The Big Guy:
Hawkgirl in . Ironic in that she's Justice League physically the smallest member of the league.
Split between Hawkgirl and Superman (plus the Martian Manhunter when the writers remember that he can do more than just phase).
Rhinox of is the very definition of Class 5.
Beast Wars Bulkhead of is a Class 2 and 5. He's got the clumsiness and the slightly Transformers Animated oafish voice, but is a Gentle Giant as well as quite intelligent, especially in battle (like how he countered Lugnut's Rocket Punch). He's even revealed to be an expert in space-bridge technology, firmly putting him in Genius Bruiser territory.
The team has their own Bulkhead. He's a veteran soldier with some "dirty work" in his history, but still has a gentle side.
Transformers Prime In the original Transformers, Ironhide fits this quite well for a group much larger than 5, although there's certainly a group that's considered more central than others. Also a good example of this trope from the original would be Brawn, who despite actually being SMALLER than most of the Autobots, otherwise fits this trope extremely well.
Autobot gestalts, such as Superion, typically fall into this role by default.
Bunnie from is a female example by virtue of her being a Sonic Sat AM Hollywood Cyborg and her girliness being outweighed by Antoine's qualifications as a male Chick.
Gordon from Thomas the Tank Engine. He is the largest and strongest engine on Sodor after all.
The biggest Big Guy of all is, believe or not, Godzilla, in . He's even nicknamed as such.
Godzilla: The Series Toph from is a Avatar: The Last Airbender Cute Bruiser variety. Her first episode had her taking on five skilled earthbenders and taking them all out sequentially. Her Disability Superpower certainly helps in that regard; her opponents underestimate her and she kicks up a cloud of dust that doesn't affect the way she "sees."
Matrix of .
ReBoot The show was an interesting example, because it starred a team of football players temporarily taking the place of the Knights of the Round Table, it was unique in having about five big guys (Lineman) who were essentially interchangeable from one story to the next.
King Arthur & the Knights of Justice has Grin—a massive musclebound giant who fights with his bare hands, but also The Mighty Ducks an ardent follower of Zen philosophy, who never uses more force than needed.
Numbuh Four in is the rare Codename: Kids Next Door Cute Bruiser and Dumb Muscle type, who has a random chance of being afflicted with The Worf Effect.
Gor-illa of fulfills Class 2 and 5. Due to events in the origin story, Gor-illa is a very intelligent, pacifist gorilla who goes into Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys One-Winged Angel mode when angered into a berserker rage.
Binky Barnes from is a Class 3.
Arthur Nathan Explosion of is a Class 3 if there ever was one- his growling voice, immense size, and general reputation of brutality hides the fact that, at heart, he's something of a marshmallow. Metalocalypse Who loves kitties. And his father. And Disneyland.
Buck Tuddrussel of punches first and asks questions later. Could even be categorized at some points as Time Squad Dumb Muscle.
Shane Gooseman, the Super Soldier from . He towers over the other three (and, at 19, is probably not finished growing, either!), and can easily take the most damage. Definitely a Class 3, as he comments in "One Million Emotions" that his kind can only get "angry and mad," but was seen in "Supertroopers" being the only one of his kind that questioned his role as a Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers Super Soldier.
Another example: Buzzwang. While he may not be programmed for combat, it is possible that he, being a robot, is stronger then the average human.
Galaxy Rangers The Bionic Six's Genius Bruiser, J.D., is not only strong, but may be taller then the rest of the family.
Sgt. Mace from , probably for his usage of heavy weapons.
COPS An example of a Big Guy who's also The Hero - .
The Tick The male half of the SilverHawks' Steel Twins, William "Steelwill" Hart, is a good example.
Panthro from and ThunderCats . Definitely a Class 5, as he has the most pronounced skill in technology of all of them. He's ThunderCats (2011) built like a tank...and built the damn tank! In the 2011 version, he also doubles as a highly intimidating type 1, a gruff Old Soldier who's Covered with Scars and unwilling to accept the young Lion-O as his leader and liege until the boy proves his worth in battle.
Ookla the Mokk is 's Thundarr the Barbarian Expy to Chewbacca.
Diana the Acrobat, Being the most athletic of the heroes in the cartoon.
Dungeons & Dragons Brock Samson from is a Class 3. He's got a hard exterior but he genuinely cares for Hank and Dean.
The Venture Bros. Kano from the "original" Team Venture.
Beezy on .
Jimmy Two-Shoes Buford from . He'd probably Phineas and Ferb like to be regarded as The Brute, but he's actually too nice for that.
In when muscle or a degree of inhuman dexterity is required, Bender can be counted as a Class 5 Futurama Genius Bruiser, although he's more cunning than clever. If the problem is just with too many Badass Normal mooks, then Leela will go berserker and kick their butts with her ninja skills.
Easy to miss since he's one of the few Big Guys who is incredibly slim ( understandably), but when you compare him to his surroundings, Jack Skellington of has got to be seven to eight feet tall.
The Nightmare Before Christmas Cyborg from fits #5 to a tee.
Teen Titans Beast Boy also fits this as a Class 4; while his jokes are groan-worthy, he's a general nice guy... who relies on brute force in the form of animal forms.
In Rico is their The Penguins of Madagascar Big Guy of a perfect Class 1 - he's even got the scar.
June from , not in terms of size, but she's definetly the toughest character.
KaBlam! Jake from .
Adventure Time Rainbow Dash from She's as strong or stronger than Applejack, very athletic, and far quicker to request a direct, physical solution than any other team member. She also happens to be pretty dense and, to top it off, she's the Spirit of the Element of Loyalty.
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Air Enforcer is this to the , being the biggest, strongest member with the most weapons.
Skysurfer Strike Force The Yeti Ti-Yet in . Easily the largest of the main characters and only the golem seems to actually be larger.
Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths and Legends Kon Kujira of .
Grojband Booster from is this for Team Lightyear, and often clubs large enemy robots... Buzz Lightyear of Star Command with other large enemy robots.
Kevin Levin of , Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien (which he appears in some episodes)
Ben 10: Omniverse Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot: The Big Guy!
