* Parodied in ''TheWayOfTheMetagamer'', in which everyone from the future is badass, no matter ''how far'' from the future they are. Even characters from five minutes in the future are incredibly badass.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' MadeForTVMovie, the beginning shows Timmy's geeky friends Chester and AJ as buff adults, fighting against a bunch of {{Mooks}}. Later, Timmy's badass future self also shows up.

* In ''XCOMEnemyUnknown'', Bradford is a neat, clean cut, by the book man in tie and sweeter. By the events of ''XCOM2'', he's become a grizzled, cynical, hard-drinking BadassGrandPa with CoolScars. Not to say he wasn't tough in the first game, but in the second he seriously TookALevelInBadass

** ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Played with in that we meet the badass version first. Reverse Flash is a villain from the future who is much more powerful than Flash and curb-stomps him every time they fight unless he has help. Eventually, a younger, less experienced version of him arrives in the present who is easily defeated by Flash.

* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' had a rare villainous exemple, by having Omi travel to the future via self-imposed cryogenics, only to discover that [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Jack Spicer]], of all people, had [[TookALevelInBadass conquered the world]], imprisonned the rest of the Xiaolin monks, enslaved his rival villains, and now ruled with an iron fist. And all it took was for Omi to be missing.

* ''{{Tsukihime}}'': According to several released small stories, in the future Tohno[/Nanaya] Shiki will become the Dead Apostle-slaying assassin Satsujinki, who has surpassed his past limits. One such story begins with him wiping out one of the 27 Dead Apostles, ''without him even noticing he was dead until it was far too late''.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' did this. It jumps into a future where TheRapture happens, and Stan is left behind. Him and {{Jesus}} team up to fight {{Satan}}. He's already a reasonably bad-ass CIA agent, but in the future he's a full on ripped FutureBadass with an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]]. Strangely, there is nothing to suggest it's not the real, canon future. In fact, that episode's BigBad later appears (albeit much younger) in another episode.
