* When Creator/ElizaDushku is hit on and asked out on a date when she plays an FBI agent in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', she asks if her Navy SEAL husband is also invited. Dushku is known for playing Faith in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Echo in ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', and Rubi in ''{{Wet}}'', in other words badasses. So she’s matched up with the ultimate BadAss for one hell of a cockblock.
* Admiral Chegwidden in ''Series/{{JAG}}'' was a SEAL before he transferred to surface warfare (rising to command a destroyer) and then going to law school to join the JAG Corps and becoming JAG himself. This was initially depicted as being career calculation as Chegwidden was introduced with aspiration towards becoming Chief of Naval Operations. On the odd occasion he is involved in a incident he shows he can still be BadAss into his sixties.

* TheWarOnTerror: After the 9/11 attacks, [=SEALs=] were deployed to the Persian Gulf to intercept suspected Taliban vessels, before moving in on Afghanistan to perform recon and help escort [[SemperFi Marines]] to launch the attack, no doubt the mother of all bodyguards. They would continue to work in country over the following weeks and months, specifically when they themselves were captured and had to be rescued by other elite, {{badass}} special forces. They would later secure Iraqi oil when the country was invaded, [[BigDamnHeroes saved a hijacked ship from Somali pirates]], and on May 1, 2011, were sent on a covert operation into Pakistan at the behest of UsefulNotes/BarackObama. This was the mission every SEAL writer dreams of: a high-stakes infiltration and strike that could potentially result in World War III. That dream was realized when, with the aid of intelligence agencies, the [=SEALs=] were able to track down and kill UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden, with the news a RealLife example of AndThereWasMuchRejoicing, with sports events interrupted by the news and the legendary [=SEALs=] writing themselves into the history books in the process.

* {{Determinator}}: [=SEALs=] are taught to be this, with trainees who gut it out more valued than those who might be more skilled or find the training easier. Richard Marcinko tells a story of a guy Roy Bohem trained, who had to dive for buckets and swim as far as he can before surfacing. Instead he ''walked the length of the pool without coming up for air.'' When asked what the hell he was doing he explain, "I can't swim," and thus was taught how to because he Did. Not. Quit.

However, the first concept of [=SEALs=] came with the OSS Operational Swimmers, who would be dropped behind enemy lines to spy and conduct raids. The Navy Underwater Demolitions Team, who [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin were teams of demolitions experts blowing up underwater obstacles]], would later adopt the idea and form the Navy [=SEALs=].

* UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar:
UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar: During Korea the concept of Navy [=SEALS=] would be expanded upon, where they proved that not only were they naturally capable of using their underwater and demolitions training but proved to be just as fearsome on land, employing their skills in destroying bridges, tunnels and railways. UDT Lieutenant Ted Fielding basically said, "Hey, you don't need a dedicated team for specific targets, we know this and we're ready to step it up." For his actions he earned the Silver Star and promotion to Captain, and greatly expanded and deepened the modus operandi of [=SEALS=] who were seen as their area of operations simply in the water, the expansion and deepening would serve greatly in an upcoming conflict.
* UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar:
UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar: At the behest of [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy]] Navy divers and swimmers were formed into the elite team they are known as today, with the creation of [=SEAL=] Team One and [=SEAL=] Team Two. Utilizing the lessons learned from the success of World War Two and Korea prospects were put through TrainingFromHell to become not just maritime commandos, but land based scouts and raiders, infiltrators, saboteurs and assassins. The two platoons would be sent to Vietnam but there was a problem: [=SEALS=] had a good grasp of what they could do and what their mission capabilities were, where the regular chain of command thought they knew their tactics and how best to deploy, leading to a degree of JurisdictionFriction. Many used the war as a testing bed to develop new ideas and test out exactly how far, how dark, and how tough they could push themselves, whether it be relying on their skills and instincts to survive or throw out the rules that didn't make sense in favor of better ones. One in particular would be then Lieutenant Richard Marcinko, the Literature/RogueWarrior, who would go on to command Team Two and whip them into shape and the lessons learned would lead to the formation of a new counterterrorist team.
