** 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]], {{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.

** ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'' reveals [[spoiler:he is singlehandedly responsible for Harry's victory over Voldemort]]. Make of that what you will.

*** Vimes once prevented a war by ''[[BeyondTheImpossible arresting the entirety of both armies]]'' on the grounds that preparing for war is "[[ExactWords likely to cause a breach of the peace]]" plus [[ListOfTransgressions a veritable laundry list of other, technically valid criminal charges]].

** Likewise, Granny Weatherwax's {{Badass}} status, in ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Witches Abroad]]'', is such that even the ''narrator'' dismisses the possibility that she might've been shaken up by seeing [[spoiler: her long-lost, long-hated sister Lily]] in a mirror. Even though that's exactly how she's behaving!

** As a matter of fact, Neville's so {{Badass}}, he gets put in the RealLife category, so go check there.

** He is physically immune to being made into a memetic badass. Why? Because no matter ''how'' BadAss you think he is, he ''actually is'' twice as BadAss.

** Leto II was badass enough to actually become a Sandworm. You know, that monster that is cameod in every game that has a desert level. The only thing that could kill him was water. According to his own plan. It could even be argued that Leto II is more {{Badass}} than Paul, since he accepted the Golden Path whereas his father was terrified by it.

* The 'titled' pilots in ''Literature/StoneKing'' are in-universe examples. Subverted in that while all are at least competent titan pilots, none of them are anywhere near as {{Badass}} as they are generally believed to be.

* Begbie of ''{{Trainspotting}}''. DeconstructedTrope: His mates build a mythos around him about what a psychopathic {{badass}} he is. This causes him to believe his own hype, and makes his immoral behaviour even worse. Which isn't helped by his already-existing mental illness.

* The original Literature/JamesBond is a brutal, fairly politically incorrect and cold-blooded ProfessionalKiller. Yet, he still saves the world on a daily basis, [[Literature/LiveAndLetDie burns entire criminal organizations to the ground]], made [[Literature/{{Thunderball}} SPECTRE]] and [[Literature/FromRussiaWithLove SMERSH]] crap their pants, takes on entire private armies [[OneManArmy by himself]], [[Literature/DrNo fights a giant squid and wins]], is one of the scariest hitmen in fictional history, will [[Literature/CasinoRoyale win]] every single card game even when [[Literature/{{Moonraker}} drunk and drugged]], [[Literature/DiamondsAreForever gives crime lords spectacular deaths]] and is strong enough to [[Literature/{{Goldfinger}} stab a whole plane window]] hard enough to shatter. Plus, no matter what happens to him, his body simply ''refuses to die.'' By the time of ''Literature/FromRussiaWithLove'', he's considered to be one of the most dangerous threats to SMERSH and a hero to everyone in MI6...and that's only ''five'' books in.
