* ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: they're humanoid mice, they come from Mars, and they're bikes. For the Badass part... Back on Mars they routinely fought tanks one-on-one and ''won''.

* Hell Tanner, a convicted killer and the last living Hell's Angel, the hero of Roger Zelazny's 1967 dystopia / hellride novel ''Literature/DamnationAlley'' is a Badass Biker of the first degree. The only reason he undertakes to run the titular route is that the Governor has promised him a full pardon if he tried.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'': Paul Phoenix. Bikes around a lot, and self-proclaimed "toughest guy in the universe". Though judging by his record of fighting (beaten several Mishimas in canon!), he's... really {{Badass}}.

* Parodied in an episode of ''Anime/LuckyStar'', in which Creator/YukoGotoappears as a badass, hypermasculine {{Yakuza}} biker chick. Essentially a sendup of the funny fact that contrary to her many moe-character roles, Ms. Gotou is actually a motorcycle enthusiast in real life.

Only one type of BadAss character can make it around these parts. He's got the [[BadassLongcoat longcoat]], the [[CoolShades shades]], and the (optional) [[SmokingIsCool smoking addiction]]. But what really [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman sells it]] is the CoolBike.

Possibly popularized by the MarlonBrando movie ''Film/TheWildOne'' and the JamesDean movie ''Film/RebelWithoutACause'', the Badass Biker is the absolute epitome of the viciously cool vagrant tough guy. Whether they are traveling through the desert, city streets, a [[MotorcycleOnTheCoastRoad coastal road]], or [[RuleOfCool up a wall]], this character and bike combo exudes an aura of awesome that eclipses just about any other BadAss + vehicle combination.

* Kenji in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' tried to be one, after his [[JapaneseSiblingTerminology aniki]]--who definitely was, before becoming a smug minor {{Yakuza}} boss (though still {{Badass}}, of course).
