Capes have the obvious effect of making the wearer look larger and more imposing. Thus artists often use them as a way to make characters look capable, powerful, and in charge. Just look at Batman over there. He wouldn't look half as awesome without his cape.
The reasons for this are many. The color might provide a fetching counterpoint to the rest of their clothes, or else blend with them to give the wearer a dynamic silhouette. It may make them look even bigger than they really are. In the right conditions, they can wave in the wind and look dramatic and striking. Lack of wind can be accommodated with a Cape Swish.
But the main reason for this is that in the days of circuses, the strongmen often wore tights and a cape, thus the association with toughness in characters. The trope was then grandfathered into the present day by Superheroes.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This can apply to any character, whether it be a hero, sidekick, villain, and it doesn't even have to be a superhero setting.
This can also count if the actual capes have some sort of abilities. Thus the capes themselves are badass.
Often overlaps with Superheroes Wear Capes, All-Encompassing Mantle. Does not necessarily overlap with The Cape. May be used as an Improvised Parachute, but contrast Cape Snag.
Compare Badass Long Robe, Badass Longcoat, Black Cloak, Scarf of Asskicking, Caped Mecha, Ominous Opera Cape, Pimped-Out Cape.

Batman: Arkham Asylum. Not only does it look badass, but it also lets you glide, either to cover ground quickly or to kick someone in the face and you can slap someone in the face with it to stun them. Fun fact one developer at Rocksteady spent two years crafting Bats’s cape making sure it was fluid as possible and tuning the wind effects to it so it would be extra badass.

Subverted in Watchmen, where Hollis Mason recounts that Dollar Bill's cape got him killed: It was caught in a revolving door when he tried to prevent a bank robbery, making him an easy target for the gun-toting robbers. What makes it even more tragic is that the costume was designed by people sponsoring him for public appeal. Mason speculated that if he designed it himself he may have realized how bad an idea it was.
He also considered wearing one himself when he first became a masked vigilante but found it got in the way.
Oddly, both Captain Metropolis and Hooded Justice wore capes easily twice the length of Dollar Bill's, yet never seemed to suffer any consequences.

Several superpowered individuals in Worm wear capes (surprisingly few, given that one term for superpowered individuals is "cape"). Most of them are either notably powerful or otherwise "deserving" of the cape (such as Eidolon), but others (including Skidmark) are pointedly not. At one point, Taylor notes that few capes can actually "pull off" wearing a cape.

Dark Souls III has another plethora of capes, including the Fallen Knight, Sellsword, Black Hand, Drang, and Exile sets, but the biggest roles are played by those of the Abyss Watchers, the first Lord of Cinder you fight (they're a dull purple and, given the Abyss Watchers' job, covered in black Abyssal stains), and the red one sported by Slave Knight Gael (which, in the second phase of his boss fight, is wreathed in blood-coloured fire and deals contact damage).

The Master of Magnetism, Magneto, rocks an imposing purple/red cape in almost every incarnation.
It seems that this is genetic; both of his magical descendants (His daughters, Scarlet Witch, Polaris and his grandson, Wiccan) rock dark-red cloaks/capes. (Wiccan's is a badass tattered cloak)
In an issue of New Mutants where Magneto fought the Avengers, we learn that his cape is laced with metallic fibers that his magnetic powers allowed him to use in order to break Hercules' grip on him.

In The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Aragorn eschews the Badass Longcoat he's been wearing for the whole trilogy for some kingly armor and a long, black-and-red cape.
Before that, he spent much of the adventure wearing an elven cloak like the rest of the Fellowship, but the cape on his King of Gondor getup is much more badass.
There's also the Men of Rohan, who have this as part of the uniform.

Dark Souls:
Knight Artorias in Dark Souls DLC has the tattered remnants of a blue one when you fight him. He's considered one of the biggest badasses
Dark Souls II has a lot of capes, from Benhart and Creighton's grey ones to the ragged white stuff hanging off the Heide Knights to the red cloak of the Drakeblood Knights, but the two that are probably most notable are the dark red cloak on the Drangleic set (since it's found quite early in the game and has really good stats) and the black cape on the King's Set (since Vendrick is so important to the story).
Dark Souls III has another plethora of capes, including the Fallen Knight, Sellsword, Black Hand, Drang, and Exile sets, but the biggest roles are played by those of the Abyss Watchers, the first Lord of Cinder you fight (they're a dull purple and, given the Abyss Watchers' job, covered in black Abyssal stains), and the red one sported by Slave Knight Gael (which, in the second phase of his boss fight, is wreathed in blood-coloured fire and deals contact damage).

Kamina of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann wears a cape that has an affinity for blowing in the Dramatic Wind. Simon later uses it too. It blows dramatically even in space.
Kamina is the embodiment of this trope.
A humongous version of said cape was also used by the Super TTGL in The Movie. And by humongous, we mean the biggest damn cape ever conceived of in fiction or otherwise.

Practically every Lord character in Fire Emblem has one, with few exceptions. There doesn't seem to be any particular purpose behind them, save for aesthetics. Ike claims it's there if he needs something to sleep on in a pinch but he's a mercenary rather than a lord.

Cloak from Cloak & Dagger, of course, is a cloak rather than a cape. In fact, he's nothing but a cloak. He's also otherworldly, dark, and conflicted.
And Cloak's Evil Counterpart Ecstasy manages a costume that is both this and Stripperiffic at the same time.

Ruby, of the titular RWBY group, wears a beautiful, insanely long red cape that would be very difficult to walk with in Real Life (to the frustration of many cosplayers.) It's okay, though, because the series' setting runs on Rule of Cool and there's a lot of Dramatic Wind in her trailer to make said cape flap around and look pretty. She even wears it with her school uniform, which nobody comments on.

Many characters wear one in Fist of the North Star, but Raoh's take the top spot, as in one occasion it was crucial into saving his life: Rei has launched an attack that would have killed Raoh at the price of exposing himself to a deadly counterattack, and Raoh foiled him by throwing the cape on his face and landing a killing blow while he was distracted. Extra points since Raoh often rides a horse too.

Wardens in The Dresden Files have gray cloaks as their uniform, and dear god can they be badass.
This is even more cool because they are enchanted so that they never become stained or dirty, including the mention that blood splattered on the cloaks during combat just flows off the fabric. This means that no matter how hard or dirty the fight, a Warden's cloak of office is always recognizable to ensure their authority.

Power Rangers
Those who grew up with the series will remember the Magna Defender from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy who had this and an awesome horned helmet along with a Cool Sword and pump-action energy rifle/shotgun.
The Magna Defender could also count as a Legacy Character in series, the season was in anyway.
What, no love for Power Rangers Mystic Force? Six of them had capes in ranger form and the core five had them as part of their team uniforms.

Parodied in the Discworld book A Hat Full of Sky. Tiffany, under the influence of a hiver, goes out to purchase a cloak for herself. The store owner guides her to two options: a thick, practical cloak, and a thin, midnight black cape that billows dramatically at the slightest wind but is too fragile for any proper use. Being Not Herself, Tiffany picks the latter. Once she comes back to herself, she notes that it's very pretty but useless for a working witch.

Dark Souls II has a lot of capes, from Benhart and Creighton's grey ones to the ragged white stuff hanging off the Heide Knights to the red cloak of the Drakeblood Knights, but the two that are probably most notable are the dark red cloak on the Drangleic set (since it's found quite early in the game and has really good stats) and the black cape on the King's Set (since Vendrick is so important to the story).

Mister Miracle has a large green cape. The original MM costume was that of a circus performer, which explains its presence, but when Scott Free took up the mantle, his cape was for more than just looks. It's been an Improvised Parachute and a portable shield and shelter against all sorts of attacks. Its size means that it can be wrapped around the wearer (and maybe another person or two) to provide all-round protection if needed.

In the Marvel Universe: Eric Payne, Devil-Slayer. He wears an item called a Shadow Cloak (looks more cape-like or cloak-like, Depending on the Artist) that can teleport himself and others across space and to various dimensions, and from which he can draw out various weapons from other places or worlds. Its main limitation is that it can't handle items or people exceeding 1,000 pounds at once. Sword? Yes. M-1 tank? No.
Hellcat briefly wore a Shadow Cloak during a stint with the Defenders. She eventually decided it was more trouble than it was worth and folded it in on itself until it disappeared.

In The Dark Knight Trilogy, Batman's cape isn't just for making him look imposing. Made of a special "memory cloth" that can form rigid shapes when electrified, Batman uses it as a hang glider (of sorts).

While D of Vampire Hunter D is already a badass alone with his skill, his cape only doubles, if not triples that level of coolness. And Meier Link from the second movie deserves a mention as well.

Later, in a fight, he whips it off and uses it to entangle his opponent's weapon, later grousing that he liked that cape. His friend assures him that they'll find him something even more flashy.
His replacement cape has embedded flatscreens, which he uses to display a chorus line of dancing Jansons.

In the Teleapth RPG serie
At the Psy Academy, a student's cape more or less has the same role as a belt does in martial arts, first students have a red cape, then a blue cape and then a black cape while professors have a white cape. In the first game, your character has just earned their black cape. By the time you reunite in the second game your friends Guy and Anya have theirs. You can also snark at another classmate for still being a blue cape after the four-year Time Skip between chapters 1 and 2.
Knights also wear a cape, standard mechanic soldiers wear gray ones, mechanic captains and marksmen wear red ones and the Psy Academy guards wear white ones.
In Servants of God the Hero wear a brown cape while Griffin and Ravinale guards wear white ones.

Captain Harlock wears a cape. Oh boy, does he ever. It's often very hard to tell what ratio of man to cape he is, but he's definitely all pirate.
Badass capes tend to be a vital part of badass captains in Leiji Matsumoto's works. Queen Emeraldas herself also wears one of these as does Captain Bainas from Ozuma. Both in turn are distaff counterparts to Harlock.

Batman:
Batman wore his cape this way long before it was popular.
Robin always wears a cape. So does Red Robin. Nightwing doesn't. The presence of a cape has been given several justifications in canon beyond the theatrics; it contains armor, allows gliding and you can grab someone who's falling from the roof of a train.
Humorously when Nightwing took over as Batman for a while, he complained about how impractical the cape is, whining to Alfred that despite lightening it three times, it still felt like he was “wearing a circus tent on his back”.
Barbara Gordon -a. k. a. Batgirl- and Helena Wayne -Earth-Two Batman and Catwoman's daughter, a. k. a. Huntress- also wear their capes this way. It's to be expected since Batman trained them.
Batman Forever had Batman covering himself with his fire-proofed cape in order to shield himself from the flames of a burning building that Two-Face trapped him in. Only Batman could have pulled this off.
Batman's cape is so awesome that it has the ability to change size. (Particularly evident in Batman: The Animated Series or The Batman) When he's investigating for clues inside, the cape comes down to his knees, but when posing on a rooftop dramatically, it grows longer than his whole body. Now that's badass!
In one adventure with Arsenal, Batman shielded them from an explosion with his cape -which was made of triple-weave kevlar.
Batman also uses the cape to make himself appear more intimidating, which given his Terror Hero style suits him well.
Batman's cape serves various utilitarian uses
Gliding: Extended into a bat-winged shape to slow his descent while jumping vast distances or high heights.
Flame retardant: Robin issue 100 states his capes are nomex fire resistant.
Breaks up his form: Thus making a more difficult shape to determine for bad guys to fire at.

Kain Blueriver from Lost Universe believes this to be the case about himself and he's obviously trying to invoke the trope, though he's regularly mocked for it by others. His partner Milly in particular isn't shy about pointing out that it just gets in the way as a Trouble Shooter. At one point in the dub, he even mentions Captain Harlock by name.

RuneScape has a variety of normal capes that every player can wear, but there are some special ones that stand out, like the Fire cape which is made out of lava and has its own animation, and is given to players who beat the second hardest boss in the entire game. Also it has the Skill capes, given to players who max the level in any skill, which has the ability to increase the skill level of the player who operates it to 100 temporarily and come with their own emote.

In Soon I Will Be Invincible, supervillain Dr Impossible admits that his cape gets in the way during the inevitable fight scene, and is uncomfortable in hot weather, but feels that the psychological advantage imparted by a dramatically billowing cape outweighs the disadvantages.

Doctor Strange (2016)'s Cloak of Levitation is a very literal example: Not only does it look cool, but it possesses a semi-consciousness and is actually better in combat than the hero himself. (particularly the up-close-and-personal type of fighting - fancy a cape wrapped around your head, slamming you into the floor?). It's also the biggest Spotlight Stealer in the film. It may be the only badass cape more badass than its wearer.
In Avengers: Infinity War the Cloak not only protects Strange from Ebony Maw but it follows him to space and in Final Battle it even covers Infinity Gaunlet annoying the hell out of Thanos. Even when it gets ripped by the Titan, the Cloak of Levitation still works afterward.

Batman's cape is so awesome that it has the ability to change size. (Particularly evident in Batman: The Animated Series or The Batman) When he's investigating for clues inside, the cape comes down to his knees, but when posing on a rooftop dramatically, it grows longer than his whole body. Now that's badass!

Pony POV Series:
Trixie, as in canon, especially as she's Took a Level in Badass. She also justifies it, as she can use it for trickery.
The Crusaders get new versions of their capes during the Rumor's Arc. They were made by Entropy herself to protect them and have several features to that effect. They retain their power after the Rumors are beaten, which provides the Crusaders with extremely effective shields. Since they have Entropy's power when Scootaloo wraps her cape around her hoof and punches Goatcord with it, it makes him Ret-Gone.

Spider-Man:
Mysterio usually has a purple cape to go with his 'fishbowl' and green outfit, which both helps negate the cheesiness of the headgear and let him look more, well, mysterious. He's also got things attached to hold it on that have eyes on them.
Spider-Man 2099 even has a cape with a tattered webbing motif. It's not just for looks - he can glide with it, despite it being maybe three square feet of fabric.

Throughout the series, Tiber Septim, founder of the Third Cyrodiilic Empire, and his ascended god form, Talos, are both typically depicted as wearing one. This is especially true in their Nordic depictions, where they also have Badass Beards.

Half the characters from One Piece.
Crocodile, Hina, lots of High-up Marines, even Luffy once (on a cover). Although, theoretically they're not capes, just specially-draped coats.
Luffy gets a gladiator cape in the coliseum
Shanks and his crew all seem to sport Badass Capes.
Sogeking. In fact, the cape is why Luffy instantly knows he's a hero.
Diamante deserves special mention as his cape is a solid steel sheet, made to wave in the wind thanks to his Devil Fruit power.
The entire Vinsmoke Family have badass capes attached to their Raid Suits, though eldest daughter Reiji's cape is more like snazzy butterfly wings◊. Sanji himself gets a badass cape which grows to comic book size◊ one of the openings.

Many Final Fantasy characters love their capes, hero and villain alike. More prominent in the earlier games which took place in medieval settings with Yoshitaka Amano as the designer, once Final Fantasy VII hit and the series shifted to a modern setting designed by Tetsuya Nomura, the characters prefer to use Badass Longcoats. However, capes still appear.
Most noticeable in Dissidia Final Fantasy, where every character from Final Fantasy VI and earlier has some sort of cape in at least one of their outfits. The most Badass Cape arguably belongs to Golbez of Final Fantasy IV — it's so large it passes into All-Encompassing Mantle, whirls, flares, and flaps in the air with every movement he makes, and his block and intro animations are Cape Swishes.
And for downloadable content, Cloud and Zidane don capes, Cloud's from Kingdom Hearts, Zidane from the finale of his own game. Cloud's Kingdom Hearts cape is so badass it has become an Iconic Outfit.
Lightning in Final Fantasy XIII and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
Odin also sports one whenever he appears.

Parodied in The Fairly OddParents. Dark Laser tries to lure Timmy to the side of evil and one of his arguments is that he gets to wear a cape and that "chicks dig the cape". Laser himself also does look much more menacing with his cape.

A lot of characters in Game of Thrones wear them, including the Kingsguard, the Night's Watch, and a lot of characters from the North. Robb Stark stands out in particular, being a peerless general who wears a magnificent fur-lined cape in almost all of his scenes after his crowning. He even dies wearing a particularly elegant one. Members of the City Watch of King's Landing are known colloquially as "gold cloaks" because of their conspicuous gold cloaks. Roose owns a very dashing fur cloak, complete with a subtle Cape Swish in Season 2. He also fought with his men as can be seen with the blood on his face. However, this is defied by Bronn, who insists a cape slows you down in a fight. The Northmen have even an iconic style of capes and cloaks secured by belts crossing on chest. Nowadays, when you see these X-belts, you immediately think "Game of Thrones!". Daenerys wears a travelling cloak during her time conquering the slave cities and she has several half-cape ensembles once she reaches Westeros. Stannis is frequently seen with one.

Often present in leader characters in Warhammer 40,000. Also more than a few slightly odd examples, as many of the factions wear Powered Armor, the standard form requiring a power plant backpack. So most capes are tailored to pin to the shoulders but must have space cut out to allow the backpack to plug into the armors, also constricting the cape down to right about the waist. In some instances, they just pin the cape to the back of their (enormous) pauldrons, avoiding a complexified cut, but leaving the cape hanging a bit low on the back. Capes are just one, but perhaps the most common, of a few unusual uniforms worn over power armor, others include robes, togas, and in one case a lab coat of human leather (worn by a guy so evil and insane that he makes the rest look better in comparison).

According to Asterix, the ancient world considered red capes as indicators of office...Vitalstatistix, Getafix, Caesar, and Cacofonix (plus any visiting druid or chieftain) were hardly seen without such.

Child of the Storm has Thor, wearing his classic red cape.
Doctor Strange wears the famous Cloak of Levitation which, combined with his Glowing Eyes in his first two onscreen appearances (as himself), adds to his eerie persona. Later, when he dials down the eerie aspect, it just adds to his flair for drama.
Wanda Maximoff initially wears one, which billows dramatically during her first on-screen appearance - backlit by a pillar of flame which starts tearing through an army of the undead. Later, like her boyfriend Harry Dresden, she takes up the Badass Longcoat, to the point where the Cloak of Levitation refashions itself into a red Badass Longcoat when she inherits it with the position of Sorcerer Supreme.

Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam features Gundam-sized capes that provide two practical purposes; stealth [the capes are black, most of the series takes place in space] and a special coating that lets them absorb a few beam hits before being destroyed, sort of like extra ablative armour.

Ezio in Assassin's Creed 2 has a cape that actually does something - it decreases his notoriety so he doesn't get in near as much trouble with the law.
Specifically, there is the Plain Cape which is just for looks (the default cape, and completely plain as the name says); the Medici Cape which sets infamy to 0 (guards still react to suspicious behavior, but Ezio's infamy will never go up) when in Florence or Tuscany by identifying him as an ally of the Medici family (even when Savonarola is in control); and the Venetian cape which does the same for Venice and Romagna by showing his alliance with Agostino Barbarigo. The first cape is obtained along with the rest of the Assassin equipment while the other two are obtained during the story.
The Carnevale outfit comes with a cape and mask. Unfortunately, it is only worn during the Carnevale sequence of the game. Also, being the most visually elaborate cape, it does absolutely nothing.
One "secret" cape is the Auditore Cape, obtained after giving Maria 100 feathers scattered about Italy. It's also the least useful cape in the game, actually setting infamy to maximum in all cities.
On a more practical note, all capes help to conceal some of Ezio's weaponry when he's walking in public, specifically the hidden blade, which has a prominent and visible Assassin symbol on the wristguard despite being a "hidden" weapon.

Utsuho from Touhou is a nuclear-powered hell raven that wears a starry night cape over her wings. Fellow Final Boss Byakuren also wears a cape, if a considerably less mind-bending one. Then there's Wriggle, but, as a stage one boss, she's not exactly badass, with the cape merely standing in for her insect wings.
From PC-98 land is Yumemi Okazaki, who wears a black and red cape.
Sekibanki wears a red cape and mantle large enough to obscure the tenuous connection between her head and neck.

Robin always wears a cape. So does Red Robin. Nightwing doesn't. The presence of a cape has been given several justifications in canon beyond the theatrics; it contains armor, allows gliding and you can grab someone who's falling from the roof of a train.
Humorously when Nightwing took over as Batman for a while, he complained about how impractical the cape is, whining to Alfred that despite lightening it three times, it still felt like he was “wearing a circus tent on his back”.

Most noticeable in Dissidia Final Fantasy, where every character from Final Fantasy VI and earlier has some sort of cape in at least one of their outfits. The most Badass Cape arguably belongs to Golbez of Final Fantasy IV — it's so large it passes into All-Encompassing Mantle, whirls, flares, and flaps in the air with every movement he makes, and his block and intro animations are Cape Swishes.
And for downloadable content, Cloud and Zidane don capes, Cloud's from Kingdom Hearts, Zidane from the finale of his own game. Cloud's Kingdom Hearts cape is so badass it has become an Iconic Outfit.

Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z, one of the best examples of this can be found in the first Broly movie, especially when Piccolo's heroic save of Gohan from certain death (at the time) and he looked pretty damn awesome◊.
Piccolo's cape is attached to heavy weighted shoulder pads that he uses it for training and takes it off to fight or show it off. Gohan gets one just like it for the Cell Games. Later, in the film "Broly: Second Coming", Krillin wears Piccolo's cape while saving Gohan. In the film "Resurrection 'F'", Piccolo even uses his weighted cape as to defeat a one of Frieza's Soldiers by throwing it to a bunch of them◊ causing the weight to pull the soldiers (who were all flying at the time) down to the ground, while at the same time removing its weight so he could go all out against the remaining dumbstruck soldiers.
Arc System Works did an especially good job making Piccolo's cape so badass in Dragon Ball Fighter Z that it fills up half the screen◊ in his intro.
Kami and Dende wear capes in their role as Guardian God of Earth (since they are weaker than the Kais, the Gods of Earth probably wear capes to appear more godly).
In addition to Piccolo, Kami, and Dende, various Namekians also wear capes (apparently capes are popular fashion on Namek) though their not as badass as Piccolo's.
Young Adult Gohan while very silly clearly believes in The Cape as he wears one as his alter ego Great Saiyanman, ditto for Videl.
Garlic Jr in the, you guessed it, Garlic Jr Saga as well as his original appearance in the "Dead Zone" film.
Frieza's father King Cold and his henchman Zarbon also wear capes attached to their Battle Armor.
King Vegeta in anime filler, flashbacks in some of the films, and Dragon Ball Super's adaption of "Battle of Gods" ("Broly, The Legendary Super Saiyan" & "Battle of Gods"). Just so badass.
Prince Vegeta as a child in anime filler and his childhood flashback in "Battle of Gods" (both the film and Dragon Ball Super adaption). Stopped wearing one as an adult (knowing Vegeta he probably thought he was so much of a badass that he didn't need one).

Nearly every tier 3 promoted character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn have capes. The ones that don't have capes have long flowing robes or coats, both of which behave like capes anyway.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind has master swordsman Lord Yupa whose flowing cape shifts position with each sword stroke; when battling three attackers, the cape hangs from his neck behind him but at the deathstroke, it wraps about his body ala the Shadow! Whoa!
