* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' falls under this trope by virtue of being a universe of CrazyAwesome and WorldOfHam. We're talking about a show that's about a BadassAdorable [[BadassArmy Army]] of kids going against equally badass ([[BewareTheSillyOnes if more than equally silly]]) villians, led by a HumanoidAbomination bent on harming and oppressing the world's children.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'', where everyone is a hard-boiled double agent who may or may not have supernatural abilities. A world where a woman gives birth to one of the most famous Chessmasters in video game history via a messy C-section ''and then immediately leads the charge at Normandy on D-Day''. A world where a hapless rookie sent on a suicide mission with no gear at all ends up becoming ''the'' greatest ProfessionalKiller in the world. A world where a mute female sniper who respirates through her skin and a legendary PMC commander suffering from old wounds and bad hallucinations can annihilate an entire Soviet tank division. A world where katana-wielding cyborgs get into fistfights with hulking, nyanomachine-implanted, all-American senators. A world where Earth's biggest badasses are nothing more than extremely well-trained men and women with charisma, willpower and [[PunchPackingPistol a silenced pistol]] face some of the most dangerous things the world has to offer, and they ''always'' come out on top.

* From the same company as ''Halo'', we have ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}''. The basic premise is a solar-system spanning, five-way war between The Guardians, immortal [[PersonOfMassDestruction Persons of Mass Destruction]], The Fallen, GadgeteerGenius SpacePirates, The Hive, magic wielding, death worshiping, undead monsters, The Vex, [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]], [[HiveMind Hive Minded]] robots that covert entier ''planets'' into machines, and The Cabal, a militarized, heavily armed GalacticSuperpower with a penchant for [[OrbitalBombardment Orbital Bombardments]] and [[EarthShatteringKaboom Earth Shattering Kabooms]]. And that's not even counting the [[AIIsACrapshoot Rogue A.I.]] hiding somewhere in the wilderness, or the handful of Guardians who have made a FaceHeelTurn over the centuries.

** That being said, a few worlds earn a specific mention, such as Cadia, which stands directly on the one way out of the setting's version of hell (that's saying quite a lot, actually), forcing the population into becoming the best soldiers of the Imperial Guard.

*** Cadia is a world where everybody has to be badass or they get killed as adults. Krieg and [[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Valhalla]] are worlds where everybody has to be badass AND they get killed as adults.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy'', although in this case it's one-third natural selection, one-third the will of the gods, and one-third taking on Bloodletters ''without'' semiautomatic rocket grenade launchers or tanks the size of small cities.

**** During the recent Indomitus Crusade launched by the revived Roboute Guilliman, the Crusade reached Catachan only to discover the planet's...well, everything, was so deadly and aggressive even the daemon armies of Chaos fled the world and avoided it. Much to the Crusade's amusement (it even boosted morale). After all, horrific, world-smashing abominations from beyond the pale are afraid of a planet humans successfully settled. "Badass" doesn't even begin to cover the Imperial Guard (who survive to become Veterans, at least).
*** Cadia is a world where everybody has to be badass or they get killed as adults.adults (or children, as there are child regiments fighting there). Krieg and [[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Valhalla]] are worlds where everybody has to be badass AND they get killed as adults.
*** Mordia is a world of badasses who live strictly disciplined lives to maintain order (really, every hive world should emulate them). So focused on discipline that they are known to execute commissars for negligence of duty if they feel the commissars were being too lenient. Commissars in Warhammer 40,000 commonly shoot their own soldiers in battle to motivate the others to fight harder out of fear. Commissars fear the Mordians. The Mordian Iron Guard regiments take this badassery and discipline to an extreme to the point that they stand in firing lines to blaze away at the enemy. Fortunately, they have carapace armor sewn into their clothing and each squad has its own house-sized tank firing over their heads. This tactic works very well, too. They also have entire companies of super-heavy tanks any one vehicle of which is capable of turning the tide of entire wars.

* In Creator/HarryHarrison's ''Literature/{{Deathworld}}'' series, the planet Pyrrus is a literal world of badasses. Even small children have to learn to be incredibly strong, quick-witted, and deadly to [[EverythingTryingtoKillYou survive for very long on Pyrrus]].

* [[CrapsackWorld Filled of crap though it may be]], ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' is this. Four out of five people in this world need to be just a little bit badass at one point in their life in order to survive it, and this includes [[BadassGrandpa old people]], [[BadassAdorable little kids]], and [[BadassPrincess princesses]] (if only for one moment). If they still don't qualify as true badasses, then they're usually big time [[ActionSurvivor action survivors]]. And even under the most [[BreakTheCutie horrific circumstances]], people don't just stop being badass: [[TookALevelInBadass they merely shift from one state of badass-ness to another.]] For instance, Casca starts out as an ActionGirl, then had a brief period of [[spoiler: being a PregnantBadass]] which horrifically ended with the Eclipse and her [[GoMadFromTheRevelation going insane as a result of it]]... only to having glimpses of her former self when she becomes a [[spoiler: BadassDamsel]].
