* The Portuguese have two especially notable Badasses to look up to: Viriathus and Luís de Camões.
** Viriathus was a Lusitanian [[FromNobodyToNightmare shepherd]] who, when the Romans invaded, rallied up some local men[[note]] None of whom were soldiers, by the way. [[/note]] and not only halted the Romans but also ''BEAT THEM BACK!'' He also remains undefeated to this day, having been killed in his camp while asleep. Also of note, it took ''three'' traitors to do him in.
** Meanwhile, Luís de Camões was a poet who composed an Epic counting the deeds and accomplishments of the Portuguese people. All while being [[EyepatchOfPower blinded in one eye]]. He also wrote much of it on his way to India to basically brag to the local king. When his ship sank, he swam to help ''with the unfinished book in one hand'' to prevent it from getting wet.
*** In fact, Portugal Day is also known as Day of Camões.
