* Lt. Col. Frank Slade from ''Film/ScentOfAWoman''. He does the tango with a beautiful stranger who's waiting on her boyfriend, drives a Ferrari BLIND, and completely and utterly owns snobby schoolmasters. Plus, he's played by AlPacino, which doubles his badassitude.

***From Shadow Warfare onward, Colonel Philip Locke takes the reigns of leadership from Dalton after she has made questionable decisions during the course of the season and becomes the official leader after her untimely death. Colonel Phillip Locke is a 30 year veteran of the British Army and served in every conflict Britain was involved in during that time. Stonebridge is clearly impressed that Locke is involved in their mission. Locke then proves his reputation correct when he singlehandly saves Major Dalton from a hitman. When the team are ambushed at an airport, Locke's response is to go on the offensive and kill everything (until getting attacked from behind). Later, when forced to dig his own grave, he instead kills the men guarding him, and nearly escaped on his own. And even while wounded and being tortured, and offered the name of the man who killed his son, he still won't give up NATO secrets.

* William H. Kraft of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is an [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric]] example, since he considers himself a subject of the German Emperor and leads his armored battalion through the campaign to defend New York dressed in a blue, late 19th-century Prussian greatcoat and Pickelhaube. Notwithstanding, he is both a savvy political operator and an absolutely terrifying enemy.

* ''WesternAnimation/TennesseeTuxedoAndHistales'': If any of Commander [=McBragg=]'s tales are true (which is highly debatable), he would definitely qualify.

Added DiffLines:

* Colonel K, the superior to WesternAnimation/DangerMouse, has many accomplishments to his credit (piano throwing, climbing Mt. Everest on a pogo stick, etc.), and his mission orders are iron clad. It gets subverted sometimes as he can be as addled as DM's assistant Penfold.

* Washington's protege Alexander Hamilton became a colonel during the revolution. His contemporaries (including his mistress) referred to him as Colonel Hamilton throughout his civilian career. He didn't do many badass things during the war, but his life included such highlights as founding America's first bank, building the treasury department, creating the Coast Guard, and helping suppress the Whiskey Rebellion.

Imagine TheCaptain, but instead of a ship at sea or in the [[SpaceIsAnOcean stars]], s/he has a large contingent of ground troops. Still the most kickass guy around, powerful leader, outranks everyone else in TheSquad, you know the type. Chances are, he is gonna be a colonel.
