* Kasumi of ''Series/SamuraiGourmet'' [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs]] this. He's just trying to enjoy his retirement, and the obstacles to this are usually no more than social awkwardness. Still, when those obstacles arise, it cues the IndulgentFantasySegue where a Sengoku ronin shows him [[WhatWouldXDo how a real samurai would handle the situation]]. This tends to inspire him ''toward'' action, but not always all the way, since real life is real life.

* [[Literature/{{Durarara}} Mikado]] definitely qualifies because he wants to change something. [[spoiler: It's what led him to create [[ImageBoard Dollars]]. Later on you actually see that he has been badass all along.]]

* Ross, Amelia, and Ewan from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' are three youngsters who join an army of badasses with zero fighting experience themselves. All three of them begin ''very'' weak physically, and express a desire to better themselves. It's a rather known fact among the fandom that if you choose to train them, they become blessed with MagikarpPower and end up as freaking powerhouses. In short, Ross, Amelia, and Ewan are three cases of "I Just Want to Be Badass" who [[TookALevelInBadass more than get their wish]].

** ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' and its sequel ''Radiant Dawn'' has Reyson, one of the [[{{Bishonen}} very beautiful]] and very frail princes of the heron tribe. In his support conversations with the protagonist Ike, Reyson reveals that he at times ''despised'' himself for his inability to fight after the human nation Begnion massacred the heron tribe and all but destroyed their home, Serenes Forest. He was jealous of his caretaker, the [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority immensely powerful king]] of the [[BigBadassBirdOfPrey Hawk laguz tribe, Tibarn,]] and tried to toughen himself up by force so that [[PayEvilUntoEvil he'd be able to one day take revenge on humans]]...only to make himself sick in the process. He mostly came to terms with his status as a NonActionGuy, seeing as he is able to [[SupportPartymember help out through singing]] his magical galdrs, which do things like heal allies, cure them of harmful conditions, and grant them {{Extra Turn}}s.

* [[MoeAnthropomorphism Sword Warrior]] Yamatonokami Yasusada of ''Anime/ToukenRanbuHanamaru'' just wants to be stronger. However, it isn't this wish that's the problem, it's why - he wants to become stronger to protect his previous master, [[UsefulNotes/TheShinsengumi Okita Souji]]. The problem? Okita died centuries before Yamatonokami (Okita's sword) was turned human by his [[NonEntityGeneral current master]], the one he ''should'' be trying to protect. He is also probably the least manly, most {{Moe}} example on this page.

* ''Website/TheArtOfManliness' recognizes and deconstructs this trope. It gives advice to men about what it means to be masculine/badass while deflating some of the more immature ideas some have about being manly.

* Cyril, the bellringer mouse from the {{Redwall}} fic ''TheUrthbloodSaga'' has as his life's ambition to become a warrior someday, resenting his status as a lowly abbey novice and feeling as if his elders will [[AdultsAreUseless always treat him like a child]]. While he becomes somewhat less enthusastic about the idea and more accepting of his place after his younger brother Cyrus [[spoiler: just barely survives being wounded by a visiting soldier]], he still has it as his ultimate goal.
