* ''{{Firefly}}'s'' Shepherd Derrial Book. He punches out cops, shoots down space ships, decapitates deathbots, and [[ImprobableAimingSkills shoots out men's kneecaps with rifles, one-handed, without even having to aim.]] If you called him a Badass Grandpa to his face, he would point out that [[CatchPhrase he never married]], so he is not a grandpa, but he couldn't deny the rest. He also orders an Alliance captain around, despite belonging to a group of outlaws. That man has a History.
