** SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]]. ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'' helps here, where the guy goes {{Determinator}} to a ridiculous degree and fights enemies ten times larger than himself, but generally, fans like to see Bowser as damn near impossible to kill and super determined regardless. After all, he survives black holes!

* Agent 47 ''will'' hunt you down if someone pays him enough. Nobody will even notice it while he does it, and he could be anywhere, adjusting his sniper scope or taking your food order; You wont outrun the VideoGame/{{Hitman}}.

* In ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'' the minor Norscan lord Surtha Ek became known throughout the fandom as an invincible chariot commander due to the AI's tendency to recruit huge numbers of chariots and its ability to apply perfect micromanagement to all of them, erasing the unit's only real weakness. Indeed Surtha Ek became so associated with this meme that when Creative Assembly fixed it Surtha Ek was given access to a chariot mount at level 1 and a pair of chariots in his starting army even though he's not a playable character.

* Gaenor, from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has recently become a Memetic Badass among the community, as seen [[http://www.bethsoft.com/bgsforums/index.php?showtopic=840779 here]].
** The Nerevarine himself would probably get more of this (s/he killed at least ''two'' gods, and an avatar of a third. Bad stuff didn't start happening to Morrowind until the Nerevarine was rumoured to have gone away to ''another continent'') if the game itself didn't fully acknowledge it by having you declared Hortator (war-leader) of three-houses, with the armies you are intended to lead consisting of [[OneManArmy yourself and maybe a companion]].
* The Nord hero Ysgramor is one of these in-universe in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. In Windhelm, there's a museum of oddities which includes Ysgramor's soup spoon. It's a fork. You think no-one could eat soup with a fork? You, my friend, did not know Ysgramor.
** Lydia, the Whiterun Huskarl.
** Giants get this treatment due to a GoodBadBug that [[MegatonPunch sends the player flying hundreds of feet into the air]] if they get killed by one.[[note]] This happens because any damage that is left over after something is killed is translated into velocity. When a giant swings his hammer downwards onto a level 2 Dragonborn with light armor, the Dragonborn accelerates into the ground so hard ''they bounce off the ground into space.''
** Not to mention the Dragonborn him/herself. Not surprising considering that he/she kills dragons on a regular basis, fuckstomps armies, sends people flying by shouting at them, and can potentially [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu flip off]] and [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu rip off]] not just one, but ''several'' Daedric Princes over the course of the game.
** Miraak another Dragonborn, when he says he could've taken on Alduin who is the Nordic God of Destruction, World-Eater, Devourer of Souls and Harbinger of the Apocalypse, he isn't exaggerating.
** Vahlok is one of these in-universe as well, Miraak has lots of badass traits. but Vahlok is the one who beat him - Miraak only escaped being killed because Herma-Mora snatched him out of Nirn. The Skaal remember him as a heroic figure called "The Guardian" because of it.

to:

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'':
*** [[PlayerCharacter The Nerevarine]] kills [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu at least two gods (and the aspect of a third)]], is TheAgeless, and bad stuff doesn't start happening to Morrowind until after the Nerevarine was rumored to have gone away to ''another continent''. However, the game itself pretty much acknowledges it by having the Nerevarine declared Hortator (war-leader) of three [[TheClan Great Houses]], with the armies you are intended to lead consisting of [[OneManArmy yourself and maybe a companion]].

* According to DanielRemar, Youtube user Reallyjoel's dad is the best gamer to have ever lived. There used to be a difficulty level suited to his skill, but he beat it so hard it ceased to exist.

Added DiffLines:

** Teba from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' joined the group because, similar to Admiral Dane below, he also is one of the few to swear in a Nintendo game.

* Pablo Sanchez of ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Baseball]]''. If you look on youtube for the comments on any video about the best player in the game (the video makers' opinions range from Maria Luna to Nomar), there will always be comments about Pablo as a Badass, mostly because [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench he speaks Spanish]]. [[spoiler: [[EasterEgg Though he really doesn't.]]]]

* The Rock is the deadliest enemy you will encounter in ''AgarestSenki''. It's so deadly, that the BigBad of the game couldn't win against the party without the help of one Boulder itself.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' has a faceless, nameless NPC that the fandom calls the 3-13 Archer. Has been called the best character in the game. Has had fanfics devoted to him. Is known for having entire strategies revolving around him.
** Statistically, he is considerably worse than your player characters, being only midway through his second tier, with average stats at best for said tier. This does not explain how he manages to instantly kill a tiger laguz every turn whilst taking no damage. It is the great mystery of ''Radiant Dawn''.

*** His status as a badass is no exaggeration. In the span of [[LongRunners 20 years]], [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 he's]] [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles taken]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4 down]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD countless]] [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure robotic armies]], [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 government military forces]], [[SonicAndTheSecretRings an evil genie]], [[VideoGame/SonicAndTheBlackKnight an evil version of King Arthur]], [[VideoGame/SonicColors extra terrestrial]] {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, ''extra dimensional {{Eldritch Abomination}}s,'' [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog living weapons of mass destruction]], [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries dimension-traveling antagonists]], the PolygonCeiling, and ''[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Physical]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Gods]].'' [[spoiler: One of which, the God of Destruction, he took out ''[[VideoGame/SonicGenerations WITHOUT his super mode]]'']]. To many protagonists, this would be a lifetime adventure. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday To Sonic, this is just another day for him.]]

** That last paragraph was just for his BloonsTowerDefense appearences. VideoGame/{{Bloons Super Monkey}} makes him out to be Ninja Kiwi's most badass character. His powers include spiked balls that turn into bursts of darts when they strike bloons, [[WhipItGood whips]] made of plasma, a beam of pure bloon destruction, an octuplet of glaives that rotate around him & ''an entire fiesta-full of others''.
