* Creator/NoamChomsky's been qouted more than anyone
* AVeryPotterMusical has made ZacEfron a MemeticBadass on a smaller scale. Ask any AVPM fan, even ones who hated him before they watched AVPM, and they'll tell you all about what a charismatic humanitarian he is.

* [[UsefulNotes/IceHockey Chicago Blackhawks]] rookie Andrew Shaw reached this status within DAYS of getting called up from the AHL after a fight 2 seconds into his first shift and 5 goals in his first 9 games. [[{{Twitter}} #ShawFacts]] quickly [[AscendedMeme ascended]] and now [[Website/ChuckNorrisFacts Chuck Norris]] wears Andrew Shaw pajamas.

* [[AttentionWhore ZLATAN]]. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis IBRAHIMOVIC]]. Any Football forum or comments section will have at least one post dedicated to the (fictional) Chuck Norris-esque feats of everyone's favorite Swedish Egomaniac Footballer. Then again, [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/01/29/zlatan-ibrahimovic-the-20-most-ridiculous-things-he-has-ever-sai/ his real-life quotes are pretty outrageous as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Romelu Lukaku and Emmanuel Emenike have the "strong man"/"tank" reputation among FIFA players. Bonus points for them being skilled in RealLife.

Added DiffLines:

** To Americans, [[BadassBeard Tim Howard]] has this reputation (Everton fans think otherwise). David De Gea is also treated this way by Manchester United fans (and many Spanish fans). Generally, any goalkeeper who makes impossible or breathtaking saves will be considered a MemeticBadass by his team's fans.

** And now he has [[http://zlaaatan.com his own Search Engine. ]]
* Similar to Zlatan, "World's Strongest Player" Adebayo Akinfenwa has this reputation. Though this is mostly credited to his [[TheBigGuy monstrous frame]] rather than his footballing ability.
* Brian Scalabrine was [[http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1047970-the-white-mamba-what-makes-people-love-brian-scalabrine humorously seen as the best player in the NBA]], despite the fact that he rode the bench throughout his career. That hasn't stopped people from considering him "The White Mamba" (a reference to Kobe Bryant's "Black Mamba" nickname) and "the G.O.A.T.".
** A similar thing has happened to footballing benchwarmer/Arsenal flop Nicklas Bendtner a.k.a. "Lord Bendtner".
** The Filipino version of Brian Scalabrine is [[https://babyoilbrigade.wordpress.com/2013/04/21/jerwin-gaco-is-the-pbas-brian-scalabrine-and-this-is-a-good-thing/ Jerwin Gaco]].

* UsefulNotes/SimoHayha is generally considered the greatest killing machine in the history of the human race. The scary part is that ''[[OneManArmy this is entirely justified.]]'' He's estimated to have killed over an average of 7 Russian soldiers every day for almost one hundred days until he was shot in the face by a high-powered rifle in the last week of the war. Simo Häyhä survived because he's Simo Häyhä. And made a full recovery, living to the age of 96. One could say [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas he's the freakin' courier,]] but that would imply the latter is cooler, so it's the other way around instead.

The scary part is that ''[[OneManArmy this is entirely justified.]]'' He's estimated to have killed over an average of 7 seven Russian soldiers every day for almost one hundred days until he days, with almost 750 confirmed kills to his name. The Russians eventually gave him the nickname "[[RedBaron The White Death]]." He was shot in the face by a high-powered rifle with an explosive round meant to kill a ''tank'' in the last week of the war. Simo Häyhä survived because he's Simo Häyhä.Häyhä, killed the guy who shot him, and walked to a field hospital before passing out. And made a full recovery, living to the age of 96. He's become something of a folk hero in his home country of Finland, in the same vein as Davy Crockett in the United States. One could say [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas he's the freakin' courier,]] but that would imply the latter is cooler, so it's the other way around instead.instead.
** Heavy metal band Music/{{Sabaton}} made a song in his honor, appropriately titled "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLTpKs2ylP4 White Death]]".



** After being shot in the face, he grabbed his own gun and killed his attacker before passing out.



** And he wasn't shot in the face with a normal round, no. He was shot in the face with an explosive round which would've killed another person if it as much as hit their chest.
*** Please note: As unbelievable and as [[MemeticMutation "Chuck Norris Facts"]] as these things sound, they actually happened. The Russians sent counter-snipers against him, he sniped them. The Russians used artillery strikes against him, he just kept sniping. The Russians tried carpet-bombing him and basically marching so many men forward he couldn't kill them all. He killed them all.
