  • Evan's charged Slenderman with intent to kill twice, but admittedly his much more badass attempt was in Ashen Waste, when he charged Slendy with a baseball bat. He fails, but he immediately asks "Did I kill it?" when Vince and Jeff are helping him up. Upon being told he didn't kill it, he says that he "should've brought my knife" before coughing blood all over the pavement.
    • Now probably topped by somehow beating the Rake into unconsciousness and throwing it out a second story window.
    • In a later fight he somehow managed to tear off its head, but that sort of backfired because then he had to deal with both the Rake's decapitated head AND body attacking him at the same time.
  • Also in Ashen Waste, we have the gang in a car confronted with Slenderman. Jeff, in the driver's seat, is asked "You know what we have to do?" by Vinny. He answers his own question with "Gun it". "Run the fucker down" Evan chimes in. The gang proceed to try and Run Slenderman over with Evan cackling like a hyena in the backseat.
  • In addition to being a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, Evan helping Alex and Jeff deal with the Rake in "Alex" is pretty badass. He's the one walking around with a huge knife and a flashlight who sticks his head into the closet where the hellbeast has been coming from.
    • And, unlike that poor exterminator, came back alive.
  • Jeff gets one of these in "Damsel" when he dive tackles a security guard much larger than himself
  • And now, all the above have been topped by the recent long awaited reappearance of a now Leather Jacketed, Cigar Smoking, Cheesy one Liner(ing) Dr Corenthal whom not only rescues Vinny from the Slenderman, but almost instantly becomes one of the (if not THE) most badass characters in the entire Mythos when he both calmly shoots Slenderman with a revolver but more importantly (and unlike Evan, Jay and Zeke whose attempts failed badly) he actually succeeded in driving him away with zero negative effect on himself or on Vinny. Bad. Ass.
  • In a crossover moment, Firebrand implies that HABIT assisted him in breaking free of the Administrator's influence, meaning that HABIT managed to break someone loose from Slendy's sway.
  • Vinny delivers a truly epic "The Reason You Suck" Speech to HABIT, of all entities, in "two thousand three hundred and ninety-five"
    Vinny: I am so empty! I've gone about as far as I can go. I've reached the end of the road... And I am done with this shit. I'm not scared of you! You killed people, y-uhh, I've seen you, y'know, commit violence, but you haven't gone the distance, you fuck! You haven't broken any bones! Oh, you bruised me up a little bit, but I've got all my limbs! You're being sadistic, emotionally, for the sake of it, and you know what-? (Dissolves into laughter) It's getting stale, fucker!
    • In the same video, HABIT declares that Vinny's going to help him with a little task: taking out the Slender Man.
  • Vinny's "removed footage" in "All good things" reveals exactly why HABIT killed Jeff: it's not just that Jeff was trying to figuring things out, it's that he's the Guardian; he has a "spark" in him that will never stop trying to protect the innocent and the people he loves. HABIT saw him as a threat.
    HABIT: You care about every single goddamn one of 'em. You wanted to keep them alive so bad. But you couldn't. And that's what drives you. That's that little... spark, in there, that'll never go away. 'Cause as long as there is innocence to protect, there will be you to Guard it... you to protect it. That's why I hope you understand that...that's why we can't you live.
  • Speaking of "All good things", while Evan and Vinny's brutal, bloody fight with one another is undeniably tragic, you can't deny that it's probably the coolest fight scene in the entire series. The fact that Vinny manages to finally kill Evan after years of being a demon-possessed Implacable Man is incredibly awesome.

  • From a meta standpoint, getting Tim Sutton himself to voice Roger in "MEET THE CRYPTIDS".

How well does it match the trope?
