* 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.

** Often invoked with modern era companions, who will often not think twice about taking a bullet for the Doctor if needs be (especially companions depicted as having fallen in love with the Doctor). Reaches its apex with Clara Oswald, who openly admits to being addicted to the adventure (with Clara using the actual word "addiction" in this context), and throws herself into harm's way so often, it becomes a constant source of worry for the Doctor, who tries without success to get her to slow down. However, Clara continues moving towards becoming the Doctor's DistaffCounterpart, including an insatiable thirst for adventure ... and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E10FaceTheRaven it doesn't end well for her]].

* When {{Storm}} from the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} married the Black Panther and became Queen of Wakanda, she could possibly do more good for the planet as a world leader than as a superhero, but finds palace life and politics mind-numbingly ''boring''. As a result, she makes regular trips to California to assist the X-Men.
