** Kakeru Kamisato used to be an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent when he suddenly gained the ability World Rejector, making him one of the most powerful characters in the series. He ''greatly'' dislikes this and being thrust into the role of a hero. Also, he believes the girls in his UnwantedHarem only like him because of his power. His dislike of having powers is so great that he starts attacking the Magic Gods, believing they were responsible for giving him his powers.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/HallowMass'', Mercy O’Connor really doesn’t want to be one of the last defenders of mankind against the monstrosities summoned at Dunwich. What she really wants is to have another drink, make some money off of selling formula, and possibly land a decent boyfriend. Circumstances dictate otherwise, however.

* [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' would rather study science than fight crime as an Avenger, which conflicts with his TechnicalPacifist beliefs. Opposite of his girlfriend Wasp, who loves being a supherhero (and isn't happy that Hank doesn't feel the same way).

* Irene in ''Literature/VoidDomain'' has quite grievous complaints about all the abnormal events that occur around the local WizardingSchool. Shalise qualifies to a lesser extent.

* Shiki from ''{{Tsukihime}}'' has the ability to see death conceptualized as lines and points that only he can see. Not just people or other living things, but also walls, buildings and even the walking dead. It's incredibly disturbing because it makes the world seem like it could fall apart at a touch. And, if it was him doing the touching, it very well might. Most of the time he wears special magic glasses that seal off this ability because not only would it be impossible to remain sane if you could see death all the time, but it also causes him brain damage to see things that humans weren't meant to see.

* The main character of ''NurarihyonNoMago'' starts this way, wanting to just live a normal life as a human despite being the heir to a huge clan of youkai and a quarter-youkai himself. But [[spoiler:it's averted early on in the first real story arc, when he begins to fully understand his youkai nature and learns of the impact his attitude is having on others firsthand. He decides that while he does want to live a peaceful life, protecting the people close to him and leading his clan is far more important.]]

* In ''YoungDracula'', Vlad wants nothing more than to be a normal boy with a normal family. Jonathan definitely does not want to grow up to be a vampire hunter like his father.
* AceLightning's Mark Hollander regularly just wanted to be normal, rather than the elected sidekick of a hero from a videogame.

* Lance & Cally of ''DarkOracle'' would deeply like the comic (that lets them see the future) to just go away. It was bad enough when it was just predicting horrible events; by the second season [[EvilTwin Blaze & Violet]] were actively trying to escape the comic and pull Lance & Cally in, leading to numerous attempts on their part to just get rid of it and go back to normal.

* In ''TheSecretCircle'', the main character learns she is a witch, and freaks out, does not want anything to do with magic, just wants to be "normal"

* Played several times in ''TheNineLivesOfChloeKing''.
* Occasionally played in {{Series/Merlin}}, not by our resident warlock, but by Prince Arthur. He disguises himself once so that he can compete in a tournament without having his title get in the way, and once admits to Guinevere that he sometimes dreams of becoming a farmer far away where he has no more royal expectations. Merlin, despite having played with this in his earlier years, has ultimately rejected it, embraced his powers as a gift and accepted his destiny to save the kingdom in secret until magic becomes legal.
