* Despite his insistence on being a normal guy, Xander Harris kills a dozen [[Film/{{Avengers}} Chitauri]] in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-31969/Nycorson+Vacation+means+Chaos.htm Vacation means Chaos]]'' all while grumbling how much easier things would be if he had his axe.

In ''FanFic/ABridgeOnceBroken'', [[Film/{{Avengers}} Natasha]]. SuperWeight of 1 in a story that has [[PhysicalGod Norse gods, fantasy gods]], [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]], (several) [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Asian-type]] dragons, [[WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}} elia]][[ThinkingUpPortals tropes]], [[SealedEvilInACan shushu]], [[MechanicalLifeforms freakin' enormous robots]] and a [[Film/IronMan genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist]]. Thinking on her feet and some ''serious'' audacity (as well as careful picking her fights) gets her far. Clint Burton, on the other way, does more brooding than actual work.

* In the ''{{Transformers}}'' fic, ''They Just Don't Care Anymore'', the character Alien spends a lot of time being criticized as a minor character who won't get to do anything important and will inevitably be the first to die when a horde of undead attacks... until a horde of undead actually attacks. In a MomentOfAwesome, she announces that she's sick of being called a minor character, whips out a pair of kukris and single handedly takes down everything in her path, after which she proceeds to throw a guy into a quarry because he annoyed her.
* [[Anime/SailorMoon Tuxedo Kamen]] manages to pull this off in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6095074/11/Takamachi_Nanoha_of_2814 this chapter]] of ''Fanfic/TakamachiNanohaOf2814'' (keeping in mind that this is the rose only version of the character) when he goes toe to toe with [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Signum]] using a sword-cane. To put this in context, Signum and the other Wolfenkritter had previously managed to stand up to the combined forces of every other character, including some big names like the Sailor Senshi, [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Negi Springfield and co.]], [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura Kinimoto and Syaoran Lee]], [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Nanoha, Fate, Yuuno and the combined might of the TSAB]] and Superman. Yeah.

* Brad, the main character of ''Fanfic/{{FREAKINGENSOKYO}}'' starts out this way, taking on a handful of fairy maids (who have as much strength as humans, based on Ha-chan) with nothing but a [[ImprovisedWeapon cast iron plant-hanger]] and a flail made of women's underwear.

* [=BlackDragon6=]'s ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' story ''Guardian'' features a character named Ken "Snake" Yakata, a Jewish gun nut who is routinely billed as the most deadly fighter in the Department of Abnormal Phenomenae Containment with the sole exception of Ranma. This is in spite of the fact his other officers are: a powerful psychic psycho capable of cutting the heads off powerful vampires, a superhuman capable of going toe to toe with cyborgs and the worst boss enemies in the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series, and a bloody [[{{Starcraft}} Zergling]]. All Snake has is a shotgun. And lots and lots of firepower. (The man somehow have a working ICBM silo in his house)

** Uhtred is this by Asgardian standards, to the point where [[GodOfWar Sif]] picked him out to be her protégé.

* PokeWars has Samurai, a Pokémon trainer who lost his Pokémon early on in the war. Yet, he is more than capable of holding his own in a fight against them with only his [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]].
** Lt. Surge also counts. He was able to hold off a group of Electivire and Scizor with only a combat knife.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Clint Barton, Natasha Romanova [[LongLived (to an extent)]] and Carol Danvers prior to [[spoiler: her super soldier heritage being activated and her temporarily becoming the new Green Lantern),]] every single one of whom can kick all of the ass without explicit superpowers.

* Gwenith Cousland and Theron Mahariel in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' fanfiction [[DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns Dragon Age: The Crown of Thorns]] qualify, although the latter's very sharp hearing could be seen as a CharlesAtlasSuperpower in its own right. Of course, seeing as how everyone else, especially Kallian Tabris, either came with or gained some power or another over the course of the story, it is unclear if this status will last for the human noble and Dalish. Leliana and Zevran still fit perfectly though,

* ''Fanfic/HarmonyTheory''
** DarkActionGirl Charisma despite being literally born with what is essentially a BloodKnight cutie-mark, is just a normal, if mentally unbalanced pegasus, who's only unique ability is her "talent" constantly telling her the best ways to kill anypony in her immediate area. Yet, she is so badass she used train ''griffins'' and is more then capable of handling enemies several times her size and strong enough to kill her in one blow. [[TheDreaded She is so feared]] that she even earned herself the nickname "[[TheRedBaron The Ass Kicker]]" and is said to be invincible in a fair fight. It really says something, that in a cast of heroes consisting of a skilled magic user, resurrected heroes who are '''far''' stronger than modern ponies, a griffon, ''and'' dragon, they ''still'' have to fight dirty to beat her.
** Though not as big an example as the above, Detective Hard Boiled, who despite having a degenerating condition that seriously weakens his magic and no unique powers directly relating to combat, manages to keep up with the other and take out {{Mooks}} just through intuition and police training.
