Gar > Awesome > Manly > Badass
Anyone can be badass, most things can be manly, a few can be "awesome", very few can be GAR.
K1 is just at the awesome level. His speeches have hooks to them and appeal to male mutality - it's the kind of rush one gets listening to an observation in Cromartie, and maybe to a lesser extent SZS.
But he's not at that, "oh god I'm getting a boner listening to his every coo" kind of feeling that is GAR.
