* The [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Wastelanders]] in ''Jak3Wastelander'' qualify, as not only will they shoot at you if you hit them, but when Spargus is overrun by Dark Makers, they fight back.

* The willingness of random people to take on the dragons in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has reached memetic levels among fans. It is quite distressing (or perhaps heartening) to note the number of people who will charge straight in a torrent of flame in order to beat a dragon to death with their bare hands. Though this might explain all the random people who tell you they think they might be the Dragonborn.

** In ''Fallout 4'', ''every'' member of your settlements can become this. And depending on how well you arm them, they can potentially take on Raiders, Gunners, Super Mutants, and even ''Deathclaws'' on their own.

* MegCabot's ''American Girl'' examines this from the point of view of the bystander. She just happens to be present at the scene of an attempted presidential assassination, and tackles the assassin, injuring herself in the process. She does nothing else heroic or extraordinary over the course of the book, and does not view herself as a hero, but the resultant fame changes her life in a variety of ways, good and bad.

*The citizens of Angel Grove become this in the finale of ''Series/PowerRangersinSpace''. Firstly, when Astronema holds the Earth hostage, she demands that the Rangers step forth or she will start killing people. The citizens then proceed to re-enact the IAmSpartacus scene. Then when the Rangers appear and morph in plain view of the citizens, Bulk and Skull of all people, lead them in a charge against the Quantrons. After six years of monster attacks, it was clear the people of Angel Grove decided enough was enough.

* Hobb from ''Series/GameOfThrones'', who is mentioned in passing a few times as the Castle Black cook but is basically just a background extra, gets a whole sequence dedicated to him fighting off several Wilding raiders with kitchen utensils during the siege of Castle Black.
