There are many kinds of badasses. A badass can be a good guy or a bad guy, a man or a woman, a brawler or an acrobat. One of the main traits of a badass is the ability to kick lots of ass. However, being able to kick ass does not make you a badass. Badass is a frame of mind. A badass gets shit done, and does it in a really cool way. Badasses take down anyone who crosses them without even thinking about it. The only thing that can stop a badass from reaching his or her goal is death, but some badasses don't even let death stop them. A badass generally lets his or her actions speak for themselves. Badasses live by their own rules.

Generally meaning a male who does things perceived by the world as cool or awesome. Can also be used as an adjective for similar effect.

Unbeknownst to most, the original meaning of badass came from the one and 'Kboss' where all meanings of badass came from. His kidney-stealing antics have given him world wide renown as a badass.
