* Shingo Yabuki and Goro Daimon from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' are the only characters in the recurring Japan Team without any special powers, though in ''2000'' Seth temporarily joins as a third Team Normal alongside PoisonousPerson Lin in the Benimaru Team.

* Stryker is the only ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' hero with no special powers whatsoever. He compensates with lots and lots of police ordinance. Sonya also qualifies as she relies on weaponry and tools to fight. In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', Jacqui Briggs is the only member of Cassie's team who doesn't have any magical abilities instead relying on her [[ArmCannon wrist-mounted guns.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The original Silver Age version of the League, in addition to a handful of BadassNormal characters (namely Batman and later also Green Arrow), had the genuinely-normal Snapper Carr, an enthusiastic teenager who the League let hang around their base and act as record-keeper for their adventures. Notably, he was less a TagalongKid (trouble tended to find him whenever he got into trouble at all, and he saved the team about as often as that happened), and closer to something between TheWatson and the TeamPet.


* ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' have two: Black Widow and Hawkeye, both highly-trained [=SHIELD=] agents armed with various gadgets (Hawkeye's [[TrickArrow trick arrows]], Widow's stunners and high-tech tonfas).

** ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'': The anniversary team-up episode saw the heroes teaming up with a group consisting of veteran Rangers, each one from a previous season. All but one of these Rangers had a special super power they could use in civilian mode. [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Kira]] had a sonic scream, [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Tori could control water]], [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Xander]] was a wizard with control over plants and [[Series/PowerRangersSPD]] had PsychicPowers. [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Adam]] had no civilian powers and was just a really good martial artist. It should be noted that the other four Rangers came from Disney Era seasons which often gave the entire powers to be accessed in human form while Adam came from the Saban Era where civilian powers were usually limited to one or two members of the team.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'': Lady is the only playable character in the entire franchise with no demonic powers. She instead gets by with determination, skill and a lot of bullets at her disposal.


** This is actually a rule at his company, Primatech, one normal partner and one metahuman partner per team. Naturally, this pretty much requires them to be BadassNormal.

Added DiffLines:

* Elisa Maza on ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', though this actually became a superpower by comparison, especially during the World Tour arc. Being a normal human meant that Elisa could protect her friends when they turned to stone during the day.

* Series/{{Angel}} had a rather interesting relationship with this trope. The series begins with a trio consisting of Angel a centuries old vampire, Doyle a [[HalfHumanHybrid half demon]] with {{Precognition}} and Cordelia who initially has not powers or combat training. Midway through season 1, Doyle passes on his precognitive powers to Cordelia before making a HeroicSacrifice and the role of team normal is filled by Wesley a Watcher from Buffy's show. Later on Gunn a demon hunter with no powers and Fred a physicist and inventor are added to the group raising the number of normal humans on the good guys side to three. By the end of the series, Cordelia, Wesley and Fred are dead and Spike another vampire and Illyria an [[TheOldGods Old One]] have joined the team leaving Gunn as the only normal human among the main cast.

* Rebecca from ''Manga/EdensZero'' is the only member of the main cast who either doesn't have [[MagicByAnyOtherName Ether Gear]] or isn't an android with {{Magitek}} functions. However, she still holds her own weight as TheGunslinger with ImprobableAimingSkills, and is repeatedly said to have the potential to [[EmpoweredBadassNormal learn her own Ether Gear]].
