* The entire world, including the primary setting of Seoul, became this in ''AgentsOfMayhem'' after an in-universe event known as "Devil's Night". Even the movie stars, fashion models, and football players became badass real quickly, if they weren't already!

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', even the lowliest, non military NPC you come across will generally have as many hit points as the big, tough monsters you fight, and be able to dish out nearly as much damage as said monsters just with his bare fists.
** Pretty much ''any'' named character who's done something relevant is likely to be a badass -- such as Illidan, Malfurion, Tyrande, Jaina, Thrall, Arthas, Uther, Varian, Fandral, Archimonde, Kil'jaeden, Medivh, Maeiv...
** The Majority of the population's equivalent of Blue-collar workers jobs are ''killing hundreds of things in various ways'' every day. The equivalent of an upper class regularly head to the most dangerous part of the world and gather various resources there, while killing everyone near said reagent.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'' series is this by default: With human life on Earth destroyed following the Apocalypse, the only remaining beings are superhumans fighting among themselves in the ruined remains, meaning you have to be a badass to survive. The main protagonists are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who belong to an ancient ProudWarriorRace that they [[OneManArmy singlehandedly destroyed]] in order to [[DefectorFromDecadence protect all of creation]]. By themselves, they are phenomenally powerful warriors that can make short work of anything that crosses their path. Together? They are a force capable of rivaling Heaven and Hell. Angels and demons themselves are fairly badass, with the former using advanced futuristic technology while the latter employs {{eldritch abomination}}s alongside the legions of Hell (although they are fairly easily cut down by the protagonists). Outside of Earth, other forms of life exist and all of them are comparatively superior to humanity in one way or another. Really you could count the number of non-combatants in your hand and some would still have traits that makes them awesome such as the Makers (giants with the reputation of builders and smiths, but still have super strength and can go toe-to-toe against a Horseman in a single duel.

If the main protagonist of a World of Badass has a {{Love Interest|s}}, expect them to become (or, in some cases, start out as) a BattleCouple. If they have kids, it's [[PapaWolf best to avoid]] [[MamaBear messing with said kids]]. [[BadassFamily In fact,]] [[BadassAdorable the kids may well be able to take care of themselves.]]

* ''LightNovel/BenTo'', full stop. It helps that every single character is pretty much MadeOfIron, otherwise they'd all be in traction.

* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', also know as "[[RefugeInAudacity Epic]] [[RatedMForManly Manly]] badassery: The Video Game Series". Its HGame parody, ''VideoGame/SengokuRance'', basically is the same formula, just with a different gameplay engine and tons of estrogen due to massive amounts of GenderFlip (though none of the women are less badass as a result).

** The three Billy Goats Gruff [[spoiler: [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot carry submachine guns]]]]. The oldest of them took down three members of the Senior Council.



** And then there's the White Council of Wizards. They range from pretty dangerous under the right circumstances all the way up to PersonOfMassDestruction/OneManArmy. Oh, and pretty much every one of them is both a CombatPragmatist and a {{Determinator}}.



* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}''. There are vicious, the [[HumanoidAbomination Makuta]], the brain washing bohrak, a sleeping god, corrupt politicians, and [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking freaky looking vehicles]]. To deal with it, they have Toa warriors. Hell. Yes.

To deal with it, they have Toa warriors.warriors, who have an [[ElementalPowers an elemental power]], a CoolMask with another power, and at least one weapon. Hell. Yes. Oh, and pretty much every character has been around for centuries, if not millennia. Some of them (and all the Glatorian) [[OldMaster are over 100,000 years old.]]
** Then, of course, you have the Order of Mata Nui, a secret organization of badasses dedicated to protecting the Universe and occasionally doing the dirty work; the Brotherhood of Makuta, led by the above-mentioned [[AnimatedArmor beings]] who've won the SuperpowerLottery [[TheNeedless and don't need to worry about little things like sleep and food]]; [[TheDreaded the Dark Hunters,]] a bunch of thieves and killers for hire...it says a lot when some of the ''least'' badass characters are only BadassNormal.

* From [[Creator/JimButcher the creator]] of the above-mentioned ''Dresden Files'' is ''Literature/CodexAlera''. The humans are descendants of a Roman legion who '''all''' have ElementalPowers. (The [[TheCallPutMeOnHold one exception]] is [[BadassNormal way, way more awesome than most of them could ever hope to be]]) They share the place with Neanderthal-elves that [[BondCreatures bond with]] giant ground sloths and terror birds, telepathic yetis, 8-foot-tall centuries-old {{wolfm|an}}en with BloodMagic, and [[strike:[[{{Starcraft}} the Zerg]]]] the Vord, a HordeOfAlienLocusts led by a {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le [[LightningBruiser juggernaut]] of a HiveQueen. Other denizens include nature spirits that start to resemble {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and sea monsters that are about forty feet long as ''infants'' and tend to eat anything that comes close. Even the ''accountants'' can kick your ass.

** Also, a fair number of characters are Asgardians (including Harry - long story short, Thor was incarnated as James Potter), who come from a world with EverythingTryingToKillYou. While humans are noted to [[HumansAreSurvivors evolved for survival]], Asgardians are explicitly stated to have [[GodOfWar evolved for war]].

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'', where everyone is a hard-boiled double agent who may or may not have supernatural abilities. A world where a woman gives birth via a messy C-section ''and then immediately leads the charge at Normandy on 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.
