* ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' sometimes feel like they're populated solely by either {{Badass Normal}}s or witches. Granted, there are civillians mentioned from time to time, but if a character gets a name, they're a {{badass}} - no exceptions.

** Then there's Italy, who's always quick to raise the white flag when he gets attacked. But as Chibitalia, he once defeated the turkish Ottoman Empire. While the charakters in Hetalia in general don't spend that much time being badass, it doesn't mean they can't be, if they want to.

* [[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.]]

* Every noteworthy character in ''Manhua/RavagesOfTime'' is a certified badass, even more so than in the [[RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms source material]] and most adaptations. Keep in mind that "noteworthy" here means [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters in excess of a few dozen characters]], and the manhua has not even covered a third of the original novel!

* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', you pretty much have to be this if you even hope of surviving in the Demon World, a place populated with [[PhysicalGod A and S Class Demons]]. Hiei himself [[LevelGrinding slaughtered over 500 A class demons]] in order to get himself to an S Class demon. To prevent an all out war between three nations, the Demon World had to set up a AsskickingEqualsAuthority Tournament where the winner would be crowned king of the Demon World.

* The ''Literature/{{Sandokan}}'' saga is set in such a world: Marianna, Sandokan's LoveInterest (and later wife), is a MilitaryBrat who can shoot a rifle with the best and has no qualms hunting tigers; Darma, Tremal Naik's daughter named after his pet tiger, is actually more dangerous than her namesake, as tigers can't shoot; Tremal Naik and his old crew in the Black Jungle (of which only Kammamuri survived their debut novel) made a living out of hunting tigers in a very dangerous jungle; the Thuggee killed off most of Tremal Naik's fellow hunters, with their leader Suyodhana overpowering Tremal Naik in single combat (and he's [[PintSizedPowerhouse lean and short]] while Tremal Naik is described as tall and muscolar); and so on, with the title of most badass character being shared by Sandokan (who killing a tiger with a knife and came out on top in his DuelToTheDeath with Suyodhana, to cite two of his feats) and Paddy O'Brien (the self-styled [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Demon of War]], a small and fattish MadScientist who invented [[DeathRay a ray to ignite the magazines of enemy warships]]. It takes a ''cannon shell to the face'' to kill him, and even then he has the time to complain for the destruction of the machine he just blew up an enemy ship with).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}: City of the Damned'' is so much this, [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} true to the source material]]. You have [[AmazonBrigade all-female]] [[DropTheHammer hammer-wielding]] [[WarriorMonk holy warriors]] [[ReligionIsMagic with supernatural powers]], conniving {{Ninja}} RatMen from a brutal empire under the earth, [[BodyHorror psychotic mutants]] and [[ReligionOfEvil deranged cultists]] who worship some ancient ''[[EldritchAbomination thing]]'' in a pit in the centre of the city, and a [[RagtagBunchofMisfits ragtag bunch of]] [[BadassNormal ordinary sellswords with nothing but discipline, gunpowder and sharpened steel]], all duking it out in a ruined city overrun by mutants, maniacs [[OurDemonsAreDifferent and worse]]. It truly is hell on earth, you need to be a badass just to survive a day, [[NintendoHard and even then not everyone is going to make it]].

*Probably the revamped C'hou in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' qualifies, given that there are over 20,000 outworlders who have been selected by the gods to help them overcome the Black Tower; 50,000 live-for-combat skahs; city guards who are tougher than a good percentage of the previous two groups; and some of the G'heddi'onians, like the wizards who rule the city of Daarthayu.
**Ironically, the four most powerful people on the planet (by a lot, actually) are [[BadassPacifist Badass Pacifists]] who only occasionally slide into (resolutely nonlethal) MartialPacifist territory.
