* In a school inhabited by super-powered {{Magical Girl}}s, Haruka Suzushiro from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' counts, if only for the fact that as the head of Fuuka Academy's Executive Committee, she has a whole legion of students at her direct command, and her utter refusal to take "no" for an answer [[spoiler:even when faced with death after Yukino's CHILD is instantly destroyed by a freshly {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Shizuru, whom she [[WhatTheHellHero chewed out]] and gave a very nasty headbutt just before she disappeared]].

* Domyouji from ''KuroganeNoLinebarrel'' is a common human being who can fight toe-to-toe with nanomachines-enhanced individuals (who can easily punch normal people unconscious in a single blow, and have repeatedly done that).

* ''WolfsRain'': Hubb Lebowski starts the series as an ineffectual wuss with allergies, but by the time the [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt world ends]] he's evolved into a badass that keeps up with the main characters out of [[{{Determinator}} sheer bloody-minded determination]] [[spoiler:even after his wife dies.]] His refusal to die results in one of the most cringe-inducing parts of the series, since he [[spoiler:lets himself fall off the side of what looks like the tallest mountain of the world and still lives long enough after the impact to try and smoke a cigar.]]

*** By following the above example, Lulu would have counted...at least until halfway through the first episode.* Kinagase Tsumugu from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' will smoke anywhere he wants. And he can keep up and out match any Life-Fiber powered pig in human clothing. Unfortunately, he undergoes BadassDecay as the series goes on and becomes less and less effective [[CantCatchUp as the life fiber uniforms just get too powerful.]]

* In ''SoulEater'', Mifune is one of the few characters who is neither a witch, a magical weapon, or the wielder of a magical weapon. He's just really really [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower impossibly]] good at swordfighting. * Bunshichi Tawara from ''TenjhoTenge'' stars in a series filled with formally trained martial artists, people with inherited super powers and the mortal incarnations of [[Myth/JapaneseMythology Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, & Susanoo]], yet still manages to be (arguably) the strongest fighter in the series without any kind of training or supernatural enhancement. Needless to say this has given him quite the reputation in series.

* Ein and the adult version of Bat from ''FistOfTheNorthStar''. While they don't have same [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower martial arts training]] as Kenshiro and other martial artists in the series, they're capable on holding their own against the bad guys. The two of them working together managed to punch a fortress filled with goons to death. Some of the bad guys, like [[CombatPragmatist Jackal]], may qualify for this trope as well. Speaking of [[MadBomber Jackal]], while he did not receive martial art training like the other martial artists, he's an expert of manipulating the environments, people and [[StuffBlowingUp dynamites]], his pragmatism is the reason why he can outlive most villain for quite a while and posed as an actual threat to Kenshiro.

* Gourry Gabriev of ''{{Slayers}}''. In a show where practically [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards every hero and villain worth their money can fly, cast devastating spells, and create force-fields]], he is the idiot with the sword who somehow manages to hold his own. Sure it's the [[LaserBlade Sword of Light]] ([[spoiler:at least until the end of ''Slayers Try'']]), but still.
