* While in most ''[[TalesSeries Tales]]'' Games, magic is hinted at being quite normal and can be matched by the physical arte users, the only game in which this trope can exist is ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', and it counts for Cless, Chester, and to some extent Suzu. Magic is needed to defeat Dhaos, and Mint's magic is only healing so obviously, they have to get Arche and Klarth, who are rarities outside of elves in that they are able to use magic. (Klarth is one of the few humans who can use magic because he makes pacts with spirits, Arche is half-elf.) Cless, Chester, and Suzu are left to their own weapons and their own strengths, not being blessed with such power, but they do compensate for their powerful techniques, some of which border on magic. (As for Suzu, she learns her techniques through ninja scrolls which may be counted as magic).

* [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]], gaming's quintessential English BadassBookworm ActionGirl, has over the course of many long years faced dangerous (and often oversized) animals, dinosaurs, Irish ghosts, badly mutated humans, ''[[OneWingedAngel horribly]]'' mutated humans, mummies, evil statues, undead samurai warriors and ''outright gods''. She has beaten them all.

*** Also from the first game, Pippi. Yes, she's a little girl, but she boasts insane stat boosts with each level up that are about on par with Teddy's. It's pretty funny to watch her do near double the damage Ninten can do... until, tragically, you have to return her home to advance the plot.

* ''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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' takes place in a ScienceFantasy where most [[PlayableCharacter champions]] either use magic, futuristic technology, or {{Magitek}}. On top of that, half of the champions aren't even human. This makes the champions Viktor and Tyra stand out by being humans who rely on ordinary firearms and their skills as an OldSoldier and a ScarilyCompetentTracker, respectively.

* A must in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', because precisely half the player classes are Jedi or Sith, and the others can't just be inferior to them. There is the Bounty Hunter class, sure (who ends up kills more force-Users than any other non-Force user class in the game), but the Republic Trooper can go toe-to-toe with a Sith with ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV2wObqgvHM melee weapons]]'', and sometimes just his bare fists and a single grenade. Meanwhile, the Smuggler has even ''less'' firepower, and resorts to such things as [[GroinAttack kicking his opponent in the nuts]]. The Imperial Agent in particular was designed around the idea of how someone like Grand Moff Tarkin is capable of standing up against Force-users.

** The player can choose to [[EnforcedTrope enforce]] this in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored 2}}'', where the character you play as (either [[BadassPrincess Emily]] or [[BroughtDownToNormal a recently depowered Corvo]]) meets the Outsider and can accept his Mark or refuse it outright, allowing the player to play through the game with no powers at all. Doing this will net you an [[CosmeticAward achievement/trophy]].
