I tend to find that those with less emotion are the 'badass' ones. The logical ones. Because there's little to argue against logic. You can't win against logic. For example, Shiroe from Log Horizon? Badass. Perhaps the emotion is irrelevant. But he's extremely logical, and that's his strong point. Sora from No Game No Life? Badass. Probably a little bit too casual, but he's still a badass.

It's not always like that. For male characters, I think they're badass if they wield a sword. For females, a bow and arrow.

I don't personally find Kirito to be much of a badass though. He wins through some emotional motivation that gives him strength. The badass thing about him is how good he is at the game. When SAO started after the beta, and he ignored everyone so he could level up and be the best... that was badass.

---

On the other side of the scale, resolve is a huge 'badass' indicator. And if resolve isn't emotionally-based, I don't know what is.

Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter is a badass. He wants revenge - big time. That's his resolve.
Vegeta from DBZ is a badass. He just wants to be stronger that Goku, whatever the cost.

---

Also, lastly, those associated with the colour blue (more like azure), is a badass. Not in every case, but Sasuke from Naruto, Kageyama from Haikyuu!!, Ene from Mekakucity Actors, Saito from Zero no Tsukaima, Xenovia from Highschool DxD, Garrus from Mass Effect... the list continues. Don't actually know why blue is so badass...

One of the reasons why I use Kirito is that he's a very...decisive character. Some say he is badass, but others say he is wish fulfillment. But is badass wish fulfillment in itself or not?


I'd say so, being able to do whatever you want whenever you want, it kind of implies that you will fulfill your wishes, don't ya think?


You misunderstood me. That isn't the definition of wish fulfillment. Wish fulfillment implies that an author panders to an audience by creating a character they can project themselves onto or something of the sort.

There's plenty of character who do what they want that in the end earns the ire of the fanbase.


Oh, sorry! i did misunderstand you, i didnt think that you where meaning it in that way T^T

The blue is just you. I don't find blue to be particularly badass, but red on the other hand...
I get why people would say Sora is a badass for his flippant disrespect, but in the same vein I feel Sora isn't badass for that as well. Characters who can't bother to act polite aren't badass in my book, and Sora would be a jerk in normal situations.

Near came off bratty. L was just eccentric, but he was a lovable eccentric.

He is not superior to L, he just finished what L started.

A person whose mere appearance make me question the humanity itself. A person who doesn't give a fuck who you are.

So in context: Ultra-cool motherfucker

There's no one definition. It's up to the individual.

Kirito is not badass to me. He seems like the nice guy who wants to help everyone. He might be badass to mother Teresa.

Someone who can stay cool when things are tough or someone is just a killing machine.

Its all about perspectives you could say he finished what L started or you COULD say he finished what L could not.

It's even stated by Near himself that L was superior than either of them individually.
