* In ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'', Wyndle often bemoans the fact that he was bonded with Lift and thus doomed to a life of danger and bizzare adventures. He would much rather bond a cobbler, as was the original plan, and spend his life making shoes.

** Also echoed in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' where a bomb planted in Clark's car makes everyone assume he's dead. Superman survives, of course, but as he tells his foster parents, he ''needs'' his civilian identity, as being Superman all the time would likely drive him over the edge.

** The page image above was only his ''first'' attempt to quit, done in issue #50. He'd try again and again during his career, one attempt resulting in the infamous "six-armed saga" when his attempt to cure himself of his powers only made him ''more'' spider-like. (Oddly enough, the ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' tie in where he ''keeps'' the six arms as Spider-Man actually has his life turn out okay, a rarity for that series.)



* In the new ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'' comic, Jessica want very much and tries very hard to give up the super-hero thing for good, for the sake of her baby. Unfortunately, trouble is drawn to her like a magnet, as is temptation and boredom. Eventually, she checks into a max-security alien hospital recommended by Carol and ComicBook/AlphaFlight, but it only gets worse, as a renegade gang of Skrulls manage to break into the place, requiring Jess to go into action again, going into labor halfway through, and fighting the bad guys after doctors deliver her baby with an emergency C-section. (The baby's okay, but on the final page, Jess and Carol ''laugh'' at the thought that she can ''ever'' be normal again.)

* 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.)

* In ''Film/{{Selkie}}'', this is Jamie's reaction after he first turns into a seal and finds out why. He comes to accept it by the end of the movie, backing out of a ritual that would have turned him permanently human.
