* Kaiden from ''VideoGame/MassEffect'' and Jacob from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' both stand out as ordinary in their DysfunctionJunction crews. They still have somewhat tragic personal backstories like most teammates, but are too emotionally well-adjusted for it to produce any meaningful conflict. Unfortunately, they both failed at being The Everyman; fans already had [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] with which to identify, and compared to the rest of the cast, Kaiden and Jacob were seen as too boring to be likable.

Both of them having [[MasterOfNone extremely bland power sets]] didn't help either. Kaiden would be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' thanks to having some rewrites to his character and a much better power set but Jacob became even ''less'' likable, especially if he'd been romanced in 2.

* ''GreenLantern'' Hal Jordan and Barry Allen ''TheFlash'' are often thought of as these. Both were normal people who were great at their jobs with relatively normal lives. Until a magic super-advanced alien ring summoned Hal and Barry was struck by a lightning bolt while working in his lab. It helps that they're [[HeterosexualLifePartners best-friends]].

* Recently ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} has been portrayed this way relative to the rest of the Marvel Universe, given that he has no powers and no super-genius/super-[[TheHeart heart]] to make him special. A lot of his conflicts deal more with relationships, disability, and personal/financial issues than with supervillains. Still, the comics reestablish his uniqueness from time to time.

* [[SpiderMan Peter Parker/Spider-Man]] is often held up as the epitome of this within superhero comics, and possibly the key to the franchise success. Admittedly, he's not a strict example, as he's consistently portrayed as responsible, hardworking, highly intelligent, and when the going gets tough, [[YouFightLikeACow a wiseass]]. However, compare him to his contemporaries: he's the average working stiff where the others include [[Franchise/FantasticFour super-scientists]], [[ComicBook/IronMan a millionaire playboy]], [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica an idolized war hero]], and [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor a god]]. Some writers (JoeQuesada especially) tend to turn this into ThisLoserIsYou. He fills the role so perfectly, many other attempts to make an Everyman superhero wind up compared to him.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Kaname Ougi is the very example of what an Everyman would most likely do when things go horrendously wrong. Diethard points out how this makes Ougi important to the Black Knights because they can't live on "stars alone" and need an average person for the common people to relate with.
* Everyman leads occur more than you'd think in romantic[=/=]{{ecchi}} anime and/or arcs, letting the audience project themselves upon him. In {{hentai}}, they're legion.

** A huge part of her appeal also comes from the fact that she is a Muslim girl, reflecting the broader inclusion of different races, religions, and genders in the modern world.

* [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan a.k.a. Ms Marvel]] has been repeatedly described as the true successor to Spider-Man, as the Everyman for millennials. She's dorky, connected to the internet, constantly being underestimated by her conservative family for being unruly, ultimately wants to do some good in the world, and is a fanboy of all the heroes who have come before her.
