Boisterous Bruiser / Live-Action TV
"Wild Bill" Guarnere from .
Band of Brothers This doubles as a Real Life example, as Bill Guarnere is pushing 90 with no sign of slowing down.
Blackadder Sam Axe, played by the immortal Bruce Campbell, in . Semi-subverted in that Sam is actually just as smart as Michael and Fi, and his supposed dumbness is Burn Notice Obfuscating Stupidity.
Speaking of Adam Baldwin, Casey from can occasionally fit in here.
Chuck In , The Doctor has run into a few of these fellows over the years. Notably Doctor Who Bandito Arturo Villa in "The War Games" and King Ycranos (inevitably, he's played by BRIAN BLESSED) in "Mindwarp".
Don't forget Time Lord Omega from "The Three Doctors."
And he's been one himself, in his Sixth incarnation.
Full time companion Donna Noble is one of the rare female examples. " Oi, sunshine!"
Firefly Jayne Cobb seems to epitomize this trope when he's in a good mood.
Monty the smuggler also fits. "I shaved MY BEARD off for you, you devil woman!!!"
Sir Warrick Harrow manages to be a smart, sophisticated Boisterous Bruiser. With an Indoor Voice. He makes up for it with double the big-goofy-mentor-figure value.
Game of Thrones King Robert Baratheon, although age has only left the party animal and took the great warrior away.
Tormund Giantsbane is an absolute demon in combat, and he knows it.
The Greatjon is a Large Ham and one of Robb's best fighters after all.
The Smalljon gives off this vibe as this huge warrior with Brutal Honesty.
Bronn loves singing, fighting, and fucking. He's very jolly, and very deadly.
Corporal Josh Ray Person of Generation Kill. Oddly for this trope, he's on the skinny side and is the resident Smart Guy.
Graduados Silas in ; played by Richard Ridings.
Highlander: The Series Momotaros in .
Kamen Rider Den-O Kintaros is an even better example. Burly, strong, speaks in a Kansai accent, and is easily the most friendly and personable of the four.
Gentarou, the eponymous .
Kamen Rider Fourze Mr. (Isaiah) Edwards from is this trope personified. The books made him that way too, using a variant of the folk song Little House on the Prairie Ol' Dan Tucker as his theme.
Prince Arthur from , as he often goes hunting or engages in quests with gusto, especially in the beginning of the series.
Merlin To an extent, all the Knights of Camelot are like this, apparently. In one scene, Arthur gives Merlin a friendly punch in the arm "to cheer him up", and when Merlin asks why on earth he thought that'd work Arthur replies, baffled, that it always works on the knights. ("Well, they're a bit thick, aren't they?")
Gwaine deserves special mention. He's extroverted, charming, loves to have a good time, and is an undisputed badass.
Francis Lawrence "Larry" Kubiac III from .
Parker Lewis Can't Lose : Bud Hammond. He has a pretty mean right cross, as the Vice President finds out. He's also responsible for pretty much all the Political Animals scenery chewing in the show.
Richard the Lionheart was portrayed this way in .
Robin of Sherwood The titular character in , so much so he Sledge Hammer! talks to his gun, and in his first appearance took care of a sniper by blowing up the building under him.
B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) of .
The A-Team In , General Wheeler has come out of retirement to lead the cavalry in Cuba, and is enjoying the hell out of it.
The Rough Riders
Wheeler: "We got them damn Yankees on the run!"
Aide: "Spaniards, sir, and they're retreating to prepared positions."
Wheeler: "Don't spoil it, son!"
Dean Winchester of
