* Carl Hollywood, a secondary character from Creator/NealStephenson's ''Literature/TheDiamondAge'', would not even come close to being described as a bad ass for most of the book. He is for all intents and purposes the manager of a theater, and the job mostly fits his personality. He was, however, also raised essentially as a cowboy. So, at one point toward the end of the book while clad in a leather cowboy duster complete with hat and boots he proceeds to (with a small group of others) fight his way through a future Shanghai in the middle of a war zone.

* Kuroudou Akabane in ''GetBackers'': long, black and very elegant. Ban Mido would fall under the "excessively long shirt" subset.

* Brandon "Beyond The Grave" Heat from ''{{Gungrave}}'' in both the anime and video game. He wears an intricately detailed purple coat with a [[CreepyCoolCrosses large Gothic cross emblazoned on the back]]. And ''lots'' of little studs and buttons. Even in normal clothes he wears a black longcoat that is mostly prominent in the anime (in the game he's seen wearing it only in the opening and quickly changes to his "battle suit").

* [[PsychoForHire Radinov]] in the ''GunsmithCats'' anime wears a bulletproof one but can't be bothered to keep it closed even during gunfights - either because she carries most of her arsenal inside it or because she's [[AxCrazy batshit insane]].

* A ''{{Redwall}}'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5127152/1/Chess fanfiction]] featured a pine marten in an embroidered black trench coat. [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief Who cares that trench coats are a bit out of place in Redwall,]] [[RuleOfCool IT'S AWESOME.]]

* Saiga in ''SpeedGrapher'' usually has one of the shorter examples, but one opening shows it billowing like a Batman-style BadassCape. The villain Suitengu has a longer one that doubles as a [[PimpDuds Pimp Coat]].

* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'': Captain Jack Harkness wears a [[http://z.about.com/d/scifi/1/0/m/1/-/-/03Torchwood_333x500.jpg Royal Air Force greatcoat]] as part of his iconic 1940s-style ensemble. Rhys Williams refers to him as "That bloke with the coat" several times. Naturally, after being blown up one of his major priorities is replacing it.

During one Comic-Con, actor John Barrowman joked with the cast of ''Series/{{Spartacus}}'' that because his character always wears a longcoat, he doesn't have to watch his diet like they do.

* ''TheWire'': Omar Little uses a duster to conceal his kevlar vest and double-barreled shotgun while robbing drug dealers.

* In the first ''[[ShinMegamiTenseiI Shin Megami Tensei]]'', although the Chaos Hero sports an urban camo trenchcoat and a brash demeanor, he is physically weak and openly admits to such, constantly relying on other characters for help. Although that may [[CutsceneIncompetence not be the case during gameplay]]... ** In Persona2, the Masquerade bosses sport these. ** In DevilSurvivor2, these are ''standard uniform'' for [[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction JP's.]]

* VideoGame/SengokuBasara's [[BattleButler Katakura Kojuurou]] wears a brown duster that sweeps to the ground. It's utterly anachronistic, but hey, what's history when compared to badassery, right? And he's so badass that they made him playable in the expansion pack. * MickeyMouse in ''KingdomHearts''. Seriously. Also anyone else wearing Organization XIII's uniform. All of them and Riku and [=DiZ=]. You can purchase a [[http://abbyshot.com/products/ps-enigma.php long coat replica]] or a [[http://abbyshot.com/products/ps-kingdom-hoodie.php hoodie version]].

** Continuing the tradition, ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' offers a number of different longcoat options. The Silver Shroud costume is a long, black trench coat paired with the Silver Shroud's iconic silver ScarfOfAsskicking, and comes with a matching NiceHat and CoolGun to complete the look. You can also try out the Minutemen General's outfit, which combines an American revolutionary war-era style coat worn over painted combat armour to look a bit like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's costume. The BadassLongcoat is also the garb of choice for Nick Valentine (who has one which makes him look like a 50's film noir detective) and Hancock (who prefers a nautical pirate-style one).
