* [[TricksterMentor Cross]] Marian in ''Manga/DGrayMan'' necessitated a hunt across half of Asia by the Black Order, then sauntered in and saved Allen's ass on the Ark. His superiors at the Black Order were not amused by his tendency to go truant and put him under house arrest, and he spent quite a while lounging around headquarters, [[ChivalrousPervert seducing women]], racking up insane amounts of debt on the Order's tab, and [[CoolMask completely]] [[BadassLongcoat outshining]] [[NiceHat every]] [[TheGunslinger damn]] [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority person]] [[RevolversAreJustBetter in the]] [[FourStarBadass whole]] place, as was aptly demonstrated when [[spoiler:Lulu Bell attacked.]] He was attacked at HQ, with his gun, and mask left at the scene. Komui exams the bullet hole in his mask, and tells other generals that all the blood belonged to Cross and that the wound would have been fatal. [[spoiler: However, it's been revealed that he survived the shot to his head, but has only been placed in a ConvenientComa because of it. Road reveals it when she states she wants him to keep sleeping, in chapter 222]]
** Although [[spoiler:because he was apparently shot in the head in a way that [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat nothing human could have survived]], and all the blood found at the scene was confirmed to be his, chances are he's either genuinely dead, or not human]].

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' got a rare female example in [[FetishFuelStationAttendant Oerba]] Yun [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Fang]]. Her Australian accent in the English dub only increased her already considerable badass quotient. Fortunately for the shippers, she only goes into crystal stasis. FixFic here we come!.

* Nihlus Kryik from the first ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect|1}}''. BadAss Spectre, intrigued by the potential of the human race, clearly established as a mentor for Shepard, dies thirty minutes into the game. Samara (from the second game) describes how he outwitted her after a ''two week'' game of cat and mouse: namely, turning her own Code against her. Bear in mind that Samara is a thousand year old asari [[WarriorMonk Justicar]] that started fighting injustice around the same time Napoleon was marching on Moscow.

* Pankraz from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV''. Since he's never actually player-controlled, the game only gives brief glimpses of how {{badass}} he is, but it's more than enough to show he would've been a top-tier party member all the way to the end of the game. Especially given his unique ability to attack twice every turn.

* Max aka [=HandofBlood=] in TubeClash, a german Website/YouTube series, where animated versions of german Youtubers team up and fight each other to survive, {{Battle Royale}} style. The aforementioned Max makes it all the way to the penultimate epsiode, by now qualifying as the greatest {{badass}} of the remaining three, having defeated a giant serpent all by himself earlier and using a gigantic Samurai sword as his weapon of choice. Despite his physical superiority over the others however, he chooses to instead sacrifice himself to allow the remaining two to move on. May also qualify as {{Heroic Sacrifice}}.

* In ''SamuraiDeeperKyo'', we have Muramasa, Taihaku, Fubuki, and most definitely Hishigi. One could also make an argument for Kyosaburo (also known as the Toudai Aka no Ou), a PosthumousCharacter who created the Mumyo Jinpu Ryu, techniques capable of killing ''God'' (the Sendai Aka no Ou).
