* Samuel Campbell from ''{{Series/Supernatural}}'' is quite the {{BadAss}} and is Sam and Dean's grandfather. The complications of time travel (he died at age 42 in 1973, and was brought back to life in the present at the same age) mean that he is too young to be their grandfather normally, but at least he's an older man to them and old enough to be their father.

With letter a letter opener he found during an out-of-body experience while said survivor was strangling him.

* ''{{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.

* Dr Quentin of the ''SpyGame'' television series, played by Patrick [=MacNee=] as a semi-regular. His first appearance has him playing a sedate round of golf with an old espionage buddy (played by ''Series/MissionImpossible'''s Peter Lupus), when they're suddenly confronted by a much larger squad of young toughs. A fight ensues. Guess which side wins?

* Rupert Giles from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' initially a bookish man in his mid 40's. By the series end he is in his 50's and while he isn't a parent or a grandparent he has gone toe to toe with innumerable vampires, fought demons (both the regular hybrids, an insane cyborg and a full fledged one) fought a god, stopped a witch from destroying the world (admittedly he lost that fight but she was coked up on more magic than was safe) and helped stop the end of the world. About a dozen times.

* ''Series/{{Vikings}}'' is about the codifiers of the ProudWarriorRaceGuy trope, so it has several examples. Most prominent is Tostig, an OldSoldier [[TheBerserker Berserker]] DeathSeeker with a ''seriously'' awesome [[BadassBeard beard]] who manages to handily slaughter several Anglo-Saxons [[strike:half]] a ''third'' of his age at the same time.
