NinetiesAntiHero. A {{sidekick}} to a classical hero that otherwise fits the role of the trope would be TheLancer.

%%* 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 He's a good person at heart, but is meek, withdrawn, depressed, and bad with people.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.
