* [[TruthInTelevision Believe it or not, this is the kind of person espionage agencies look to recruit to become spies.]] Someone ridiculously good looking, extra tall, extremely muscular, or with other abnormal features is going to be easy to spot and pick out of a crowd. But a guy who's 5'9" with medium length brown hair, brown eyes, and an average build? There's tons of them.

* [[{{Twilight}} Bella Swan]], to a ridiculous degree. Entirely average looks, and is nothing special at all--WordOfGod is that she was intentionally left as an ordinary girl so readers could step into her shoes. Strangely, the way she's written it's like StephenieMeyer wants to have her cake and eat it, too--this "completely ordinary protagonist" considers herself above her peers because she reads [[GeoffreyChaucer Chaucer]], [[WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]], [[JaneAusten Austen]], and other classical authors for fun, she's [[InformedAttribute supposedly]] very mature, and she's immune to all vampire abilities, which would seemingly contradict her status as an average girl.

The standout examples, however, are Joe and Mike, who can't really be described as anything more than "white guy with no shirt and red jeans" and "black guy with red shirt and bluejeans" respectively. They look like nothing more than generic enemies you might face in VideoGame/FinalFight.

* Takashi Kosuda from ''Anime/BGataHKei'' is the sex target of the protagonist Yamada because he ''is'' so plain normal and obviously a virgin like her. She immediately forgot his face after he ran away from her question if he's virgin. And other characters forget his name sometimes, calling him "Kobayashi" or "Kosoda" etc. He's plain since birth.

* ''ForBetterOrForWorse''--[[CreatorsPet Anthony friggin' Caine]]. Absolutely average, yet everyone in the cast is convinced he's the best man on earth, and of course the lovely Elizabeth gives up her exciting life teaching in a native village to move back to her home town to settle down and live a nice, respectable life with him.
