Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/GunsOfTheDawn'', Penny Belchere is an official military courier for the kingdom of Lascanne, and is the first woman most of the characters have seen in army uniform. It's an early sign that Lascanne is running out of male conscripts and is thinking about how women can be put in military roles, which presages Emily's own conscription. (Penny Belchere herself shows up again a number of times, including once when [[spoiler:her supposedly non-front-line role doesn't stop her getting captured]].)

* ''UnlimitedSaga'' has the Carriers' Guild, which [[{{Keet}} Ventus]] joins at the start of his scenario. Parts of his quest involve him making deliveries; in addition, he can take several optional {{Side Quest}}s of this nature. While other characters can recruit him during their stories, [[GuideDangIt they still can't access these special quests themselves]].

* In ''RedDeadRedemption'' the series of hidden missions at the end of the game has John Marston [[spoiler: Junior]] pretending to be one.
* In ''TransformersWarForCybertron'' Bumblebee is acting as a courier because the communications in Iacon City aren't safe from the Decepticons. Ironically, the one he's trying to get a message to (Optimus Prime) is the one that saves him from a Deception ambush. The message he's delivering (that [[spoiler: Zeta Prime is assumed dead]]) is disturbing enough that Optimus decides to step up and take "temporary" command of the Autobots.

** It seems that being incredibly badass is one of the job requirements for being a courier, since their job requires them to travel across the post-apocalyptic wastelands, often by [[OneManArmy themselves]]. Seemingly reinforced by Cass' comment;

* In ''Anime/SuiseiNoGargantia'', this is what Amy and her friends do for a living. They make heavy use of gliders in order to get around the fleet in good time. It's also portrayed as completely normal and non-dangerous (though Amy's sometimes reckless use of said gliders might prove otherwise).
