* ''Fanfic/TalesOfTheUndiscoveredSwords'': Nikkō Ichimonji's battle attire is that of a {{Miko}}, even coming with a sheer overgarment called ''[[https://tshop.r10s.jp/dento-wako/cabinet/isyo/n7887.jpg chihaya]]''. [[spoiler:It is at first acknowledged in-narrative as to be somewhat unsuitable for combat, befitting his origin as a shrine offering, but later falls squarely into this territory.

** Naruto's full Rikudou/Kyuubi form has a cloak made of ''[[BattleAura chakra]]'' which resembles that of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Sage of the Six Paths]]. It is so potently BadAss that Kakashi thinks he just saw [[spoiler:his long-dead sensei, [[MemeticBadass Minato]].]]

* ''VideoGame/WarhammerOnline'' has the [[ChurchMilitant Warrior Priests]] and their Destruction equivalent, the Disciples of Khaine. Being that rare kind of healer that does its thing from melee, they certainly qualify for the BadAss denotation.

Like the BadassLongcoat in modern settings, a character who wears a long robe in a fantasy setting will invariably be {{Badass}}. Like the BadassCape, this can be used to dramatic effect by [[DramaticWind billowing in the wind]], but it also has the advantage of being potentially {{All Encompassing|Mantle}} to add an air of mystery. Plus, it looks [[InTheHood good with a hood]]. Expect many monks to be this.

* Subverted in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Mousse routinely wears long Chinese robes as his signature outfit, and his first appearance makes him out as strong and capable. Then something goofy happens (in the manga, the concrete roller he sliced in half falls on his head and knocks him out, in the anime, he starts wolfing down the bowl of ramen he just did an acrobatic routine with without spilling) and his "BadAss Cred" is gone in an instant, firmly establishing him as something of the ButtMonkey. Shinnosuke seems to be a BadAss marital artist in a janitor's uniform who is a master of fighting with a [[ImprobableWeaponUser pushbroom]]... but he has such a horrible memory he just keeps making an idiot of himself by, say, stumbling headfirst into his own boobytraps.

** Lord Vetinari himself wears plain black robes, and can convey more {{Badass}}-edness with a sharp glance than most characters could with adamantium claws and a pulse rifle.

* While BadAss is probably not the right word for it, Prior Walter from ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' does don a long black robe after the visit from the Angel, revealing him as "the Prophet".

* In the first ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' game, Jedi robes are only the rather forgettable sort of tunic-ish things, without the gigantic over-robes. In the second game, all Jedi robes come with over-robes.
