Most badass protagonist?

Recommended Posts


Another reason why Trevor is a badass protagonist, he did a very big favor to the whole universe as illustrated in this amazing GIF







Trevor is in his prime during his death lol

It's hard to go past Niko and Tommy. TLAD Johnny comes very close too.

What does a 'badass' mean?

1. Going by the definition online, a tough, uncompromising, or intimidating person difficult to deal with; mean-tempered; touchy. - Trevor seems to be the only name which fits here. The rest are not really that difficult to deal, since most protagonists are targeted for running errands either forcefully, or expected to run errands for money, power etc.


2. If I go by what urban dictionary says, then pretty much every protagonist seems close to "badass" by definition.


Only Niko seems to fails in meeting a couple of requirements, namely -- "A badass is not a jerk. A badass does not prey on the weak, and shows kindness in return to those who are kind" SEE: Killing Jeff's wife brutally, and several other murders, compared to Tommy and CJ, who have relatively low murder rate, when it comes to killing innocent, weaker people from story standpoint. Not talking about the sandbox in general.

"A badass does not make enemies or go looking for fights. They do not fights that aren't worth fighting either." -- Again Niko fails to meet this requirement in like many chase missions, or kill one or the other types, and murders of his former employers, where he deliberately chooses to kill them. Even at the start of the game, Niko chooses to fight and ends up killing Dardan and others for no justifiable reason, but simply because they harassed his cousin.

Lastly, "A badass does not give up. Badasses will always push themselves for the better, no matter how hard it gets." -- Niko never really seemed to let go off the past, but pushed himself further and deeper into violence, and killings despite the fact that he came to Liberty City to give up on his crime life. Tommy and CJ appear far more determined and strong in comparison. The endings in VC and SA prove this fact.


Its hard to say, but Niko definitely isn't the "most badass" compared to Tommy and CJ.
