* Xander in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. This was so obvious that even [[AlphaBitch Cordelia]] pointed it out by comparing him with [[{{Superman}} Jimmy Olsen]].
** Evolved into a BadassNormal even if he never acted the part.

* The founding members of the DCAU ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' have Batman, as usual. This is the main source of tension in the season one story "Injustice For All". After a near-fatal poisoning, he [[ICanStillFight refuses to stay in sickbay]] and throws himself back into an investigation. J'onn tactfully suggests that besides his natural stubbornness, he doesn't want to show weakness in front of his super-powered teammates.

So when the majority of the members are a FlyingBrick, have mystical skills, wear PoweredArmor, wear a RingOfPower, have a CharlesAtlasSuperpower, or even [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway heart]], TheTeamNormal has nothing. Okay, they can be really smart and have gadgets, but nothing that could confuse them for superpowered people [[ClarksThirdLaw (at least not unless that's what they want you to think).]]

* Zenkichi Hitoyoshi was TheTeamNormal of the Student Council in ''Manga/MedakaBox'' [[spoiler:until Ajimu turns him into an EmpoweredBadassNormal by giving him Parasite Eyes.]] Every other member is either a "Special" (Kikaijima, Akune), a "Plus" Abnormal (Medaka herself), or a "Minus" Abnormal [[spoiler:(Kumagawa)]]. In chapter 116 it turns out that Zenkichi's normality was apparently the only thing about him that really interested Medaka, which leads to a rift in their relationship [[spoiler:after the aforementioned loss of his normality and the induction of five Normal girls into the Council, also introduced by Ajimu]].

* The ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' core line-up, in most of their (squillions of) rosters, is built around Robin, Kid Flash, and Wonder Girl, plus a variety of other characters who almost all have some flavour of superpower. Robin is TheTeamNormal (BadassNormal variety), although he's sometimes joined by a Speedy, mirroring the Batman and Green Arrow roles in the Justice League.

** Tim Drake was the Robin for the 2003 Teen Titans revival, and was joined briefly by Mia Dearden as Speedy. (He was also TheTeamNormal for Young Justice, which had a very similar core lineup to the 2003 Teen Titans, before and after Cissie King-Jones' tenure as Arrowette.)

* Stiles in ''Series/TeenWolf'' is a normal - albeit very bright - human civilian among all manner of supernatural creatures including werewolves (Scott, Derek and Isaac), a kitsune (Kira), werecoyote (Malia) and banshee (Lydia). Even Allison, the only other human in the pack, is a werewolf hunter and therefore just as combat capable as any other creatures so Stiles is a case of TheTeamNormal rather than TokenHuman. He does however, more than prove his worth as the smart guy of the gang and takes to the supernatural world like a duck to water. (And indeed jumps in more eagerly than most of his friends who actually have powers). It also helps that he and [[{{TheChosenOne}} Scott]] are [[{{UndyingLoyalty}} virtually never apart]] so he's in the middle of things more than almost any other character.

* Hank in ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' becomes this in the latter seasons as he is the only normal human in a team with Nick (a [[DemonHunter Grimm]]), Wu [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent some sort of ape-like lychantrope]], Eve/Julliette and Adalind [[WitchSpecies both Hexenbiests]], Rosalee [[{{Kitsune}} a Fuchsbau]] and Monroe [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent a Blubat]]. Of course he's also BadassNormal.

* Kate Bishop / Hawkeye II in the ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' is a BadassNormal on a team that includes a super-soldier, a Kree-Skrull hybrid, a robot, a speedster, a SizeShifter and a wizard. Volume two adds Prodigy, who used to be a mutant but now "just" has the enormous amount of info his power let him absorb (plus his own smarts).

* In season 2 of ''WesternAniation/StevenUniverse'', Connie starts learning how to swordfight, with the explicit goal of helping Steven and the Gems protect the planet. She uses Rose's sword, but the sword itself isn't magic at all. While she can [[FusionDance fuse with Steven]] to become the BadassAbnormal Stevonnie, she herself doesn't have any supernatural powers. She's just a regular human sword with a big-ass sword.
