* In the BMovie ''Spiders'', a space shuttle which had been carrying a secret military experiment makes a crash landing somewhere in the Nevada desert. The military shows up not long afterwards, and [[FieryCoverup to cover it up]], the BigBad plants the explosives himself, and walks away. When the shuttle explodes a few moments later, the Big Bad walks away unflinching, while his fretful [[TheDragon second-in-command]], walking right beside him, cowers and covers his head. Bonus points for the Big Bad doing this [[BadAssInANiceSuit while in a suit]].

** Companion Rory Williams caps his ascension from ButtMonkey to BadAss in the opening of "A Good Man Goes To War." An entire Cyber-fleet is blowing up behind him, and he merely stares at the Cybermen in front of him, and says, [[spoiler:"Would you like me to repeat the question?"]] (Alas, no walk, but it definitely falls under the "not looking at the explosion" heading.)

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/{{Smith}}'', although the protagonists are doing an UnflinchingWalk away from their exploding getaway boat, the scene is rendered decidedly more depressing than BadAss by the choice of background music (ImogenHeap 's "Hide and Seek") and the fact that the boat contained the corpse of a colleague who didn't survive the heist.

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4'', during the mission "One Shot, One Kill" Captain [=MacMillian=] and then-Lieutenant Price take down a Hind helicopter with their sniper rifles. The Captain then turns away from the crashing helicopter, quips "Good night, ya bastard," and does an UnflinchingWalk away from it as it crashes. [[spoiler: On ''top'' of him. Price has to carry the Captain all the way to the extraction point.]] But the BadAss-ness of that scene was so ''worth it.''

* Faren Brosca in ''DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns'' calmly walks away from the center of the proving arena and towards the exit after beating Seweryn and the twins, respectively. Both were [[CurbstompBattle curbstomp battles]] made particularly awesome by the fact that he was undercover, wearing his Dark Wolf attire. Said attire consists of a dark leather armor suit, a black cloak, which is more of an AllEncompassingMantle, a black scarf (covered his nose and lower face) whose ends flowed through the air behind him ''and'' an equally black headband that doubled as a mask (covered his upper face but had eye holes), also with the bands tying it in place billowing behind him in a dramatic breeze. All the while, the crown was either staring in awe or cheering... and he's not even the protagonist.

** Also, Summer Glau turns her robot badassey up to eleven in [[http://imgbox.com/FFqqO6so this scene]] where she drives a truck off a cliff and walks away over the top of it. She does turn to look at the crash afterwards, though.

** In ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare3'', [[spoiler:Price and Yuri perform this towards Makarov's safehouse in the final level, machine gunning Makarov's troops without hesitation while wearing full [[TheJuggernaut Juggernaut suits]], rendering them almost impervious to the incoming gunfire. The sheer levels of {{Badass}} in that level are ''astounding''.]]

* In one episode of ''Series/CSIMiami'', {{badass}} CSI agent Horatio Caine finds a bomb in a car they have impounded. Realizing he has only minutes until it detonates, he jumps in, drives the car out of the garage, through the streets of Miami (with [[V8EngineNoises appropriate roaring engine noises]], weaving in and out of traffic, etc.) and races to a deserted stretch of beach. He then calmly takes his sunglasses off, gets out of the car, [[GlassesPull puts his sunglasses back on]] and executes an UnflinchingWalk, complete with badass black clothes and sunglasses.

-->'''Tip #234:''' Walking away from an explosion without looking at it is generally considered ‘cool’. Less cool is ending up in the hospital for months because you didn’t see a piece of shrapnel flying in your direction. Bear this in mind.

* {{Discussed|Trope}} in the audio commentary of ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'': the actor who plays Norrington comments that he wanted a moment like this at the part where Norrington tells the governor to barricade himself in an office during the pirate attack, but unfortunately he blinked when the explosion went off behind him.
