What does firebrash means? There is no definition of it on google! (I mean, I cannot find it when I google a definitino for it)
Can one be both a Boisterous Bruiser and a Gentle Giant ?
Easily. An example of such a character would, when attacked, quickly disarm his attacker, knock him back over a table, then place a foot on his neck and suggest that it would be better to settle their differences over a drinking contest. As they both nurse hangovers the next morning they become fast friends.
How about Jeremy Clarkson in Top Gear? He's 6'5", 50 going on 15, enjoys goofing around, with a trademark, rather hammy way... of PRESENTING. Would this fall under Live Action TV?
There are a dozen female examples on this page and they're all prefaced with "A rare female example..."
A "rare" example would be one. Or maybe two. A dozen means its not that rare.
You're right. Edited for tone.
so, does anyone else think Fawkes from Fallout 3 fits this? How about Marcus from Fallout 2 (certainly a Bruiser with sage advice) or Veronica from Fallout New Vegas (try putting her in Power Armor)
So, is a Boisterous Bruiser basically a more cheerful and bombastic Blood Knight (and in return, is a Blood Knight a calmer and more serious Boisterous Bruiser)?
Maybe we should take this question (and others) to Trope Talk, because despite reading the description, I don't know the answer to yours, nor how Boisterous Bruiser counts as a Sub-Trope of In Harm's Way.
Eh? The tropes really don't overlap. The Boisterous Bruiser is just a guy who's good at fighting and happens to have fun when he does it. A Blood Knight is always fighting. Not for any particularly reason, it's just what he wants to do.
I could fix up the description if it's really necessary but I've never heard of anyone confusing these two before.
You can be a Boisterous Bruiser and a Technical Pacifist at the same time. In fact in some versions of this trope, a bar with a Boisterous Bruiser in it is less likely to have anything turn violent since people realise that if they start a fight, he will finish it. Then he will go back to partying which is the important bit.

How well does it match the trope?
