----
* Kanna Kirishima from ''SakuraTaisen'', a rare female [[TheBigGuy Big Guy]] -- who is an {{Amazonian|Beauty}} musclebound type with [[TheIdiotFromOsaka rough-hewn manners]], but also [[BoisterousBruiser a cheerful and smiling attitude]].
* 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.
** With the reveals from ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'', we can mix type 5 into that... he has a Ph. D. in Russian Literature!
** While not nearly as massive, the Soldier and Demoman also qualify, as Class-4s.
* The ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' series has Murray; the team's strongman and getaway driver. He was more a burden than anything else in [[VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus the first game]], but really came into his own in the [[VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves second]] and [[VideoGame/Sly3HonorAmongThieves third]] games, wherein he was shown single-handedly knocking the stuffing out of entire armies of mooks, all while ChewingTheScenery like no one else.
** The others even occasionally call him "Big Guy."
* Dekao from ''[[MegaManBattleNetwork Rockman.EXE]]'' (known as Dex in the American dub).
* Bowser in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' and ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario''. He's also the Id in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario's'' PowerTrio. He ping-pongs between being Class 1 and Class 4 -- he's [[TokenEvilTeammate technically a bad guy,]] and he won't hesitate to remind you of this fact, but he mostly just comes off as obnoxious as opposed to downright ''evil.''
** His appearence in MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory is a solid Class 4, shouting about most everything while boasting stats that are almost double the M-Bros' at a lower level. Though it's understandable because he's by himself out there.
* Double H in ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil.'' He's largely a Class 3 --while he acts quite tough, especially when it [[LetsGetDangerous gets down to brass tacks]], he's quite affable and fun-loving beneath it all.
* Brick from ''Videogame/{{Borderlands}}'' is this trope to a Class 1 Berserker tee. In the second game, he's more a Class 4.
** ''Videogame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has Salvador and Krieg, who are both Class 4. Both are openly psychotic in their own way, with Krieg in particular being so insane that he seems incapable of talking in anything but nonsense.
* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'''s [[TheSquad Noble Team]] heavy weapons trooper Jorge-052. As an older Spartan-II, Jorge is the physically largest Spartan in Noble team standing at 7'4, 320 pounds. He's a Type-2, a GentleGiant who is markedly more stable than most of his team-mates and has a wide sentimental streak.
** 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.
* Gan Isurugi from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'', who's a card-carrying Class 3. Ditto [[LargeAndInCharge school principal]] Raizo Imawano.
* Largo Potter from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' is a Class 4, whose presence becomes even larger whenever vegetables become concerned. And for bonus, he uses an [[{{BFG}} Anti-Tank Lance]].
* '''Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!''' in ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', Taro (subverted as he's a meatshield) in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'', and Mr. Champloo in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}''. Sapphire has elements of this though she's TheChick.
* [[CoolOldGuy Drachma]] of ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is an intelligent variation of this trope.
* The [[SuperStrength "Power"]] characters from the Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog series all of them being of various types, particularly [[RedHeadedHero Knuckles the Echidna.]]
** Interestingly, [[CuteBruiser Amy]] can qualify too despite generally being billed as a [[SuperSpeed "Speed"]] type.
* Kanji from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is a textbook Class 3 (JerkWithAHeartOfGold). Chie is a CuteBruiser type.
* [[CrazyAwesome Minsc]] from the ''BaldursGate'' series is a ChaoticGood BoisterousBruiser type. He enjoys watching squirrels play, long walks in the forest, and beating the crap out of villains with a [[{{BFS}} really big sword]].
* Kimahri from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is good example of this, being a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Ronso]] and holding off Seymour Natus on the Bevelle Highbridge while Yuna and co. escape.
** If not him, then Auron. Tall, quiet, undeniably badass and whose natural stat growth has the most strength boosts out of all of them. He wields a sword bigger than himself and doesn't flinch when Behemoths are staring him down.
* Fran in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''. Obviously the most noticeable, being a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Viera]], and thus having bunny ears, tends to go on [[TheBerserker berserker rages]], and also literally as she towers over the rest of the party(even without the ears). In regular combat, Basch serves as the big guy, having the highest strength until Vaan catches up at extremely high levels, as well as the highest HP. Having the lowest vitality ironically makes him the best [[StoneWall tank]] when combined with his high HP.
* And in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', Snow Villiers is the tallest human player character yet, with an inch on everyone's favorite ScaryBlackMan Barret Wallace.
** Though Fang also counts. Like Snow, one of her two main paradigm skills is Sentinel. She's also a bit of a BloodKnight.
* Sabin from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' definitely qualifies. Also Umaro, the yeti.
* As does Steiner from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Freya can be this if she's not being TheLancer, and Amarant becomes this as well.
* 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.
* 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.
** Canderous straddles class 4 and 5. Yes, he is a ProudWarriorRaceGuy and ''lives'' for a good fight, [[BoisterousBruiser cheerfully shouting things like "DIE!" and "This is gonna be fun!" when mowing through legions of Sith assassins]]. However, he is anything but dumb, and KOTOR 2 shows that he's gone on to lead his people as Mandalore the Preserver.
* Also by Bioware is ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' with Black Whirlwind. He is an unrepentant Class 4 who just shrugs with a "Meh" whenever he's told his most recent story is the dumbest thing ever told. While an effective fighter, he is far more memorable for his many colorful and incredibly violent stories.
** You actually get to control him at one point to hold off an army.
* Each different [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience colour]] of ''{{Pikmin}}'' have different attributes in terms of strengths and weakness. The purple ones, being ten times as strong and heavy as those of any other colour, quite clearly slot into 'Big Guy' status.
* 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.
* The ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire'' series include one of these among the chosen heroes: Ox in [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireI I]], Rand in [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireII II]], Garr in [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII III]] and Cray in [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV IV]].
* Bentley the yeti from the third ''SpyroTheDragon'' game is a perfect Class V, charging into battle with his ice club swinging while yelling things like "[[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Why, you brazenly avaricious,]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny duplicitous, larcenous ursine!]]"
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sten]] serves as a Class 3, being a solid stoic who nonetheless has a definite soft side (enjoys art, kittens and has a SweetTooth). Oghren is a Class 4, a seemingly perpetually drunken BoisterousBruiser. Shale is a cross between a Class 4 and Class 1, [[SamusIsAGirl she]] lives only to crush her enemies' heads and watch the blood fountain. And to destroy all pigeons.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Fenris takes this role despite being a scrawny elf. A scrawny elf that has [[AppliedPhlebotinum Lyrium]] laced through his entire body and specializes in {{BFS}}es, that is. Whether he proves to be a Class 3 or a Class 1 mostly depends on whether [[PlayerCharacter Hawke]] pursues a friendship or a rivalry with him.
** Aveline also fills this role, being the heavily armoured, sword and board guardswoman who acts as the protector and tank of the group. She is likely a Class 3, because she talks tough, but is also the TeamMom.
** ''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]].
* ''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.
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has James Vega: he's easily the beefiest human character thus far, and is built more around survivability than other characters. There's a reason he shares two of his powers with Grunt. Whenever you find him in the ''Normandy'''s shuttle bay, he's usually shown to be doing pull-ups in his down time.
** Ashley is a female Class 4. She's a little hotheaded, protective of her team-mates and specializes in damage output.
* Sophie in ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'', a RareFemaleExample. Even though she is [[TokenMiniMoe small]], she has the personality and [[BadassAdorable fighting]] [[LightningBruiser capabilities]].
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has a few over the course of the game. [[TheStoic Kratos]] is this to start with; after he leaves the party, the role is taken over by CuteBruiser [[EmotionlessGirl Presea]], later joined by [[TheAtoner Regal]], who is a rather more classic example, as well as the Huge Guy of their HugeGuyTinyGirl dynamic.
* Judith counts as a female example, ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', being a {{Stripperific}} BloodKnight. Karol also counts, despite being a little kid, because he wields a huge (compared to him) two-handed weapon.
* ''[[BitTrip BIT.TRIP RUNNER]]'' gives us Radbot, [=CommanderVideo=]'s RobotBuddy.
* Sweetwater in ''VideoGame/BattlefieldBadCompany'' is a Class 5 GeniusBruiser/Smart Guy and a rare "not larger than the others" version. As the squad's SAW gunner, he ''does'' carry a larger weapon, and he's not afraid to use it. When a Russian soldier surprises him by running up to the roof just as the squad is hopping off their Blackhawk and onto it, Sweetwater, without breaking stride, hits the poor bastard clear off the roof with his SAW.
* Tychus Findlay fills this role in ''VideoGame/StarcraftII''. Even without his enormous PowerArmor, [[TwentyFourHourArmor which he's]] [[ClingyCostume always wearing]], he's a physically imposing guy, and comes complete with a [[BadassBaritone deep]] but easy on the ears voice. [[spoiler: Too bad he experiences a case of BigGuyFatalitySyndrome...]]
* Bud Bison (Gonta Ushijima) in ''MegaManStarForce''.
* ''VideoGame/FearEffect''. Jacob "Deke" [=DeCourt=] is big and powerful.
* Seth fills this role in ''LostOdyssey''. As well as being TheLancer to Kaim, she is also the toughest melee fighter other than him.
* Argo is a Class Two in ''MagnaCarta2''. He's very level-headed and kind.
* Augustus Cole is the team's big guy in Gears of War.
* Hannah/Hammer in Fable 2 is a Giantess type.
* Terence from ''VideoGame/AngryBirds'' is a much larger version of Red, complete with a lack of special abilities. He debuted within a set of Remix levels designed around his added durability.
** GeniusBruiser Bomb and GenkiGirl Poppy are runners up to this trope.
* Walter in the ''VideoGame/MentalSeries'' is larger than the other two characters, and as such can do things the others can't, such as pushing obstacles out of the way and lifting heavy objects.
* 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.
