** youfeelingluckypunk27: He was also a tremendous inspiration to me in my clothes and my art. So I'm infinitely grateful to him for that.

** Well, I do admit everyone above is a nice person. Nonetheless... haven't you still mentioned Lord Cutler Beckett? TheChessmaster, GentlemanSnarker, the master of NonAnswer, the ace af Gambits... and most important, always [[StiffUpperLip keeping calm]] and never panicking. [[spoiler: Even on discovering that he was OutGambitted, which makes his death really quite sad.]]

** [[StarWarsCloneWars Captain Fordo]], from Star Wars: Clone Wars. A relatively minor character, especially compared to everyone else here, but he brings in ass-kicking and awesomeness in any scene he's in. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYI9FDbfk5U Just look at him!]]

* [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger John Matrix]] from ''Film/{{Commando}}''. After his daughter his kidnapped, he knows exactly what to do: Find the kidnappers, and kill them. And he doesn't let things like evil dictators, their military, former elite soldiers and angst get in way. In the end, [[spoiler:he succeeds]] and manages to kill, like, a whole [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] army on the way!

Despite his badassary, he refuses to take missions both before and after the movie because taking care of his daughter is more important.

* ''StrangerThanFiction'': Harold Crick. Will Ferrell is absolutely tremendous as him, and I wish he'd do more dramatic acting. Crick's journey from repressed workaholic who does nothing to being a lover of life, motivated by the knowledge that [[LikeYouWereDying his death could be just around the corner]] is brilliantly done, and then you have the tail end of the film, where he [[spoiler: becomes a ''de facto'' hero. It's one thing to be willing to die for your art. It's another to be willing to die for someone else's. Yes Karen, he is most definitely the kind of man you want to keep alive]].

* Evie Carnahan in TheMummyTrilogy. Okay, so she is the [[DontTouchItYouIdiot idiot who wakes the mummy up in the first place]] but there's still something to be said for a librarian turned ActionGirl. And not everyone can have a CrowningMomentOfAwesome or several relying on their knowledge of ancient Egyptian.

* [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors Seymour and Audrey.]] They make the cutest couple ever! Oh, and that crazy dentist was pretty funny, too. And who can forget the plant, Audrey II? Twooey stole the show, and being voice by Levi Stubbs helped.

* For a similar reason, [[SevenSamurai Kikuchiyo]]. Profuse and daring, he defies social class and was ultimately [[spoiler: TooCooltoLive]].

* Kyle Reese from ''The {{Terminator}}'': [[RowsdowerSavesUs I]] remember staying up years ago to watch the original for the first time when I was twelve. I had never seen an R-rated movie without [[MoralGuardians my parents]] in the room before, and the [[ClusterFBomb language]] was pretty shocking for someone who had never heard the word "fuck" before, but anyway. Then [[BadAss Reese]] comes on screen, all wild-eyed and intense, blasts the Terminator through a window, and says "[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome come with me if you want to live.]]" And my little 12-year-old brain went "This guy is FUCKIN' AWESOME!!! I have found my role model!" This from a 12-year-old GIRL, by the way, but [[Tropers/RowsdowerSavesUs I turned out all right]]. Hey, I think the guy's a better role model than most people on TV nowadays. Sure, people tell me I'm too [[ActionGirl wild-eyed, determined, and intense]], but there are worse things a person can be.

* Master Chief [[MenOfHonor Carl Brashear]]. You walk 12 steps in a suit that weighs over 300 lbs. and do it with only ONE good leg, and we'll add you to this list as well.

** Qui-Gon Jin. In his review of Film/{{Taken}}, RogerEbert said, "This movie proves that Liam Neeson can bring undeserved credibility to most roles just by playing them." (Ebert is apparently ten years behind the curve) In a movie of colossal stupidity, with horrible dialogue and non-existent direction, Neeson managed to make Jin wise, enthralling, and endearing.

*** ''Seconded''. I only first watched the ''Star Wars'' movies about...two months ago now? And I found myself drawn to Luke from the very start. Sweet, earnest, badass, can see the goodness in the darkest of places, [[strike:[[PrettyBoy really, really pretty]]]] and he does what is right simply because ''it's the right thing to do'', not for any reward. A worryingly high amount of people just dismiss him as "whiny" while completely ignoring the CharacterDevelopment and the [[TookALevelInBadass levels of badass he takes]], and it's starting to piss me off. Honestly, if I was in the situation he was at the start of ''A New Hope'' (stuck on a barren desert of a planet, all his friends are gone/have moved on to the Academy, uncle is preventing him from living the life he wants to lead by selfishly forcing him to stay on the farm [[note]] [[DarthWiki/DarthVader Albeit there is also an understandable reason]] [[TurnOutLikeHisFather which Luke isn't aware of yet]][[/note]] to freaking harvest water from the atmosphere for the rest of his life), I, too, would have "whined".
