The Evil Badass is basically a villain or antivillain who is able to kick the heroes' butt physically or morally, or even kill them. He seldom gets jailed, this if he doesn't have the power of money to never get jailed. Also he is everything except a punchbag to the hero. Indeed, sometimes the hero becomes a punchbag to him.

Examples:

Comic Books

DC UNIVERSE

  • Deathstroke was the worst nightmare of the Teen Titans and kicked the butts of the Justice League, being considered the villainous counterpart of Batman in the pre-New 52 continuity. He indeed killed a dozen of heroes.
  • Speaking of Batman, The Joker is a pain in his ass, Bane BROKE him and Ra's Al Ghul is mighty enough to defeat him anytime.
  • Lex Luthor has the power of money and knows the only way of Superman defeat him is killing - what Supes will never do.
  • Darkseid is one of the few vilains strong enought to kill Superman with his own hands. Doomsday really did it once.

    This is really redundant. We don't need this, considering the overuse of Badass anyway.

    On behalf of the moderation staff, NO new badass tropes.

    Since a Badass isn't by default a good guy, there's absolutely no need to make a separate non-trope for "Badass but a bad guy". Additionally, there are already far too many Badass <x> tropes and non-tropes that are nothing more than lists of characters someone likes.
