* Edward Teach, aka "Blackbeard," retired from piracy after ditching most of his crew and settled down to live as a country gentleman in South Carolina. This didn't keep him from taking the old ship out every once in a while and indulging in some piracy when he got bored. Bribes to the governor and local judges ensured that the authorities looked the other way.

** Yagrum Bagarn, [[spoiler:[[TheLastOfHisKind the last living]] [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]]]], is one of the residents of Fyr's Corprusarium and also fits the trope. He was a [[UltimateBlacksmith Master Crafter]] in service to Lord Kagrenac who spent time [[DimensionalTraveler traveling to "outer realms"]]. When he returned to find his people gone, he traveled all across Tamriel searching for any other surviving [[spoiler:Dwemer]]. He caught the Corprus Disease and was forcibly retired. He is still in possession of a full set of Dwemer armor, a stash of Dwemer coins, and the legendary hammer Volendrung.

* [[LastOfHisKind Joe Colton]] from ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation''. The last scene of the initial trailer features Colton kicking ass by shooting at Cobra mooks with an assault rifle while in the bed of a fishtailing [[CoolCar El Camino]]. Considering he's played by BruceWillis, this comes at no surprise.

* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander's]] shop teacher Mr. Hanson in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-32204-3/dogbertcarroll+Lucky+at+Cards.htm Lucky at Cards]]'' reveals that not only is he a former demon hunter, but most shop teachers are. According to him, it's because shop teachers can be missing a few pieces and people just assume they were clumsy. He advises Xander to get some teaching credits when he can, in case he lives long enough to be forced to retire.

* In ''Literature/ForgingHephaestus'', Fornax was one of the most badass supervillains of his day, able to go toe-to-toe with most capes and win. Only Lodestar was able to beat him in a one-on-one fight, and only after a titanic battle. After the rowdiness of his youth, Ivan Gerhardt, formerly known as Fornax, works as a corporate middle manager and does his best to preserve his secret identity. He lives alone, except for every other weekend, when his kids come to visit. They have absolutely no idea who their mild-mannered father used to be (their mother does, but she's keeping quiet). Ivan still has occasional involvement in the Guild of Villainous Reformation, but only as a representative of all retired villains. He wears a generic-looking mask, while at Guild HQ, and everyone calls him Pseudonym. Only the top brass know of his former identity, well, and his new apprentice Tori. Despite being retired for a decade, Pseudonym is still in his prime and extremely dangerous when pissed off.
