* [[TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] was the first fictional {{Badass}} that we know of. He is still one of the greatest, memetism aside. Among other things he killed the [[OurOgresAreHungrier Humbaba]], killed the [[EverythingsBetterWithCows Bull of Heaven]], carried around 600 pounds worth of swords and generally forged the idea of AuthorityEqualsAsskicking.

* In ClassicalMythology Hercules...uh...[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Heracles]]...uh...[[SeriousBusiness Herakles]] remains one of these even to this day. In myths he was often presented as the WorldsStrongestMan, defeating, among other foes, ''death himself'' on behalf of one of his friends and is commonly held as having invented wrestling as a formal sport. His name has entered into the English language as a byword for incredible feats of strength.
* You wouldn't think [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] would need to be a MemeticBadass. NativeAmericanMythology, specifically plains mythology, turns it into an EldritchAbomination with the power to make you go insane with just a look.
* [[CelticMythology Cu Chulainn]] will FUCK YOUR SHIT UP. In the battle he died in he tied himself to a rock with his own intestines so he could remain upright and ''continue fighting''.

* NorseMythology is chock full of these, but of course the most well known, and therefore memetic, would have to be '''Odin''' and '''Thor'''.

** DavyCrockett used to kill a hundred bears each morning for breakfast, then go and kill a few dozen panthers for a snack. He could wrestle comets, wade the Mississippi, whip his weight in wildcats, stare most any critter to death, and shoot a baby gnat from two hundred miles on a foggy day with his eyes closed and holding his rifle with his feet.

** There is no doubt at all that the original Welsh tradition about Arthur featured him as this. He had the nickname [[TheMagnificent the. Red Ravager of Britain]] and he did all his own dirty work originally. In fact, the earliest mention of him uses him as a measuring stick for other badasses. And they're all found wanting.
