* Starting with [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/chrysalis-20-4/#comment-15429 this comment to Chapter 20.4]] of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the protagonist Skitter -- a [[TheMinionMaster bug-controlling supervillain]] -- is given the full Website/ChuckNorrisFacts treatment.
-->'''Dues:''' In Brockton Bay arachnophobia is no longer a recognized medical condition. Instead there are several new conditions for people who are not yet deathly afraid of bugs.
*** There used to be a street called Skitter, but it had to be changed because nobody crosses Skitter and lives.
** It's telling that the Skitter facts section of the [[{{Memes/Worm}} Worm memes page]] is longer than the rest of the page, and that around half of the Skitter facts are things that actually happened.
** In one of the final [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/11/02/teneral-e-1/#comments chapters]], Doctor Yamada (a BadassNormal therapist who helps to stabilize many parahumans' sanity) also became this.
-->'''Veloren:''' Doctor Yamada is a reverse eldritch horror. Exposure to her gives sanity points.

** So there's this minor character, Esteban. He's one of the most effective assassins of a race of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire monsters]]. When he sees Harry Dresden, he ScreamsLikeALittleGirl and runs for his life.

**** Vetinari successfully defends a moving train (with "frightening efficiency") against multiple opponents while armed with only a SHOVEL, having previously beaten every single Stoker (who are themselves pretty hardened fighters) in friendly sparring matches during his spare time. Not to mention the time he defeated a bunch of cultists trying to assassinate him by defenestrating and subsequently "refenestrating" them. Unless you have the advantage of creating momentary confusion by presenting him with a man who coincidentally happens to look exactly like him, you do not want to mess with him.

* According to fans of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', no one can survive a verbal confrontation from the mistress of all {{Deadpan Snarker}}s, Elizabeth Bennet. She'll rip you to shreds and you'll thank her for the honor.

* The ''Literature/AxisOfTime'' trilogy turns [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishRoyalFamily Prince Harry]] into one. After being among those accidentally sent into the middle of WorldWarTwo, he personally forms the SAS early in order to conduct raids into German-held territory and even saves Churchill from an assassination attempt by Otto Skorzeny (a RealLife example of this trope). At the end of the trilogy, it's off-handedly mentioned that Harry choked Skorzeny to death. That's right, he's so badass that him killing another badass in hand-to-hand combat doesn't even get a description.

** Jaime Lannister, an in-story memetic badass of the series, also became a fandom memetic badass in Suvudu.com's "cage matches." The site pit 32 fictional characters against each other in one-on-one fights to the finish. Due to reader votes, Jaime Lannister defeated [[Literature/HarryPotter Hermione Granger]], [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]], Literature/{{Temeraire}}, and [[TheNameOfTheWind Kvothe]] in spite of being so obviously overmatched due being an otherwise normal human lacking any magical ability and [[spoiler:his sword hand]]. Rising backlash over his success ultimately caused him to lose to [[TheWheelOfTime Rand al'Thor]] in the final round, though George R. R. Martin did pen a very good [[http://grrm.livejournal.com/147038.html short story]] on how he believes the duel should go, which manages to pay tribute to his late friend's work as well as examine the fundamental differences in their worlds.

* Kyle Katarn is the ''Star Wars'' equivalent of Chuck Norris, complete with the requisite jokes. "Kyle Katarn didn't believe in the Force. The Force believed in Kyle Katarn." "Kyle Katarn has a rancor in his house. It's not dead, just too scared to move."
