Top 10 Most Bad-Ass Movie Characters

My original list had Neo from the Matrix at number 10 but I realized that was stupid. Let’s be serious for a second, Neo? Well, I replaced him with someone worthy, and he is followed by some pretty bad-ass dudes……no chicks, just dudes.

Here are the top 10 most bad-ass movie characters of the past 20 years:

10. Achilles (Brad Pitt), Troy

You know you are bad-ass when you can put a battle on hold while you pimp some ladies. As if that wasn’t enough, when he finally arrived at the battle he ended it with one thrust of his sword.

9. Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), Batman Begins

Batman, the classic billionare hero with a Christian Bale twist. He can take on an army of ninja’s, he is buff, he has a sweet bat mobile this time around, he pimps girls, and he makes the cape look good.

8. Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), Fight Club

The only bad guy on the list, actually, he’s not really a guy he is a make believe person. Anyone who starts a club where you just fight people for fun is pretty gnarly. I wouldn’t want to fight him, or anyone on this list.

7. Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Lord of the Rings

The man saves the world for crying out loud, what else do you want me to say? Oh yeah, he gets the girl in the end, and he becomes king.

6. Eric Roberts (Wesley Snipes), Blade

This movie is off-the-map unrealistic, but its so entertaining. Eric Roberts, aka Daywalker, is half man half vampire, and takes vampires down with no problem. He has super-human strength, has a sweet arsenal of weapons, and drives a bad-ass car.

5. The Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Terminator 2

It’s Arnold!!! He’s a terminator, his job is to be bad-ass!!! He rides a motorcycle, and wears awesome shades, and dominates. Not to mention the great lines he uses like: “Asta la vista baby!”

4. King Leonidas (Gerard Butler), 300

300 dominating chiseled warriors take on an army of 1 million in their underwear and make it look easy. Whoever the leader is, I don’t care if it’s Whinnie the Pooh, he is going to be bad-ass. Well it’s the king of the Spartans, and he doesn’t give a shit about dying, in fact, he’s looking forward to it.

3. John McClane (Bruce Willis), Die Hard

The one that started it all. I look back and remember John McClane being the original bad-ass. Non-stop action, killing people left and right, avoiding explosions, best of all, he did it without wearing shoes!

2. Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe), Gladiator

When I need to get pumped up for a game, I throw on Gladiator and watch the second fight scene after he becomes a slave. He walks out of the tunnel and bows to all of his opponents, then dominates them. It doesn’t get much better, well, a little better.

1. William Wallace (Mel Gibson), Braveheart

It simply does not get better. He not only dominates on the battlefield but his speeches inspire everyone, including people who are watching the movie. Every time I watch this thing I get the chills, and then I want to get up and fight a bunch of people.



  1. great list, I pretty much agree! mmm, and you had brad pitt on multiple times, so I’m definitely on board, lol.

  2. That’s a pretty good list, but of course people will have different opinions. I really don’t see Christian Bale taking a spot in the top ten. Plus your write up on him is a little, hmm, how you say, homosexual. I would have liked to see Jet Li up there from his role in Lethal Weapon 3. I know he’s a villain and he dies, but seriously the guy is a bad ass. It took two guys to kill him. He kept fighting with a metal pole through his body. The guy took apart a gun and in a one on one fight would have killed every person in that movie. Sadly, he didn’t get a chance to kill Joe Pesci or Chris Rock. Nice work Bueller, just stay away from the homo comments. And by the way, it was Frodo and Sam who saved the world, mainly Sam. RUDY, RUDY, RUDY


  4. John McClane had a chance to be number 1, but because Die Hard 2 & 3 sucked ass, his ranking suffered.

  5. all good, but, Where’s chuck norris?

  6. Chuck Norris isn’t on the list because you can’t compare him to these other fools. He is above the list. I’m wearing Chuck Norris underwear.

  7. wasn’t chuck norris farther back than 20 years ago?

  8. Barb Wire, Pamela Anderson as a bounty hunter, she kicks-ass. Alex Munday (Lucy Liu)? What about Jean Grey (Famke Janssen)? Abigail Whistler from Blade Trinity? Lara Croft? Elektra? Domino Harvey? Talk about inspiration, you get off on watching dudes… there are only dudes on this list. Is this a gay site?

  9. wow, thats powerful stuff jerkoffer. i am pretty sure its not a gay site. great article guys. if it was a gay site they def would have included Neo from the Matrix. so you watch those movies or you just researched them? it sounds like you are a diva jerkoffer, a 100% queen. i would know.

  10. who honestly watches barbed wire and gets pumped up for a game? show your face panzy……jerkoffer?……hmmm, sounds interesting. your comments remind me of someone i know, the little devil?

  11. Oh wait. Yes, I have. I’m sorry, but I just don’t have it in me right now to type it all out again. Besides, it was just ramblings anyway. You didn’t want to hear me go on and on about this, right?

  12. Gladiator was such a bad movie thought! Bruce Lee got shuned too, WTF?

  13. Gladiator wasnt a bad movie, how can you call it a bad movie when it won so many awards? Barbed Wire, now thats a terrible movie.

    So where is Bruce Lee? where is Jet Li? do you guys have something against asians?


  14. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are way more bad ass than any of these other guys.
