* [[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]].

Oh, and a giant fire-breathing dragon.

** This is actually an AuthorTract of Emilio Salgari, with ''Sandokan'' merely being the one to stand out the most for the sheer quantity of badass ''named'' characters (the science-fiction novel ''Le Meraviglie del Duemila'' has loads of ''unnamed'' characters that fly through the world in airships carrying what amounts to small ''nukes'').

* 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 one 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).
* 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.

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.
