*** And then there's his post-Scratch counterpart, who, after spending most of Act 6 either confused at what's going on or locked up in a LuxuryPrisonSuite, joins the final battle by ''punching out the prison walls'' and then taking on a green giant who can literally punch people through time, with nothing more than baked goods and his bare fists, [[CurbStompBattle and dominates.]]

* Revenant and Moonshadow of ''Webcomic/{{PS238}}'' lack powers, although Revenant occasionally jokes that his superpower is being obscenely rich and that's the best superpower of all.

* The main cast of characters from ''Webcomic/Faans!'' before they all got implanted superpowers. To start out, the only real muscle they had on their side was a quiet martial arts expert and a big bruiser. The leader was scrawny and two others had/have severe weight problems. Nevertheless, they hold their own against demigods, vampires, government agents, just plain stab-happy psychopaths, time-traveling warlords, frost giants, mental-brainwashing...the list just goes on. Granted, they did tend to grab their enemies weapons and unleash a wave of energy-blasts but that is just common sense. And the returning threat against all this is a simple rapist/cult leader. Badass normal villain. The 'Faans' make gods run in fear but this creepy bastard has scored some nasty wins.

* Tyler in ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'' is the only student in the school who doesn't have superpowers, and has to learn to be badass very quickly just to survive. Despite his unwillingness to be a superhero he's usually the one who winds up getting his powered collegues out of trouble.
** His mentor and Batman Expy Revenant would also count, as he relies almost completely on wits and gadgets. Revenant mentions that other superheroes generally don't like Badass Normals because they feel the heroing should be left to the special people.

* The Raccoon of ''TheIncredibleAndAweInspiringSerialAdventureOfTheAmazingPlasmaMan'' is a vigilante without super-powers in a city of superpowerful heroes and villains.
* While the world of ''ErrantStory'' is filled with powerful [[{{Ninja}} time ninja]], mages, elves and other overpowered sorts running about, Jon Amraphel is just good at shooting things with a gun. While his relative lack of power is something he complains about often, it hasn't stopped him from killing or subduing many of those mentioned above with the skills he has.
* Jason Chesterfield of ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' is about the only character who's a normal human, and yet also among the only ones who's never had a severe mental incident. In the finale, he's gotten so annoyed with people telling him he and the human species have to wait for their god-like protector to show up, he knocks out the person who claims this, takes command, rallies everybody to fight an unstoppable extraterrestrial invasion with his commanding voice, takes control of the the conspiracy that was trying to kill him minutes before with a bit of charisma and a well-placed kick, and is the only one who isn't moved by the climax. And he never stopped being [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]].

* "[[FanNickname Commander Kickass]]" from ''LookingForGroup''. The first time we see him, he defeats most of the hero party by ''turning a table on them and disarming their caster with a thrown helmet''. From all we know, he's just a standard human (or half-elf).
* Nanashi from ''{{Earthsong}}''. She's now in possession of AllYourPowersCombined, but before that, she attacked the [[GeniusLoci physical incarnation of a planet]]. With a stick.

* ''MobTies'' has Sidney Burns who, InAWorld filled with cyborgs, werecats, dragons, and worse, he only needs his two fists to solve most problems. [[spoiler:This is because he's a former soldier and a former cop. And as a soldier, he was once tortured for several months straight when he was taken captive during the war in Afghanistan/Iraq. This torture included repeated beatings, electro shock to his privates, and being forcefed gasoline to the point that it ended up giving him a stomach condition that would later allow him to breathe fire. WordOfGod is that Sid only managed to keep his toes during that time by using his legs to snap the neck of anyone who tried to cut them off.]]
* Dr. Tip Wilkins of ''SkinHorse''. He's on a team with an unkillable zombie and a genetically engineered battle-dog. Yet he's the one with the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA's]]. People keep forgetting that he was a decorated U.S. Army captain in Afghanistan, just because he's also a WholesomeCrossdresser and KavorkaMan. He rescued his teammates from a town of werewolves after being handcuffed to a bed. He stopped a rampaging clockwork mechanoid that had a nuclear weapon, and he did it ''with therapy puppets''.
* Alice of ''FreakAngels'' is an ordinary human smuggler who falls in with a group of [[PersonOfMassDestruction godlike psychics]]. When one of them [[spoiler:uses mind-control to rape a human girl, and nearly kills two of his superpowered bretheren]], she uses her superior knowledge of the terrain to [[spoiler:hunt him down take him out with nothing more than her trusty shotgun.]]

* Rhea in ''SlightlyDamned''.
* Big Red [=McLane=] from ''AttackOfTheSuperWizards'' certainly qualifies.
* Alex Rayne of the comic ''[[WrightAsRayne Wright as Rayne]]'' gets this twice. In his original identity, he's a very talented super-hero who gets by on his wits and fighting skills. When he's forced into the boy of Dorothy Wright, he's again forced to be a badass normal, but is a little miffed that he didn't get sent into the body of someone with actual powers.
* ''{{Shadowgirls}}'' has a few. Patrick Sawyer slayed a [[spoiler:vampire]] with his sidearm. Then there's everyone's favorite, [[ActionGirl Lindsey]], who'll attack any monster that's threatening her BFF. If it weren't for her paranormal powers, Charon would qualify, with her "Bitch"-stamped knuckle-dusters and a [[MamaBear willingness to deal out untold amounts of pain]] to whomever so much as [[BerserkButton utters an unkind word about her daughter]].
* Grem of the Viper Clan in ''{{Goblins}}'' has no adventurer levels like the GAP [[spoiler:and Saves-A-Fox]], nor unusual body enhancements like Dies Horribly, nor racial disposition for badassery like K'seliss, a Lizardman/Ogre hybrid. He is by all means an ordinary goblin, but he still manages to pull his own weight in battle.
