* Kishou Arima, from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. A legendary [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigator]] known as the "God of Death", he never removes his glasses even while pulling off incredibly quick, acrobatic moves. Artwork frequently features bloodstains on his glasses, adding to his fearsome appearance.

** Why has nobody mentioned Maxie from Omega Ruby? Not only is he the [[BadAss leader of Team Magma who managed to succeed in raising Groudon]], he even uses those glasses to [[SuperMode Mega Evolve his Camerupt]].

* From ''RosarioToVampire'', we have [[GeniusBruiser Hokuto]] [[OneWingedAngel Kaneshiro]], the BigBad of Season I. When they meet him again in Season II, the gap between him and [[TheHero Tsukune]] is wide enough that he can [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] him ''[[HandicappedBadass from his wheelchair]]''!

This trope has only two requirements: you must be {{badass}}, and you must wear glasses while demonstrating your badassery. Often overlaps with BadassBookworm and GeniusBruiser, in which case the wearer is also likely to be TheStoic and frequently display AwesomenessByAnalysis. These, however, are merely common traits, not requirements.

To qualify for this trope, the character in question must be {{badass}} while still wearing glasses, otherwise it's TheGlassesComeOff. Distinct from CoolShades in that these are actual, transparent glasses. Compare and Contrast StoicSpectacles, where the character is witty but not necessarily action oriented.

* [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Kabuto]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is clearly a {{badass}} even before he [[spoiler:fuses with Orochimaru's flesh]]. ''After'' he does that, well... let's just say he's able to intimidate the apparent BigBad!
