* Because of the threat of suicide bombings against a certain girls school in Afghanistan, the complex was walled with only one gate placed far away from the main school building. At this gate a single teacher would sit, watching the gate. If a suicide bomber entered the teacher would attack him and try to detonate the explosive, [[HeroicSacrifice killing them both]]. And if that's not badass enough, the teachers were [[BadassGrandma 50 year-old women]].

* Godzilla Junior becomes one in ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' after realizing Mariner Chibi Moon, a hyperactive fangirl he initially wrote off, was actually a lot like himself before he lost his innocence and becomes her sensei. Considering he's ''Godzilla'' and is a OneManArmy even in his unicorn form, this comes naturally.

** Mad-Eye Moody would be the straightest example. Both, [[spoiler: the real Moody, even though he never gets a chance to actually be a badass while a teacher, and the fake Moody, who manages to do a great job of impersonating a badass]].

*** Almost all of [=McGonagall=]'s interactions with Umbridge qualify as this. She repeatedly mocks or snarks at Umbridge, who could fire her with a word to Fudge if she wished, and encourages Peeves to screw with her. And when Umbridge starts trying to pick on Harry and the other students, [=McGonagall=] does her best to stop her or thwart her.

** Most, if not all, of the teachers [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]] in the Battle of Hogwarts in the final book, using their significant magical knowhow to great effect. There's a reason that Hogwarts is often called "the safest place to keep something".

[=McCoy=]. This is the guy who's responsible for [[spoiler: Krakatoa, the New Madrid Earthquake, and Tunguska, amongst others]]. He's mastered the ColonyDrop, and if you mess with [[spoiler: his grandson]], he ''will'' [[NotHyperbole drop a satellite on your head]].

* Miss Wilson in the ChaletSchool series. Leading a group of kids to safety through a secret passageway, with a gang of angry Nazis in hot pursuit? I'd say that's pretty badass. Doubles as a MamaBear moment.

* Most of the teachers in ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook'' fall under this, Bull especially. When outside forces threaten their students and actively harm one of their colleagues, they join forces to take back the school. The badassery makes sense, given that the teachers are the inner circle of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' transplanted into a HighSchoolAU.



* Principal Duvall in ''Film/MeanGirls''. Doesn't do anything typically badass during the film, but sometimes sheer presence is enough: looking at the man, especially when he's giving a stern lecture whilst wielding a baseball bat, just tell me you wouldn't a) hang on to his every word or b) not want to take him on in a fight.

* Principal "Crazy Joe" Clark, from Film/LeanOnMe comes across as a SternTeacher, but in reality is a BadassTeacher for his entire school, chaining the doors during the school day to keep the students in and the bad influences out. Remembered largely for carrying a bullhorn and a baseball bat.

* ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'': He's [[JerkAss a dick]], but what does Snape do when he sees Lupin transformed? ''Instinctively puts himself between an out-of-control werewolf and his three least favorite students.'' This becomes even more apparent when you take into account that [[spoiler:this was the same werewolf that had nearly killed him as a teenager.]] And he didn't even have his wand!

* [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Set]] is the Egyptian God of the desert, storms and violence. In ''Roleplay/IliadQuest'', he is also a master of Egyptian Pugilism. This happens to involve [[ImprobableWeaponUser copious amounts of sand.]]

* [[Webcomic/Paranatural]] has the history teacher and Activity Club's sponsor, Rick Spender. He's a melodramatic dork and his bio claims that the words athletic, mysterious, and intellectual have nothing to do with him. While that's accurate, he has been said to have [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass defeated the singular strongest spirit.]] [[spoiler: When he fights the fire spirit Forge, it's revealed that said strongest spirit has possessed Mr. Spender (note that possession just means that Mr. Spender has access to the spirit's powers and the spirit doesn't die; Mr. Spender is still in control) and can control shadows, which lets him [[http://www.paranatural.net/index.php?id=288 trap Forge in a pit made from the shadow of a tree, then obliterates his lower half by using his partner spirit Lucifer's light powers to erase the shadow.]]]]

** Miss LeHane worked as one, and did a pretty good job of it as well, trying to stop the school from being turned into vampires. She's the freaking [[TheChosenOne Slayer.]] She whips Drusilia without breaking a sweat. And she's savvy enough to do well on the teacher part.
