* [[Series/GameOfThrones Tyrion Lannister]] has become the audience favorite of the show, and eventually started receiving this treatment. Slight aversion however, as it's not for his fighting prowess or manliness, but what a ''legendary'' smooth talker and bullshitter he is.
** [[Creator/CharlesDance Tywin Lannister]] can cure dyslexia through [[ImplacableMan sheer persistence]]. He also gives bollockings to an AxCrazy who's [[TheBigGuy nearly a foot taller than him]]. In addition, he is [[SurroundedByIdiots singlehandedly]] waging a war with in-universe MemeticBadass Robb Stark.
*** As is [[LittleMissBadass Arya Stark]], who is able to answer back and hold her own in a DeathGlare contest with the aforementioned Tywin. She's ''twelve''.
** Jaime Lannister is an in-universe example of this, at least until he got beaten by Robb Stark, which (as mentioned,) got Stark his own reputation as this.
** Stannis the Mannis. A sizeable portion of the fandom loves him for his actions during the episode "Blackwater". Said actions include a brief yet awesomely effective pre-invasion speech to his men ("Come with me and take this city!"), being the first to storm the beach and the first to breach the city walls. Further compounding his badassery, Stannis had to be dragged away from the battle by his men when enemy reinforcements showed up. Scenes such as him [[spoiler:defeating a much larger Wildling army also help.]]

* [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny The champion stood, the rest saw their better]]: [[MisterRogersNeighborhood Mr. Rogers in a bloodstained sweater]]. (To clarify: the filk band Lemon Demon was playing off of a long-running [[http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/mrrogers.asp urban legend]] about Mr. Rogers supposedly having been a Navy [=SEAL=].)

*** Amusingly, in the ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'' episode "Relics," Scotty admits to [[ForcedMeme forcing this meme]] himself by routinely overestimating his repair times so he could reliably get the work done ahead of schedule. Kirk, to his credit, ''did'' call him on it a couple of times in the TOS-era, but Scotty blatantly admits it to fellow engineer Geordie LaForge. He also, apparently, wrote lower-than-necessary safety standards for starship equipment; presumably for similar reasons.

* You either want [[Series/LifeOnMars2006 Gene]] [[AshesToAshes Hunt]] or you want to be [[MagnificentBastard him]]. Even ''puppets'' are afraid of him.

** Also, in a more unusual example, Xander. By any RealLife standards, Xander is BadAss simply by merit of the fact that he's still alive after ''seven years'' of fighting the Good Fight (or more, depending on whether you count the Season 8 comics as canon). In many a FanFic, this is taken UpToEleven, and Xander effectively becomes the merciless god of his universe.

* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Richard Alpert]] from ''Series/{{Lost}}''. Most cite his "beginning in badassery" to the episode "[=LaFleur=]", where Richard simply walks into the DHARMA Barracks compound, holding a torch, which he then slams into the ground and sits on a bench as if he owns the place. Not to mention the sonic death fence that surrounds the Barracks, which apparently doesn't harm him. Because he's Richard Alpert.
** The television forum on Website/GameFAQs has taken this meme a step further by actually developing a fake episode called "Wrestling With Angels," which is a four hour long episode in which Richard does everything from sword duel with Jacob over a volcano to having a threesome with Kate and Juliet. There even exists a Youtube video in which the chateau fight scene from ''[[Film/TheMatrix The Matrix Reloaded]]'' is edited to feature Richard fighting off various ''Lost'' characters.
