* OlderThanFeudalism: ''Literature/TheIliad''. The protagonist Achilles single-handedly pushes back the entire Trojan army back to the Trojan walls and is such a mighty warrior that Zeus tells the gods he's worried Achilles might [[BeyondTheImpossible break Fate itself]] in his desire to conquer Troy, Hector duels Achilles (he loses, but the fact that he's even willing to fight at all is awesome), and gets 2 books dedicated to him slaughtering people on the battlefield, Diomedes [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu wins fights with not one but]] ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu two gods]]'' and is described by the Trojans as being [[TheDreaded even scarier than Achilles]] despite the fact that he, unlike Achilles, [[BadassNormal is fully human and has no superpowers]]... Basically the only important character who isn't a total badass is Paris of Troy.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', the 10 Braves have powerful elemental magic abilities and everyone kicks ass in this series. Only Isanami is an exception, and not quite [[spoiler:since she is a GodInHumanForm]]. By the sequel, she is able to beat Izumo no Okuni with battle fans.

** Asgard, [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'s homeworld, definitely counts. The children are as strong as Franchise/SpiderMan, and the average Asgardian can [[SuperStrength lift 25 tons.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Granted, most of the perspective is from the military of both humans and the Covenant. ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' puts this UpToEleven with ''everyone'' getting a chance to show how badass they are - even the Unggoy.

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.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats''. Yes, nearly every single one of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 700-some characters]] is trained to fight and can hold their own in a battle.

* The entire Esper population of Academy City in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex.''
** And the Mages are no slouches either.
** As well as some of the normal ones too!



* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' plays with this. In a word where everybody has super powers, not all of them are fitting to big acts of badassery, such as simply attracting small objects. The series though focus on the group of in training super heroes that scored the highest grades on the entrance test, thus focusing on a group with powers such as SuperStrength, control gravity, create fire and ice, create various objects, having engines on their body, creating explosions and so on.

* It doesn't matter what someone's archetype is in ''LightNovel/HorizonInTheMiddleOfNowhere'', because they'll be able to abuse the setting's [[ClarkesThirdLaw Sufficiently Advanced Science]] to be badass. Kimi, a dancer, is literally ''untouchable'' in combat. Shirojiro, a merchant, can fight giant robots ''with his bare hands''. Toori, a fool, is a ''bottomless'' energy well. Neshinbara, an author, can make ''anything'' happen just by ''writing it''. And they're the '''support''' types. Armed characters will do anything from be a shield, to cut anything they want, to summon legions of the undead instantly, to ground flying ships in single blows, and anything in between.
