Added DiffLines:

* Auda Abu Tayi in ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'', a ProudWarriorRaceGuy-meets-LoveableRogue Bedouin chief, played by iconic LargeHam Creator/AnthonyQuinn at his most exuberant. The historical Auda also qualified, according to ''Seven Pillars of Wisdom.''
-->"He had married twenty-eight times, had been wounded thirteen times, and in the battles he provoked had seen all his tribesmen hurt, and most of his relation slain. He himself had killed seventy-five men, all Arabs, by his own hand in battle... He saw life as a saga, and all events in it were significant, and all personages in contact with him heroic. His mind was stored with tales of old raids, and epic poems of fights. He had no control over his lips, and was therefore terrible to his own interest, and hurt his friends continually. He spoke of himself in the third person and was so sure of his fame that he loved to shout out stories against himself. At times he seemed taken by a demon of mischief: and yet with all this he was really modest, as simple as a child, direct, honest, kind-hearted, and warmly loved even by those to whom he was most embarrassing - his friends.


* Thor again in ''The Return of TheIncredibleHulk''. He boasts of learning to be subtle after he sees off someone who is looking for Dr. Banner using subterfuge. This is what he considers subterfuge:

Added DiffLines:

* M'Baku in ''Film/BlackPanther2018'', a very large man with a very large presence, is both a fierce warrior and a jovial {{Troll}} who laughs at his own jokes.

Added DiffLines:

* Blackbeard is portrayed this way in ''Film/AnneOfTheIndies'': carousing, consuming huge quantities of food and booze, and firing his pistols into the ceiling when he wants silence.

Added DiffLines:

* Darius Kincaid in ''Film/TheHitmansBodyguard.'' Played by Creator/SamuelLJackson in full LargeHam mode, Kincaid's exuberant ''joie de vivre'' shines through whether he's killing a bunch of bad guys, trolling his bodyguard, or making friends with a busload of singing nuns.


* Raven in ''CecilBDemented'' is a combination of BoisterousBruiser, BadassAdorable, PerkyGoth, and CloudCuckoolander, among others.

* ''Film/{{Underground}}'' has the main characters, Serbian WW2 gunrunners Marko and Blacky. They love a good scrap and are always partying as hard as possible. In one scene, Marko stumbles across a brawl started by Blacky, hands his personal brass band a tip to play some fast-tempo music, and throws himself into the fray while dancing to the beat.

Added DiffLines:

** Smashley despite having only a handful of lines, is played with utter LargeHam aplomb by director Barrymore and steals every scene she's in.


* Mace Windu, the number two Jedi on the Council (who first appeared in ''Film/ANewHope'') qualified. He ''loved'' to fight, and given the tempting nature of the Dark Side, this was a dangerous trait for a Jedi to have; as a result, he studied favored Form VII (also known as Juyo or Vaapad) a very difficult and hard to use school of swordplay, that allowed near-unmatched mental discipline and lightsaber control. His concentration was such that he was even able to use certain Dark Side techniques, like [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Force Crush]], without succumbing to the temptation. (''However'', he was clearly the exception, not the rule.)

* Dablone, the loud, laughing leader of the underground gang in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' Show #705, ''Film/{{Escape 2000}}''. Mike and the Bots nickname him "[[TheToblerone Toblerone]]", after the [[SugarWiki/TheToblerone Swiss candy bar]].

to:

* ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'': Creator/LiamNeeson's character, the Baron of Ibelin, who's a knight. He fights fiercely, even if he gets wounded (as he remarks himself: "I once fought two days with an arrow through my testicle!"). He also learns his son Balian to fight as well, and knights him.

* Creator/RayWinstone as Bors in the otherwise lame ''Film/KingArthur'' (2004) film. Cheerful, savage, so many children he just gives them numbers... Creator/RayStevenson was also awesome as [[GentleGiant Dagonet]]. All the knights were like this to some extent, apart from Tristan and Arthur himself. The scenes with them cracking jokes at each other are easily the best parts of the movie.

** Boss Nass, the Gungan head honcho from ''StarWars Episode I''. His booming voice and seizure-like expressions of displeasure make him more expressive than most of the human cast. The character was written as a strict, xenophobic no-nonsense ruler with little patience, who eventually had a change of heart when he realizes he's misjudged the race he despises, and becomes friendly and joyful. Blessed's performance changed the characterization.
