%%* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''. Yes, he's a [[VillainProtagonist supervillain]], but he's our protagonist and he fits this to a T, especially as his character *ahem* develops through the movie.
* Queen Elsa of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. She was born with godlike ice powers, but after accidentally injuring her sister with them, she becomes overwhelmed with angst about accidentally hurting people. Combined with the fact that negative emotions like fear and anxiety cause her to [[PowerIncontinence lose control of her powers]], her difficulties overcoming this angst end up being a main driving force in the plot.
%%* Blu from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}''.

* The eponymous main character of Manga/OyasumiPunpun fits this to a tee; there's nothing particularly exceptional or admirable about him. He's a good person at heart, but is meek, withdrawn, depressed, and bad with people. The story is about his growing disillusionment with life and how this turns him into a progressively worse person.

* Mr. Satan from ''Manga/DragonBall''.



* Gohan from ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. He tries to play the IdealHero when he is the Great Saiyaman, but he's much closer to this trope since he's often plagued with self-doubt in himself, has no real love for fighting outside of sport (which greatly affects his power), and often depends on his father and Piccolo to protect him when he screws up (which has cost them both their lives at one point). He still fights to protect the world, despite his shortcomings.

** Mr. Satan tries to be an IdealHero to the citizens of Earth and everyone, save for the Z-Fighters, sees him as the savior of the universe. Truth is, Mr. Satan is an unapologetic GloryHound who stole credit for killing Cell from Gohan. He is more often than not scared of fighting anyone stronger than him and will bribe others to throw fights so he can keep his reputation. At the same time, he does have a noble heart and will fight to protect others, even if it means risking his own life. He helps Goku and Vegeta kill Kid Buu by using his heroic status to get the people of Earth to loan energy for the Spirit Bomb.
