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.

* ''Webcomic/CurseQuest'': Parodied with the Owl Hunter. He shows much bravado and pride of himself, wrestling an owl-bear when Walrus is in danger. He proves to be quite scrawny and incompetent however.

* [[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.

** Along simlar lines was Caleb Shang, a Chinese-Australian soldier and something of a soldierly jack-of-all-trades, worked as both advanced scout, sniper, machine gunner, stretcher bearer, anything the regiment needed him to be. He was the most highly decorated non-white soldier of the ANZAC forces, including Billy Sing.
