Badass is defined in one word: Caravaggio.
Son of a bitch was the most bitchin' painter around 1600, and he brawled his way around Italy. He was so badass, the Pope fucking pardoned him for killing some dude in a bar, just so he could come back to Rome (he had been on the run) and paint for some Renaissance-era mercenaries who happened to just love epic art. Damn, son. Damn.
Art student: Professor, who was the guy who painted multiple grotesque beheadings SO BEAUTIFULLY?

Art professor: You must be referring to Caravaggio. *does not try to hide gleam of admiration in eyes* Damn, he was a badass.

Get a badass mug for your coworker Manafort.
The true American male. He is so insecure that it shows anytime he does anything, whether it's ordering yet another drink, buying a car way beyond his means, or treating women like shit. He is always looking for a fight, but if anyone stands up to him he whimpers away as the coward he is. He thinks that shouting at and beating women is the way a "man" handles these matters, and will sexually harrass any woman, regardless of age, in an effort to repress his homosexual desires.

A badass thinks and does whatever he sees on TV or hears on the radio. He wears whatever is advertised, and he drives a car meant to distract from his miniscule dick and inability to please a woman. Since he has not yet evolved independent thought, he does whatever the media tells him to. His "style" is a tasteless combination of whatever is popular at that given moment. He may have a Harley or a Corvette, or some other set of wheels that "gives" him style, because he sure as hell has none! All in all, the consummate loser.
Woman #1: All the men I meet seem to be badasses.
Woman #2: I have the same problem.
Woman #1: I have an idea, why don't we fuck each other, and not bother with these assholes ever again.
Woman #2: I'm way ahead of you, baby, if I had any panties on they would be sopping wet by now.
Woman #1: I can't believe I wasted so much time with these worthless fuckers!
Woman #2: Me neither. Forget about that, hon, and let's eat each others pussy!
Woman #1: Mmmmmmmmmmm!
Woman #2: Mmmmmmmmmmm!

Generally refers to a male. Confident, secure, uninhibited, so cool it hurts, hardcore, independent โ€“ all in one. I guess the character of James Bond is expected to be badass.
Sometimes referred to a woman. Means being down to earth, daring, confident unafraid of challenge (not intellectual but the challenge of real life experience โ€“ sports, extreme experiences, edgy actions). I guess they refer badass to a woman who looks quite tender and feminine so that they do not expect her to keep her senses facing a challenge. maybe a badass woman is an attractive female who behaves unexpectedly confidently in unusual situation.
