** Assuming the punching machine at the 25th World Martial Arts tournament use the same units as the scouter, Hercule's power level is only two short of [[BadassGrandpa Master Roshi]]. Make of that what you will.

** [[BadassGrandpa Abraham Van Hellsing]], the founder of the eponymous organization, is an ordinary human being... who also happens to be one who [[CurbStompBattle defeated Alucard]] back when the latter was known as Count Dracula, making him one of the most powerful characters in the series.

** On the Marines' side, there's Luffy's BadassGrandpa, [[spoiler:former]] Vice Admiral Garp. The guy has no Devil Fruit powers whatsoever, but was offered the position of ''Admiral'', a position usually occupied by NighInvulnerable people who won the SuperpowerLottery, several times, but denied, thinking Vice Admiral was enough.

** Shanks is a HandicappedBadass, able to cross blades with [[WorldsStrongestMan Whitebeard]] and walking away. And before he lost his arm, he was once rivals with ''Mihawk'', the world's greatest swordsman, who had sought him out for fights. The very first chapter of the manga (the fourth episode of the anime) has Shanks scare a Sea King (a gigantic sea serpent, which often make humans look like tiny specks by comparison) into fleeing with Conqueror's Haki.

** Played straight with Knuckle Duster of ''Manga/VigilanteMyHeroAcademiaIllegals'', who is a Quirkless vigilante who relies on brute strength augmented by a pair of knuckle dusters. Despite his supposed lack of powers he is capable of fighting other characters with Quirks.

** The Head Resident of the Tokiwadai dorms. Despite having no powers, she administers discipline to a dorm full of Level 3+ espers, including ''two'' Level 5's, and she's [[TheDreaded feared by them all]]. To show how feared she is, she scared away ''[[HotBlooded Gunha]] [[ComboPlatterPowers Sogiita]]'', who caught [[ShockAndAwe Mikoto Misaka's]] railgun ''with his [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] teeth'', of all people.

* ''Manga/BlackClover'': [[TheHero Asta]] qualifies. He was born with absolutely no magical powers. To compensate, he spent several years TrainingFromHell in-order to fight. However, when he is easily defeated by a mage,he becomes an EmpoweredBadassNormal after he receives his glimore which grants him Anti-Magic.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'':
** Levi, the biggest badass of the story. Capable of downing multiple Titans alone and [[spoiler:utterly dominating the Central Military Police, themselves considered as a BadassArmy,]], he definitely lives up to his reputation as humanity's strongest soldier. The character databook has his combat skills at [[UpToEleven 11]] [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale out of 10]]. And he can hold his own against [[EliteMook Titan Shifters]].
** Sasha. Many characters die fighting the Titans even with special equipment like the 3D Maneuver Gear. She takes on one first with a hatchet and then with a bow and arrows, managing to wound it enough to rescue the young girl it was attacking.

* Played with with Mumen Rider from ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. In a practical sense, it's a subversion; In a world full of people with {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s, he's just some guy on a bike who doesn't stand a chance against the monsters most of the heroes above him have to contend with. But his sheer [[TheDeterminator heroic determination]] eventually leads him to stand up to the Sea King to protect a shelter full of people he was about to slaughter, even knowing his opponent (who took out multiple S-rank heroes just minutes before) is leagues above him and that he doesn't stand a chance, but he has to HoldTheLine anyway because there's no one else left. As such, he's one of the few heroes that the godly-powerful Saitama shows respect for.
