[[caption-width-right:350: Creed Vs. Creed]]

->''"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."''
-->-- '''The [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin's Creed]]'''

Sometimes, the {{badass}} doesn't need a [[BadassLongcoat longcoat]], or a [[BadassBiker motorcycle]], or a [[CoolShades pair of shades]]. Sometimes, you just need the right words. Maybe you're a badass who's part of [[BadassArmy 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 InTheNameOfTheMoon. If it only gets said once, it's probably a BadassBoast instead. Saying it to reinforce your goal or similar can have the same effect as a SurvivalMantra or a ThemeMusicPowerup, and can precede or punctuate a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

Not related to the guy from [[Manga/BlackCat Black Cat]], even though he is a {{Badass}} BigBad. Or the [[FourStarBadass 4 star badass General Creed]] from TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}.
