* ''[[VideoGame/DiRT Colin [=McRae=] [=DiRT=]]]'' (2007)

!!Tropes associated with Colin [=McRae=]:

* BadassDriver: To the point that he only lost roughly half a second to Creator/TravisPastrana when they faced off during the 2006 X Games, much to the astonishment of both Pastrana and the mainstream American audience who have never previously heard of [=McRae=] before.
* BraveScot: And a proud one at that, having waved the Scottish flag when he won the championship trophy with Derek Ringer in 1995.
* {{Determinator}}: [=McRae=] would not hesitate to "go flat out" when racing, even if his superiors have explicitly told him to defer to Carlos Sainz at one time, to which Colin begrudgingly complied. This style of driving also meant that his superiors had to invest deeply, and by that we mean lots and lots of (expendable) cars.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Colin's aggressive, no questions asked style of rallying has earned him the nickname "Colin [=McCrash=]", and also the ire of his sponsors, who had to spend so much resources to compensate for [=McRae=]'s frequent crashing. While some criticise Colin's driving style as one of the reasons why he never won another championship, it was through this flat-out way that he gained a significant fan base.
