* Franchise/{{Superman}} did this in the story arc ''ComicBook/SupermanGrounded'', just before the ComicBook/{{New 52}}. After feeling he was out of touch with the American people, he decides to remedy the situation by handing in his US citizenship and literally walking all over America looking for people to help[[labelnote:note]]At human speed no less. If he had to save somebody, he'd fly over, help them, then fly back to where he left off and resume walking at human speed.[[/labelnote]]. Amazingly, no-one seemed to notice that Clark Kent was doing the exact same thing at the exact same time in the exact same places, but if anybody did, then Clark could simply claim that he was following Superman, as many other reporters were surely doing.

* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'''s Ryu embodies this trope, wandering the world ([[CapcomVersusWhatever if not]] [[SuperSmashBros multiverse]]) with only the minimum of possessions, seeking worthy opponents to test his skills against. His ending in ''Street Fighter 2'' even calls him simply a "wandering warrior."
