* Ged/Sparrowhawk in Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's ''Literature/EarthseaTrilogy'' retires to a farm on his home island of Gont after [[spoiler: losing his powers saving the world in ''The Farthest Shore'']]. Of course, this wasn't his plan and he spends most of ''Tehanu'' uncharacteristically depressed, snappy and hermetic. He seems to have accepted the situation and settled down by the time of ''The Other Wind'' several years later, but still refuses to leave the farm or have anything to do with governing Earthsea.

* Sam ended ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' like this. True, gardening was his profession to begin with, but after all the adventures they went through, his final settlement in the Shire definitely had this feel. Ofcourse he later went on to become the Mayor of the Shire, but in the Hobbit politics that probably doesn't necessarily rule out country work on the side.

Of course, this being 40k, Yarrick came back out of retirement when Ghazghkull returned at the head of an even bigger Ork horde to launch the Third Armageddon War, and has vowed to go back only when Ghazghkull is dead.
