* ''TechInfantry'' has Colonel Arthur Clarke, commanding officer of the Raptors, an elite military unit tasked with chasing down and arresting (or killing) draft-dodging Werewolves and Mages, as well as other secret operations. His successor, Colonel Andrea Treschi, is quite the badass himself.

* Colonel Carrillo in ''Series/Narcos'', a highly competent and honest - if somewhat brutal - military officer and the only guy that Escobar was afraid of.

* The abilities of soldiers in ''{{VideoGame/XCOM}} generally improve as they survive more missions, as does their rank. The rank of colonel is the second highest in ''[[VideoGame/XCOMUFODefense UFO Defense]]'', next to the commander which you can only get one of at any time.

* Cpt. Keyes from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Sure, in the games he only gives you your first gun, but in the books [[AdaptationalBadass he's epic]]. He takes a soldier's pistol and blasts an invisible Elite in one shot right after escaping the locked-in-landing Pillar of Autumn, and manages to survive for a remarkable time on the Halo ring.

* In the '{{Daria}}' FanFic series 'Legion of Lawndale Heroes', there are ''two'' ColonelBadass types - Colonel Kyle Armalin, and Colonel Franklin Davers. The latter's an Army Special Forces type, the former a Marine aviator with a LOT of covert paramilitary experience from shooting things all over the world. Just to cement his {{badass}} cred, first look at the first initials of his full name - '''K'''yleton '''I'''saiah '''A'''rmalin... and then, also consider that he was given his middle name in honor of ''Isaiah Bradley - the FIRST Captain America'', and an 'old-school' BadAss if EVER there was one.

* Col. Sam Trautman, the former trainer and commander of none other than John Franchise/{{Rambo}}. He's more of the ObiWan in the movies than ColonelBadass, but he gets this status because of his line in [[Film/FirstBlood the first movie]]:
