* Knox, from ''[[VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines]]'' is a ghoul, and very, very aware that he cannot reasonably be expected to survive a fight against a vampire. Which is why he cons you into doing it for him.

* ''Manga/VinlandSaga:'' Einar is one of the only main characters who has no fighting skills and has never killed anyone. He also hates warriors until he meets Thorfinn. That said, he manages to fight off three farmers single-handed in a fist fight, and displays impressively quick thinking during Thorfinn's knife-fight with a bear. And more impressive again trying to protect Thorfinn from Hild.

* ''Series/TheSentinel'': Blair Sandburg. Unless he has a vending machine, a firehose, a walking stick, or some baseballs handy.

* Yuuno Scrya from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is the only Mage in the cast without a magical weapon (he had given it up to the series's titular ActionGirl -- for whom it was much better suited anyway), so his contribution in battle is largely limited to offering backup, rather than throwing around spectacular offensive spells. He's actually extremely handy in a fight, but he ends up [[PutOnABus accepting a position in the library of all knowledge]] where he can pursue his passions as an archeologist/scholar (and give more screentime to the female cast). After that, he participates in only one more fight, and the rest of the time he just researches whatever big nasty or mystery the main cast is dealing with now.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Davos claims to be a poor fighter which is probably true as he lacks four fingers on his right hand and never had any highborn training. His mind and no-nonsense attitude is better than any sword he could use.

* Thomas of ''SuikodenIII'' has the same Star as the previous two names' badass heroes, but if you're expecting Kung-Fu Badass... you're sorely mistaken. He's rather meek in personality and is quite terrible in combat. Fitting since he's not a fighter, but a businessman. However, he makes up for it for being TheDeterminator. If you bother to level him up to be on par with the other main characters, he can be competent in a fight, but most players ''don't'' bother since he starts all the way down at level 1 and even when built up he'll still only be an average fighter. [[MagikarpPower ...Until you realize he has a ton of skill slots and, when built right, can become pretty nasty in his own right]].

* ''Franchise/TheWitcher'': Dandelion is no coward, more than willing to stick his neck out for his friends, well-connected and usually a font of useful information. However he is very much a SpoonyBard and not much of a fighter compared to most mundane enemies he makes (let alone the things professional monster hunter Geralt deals with on a daily basis).
