** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', if your character is female then they are this trope, as she is a law graduate with zero combat experience who nevertheless handles herself just as well as her war veteran husband.

* ''VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}}'': The [=VIPs=] in VIP Rescue missions may not be armed, but they're just as capable of climbing pipes and dropping off buildings as your troops, so you don't have to go out of your way and take a ground-only route to accommodate them.

* Like the Flynns above, Jethro "Jet" Bradley from ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' was just a game designer and got "drafted" by Ma3a to combat a nasty virus from inside {{Cyberspace}}. By the end-game, he's fighting off hordes of digitized ''mercenaries'' sent by the rival company. It's given a brutal {{deconstruction}} in the spin-off comic, though, as the fellow winds up [[ShellShockedVeteran in bad shape mentally]].

* Shining Armor from the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries''. While he is a trained guard and has training sufficient training, he ends up facing off with an insane Hooviet SuperSoldier who devotes a small army to trying to kill him. He manages to survive the battle and handle himself pretty well. This is fortunate for him, considering he's also a WeirdnessMagnet who attracts situations where one ''needs'' to be this.

* Xander on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' walks the line between this trope and BadassNormal throughout the course of the series. As of Season 8 he's BadassNormal. Losing an eye will do that to you.

* Most professions in ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}'' are regular jobs like fast food cook, home mechanic, pizza delivery boy, or elementary school student, who are thrown into a simultaneous ZombieApocalypse, giant bug infestation, mushroom alien invasion, with a few {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and riot-control robots gone haywire thrown in for good measure. You can also spend trait points to start as a better-suited job such as military recruit, various kinds of {{cyborg}}s, or black belt.

* ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'': Ichika Orimura has subpar training and his PoweredArmor is a FlawedPrototype, so you can expect him to lose in nearly all his fights. In the rare case he wins, it will be either through sheer luck, outside help or by the skin of his teeth. Even after [[TookALevelInBadass Taking A Level In Badass]], he still needs help from more experienced fighters.[[/folder]]

* ''Anime/ReCreators'': Sota Mizushino has no superpowers like the fictional characters that have come to the real world and he is not even a skilled artist like his fellow Creators, which means all he can do is run away from fights and hope his friends can solve the crisis at hand.

* Dagger, from ''{{Literature/Wande}}''. At the start of the novel he's narrowly managed to escape a group of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent smilers]], and been separated from the rest of his group, when escape is seen as impossible for most people. By the end of the book he's a full-fledged BadassGay with numerous kills under his belt, [[spoiler:and one of only two people known to have escaped after being held prisoner by the smilers twice.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'', players can customize Commander Shepard's military background. While the other two backgrounds make Shepard famous for something badass, SoleSurvivor Shepard qualifies as one of these. She/he is famous for being the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sole survvior]] when a group of [[SandWorm Thresher Maws]] attacked his/her squad. She/he didn't even kill the creatures in response, she/he merely survived. As the game shows, surviving one of these is no joke.
