* A slightly unorthodox, yet hilarious, non-lethal example: in December 2013, a man named Andrew Frey walked into a tavern outside of Salem, Oregon, high on methamphetamine, and proceeded to masturbate in the middle of the bar. Police were called to respond, and [[http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2013/12/alleged_masturbating_man_in_sa.html it ultimately took 15 cops from three different agencies and multiple hits from a Taser to bring him down]]--''while he was still masturbating.'' Frey woke up the following morning in the Marion County jail with absolutely no memory of the incident.

** This really doesn't do him justice. He took fire from 32 machine guns and slaughtered twenty of them before they gave up.
** And they surrendered because he's an ''American''. To quote, Germans at that times often thinks that Americans are the sissy ones compared to British gentlemen. So it was basically like: "If the Americans are like this, then how about the British? Fuck it, I'm outta here!"
** [[ReluctantWarrior And he was a pacifist]].

** [[ReluctantWarrior And he was a pacifist]].pacifist]] that went back to the battlefield [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming to pray for both his dead comrades and the Germans he'd killed]].
--> I prayed for the Germans too. They were all brother men of mine.

* An unidentified fugitive known under the pseudonym, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Johnson_(criminal) Albert Johnson]], survived three shootouts against multiple people on his own. One against 4 police officers that attempted to arrest him. The second shootout was against a posse of 9 men armed with dynamite, and 42 hunting dogs. The third shootout was against a larger posse, this time costing the life of Constable Edgar Millen. Albert Johnson was finally killed a month later from a shot to the pelvis as he attempted to cross a river bank.

** Ironically, the bomber didn't really kill that many of the fighters (One Dinah and atleast 3 of the Zeros), but, what makes her famous is that the ''ENTIRE'' crew got at least the Distinguished Flying Cross, while the Pilot (Jay Zeemer), and the Bombardier (Joe Sarnoski) were both awarded the Medal of Honor [[note]] Joe Sarnoski's was posthumous [[/note]].

* MiyamotoMusashi gained his reputation after pulling one of these on the entire Yoshioka school. After he beat its two heirs in one-on-one combat, the entire school attacked him with bowmen, gunmen and swords. Musashi ambushed them, killed their figurehead leader and got away.

* William Marshall definitely qualifies and is one of the most BadAss of people ever. A medieval knight with a record of 500 tournaments with no losses (and these were in the 12th-13th centuries before full-plate, when they were extremely dangerous), he had such a great reputation that other fighters used to gang-up on him to try to take him down. He was once so battered that they had to delay the award ceremony while a blacksmith hammered his helmet back into shape so he could get it off. Not only was he a brilliant tourney fighter, but also a great battlefield leader and warrior. At the age of 75, he led the charge at the Battle of Lincoln and personally killed the Count of Perche, the French leader and a man some 40 years his junior.

* Besides UsefulNotes/SimoHayha, there was Igor Sigorenko, who had about 500 confirmed kills, the most of any soldier on the Allied side. Noah Adamia is worth noting, in that he was the most prolific sniper (with about 300 kills) to actually die in battle.
