** Notably averted by his grandson Touta in ''Manga/UQHolder'' (much to the shock of [[ParentalSubstitute Yukihime]]), who points out that the only reason he wanted to get stronger was so he could get permission to leave his village.

* As a BloodKnight, this is Ryu's goal in the ''StreetFighter'' series. Others have more pragmatic goals, like revenge, money, fame, conquest, [[DeathSeeker finding someone to kill them]]...
* In ''Growlanser 2'', Wein's goal is to become an Imperial Knight. Whether he accomplishes this depends on what branches of the story you take. And even if he gets the title, the plot has long since moved on to more important matters, like the fate of the world.

* At the start of ''Manga/DragonBall'' Goku wants to become the strongest fighter on Earth and fight powerful opponents. He achieves this goal when he's a teenager. After learning that he's an alien and is pitiful weak compared to the true monsters in the universe, he refocuses his goal to becoming the strongest in the universe.

* This is the basic goal of the ''PunchOut'' games. The new Wii game takes it to the next level-after Little Mac wins the championships, he's then forced to defend his newly won titles against disgruntled opponents looking for a rematch. They've uped their game, so he has to prove he ''deserves'' the title. After ''that'', he realizes there's nowhere to go but down, and goes out with a bang.
* ''FossilFighters'' toys with this. You are trying ToBeAMaster--and you become one! In fact, you become one only about halfway through the game. However, as it turns out, there is still a ''lot'' more going on despite your mastery, and you will have to actually ''use'' your master's skills.
* ''[[SummonNight Summon Night: Swordcraft Story]]'' - The first Swordcraft Story game's overall focus is mostly about becoming a "Craftlord", which is basically a "Master" of weapon crafting/fighting. There's still a plot and antagonist, but the game doesn't end until you become Champion. The game's two successors still retain this trope to some degree, but it's downplayed quite a bit compared to the first.

The setup is deceptively simple: InAWorld where [[SeriousBusiness everything else revolves around]] ''one'' thing -- [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Children's]] CardGames, {{pirate}}s, {{ninja}}s, anything -- a young lad (or lass in some cases) in his/her teens (or younger), usually an IdealHero, will set out on a quest to, well, To Be a Master of ''whatever'' their world deems important, be it Monsters, CardGames, guardians, [[Manga/YumeiroPatissiere sweets]], or even ''fashion''...

* Travis Touchdown's quest in ''NoMoreHeroes'' is to be the greatest asssassin. Of course, the whole thing is quite thoroughly {{deconstructed}}. For starters, Travis is a deluded {{Otaku}} BloodKnight who may qualify as a VillainProtagonist, and [[spoiler:the entire thing is a con set up by [[FemmeFatale Sylvia]].]]
* ''Homeworld 2'' has an ancient prophecy about the three Great Hyperspace Cores awakening Sajuuk, the god of destiny and creation (actually, a big-ass ancient starship hidden in a black hole cluster). Supposedly, the one who unites the Three will get to be the Sajuuk-khar, Manipulator of the Great Maker. When Karan Sjet first hears about it while running from the Vaygr, she deduces that Makaan must also know about it and seek to aquire both the Bentusi and the Hiigaran core. Naturally, the world is doomed if he succeeds so she decides to beat him to it. The thing is, by doing that she accidentally fulfilled the prophecy herself and became the Sajuuk-khar - which proved really useful when Hiigara was attacked by Planet Killers whose armor was impeneterable to every weapon except Sajuuk's WaveMotionGun. With the ship also activating an ancient hypergate network spanning the galaxy and having the most powerful weapons & hyperdrives of the known universe, she was practically worshipped as a living goddess (her people never became atheists during their troubled history).
