* ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' has the Owner of the Den Liner. Owner is a very enigmatic middle-aged man capable of feats that where never explained in the show. He can, for example, keep up with a speeding train. On foot. And he is shown to be immune to Ryutaros mind control, possessing a similar ability himself. What makes this character especially awesome is his stoic and calm way of acting, while doing all of his unexplained stuff.

* Jones ("just Jones is enough") from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. She's "[[Film/MaryPoppins Practically perfect in every way]]" -- as [[TricksterMentor tricky]] as Film/MaryPoppins, as [[EmotionlessGirl coldly precise]] and as [[ImplacableMan unstoppable]] as a Film/{{Terminator}}, and apparently even [[PhysicalGod Coyote]] has no power over her -- yet almost no one (including the readers) knows who and what Jones is, other than she's "not a robot". Which is less than informative, given that non-robotic beings ''known'' to visit or inhabit the Court range from [[LivingShadow shadow folk]] to extradimensional psychic arthropods to deities [[CrossoverCosmology from three different pantheons]]... so far.

* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is, at a glance, a skeleton in a blue hoodie, sports shorts and slippers who would rather lounge around, make silly jokes and hang out with his friends at the local monster bar and restaurant than try to capture the Human Child. Despite this, [[spoiler:he's the single strongest monster in the entire Underground, and if you try to kill everyone, he ''will'' [[ThatOneBoss give you a bad time]].]] Combined with the fact that [[spoiler:he's thwarted Flowey's plans more than once, there's a broken-down time machine hidden in his bedroom, and he seems to be aware of the game mechanics and the save system]], and an awful lot of fans are left convinced that Sans [[AmbiguouslyHuman isn't even actually a monster at all]]. One thing's for certain, though: whatever his story is, there's a lot more to it than what's shown in the game.

* The G-Man from ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' appears to be a plainly dressed businessman with a [[AccentUponTheWrongSyllable speech impediment]], a bit strange-looking (described as "Emaciated Robert Oppenheimer" by one fan), but still ''basically'' normal-looking. Yet he pulls the weirdest tricks in the whole game, freezing time and walking right into a scene as if through the FourthWall. The way he speaks, the words he chooses, and the references he makes accentuate his oddness. For that matter, looking like a calm and plainly dressed businessman [[DissonantSerenity is itself odd]] when he appears in the middle of a alien-infested war zone. The only hint about who, or rather ''what'', he might actually be comes from WordOfGod stating that the direction they were going for when protraying him was to make him come across as [[HumanoidAbomination something that has assumed]] AFormYouAreComfortableWith, but doesn't care if you're convinced enough by the act to ''remain'' comfortable with it.

* ''NinjaNonsense'' has Onsokumaru, who would be this trope, except for the fact that he's an incompetent and perverted moron. An incompetent and perverted moron who's basically a yellow ball with a face on it and who runs a ninja school. In the first episode he claims to be a hawk, but one of the main characters immediately calls him on the BlatantLies of that.

* Saitama of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. There is no logical explanation for how he obtained his godlike strength. Saitama himself chalks it up to his training regimen... which isn't TrainingFromHell, but just a moderately difficult, realistically plausible for an in-shape human being, strength training regimen[[note]]Each day: 100 sit-ups, 100 push-ups, 100 squats, and a 10 km run[[/note]], so there's no way he could have become so strong just from that. Many characters {{Lampshade}} this, and believe that Saitama has some other secret he isn't telling anybody, but it's suggested that even Saitama doesn't really know how he got so strong.

* Yoda in ''Franchise/StarWars''. Every single alien in the cantina scene of ''A New Hope'' has been given a name, a species, and an extensive backstory in the ExpandedUniverse, but we don't even know what species Yoda is (we do know that there are others of his species, but they're just as mysterious as Yoda is). He's just some little old green guy who happens to be the most powerful Jedi who ever lived. And George Lucas intends it to stay that way; Yoda's history is officially off-limits. The novel ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'' mentions via a Holocron that significant elements of Yoda's backstory are known (at least to some) in-universe, but while the book's first-person narrator says that the tale of how Yoda became a Jedi was very interesting he shares absolutely none of that story with the readers.
