to:

* Rocket Raccoon of the ''GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' started as a very weird version of this trope plus FunnyAnimal. He later learned that the people he was protecting were actually abandoned mental patients; he'd been created to serve as the least-threatening asylum orderly possible. This leads to his modern characterization as a cynical, kleptomaniac bounty hunter.

* ''Series/CaptainVideo'', the original TV space hero, was PlayedStraight in his billing as an "electronic wizard! Master of time and space! Guardian of the safety of the world!" All this while being the face of the NoBudget DuMont network. His future space uniform was made out of an Army surplus uniform, and one of his weapons was made out of car parts.

* Franchise/{{Ben 10}} and specially it sequels are known to play this trope straight. [[TheMenInBlack The Plumbers]] are a secret SpacePolice that deals with different inter-planetary issues, they travel between planets fighting against the bad guys with a different set of weapons or alien superpowers. It's clear that Ben wants to be like this, as he wanted to join in the first series a special organization that was mostly a lighthearted parody of this (They were portrayed rather cartoonish but still capable and useful) and in the flashforward episodes he is seen as a straight example of this trope. The sequel series ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' shows a very diverse set of Plumbers with many of them falling squarely on this trope.

* In ''Literature/RallyRoundTheFlagBoys'', Oscar Hoffa's work as a television producer includes watching an episode of ''The Adventures of Crunch Crandall, Spaceman'', whose titular hero fights to "save the fair Skarlotta, a Martian lass from the foul clutches of 'It,' the nameless monster of Ursa Minor." Oscar's executive complaints include not seeing enough cleavage on Skarlotta and the monster looking like "a faggot."
