** From the same game, former [[CowboyCop C-Sec officer]] Garrus Vakarian has ended up leading a team of vigilantes on [[MeaningfulName Omega]], going after the worst of the criminal scum on the station, and in particular antagonizing the Blue Suns, Eclipse, and Blood Pack to such a degree that the three mercenary companies have [[EnemyMine teamed up just to take him down.]] Actually, this trope seems to apply to everyone in [[BadassCrew Shepard's teams]], which makes sense if you think about the sort of trouble [[BadAss Shepard]] tends to ask for help getting into.

Added DiffLines:

* A staple of Slayers in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Partly because evil will actively seek them out, and partly because (according to Spike) they have an in-built death wish, it's pretty much a given Slayers will die young and violently.
* Mitch in ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'', who involves himself in basically every rescue and dangerous event on the show despite having more of a management position at his rank. He eventually passes the desk side of his job to Stephanie so he can spend more time performing rescues, and she also shows signs of this behavior (the only reason she does this less than Mitch is that it's David Hasselhoff's show).

* [[{{Goth}} Moon]] from ''ComicBook/PocketGod'' takes advantage of her [[DeathIsCheap resurrection abilities]] to put herself in danger for thrills. She persuades [[TheKlutz Klak]] into doing dangerous things for her amusement when [[spoiler: the source of her resurrection powers is destroyed]].

Added DiffLines:

* Each of the three ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' series ends with the kids being offered some degree of safety and stability in exchange for submitting to adult authority. They ''always'' blow it off, even when the consequences are disastrous for them.

* This is one of the reasons that [[InDeath Eve Dallas]] doesn't get promoted to Captain (or get pregnant) at any point in the series thus far, and more than likely will not until the end. She likes her place on the streets.

Sometimes TheHero doesn't get a HappyEnding because [[VictoryIsBoring no ending could conceivably be happy]]. It would mean the end of the adventures, and nothing could be more dull than the lack of the adrenaline. He's not really ''alive'' out of danger. An AdrenalineJunkie, often enough.

Sometimes TheHero is depicted as a StrangerInAFamiliarLand trapped in a dull job or situation, fondly recalling his GloryDays; when [[CallToAdventure a new chance at adventure arises]], they invariably [[JumpedAtTheCall jump on it]]. Sometimes the hero at the beginning already sets out in search of new adventure. Sometimes, in the middle of the story, the hero has a chance to [[RedPillBluePill leave]], and this is one motive for rejecting it. And sometimes it is an ending trope; the hero resolves not to return to mundane life, AndTheAdventureContinues. This is the common ending of AdrenalineMakeover.
