Generally, they are in there so that the audience has [[AudienceSurrogate somebody to relate to]]. Commonly the main character, and may be a FishOutOfWater or/and an UnluckyEverydude. May or may not be [[ThisLoserIsYou played up as a loser]]. They've probably been dragged into this by a MagneticPlotDevice, and usually [[SeenItAll end up so blasé]] that everything they see only causes a DullSurprise at most. Expect them to become PalsWithJesus.

* UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity is notorious for this, and for good reason. [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]] is invading a Starbucks? [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lykus3n4dl1qeeuteo1_500.jpg Not even enough to get the locals to stop checking their smartphones]]. And this wasn't even on a day with a con nearby!
* When there's any kind of convention or gathering (such as cosplay) that involves people in costumes wandering around, non-participants generally fall into one of three categories -- the people who are accustomed to it; the people who openly gawk at the weirdos in costumes; and the people who determinedly ignore the whole thing.
* In University towns and cities, on any given night, you can determine who's a local, who's a student, and who's not from the area by their reaction to a group of students in fancy dress. The locals have SeenItAll, the students wonder what the occasion is, and the out-of-towners openly gawk.
* Similarly, it's said you can tell who's a foreigner and who's not at Christmas parades in the Netherlands that feature performers disguised as Zwarte Piet ("Black Pete"). That is, mischievous clown figures in {{Blackface}}, imitating the folk character who (to the Dutch, at least), is Santa Claus's black servant. [[ValuesDissonance Since the Netherlands has always had a very small black population, and since Europeans don't tend to associate characters like Zwarte Piet with racial inferiority]], nobody complained that the parades were offensive until quite recently, and even then there was massive backlash when the Piets were made up in all different colors to avoid being offensive. Among the crowds lining the streets for these parades, the Dutch are the ones smiling, laughing, or just passively taking in the spectacle. The foreigners - ''especially'' the Americans - are the ones with their jaws on the ground.

* Arguably, Bowser from [[WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan Super Mario Logan]] is like this. Despite his [[Main/AbusiveParents violence to Junior]], he's relatively unfazed about something. For example, in the "Home Alone 2" video, upon seeing the bodies on the robbers that Junior killed, he responds with, "Alright, just make sure you clean up first." In "Sicken", Cody tries to kill him, due to Junior killing his doll/boyfriend, Ken, however it is unsuccessful.

* Some players in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' choose to reject the Good, Evil, ''and'' Neutral PowersThatBe and remain Mortal for their entire existence. This is generally considered a form of SelfImposedChallenge but some characters that do this are surprisingly effective.

** An even better example is he UnderstandingBoyfriend [[NiceGuy Jeremy]], who gets a front-row seat to both Phineas and Ferb's crazy antics and Candace's attempts to bust them, and just rolls with all of it.

** The Principal of Tomobiki High School is a much clearer example. No matter how much insanity is going on around him he shows little to no concern about it.

** Clara is believably weirded out by her initial meetings with the Doctor, especially when she learns the truth about the TARDIS - all the more that the ship is shown and explained to her in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lOmJMOT_0 a]] no-time-to-explain rush - but afterward, she's surprisingly nonchalant about the Doctor being an alien adventurer. Eleventh expresses a degree of surprise over her being "Okay with that.", sitting in a café and sipping a shake, as if she just hadn't made a weird acquaintance. In later series, Clara's can-do attitude actually becomes a problem. The Doctor openly worries he's encouraged her to become ''too fearless'' [[RealityEnsues and this in turn tempts her]] to become a cheery adventure junky in order to block out personal tragedies she's faced in her ordinary life. [[spoiler:After they're both forced to part ways, Clara takes the trope to its logical conclusion, becoming an adventurer in her very own TARDIS, with her very own companion.]]

* Kaoru from ''Series/{{GARO}}''. She is more affected by Kouga carrying her back to her flat after she was knocked out then being caught in middle of fight between a golden warrior and monster the man she spoke to just a moment ago turned into.
