* In ''Literature/TheGoodTheBadAndTheMediochre'', the only two heroic characters to get shot without [[HealingFactor instantly recovering due to magic]] are [[BadassNormal Joseph]] and [[{{Dhampyr}} Dhampinella]], respectively the most badass male and female characters in the book. Joseph yells a bit but goes on to bind the wound himself in a way that implies he's used to this sort of thing, while Dhampinella's only concession to showing pain is that she holds that arm uncomfortably for a while.

* Assassin Asha from ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'' can dodge everything you throw at him... except shotgun rounds; he considers dodging them ''unmanly'', even if he's one shot away from getting killed.

* ''Manga/OnePiece:'' The mark of a big badass in the verse is how much damage they could take and still be able to move on; Luffy and Zoro are known best for this. Other characters went like this too, such as Kyros and especially Whitebeard (who's known for having lots of scars in his front but ''never'' his back, up until his death).

Added DiffLines:

* Due to the obvious nature of some contact sports, players get hurt colliding with each other, and often get a reputation as tough guys for playing through less serious injuries ("less serious" sometimes including broken bones that don't greatly hinder a player's ability to play), not to mention the more routine scrapes and bruises that are unavoidable, but don't really rise to the level of injury.
** Rugby players in particular have a reputation as tough guys, partly owing to the fact that, while the tackling rules actually result in fewer concussions than American football, the lack of face masks causes players to frequently get hit in the nose or mouth, which can cause a quite an impressive bloody mess without much actual injury beyond a broken nose.
** Ice hockey players get a similar reputation, particularly in American and Canadian leagues where fighting isn't very severely punished in most cases. Most players won't wear a face mask on their helmet unless the league requires it, so it's inevitable that they'll occasionally catch a deflected shot or pass in the face, and usually just get stitched up on the bench before returning to the game.

* Mr. Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', on several occasions where he gets hurt. In one episode, he actually ''laughs'' when he gets impaled by a bunch of knives.

* During a 1912 campaign speech, UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt was the victim of an assassination attempt; he was shot in the chest, and survived [[PocketProtector due to the bullet hitting the eyeglass case and folded speech in his breast pocket]]. Reaction? He wasn't spitting blood, so he ''stayed on the podium'' and finished his speech before going to the hospital. BadAss.

Normally, getting hurt isn't a very glorious thing. After all, if you were really that cool nothing could touch you, right? Well, sometimes getting hurt ''is'' cool, and serves to prove just how {{Badass}} a character really is.

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. Captain Mal, who is unquestionaly a {{Badass}}, tends to [[{{Determinator}} power through pain to get a job done]]. However, after being rather viciously stabbed during a [[SwordFight "Duel of Honour"]], he simply ''will not shut up'' about how he got cut, and how much it hurts. Jokingly though. He's just trying to milk it for all the sympathy it's worth.
