There's a story that explain why a Long Coat became a Badass trade-mark?

Good question; the old was much better. I'll make an Image Pickin' thread about it.

EDIT: That was nice and quick; it's been swapped back in. Archived thread.

In Australia there is the 'Drizabone', which is the wet weather clothing of anyone in the Outback, often worn with an Akubra (rabbit-skin cowboy style hat). This has many mythical connotations in Australian lore - like being the sort of person who can just do his job no matter the weather.

More example entries that are about the character. The trope is the coat itself. "[X]" or "[X] wears one" don't tell us anything about the coat.


  • Kuwabara of YuYu Hakusho is usually wearing one when he does something crazy awesome.

  • Meowth, of all people (er, Pokemon?) has worn one of these in a few episodes.
  • As of the Black and White season, Team Rocket wears a trio of these, combined with Nice Hats and sunglasses.

  • Minato puts on his just before he goes to fight the Kyuubi and Madara.
  • Naruto also puts on one when he fights Pain.
  • All the kages get one.
  • All Akatsuki members get one as well.

Video games:


  • Alim Surana in this Dragon Age fanfic.

Film: (Gi Joe The Rise Of Cobra):

  • Gregor Eisenhorn has got one on the cover of his omnibus edition.

Video Games:

  • So does Giovanni, in Pokémon Heart Gold and Soul Silver.
    • Don't forget Looker!

Western Animation:

Just out of curiosity, can something like a windbreaker count as a badass longcoat?, or does it have to literally be a long coat?

It needs to be a longcoat — a duster, a trenchcoat, a greatcoat, or something like it, as described in the trope definition. It's not just any coat.

But I think there needs to be a trpe about "badasses" (what does that word even mean?'His ass is bad!' 'Well we'll have to remove it nd put him in the iron ass.' but I digress.) there needs to be a trope about the "badass guy" who wears a short jacket, like Indiana Jones or Ash i recent events.

Well, you could always just go look at the general page: Badass

Oh, and it's become a word in its own right. It uses "ass" as in "ass-kicking".

Wilbyr, there is no set administrative policy on which side the images go on. It's not on the page you linked — all it says there is "Also, if a left-aligned image viewed at 1280 resolution causes weird breaks in text or paragraphs, or interferes with lists or quotes, right-align it." This one wasn't doing that. It's also not on the page Images in Wiki Pages — again, all it says is if it screws up the formatting to have it on the left, it should moved to the right.

More non-examples, incomplete examples and examples that aren't about the coat:

These need more information about the coat.

This one needs to be less about why he's badass and more about the coat. Also, a person is not a Badass Longcoat. The coat is the Badass Longcoat.

More details about the coat needed:
  • How is it that Claire Stanfield from Baccano isn't mentioned?His Ax Crazy personality helps,too.

And another one that doesn't even mention the coat:

And some more that say nothing about the coat (all from Film, this time):
