* Overdrive in ''Comicbook/SuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' is an odd example. He's not just not a hero, he's a fully-fledged villain, albeit one who tends to fanboy over superheroes in the middle of fights. But he's a villain who hasn't given up on his original plan to be a superhero, and points out the HeelFaceTurn path to Comicbook/TheAvengers worked for Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} and the Comicbook/ScarletWitch.

* Suppaman from ''Manga/DoctorSlump''. Despite claiming that he is the "Champion of Justice", he is a petty {{Jerkass}} that's more than willing to get revenge on people that supposedly wronged him.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', [[BigBrotherBully Nuka]] is hopelessly envious of Kovu's exalted position, and takes every opportunity he can to remind people of this. His issues stem from [[FreudianExcuse maternal neglect]] and the lack of respect everyone else shows him. ([[{{Jerkass}} The latter is completely justified.]]

* Leopold Scorpse from ''ScrappedPrincess'', who follows the heroine out of equal parts sense of chivalry and growing feelings for her.

* ''FrankenFran'' has an extremely disturbing example, [[UpToEleven even by this series' standards]]. One of the Sentinels literally gets a high from pursuing vengeance, so whenever he gets in a fight he ''arranges'' for the maximum amount of collateral damage. Then he swears to the dead that he will avenge them, and starts off anew.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Laurel wants to be a badass vigilante like her sister Sara, ex-boyfriend Oliver and his Team Arrow companions, but lacks the skills - and often the logical thinking - to manage it. Her Season 3 arc is her trying to hit the streets and save people to "let out the anger inside of her" only to get beaten up or saved by others. Oliver and Team Arrow aren't shy about telling her to back off, especially as they keep having to bail her out of trouble when they have other issues to deal with.

* Almaz in-game title in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' is "Wannabe Hero" which pretty much says it all. Then Mao breaks the Fourth Wall to steal his title. Almaz is a downplayed example as he lacks the skill of a true hero ([[GenreBlind he decided to try to defeat the Overlord at level 5]]), but not the heart. [[spoiler:His interactions with Mao ends up changing both of them for the better and in the normal ending he subverts the trope by becoming a true hero.]]
