This character type appears in child-friendly works. They are supposed to be a supreme {{Badass}}, but are unfortunately hampered by their target audience. They are as much [[Film/DieHard John McClane]] as can be squeezed by the censors, and they are often much tougher than their companions. Still, they are usually not allowed to smoke, drink, bed numerous people, swear, or do too much fighting or killing, and that is quite a list of hurdles to making them a rough-edged [[Film/DieHard Mister Falcon]].

Expect huge amounts of GoshDangItToHeck and NeverSayDie, although they will use the worst euphemisms they can get away with and "curse" more often than their companions. Their favorite phrases are "kick some butt/tail" and "Shoot!" For some reason, this type of character tends to be TotallyRadical.

The [=Badbutt=] tends to use FamilyFriendlyFirearms. When they are wielding a sword, expect plenty of the InverseLawOfSharpnessAndAccuracy.

Expect them to sound like Creator/ClintEastwood, Creator/BruceWillis, Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, Creator/JamesCagney, Creator/JoePesci, or one of many other "tough-guy" actors. (Occasionally it will be the genuine article, but more often they'll have a different voice actor [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed do an impersonation]].)

Not to be confused with a [=Badass=] character who happens to be from a kids' show, movie, etc. (e.g. the cast of the ''StarWarsCloneWars'' shorts). [[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] {{Gasshole}}.

Compare CluelessAesop, another trope where being kid-friendly can get in the way. RuleAbidingRebel is when a character doesn't even try to come off as this. This character may also use ParentheticalSwearing and/or {{Unusual Euphemism}}s.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Seto Kaiba in the 4Kids dub of ''Anime/YuGiOh!'' suffered this, or at least to the degree that someone who plays [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries children's card games]] can be {{Badass}}. The heavy censorship in the show prevented him from beating people with his apparent martial arts skill or jamming guns with a card tossed in the air (among other non-gaming related [=badass=] deeds).
* Most, if not all serious characters of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime. List includes Giovanni, Cyrus, Hunter J, the Iron-Masked Marauder, Lawrence III, as well as Ash's [[TheRival rival]] Paul (to an extent).
* Mister Stuart in {{Sonic X}}. He is the [[BadassTeacher teacher of Chris who can give a group of agents a beating]]. This was cut out by 4kids, but the Mister Stuart in the Japanese Version is an all-around {{Badass}}.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Whenever MarvelComics does a family friendly book featuring {{Wolverine}} (such as ''Wolverine: First Class'') readers are treated to the sight of a berzerker with foot-long, razor sharp, metal claws that never sheds any blood. This is usually accomplished by having him only use his claws on inanimate objects like doors and cars, and punching living creatures instead (how [[MechaMooks robots]] fare depends on how family-friendly the book is supposed to be - i.e. "all ages" or "for kids only" - and how [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman human-like]] the robots are). Having Wolverine constantly retract his claws during combat does have the side effect of allowing them to have Wolverine constantly ''extend'' his claws, which is his [[KineticClicking equivalent]] of [[DramaticGunCock dramatically cocking]] a [[ClickHello gun]]. Wolverine also never drinks or smokes in "family friendly" books, though he rarely smokes in regular comics anymore these days either.
* {{Comicbook/Nova}} - sure, he can get quite violent with his powers (and there was that time he [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath killed Annihulus by reaching down his throat and ripping his internal organs out]]), but it's acknowledged and even lampshaded that he hates swearing and doesn't seem to like smoking or drinking either.
-->''[[CatchPhrase Blue blazes!]]''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* [[EvilCounterpart The Moopets]] from ''Film/TheMuppets''. They're presented as seedy, lowlife thug types, but don't drink, smoke or swear (although we do see Miss Poogy sharpening a knife at one point, for unknown purposes).
* Film/{{Courageous}} is an interesting example in that being a Christian film, the cops are often shown doing pretty spectacular things (even with both stun-guns and real bullet-guns), minus the profanity and the smoking, drinking, etc. Except at the picnic where they do drink, just responsibly.
* Kelly Leak in the remake of ''The Bad News Bears'' somewhat comes off as this, despite the movie being PG-13. In the original film he smoked cigarettes, drove a motorcycle, and initially bullied some of the Bears. In the remake, however, he doesn't smoke, doesn't really have much of a bad attitude towards anybody except his former coach, that which is understandable, and his motorcycle is even replaced with a dirtbike.
* Latin American dubs of North American movies tend to turn out this way because those countries have stricter censorship standards than the United States or Canada when it comes to profanity. The Spanish-language dubs can't have the characters blurting "Jesus Christ" whenever they get flustered-- partly because of the strongly Catholic culture of those countries, and partly because [[LostInTranslation it's just not a common idiom in Spanish]]. Instead you'll hear really bad dudes shouting "''Cielos!''" ("Good heavens!") Even "Jiminy Christmas!" sounds too close to the real thing for some Latin American censors, and tends to be replaced with something even more absurd.
* Machete in the ''Film/SpyKids'' movies was about as [=badass=] as Creator/DannyTrejo could be allowed to be with the PG rating. This was later [[SubvertedTrope turned around]], though, once Creator/RobertRodriguez gave Machete [[Film/{{Machete}} his own, very R-rated movie]], where he was very much ''not'' this trope.
* Bad Cop and Batman from ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''. Bad Cop is the tough as nails [[TheDragon Dragon]] to Lord Business, and yet he never uses anything worse than "Darn" when voicing his frustrations at not being able to catch the heroes. For Batman it's cranked UpToEleven and PlayedForLaughs, as he desperately wants to be seen as a DarkerAndEdgier angsty, brooding figure but just comes off as trying way too hard. [[spoiler:Justified in that the story is being told by an 8-and-a-half year old boy who is engaging in his play at home, as Batman is probably his idea of what a ''real'' badass is like and his parents would presumably be able to hear if he used actual profanity with Bad Cop.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Played for laughs with Truckle the Uncivil in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes''. Mr Saveloy insists that he cut down on the bad language, and gives him a list of acceptable alternatives. He finds it doesn't work; even when Truckle uses a milder word, [[ParentheticalSwearing what you hear is the word he]] ''means''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Dean Moriarity on ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' wears a leather jacket, kisses lots of girls, and is a ''temporary'' tattoo artist. Real badass there.
** On the other hand, he gets ''eaten''. Off-screen. For hitting on Alex. Not badass for him, but Disney was clearly not worried about "bad messages".
* The Fonz from ''Series/HappyDays'' started out as a tough guy, but grew into this after he became a BreakoutCharacter.
* Much talk was made of how Shawn Hunter from ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' was such a [=badass=] in high school, but this was ultimately a kid who didn't lose his virginity until well into college, never smoked or did drugs, and got drunk like twice in his life.
* Most Franchise/PowerRangers are this, though once in a while one will prove to be an ''actual'' (but still family-friendly) badass. Case in point, the entire original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' team - they're described in the opening sequence as "teenagers with attitude", but generally seem to be upstanding, rule-abiding citizens.
* There is a Creator/DisneyXD sitcom called ''ImInTheBand'' that is constructed entirely from this trope. It's kinda like Van Halen starring in ''Series/FullHouse''.
* The titular character of ABC Family's ''[[TheMiddleman The Middleman]]'', although it's an interesting, tongue in cheek example of the trope. He's known for colorful euphemisms to replace swears (The saltiest he's been heard saying is "Coming in hotter than the devil's wedding tackle.") and in fact admonishes his sidekick for swearing. (It's censored with the tell-tale bleep and a censor box.) He also beats information out of a mook by repeatedly hitting the guy's head against a car... while reaching for a tall, cool glass of milk. It builds healthy bones.
* Jay and his group in ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' were supposed to be the school's dangerous crowd of at-risk teens, but when the worst thing they did was break into a vending machine in the school, BoycottTheCaf (and [[FanNickname the rest of the fandom]]) dubbed them "The Candy Bandits".
* The Creator/DisneyChannel Original Movie ''Film/RadioRebel'' is a gender inverted, [=Badbutt=] re-imagining of ''Film/PumpUpTheVolume''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music]]
* Hevisaurus, a Finnish metal band for children. Scary-looking [[EverythingIsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs]] in leather and spikes, playing HeavyMetal, with completely kid-friendly lyrics.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' has Phil, the Prince of Insufficient Light as an obvious stand-in for {{Satan}}. However, Phil only [[GoshDangItToHeck "darns" people to "heck"]] and carries around a giant spoon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'':
** Falco Lombardi is as hardcore as a fighter pilot in a game with an E rating can get. His favorite pastimes include kicking some tail and sarcastically calling you "Einstein".
** Wolf O'Donnell with his dramatic "What the [[GoshDangItToHeck HECK]]!?"
* SpyroTheDragon and his sidekick, Hunter, both fall into this in the original trilogy. They get away with as much attitude as the game ratings will allow. Unfortunately, lines like "You kicked their darn butts!" tend to send their lines into {{narm}} territory.
* Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog is [[MascotWithAttitude famous for his attitude]]. Though everyone, especially Shadow, got to go to swearing and a large body count in his [[ShadowTheHedgehog game]]. By extension, each and every MascotWithAttitude is portrayed to be tough, but only enough to appeal to big kids.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s Cid Highwind, when in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series. In the original game he's a chain-smoking BadassGrandpa with the filthiest mouth ever burned to a CD-ROM. In the jump to ''Kingdom Hearts'' he replaced his cigarette with a strand of grass and spends his time tending a shop instead of killing people with phallic objects.
* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', this is [[InvertedTrope inverted]] for MickeyMouse, DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} when they appear in the series. Although they were no stranger to violence in their early cartoons, they started being known for being harmless characters that mostly appeared in LighterAndSofter kiddie fare (the preschool show ''MickeyMouseClubhouse'' being the prime example). With ''Kingdom Hearts'' geared towards an older audience (but still family-friendly), the trio was effectively allowed to not only return to violence, but to act as warriors/mages and genuinely kick some ass alongside Sora. The same goes for Mickey's appearance in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey''.
* Sharla Rae Norvell, the leather-jacket-wearing rebel from the VideoGame/PurpleMoon games, is designed to still be sympathetic, so she couldn't really be that rebellious or the parents would have complained. Her FreudianExcuse is played up, her vocabulary seems a little strained, and when she's introduced in ''Rockett's New School'' cutting class, the locker feature emphasizes that she's only ''pretending'' to smoke cigarettes.
* Many of the racers in ''VideoGame/{{SSX}} Tricky'' possess potent levels of attitude, but they're in an E-rated game. In particular, there's Elise, who has a tendency to shout GoshDangItToHeck-isms really loudly in the habit of one [[ClusterFBomb vocally using more potent vocabulary]].
* Red Savarin of ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' is a friendly mercenary with a huge ego. He goes around with a StockFemurBone in his mouth, yelling "[[HoldYourHippogriffs Furballs!]]" and kicking butts with his custom made MiniMecha [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer by grabbing and throwing everything he see.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: WebComics]]
* X-Pletive from ''Webcomic/EssayBeeComicsPresentsFusion'' is a parody of this trope - he is a [=badass=] minister with high moral standards. He especially hates swearing. But his powers come from stimulating anger centers of his brain and the best way to get the riled up is to swear, so he swears like a drunken sailor.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Strong Bad from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' is part this, and part DiminishingVillainThreat. An email short, [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail197.html "your edge"]], is devoted to the subject: a fan points out that Strong Bad seems to be less edgy than he used to be, then Strong Bad counters by pointing out [[PokeThePoodle that time he and the Cheat walked past a deflated basketball and consciously decided not to re-inflate it, and that time they threw feathers at Strong Sad, and that time they spread mayonnaise all over cardboard boxes and waited a full half-hour before cleaning it up]]... "Yeah, okay, we're losing our edge." Note that ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', while family-friendly, is mostly marketed to twentysomethings; Strong Bad's [=Badbutt=]-ery mostly comes from the fact that he pretends to be [=Badass=] when he's pretty much an average joe who ''isn't''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I16UsL72Ztk This guy]] raps about being "the baddest of them all", making out with girls, and having "four hundred scars and four hundred guitars".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Bart was conceived as a non-[=badbutt=] version of ComicStrip/{{Dennis the Menace|US}}, but edgier animated shows make him look [=Badbutt=] by comparison. This was pointed out in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' when a Bart Expy told Cartman he once cut the head off a statue, to which Cartman replied that he once tricked a boy into eating his parents.
** Dennis himself really was a terror as far as 1950s toddlers go (he is often forced to sit in a corner as punishment), but the black-and-white TV series sanitized him so completely that Jay North (the actor who plays him) comes off as TheScrappy instead.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' poor Spidey took quite a beating due to the heavy censorship not letting him punch anyone.
** The SM:TAS take on Punisher falls under this trope. "Next time, Spider-Man... I will use lethal force!"
** They also did a StoryArc with Carnage, who (as his name sort of implies) is a superpowered SerialKiller in the original comics. Since he wasn't allowed to kill anyone in a children's cartoon show, he kind of sucked (literally, he sucked the life force out of people). However, this restriction had an InUniverse excuse - Carnage was [[PsychoForHire under the control of]] another villain trying to gather lots of life force, who stopped him whenever he wanted to "have fun" instead of doing his job.
*** One line by Robbie Robertson about Cletus Kasady (Carnage's human identity) having done things [[NothingIsScarier "too horrible to be put in newspapers"]] when [[NeverSayDie nobody talks about murder or death]] (remember, SerialKiller) makes this painfully obvious to any audience member over 10.
* The ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' combine this with equal parts TotallyRadical.
** This is especially blatant if you go back and read the original comics, which are much much darker.
** ''Let's kick shell!''
** The fact that the theme song emphasizes the fact that Raphael is "cool but rude" and the coolest/rudest thing they could think of to showcase that fact was him saying "Give me a break!"
** The comic book turtles had no problem cutting up human foot soldiers, but they were replaced by robot ninjas in the first TV series.
** It especially got to be a problem when the writers decided that they couldn't show Mikey using nunchucks ''ever'', not even in ways that caused no damage. They gave him a grappling hook that doubled as a magic lasso to tie up enemies, which made him look like TheChick on the team, even as LighterAndSofter as they already were.
** The [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Turtles from the 2003 TV series]], on the other hand, are more flat-out [=Badass=] despite being from a children's show (a fairly dark one, at that).
* The ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' are also quite fond of this, although "Crud!" is the worst they can get away with. The use it liberally, however.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Toph has shades of this, especially while training Aang. She is fond of calling Aang "[[Film/FullMetalJacket twinkle toes]]", which may qualify as a ParentalBonus.
** It apparently runs in the family. In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode "Welcome to Republic City" her no-nonsense daughter DaChief Lin Beifong is rather hamstrung in her dialogue while interrogating a perp.
--->'''Chief Bei-Fong''': "That's ancient history. And it's got ''[[GoshDangItToHeck diddly-squat]]'' to do with the mess you're in right now!"
** Sokka is TheSmartGuy, but still was able to occasionally hit people with his boomerang, when he gets a CoolSword in a later episode he's now has no chance to, since that would draw blood. Likewise, the skills of KnifeNut Mai are impressive, but the restrictions of children's television mean that she'll only be able to pin people's clothing.
** It parodies that Jet is this in ''AvatarTheAbridgedSeries'', where Jet makes the comment that he is so [=badass=], that if the show weren't TV-Y7, he'd instead [[SmokingIsCool have a cigarette.]]
* {{Wolverine}} in every Saturday-morning [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} kids]]-[[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution show]] [[WesternAnimation/{{WolverineAndTheX-Men}} version]] of the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' ever. In the [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} 90s series]] he was never able to land a single hit with his claws unless it was against a robot. Or his target was [[MadeOfIron immune]]. Or his target could [[GoodThingYouCanHeal instantly heal]] it off. If he managed to pin someone and raise his claw to strike someone would convince him to stop or he'd be blindsided and the victim would escape unharmed.
** Plus on the ''[[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution X-Men: Evolution]]'' series [[FantasyHelmetEnforcement he always wore his motorcycle helmet while riding.]] Because having an unbreakable skull and [[GoodThingYouCanHeal healing factor]] wasn't protection enough.
** This was made even worse by the network Standards & Practices office, who further watered down Wolverine. [[http://marvel.toonzone.net/xmen/backstage/melching/longshot.php One comment from the episode "Longshot"]] literally wouldn't even let Logan be a [=badbutt=]: "Please delete or substitute for Wolverine's 'we saved his butt from some of Mojo's goons.'"
* Gruffi from the ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' definitely has shades of this.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** Link never actually uses his sword as a weapon (at least on sentient opponents). No slicing or thrusting whatsoever. He instead takes advantage of its beam-shooting properties and thus uses it more like a sword-shaped BoomStick.
** In ''Stinging a Singer'', he turns down a sword offered to him by a wandering merchant because it's useless ''for not firing beams.'' He later decides to get it due to supposedly having the power to make ladies like him, but [[spoiler: turns out it's fake.]] When he tries to fight later, it turns out despite his skill with the beams, he's not actually a very good swordsman and gets disarmed before he tries to swing it.
* ''GIJoe'': These men (and women) are supposed to be the best of the best of the best that the U.S. armed forces can offer. And yet, starting with the second season, they routinely find themselves run into the ground by their new drill sergeant: Sergeant Slaughter--a pro wrestler. And Snake Eyes, supposedly the baddest of the bad (a ninja, no less, who except for the lack of a healing factor and indestructible skeleton might even good enough to give {{Wolverine}} a run for his money), never even manages to land a single blow on his opponents. Fat lot of good all of those blades, small arms, and martial arts training do under the circumstances.
* ''WesternAnimation/ConanTheAdventurer''. It's ConanTheBarbarian -- [[RecycledInSpace FOR KIDS!]] Interestingly, was hailed by many fans as capturing the authentic feel of the novels and comics better than the movies, despite Conan not doing much in the way of kingdom-building, enslaving, and stamping-beneath-sandaled-feet. Mesmira defiantly straddled the line since most of her schemes would have killed somebody in a more mature-rated show. Instead they are PutOnABus or rescued in the nick of time. Wrath-amon seemed on the surface to be more dangerous as the main antagonist, but in reality suffered from the same madman plan hangups as Cobra Commander, except with magic.
* Fowlmouth from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' has, as his name would suggest, a problem with dirty language. In the early series he would curse constantly, which was censored with the classic BLEEP sound - his starring episode sounded like it was edited by a mouse dancing on a Morse Code transmitter. Apparently this was too suggestive, as in the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventuresHowISpentMyVacation'' special he was reduced to saying "dad-gum" instead of his usual cussin', pretty much losing the character's (admittedly one-dimensional) point for existing in the first place.
* The whole team on ''WesternAnimation/BureauOfAlienDetectors'' would probably fit, but mostly BoisterousBruiser Ben Packer.
* Sub-Zero in ''WesternAnimation/MortalKombatDefendersOfTheRealm'' was a [=Badbutt=] in the same way as the animated version of Wolverine, complete with silly one liners.
-->''Nothing burns hotter than ice!''
* From the same USANetwork animation block: ''WesternAnimation/WingCommanderAcademy'''s Maniac. His tactics were downgraded to merely 'unorthodox' and 'not by the book,' not the complete [[BloodKnight batshit insane mess]] he would later become.
* ''WesternAnimation/HighlanderTheAnimatedSeries.'' The kids version of a franchise about people chopping each others' heads off with swords for recreation.
* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'':
** Jade and the "ancient art of butt-whoop." Jade is only supposed to be about ten years old, after all.
** Jackie's "yin" side, as brought out by the Tiger Talisman. In his first appearance, he was stealing and beating the crap out of people just for kicks and giggles. But as seasons went by, his actions became swayed by whether or not a small child thought he looked "cool." His Yin side actually drifted into [=Badbutt=] territory in his debut episode and from then on because Jade guilt trips him into being less of a jerk, and even Jackie's Yin side cares for Jade (and wants to look good for others), so the [=badass=] who restrains himself for the benefit of kids watchers is basically applied in universe.
** The Dark Hand itself. Supposedly an uber scary criminal syndicate with its hands in everything, and capable of giving the secret service organisation constant grief, they still don't use any guns and they'll only actually use weapons capable of drawing blood against Jackie who is capable of easily dodging them anyway. And this being a kids cartoon, the 3 most active henchmen resemble The Three Stooges more than professional criminal [=badasses=]. And of course they eventually hit massive villain decay, going from having a ton of members to just the three stooges henchmen, The Dragon (who went from nearly killing someone to being a strong yet bumbling opponent) and the leader who lost all his fighting skills and ended up a cowardly hobo.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** TJ is the most awesome fourth grader ever.
%%** And there's Spinelli.
** The cartoon utilizes this trope often in combination with MundaneMadeAwesome for some of the recurring characters, such as Hustler Kid, who sells things like contraband candy to the other kids. One episode revealed that other schools have their own Hustler Kids.
* Every ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' member and villain (except [[ButtMonkey the Toiletnator]]).
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} as he is presented in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. He drinks, but the drink is only implied to be alcoholic (it ''is'' highly explosive though), he uses only family-friendly swears (the exact same ones he uses in the comic, point of fact), only alludes to serious violence and never kills anyone on-screen, has a family friendly laser gun, only uses his [[WeaponOfChoice signature meathook]] to grab things in a non-harmful fashion, and doesn't go much further than [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a few sleazy comments]] towards ComicBook/LoisLane and Franchise/WonderWoman on the 'sex' front. He's also shown to have, if not a HiddenHeartOfGold, at least a Hidden Heart of Pyrite or some other almost-precious-looking metal.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Finn and Jake zigzag around this all the time. The show also uses idiosyncratic slang words and phrases. "Oh my Glob" is probably the most commonly used of these. In the earlier episodes there was some usage of mathematical terms (and the word "mathematical" itself) as all-purpose expletives and/or intensifiers, though this isn't as common in the later episodes.
** Marceline is a half vampire who eats shades of red. The season 5 episode "Red Starved" establishes that she can drink blood, but chooses not to for moral reasons.
* Kim and Ron from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', with a healthy dose of TotallyRadical at times.
* This sort of thing crops up a lot in the more dramatic episodes of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. While nearly every character has moments, Rainbow Dash and Applejack probably get it the most often, with the former often acting like a hotshot athlete/fighter pilot and the latter being a rough and tumble cowgirl. It's especially evident in [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW the comic]], which goes pretty much as far as it possibly can with the "Let's go kick some flank/rump/butt" style storylines as they can manage while still being an all-ages comic.
* ''WesternAnimation/SheZow'' does this. A lot. There are episodes where an unexpurgated version would be a ClusterFBomb stream.
* ComicBook/ThePunisher shows up in ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperheroSquadShow'' more than once. Since the series skews even younger than most superhero cartoons, his Badbutt nature is basically unparalleled. In his first appearance, his usual BadassBoast about crime is an ExtendedAnalogy comparing criminals to Brussels sprouts.
-->'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XoRGgpF2qc The Punisher]]:''' I'm out here to keep those stinkin' sprouts off the mac and cheese! Keep them from leaving the store in the first place!
* ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'': Played With. Dan is often angry and stressed out. His tendency to put RevengeBeforeReason leads to fight greater foes (the government, [[ItMakesSenseInContext giant vegetable monster]], etc.) over petty issues. You'd think [[SirSwearsALot he'd swear a lot]]. But it's a kid show. So he doesn't swear on screen. [[EvenEvilHasStandards He doesn't kill people in his revenge schemes either and is disturbed whenever Chris mentions killing]] even when he just says he'd kill for bacon. But his actions are often {{played for| laughs}} BlackComedy and he himself does occasionally think about killing the person who angered him as revenge.

Now go find another trope, [[Series/FamilyMatters or we will be forced to verbally castigate you in front of your peers!]]
