** [[JackChurchill JACK.]] [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/churchill.html CHURCHILL.]] - His nickname was even "Mad Jack". And, considering this man fought World War II with a claymore and a longbow and was ''more effective'' than the guys using weapons made for that time, we can all agree it was crazy......[[PrecisionFStrike ''and fucking awesome!!!!'']]
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/irwin.html Steve Irwin]]
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/foley.html Mick Foley]] - Who was so MadeOfIron he survived ''[[NoOneCouldSurviveThat being flung over 20 feet to the ground from the top of a steel cage , on his back.....TWICE......]]'' ''[[MadeOfIron AND WALKED AWAY UNDER HIS OWN POWER WHEN IT WAS OVER!]]''
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/yeager.html Chuck Yeager]] (The resident TropeNamer for guys who look at death and don't even flinch)
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/weathers.html Beck Wethers]]
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/colbert.html Stephen Colbert]]
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/nedkelly.html Ned Kelly]] - the picture ''alone'' proves just how ridiculously awesome he was.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The article on the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse is extra-funny now that VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}, a game where you play the Horseman of War is out. The description for him is amazingly fitting.
** [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Commander Shepard]] is portrayed in game as being in Badass Weekly. The site responded upon finding out about this by playing through the trilogy then writing Shepard up to be one of the biggest badasses on the whole site.
** In the article on Joseph Kittinger, the author doesn't know which layer of the atmosphere he was in when he set an altitude record. (It was the stratosphere.) The project that eventually beat another of Kittinger's records was called "Stratos", leaving no such doubt. (However, the fact that this helped Kittinger become more well-known makes the bit at the end of the article lamenting his status as "a pretty obscure character" HeartwarmingInHindsight.)
* HolyShitQuotient: The site aims to keep it high.
* MagnificentBastard /[[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]]
** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/pujol.html Juan Pujol Garcia]]

** [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/wayne.html John Wayne]]
** A number of the articles may include phrases that seem to refer to the trope with outlandish deeds actually being performed by the subject in question or just some flavourful TestosteronePoisoning humour. A notable example is that the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Bulge Battle of the Bulge]] was presumedly named after [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/funk.html 'Lenny Funk's raging kill-boner'.]]
* NauseaFuel: The quotation heading Mary E. Walker's entry, a viewing of battlefield surgery in the American Civil War, is... unpleasant.
* SoBadItsGood: Pretty much everything regarding [[http://badassoftheweek.com/starshiptroopers.html Starship Troopers]].
