In Mystic Falls, badasses come in many shapes and forms — vampires, Originals, hybrids, werewolves, and even those yummy humans.

And on Season 4 of Vampire Diaries, we’re seeing an awful lot of them. Starting with the most obvious — Elena (Nina Dobrev), slayer of the vampire hunter Connor Jordan (Todd Williams). It was shocking, mainly because it’s her greatest fear as a vampire realized, but also because the way she did it was pretty ruthless. Maybe even a little ripper-esque. Watch out, humans!

And, speaking of humans, how about that Matt (Zach Roerig)? Trying to escape from the hunter with a hammer? That was pretty funny, right? Silly, human, badass techniques.

Then there was Stefan (Paul Wesley), who used a very vampy technique to take down his own brother with a shot of vervain. Then added insult to injury by stealing his daywalking ring to prevent Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from endangering the lives of Matt and April (Grace Phipps) — not to mention Connor. That’s one big badass move if we’ve ever seen one.

And let’s not forget Tyler (Michael Trevino), who stuck out his hairy neck for hybrid kind by lying to Klaus (Joseph Morgan). But, hey, it’s all in the name of that sire-bond-breaking program that he’s conspiring to use against the Original.

All in a day’s work when you live in Mystic Falls! But we want to know, when it comes to “The Killer” episode, who should be honored with the crown of Top Badass?
