The World of Badass will occasionally, due to the comparably high level of {{H|olyShitQuotient}}SQ, overlap with the WorldOfHam and AdventureFriendlyWorld. However, it's also possible for this trope to be applied to [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack]] or {{Dystopia}}n worlds where every character is a badass out of necessity, see HadToBeSharp. This trope is not to be confused with WorldOfBuxom, although to two can overlap. (see BoobsOfSteel for proof) If every badass in an ActionGirl, then it's WorldOfActionGirls.

* Axis Powers Hetalia is a non-CrapsackWorld example. It is a comedic anime about anthropomorphic personifications of various nations, with some countries, for example the superpowers, being rather childish. America calls himself hero and loves video games, China loves Hello Kitty and Russia considers everyone his friend and loves sunflowers. Still, they're superpowers and we also see America swinging a buffalo over his head as a child, China beating up the entire Axis with a wok and Russia being late to a meeting because he was practising to stop tanks with his body...

* In the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' series, the world of Mid-Childa is a non-CrapsackWorld example. Generally, the rule is that if it comes from Mid-Childa and has a name, it will be able to annihilate you. It doesn't matter whether you are talking about five year old girls, ferrets or six inch cute mascots. [[TomeOfEldritchLore Or books.]] This is because a large portion of Mid-Childan population are capable of magic, and damn near anyone with that talent attends a MagicSchool where advanced magical combat replaces your regular PE. All of this under the auspices of the galaxy-spanning MildlyMilitary SpacePolice that is so short on hands that they're willing to hire nine year-olds, as long as they can use magic--all the while the memories of a centuries-long GreatOffscreenWar some 80 years ago are still painfully fresh. So yeah, it may not be a CrapsackWorld, but only because all the badasses in it at some point decided that there had to be another way.

And then we get other superheroes like ComicBook/GreenArrow and the rest of the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, along with many of DC's supervillains. Put it this way, almost every main or recurring character (and even most of the one-shot characters) either ''are'' badass already, or ''become'' badass with CharacterDevelopment.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' comes very close. Every character from top to bottom seems to get at least one moment of absolute {{Badass}}, from the protagonist, to her LoveInterest {{Love Interest|s}} (and another, [[BettyAndVeronica and third]]), to a traveling show full of [[spoiler:minor [[MadScientist Spark]]s]], to some supposedly [[{{Mooks}} random soldier]] who woke up to find his airship on fire, to that ''[[PrincessesPreferPink pretty pink princess]]'' (fake, though [[spoiler:she's a noble too]]). Oh, and [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070516 Mechanicsburg]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081105 managed to]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20111214 clearly]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120824 stand out]] even ''there''.



* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' has a truly fascinating example. The galaxy is just filled with {{Mook}}s for Tagon's Toughs to savage, and {{Worthy Opponent}}s to return the favor. But the Toughs themselves have a ''contagious'' case of Badass. They pick up a (ir)reverend (because he was the sole applicant) and a doctor (based on her cup size). The reverend is soon skewering enemy eyeballs with a fencing foil. The doctor ends up leading troops into curbstomps and delivering speeches "Like Patton with boobs". They grab a bunch of loser thugs off from a WretchedHive on a ScavengerWorld. The one with no arms can float like a butterfly(with gravitic assists) and sting like a bee (as in wrestle entire gangs with her tongue). They grab a WrenchWench off a UNS battleplate that wants to get rid of her. She slaughters mobs singlehandedly (with PoweredArmor and PostVictoryCollapse). Join The Toughs. Be Badass.

* ''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, lead by a HumanoidAbomination bent on harming and oppressing the world's children.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''. There are vicious, the [[HumanoidAbomination Makuta]], the brain washing bohrak, a sleeping god, corrupt politicians, and [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking freaky looking vehicles]]. To deal with it, they have Toa warriors. Hell. Yes.
