BAMF is an acronym for Bad Ass Mother Fucker.
It is often used to describe a certain way of writing a character that emphasizes their badass qualities: for instance, Alicambs' Sherlock Recs for BBC Sherlock fandom features a section specifically for "BAMF!John" stories. Another recs post by hoodie-time in Supernatural fandom is entitled a trio of BAMF!Cas fic recs (Dean/Castiel and gen).
Fans of the X-Men may also know bamf! as the sound effect that accompanies Nightcrawler's teleporting.
