Added DiffLines:

* Unlike the other abductees in the Webcomic/WalkyVerse, who were, well, abducted and given powers against their will, Robin snuck into the Head Alien's ship and ''demanded'' she get powers too, mainly her SuperSpeed.

* Though the titular protagonist of ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' initially does her best to [[RefusalOfTheCall resist the call]] and [[TheDutifulSon obey her parents' wishes]], her lifelong wanderlust and love for the ocean means she eagerly leaps headlong into adventure once it becomes clear that her people need her to go [[spoiler: and once she learns [[InTheBlood that her ancestors were in fact explorers]] who ''also'' jumped at the call]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheVictorsProject'': [[spoiler: Cashmere]] is not an active member of the Rebellion. But as soon as she hears about their plan to save Katniss and Peeta, and bring down the system that ruined her life, she arranges a meeting with Beetee, and practically ''begs'' him to let her do something, anything, to help, even if it means getting herself killed in the process.
* in Lorata's ''We Must Be killers, tales from District 2", Claudius is the only District 2 victor to truly want and expect a Rebellion even before the 3rd Quarter Quell is announced, but remains where he is out of UndyingLoyalty to his mentor Lyme. Eight years before the Quell, he gives her an AllTakeNoGive speech about the Capitol, and asks her to take him with her once she's finally had enough. Once that moment finally comes, all Lyme has to do is walk into his bedroom, toss him a bag and ask if he's coming to get his assent.
--> '''Claudius:''' I thought you'd never ask.
* ''Fanfic/Checkmate'' ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8852698/1/Checkmate]]'': by Lorata's FriendlyFandom fellow author Anla'Shok also features a version of Lyme (a long-standing rebel there) having a tribute who did this, a SociopathicHero named Wolfe.
--> Lyme had just had to tell him, show him that he was unique, and he had given her his loyalty. She'd stood by him after the arena, as he woke up a cripple, his pride shattered day after day as he learned to walk gracefully again, to speak with a hoarse voice he couldn't recognize and hated. [[ItsPersonal By the 68th, barely twenty, Wolfe had been obsessed with leveling the power field]].
** Her other Victor, Bahamut, is slower to join the Rebellion, but shows willingness and almost relief when Lyme [[GotVoluntereed makes it sound like an order]]. ''His'' victor, Enobaria is also quick to join Lyme after surviving the Quell, [[BigDamnHeroes saving Lyme from being turned in by a victor who refused her offer]] and admitting that "I want Snow gone. I want to be free. I want to be allowed to be proud to have been born here when it's over."
** District 8's youngest Victor Moire also has shades of this, in addition to TheAtoner after being too scared to volunteer for [[ActionMom Cecelia]], joining the rebel army and putting herself in the line of fire.


* [[ComicBook/WonderGirl Cassie Sandsmark]] went to great lengths to become a superhero, starting at stealing enchanted artifacts to empower herself, and eventually marching right up to the king of the gods and asking him for powers.

Added DiffLines:

* Quentin Coldwater of ''Literature/TheMagicians'' is almost explosive with enthusiasm when he realizes he's just passed the entrance exam for a WizardingSchool, and blithely flings himself into a life of study and magic. No surprise, given that Quentin's been DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/ResshaSentaiToQger'', [[RookieRedRanger Right Suzuki]] jumped so quickly, [[Funny/ResshaSentaiToQger he literally forgot to ask for his]] TransformationTrinket.


* ''Fanfic/SerendipitousFate'' has a villainous example from Lila, who accepts Hawkmoth's offer to get revenge on Ladybug with much more enthusiasm than Chloe.

* Eidolon and Shift from ''Roleplay/DCNation'' are raging, hard-core superhero fanboys who totally jumped at the chance to become heroes in their own right. GreenLantern Travis Grey pickpocketed his ring, used it to clean up his crappy, inner-city neighborhood. When the senior lanterns come back for the ring, he just dares them to take it. Guy is so impressed by this, he offers to train the kid.

* ''SamAndMax'' will take any case from anyone (as long as they get paid) and [[RunningGag always]] eagerly fight to answer the phone when it starts ringing. Sam always wins. (Except when the timestream was messed with, or when [[CueTheFlyingPigs hell froze over.]])

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/ErikaChange'', a ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' doujin in which Erika transfers to Oarai in Miho's stead, Erika is so eager to get involved with tankery that she chooses it as her elective before it's officially offered. Unfortunately for her, she ends up having a HeroicBSOD when she learns that Oarai will be going up against her former school, Kuromorimine (since Erika deeply admires Maho, the commander and Miho's older sister).


-->'''Connie:''' Please, I wanna learn! I mean, I don't know what'll happen in the future, but if something dangerous comes along, I don't wanna be a burden, I wanna help! I wanna be there for Steven, to fight by his side! The Earth is my home too, can't I help protect it?

* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is the son of the late Rose Quartz, leader of the Crystal Gems, and can't wait to to be like the other Crystal Gems and help them save the world. Unfortunately, he still doesn't have a [[HowDoIShotWeb very good handle on his powers]]...and furthermore, he's beginning to realize that there are some serious downsides to the whole 'magical hero' business.

** Connie [[IJustWantToBeSpecial is rather of envious]] of Steven's "magical destiny" and [[InsecureLoveInterest thinks he'd be disinterested in someone as "normal" as her]]. She's rather enthralled to be involved in Steven's magical adventures and immediately seconds Steven's suggestion to become Pearl's [[TheApprentice apprentice]] in swordsmanship.

** Even when she was [[JustLikeRobinHood stealing from the rich to give to the poor]], Z from ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' wanted to do more to help people. When she and her best friend Jack finally got arrested, she jumped at the chance to be [[TradingStripesForBars part of something bigger and makes a difference]], compared to his [[RefusalOfTheCall reluctance]].
