* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'' Season Three, [[spoiler: Caitlin Snow]] will do anything to get rid of her [[AnIcePerson powers]], terrified that she will turn into a supervillain [[spoiler: like her [[EvilTwin Earth-2 counterpart]]]]. Unfortunatly, her obsession with finding Dr. Alchemy so he will remove her powers leads her to [[SelfFulfillingProphecy becoming the very supervillain]] she wants to get rid of her powers to avoid becoming.

* Ruby Rose from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is a strange ZigZaggedTrope: she wants to be a BadAss [[CreatureHunterOrganization Huntress]], but she's terrified of the social pressure that could result if word got out that she was let into (what amounts to) college two years early, at the Headmaster's personal request no less. She wants to be special in a normal way, not special in a special way.

** Shizuo Heiwajima may be a nigh-indestructible, [[SuperStrength vending machine-tossing]] BadAss, but he'd give that up in an instant if it meant he could go a day without hospitalizing someone in a fit of UnstoppableRage.

* Flinx, the major protagonist of Creator/AlanDeanFoster[='=]s ''Literature/HumanxCommonwealth'' universe, frequently has occasion to wish he did not have [[TheEmpath empathic powers]] as the result of a [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetics experiment]] by a group of {{Evilutionary Biologist}}s. Especially when the BadAss allies, CoolStarship, and the whole [[WalkingTheEarth exploring the galaxy]] thing get overshadowed by being told he's TheChosenOne fated to confront an UltimateEvil; being [[SternChase pursued]] by people who want to variously [[TheyWouldCutYouUp "fix" him]], imprison him, or kill him for being TheChosenOne; and possibly his [[SuperPowerMeltdown brain exploding]] from his evolving powers. {{Wangst}}, thy name is Flinx.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: The eponymous heroine often expressed this desire during the Bronze Age. Unlike her cousin, Kara remembers having a normal life back on Argo City, when she was a normal teenager. After growing into adulthood, she was torn between her desire to have the life of a normal woman and the responsibilities that come with her powers. In ''Superman vol 1 #282'' [[https://maidofmight.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/superman-282_01.jpg she explains her cousin]] that she is thinking of giving up her Supergirl identity because she wants a normal life]]:

* In one ''Disney/GummiBears'' episode, the whole kingdom is overjoyed when Sir Paunch the royal candymaker is coming back, only to be disappointed to find he's only there to say hi, as he's retiring. While everyone loves him and his famous taffy, he's tired of all the attention, claiming it's "the pits". Unfortunately, while he seems to get his wish, he still does not divulge his secret recipe, claiming he cannot do so until he finds a worthy successor. (And after Cubbi, Tummi, and Sunni copy it and nearly blow up the castle trying to make it, one can hardly blame him.)

* Iceland in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is this way. He's constantly [[OnlySaneMan exasperated and embarrassed by the eccentric behavior]] of the other Nordics, pretends he can't see [[InvisibleToNormals his brother Norway's magical creatures]], and tells his [[PollyWantsAMicrophone Puffin]] not to speak when in the company of other people, as they'd "think him pitiful" if he was seen talking to a bird. He's absolutely horrified by the thought that out of all of the Nordics, ''he'' maybe be the "weird" one.

-->'''World☆Stars, Chapter 103:''' He doesn't want to be treated as 'the kid who sees things,' so he pretends he can't.

* The Red Guy from ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'' just wants to be left alone with his friends, rather than having to be taught by a time-traveling clock or a magical sketchbook.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' this is Ash's eternal lament. What with the GenderBender, the drunken angel posing as her boyfriend, and being treated like the local {{Badass}}'s [[ReplacementGoldfish surrogate little sister]] you can't really blame her.
