** At first it's just hinted at, with the titular blue alien trying to fit in at [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY shool]]. Then it's [[ThenLetMeBeEvil averted]] for awhile... before being hinted at even ''more'' strongly when he pretends to be human for Roxanne.

** At first it's just hinted at, with the titular blue alien trying to fit in at [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY shool]]. Then it's [[ThenLetMeBeEvil averted]] for awhile... before being hinted at even ''more'' strongly coming back into play when he pretends to be human for Roxanne.Roxanne. He even toasts "to being normal" during their date, but unfortunately for him, his cover is blown at the absolute worst possible time and [[ThenLetMeBeEvil he bounces right back to villainy]]. [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn He ultimately]] [[SmoochOfVictory gets a]] [[HundredPercentHeroismRating better outcome]]]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' Peter Parker suffers a brief bout of this. When Peter is caught having taken pictures of his [[SecretIdentity alter-ego's]] battle with [[{{Animorphism}} mutated geneticist]] the Lizard, after [[SecretIdentityChangeTrick claiming he was going home]], his friends and superiors at the ESU labs distrust him, and fire him from his internship. Stealing a [[PowerNullifier gene cleanser]] from the lab, Peter briefly considers taking it before remembering his [[ComesGreatResponsibility credo]]. He does, however, keep it [[ChekhovsGun hidden under his desk]]. ** A desire for normalcy is also the motivation for {{Supervillain}} Electro's [[ComesGreatInsanity descent into insanity]]. Granted [[PowerIncontinence uncontrollable]] [[PsychoElectro electrical powers]] in a FreakLabAccident, he's [[FreakOut unable to cope]], and [[HostageSituation holds the lab's staff hostage]] to get them to develop a cure.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Accelerator, of all people, really seems like he would have lived a much happier life if he didn't have his incredible powers. He expresses several times a desire that people would just stop attacking him all the time, but due to his power, they never will. Indeed, when he's left to his own devices, he's pretty passive and doesn't have any desire for violence or destruction. It's only when he or his loved ones are threatened that he goes psychotic BloodKnight.

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.

* In the second issue of Dan Slott's run on ''SheHulk'', Jennifer Walters represents Dan Jermain, alias [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Danger Man]], a mild-mannered industrial worker and family man turned into a superhuman paragon of might in an on-the-job accident. He's suing his employers in the Roxxon Corporation because [[HeroicBuild looking like Mr. Olympia]] and being stronger than a stampeding elephant herd has caused him nothing but pain. He tears his clothes with the slightest sudden movement. He doesn't need to eat, frequently damages his property by accident, He rolls over in bed and nearly crushes his wife, who worries that he'll leave her to become a superhero and 'team up' with a more attractive heroine. People stare at him on the subway, but the people who pretend to not look are worse, since now he has super hearing and knows they are jut waiting for him to turn into a hero or villain. The climax of the issue sees Danger Man using his atomic powers to have a literal meltdown, because then at least his family will get to collect on his life insurance, before being talked down by Jennifer (In human form). They won the lawsuit; Danger Man received nearly a hundred million to go to family counseling and, hopefully, some sort of cure. If he ever ''was'' cured, the reader was never clued in, though.
