- Segata Sanshiro was a ridiculously badass martial artist created to be the Sega Saturn's mascot in Japanese commercials. He kicked people's asses for having social lives instead of being hardcore gamers, including an instance where he took out a nightclub for the same reason. Other feats of badassery include turning a Soccer net on its side rather than stopping the incoming ball, dropping his baseball bat in a batting cage in favor of kicking the ball, throwing a man with such force that he exploded upon hitting the ground, and making children cry by revealing that he's the one hiding behind a Santa Claus mask. When the Sega Saturn stepped down to make way for the Dreamcast, Sanshiro went out with a bang - literally. He redirected a missile with his bare hands, rode it into space, and died in a glorious explosion while shouting his catchphrase: "Sega Saturn... SHIROOOOOOO!" (You must play Sega Saturn!)
- He was also played by the man who portrayed the original Kamen Rider who, as previously mentioned, was a total badass.
- Almost very named character in Ravages Of Time. Justified as they're all warriors.
- Cadis Etram Di Raizel from Noblesse can take on Body Horror inflicted abomination that punches through wall with just his words. Oh, and all of his fights ends in Curb-Stomp Battle, but it never comes up as God-Mode Sue, but more as Showy Invincible Hero.
- The Painkiller from the Judas Priest song of the same name. A half-man half-machine who rides on a motorcycle with bladed wheels.
- In The Devil Went Down to Georgia, a young man, Johnny, not only makes fun of the devil throughout the whole song but he kicks the devil's ass at fiddling and then Johnny calls the devil a "son of a bitch". Let that sink in. A normal, human, mortal, young fiddler just called THE FREAKING DEVIL a "son of a bitch".
- Then in The Devil Comes Back To Georgia, the devil comes back ten years later. Johnny now has a family. the Devil tells Johnny that his own pride will be his downfall. Johnny isn't fazed despite the fact that he hasn't played the fiddle since his baby was born and is a little rusty. Johnny isn't fazed even when the devil takes his gold fiddle. Johnny just gets out his old fiddle. While it's not completely clear, the last two lines of the song, "The Devil's dream's that he can win" and "But Johnny is the best that's ever been", heavily imply that, once again, Johnny kicked the devil's ass at fiddling.

- Wonderful Pistachios has a commercial where a honey badger uses a snake to beat open a pistachio, then the narrator actually calls him badass.
