I notice that a few of these Badass Boasts are made by somebody other than the Badass. So... not really a 'boast'. I submit that there should be two categories: Badass Boast, and a different trope called, say, Let Me Introduce The Badass - when a Supporting Character or Everyman is the one telling the villains, "You should be afraid."

I was thinking something similar for when a support character (the example that springs to mind is a child) has been say captured and tells their capture that a badass will be ruining their day, I.e. "my dad is going to kick your ass"

For the top-of-page quote: It should be famous. Shouldn't we have "I came, I saw, and I conquered?"

That has got to be the MOST RECOGNIZABLE usage of this trope, and it's not from some post-modern satire or whatever the current quote is from.

Agreed. I removed the one from Secondhand Lions because, like all of the other ones quoted thus far, it is simply a Badass Boast, but not the Badass Boast worthy of topping this page.

Most recognizable?

Cogito ergo sum "I think, therefore I am."

That isn't a boast, though. It is the reassurance of one's existence.

Personally, I'd agree that Veni Vidi Vici is the Badass Boast. If you were to hold a poll of all of the ones this wiki records, I doubt any others would be as recognised as that one.

Would Keiichi's " I don't care about destiny, I don't care about the heavens. None of that matters to me. I just want to be with you!" line from the OV As count as a boast, seeing as who he would believe to be(and is) watching?

Does the MJ song "Bad" mean nothing to you people?

Does anyone have the page quote from before it was Beowulf?

I think there was a quote from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. "Who the hell do you think I am?". Or maybe that was the image's caption. Im not sure sure.

What about Tvtropes's own badass boast?
