    Bad-ass gamer tags for Xbox Live should include a self-titling prefix and an elaborate, explanatory suffix designed to strike fear into the heart of opponents. Good examples of bad-ass gamer tags include "LittleMissRuthless," "BigManiac" and "PoisedPanther." Each word should give opponents an idea of the player's gaming style and make them fearful of their tactics. The use of alliteration and puns can create an exceptionally bad-ass gamer tag.
