  • Badass Spaniard: Some recent and highly controversial sketches feature Spanish sport stars such as Rafael Nadal or Alberto Contador as explicitly doped super-humans who kicked The Avengers' ass, among other feats. It caused a sort of diplomatic scandal as Spanish authorities and Spanish sport federations really didn't like these jokes.
    "Spanish athletes. They do not win by chance."

Badass Spaniard has been renamed to Dashing Hispanic. The trope requires some necessary characteristics, like being a rogue Anti-Hero of wit and charm, kind of like Zorro. There is not enough context to tell if it fits here.

I'd say it's one of the case of misuse of the trope that spurned its name change. The comment probably fits with another trope, but not this one.

I think it belongs to the "Memetic Badass" category.

Probably. Though it's a YMMV trope, so it'll need to be specified it's invoked/in-universe.
