* In a ''ComicStrip/TwistedToyfareTheatre'' strip about Sam Worthington (star of ''Film/{{Avatar}}'') infiltrating the Manly Men of Action at James Cameron's behest, this is part of his training. "Ow! [[BruceWillis Mr. Willis]], the explosion singed off my back hair!" "That's good! Manly men don't have body hair. Now keep walking all slow!"

* Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine scaled this up to entire spaceships. The Defiant was always flying away from explosions at the last minute, showing no concern for the mayhem behind it. Even if someone else had to blow something up to make it happen. Particularly notable examples in Tears of the Prophets (the power system for the weapons platforms) and Sacrifice of Angels (a Cardassian warship which serves no purpose except to blow up section by section after the Defiant flies past).

* Occurs at the end of ''Film/{{Shooter}}'', when [[MarkWahlberg Bob Lee Swagger]] kills the [[BigBad Big Bads]] as well as their men in their own private house then blows up the house along with them.

* Malgus of TheOldRepublic fame does one towards danger in the Return trailer. Having just grabbed his [[DualWielding master's lightsaber]], he walks toward a Jedi master while effortlessly slicing apart the various debris thrown at him until he finally leaps through an exploding turbine.

* In 'I'M ON CRACK' by [[MindlessSelfIndulgence The Left-Rights]], the Josh Harraway launches Mike Diva's car into space, where it comes back down. As Josh walks away, the car crashes into the ground behind him and creates a huge explosion, and all Josh does is pull out a pair of sunglasses and put them on.

* 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''.]]
