** Julian is the New Meat in the early seasons, but [[spoiler:gains the respect of the other cops by beating the hell out of a prisoner who tried to give his partner HIV]]. He is the one who trains Tina in the later seasons, so the same character gets to experience the trope from both sides.

While [[spoiler: the rest of the newbie pilots are killed soon after, Kat becomes an experienced pilot that rivals Starbuck in terms of skill and attitude by the time of her death.]] Likewise, of the initial recruits, Hot Dog is [[spoiler: the only one to survives the ending of the series.

He's less fortunate than the average New Meat; the crew of a Klingon vessel accepts him, but only as the ship's resident ChewToy. He seems to be a bit of an unlucky klutz, so they figure he's drawing any misfortune the ship and crew might suffer onto himself. Most of the time, said misfortune is more humiliating than harmful.
* Holly Gribbs in the ''Series/{{CSI}}'' {{Pilot}}: fresh out of the academy, visits each cast member in turn to introduce them to the audience, is given a pep-talk (by Catherine, who would later regret it) about the job, and is killed in her very first case when the suspect returns to the scene of the crime.

** ''Series/{{CSI}}'' had a little of this with Langston during season 11. He was a middle-aged guy but still new to the CSI team.
* The miniseries ''Series/{{Hornblower}}'', belonging to WoodenShipsAndIronMen genre, had a couple of examples from the Navy. Sometimes the seasoned and experienced sailors were patient enough with them, sometimes... not so much.
** The series starts with Hornblower coming aboard ''Justinian''. Luckily for him, it's not a war yet, and he has some time to adapt. However, he's a midshipman who is older that he should be (he's 17, and 12 was considered the ideal age to become a middie). He vomits while the ship is harboured, to the amusement of his colleagues, and he's afraid of heights (great when he has to climb to adjust the sails). Plus, he has to deal with a sadistic bully. When the war starts, he and some of his fellow middies get transferred to a frigate, where he shows his SinkOrSwimMentor that not only he has it together, but that he's TheHero with promising future. His division who originally had little respect for him start to worship him and he inspires nothing but absolute loyalty in them.
** Mr Wellard is a New Meat of a Midshipman in the second instalment. He demonstrates his being green by vomiting when he sees a sailor get splattered on deck, and by being incapable to make lower-deck seamen shut up and break their fight. (However, the sailor's disrespect get Lts Hornblower and Kennedy absolutely furious on his behalf, and they defend him.) Their mad Captain chooses Wellard for a whipping boy because he can't flog his lieutenants. The ship's doctor treats his severe wounds by laudanum, and he spends much of "Mutiny" being high. In "Retribution", he gets a chance to prove himself competent and brave. [[spoiler: However, he dies during a battle when their ship is taken over by their Spanish prisoners.]]
** Jack Hammond is eager and enthusiastic to serve in the Navy, however, he's not suited for it. He can't learn naval signals, he's squeamish and panicky. He freaks out when he witnesses a flogging and then when he gets sputtered with a little boy's blood. Even seaman Matthews who's kind and fatherly and who originally tried to help him loses his patience with him. When his Captain tries to convince him that he should choose a different and less violent career, he insists that it's his dream and that his family expects him to serve in the Navy. [[spoiler:He doesn't make it, but gets redeemed before he dies. His last deeds were brave.]]
* Timothy [=McGee=] in ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. For the first couple of seasons, he is extremely inexperienced and prefers to hide behind his computer than to do field work. His teammates, particularly Tony, enjoy taunting him, often calling him "Probie" or other variations thereof. Within the course of a few seasons, however, he has matured greatly - after being promoted to Senior Field Agent [[spoiler: when Gibbs unexpectedly retires to Mexico]], he relishes in his new responsibility and earns the respect of his coworkers.

* ''Film/StarshipTroopers'': A common phrase used to refer to new recruits is "fresh meat for the grinder". Quite funny, in a horrible sort of way. At the end Rico's decimated unit receives reinforcements, all of which are teens fresh out of bootcamp (earily reminiscent of World War II footage of the Nazis throwing in ChildSoldiers by the end of the war). Rico quips that he and his second-in-command Ace ([[DawsonCasting 20-year old soldiers]]) are the "old men" now before proceeding to give the arrivals the exact same speech that the unit commander whom Rico replaced gave when he, Ace, and Dizzy joined the unit.

* For all intents and purposes, Emil from ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' is this. He's been in the army for less than two years at the start of the story and his crewmates are either more than a decade older or ChildSoldiers all grown up. His pre-story job was in a DemolitionsExpert unit, which means he never fought a troll up close before Chapter 3. He proves himself quite quickly, and the "being a newbie to things encountered by the crew" slack gets picked up by a non-immune civilian stowaway.

Also known as '''Fresh Meat'''. Still wet behind the ears and fresh out of boot camp, the New Meat may look like a soldier, but he lacks the combat experience to actually perform up to the fighting standard of TheSquad. Generally young; some men may characterize him as [[ChildSoldiers a child]].
