Badass Creed

Creed Vs. Greed

"Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember:
Nothing is true.
Where other men are limited by morality or law, remember:
Everything is permitted.
We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins.
Nothing is true. Everything is permitted."

Sometimes, the badass doesn't need a longcoat, or a motorcycle, or a pair of shades. Sometimes, you just need the right words. Maybe you're a badass who's part of an order of badasses with similar goals. Or maybe you're a lone badass, and you've come up with a credo that explains who you are to others. Either way, you've got a Badass Creed, that sums up everything you are and what you believe in.

See also In the Name of the Moon. If it only gets said once, it's probably a Badass Boast instead. Saying it to reinforce your goal or similar can have the same effect as a Survival Mantra or a Theme Music Powerup, and can precede or punctuate a Crowning Moment of Awesome.

Not related to the guy from Black Cat, even though he is a Badass Big Bad. Or the 4 star badass General Creed from Warhammer 40,000.
