** And more prominently, the Winter Soldier. Pretty much the entire cast, both good and evil, is either starkly terrified of him, or, at the very least, regards him with a kind of wary respect. Pretty much every time he makes an appearance, he very much lives up to his rep.

After his HeelFaceTurn, he continues to live up to it (even more so, because he can actually think clearly now) and takes to exploiting this reputation [[TerrorHero when he needs an edge.]]

*** On the occasions when he gets his hands dirty, well, he dueled a PhysicalGod Dark Wizard to a standstill and defeated a HumanoidAbomination ''while multitasking.'' This, by the way, is on top of his normal job as Sorcerer Supreme, which job description basically entails scamming and/or beating up {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.

** Harry Potter/Thorson, meanwhile, has a rapidly growing reputation, partly because he is the Boy Who Lived, and partly because he is the Boy Who Continues To Live No Matter What Is Thrown At Him - no matter whether he's being attacked by Death Eaters, Basilisks, Dementors, Voldemort, the Disir, the Slendermen and HYDRA's Werewolves, Project Ultimatum, Daken, armies of HYDRA troops both muggle and magical, Gravemoss, the Elder God Chthon, Voldemort again, the Death Eaters again, [[spoiler: Sinister]], [[spoiler: Dudley a.k.a. the Blob/the Beast]], [[spoiler: Maddie Pryor/Rachel Grey]], the Red Room... one way or another, no matter how outclassed or outmatched he is, he'll come out the other side intact - and increasingly on top, as he gets stronger, more skilled and savvier. Which is generally more than can be said for whoever's gone up against him. Or whatever's left of them, anyway. After the incident with the Red Room, Draco Malfoy, who's been quietly, and with reasonable accuracy under the circumstances, deducing what's happened, flatly states that there are very few organisations he can think of capable of containing Harry, and they're mostly supernatural superpowers (like the White Council, pulling out all the stops, or one of the Fae Courts), and HYDRA at the very height of their powers are the only one he can think of that would be mad enough to actually try (he doesn't really know much about the Red Room). And none of that takes into account [[spoiler: the Phoenix.]]

** Harry Dresden, as per canon (see the Literature page), whose reputation is given a spectacular boost after his duel with Gravemoss under Paris, which ended with Dresden [[TakingYouWithMe unleashing his Death Curse]] in the form of a vast column of flame that jetted over a thousand feet into the air and launched Gravemoss from under to Paris to the North Sea, several ''hundred'' miles away. And, impossibly, he survived (well, to be exact, [[spoiler: Strange]] saved him). While Dresden sees himself as more of a BadassOnPaper, discussing the trope in his internal monologue, his rematch with Gravemoss during the Battle of London, which was caught on camera, and resulted in Dresden forcing Gravemoss - who is in the same weight class as freaking ''Loki'' - to run for his life, only burnishes that reputation.

to:

*** He also (see below) resurrected [[spoiler: Harry Dresden]], with the person in question later making it clear just how impressive this was. Resurrecting someone as a zombie is one thing. Grabbing someone's spirit and putting it back in their body so that they come back exactly the same as before? ''That'' takes incredible skill.

Oh, and he's [[spoiler: in line to be Sorcerer Supreme one day]], meaning that many feats of Memetic Badassery are yet to come.

** Doctor Stephen Strange. Lots of characters in various media are either TheArchmage or a MagnificentBastard. Strange is ''both.'' He plays ''every single character'' in the series like a harp, with the exception of [[spoiler: Sinister,]] because the latter is blocked from Strange's foresight, and even he can only do so much with the Endless - though he still seems to be able to get them to do pretty much what he wants. He even gets a mention in the [[{{Pantheon/Magic}} House of Magic]]. Oh, and he's a time traveller.

* The Lady Knight in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', a human woman (albeit immortal) who hasn't appeared on screen, but has cast a shadow of proceedings. She taught most of the major badasses in history how to fight. Cuchulainn? Taught him. The Argonauts? Taught most of them. RealLife badass William Marshal, the greatest knight? Taught him too. She even took Sif and Fandral under her wing and turned them into [[WarGod the Goddess of War]] and the [[MasterSwordsman finest swordsman in the Nine Realms with only Sif for a peer]] and one of the deadliest men in the entire universe. She was also the best of Arthur's court. Yes, even better than Lancelot. No one really knows anything about her, beyond the fact that she's epically badass, trapped on TheSlowPath and probably something of a HurtingHero by now - though she hasn't been seen since the 18th century.
