%% * [[JohnnyMcCoolname Mark Sandman]] from Music/Morphine was this trope in spades, having a hypnotic, seductive voice that commanded respect and attention.
%% * Ben Burnley from Music/BreakingBenjamin distinguishes himself from similar singers such as Chino Moreno from Music/{{Deftones}} or Maynard James Keenan from Music/{{Tool}} by having a distinctive, deep and soulful voice.
%% * The Swedish singer Roger Pontare is notable for his very deep voice both when talking and singing.
%% * Trace Adkins is a CountryMusic singer known as much for his bass-baritone voice as for his very tall, muscular stature and often masculine songs (e.g. "Hot Mama", "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", etc.). Bonus points for having had a pinky finger reattached after an accident, and having survived getting run over by an off-road vehicle.
%% * Music/{{Metallica}}'s James Hetfield. Accidentally stepped into a pyrotechnic, and lived.
%% * Music/{{Ringo Starr}} is this. He is a badass, despite allegedly not even being the best drummer in [[Music/TheBeatles the Beatles]], and listening to him sing will tell you that he is a baritone.

* Gaius from the [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Xillia]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2 games]]. Voiced by Creator/TravisWillingham in English and Creator/RyotaroOkiayu in Japanese. Both have very deep voices, Travis perhaps a bit deeper than Ryotaro, and Gaius is the ultimate {{Badass}} character in Xillia. He's the BigBad of the first game, became king of Auj Oule ''because'' [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority he can kick your ass into next week]] and even won the tournament without a Lilium Orb ''at age twelve''. His badass tendencies didn't stop in the second game, despite taking [[TookALevelInKindness a level in kindness]].

%% * Meta Knight in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' speaks in a deep, gravelly voice. He's also the only character in the game who administrators are considering ''[[GameBreaker banning from tournament play]]'' because he's [[{{Badass}} "too powerful".]]

* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' has Meta Knight, who has very deep VoiceGrunting in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'', and in his only fully voiced appearances, namely in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', also has a very low voice. He also more than qualifies for the {{Badass}} part of this trope, given his title as [[WorldsStrongestMan The Strongest Warrior]] [[LargeHamTitle In The Galaxy]] and MasterSwordsman status.

* Despite common depictions, this trope is subverted in the two most legitimately {{badass}} American presidents: UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln is said to have had a shrill, nasal voice and UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt had a mid-range voice - his voice was the first president's to ever be recorded and a sample can be found [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roosevelt_-_Address_to_the_Boys_Progressive_League.ogg here.]]

* Creator/ChristopherLee. Played many of the [[Film/HammerHorror most]] [[Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun iconic]] [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings villains]] in film history, aided much due to his magnificent baritone voice. He's also a trained operatic singer, a metalhead, speaks at least [[{{Omniglot}} five languages fluently]], is a MasterSwordsman, and was a member of the Special Operations Executive during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII (whose exploits inspired the character of Literature/JamesBond created by his step-cousin and war buddy Creator/IanFleming).

** Fallout 2 gave us Frank Horrigan, an enormous, mutated high ranking member of the Enclave, with a voice as deep as the ocean. He also fits the Badass criteria [[ThatOneBoss VERY, VERY well.]]]] There was also Marcus, a mutant who'd been a member of the Master's army, then founded his own town after the Master's death, where he still serves as sheriff. Give him a hand, and he can join you in running around melting Enclave goons with a plasma rifle. Being voiced by Creator/MichaelDorn certainly helps in the baritone department.
