* Every squad has a brave soldier who has to open the UFO doors and take a ton of reaction fire when you're raiding crashed alien ships in ''XCom: UFO Defense''. ''This'' is that soldier. The rest are likely of a rank no lower than Sergeant.
** In all the ''X-Com'' games, every soldier starts off as New Meat, and usually not very good New Meat. The few soldiers that manage to survive the first few missions (in which they are completely unarmoured and wielding peashooters) generally ascend to godhood in terms of ability by the end of the game. Except that, due to variable overflow, any stat growing over 255 will be lowered to (X-255). That means your god-like unit having 2 movement points, or fainting from low stamina.
** The same applies to ''VideoGame/{{Xenonauts}}'', ''X-Com's'' Main/SpiritualSuccessor, although the stat maxima are considerably lower.

* CyranoDeBergerac: Christian obviously lacks combat experience and is bullied by the rest of the cadets. Fortunately for him, [[FireForgedFriends Cyrano helps him to be accepted after Christian demonstrates his valor]] [[BullyingADragon bullying Cyrano]] with a cool HurricaneOfPuns. And then [[RedShirt he dies in combat.]] His friend Ligniere (who is not even a warrior) realizes this and lampshades Christianís status when Christian wants to defy Viscount de Valvert:

Added DiffLines:

* Freshly graduated genin in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' don't get important missions. For a few months they do little more than basic training and chores without leaving the village. An indignant Naruto is berated for thinking that he should be an exception to this.
** Zabuza displays this more, being absolutely amused by how green Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke are.

* ''Film/TheLostPatrol'' has Pearson the new enlistee, a fresh-faced and hopelessly naive boy who joined up because he wanted adventure out of Kipling. Not surprisingly, he's the first of the enlisted men to be killed.

* ''Film/OnlyOldMenAreGoingToBattle'' is about a Soviet fighter plane squadron engaging in regular combat against the Germans during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The film opens with the captain greeting flight school newbies "Darkie" Shchedronov, "Romeo" Sagdullayev, and "Grasshopper" Aleksandrov, and holding them out of a battle due to their inexperience. Towards the end of the film, with Darkie having already been killed in combat, Romeo and Grasshopper, now grizzled veterans, greet a new group of flight school graduates.

* In the [[TruthInTelevision ultra-realistic]] WWII drama ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', some replacements survive and become integrated into the unit... [[RedShirt others don't]]. The veterans either take take under their wings and try to teach them as much as possible to prep them for battle(Guarnere and Bull) or are bitterly hostile towards them (Cobb and Perconte); depending on green recruits tends to get you killed. There's also the fear of getting to know them that comes out as hate:
