** In William King's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} SpaceWolf novel ''Grey Hunter'', Ragnor presses into battle with young Marines. The sight of them makes him wonder whether he had ever looked as green to his superiors -- and conclude that he had. (Though a long time ago.)

* Poor, poor {{Havemercy}}'s Balfour, who has been subject to the other Airmen's harsh treatment, especially [[JerkJock Rook's]], even ''after'' he became an integral part of their ranks.

* Pretty much the new recruits in the ''FinalFantasyTactics'' series. They join the party with no items equipped, no abilities mastered, and may be underleveled depending on the party's average level. By ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', new recruits come with basic armor and a basic weapon that teaches them their first ability for their job.
* Initiate Reddins in VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}, who made the tragic mistake of not realizing that when several heavy, explosion-like sounds go off right next to you, you should probably move. Periphary text within the game notes that her funeral got canceled. Harsh.

* 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:

* 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.
