Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'': Memnock and Zenblock are the only two alien members of the Super Noobs team that consists of six members and both of them fit the role of the big guys due to their size. Zenblock is mainly a class 1 with some elements of class 2. Memnock is definitely a class 2.

* Hawkgirl in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. Ironic in that she's [[PintsizedPowerhouse 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 ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' is the very definition of Class 5.
* Bulkhead of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' is a Class 2 and 5. He's got the clumsiness and the slightly [[SimpletonVoice oafish voice]], but is a GentleGiant as well as quite intelligent, especially in battle (like how he countered [[ImplacableMan Lugnut's]] RocketPunch). He's even revealed to be an expert in space-bridge technology, firmly putting him in GeniusBruiser territory.
** The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' team has their own Bulkhead. He's a veteran soldier with some "dirty work" in his history, but still has a gentle side.
** 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 [[CombiningMecha gestalts]], such as Superion, typically fall into this role by default.
* Bunnie from ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' is a female example by virtue of her being a HollywoodCyborg and her girliness being outweighed by Antoine's qualifications as a male [[TheChick Chick]].
* Gordon from ''ThomasTheTankEngine.'' [[BadassBoast He is the largest and strongest engine on Sodor after all.]]
* The biggest Big Guy of all is, believe or not, Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, in ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries''. He's even nicknamed as such.

* Matrix of ''ReBoot''.
* The show ''WesternAnimation/KingArthurAndTheKnightsOfJustice'' 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.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks'' has Grin--a massive musclebound giant who fights with his bare hands, but also [[GentleGiant an ardent follower of Zen philosophy]], who never uses more force than needed.
