* [[FirstPersonShooter First-Person Shooters]] that have drivable vehicles almost always require this.



* First-person shooters like Franchise/{{Halo}} require badass driving if you want to survive long in a Warthog or Mongoose in multiplayer mode. Preferably with someone able to shoot at your opponents, but [[CarFu for those moments they can't]]...

* Mako Reizei from ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' is probably the PatronSaint of Anime {{badass}} ''[[TankGoodness tank]]'' [[BadassDriver drivers]]. [[ActionGirl She is able to drive anything, anywhere, at ridiculous levels of expertise]] [[InstantExpert just by reading the owners manual]]. She tops everything by ''drifting'' a 30-ton ''UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo tank'' in ways that would make [[InitialD Bunta Fujiwara]], above, gape with envy

* Keiichi Tsuchiya. He isn't called ''[[RedBaron The Drift King]]'' for nothing. He's so BadAss that he himself appeared (though not completely) in a special episode in the anime version of ''InitialD'' as the one talking to Bunta Fujiwara on the cellphone for advice. Not only that, but he was the inspiration for the character Takumi, Bunta's son. [[RetiredBadass Though his glory years are now far behind him]], he's still a CoolOldGuy.

* Shortly before its demise, ''DisneyAdventures'' magazine had a comic strip called ''Driver 10'' about an entire organization of people with the innate ability to expertly control any vehicle at any speed who engaged in superspy adventures. Most of the Drivers had additional powers like SuperStrength or [[ShockAndAwe generating electricity to overload machines]], but the hero, the titular Driver 10, had only his driving skills.

* In the Music/XJapan 2010 ''Rusty Nail'' PV (the non-anime one), this is subverted - Toshi ''looks'' like he's going to take on the role of BadassDriver as he got into the [[AuthorAppeal Maserati.]] Except it's [[PhlebotoniumBreakdown self-driving and puts him in the gridlock of a traffic jam]], and Heath, being a BadassBiker in the video as a CallBack to [[Music/TaijiSawada his predecessor]] in the band, gets him out of the car and onto his bike to get to their destination.

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' has the characters mercilessly mock your driving. At one point, they tell you to go to driver's ed. And then you do. Harsh. Admittedly, it's an ''advanced'' driving school, and those classes teach you how to be an even more badass driver (even in-game, as every 100% earned on a test increases your driving skill by an amount that would take about half an hour of nonstop driving).
