POLL: Who’s Your Favorite Badass in a Long Coat?

COAT

The long coat has been a popular trope across media for many centuries.  In fact, there is a rather long entry describing it on TV Tropes.  It seems like everywhere you turn there’s a hero or a villain with a long coat fluttering dramatically behind them in the wind.  Here we’ve compiled a list of over 30 of the most popular badasses in long coats from TV.  Who is your favorite?

Like all of our other polls, we aren’t perfect and we may have missed some important ones.  If there’s enough demand we may add them to the list.  Derek Hale was forgotten in our No Shave November Poll, requested by numerous fans, added 2 weeks later, then beat all the competitors despite having a disadvantage by being added later.  Also like all of our other polls, the parameters of the question are up for interpretation.  What makes a “badass?”  Someone who kicks butt? Someone who can think their way out of a situation?  Someone who is brave in the face of adversity?  A hero? A villain? Something else?  So if you don’t think a character belongs on this list because they’re not “badass” enough, just remember someone out there probably disagrees with your definition of “badass.”  Vote for your favorite and let others vote for their’s.  Let’s have fun!

You can vote up to 5 times at a time.  Unlimited repeat voting!

Poll closes January 20th 11:59pm EST!
