* The science-fiction version of Maturin is Adele Mundy in the Creator/DavidDrake RCN series. She'll never not be clumsy on a starship, she's uncomfortable dealing with people rather than computers or books and she'd much prefer collating information to anything, but threaten her or her TrueCompanions and she will ''end'' you, generally with two neat bullet holes where your eyes used to be.

** Harry himself shows shades of this. Most people expect wizards to be all about magic and therefore useless when things get up close. Fortunately for Harry, his staff comes in pretty handy as a club and he even has training in using it similarly to a bo staff. Though he still prefers magic in a fight, if need be Harry can kick ass physically too.

A SmartGuy who Minored in Ass-Kicking is a character who, like targets of TheWorfEffect, is among the strongest in the cast. The difference is that not only do they rarely get beat up, most anyone challenging them [[CurbStompBattle gets their ass handed to them.]]

* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'': A bit of a throwaway scene in the Anime of has an elderly GadgeteerGenius and resident SmartGuy in the church anti vamp squad beset by a dozen zombie vampire assassins who are like vampires, but much more powerful. We cut to other adventurers, and when we cut back they're all dead on the floor while he calmly lights a pipe.

* Yoko, the poster girl for FanService in Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann, decides to retire halfway through the TimeSkip to become a teacher. In one memorable scene, she silences the classroom by throwing a piece of chalk so hard across the room, it embedded itself into the wall. [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask Without taking her eyes off of her book]]. When the students get attacked by a pair of rogue Beastmen in mechs, we quickly find out she hasn't lost her snipin' skillz.

** During the arc where Ryozanpaku invades the American army base on Okinawa, [[spoiler:Akisame takes this trope learns how to hack a complex computer system ''on the spot'' by first asking for help from and then just copying Niijima.]] It's seriously scary how competent that man is.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', Maka spends most of her time reading books and studying for exams. However if you call her on it, she and Soul will beat the ever-loving crap out of you (kinda subverted in that they do get beat up a bit until they TakeALevelInBadass). Also, Kidd counts - obsessed with perfection and generally thinks his way out of situations... however he's a freaking shinigami!

* Compared to the rest of the ''{{Justice League| of America}}'' Franchise/{{Batman}} is a "weak" BadassNormal.

** Hell, the entire Bat family is made of this. Even in a wheelchair, Oracle is still more than capable of defending herself!
** And Alfred, who has an ExpansionPackPast involving careers in the British army and Her Majesty's secret service, among other things.
* ComicBook/LoisLane has a lot of this going on. Sure, she's nowhere near the level of Batman or other BadassNormal superheroes, but the sight of a skinny woman usually seen clutching a reporter's notepad busting herself out of her undercover position as the bride at a mobster's wedding with a machine gun she hid in the wedding cake isn't something that you really expect.
