Top 10 Most Badass Jobs

The Top Ten

1 Firefighter

Only position you can break into somebody else's house without a search warrant! Firefighters break all sorts of things, crawl through an unknown environment seeing almost nothing and feeling heat, cut up cars, and do all kinds of other things that many people think aren't possible! We're the people everyone else looks to (yes, even other jobs on this list) when they get themselves in trouble even those "badass" fighter jet pilots crash their planes every once in a while and who's there to take care of it? Firefighters!

They literally do everything. Take people from burning buildings, rescue people, provide medical care to those dying, cut open cars, help those who are in car accidents, and get PAYED good money to do it?

Very good for either female or male. I'm going to make the mother in my book, Hollie Starr, a firefighter.

The most flexable job to work, work with a group of team you have to love or get left behind, and to work for your govement who doesn't want to do that.

2 Soldier

Being a Marine is the most badass job in the world. You are all over the world either destroying cities and killing bad guys or giving humanitarian aid.

Not only is it always depicted in movies, it's also one of the hardest jobs to get.

The hours away from home show the Sacrifice some people are willing to make

No navy seal is the most badass job as well as any other special force unit

3 Astronaut

I can't stand those little kids whose dream jobs is astronaut nowadays. You don't get paid that much, is a very dangerous job, and is very very boring. If you are one of those kids think 4 times again if you really want to become one.

Undoubtedly, Astronaut is the most badass job ever. You need to be very competent, otherwise you will be useless in space. There is no place more hazardous, than space. If you screw up, nobody will be able to save you.

I'm kind of jealous of Neil Armstrong. After he walked on the moon, when he and his friends are going out to eat and they tell stories about themselves he could just say. "I walked on the mooon" and that would be it.

I read the military answer (oh yeah, that has to be the best.) Then I read the spy one (no, a spy looks cooler.) But an astronaut? Forget the other two, an astronaut murderstomps!

4 Police Officer

The system is broken, and those who think it's so heroic are both wrong and right. Yes, police can be helpful but I have never met a helpful police officer, and why are there so many stories if police brutality? Hmmm

If you are a cop you are allowed to kill some people in peacetime. Also there is a chance of rioters and mafias attacking you.

Fight crime, protect people from evil, incredible tactical and weapons training... An unsung hero, the epitome of a bad ass.

They are just stern with me I got a stern talking to for being bad by losing my cool/temper

5 Spy

People think being a spy would be full of glory and stuff. Really, you're stuck in 3rd world hellholes for up to YEARS at a time. Doesn't sound like my cup of tea.

Easily the most badass- combines the killing skills and toughness of the military with the smooth man-charm of a CEO

You get to sneak around and go James Bond on people. Cool gadgets and bad-ass cars.

Well, being a spy requires a lot of skills and experience and it's not easy to be one

6 Ice Cream Truck Driver

Cruising down the streets with my I.C truck delivering ice creams, smiling at kids. Went to the park to get them scoop... what I'm I doing lol

Absolutely the most badass job. I mean, think of all those kids whose lives you're touching.

I can almost feel the badass radiating off of the ice cream truck every time get ice cream

Cruising around and delivering smiles to children's faces is what REAL men do!

7 Lawyer

Thought they were illegal in the USA back in the day

Be that ace attorney!

Really a badass job.

The defense rests.

8 Rock Star

So totally, you dress like whatever you want and still sing your heart out. travel the wourld, and lots of other things!

Imagine sing to hundred people and rocking it wow.

I like and want this job so bad

Nirvana... do I have to continue

9 Butcher

If you've ever met an old school butcher? Guanteed to whoop anyone on the list. So much that everyone would be sure to keep their distance. Also, they come with the real 1000 yard stare.

Experts in matters of impalement

10 Judge

The Newcomers

? Power Lineman

Instant death in your hands all day everyday, work in ny on hurricane sandy one day, two days later hanging under a chopper longline in California. Ya, it pays more than your job but don't worry you couldn't handle it.

Sshh it's Been a secret for decades! Even though it's the most important, most used, most dangerous, highest payed! Job in the world. Without power we are cave men

No comment necessary, if you don't know, they are doing their job

I just charged my phone so Thanks

The Contenders

11 Animator

Deserves its title. You work countless hours to keep drawing so that when filmed, they appear to move, and it only gets harder with deadlines and stuff.
Not to mention the RSIs we don't often hear about.

Yup, and I enjoyed cartoons, and when I learned this, it changed my view,

Would love to do this

I love drawing

12 Cowboy

Wild, wild, west job. Nothing gets adrenaline pumping faster than leading a horse, with hands,legs, and voice while attempting to herd another animal. Total BADASS job.

If you can brand cattle, repair fences, and then wake up in the middle of the night again to help a sheep give birth, than you're a tough man.

Won the west! Might be time to play Cowboys and black lives matter soon

Through horses round bad ass

14 Guitarist

Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you surprise your friends with an amazing guitar solo.

Very hard instrument to learn it shows dedication

Playing them facemelters likes its nothing

Like drumming, it’s a musical job that involves lots of repetitive movement, which can cause injuries.
It’s important to be healthy when doing this.
But at the same time you’re entertaining the audience.
Badass alright.

15 Weapons Tester

Get to shoot guns all day. What more do you want from life?

Make sure the military has good weapons for war bad ass

I love guns so this job would be awesome

My dream job for sure

16 Criminal Profiler

Definitely the most badass of them all - to be able to put yourself in the mind of a criminal and not become one? That take some serious skill, not to mention a huge time commitment (and a badge and gun to top it off).

Well I really wanted to be something realted in crimanels expect a cop

17 Martial Artist

UFC guys kick ass. I did the training and it was legit.

Tuffest and most badass job, yet so fun

Like firefighters, they do nothing but try to help people all day

Doctor is best

They make quick deductions to save people’s lives

Saving people’s lives is pretty badass

19 Movie Director

The best job in the world

20 Teacher

If there were no teachers, nobody would be thinking about what they would want to be when they grow up. Teachers are underappreciated and under-paid. Give them more credit!

Without teachers who are you now?

.teaching is the profession of prophets. it is highly respectable job. I like it.

21 Government Assassin

A government assassin? Badass times 3

Oh my gosh I want this job, I want it bad.

You're a ghost! In. Out. You don't exist 10/10

Nothing can be badass than being a govt assassin

22 Pornstar

I am a pornstar and I really enjoy my work. I prefer doing lesbian porn . totally bad ass. 69/10

23 Heavy Metal Drummer

Drumming of any kind involves fast repetitive motion with the hands that can cause repetitive injuries, which are common, and performers exert so much energy and sweat, and can end up being dehydrated.
It takes planning, practice and preparation.
It's pretty tough anyway.

24 Lumberjack

I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay! I sleep all night and I work all day!

Cocaine is a hell of a drug

Lumberjacks are badass. no. questions. asked.


25 Fighter Pilot

Heck yeah, Neil Armstrong was a fighter pilot in Korea before he walked on the moon. And those Brits who flew spitfires and won the Battle of Britain were total badasses!

They make it rain on the bad guys
