The Bride (from Kill Bill) vs. Django

Best Revenge Fueled Badass from a Tarantino movie.

Ergh, two characters that both sum up "childishly serious". Wolverine's character is fifty layers of "let's make him more gritty and realistic" in decades of comic book writing, while Kratos should've just became god-Nemesis in the second one and got it over with. I vote Asura, whose revenge-fuelled rage is literally his power source in a battle against almost every mythical being in his universe. He does this without saying "bub", even once, and without mashing an incapacitated soldier into pulp for a key in his freaking POCKET.

I agree with the above posts, however. I would love to see Gutz/Gatsu and Inigo Montoya enter the debate. The only reason I would omit Batman is b/c Batman wins at everything, even "losing." Therefore, using him in an argument is unfair.
Also, I'd argue Batman isn't so much out for revenge--his parent's death just put crime into perspective for him and gave him impetus to move forward. Also, Batman stories put way too much focus on the death of his parents given how little it actually has to do with him. Other superheroes endured far worse tragedy, and their tragedies are much more connected to their calling. Superman being the last of his kind and Peter Parker being directly involved in his uncle's death being the two foremost examples. There's no reason the Wayne family should be anything more than a footnote in his origin story.
Or Kyle Ranier, for that matter. He finds his girlfriend chopped up in his fridge, and he DOESN'T go insane with the GL ring?! That is some monumental self-control there.

Blade too, plenty of jacked up crap in his life; although it's tough to recall what's canon with him anymore, haha...

Where's Batman?
The Punisher?
Adam Jensen?
MAX PAYNE?

I registered just for this, cause that debate was ridiculously lacking.

Frank Castle, The Punisher is the ultimate revenge driven badass.

He's essentially Batman with testicles. He has no super powers, no incredible bank account, no genius level intellect... just insane levels of righteous vengeance. That's his power - his devotion to killing evil people for being evil. He is Chaotic Good personified.

Hell, the villain for this film is just as valid a candidate and I'd say even more so.

Fuck me but how did I forget Indigo Montoya?

Wolverine never stood a chance against Kratos in that regard.

I think Alex Mercer from Prototype could be a contestant though. I mean, at first he just wants to know wtf is going on; but once he does realize it, he goes berserk. Of course, his preferred method of learing stuff is literally beating people to a pulp and eating them.

Wait, so the best revenge fueled badass ever has to be loveable? I call shenanigans regarding the setup.

Also, I'm not sure which is creepier, a man with claw gloves wearing a kirby shirt or a man with no shirt making my videos no longer work appropriate... haha.

Oh please, take your Batmans and Kratos's and Wolverine's. The true best revenge seeking badass is none other than Edmond Dantes.
The Count wins by so many miles the rest might as well have not even stepped off the starting line. No contest to see here, everyone move along.


Bonus points if it's this version:
This. +1 for referencing Gankutsou-one of the most badass adaptations of the Count. Only a pleb would rank somebody like Wolverine or Kratos as "great" revenge fueled characters. True, genuine, vengeance (like the Count brilliantly demonstrates) is a slow, painful, humiliating and ironic process. It's about destroying your enemy in ever sense of the word: physically, mentally, philosophically and most importantly....slowly.

Wolverine and Kratos? Please.

Like the stinger at the end, but let's be frank: The Count of Monte Cristo beats everyone else in the "revenge-seeking badass" category.
Forgetting Asura from Asura's are you? The one who BEAT UP BUDDHIST GOD just because he made his daughter cry. Although, that should probably under "Best Vengenance Seeking Father"

Probably one of the earliest revenge seekers :)
Also, manboobs?

How does the picture of Adam Jensen fit in to the debate? Is it because he was itching for vengeance on the mercs who messed up Sarif Industries in HR's prologue?

OT: Between the two choices of this episode, Kratos stopped being about revenge when his first game ended, then from the 2nd game on, he was a violent psychopath who'd kill everything in existence for a Klondike Bar. Wolverine has his vengeful moments, but he stands for a lot more than that now that he's also an Avenger and getting the X-Men back to their "school for the gifted" roots. Shame that Cyclops' character got shafted in the process.
It is generally accepted as a way of saying "I never asked for this."

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds. No superpowers to help him. He starts off being extremely petty about his revenge by skirting the Alliance's laws and stealing from Alliance targets as much as possible. Then he ups it to hiding a massively wanted pair of fugitives from the Alliance and spitting in their eye about it any chance he gets. Finally he tops it off by destroying an entire Alliance fleet by leading the results of their evil mind control experiments into the middle of said fleet, kicks the shit out of their best wet-work specialist, and exposes their monstrosity to humanity.
