You, an unimportant background character, need something delivered to or across a barren wasteland, deadly jungle, or simply a [[WretchedHive dangerous urban environment]]. The internet, phone, or regular mail service isn't going to cut it. You're going to need something special. And what is that something special?

* An item in ''DefenseOfTheAncients'' gives you an animal courier that can deliver items to and from your team and your base. Unsurprisingly, it is a prime target of the other team.

* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'': Being a courier is a very prestige, and well paid job, as only few meet the requirements to become one. The world, the story takes place, is ''much'' bigger than ours, and is inhabited by countless monsters— therefore a courier has to be strong enough make his delivery.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Drowntown}}, Gina Cassel works as an aqua-courier in [[SunkenCity flooded London]]. This can be dangerous — when we first see her, she's being chased by a gang of thugs. (She's rather annoyed at the end of it when the supposedly important package is just a rich guy's clothes which he could easily have waited for or replaced.)

*Paul and George get thrust into this role by the Guardians in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. After the “debacle” by George and John the previous day, the only mission that the Guardians will give them is a boring courier mission to a distant coastal town. (Though things get a lot livelier when the recipient of their delivery turns out to have been missing for several days.)
**The four find being couriers desperately boring and pointless, and they make it clear later on that they will not accept such missions any longer.

** The protagonist ''is'' The Courier, with the default name being simply "Courier". Some refer to him as Courier Six. The plot revolves around [[MacGuffin the package he's carrying]], over which he was shot in the head at the start.
