Added DiffLines:

* Disney/{{Hercules}} is raised as a farm boy by his MuggleFosterParents after losing his divinity as a baby. [[DeadpanSnarker Megara]] even snarks about his "big, innocent farm boy routine" after they first meet, even though he really is that {{adorkable}}.

* Arnie Harvey from Wisconsin, ordinary chubby kid whose family owns a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Until he gets superpowers in the WhateleyUniverse. He gets superstrength ''and'' superspeed. At the time of his story "Triple Threat" he is considered a campus ''supervillain''.
** There is also superhero actually ''called'' Farm Boy, whose partner is named Tractor. Somewhat subverted in that they are both {{GeniusBruiser}}s; in the Second Gen stories, Tractor became a history professor at Whateley after he retired from heroism.
* MSFHighForum: Sam has this in his orgin combined with soldier.

** Other ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games' Links come close. Though not farmers, they often live a fairly simple life before something draws them into the adventure (for example, two have been apprentice blacksmiths and another was an apprentice train conductor). Only the [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda cartoon]] and direct sequels start out with a seasoned adventurer.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Link was a goatherd before he was pulled into a world of Triforces, shadow demons, and the never ending battle of good vs. evil. [[spoiler:Link is possibly descended (or at least reincarnated) from the previous Links.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Almanzo Wilder in Creator/LauraIngallsWilder 's ''Farmer Boy'' personifies this trope. Justified, as it's the story of Wilder's youth on a horse farm. This also makes him (somewhat) the DistaffCounterpart to young Laura in the other books in the series.

** Speaking of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic ponies]], two ponies from Friendship is Magic grew up on farms. Applejack tried to leave as a kid but ultimately returned, feeling the family farm was her destiny. Nowadays she seems to run it, and while she has helped save the world twice shows no intention of ever giving up being a farmer. Pinkie Pie, on the other hand, happily turned away from the farm when she realised her destiny lay elsewhere, a destiny that as mentioned included saving the world twice, but mostly [[LifeOfTheParty bringing parties and laughter to other ponies]]. Pinkie also claims the farm was so boring that they ''grew rocks'' and that her parents were the pony equivalent of Amish. With her being a CloudCuckoolander, we [[UnreliableNarrator don't know how much of this is true]].

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': As a young boy who spends his days working on his aunt's farm, Oscar lives a very ordinary life but secretly wishes for something more exciting. When he begins hearing voices in his head, telling him that could have a special destiny if he wants it, he actively tries to ignore everything the voices tell him, convinced that he's going completely crazy. [[spoiler:The voice inside his head is the mysteriously missing [[BigGood Ozpin]], who tells him that their Auras and souls have merged because both Oscar and Ozpin were born special, with a potential for greatness if they embrace the opportunity to become the person that guides the world when the world needs help. Oscar eventually resigns himself to the situation and leaves his aunt's farm to begin the journey to Mistral to meet with one of Ozpin's trusted allies, the Haven headmaster.]]
