The A-Team is a group of ex-United States Army Special Forces who were wrongly convicted of a crime during the Vietnam War. Managing to escape from the military police, they fled to Los Angeles, where, as fugitives, the A-Team work as soldiers of fortune, using their military training to fight oppression or injustice. B.A, along with John "Hannibal" Smith, Howling Mad Murdock, and Templeton "Faceman" Peck make up the A-Team.
A known teetotaler, B. A. prefers milk to alcohol. He also hates cabbages.
One time, three men beat up B.A.'s father, hurting him so badly that he nearly died. B.A. mentioned this one time as an assurance that he knew how to exact revenge on people who hurt someone else's father.
B.A. called his place of residence in L.A., the Hotel Regina, "sleazy".
B.A. hated dentists, preferring to be put to sleep when they worked on him.
B.A. was a mechanic before joining the army.
- Although the rest of the A-Team is not included as minifigures, B.A. Baracus can transform into the rest of the A-Team in game, like Peter Venkman can turn into the rest of the Ghostbusters.
- The late Károly Gesztesi, who voiced B.A. Baracus in the Hungarian dub of The A-Team, also voiced Lando Calrissian.
