Comic Books




  • In Cody Goodfellow's short horror story Life Coach, her psychotic, vicious dog's name is "Clovis".
  • Billy-Ray Sanguine from Skulduggery Pleasant, a sociopathic hitman who carries a special straight razor with which to cut his victims' throats.

Live-Action TV

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer 's season 6 Big Bad is named Warren Mears, which kind of foreshadows his future mental instability. (Of course, ironically, the actor's a Jew from New York, although his chick's from Alabama, but she's definitely not a redneck. And she's the one he shot.)
  • On The Shield, Shane Vendrell is not a nice person. Further, he uses the alias "Cletus van Damme".

Video Games

  • Luther-Dwayne Grady from SSX Tricky. He's a gigantic and rude guy whose play style revolves around using his massive size to his advantage.
