Most Badass Jobs

The Top Ten

1 Firefighter

Search and rescue fire, medical, hazmat, active shooter response you name it they are there

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!

Firefighter is a kick ass job

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?

2 Marine or other Military related jobs


Imagine getting paid to jump out of planes and spread liberty with a machine gun. AIRBOURNE INFANTRY

Imagine being able to help your country and have mad respect!

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.

3 Astronaut

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.

Is there anything more badass than going off of the planet in something that shoots you faster than a bullet? Nope.

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.

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.

4 Police Officer

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

Awesome job! Just be careful because cops get killed everyday.

Bust criminals! Save lives!

5 Spy

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

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

I think that spy is THE BEST job you can have. Its awesome!

6 Ice Cream Truck Driver

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

Just remember, never trust a gray ice cream truck.

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.

7 Lawyer

Thought they were illegal in the USA back in the day

The defense rests.

Really a badass job.

Be that ace attorney!

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!

I like and want this job so bad

Imagine sing to hundred people and rocking it wow.

9 Butcher

Experts in matters of impalement

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.

10 Judge

The Newcomers

? Fashion Model

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, - Gregory

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

13 Pizza Maker

You don't understand this one. its badass

So badass...beating up that dough

Haha no one gets it. It's true!

Best job in the world

14 Guitarist

Playing them facemelters likes its nothing

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

Who doesn’t wanna be as cool as us guitarists

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

Weapon tester best damn job ever if there's any other job cooler than this it would be astronaut but who wouldn't want this badass job shooting guns and getting paid to do so

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

My dream job for sure

Make sure the military has good weapons for war bad ass

16 Criminal Profiler

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

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).

17 Martial Artist

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

Tuffest and most badass job, yet so fun

18 Movie Director

The best job in the world

19 Doctor

Doctor is best

They make quick deductions to save people’s lives

Saving people’s lives is pretty badass

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!

Yeah right

Without teachers who are you now?

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

I want this job!

22 Pornstar


Gay porn? Lol

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

Being a lumberjack comes with man responsibilities such as having a beard and drink any non lumberjack under the table and have crazy hot females because your such a man as you can tell the lumberjack is not your average man we base our selves off the great Chuck Norris the definition of man

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

aw yeah man representing COUNTRY

Cocaine is a hell of a drug

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!
