* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': If you've managed to get into the Medium and you're not badass already, you will be soon enough. In a more literal CrapsackWorld example, Alternia. Even surviving past ''infant-hood'' in [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Troll]] society requires a certain degree of badassness, since [[BizarreAlienBiology wigglers]] are put through a series of harrowing trials immediately after they hatch. It says a lot that ''a thirteen year old blind girl'' from Alternia is one of the most badass characters in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', and that even the wimpiest among the trolls has strong psychic abilities that [[TheBeastmaster allow him to tame and raise a virtual army of monsters.]]

Speaking of which, effectively everything on Alternia can be fatal. LARPing is extremely dangerous, every sport is a BloodSport, those card games involve hatching actual, extremely dangerous {{Mons}}, and so on. No wonder those twelve kids beat Sburb in less than a month.

* ''VideoGame/BlazblueCrossTagBattle'' takes several of franchise/{{Blazblue}}'s biggest badasses, the [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Investigation Team]], the cast of VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth, and [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Team RWBY]], and tosses them all together in a gigantic clash of worlds.

* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': Not to the extremes of other works, but there are a lot of courageous characters in the story. Everybody pulls off risky schemes to either save their skin or save others.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' a MegaCrossover [[FusionFic fuses several badass settings]] (''Literature/HarryPotter'', ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'', ''Creator/MarvelComics'' and ''Creator/DCComics'', with hints of other fandoms and has a considerable number of characters [[TookALevelInBadass step up]] and [[AdaptationalBadass outdo their canon counterparts for badassery]]. Since it's a CrapSaccharineWorld in the fine Marvel tradition and most of the main cast are Avengers or close to them, they kind of have to be, particularly since Harry, the main character, is considerably more of a WeirdnessMagnet than in canon.

** A grand majority of the characters in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' have flashy superpowers or kick butt in different ways. Almost inevitable for a film based of Marvel comics.

* ''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.

**** 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.
