* Some version of Franchise/{{Batman}} depict him (at least during the early stages of his crimefighting career) as an "urban legend" who occasionally appears from out of the shadows to take down a criminal and then vanishes back into the night.

* ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'' has Alternis serve as a textbook case for Edea, appearing out of nowhere to help protect her when the party is [[CutsceneIncompetence losing in a cutscene]], refusing to actually join, and then leaving. [[spoiler: It's actually Ringabel from ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'', wearing his old armor to be indistinguishable from the local Alternis.]]

* Mihara Oujirou in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'' is a shounen example, although the main character ''is'' still a cute girl.

* [[Anime/CodeGeass Zero]] fulfills a similar role for Nunnally in her manga spinoff: ''NightmareOfNunnally''... sort of. He shows up out of nowhere whenever Nemo is in the middle of a battle, and usually brings about chaos, allowing Nemo to win or escape. It can be seen most obviously near the end, where Zero acts as a SupportingLeader along with Euphie, Suzaku, and their combined armies.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}: In the original ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'' miniseries, Clark was this til he was forced to save the space plane in front of a huge crowd. In ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', Wonder Woman commented that Superman could have chosen to remain behind the scenes and did his superheroing in secret but chose to be as obvious as possible. In ''ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark'', he's doing just that, staying out of the way of the New52 Superman but still performing feats of bravery invisibly.

* Tooya from ''AyashiNoCeres''. Bonus points for wearing a BadassLongcoat, shades, ''and'' for being [[TheStoic stoic]].
* Tamahome of ''FushigiYuugi'' sort of falls into this trope at first. "Sort of" because Mysterious Protectors don't usually ask for money back, and because we get to know who he is soon enough.
