* Despite being a GagSeries, ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool'' is populated by [[BadAss Badass delinquents]] like Fireball of Junior 2 and Hospitalizer of Junior 3 among other crazy things like a gorilla and [[MadeOfIron Shinichi Mechazawa]].

** Possibly a ShoutOut to Shea and Wilson's ''Literature/{{Illuminatus}}'' trilogy, in which the Texan town of Bad Ass is a throwback to earlier ornery Confederate ways and has a robust attitude to all those northern carpetbagging liberal sissy notions such as desegregation. Bad Ass is an embarrassment to the rest of the USA, which uncomfortably realises that BadAss is how the rest of the world sees the ''whole'' of America.

* The entire cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. The ''least'' BadAss character would probably be the mutated flying CatGirl who can shoot electricity out of her hands.

In the World Of Badass, every character is a {{Badass}}. Even the daintiest girly-girl will be a butt-kicking GirlyBruiser. Even the scrawniest of nerds will be a BadassBookworm. Far from [[BlackDudeDiesFirst dying first]] the black dude will be [[ScaryBlackMan the guy you least want to mess with]]. And you should [[ManlyGay probably just steer clear]] [[BadassGay of gays altogether]]. Even that [[TeamPet adorable dog]] might be [[BadassAdorable tough as nails]]. May or may not be RatedMForManly, after all badassery comes in many shapes, personalities and sizes.

* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'': Basically any character that ''isn't'' a {{Badass}} is just there for decoration. Virtually every character of note kills somebody. The result is an AnyoneCanDie situation, since the entire show pretty much amounts to a bunch of {{Badass}}es all trying to kill each other. ''Spartacus'' is notable not just for the sheer number of badass characters, but also for their variety. Relevant types include ActionGirl (Mira and Saxa), BadassGay (Barca, Auctus, Agron, and Nasir), BaldOfAwesome (Doctore, although Rhaskos and Gnaeus, despite their ignoble moments, are also pretty badass), CoolOldGuy (Lucius), DarkActionGirl (Naevia, of all people), DreadlockWarrior (Barca), GeniusBruiser (Spartacus), HandicappedBadass (Ashur), HeartbrokenBadass (most of them), OneManArmy (Caesar), PregnantBadass (Lucretia and Illithyia), ScaryBlackMan (Doctore), and SilkHidingSteel (Sura and Aurelia).

* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] has a habit of making his companions {{Badass}}. Over the course of series 6 alone, Amy Pond goes from a flirtatious FieryRedhead to a full on ActionGirl, while her husband has broken the {{Badass}} scale because he has [[TookALevelInBadass taken so many levels.]] And that's not taking into account the other 40-odd years of continuity. Let's face it, the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}} is as much a World Of Badass as it is a WorldOfHam. Considering that the Whoniverse is full of [[TheMaster god-like psychopaths]], {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s, Time-Traveling mutant [[UpToEleven Super]] [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Nazis]] in flying {{mini|Mecha}}tanks, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and other baddies like flesh-eating shadows, there's no wonder it's this trope. The ''least'' {{Badass}} character would be a tin dog, and even he wields a built in gun.

* Creator/MontyOum's ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy'' series is this. Of course, ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' are both {{Badass}} worlds, but the power and skill of many characters is increased considerably and everyone is capable of kicking huge amounts of ass. The most clear example of this is [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Kairi]]; while [[LetsGetDangerous she does admittedly have her moments in the games]], she mostly stays out of fighting and acts as TheChick, but she is depicted in ''Dead Fantasy'' as an unstoppable BadassAdorable whirlwind of asskicking.

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 is an ActionGirl, then it's WorldOfActionGirls.

When a character that can freeze their opponent solid in an instant and another that can shatter boulders with their fists are mocked by fans and other characters for being ''too weak'', then this trope is inevitable.

* [[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: Badass Damsel.]]
