* After two seasons of handling things from the backseat as a proper general, James Ironwood from {{WebAnimation/RWBY}} finally shows that he is more than capable of throwing down with the rest of them. To show how much of a badass he is, he is able to solo an Alpha Beowulf with [[BlingBlingBang his]] [[HandCannon own]] [[RevolversAreJustBetter sidearm]] [[CurbstompBattle without much effort]].

Please no RealLife examples. With thousands of years of recorded history, there are enough of them to crash the entire wiki. Given the fact that being Badass is a requirement, every general in history, [[ModernMajorGeneral excepting]] those in militaries where money or [[BlueBlood family]] connections are considered more important than ability, is an example.

* Almost any film on the BattleOfTheBulge will at least mention Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe's reply to the German demand for the surrender of Bastogne: "NUTS!"

* Almost any film touching on the BattleOfTheBulge will at least mention Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe's [=McAuliffe's=] reply to the German demand for the surrender of Bastogne: "NUTS!""NUTS!" For instance, ''Film/Patton''.

* In the ''Squad Leader'' module ''Crescendo of Doom'', one scenario featured the British counterattack at Arras (1940). Leading the attack is General Gifford [=NotAWikiWord=]LeQ. Martel, who is included as a named armor leader with the highest possible ratings. In contrast, in another scenario Erwin Rommel is represented by one of the 10-3 leader counters already provided in the game and does not receive his own named counter, though the French automatically win the scenario if he is killed. When these scenarios reappeared in ''TabletopGames/AdvancedSquadLeader'' the Martel counter was not reprinted, and an equivalent leader counter substituted.

Adding some wargaming examples, and one film.
Added DiffLines:
* ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'' depicts both General James Gavin and General Roy Urquhart shooting German soldiers; in the latter case this is historical. Also, as depicted in the film, both Gavin and General Maxwell Taylor parachuted into battle, this being the normal practice for U.S. airborne division commanders; paratroopers and the World War II glider forces were badass to begin with. * Almost any film on the BattleOfTheBulge will at least mention Brigadier General Anthony C. McAuliffe's reply to the German demand for the surrender of Bastogne: "NUTS!"

Added DiffLines:
* ''Great Battles of the American Civil War'': ** Every general in each game of the series has a counter (and can be captured or killed), as well as some colonels and the occasional major. As with most such games, their purpose is for command and control of the units under them, though most can influence melee combat if present. The more badass the general was historically, usually the better his ratings. (In the larger battles, overall commanders like Robert E. Lee are there for historical purposes and have no ratings.) * In the ''Squad Leader'' module ''Crescendo of Doom'', one scenario featured the British counterattack at Arras (1940). Leading the attack is General Gifford [=NotAWikiWord=]LeQ. Martel, who is included as a named armor leader with the highest possible ratings.

* In ''TheSalvationWar'', the fictional version of the aforementioned David Petraeus (the point of divergence being January 2008) led the combined human forces (albeit operationally only the US military) against the legions of Hell, leading to [[CurbStompBattle some of the most lopsided battles in human history]]. They've since been [[RageAgainstTheHeavens aimed at Heaven]]. Oh, and he has release authority over ''multiple'' nations' nuclear, biological and chemical arsenals (in Heaven anyway).

** (General) Toot-Toot is quite the Five Star Badass,first he is the leader of the Za-Lord's Guard. Secondly in a true Crowning Moment of Awesome he survived fighting an Eldrich Abomination so nasty and powerful that it took a Member of the Senior Council to scare off. He did this after said Eldrich Abomination had wiped the floor with with Harry for the second time. Toot-Toot is a six inch tall Dew Drop Fairy, and was armed with a box cutter and armour made out of garbage scraps and Harry is one of greatest combat focused wizards on the entire White Council of Wizards. Let that sink in for a moment, an fairy with no real magical power came to the rescue of one the greatest wizards in direct combat, who was at the time having was being beaten with in an inch of his life. Toot-Toot was swatted away but only after being a Mosquito from hell for several minutes. He most likely is the physically least threatening person on this page but he is Badass through and through.
