* ChuckNorrisFacts are possibly originated from Creator/ConanOBrien's near-nightly ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' skits on the former ''Series/LateNight'', where he would pull the '''''"Walker Texas Ranger Lever"''''' causing a clip of Chuck Norris to play doing something suitably badass... usually culminating in a roundhouse kick.

* In the same place, the green Silverhawk was the best - he could [[TimeTravel travel in time]].



* Some say he was in the pod that Superman came in, and that he's Chuck Norris' chauffeur. All we know is...[[TopGear he's called the Stig.]]
** Also from Richard Hammond's Opel Kaddett... Oliver
*** Looks like the Stig is so badass, he gets ''two'' listings on this page.



* To ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' fans (and the rest of the cast members) it's Creator/JamesMadio - who played Frank Perconte. Most of the cast members tell the same story of James Madio allegedly starting a massive BarBrawl in Soho, and somehow high-tailing it back to his hotel room before the police got there. This is in addition to other stories such as him biting Creator/NealMcDonough on the chest or defecating in everyone's trailers. The rest of the stories say he's quite the NiceGuy, merging this trope with AllLovingHero it seems.

* On ''Series/NashBridges'', an accountant for a Chinese triad (Barry Chen) tries to paint his boss (Bobby Wu) as one of these to the gangsters robbing him.
-->'''Barry:''' You don't wanna mess with Bobby Wu. I'm telling you, man. I once saw him take a guy's cajones and make Dim Sum out of them. I'm telling you, man. I once saw him take a guy's intestines and pull them out through his nostrils. I'm telling you, man.
-->'''Gangster:''' Shut up.

* No machine is safe from [[TheSarahConnorChronicles Cameron]]. She would have crushed Skynet singlehandedly, but she wants the humans to feel relevant.

** Klingons are a whole MemeticBadass species. They now have their own language, they have real opera's in Klingon, and some people even have Klingon weddings.
*** In-universe, legend holds that the Klingons murdered their own gods when they became more trouble than their worth.

* An in-universe example from TheWire: "[[MemeticMutation Omar comin'!]]" A man so memetically badass that when he walks by stash-houses unarmed, the dealers are so scared they surrender the drugs without a fight or even [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a threat]]. So legendary is [[BadassLongcoat Omar]] that when he [[spoiler: dies, the story of his murder inflates to a death-squad of mobsters with AK-47s because no one can beleive Omar was killed by a little kid with a pistol.]]

* According to the ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' fandom, no one is more of a BAMF than John "Three Continents" Watson, [[PintSizedPowerhouse tiny Afghan war veteran]] in a [[BadassAdorable cuddly jumper.]] Do not [[BerserkButton threaten]] [[HeterosexualLifePartner Sherlock]], or [[BewaretheNiceOnes he will]] ''end'' you.
