* Master Chief from ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' is stated to be the "luckiest" of all the Spartans many times throughout the franchise. He is also the only known Spartan to survive (as the player-controlled hero).

* Jason Brody, the protagonist of ''FarCry3'', possesses an ample amount of these. With Skill being his primary asset. His official character profile refers to him as "naturally gifted", and it shows, because he catches on to the ways of the Rakyat and [[MightyWhitey becomes the finest warrior they have]]. By the end of the game, he becomes TheDreaded and gains the Infamy portion of the trope as well.

** Likewise, {{Nightwing}} as well, except he has the leadership part covered. In fact, that's arguably his ''greatest'' attribute, although it's hard to tell since he's good at ALL of them.

* Originally, ''CaptainAmerica'' was supposed to have peak human speed and strength, though whether or not intelligence is included depended on the author. He has since gone onto superhuman territory, but this original Cap was not meant to be capable of anything more than a human could realistically do. * Ozymandias from ''{{Watchmen}}'' emphasizes his SuperIntelligence, but actually possesses ''many'' of these powers, so much more than the other NonPoweredCostumedHero characters that he almost seems to have genuine superpowers. It's established, though, that all his abilities are mundane in origin, and the only true Super in the ''Watchmen'' universe is Dr Manhattan.

* ComicBook/ThePunisher has the kind of skills you'd only expect from people in fiction, namely the ability to kill numerous (evil) people in limited time...and his way of pulling off such feats includes (but is not limited to) [[KnifeNut skill with blades]], [[TortureTechnician knowing how to physically break people]], [[BareFistedMonk the ability to murder a man with his bare hands]], and [[MoreDakka LOTS of]] [[SuperheroPackingHeat guns, bombs and bullets]]. And all of this comes from his ''extensive'' military training, the kind you could realistically get as a Navy SEAL or Marine. (The MAX series, which is far DarkerAndEdgier and is steeped in greater realism than the Marvel-616 universe, takes this and runs it UpToEleven.)
