** In a similar comparison to Kanji, Ryuji from ''VideoGame/Persona5'' subverts this trope. Despite having a HellBentForLeather outfit and a tough demeanor, he doesn't have a bike. He makes up for it for having a {{Badass}} {{Pirate}} as his Persona, which evolves into [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong, the Monkey-King.]]

* It's possible to play [[Franchise/SaintsRow The Boss]] as this trope: just give him a HellBentForLeather outfit, a couple of guns and a CoolBike, and boom! Instant manifestation of this trope.

** Kanji, [[VideoGame/Persona4 from the same game]], [[ZigZaggedTrope toys with this trope a lot.]] On the one hand, he has [[JapaneseDelinquent the demeanor and appearance]] of a BadassBiker... only he was actually a [[UsedToBeASweetKid sweet kid]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold (and still is)]], and actually ''beats up'' biker gangs [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas for causing too much noise for his mother.]] Then he plays it straight ''again'' by having a (non-motor) bike that he uses regularly and even an outfit that looks like a Japanese biker outfit... only to avert it ''[[SerialEscalation again]]'' by being the only member of the Investigation Team to never get a motor Scooter.

** The one person to play this straight, ironically, is Makoto Niijima, the ''StudentCouncilPresident.'' Despite being a bit of a goody two-shoes with some hidden anger issues, alongside a ''completely'' {{Adorkable}} blushing beauty when romanced or flustered, she manages to be a confident Persona-user who's Persona manifests ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot as a nuclear-powered motorcycle based off a female Pope and later a Sumerian goddess.]]''

** If you consider automatic scooters to be bikes, then the Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/Persona4'' ''[[UpdatedRerelease Golden]]'' absolutely qualifies. Despite automatic scooters being [[{{Badbutt}} tame compared to actual bikes]], and ''especially'' disregarding the fact that the Investigation Team are a bunch of [[{{Adorkable}} Adorkable goofballs]], there's no less competent or badass as the other [[BadassBiker Badass Bikers]], and in some ways, are even tougher. [[spoiler:For example, how many people in ''general'' [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punch out the Japanese Goddess of Death?]]]]
