[[caption-width-right:350: 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."''
-->-- '''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}}.
