* ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}: City of the Damned'': The game's playable factions include psychotic mutants and demon-worshipping cultists, murderous RatMen, all-female holy warriors with supernatural powers, and... a bunch of ordinary sellswords with nothing but sharpened steel, crude firearms and their wits and discipline.

** Leaf definitely qualifies for this trope in ''Thracia 776''. He's exactly the same after promotion as he was before. Even story-wise, Leaf feels inadequate next to other resistance leaders, like Celice, Shanan, and Sety, who carry legendary weapons. Sety, Leaf's [[TheObiWan Obi-wan]], tells him his struggles are what makes him a Holy Warrior.

* The majority of the hunters in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' qualify for this. They're normal humans who take on massive killing machines with only their wits and tech to keep them alive.

** To some degree, ''Skyward Sword'' makes this the case for ''every Link ever''. All the Zeldas are now retconned into being [[spoiler: the descendants of a {{Physical God}}dess]], Ganon is now [[spoiler: the reincarnation of an AnthropomorphicPersonification of pure evil]], and Link... is still just that [[SilentProtagonist quiet kid]] with a sword. Sometimes he's TheChosenOne, but sometimes he isn't even that.

All the Zeldas and Zelda to ever exist are now retconned into being [[spoiler: the descendants of a {{Physical God}}dess]], Ganon is now [[spoiler: the ''Skyward Sword'' Link and Zelda, and thus are destined to fight the reincarnation of an AnthropomorphicPersonification of pure evil]], and Link... Demise, a.k.a. every Ganon/Ganondorf to ever exist, as the original Demise cursed their entire bloodline.]] Therefore, they ''don't'' count, BecauseDestinySaysSo. [[spoiler:The Link from ''Wind Waker'', however, is still just that [[SilentProtagonist quiet kid]] with a sword. Sometimes he's TheChosenOne, but sometimes he some random kid named Link, in an era where pretty much every second boy is named Link because everyone wants to name their kid after the legendary Hero of Time. He isn't even that.connected to the "real" Link in any way, and has no destiny whatsoever to speak of, but still managed to kick so much ass that they had to call him the Hero of Winds just to give him ''some'' recognition.]]

** [[KnightInShiningArmour Ky Kiske]] has repeatedly held his own against the super-powered {{Badass}} Sol Badguy in duels, although he's never technically beaten him. The thing is, though, is Sol is an inhumanly powerful Gear who can vaporise Mount Everest-sized Gears. Ky is a normal human, [[spoiler:until TheReveal in ''Xrd'', where an assassin riddles him with bullets, only for Ky to get up and skewer the offending bastard, with his glowing red eye implying that he's some sort of Gear-human hybrid]].

Added DiffLines:

* Officer Denise Marmalade from ''[[VideoGame/MegaManLegends The Misadventures Of Tron Bonne]]'' is an interesting case. On one hand she has such little self-confidence that Tron actually takes pity on her and doesn't put up much of a boss fight. On the other hand she's strong enough to throw and suplex Tron's HumongousMecha... ''with her bare hands''.

Added DiffLines:

* Teagan in ''VideoGame/UncommonTime''. Unlike the rest of the party, she can't do flashy magic -- she just hits stuff really hard. She does have some affinity for [[DishingOutDirt earth magic]], but can only use it to improve her physical strikes.

Added DiffLines:

** The [[DinosaursAreDragons Tigrex]] and its Subspecies don't have any elemental powers. Despite having no wings, the Tigrex doesn't fly when it fights. It doesn't have any digging powers, spitting powers or anything particularly special at all. The Tigrex is just simply one angry [[OurDragonsAreDifferent wyvern]] with a [[TyrannosaurusRex T-Rex]] head that has one mighty roar.

** In ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance]]'' the ongoing LensmanArmsRace means that every enemy, down to the most basic {{Mooks}}, is either a KillerRobot or a full-body combat {{Cyborg}}. The only exception is [[spoiler: Jetstream Sam who fills the role of Raiden's [[TheRival rival]] and the penultimate boss despite having no enhancements beyond a prosthetic arm.]]

Although, he ''does'' wear [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman a suit of body armor that enhances his physical capabilities]].]]

** Chris Redfield, ''especially'' in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''. He's willing to waltz right up to [[BigBad Wesker]], the SuperSoldier high on PsychoSerum who can stop a rocket with his bare hands, and punch the guy in the mug. ''And hurt him''.

He's willing to waltz right up to [[BigBad Wesker]], the SuperSoldier high on PsychoSerum who can stop a rocket with his bare hands, and punch the guy in the mug. ''And hurt him''. In the same game, he also moves a giant boulder that is blocking his path by ''punching it repeatedly''.
