* Rahm Emanuel, former Obama administration chief-of-staff, American political operative of legendary action and [[ClusterFBomb even more legendary language]], current mayor of UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}, whom the news media, every other political operative in Washington, and Obama himself are incapable of ''not'' telling Chuck Norris-style jokes about. The man was nicknamed "The Enforcer" when he worked for Clinton, and once [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome sent Illinois governor Bruce Rauner a dead fish in the mail]]. They don't call him "Rahmbo" for nothing.

* Voice actors Creator/FrankWelker and Creator/BradSwaile.

to:

* Voice actors Creator/FrankWelker Creator/FrankWelker, an iconic voice actor. Some of his claims to fame include just how long he's been at it--his first acting job was as Fred in the original ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' cartoon, and Creator/BradSwaile.he's still playing that same role 50 years later, as well as having taken over the role of Scooby himself in 2002. What he's best known for is probably his uncanny ability to flawlessly imitate any animal sound. For several years, this skill-set had Welker at number one on a ranking of the highest box-office returns of any actor, on the technicality that his vocal effects have appeared in nearly every movie ever made. Such is Welker's reputation that many sources, such as the IMDB or ThisVeryWiki, will attribute him as the voice of just about ''any'' character who makes non-human noises, and even some that don't make any noise at all. Rule of thumb, if he's not actually in the credits, he probably didn't do it, but it doesn't help that he occasionally ''gets credited'' for doing vocal effects that were actually done by real animals. A lot of people, even those who put credits together, simply refuse to believe that animal and monster sounds can come from anywhere else but Frank Welker's pipes.
** The only animal/monster vocal effects which ''aren't'' erroneously credited to Frank Welker are those that are confirmed to be done by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker, who has the same uncanny skillset. If the creature effects, on par with Welker's, haven't made Baker a memetic badass, the faces he pulls while doing them certainly have.
* Another voice actor example: Creator/BradSwaile. Playing [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] will do that.

* The blue whale. It's the largest animal on Earth right now and probably ever (it hasn't been conclusively proven that ''Argentinosaurus'' was bigger), and people have come up with some rather ChuckNorrisFacts-esque tall tales about exactly ''how'' big it is. The most widespread of these is that it can exceed 100 feet in length--this is ''probably'' true, but has never been proven. Per ThatOtherWiki, other badass memes about the blue whale is that a human can swim through its arteries, that its heartbeat can be heard 19 miles away, and that [[GagPenis it has a 16-foot penis]]. Admit it, until just now you thought all those things were actually true.

* UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson. If Teddy Roosevelt is the Lawful Good BadAss among Presidents, Jackson is the Lawful Get-The-Hell-Out-Of-My-Way badass.

** He's not well known as a BadAss because he was so much of a BadAss that you can't make jokes about him, because anything you could think of as a joke, he really did. And then he'd punch you in the nuts with a burning tank. Seriously, just go read his entry on TheOtherWiki, the guy is a real-life {{Wolverine}}.

* Creator/BruceLee. Unlike those guys who need "facts" to try to back up their {{Badass}} credentials, Bruce Lee needs none of those for people to recognize his awesome.

* Also on the WW2 front, Otto Skorzeny, due less to his real life accomplishments, standard military {{Badass}} though they may be, and more to embellishments using comic book and movie portrayals as being equally historically accurate, on Norris-y themed history threads. The scars certainly didn't hurt the manliness factor none. On the strategic side, Manstein and Patton also receive this treatment, while Russians are depicted as wishing to be this, but also fearing Stalin's reputed paranoia and deciding costly PyrrhicVictory and near-failure is a better option than being assassinated for appearing more competent than the Iron Man of Russia.

* Skanderbeg, the Albanian Hero, earned numerous {{Badass}} rumors about him within his own lifetime, told by his own soldiers. Among them, he was said to have killed 3,000 Ottomans by himself, he never slept more than five hours at night and could cut two men asunder with a single stroke of his scimitar, cut through iron helmets, kill a wild boar with a single stroke, and cleave the head off a buffalo with another.
* Kevin Vickers, Sergeant-at-Arms of the Canadian House of Commons, is quickly gaining a reputation as a mace-swinging, terrorist-killing {{Badass}}, thanks to his swift dispatch of murderer Michael Zebaf-Bibeau.
