** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/roland.html Roland]] propped himself up against a rock as he was dying so that he would face his enemies standing even in death. ** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/blackbeard.html Blackbeard]] [[Rasputiniansurvived being shot five times and stabbed twenty times unfazed right before he was finally decapitated. Some legends state that he still didn't die even then. ** "Since nobody gets the better of a [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/predator.html Predator]] warrior and lives to tell the tale, if he's about to die from his wounds he activates the self-destruct on his wrist and leaves behind a gigantic fucking smoking crater in his wake, obliterating himself and any bastard lucky enough to get a cheap shot in on him." ** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/khalid.html Khalid ibn Al-Waleed]] was such a BloodKnight that he lamented on his deathbed that he would die of old age and not in battle.
