** Even a {{Badass}} like [[spoiler: Chayton isn't immune to guns. Turns out, you can't just bounce back from untreated gunshot wounds. By the time we see him after he makes his escape, he's in pretty bad shape and needs to be nursed back to health. And when Lucas confronts an unarmed Chayton with a shotgun, the winner was clear from the start.]]

* {{Retcon}}: Of the {{Revision}} variety. The first season heavily implied that while already being a master thief, Lucas only became the MadeOfIron {{Badass}} seen on the show after TakingALevelInBadass while in prison. But starting on season 3 it is revealed that [[spoiler:he was in the military and then in a covert Black Ops unit long before even meeting Job or Rabbit]].

* {{Badass}}:
** Lucas functions as a OneManArmy, often taking down several men by himself. Actually managed to beat up [[spoiler: an MMA prize fighter to the point of ''crippling'' him and ending his career.]]
** Proctor also deserves mention. [[spoiler: He was able to give Lucas a run for his money in their fight with each other.]]
** Chayton may possibly be the biggest {{Badass}} of the show (which is saying a lot). It takes the entire police force (armed with tasers) just to take him down.
** Col. Douglas Stowe is a formidable fighter, even giving Carrie and Lucas a run for their money in hand to hand combat.
** BadassBystander: [[spoiler:Deva's friend]] temporarily incapacitates a hardcore killer.
** BadassFamily: [[spoiler:The Hopwell]] parents team up to give a spectacular beating to some young delinquents in Season 3. Not only it's a rare scene of them fighting together but [[spoiler:Gordon]] holds his own surprisingly well against a much younger armed opponent.

** Mind you, having [[spoiler: Kai Proctor, the guy he'd spent three seasons trying to bring down,]] as his boss probably has something to do with it.

''Banshee'' is a crime drama on Creator/{{Cinemax}} which premiered on January 11, 2013. It's known for some spectacularly violent fight scenes, and its signature noir/pulp feel.

In the series, Antony Starr stars as a NoNameGiven master thief who recently got released from prison after a 15 year sentence for stealing $10 million in diamonds. As soon as he is released he goes looking for Anastasia (Ivana Miličević), his lover and accomplice who was able to elude the police and got away with the diamonds. The catch though, is that he and Ana where both working for the Ukrainian mob, so not only did they steal the diamonds from their owners, but they also tried to steal them out from under the nose of the Ukrainian mob boss known only as 'Mr. Rabbit' so they could start their new lives together. His first step is to seek out Job (Hoon Lee), an old accomplice and master hacker currently moonlighting as a hair stylist and drag queen, who provided Ana with a new identity all those years ago. Job gives him an address to a place called Banshee, a small town in Pennsylvania's Amish country. There Ana has become Carrie Hopewell, a respected real estate agent, mother of two and the wife of the District Attorney.

On his way to reunite with an unsuspecting Ana/Carrie, he witnesses a botched robbery when two toughs working for the local crime kingpin Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) try to rob a bar owned by Sugar Bates (Frankie Faison). He is forced to intervene, resulting in the deaths of the two robbers. Unfortunately they managed fatally shoot Lucas Hood, the new sheriff of Banshee who just arrived in town from Oregon. In a spectacular display of idiocy and ego, He realizes that no one in town has actually seen Hood in person so he assumes Hood's identity and becomes the sheriff of Banshee, hiding out from Mr. Rabbit, and keeping an eye on Ana, and her daughter Deva, who seems to be just old enough to line up with "Hood's" incarceration.

The series was well known for its well choreographed fight scenes and intense cinematic narrative structure. It mixed some very emotional and complex storylines with a LOT of violence, sex, and sass. It won a Creative Arts Emmy award in 2013 for Outstanding Special Visual Effects.
