* ''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]]

* ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' turns Kali Belladonna into this during the Tale of Two Sisters. All the other featured non-loopers at least have some huntsmen and huntress training, making them BadassNormals by looper standards. Kali, however, is explicitly stated to be a civilian, only joining in the fight because she couldn't stand not knowing what happened to the rest of her family. By the end of the whole thing she's destroyed a factory, helped kill a vampire, befriended a bandit queen, and become an icon for her people--all within what's implied to be a few hours.

* Eight of the twelve protagonists of ''EternalDarkness'' are, in the words of one reviewer, "one blonde college student, a peasant dancer, a puppy-dog messenger ... a [doctor] wearing a powdered wig, a monk with no weapons ... a fat architect, a nearsighted old guy, and an anemic photographer". All of them are very much capable of standing up to the brunt of the forces and powers the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s bent on invading our realm[[spoiler:, with the "anemic photographer" taking down a fearsome guardian second in power only to its Ancient and living a long life afterwards]]. Often, it takes effort from [[TheDragon Pious]] himself to dispose of them[[spoiler:, and even then, the mighty liche who could bind Mantorok fails to kill both Lindsey and Alex.]]

* Katniss in ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', to an extent. Most of the plot comes together because of her spontaneous decisions, as well as outside characters forcing into situations; she even mentions at the end of the first book that she'd rather just live a normal life.

* ANYONE who has lived through war, natural disasters, or any life threatening situation counts.
* To an extent, the human species itself. We're designed to live in tropical environments, (hence the lack of hair--it's thought to be an adaptation that favors sweating, allowing us to outrun a lot of things in Africa). Yet we have become capable of living in pretty much ''any'' climate despite lacking claws, fangs, fur, or other built-in survival gear. For example, if you drop a human off into the woods with nothing but the clothes on their back, they can make a fire, fashion a makeshift knife from stones, and build a small shelter. It probably won't be very comfortable, but if a person knows what to do and how to do it, they'll live. If you take a penguin and drop it off in the woods, even if it had the intelligence and knowledge it would take to survive in the forest, it would not necessarily be able to do so due to a lack of hands.
* The town of Misrata in Libya. When Gaddafi's forces encircled the town during the 2011 civil war, its defenders were basically angry civilians with guns. By the time the siege was lifted months later, they were one of the better militias on the rebel side.
