** In response to the above disaster, the Citadel made it illegal to open uncharted mass relays. Ironically this led to the First Contact War, when a group of human explorers ran afoul of a turian patrol [[PoorCommunicationKills that didn't bother to explain]] why opening mass relays willy-nilly was a bad idea.

Added DiffLines:

** The game is set in a fantasy analogue to the Age of Exploration, with plenty of rival explorers to get first dibs on finding Discoveries if you're too slow, and the requisite [[TheEmpire empire]] even being a stand-in for the real-life Spanish Empire during their expansionist heyday.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Hilda}}'' is the [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] girl who's insatiably adventurous. Unfortunately for her, she has to [[CountryMouse move from the wilderness to the city]], but nevertheless seeks out adventure and mystery wherever she can.


* ''Franchise/WallaceAndGromit'': In the short film, ''WesternAnimation/AGrandDayOut'', Wallace & Gromit are off to explore the moon, which turns out to be made of green cheese.

-->'''Vyse: (wistfully)''' "I want to see what's out there... to see what lies beyond the sunset."

*''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''
**[[CoolOldGuy Pikango]] travelled across much of Hyrule during his youth, so he's familiar with most of continent's major regions and landmarks. Old age has done little to slow him down, as he continues to search for new vistas for his paintings.
**You can also find the travelling merchant, [[LegacyCharacter Beedle]], in each region too. He'll usually be near one of the horse stables, which are more like frontier settlements, but you'll occasionally see him on the road instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheOrville'' sets itself up as a comedic parody of ''Star Trek'', but makes a point of of keeping the wonder of exploration a central theme.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Rimworld}}'', choosing the "Rich Explorer" starting scenario gives you a single colonist, stated to be a wealthy glitterworld citizen who got fed up with the boredom of VR simulations and dealing with people and so decided to pack up some essentials and head off alone to a rimworld planet to settle the frontier. The Rich Explorer is more well-equipped than the crash survivors from the default scenario - they start with a [[EnergyWeapon Charge Rifle]] (one of the best personal weapons available) and the technology for basic gun turrets already unlocked, but they are alone, which limits how much work can be done early on.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/OnePiece''


** ''VIdeoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' features the heroes as this. Though things generally go somewhat badly for them as well.

** ''VIdeoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' features the heroes as this. Though things generally go somewhat badly for them as well. You'll spend a lot of time wading through enemies who got there first and make new allies (who also got there first). But with a bit of determination and a lot of explosions you can carve out a new place for your fellow travellers.
