Badass Creed

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Heroic and villainous Badass Creeds.

Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember
Nothing is true.
Where other men are limited by morality or law, remember
Everything is permitted.
We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins.
Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

-- And shorter and simpler:
Who Dares Wins

Sometimes, the Badass doesn't need a longcoat, or a motorcycle, or a pair of glasses. Sometimes, you just need the right words. Maybe you're a badass who's part of an order of badasses with similar goals. Or maybe you're a lone badass, and you've come up with a credo that explains who you are to others. Either way, you've got a Badass Creed, that sums up everything you are and what you believe in.

See also In the Name of the Moon. If it only gets said once, it's probably a Badass Boast instead. Saying it to reinforce your goal or similar can have the same effect as a Theme Music Power-Up, and can precede or punctuate a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
