* Policarpo Avendaño, the entertainment commentator of ''[[Series/ThirtyOneMinutos 31 minutos]]'' is so average to the point that his name alone is a [[Main/UpToEleven synonym for anything utterly normal and boring!]] That is, until it is discovered that he's actually [[spoiler:bald]].

Most of the time he's the the hero of the story.

* Just about ''any'' male character in a {{harem| genre}} manga/anime or BishoujoGame or any manga/anime with a large female cast will be average and easy for the audience to project onto as possible and will still end coming out on top, saving the world and getting all the girls to love him without really even trying.

The Ridiculously Average Guy is pretty much middle-of-the-road in all things. He's not ugly, but he's not particularly handsome (or pretty) either. He's not a moron, but he's not one of the best in his class either. (He will probably tend towards the low end on grades, possibly even failing his entrance exams, but he's not portrayed as aggressively stupid, either.) He has no special powers, even if the rest of the cast does pretty much as a rule.[[note]]Or even have a power that doesn't make him stand out -- like the power to temporarily negate other powers.[[/note]] He's not a complete weakling, but nor does he excel in any physical ways.

* Chapter 180 of ''Manga/TheDisastrousLifeOfSaikiK'' introduced Hiroshi Satou, a second year high school student who is ridiculously average in every aspect, ranging from his name[[note]]Satou is the most common Japanese surname, and Hiroshi is also a very common Japanese male name[[/note]], to his grades[[note]]he is always ranked exactly in the middle of his cohort[[/note]] and even his social circle. This impresses the main character [[ComicallyInvincibleHero Kusuo Saiki]] so much that he declared Satou to be a "genius of normalcy" and tries to [[IJustWantToBeNormal emulate him]]. And of course, Satou, being the average guy he is, completely fails to notice Saiki and his not-so-normal school life.

* Bartz, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', is not only this in-game (he's the only character [[spoiler:who isn't royalty]], for one), he's also this ''across the entire Franchise/FinalFantasy series.'' He's fairly generic-looking compared to the more {{Bishonen}} male protagonists like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Cecil]] or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]], is [[WalkingTheEarth a wanderer for the sheer hell of it]] (and goes back to doing that at the end of the game), and is a MasterOfNone (which is a base for the game's Job System, but even in ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'', he's not much of a specialist). Top that with the fact that he is ''incredibly'' easygoing, and there you have it.
