[[MemeticMutation not even drop]]''! Afterwards, she just has a big laugh about how much stronger humans are nowadays, and invites you back to party some more.
** And before Yuugi, there was Touhou's other oni, the fight-hard-party-harder Suika Ibuki. Not surprisingly, the Reimu+Suika encounter with Yuugi mentions that they used to be best friends.
* One of the oddest examples is in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'', or more accurately, its expansion. The Pit Lord Hero is a giant centaur demon who initially seems like a standard evil villain. However, his StopPokingMe quotes show him to actually be a Boisterous Bruiser -- with lines like "You know what burns my ass? A flame about this high." and "This situation calls for some... finesse.... GRAAAAAGH!"
** Seems to be shaping up to be the [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of the recently-announced [[PandaingToTheAudience pandaren]] in WoW.
* Gallows in ''VideoGame/WildArms3'' fits practically every point in the description to a tee.
* Maniac from the ''VideoGame/WingCommander'' games, especially ''Prophecy'' where he doubles as a SergeantRock with a [[LargeHam big slice of ham in his jaws at all times]].
* Many ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' villains became some degree of Boisterous Bruiser in the transition to the arcade game. It's almost plausible for some of the characters, such as Juggernaut or Blob, but the standout is the final boss, Magneto. LargeHam + EvilLaugh + BlindIdiotTranslation = One of the greatest {{Boisterous Bruiser}}s of our time.
-->""X-Men! Welcome... TO YOUR DOOM!"
-->"WELCOME TO DIE!!!"
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Grunt isn't quite as loud as most examples, defaulting to a growl, but he can walk the walk about as well as any other. It's telling that his individual meet-up in the Citadel DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' involves him having broken out of hospital (poorly - krogan don't climb very well), gotten drunk, climbed a monument on the Presidium, thrown a bottle of [[GargleBlaster ryncol]] at a C-Sec police car, then stolen it while it was on fire, crashed it into a noodle joint, and devoured vast amounts of ramen. There's also Ashley, who has no trouble boozing, fighting or both - her meet-up in Citadel is a drinking contest - but merges it with ReligiousBruiser, and James, who considers sparring with his commander to be an entirely acceptable way of telling his life story, flirts with everyone female he meets and enjoys a beer or three.
* The siblings [[BrotherSisterTeam Bran and Norah]] from ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues''. They are a duo of Barbarians, who are both fun-loving and easy-going when it comes to most things in life. Both quite enjoy hard battles and will sometimes be a little competitive over which of them is a better warrior.
