1 John Rambo - Rambo Series John James Rambo is a fictional character in the Rambo saga. He first appeared in the 1972 novel First Blood by David Morrell, but later became more famous as the protagonist of the film series, in which he was played by Sylvester Stallone.

Real MAN from the 80's. I miss that era. John Rambo isn't Badass, he's the biggest Badass character on screen. Iconic personality!

How on Earth can anyone challenge the Legendary Caliber of John Rambo!?
He deserves the #1 Spot in this List.

Talk To The Hand.

He could chop anyone on this list in half in five seconds. He absolutely rules.

I'm pretty sure if he didn't get burned by lava, he would be way stronger than what he already is. But he still is strong enough to take on anyone from this list. He should be 1st.

He should be 1st. The most popular badass character. He kicks ass everyone in 5 movies.

Darth Vader is The real definition of BADASS!
He is very stronger, Dark, Evil, smart!...

4 Tony Montana - Scarface Antonio Raimundo "Tony" Montana is a fictional character and the villain protagonist of the 1983 film Scarface.

7 King Leonidas - 300

Badass quote: you should eat your breakfast when it's still hottie, for tonight we'll dine in hell"

"THIS IS SPARTA"- king leonidas kicks a persian into a pit to fall to his death

Maximus from Gladiator is way more "badass."

The real one though.

8 Tyler Durden - Fight Club

I think the coolest thing about Tyler is that he was this big buff hot guy in the narrators mind that was created to embody all the things he wanted to be. But in creating Tyler, the nerdy little narrator inadvertently becomes Tyler and does all this crazy badass stuff, with his (proverbial) eyes closed.

Most Badass Moment: Beating the crap out of the narrator after he tried to shoot him.

Tyler Durden is by far the coolest, intelligent and badass movie character of all time. He should be at the number 1 spot.

You are not your job, you are not the money in your bank account!
