* Tucker, in ''Series/{{Danger 5}}''. With the added bonus that he's the cool-headed leader of the eponymous MultinationalTeam.
** However, he's significantly nerdier than most examples.

* Tucker, Subverted in the Australian parody ''Series/{{Danger 5}}''. With Tucker, the added bonus that he's only Australian member of the cool-headed MultinationalTeam, is a total nancy boy and only the leader of the eponymous MultinationalTeam.
** However, he's significantly nerdier than most examples.
Danger 5 because no-one else can be bothered to challenge him.

* [[http://howmanydayssincemontaguestreetbridgehasbeenhit.com/ Montague Street Bridge]] in Melbourne. Yes, an ''inanimate structure'' has wrecked enough vehicles to qualify as a MemeticBadass. The bridge has an infamously low clearance, and drivers of trucks and the like often misjudge if they can pass under it safely.

Since UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} has earned a reputation as [[EverythingTryingToKillYou one of the most dangerous countries]] on Earth, due to its harsh environment and [[AustralianWildlife myriad of highly dangerous creatures]], many authors have reasoned that anyone who can survive there must be quite a bit tougher than your ordinary human. Australians (specifically, Anglo-Australian males) in fiction are often portrayed as [[TestosteronePoisoning über-masculine rough-and-tumble supermen]], champion outdoorsmen who tear up the outback in their Jeeps and have never met a crocodile they couldn't wrestle. Expect [[KnifeNut a fondness for knives]]. Some also like to mention the fact that Australia was founded as a penal colony [[PrisonsAreGymnasiums to emphasize how tough they are]], as if this is ever taken as a compliment. Obviously not 100% realistic, but there's ''[[UsefulNotes/AussiesWithArtillery some]]'' truth here. It is notable, however, that the majority of depictions of this trope date from before the first Iraq war.

* In ''Film/PacificRim'', the Australian [[AMechByAnyOtherName Jaeger]], ''Striker Eureka'', is the most advanced and most powerful Jaeger, being a LightningBruiser armed with [[ConvectionSchmonvection thermal]] [[BladeBelowTheShoulder Sting-Blades]], brass knuckles, and [[MacrossMissileMassacre chest missiles]]. And when their Jaeger is disabled, [[spoiler: the pilots climb outside and take potshots at a {{Kaiju}} with flare guns to keep it distracted and away from civilians]]. Basically, it's surprising they don't challenge {{Kaiju}} to games of knifey spooney.
