*** Noteworthy is that in ''Legion'' every class gets their own class hall that only they can access. Most use some form of portal to get to and from their class hall. Warriors? They ''jump'' off the floating Valhalla style city that is their class hall and hit the ground like a meteor.

* The Mortal Kombat series, with its roster of empowered martial artists and inter-dimensional creatures introduced Kurtis Stryker in the third installment: a rather unliked cop with some police gadgets in lieu of powers which he used to kick just as much ass as the god of thunder. Armageddon dug him out of the scrappy heap and had him take a level in badass still without giving him any powers.

** ''X'' introduces the incredibly awesome Erron Black, a wandering mercenary gunslinger born on Earth and somehow ended up in Outworld. True he has some familiarity with magic but he's never shown using it himself, he just uses old-fashioned firearms and other makeshift weapons to defeat sorcerers, demon spawn and monsters. Hell, when faced with the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]], what's his intro quote? [[spoiler:"Haven't seen one of your kind in a while."]]

** [[BritishRockStar Axl]] would also count, as he's an ordinary human with no supernatural powers besides his time travel ([[UnstuckInTime which, unfortunately for him, he can't control]]). Heck, one of his story endings shows him wrangling a dinosaur! [[spoiler:Although ''Revelator'' [[TomatoInTheMirror reveals that Axl Low isn't a human at all, and in fact ''never was''. He's a bundle of [[PureMagicBeing sentient magic energy]] with the power to erase and alter timelines.]]

** Outside the OG Series, there's also ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'''s Calvina Coulange. While most of the originals here (friends or enemies) are of the Fury race in general (including Touya, who is [[HalfHumanHybrid Half Fury]]), she just happens to be a normal human, who used to be a genius AcePilot. And when presented with a mecha designed to be ridden by Furies... all she needs is just a little adjustment and then she resumes her old days of metal ass-kicking, piloting something she's supposedly not be able to drive.

* Captain Novolin, the protagonist from the [[ProtagonistTitle eponymous]] [[VideoGame/CaptainNovolin video game]], is a superhero whose superpower is... Having diabetes. And that's it: he doesn't get special powers from his illness, he's just a diabetic man (albeit a quite muscular one who can pull off some impressive jumps) who believes he is the best suited hero to fight aliens who happen to be made of junk food that will damage him by simply ''touching him''.
