See also PunchClockHero. Compare SuperLoser and TragicHero. Contrast with TheAce and NinetiesAntiHero. A {{sidekick}} to a classical hero that otherwise fits the role of the trope would be TheLancer.

* Hiccup Haddock from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' is physically frail, rubbish in a fight and would rather solve problems by talking than punching. As the son of a Viking chief, this leaves him about as out of water as a fish can get. ''Everyone'' worries what will happen if he ever has to become chief himself - not least Hiccup himself.

* Lincoln Loud in ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' is an unathletic, rather [[OnlySaneMan ordinary boy in a family with ten extremely diverse sisters]], who despite being [[JackOfAllStats all-around skilled at what they can do]] still feels [[MasterOfNone inadequate at how much better they are]] and more often than not has allowed his own selfish ambitions get in the way of his relationships with his family. Despite this, he genuinely loves all of his siblings, tries to set things right, and will take the fall if need be.

* Kazuma Satou from ''LightNovel/KonoSubarashiiSekaiNiShukufukuO'' only wants to have an easy, comfortable life in the [=RPG=]-style world he finds himself in. He has no interest in defeating the [[BigBad Demon Lord]] and even treats his own teammates as liabilities than assets. That said, he does care about his friends in his own way and when push comes to shove, he will do the right thing.

* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' brings us Scott Pilgrim, a 23 year old man living in Canada with no job and no signs of pursuing higher education, who owns almost nothing in the apartment he crashes at, has a bad history of emotionally hurting his exes, isn't dedicated enough to or good enough for his mediocre garage band, has his high school girlfriend pay for video games on a date, and deceives her so he can stalk another girl. He can fight. That's his only "heroic" quality.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Commander Shepard can be played this way in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'',as it's possible to fail multiple loyalty missions and lose squadmates if the wrong decisions are made. Regardless of player's choice, Shepard becomes this in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', given that Shepard loses allies and fails some missions. [[HurtingHero The effect of holding the fate of the galaxy in his/her hands is very noticeable.]]

* Riki Naoe from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' starts out meek, passive, and overly reliant on his friends. The reason he's so dependent on them is because they were the only people there for him in [[OrphansOrdeal the aftermath of his parents' death]]. It's gotten to the point where Riki is content [[AlwaysSecondBest living in the shadows of his friends]]. Throughout the heroines' routes, he goes through CharacterDevelopment and becomes more self-reliant.

* Ichika Orimura from ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'' is brave, honest, quick to forgive, always wants to see the good in people and puts the needs of his friends above his own. Unfortunately, he isn't very bright, always jumps into conclusions and gets his ass kicked on a regular basis. His attempts to save his friends usually end with his friends saving ''him'' instead.
