** Sergeant Avery J. Johnson is a [[SuperSoldier SPARTAN-I]] who served in classified Spec-Ops before rejoining the regular Marine Corps, and fought at both the first and last battles of the 28-year-long Human-Covenant war. He kills enough Flood to astonish the [[OneManArmy Master Chief]] himself, and successfully hijacks a [[SpiderTank Scarab]]. He even badmouths the Prophet of Truth to his face while being held captive and beaten by a [[KillerSpaceMonkey Brute]]. He's probably at least in his 70s when you fight alongside him in the games; even taking into account cryo-sleep, he's still at least in his 60s.

** While not a ground pounder, Captain Keyes certainly qualifies as well.

** While not a ground pounder, Captain Keyes certainly qualifies as well.well, being perhaps the UNSC's best single-ship commander, and is still quite capable of undertaking ground-ops if he has to.

** Radigan Conagher, mechanical genius, possessor of HotBloodedSideburns, became even more BadAss after he came in contact with [[{{Unobtanium}} Australium]]. [[http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/handyman/ Exhibit one]], Radigan with a robot hand and chest hair in the shape of Texas. Also actually a grandfather (to Dell Conagher, the BLU engineer).
** Heavy is heavily implied to have been a young boy in the early Stalin era, making him in his late 40s at the very least.
** Engineer's father is implied to have participated in ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'', which takes place in 1930 in this timeline, and a picture of the two suggests that Dell was about 10 at the time, putting his birth year somewhere in the 1920s.

* ''Everyone'' in ''[[VideoGame/StarSiege Earthsiege]]''. According to the backstory of the first game, the RobotWar that erupts missed a tiny museum loaded with antique [[HumongousMecha HERCULAN robots]] and equally old staff consisting of former techs and pilots with an average age of 67. The most iconic is your MissionControl, Ambrose Gierling, a cantankerous old former HERC pilot and blatant UsefulNotes/GeorgeSPatton {{Expy}} played by John Rice, who easily looks the part of a 70-year-old war veteran.

* ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'': Both Reinhardt and Torbjörn are pretty old, at 61 and 57 respectively but they're still kicking ass and taking names. Soldier: 76's age isn't known but he's obviously up there in the years too.

Ana counts too as a badass ''grandma'' when it is announced that she will be playable, as she's 60 years old, the second oldest character in the game (only Reinhardt is older than her).

* Kreia from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'', who serves as a rather morally ambiguous [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] to your character [[spoiler:after having already been a Jedi Master ''and'' a Sith Lord.]] If that's not enough, her ultimate purpose is equally badass: [[spoiler:she wants nothing less than the death of the ''Force itself'', so people will stop being so weak and dependant on it]]. You're the key to making it happen, and she will remove ''any'' obstacle or inconvenience to her plan.

* ''BaldursGate'' has Keldorn Firecam. Quoting the {{Badass}} page: at least fifty-something, but still covered in armour and swinging a two-handed sword whilst singing the praises of his rocking-out god. Plus he's the only NPC in the game capable of wielding the game's most powerful sword, and is a rare example of how to be a righteous paladin without [[LawfulStupidChaoticStupid having a stick up his ass]]. His epilogue says he eventually checks out at [[RetiredBadass age sixty]], pulling a fatal YouShallNotPass on an army of Giants only to get [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence picked to be the right hand man to the God of Righteousness]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'': Griffin is referred to as an old man by both himself and other hunters, but he's had more practice hunting and killing xenofauna than anyone else on the team and he's still going. Lennox, while similarly aged, doesn't have his years of experience. What she does have is four tons of armor and weapons in MiniMecha form and the desire to beat the living hell out of the monsters that destroyed her colony.

* [[FluffyTheTerrible Sprout]] from ''PhantomBrave''. Despite his name, he single-handedly kills and absorbs the essence of a monster responsible for the deaths of three of the main characters in the prologue, [[spoiler: comes into at least two [[HopelessBossFight Hopeless Boss Fights]] and wins the battle]], is the largest humanoid character in the game (he's about the same size as a ''dragon''), and [[spoiler: attacks Sulphur, the BigBad, and weakens it to about 1/20th of its full power before, unfortunately, [[DemonicPossession having his body taken over by it. He commits suicide to weaken Sulphur further.]]]].
* Kainen from ''Tomba 2'' definitely counts during the cutscene between dongolin woods and Circus Town.

** It gets better in ''RedDeadRedemptionUndeadNightmare''. There are three towns in the game that will NEVER come under zombie attack. Two of them are fortresses with tall walls and only ladders to access it. The third? A brothel in Mexico with no tall walls. Landon Ricketts is single-handedly keeping the zombies down in Casa Magruda with nothing but his trusty-six shooter. He also has the idea of combining the zombie bait and dynamite into a weapon that draws the zombies in before blasting them into red mist.
