This list is meant to be a tribute to those in gaming who are truly badasses. The characters who intimidate you even though you know they're not real. The kind of players that go out of their way to live on the edge. And while I recognize this list is really subjective and silly, I think it'll be fun.
Do you know a character, game piece, or strategy in a game that is badass? Add it, and why you think it is a badass.

German battlecruisers. (Wrongly) outgunning their British counterparts and having super-armor they will take a heavy toll on the Grand Fleet.

Here it is folks. The game that makes it onto virtually every geeklist ever published. By definition a true badASS. Even though it generally represents higher parts of the anatomy.

Sigmar Heldenhammer. The patron god of the empire. Single handedly reunited the tribes of man to throw back the forces of Chaos, with little more than a big frickin' warhammer and no armor.

Exoida. This guy is a bad ass. Originally would cost a fortune to obtain and purchase all the cards, it's a little easier with only one piece remaining super rare. However, having these cards in your deck without building it around it just is bad ass. More importantly, if this guy's five cards are put into play at once, you win, no matter what. That is simply one bad dude. With a 1 : 658.008 chance of being obtained within the initial dealing.

Nathanael Greene

While all of the American officers are incorrectly rated as far better than their British counterparts, no American commander is scarier than Nathanael Greene. While he was a good general, his skills evolved over time as he began the war as an untested amateur soldier. In the game, however, he is the only character with a 100 rating in tactics and he has it from the very outset of the war. The best British general in the game is Henry Clinton, but he isn't quite a match for Greene. The pro-American rating system makes playing as America a walk in the park and playing as the British a true challenge.

Zylo the Werewolf.

A party member who you acquire about halfway through the game, Zylo starts off as a good guy to have around and then evolves from there. By the time that you get him fully developed, he will be able to traverse the battlefield well ahead of your other units, will kill most enemies in a single blow, and will normally not take more than 1 damage point from any attack. He is so good that you can send him alone to go check an entire enemy wing while you use everyone else on another part of the map. He is the Parmenio to your main character's Alexander.

Most players prefer the dragon, but I don't see how any other character in this game is fit to pick feces out of Zylo's fur.

Panzerfaust Man

As soon as you board a T-34 in this game, you will notice that every other German soldier has found a Panzerfaust. Despite being a much heavier and bulkier weapon than the MP-40 or the KAR-98, the Panzerfaust seems to improve the balance, intelligence, and toughness of the men who carry it.

Germans firing from anywhere rarely miss unless you are moving. The guys with Panzerfausts all must belong to some secret society which allows them to read the minds of their fellow tank killers. These guys attack in groups and they never choose bad attack positions, which makes them all the harder to eradicate.

These guys are so alert and fit for war then when your tanks launch a surprise attack on one of their bases, they respond by outfitting every German in the Wehrmacht with a Panzerfaust. Not only that, but you can register hits with your coaxial machine gun right into their stomachs and they'll still be able to keep their aim and fire. In what must be a misguided tribute to the Japanese, the Germans with Panzerfausts often jump from what must be 20 feet up, land on their feet, and start firing.

This guy. He's the biggest, meanest badass in wargaming this side of the Volga. Almost the entire hobby of wargaming owes its original genesis to him, his generals or some of his more ambitious ideas. And he was even a vegetarian and anti-smoker. Something for everyone here.
