A world where a women woman gives birth via a messy C-section ''and then immediately leads the charge at Normandy on D-day''.D-Day''. A world where a hapless rookie sent on a suicide mission with no gear at all ends up becoming ''the'' greatest ProfessionalKiller in the world. A world where a mute female sniper and a man suffering from hallucinations can annihilate an entire Soviet tank division. A world where cyborgs get into fistfights with hulking, nanomachine-implanted senators. A world where Earth's biggest badasses are nothing more than extremely well-trained men and women with charisma, willpower and [[PunchPackingPistol a silenced pistol]] face some of the most dangerous things the world has to offer, and they ''always'' come out on top.

* With the frequent intermingling of gods of various pantheons and mortals in the series of Creator/RickRiordan's ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' and [[TheVerse the universe]] it shares with his [[Literature/TheKaneChronicles other]] [[Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard works]] you would be very hard pressed to find anyone who can say they aren't at least some form of badass. The main characters (usually demigods or magicians with various awesome powers) regularly fight and slay some of mythology's greatest monsters, and aren't afraid to tell the gods themselves where they can [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu stick it]] when their jerkassery and petty bickering gets too much. Even some [[BadassNormal completely normal]] humans without these abilities can claim to have done something crazy [[CrazyAwesome and/or]] awesome: such as a teenage girl throwing a plastic hairbrush at the ruler of the Titans, a [[PapaWolf dad]] strafing a mob of monsters in a Sopwith Camel after his daughter was kidnapped, or the title character's parents fighting monsters with a sword and a shotgun they ''literally just found'' not a few moments ago.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is set in Gensoukyou, 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.

It remains to be seen whether or not their planned invasion of Gensokyo will end in failure.

* The whole point of ''WebOriginal/BadassOfTheWeek''. Being a {{Badass}} is kind of a requirement for being featured. * Just about every rapper in ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' is a total {{Badass}}.

* ProfessionalWrestling itself is a world of badass. It takes a lot of body control and agility to jump the ten foot height from a turnbuckle to the floor, hit someone in such a way that they don't get hurt but still looks realistically painful, then hit the hard floor without breaking your neck. Many wrestlers are legitimately badass outside of the ring, and [[TooDumbToLive some people]] have found this out the hard way. Another aspect of this is the length wrestlers go through to keep {{kayfabe}}, keeping in character no matter what happens. Wrestlers have [[{{Determinator}} grit their teeth]] through [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction broken bones, concussions,]] generously bleeding injuries [[OnlyAFleshWound and more]] just to [[ICanStillFight keep the show going.]] More than once, a wrestler might not actually remember the actual match despite keeping character the entire way through, probably meaning ''they blacked out and were playing their character on reflex.''
