** Seiji is more a [[MadLove psychotic]] contender for this trope, although he got a bit better after [[spoiler:finally getting together with Mika]]. To recount: [[spoiler: He tried to murder Mika in cold blood,]] showed no guilt or remorse when he thought [[spoiler:he ''had'' killed her, was willing to use the body of the girl he murdered to mount Celty's head on so he could have a physical relationship with her (which has terribly {{squick}}y implications)]], and used his twisted infatuation as an excuse to treat everyone who isn't "Celty" dismissively or outright attempt to kill them (failing only because everyone else is a BadAss while he... isn't). In other words, his personality, idea of love, and treatment of other people is very similar to his sister's. Apparently [[JerkAss jerkassery]] runs in the family.

** Episode 11. You know Mikado, right? The sweet, NaiveNewcomer, curious about the world of gangs--the mysterious "Dollars" in particular? [[spoiler: Turns out he's actually the ''leader'' of said group, and is quite the [[TranquilFury vocal]] {{Badass}}.]] Or, alternatively, episode ten, where his WhamLine would lead many a fan suspicious:

* {{Badass}}: Almost every main character in the series, in some way or another.
** BadassArmy: The Yellow Scarves when competently led. The Dollars are mostly composed of {{Guile Hero}}es, but they have enough muscle and achieve enough awesome to qualify.
** BadassCrew: Kadota's sub-division of the Dollars, composed of [[BadassNormal himself]], [[BadassDriver Togusa]], and [[BattleCouple Walker and Erika.]]
** BadassPacifist: Simon. Also, many members of the Dollars prefer GuileHero tactics (i.e. nonviolent methods), as best displayed in Episode 22 of the anime.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Many characters have this as a running theme.
** FourStarBadass: They aren't military officers, but [[spoiler: Masaomi]] is the metaphorical equivalent of this for the Yellow Scarves and [[spoiler: Mikado]] is this for the Dollars, though only a few know about the latter.
** OneManArmy: Celty and [[spoiler: Anri]] are good contenders for this, but Shizuo is the most badass one of them all, lampshaded by Celty herself. Heck, Shizuo is practically more of a fighting game character than an anime one.
** WorldOfBadass

* GangOfHats: We've got the Yellow Scarves and the Blue Squares, who are traditional gang members who simply (wait for it) identify by what they're wearing. Then we've got Dollars, the newest and biggest kids on the block--a gang formed over the Internet. Some members know each other in real life, but mostly only know each other by their online selves, and are summoned by [=PDA=]; many are extremely hardcore {{Otaku}} (but not all). To everyone else; they're an Anonymous group that uses no visible colors to identify themselves, congregate out of nowhere, and scatter into nowhere. Their "Hat" is that they have no Hat. Yes, they're a Weaponized [[ImageBoards 4chan.]] Be very afraid.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Shiki surprisingly mello for a gangster, when Shizuo is framed for murder of several Yakuza (by Izaya, of course), Shiki calmly and rationally deduces the fact that Shizuo was framed and lets him go.

** The title "Durarara" itself. Ryohgo Narita ran out of time and gave it a random, meaningless name, which his editor loved.
