Of course, the first-- and hardest –part will be agreeing on one such badass, especially with the limitation of movie badasses...though at least that'll help us narrow it down. I mean, Alucard hasn't been in any movies, so he's out, right?
Here are a few of my suggestions for badass anime characters who have been in movies:
I wonder if we could include badasses who are going to be in a movie? Then maybe Dragon Ball Evolution could actually be worth a damn by letting us nominate Goku. (Okay, okay, there have been Dragon Ball films, but they're unlikely to have been seen/heard of by anyone outside of the fandom, unlike the flicks mentioned above.)
Anyway, if you like the idea of a Vice Squad vote-skew, throw your votes for one of the above four or a different character in the comments here and I'll proclaim a winner towards the end of tomorrow. (If not, you can vote individually here.)
