Boisterous Bruiser: Theater
- William Shakespeare's Sir John Falstaff.
- Rooster Johnny Byron of Jerusalem: a larger-than-life raconteur who lives alone in the forest, shelters kids who want to get away from their parents and have a little fun, and regales them with stories about meeting honest-to-goodness giants. Arguably deconstructed, as the reckless, daredevil attitude that makes him so entertaining is shown to have a habit of pissing off everybody, even those closest to him.
- The Pirate King from The Pirates of Penzance.
