One of my favorite literature troupes had always been the bad ass old guys. The mentor, the wise old sage, and when it down to business, they kick serious asses. I meant people like Gandalf, Albus Dumbledore, and Yoda are legendary as popular icons. They are not always the good guy either like Magneto. Nor do they require to posses superhuman power like Tywin Lannister (ASOIAF), Carl Fredricksen (Pixar-Up), and Aramaki the Ape (Ghost in the Shell). The only requirement is to be bad ass old guy like Uncle (Jackie Chan Adventure).
Now with the intro out of the way, I want to introduced my list of top 11 bad ass old guys from manga/anime/ and other eastern comics. To be on the list they kinda need to either look like an old person or have old person characteristics. I don't put people who is like hundreds of years old but look like any young person and act just like any young person >__<
But first let's mentioned who didn't make the list.
People that would have made the list if they had been in the manga/anime/eastern comic category. The west comic culture does provide us with quite aged badassery from time to time.
11th to 8th
7th to 4th
3rd to 1st
I hope you enjoyed my ranking. Maybe, I will do one for my favorite powers/abilities.
yes isaac netero deserves the 1st place....and me too i can't wait to see the fight animated ..
I recently rereading Vagabond. The 2 geezers in that one are pretty badass too. But I don't know where I would put them. Maybe before Sarutobi and after Ochi. Yagyu Muneyoshi scared the main character shitless while scratching his crotch must account for something. But other than that, there is little to go on.
And Mike and Hector (in a wheel chair) from Breaking Bad. Ummm... That badass grandpas right there.

I like your list.... I agree with the list for all the characters i know... only bradley would be no.1 for me...
haha Bradley... Well, he didn't get super high up because he isn't really followed the troupe of geezer. He act like a middle age man.
In terms of respect, this guy have rank first in my list.
Who is that? What manga?
