Strong Belwas, a boisterous pit fighter who thoroughly enjoys boasting of Strong Belwas's prowess at maximum volume while gorging himself on liver and onions. He's doubly awesome for being a eunuch - even taking his bollocks from him can't dampen his spirits!
Thoros of Myr, in the days when he was friends with Robert, said that he became a red priest because it was harder to spot wine spills on red clothes. He was also known for setting his sword on fire and giving as good as he got in melees. This is a priest we're talking about.
Aeron Greyjoy used to be one, an Ironborn (i.e. pseudo-Viking) raider who loved to drink and party and liked to boast that man could piss longer or farther than him. At the time of the series, he has changed into a dour, humorless religious fanatic. It is suggested that he was sexually abused by his brother Euron, and both his previous recklessness and current fanaticism both stem from his attempts to cope with this trauma.
The eponymous Villain Protagonist of Barry Lyndon is sort of a deconstruction of the trope, as the novel is a pastiche of 18th century novels, which means that Barry could be thought of as "what Tom Jones would be like if he was evil". Barry pursued social advancement through underhanded means (including becoming a Sociopathic Soldier, a cardsharper, and police spy) but describes himself at his prime as being the toast of society and generous and open-hearted, with the flaw of being unable to resist the charm of a beautiful woman. Even assuming this is true, Barry is also a wife-beater and serial adulterer who squandered his wife's fortune and at the time he narrates, is in debtor's prison and in seriously bad health as a result of his earlier hedonism.
Tazendra from the Dragaera (Khaavren) series. As a Porthos expy, she's a consumate warrior who wears her heart on her sleeve and is never happier than when in battle beside her comrades.
Gurney Halleck in Dune, well, sorta... kinda... somewhat.
Rider aka Alexander the Great from Fate/Zero novel. Aside from taking books from the local library and walking slowly away ("I am not a thief, I refuse to run"), shoving his Master around all the time, wanting to purchase a couple of stealth bombers for his world conquest, and considering Bill Clinton (the incumbent U.S. president during Fourth Grail War) to be a Worthy Opponent. He also attempts to rally most of the heroes to his banner. Even more blatant in the animaqted version of the novel, where his bruiser looks and demeanor are aken Up to Eleven.
In the Flashman series, Flashman's father Buckley is kind of a darker take on this. As detailed the spin-off novel Black Ajax and in the main series, Buckley was born into new money and made his name as a Blood Knight war hero (he was nicknamed "Mad Buck") before hitting it off with the movers and shakers in high society and like his son, had a continuing taste for booze and wenches. Along the way, he lost much of his fortune through bad investments, and from Flashman's narration seems to have become a kind of sour, bad tempered man. Fairly early in the Flashman books, his alcoholism got so bad that he ended up with Delirium tremens and was placed in an asylum and is forgotten by his son. While there, Buckley enjoys smuggled liquor and the occasional prostitute on the sly, but is mostly a drunken wreck whose only real consolation is that his son has become successful and (he thinks) a genuine hero. Flashman also runs into plenty of examples in his army career, but usually hates them because he thinks that their gung-ho attitude endangerous him.
Forgotten Realms (Starlight and Shadows) trilogy by Elaine Cunningham gives us "genial ship's captain with a taste for recreational mayhem", pirate Hrolf 'the Unruly',.
Rocky, talking gorilla, best friend of J!m and rock and roller in Go, Mutants!.
Firebead in George MacDonald Fraser's The Pyrates is a (semi-)villainous example. He hates honest men, honest work and civilization; he loves whoring, drinking and fighting. And setting his beard on fire.
Viridovix from The Videssos Cycle: a Celtic chieftain before his entrance to Videssos, he's a charming man, a strong warrior, enjoys battle, and carries one of the two primary Macguffins of the series, and in many respects is a rival to the protagonist.
King Arthur's cousin Culhwch in The Warlord Chronicles is a textbook example of this trope. Bernard Cornwell seems to think Boisterous Bruisers make good sidekicks. He's not wrong. Also, Owain from the first book is a much less moral and more mercenary example.
Emmett Cullen from Twilight could count — he's definitely The Big Guy of the family, literally and figuratively, and he's an all around jovial and jolly guy to be around.
Subverted by Big Tom from the Warlock of Gramarye series by Christopher Stasheff: while he appears to embody this trope, it turns out that he is in fact highly educated and possesses a doctorate in theology.
Alex Kilgour, the title character's wisecracking heavy-worlder right-hand man from Sten. It's even pointed out in the books that he was known on their Mantis (Special Forces) team as a 'brightener.'
Bahorel, one of the revolutionary group Les Amis de l'ABC, from Les Misérables.
