** Same goes for his buddy Gray Fox, whose actual name is Frank Jaeger. Similarly to Snake above, Fox became markedly more interesting and complicated after ceasing being a cool EvilCounterpart with a bandanna, and returned as an [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot undead]] CyborgNinja with a lot of GothicHorror elements.

* Solid Snake from the ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' series started as one, but did develop a very detailed and unique personality as the series progressed.

He [[https://i.imgur.com/5P8IDVO.png looks]] and acts like one, and [[WrongGenreSavvy seems to start off thinking that he's a straight example.]] And [[HeWhoFightsMonsters boy is he wrong.]]

** Probably the straightest example is the Soldier, though he still seems to be a parody of this. He's got the buzzcut and [[OneLiner One Liners]] down, but never served in the military[[note]]He was so dumb that they wouldn't take his ass in during ''UsefulNotes/WorldWarII''[[/note]], favors [[SplashDamage rocket launchers]] over handguns and rifles, and his first name is (supposedly) [[GenderBlenderName Jane]].

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', former Marine protagonist John Rumford fits every item on the checklist, except that he isn't fighting to save a loved one, but his country.

-> ''[[Videogame/{{Doom}} Doom's]] blank slate character paved the way for the generic leads seen in what feels like most modern games; a shaven-headed average joe designed to tread the path of least financial risk.''
