Contrast with OvershadowedByAwesome, where a character is by reasonable means strong compared to regular people or even superpowerful, but can only be considered "normal" when compared to the people they hang out with, who are vastly stronger. Because of this they often CantCatchUp. Also contrast SuperLoser, for characters who are anything but badass despite having superpowers. BroughtDownToNormal arcs can show a super powered individual can be badass without their powers but that does not qualify them for this trope. This is a character type, not a plot trope.

Contrast with OvershadowedByAwesome, where a character is by reasonable means strong compared to regular people or even superpowerful, but can only be considered "normal" when compared to the people they hang out with, who are vastly stronger. Because of this they often CantCatchUp. Also contrast SuperLoser, for characters who are anything but {{badass}} despite having superpowers. BroughtDownToNormal arcs can show a super powered individual can be bad ass without their powers but that does not qualify them for this trope. This is a character type, not a plot trope.

'''Note for Tropers:''' This trope '''only''' applies if the setting possesses a significant number of characters with superpowers. In a setting where superpowers are very uncommon or nonexistent, {{Badass}} characters without superpowers [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment are just badass]]. If you encounter an instance of a character in a setting without superpowers being called a Badass Normal, please remove or change it. For average people that are forced to be a badass by the situation, see ActionSurvivor. For costumed heroes without superpowers in general, see NonPoweredCostumedHero. Anyone from a WitchSpecies who can't be defined as a MuggleBornOfMages is disqualified.
