* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has a wide variety of badass preachers, especially in the [[TheEmpire Imperium of Man]]. How badass? Well, they gladly lead charges against aliens, mutants, and daemons with nothing but their faith, their robes, and their blessed Eviscerator-pattern chainswords and holy flamethrowers.
** The [[SuperSoldier Space Marines]] have the Chaplains, which aren't just nine-foot tall supermen wielding a full-auto grenade launcher, they are nine-foot tall supermen wielding a power-field baton with a [[BlingOfWar giant golden aquila]] on top.
** Several Chapters have their own takes on Chaplains. The [[Literature/SpaceWolf Space Wolves]] have Wolf Priests (Space Viking shamans that can cause storms and earthquakes), BloodAngels have Sanguinary Priests ({{Combat Medic}}s tasked with watching for signs of the [[UnstoppableRage Red Thirst]], which the Chaplains then take command of those who have fallen to it), and the evil version used by the Word Bearers, who preach the twisted dogma that makes men fall to Chaos.
** Speaking of the Word Bearers, they're basically a ''whole legion'' of badass preachers. It's because of this (and the Emperor's rejection of religion entirely) that cause the Horus Heresy in the first place.
* [[DropTheHammer Luthor]] [[DarkMessiah Huss]], a DarkerAndEdgier {{Expy}} of [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Martin Luther and Jn Hus]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. Also, pretty much any Warrior Priest or Witch Hunter.

** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', the Slaughterpriests of the Bloodbound Warhordes are the blood-soaked holy men of the Lord of Skulls who lead the fellows in their dark rites of worship.

Related to TurbulentPriest who fights with his words. Subtrope of RealMenLoveJesus. Contrast with SinisterMinister. If [[{{Jesus}} the Lord Himself]] is kicking ass, that's KungFuJesus.

* An awful lot of prophet heroes from Literature/TheBible. Elijah, for example, is a prophet and preacher who survives living under a corrupt regime, kills a whole bunch of Baal-worshippers after proving their god false, and ''[[SuperSpeed outruns a chariot]]''. His [[Franchise/StarWars padawan]], Elisha, could command ''[[BearsAreBadNews attack bears]]''. Moses and Aaron stood up to the Egyptian Pharaoh, and would later become the chief prophet and chief priest respectively. Oh, and then there's {{Jesus}}, who when not preaching personally out-argued {{Satan}} and managed to keep enough composure while'' '''mid-crucifixion''' ''to [[BadassPacifist ask the Lord to forgive the men who killed him]].

* In ''Literature/{{Quazi}}'', Protopresbyter Pyotr turns out to be the legendary Army Captain Pyotr Melenkov, who repelled the Risen attack on Moscow during the days of the ZombieApocalypse by positioning his tanks along the Ring Road. His fame nearly made him President, but he left the public eye in remorse over killing so many people, even if they were undead, and joined the Church. He volunteers to join Denis and Mikhail to enter the Temple that holds over a thousand hungry Risen. When asked by Denis whether Pyotr believes in God (considering the undead situation), Pyotr answers that it doesn't matter, all that matter is that God believe in him. [[spoiler:He ends up making a HeroicSacrifice to keep the undead horde from being unleashed on Moscow and is torn to pieces, leaving nothing to Rise.]]
