* Jim Valentino's ''ComicBook/{{Normalman}}'' features the planet Levram, where ''everyone'' has super powers. Everyone, that is, except the eponymous character normalman. And as the series progresses he gets increasingly badass [[BadassNormal without ever gaining super powers.]]

**For extra fun, consider the physiology of the Krogan- This was a race that had to be hostile-genetically-engineered so that only one-tenth of a percent of their children survived, and they have wide-set eyes, a prey-type evolution.

* ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' took this trope a bit further; it's not just one world anymore. There exist ''six worlds of badasses'' and all of them include a lot of badass people both heroes and villains (Earth, Phantom World, Hell, Alternate Earth, EndlessFrontier, and the different star systems in the future).

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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is set in Gensokyo, a realm that has become the nexus of the planet's magic and badass. 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.]]

* 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.
