arnold schwarzenegger

Not because of his movies, just his life. Started weight lifting at 15 and won Mr. Universe at age 20. He went on to win Mr. Olympia seven times. Becoming a movie star and a governor. I love him.

Woah woah...I don't think there is any need to get so political. This is just a fun topic, not some in-depth discussion. I chose this guy because it is remarkable to me how a simple farmer had such deadly aim, and was such a brilliant sniper - and on top of that, in such bitter cold/tough conditions, with no former training, and using only a regular rifle. That's what makes him interesting to me.

Why do people CONTINUOUSLY go off on F.T on Crunchy, and ruin fun threads?

He doesn't have to submit to US Justice and is welcome to fight extradition from where he is holed up now. The US Government has an obligation to the people who died or may die because of the release of their support of the US. He is not condemning himself to a death sentence, he won't even face the Justice of Sweden (not a US Ally). That is why he is a coward and accused rapist.

sorry and I agree that guy was pretty bad ass though Vasily Zaytsev might have given him a run for his money. Something about farm boys making the best snipers in WW2 must be that they grew up hunting

I can believe no one is going to mention the "gentle killer" Audie Murphy. An actor and song writer whom most of the bad ass anime characters unconsciously mimic.

The official U.S. Army citation for Murphy's Medal of Honor reads:

Second Lt. Murphy commanded Company B, which was attacked by six tanks and waves of infantry. 2d Lt. Murphy ordered his men to withdraw to a prepared position in a woods, while he remained forward at his command post and continued to give fire directions to the artillery by telephone. Behind him, to his right, one of our tank destroyers received a direct hit and began to burn. Its crew withdrew to the woods. 2d Lt. Murphy continued to direct artillery fire, which killed large numbers of the advancing enemy infantry. With the enemy tanks abreast of his position, 2d Lt. Murphy climbed on the burning tank destroyer, which was in danger of blowing up at any moment, and employed its .50 caliber machine gun against the enemy. He was alone and exposed to German fire from three sides, but his deadly fire killed dozens of Germans and caused their infantry attack to waver. The enemy tanks, losing infantry support, began to fall back. For an hour the Germans tried every available weapon to eliminate 2d Lt. Murphy, but he continued to hold his position and wiped out a squad that was trying to creep up unnoticed on his right flank. Germans reached as close as 10 yards, only to be mowed down by his fire. He received a leg wound, but ignored it and continued his single-handed fight until his ammunition was exhausted. He then made his way back to his company, refused medical attention, and organized the company in a counterattack, which forced the Germans to withdraw. His directing of artillery fire wiped out many of the enemy; he killed or wounded about 50. 2d Lt. Murphy's indomitable courage and his refusal to give an inch of ground saved his company from possible encirclement and destruction, and enabled it to hold the woods which had been the enemy's objective.

When asked after the war why he had seized the machine gun and taken on an entire company of German infantry, he replied simply, "They were killing my friends."

"I remember the experience as I do a nightmare. A demon seems to have entered my body. My brain is coldly alert and logical. I do not think of the danger to myself. My whole being is concentrated on killing."
—Audie Murphy

What has accused rapist to do with anything you like to throw that in at every turn? Look just admit you have a hate on for the guy. That doesn't change the reasons the other person might consider him a hero. Harping on that tune just makes you look like a jerk. IMO anyway.

Julian Assange




He reminds me of some sci-fi hero who dares to go against the government, the anti-hero protagonist.


He doesn't just preach his ideology, he acts upon it. That's why I find him admirable.
A rapist and a coward who would betray anybody if it suits him. Sorry I just don't get it.



A rape case that was never proven.

He can't be a coward if he dared to expose the US top secrets knowing he will forever be on the run from the US govt.
Right now he is not hiding from the US he is avoiding extradition to face the rape cases. Not one but 2 rape cases. And according to intel sources the info he leaked caused the deaths of at least 3 assets possibly as many as 40. Not a hero by any definition of the word

Chuck Norris. black belt in Tang Soo Do
8th Dan black belt in Taekwondo
brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Norris was born in Ryan, Oklahoma on March 10, 1940,[6] the son of Wilma (née Scarberry) and Ray Norris, who was a mechanic, bus driver, and truck driver.[7] Norris has English, and smaller amounts of Scottish, Welsh, and German, ancestry; he is also said to have Cherokee roots.[1][8][9] Norris was named after Carlos Berry, his father's minister.[10] He has two younger brothers, Wieland (deceased) and Aaron (a Hollywood producer). When Norris was sixteen, his parents divorced,[11] and he later relocated to Prairie Village, Kansas, and then to Torrance, California, with his mother and brothers.[1]
Norris has described his childhood as downbeat. He was nonathletic, shy, and scholastically mediocre.[12]
He joined the United States Air Force as an Air Policeman (AP) in 1958 and was sent to Osan Air Base, South Korea. It was there that Norris acquired the nickname Chuck and began his training in Tang Soo Do (tangsudo), an interest that led to black belts in that art and the founding of the Chun Kuk Do ("Universal Way") form.[13] When he returned to the United States, he continued to act as an AP at March Air Force Base in California.
Norris was discharged in August 1962. He worked for the Northrop Corporation and opened a chain of Karate schools including a storefront school in his then-hometown of Torrance on Hawthorne Boulevard. Norris' official website lists celebrity clients at the schools; among them Steve McQueen, Chad McQueen, Bob Barker, Priscilla Presley, Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond.[14]



Norris was defeated in his first two tournaments, dropping decisions to Joe Lewis and Allen Steen and three matches at the International Karate Championships to Tony Tulleners. By 1967 Norris had improved enough that he scored victories over the likes of Lewis, Skipper Mullins, Arnold Urquidez, Victor Moore, Ron Marchini, and Steve Sanders. In early 1968, Norris suffered the tenth and last loss of his career, losing an upset decision to Louis Delgado. On November 24, 1968, he avenged his defeat to Delgado and by doing so won the Professional Middleweight Karate champion title, which he held for six consecutive years.[11] In 1969, he won Karate's triple crown for the most tournament wins of the year, and the Fighter of the Year award by Black Belt Magazine.
Norris made history in 1990 when he was the first Westerner in the documented history of Tae Kwon Do to be given the rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master.[15] In 1999, Norris was inducted into the Martial Arts History Museum's Hall of Fame. On July 1, 2000, Norris was presented the Golden Lifetime Achievement Award by the World Karate Union Hall of Fame.

Norris created the martial art Chun Kuk Do, which is based primarily on Tang Soo Do and includes elements from every combat style he knows. Like many other martial arts, Chun Kuk Do includes a code of honor and rules to live by. These rules are from Chuck Norris's personal code. They are:[citation needed]
I will develop myself to the maximum of my potential in all ways.
I will forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements.
I will continually work at developing love, happiness and loyalty in my family.
I will look for the good in all people and make them feel worthwhile.
If I have nothing good to say about a person, I will say nothing.
I will always be as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
I will maintain an attitude of open-mindedness.
I will maintain respect for those in authority and demonstrate this respect at all times.
I will always remain loyal to my God, my country, family and my friends.
I will remain highly goal-oriented throughout my life because that positive attitude helps my family, my country and myself.



In addition to being an actor, Chuck Norris is also a philanthropist. He is known for his contribution towards organizations such as Funds for Kids, Veteran's Administration National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans, the United Way, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the form of donations as well as fund-raising activities.[34]
His time with the U.S. Veterans Administration as a spokesperson, was inspired by his experience serving the United States Air Force in Korea. His objective has been to popularize the issues such as Pensions and Health care, that concern hospitalized war veterans. Due to his significant contributions, and continued patriotism, he received the Veteran of the Year award in 2001 at the American Veteran Awards.[34]
Norris also established the United Fighting Arts Federation and KickStart in 1990. As a significant part of his philanthropic contributions, the organization was formed to develop self-esteem and focus in at-risk children as a tactic to keep them away from drug-related pressure by training them in martial arts. Norris hopes that by shifting middle school and high school children's focus towards this positive and strengthening endeavour, these children will have the opportunity to build a better future for themselves.[34][35]
In 2005, Norris founded the World Combat League (WCL), a full-contact, team-based martial arts competition, of which part of the proceeds are given to his KickStart program.[34]
Additionally, Norris supports the Vijay Amritraj Foundation, which aims at bringing hope, help and healing to the defenceless and innocent victims of disease, tragedy and circumstance in India. Through his donations, he has helped the foundation support Paediatric HIV/AIDS homes in Delhi, a blind school in Karnataka, and a mission that cares for HIV/AIDS infected adults, as well as mentally ill patients in Cochin.[36]

Hey I know let's tear apart everyone's choices and call them non-heroes

There are uncomfortable aspects to Sam Steele and the mounties in general. (My own submission)
I'm sure that if I dig hard enough I can find some evidence of scandal or feet of clay in the politics and personal life of every submission. They were all human. From Audie Murphy to General Patton, to Simo Haya. Let's just tear away. boy this will be FUN.

The OP didn't ask for submissions of HEROES anyway. it asked for Badasses. some of the biggest Baddasses I can think of were not necessarily heroic.

OR we COULD just let everyone's submissions stand and enjoy the fun.

IF we keep going on about Assange I'm affraid I'm going to have defend Sam Steele service with the South African Constubulary.


I'm sure those who submitted their personal entrants don't want those entrants trashed.

You have a hate on for the creator of wikileaks We get it. Move on.
