* In ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'', [[EccentricMentor Professor Ozpin]] is heavily implied to be this, considering that he cows even the BadAss Adam Taurus into following him with nothing more than a [[TranquilFury glare]].

** [[SmallRoleBigImpact Lyra Caprice]], also from ''[=ViVid=] Strike!'', had retired from fighting so she could help out her family. She mentioned before her final fight that she wanted to give it her all so she could retire without any regrets. Unfortunately, her opponent was Rinne, who not only subjected her to a CurbStompBattle but implied that she was weak and didn't try very hard. Poor Lyra was carried out of the arena on a stretcher in tears.

* [[GentleGiant Sweden]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' was once a terror, controlling the Baltic region and Scandinavia (in fact, he was known as "The Lion of Northern Europe" and "The Supreme Ruler of Scandinavia"), and in one instance defeated an alliance of ''five'' countries. [[note]]Norway and Denmark, Poland-Lithuania, Russia, France, and Spain[[/note]] In the present, though, he's calmed down considerably, puts his efforts and strength toward welfare, and is fond of making furniture and decorative arts.

* ''{{Arcanum}}: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura'' has an interesting example. Late game, you run into [[spoiler: the elven mage Nasrudin, chilling on an uncharted island, after being thought dead for lord knows how many years. What's particularly shocking, however, is that the entire plot up until this point has lead you to believe that you're the living one, the reincarnation of Nasrudin.]].
** William Thorndop, the firearms master is a former highwayman who gave up his violent profession and decided to spent the rest of his life as an Order of Halcyon monk.
* In ''[[FarCry Far Cry 2]]'' Hakim and Iosip (Albanian BadassGrandpa) are retired from their respective nation's armies, but they both still kick ass. And in the first game, you're a retired special forces type (ex-CIA?) until the bad guys blow up your boat. That was a mistake.

* Coll from the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain''. Taran is quite surprised to learn his bald, peace-loving, pig-tending father figure is not only considered a hero, but responsible for rescuing a certain pig from the BigBad's lair. (It was a very special pig.)

Their personalities often break down into two broad categories; some are ZenSurvivor types who've made peace with their past and the fact that they are no longer TheHero, and now just want to get on with their life. Other times, bitter and cynical with age, they turn into a NietzscheWannabe after being put on the [[ScrapHeapHero scrap heap of life]].

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Henry Pupil Senior is an archiver working for Ataidar's royal government and, at some point in his immortal life, he endured "a thousand years of bloodshed". Quelling all the personal demons that come from such an experience might be why he's content to spend his time recording history in a tower.
