Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A Non-Action Guy is a male who is not heavily endowed with a certain quality that's expected of males in shows; usually courage or combat ability. He's usually a sidekick; often to the Action Girl (or Action Girlfriend), or sometimes to an entire Five-Man Band. Expect him to need occasional rescuing. This combo has the added danger of the audience seeing him as The Chick, a role that can de-masculinize him or just make him annoying in the eyes of viewers.
The Non-Action Guy seems much more likely to be played for comedy than the traditional female version of The Chick. While women are not expected to kick ass (and thus those that do are exceptional), men often are—so a Non-Action Guy's lack of ability is written as something to laugh at.
Often he'll either grow into a more action-oriented role, become ignored, or become the Butt-Monkey as punishment for his failure at masculinity. A common, more acceptable practice is to put him on the Mission Control, where he can be of actual help without having to use any sort of action skill.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })To avoid the negative connotations associated with this character type, it might be combined with other tropes such as the Loveable Rogue or Smart Guy where such a character may be unsuitable for action due to age, build, infirm, upbringing, or simply because it would be a waste of his talent. However, they make up for it by being a Guile Hero, The Chessmaster, or The Strategist. It sometimes goes hand in hand with Con Men Hate Guns or Thou Shalt Not Kill. The Non Action guy on a team may not literally be "no-action", but they may be the weakest member as far as offensive power is concerned. But it's not really what they are there to do. They may make up for it by using purely psychological tactics. They may also be a Terror Hero or a Master of Illusion, deception, or any various methods of combat on the cerebral level. Very often, either a Gentleman Detective or Gentleman Thief.

If he's the protagonist, then he's likely an Action Survivor. If he's the Villain, he's likely a Non-Action Big Bad. In RPGs, he will often be the Utility Party Member. Compare Unfazed Everyman.

Topher Grace's character in Predators is introduced this way. In a team of professional and criminal badasses, he is an unassuming doctor with no particular combat or survival skills. The badasses spend most of the movie protecting him or at least trying to keep him from getting them all killed, until the end, when he reveals his true nature as a murderous psychopath.

Karal in the Mage Storms trilogy of the Heralds of Valdemar. He's a priest in training, is a certified Nice Guy, has no magical or psychic powers (except for one, which is completely passive), and has absolutely no interested in heroing. It doesn't stop him from playing a pivotal role in saving the world.

Of your allies at the Outpost in Starbound, the guys are prone to this. Koichi is a nerdy scholar who looks like he'd break his spine from lifting anything heavier than a book, Tonauac is a sedentary temple caretaker with a habit of falling asleep on his feet, and the Baron, although quite the adventurer in his youth, prefers to sit back and let the new generation do their thing. Conversely, your female allies (save for Esther, who's technically retired, although she used to be Grand Protector) are badass Action Girls; Nuru is a hunter prodigy and several times over champion of the Floran hunting challenge, while Lana is a ranking member of the Apex resistance who leads from the front. Tellingly, during the Glitch Artifact mission, both girls come to your aid in defending the keep, while the guys (including the Baron, who owns said keep) sit back.

Dragon Quest VIII has King Trode, who spends most of the game in a Baleful Polymorph. Much like Kraden from the Golden Sun series, he seems unfazed by the constant battles with monsters. However, he doesn't go into the dungeons himself with the rest of the party, instead staying outside to take care of the wagon and his daughter, Medea. He can be seen in one of Yangus's attacks, Golden Oldies, where a large group of old men bum rush the enemy.

Fone Bone from Bone — all the threats he faces in The Valley are so much larger than him that he invariably has to run away or get rescued. He's no coward, but his courage involves giving moral support and good advice to resident Action Girl Thorn, rather than busting heads himself.

Elend Venture of Mistborn is this, being a nobleman who prefers philosophizing and reading. Although at one point he does rush off, armed only with a duelling cane to rescue his girlfriend, Vin. She winds up saving him (though the cynical Vin was very touched that he actually cared enough about her to risk his own life). [[spoiler: Elend takes a level in Badass in the third book, becoming not only a full Mistborn, but with the original power level rather than the modern diluted level. He never really gets as good of handle on his powers as Vin and would never claim to be as good in a fight, but he does have much much more raw power, when that matters.
Spook from the same series is pretty tough by normal standards, having grown up on some very nasty streets, but he's only a Tineye (he has Super Senses but is otherwise a normal teenage boy) in a setting where there are lots of people with superpowers that actually have meaningful combat applications. As a result he never does anything more than scouting, althoug he's quite good at it. In the third book he takes a level in badass, using his Tin powers nonstop until he gains Daredevil like combat sense. Plus he ends up gaining the power to burn Pewter as well. Then after Sazed ascends he becomes the planets only and final Mistborn.
Sazed subverts this. He insists that he's no a warrior but is perfectly capable of holding his own against for more powerful characters such as Marsh, whom he comes within seconds of defeating during their only fight.

Chuck:
Chuck Bartowski was this for the first two seasons until an upgrade in the Intersect in his brain at the end of Season 2 allowed him to access some serious fighting skills in an instant.
Even before he got the Intersect 2.0, however, Chuck had already picked up some serious marksmanship ability thanks to years of training on Duck Hunt.

Caleb from Ex Machina is not at all athletic or tough, which is unsurprising since he's an office worker. His contribution to the third act is to hack Nathan's security protocols, after which he's laid out by a single punch while Kyoko and Ava confront and overpower Nathan.

Ib has Garry, who begins his appearance by lying down on the ground and painfully (nearly) dying. You get to save him. Especially evident when you contrast him with Ib (a 9-year-old girl), who is the one to do the saving, and solve pretty much everything. However, Garry does save Ib if you complete a certain event a certain way. If not, Ib has to save him instead.

Yuuno Scrya from Lyrical Nanoha is the only Mage in the cast without a magical weapon (he had given it up to the series's titular Action Girl — for whom it was much better suited anyway), so his contribution in battle is largely limited to offering backup, rather than throwing around spectacular offensive spells. He's actually extremely handy in a fight, but he ends up accepting a position in the library of all knowledge where he can pursue his passions as an archeologist/scholar (and give more screentime to the female cast). After that, he participates in only one more fight, and the rest of the time he just researches whatever big nasty or mystery the main cast is dealing with now.
It's possible that Yuuno remains a Non-Action Guy because his one demonstrated offensive ability, forcing someone to teleport off the field against their will, offers so many unpleasant possibilities that neither he nor the series creators want to go there.
Genya Nakajima is this for his family, with his late wife and all six of his adoptive daughters being powerful mages in their own right. That's not to say that he's useless, it's just that his skills are as an officer rather than a combatant.

Fire Emblem has the Priest Class (a counterpart to the female Cleric and Troubadour classes); they can only use staves, which are usually used for healing, but they can also be used to cast Standard Status Effects. The Elibe games also include a Distaff Counterpart to the Dancer class, the Bard class. The bards in those two games (Elphin, a sickly tactician in Binding Blade, and Nils, a young boy from Blazing Blade) are definitely not combat material, and unlike priests, who can promote into classes that can effectively fight back, bards are out of luck. The herons in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance are similar in that regard as well.

Stand Still, Stay Silent is set in a Plague Zombie ridden world in which only five neighboring and relatively culturally close nations have survived. People in combat jobs are hence much more likely to face a Plague Zombie than another human being and enough of the population is The Immune that those who are not can be kept away from the action, regardless of gender, with the possible sole exception of mages. The expedition's Little Stowaway is a male non-immune who had no idea he was a mage until he ended up with the crew, which makes him the only one of the four males in the main cast (including The Medic) with absolutely no combat skills.

Yoki from Fullmetal Alchemist is an ex-pencil pusher surrounded by numerous Master Alchemists, BeastMen, and Homunculi. Having no useful skills of any kind quickly pushes him into the position of The Load, though he does get one badass moment (running over Pride with a car.)

Kabuto from Psyren, who's the only person who can't boost his physical power using PSI, so has to resort to using his ability to sense incoming attacks to run away praying he dodges in time. That changes after he almost dies, discovers his Mental World and learns boosting his physical power.

Tanda and Chagum in Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit, the former being pretty much the male version of The Chick to Action Girl Balsa, and the latter being a prince with no combat training (though Balsa does give him a little training while he's in her care) and serving as the series' Living MacGuffin.

Ron Weasley is somewhat this in the Harry Potter series. We don't see him get to duel like Harry (though neither much Hermione in that matter.) This is played up more in the films than in the books.
Neville Longbottom is a bigger example of this, being pretty timid and unassuming. Starting in Book 5, he has Character Development and becomes more confident in himself. He tops it off by using Gryffindor's sword to slice Nagini off (and thus, giving Harry the edge needed to settle things with Voldemort.)
Ron also bleeds over into Action Survivor: he doesn't exactly seek out danger and thrills but is pretty good at reacting to the stuff his friends drag him into ("ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?!")

In a series where virtually every naval protagonist is tremendously tactically gifted, the Honorverse's Admiral Augustus Khumalo, station commander of the Talbott Quadrant, is notable for bucking that trend rather violently. A pedestrian tactician at best — and not even considered that before he Took a Level in Badass — Khumalo instead distinguishes himself by being a deft politician, exceptionally capable administrator, and — critically — excellent judge of his subordinates' capabilities. The moment that got the entire Royal Manticoran Navy to look up and realize his excellence as an officer came not from a spectacular display of tactical prowess, but instead of taking a chance and risking his own career by backing a subordinate's initiative and tactical genius. As a result, despite the Talbott quadrant becoming an absolute hotbed of tactical genius with the arrival of Aivars Terekhov, Michelle Henke, Naomi Kaplan, Michael Oversteegen, and Abigail Hearns, among others, he remains in overall command because his skills as an administrator and politician make him the ideal ultimate military authority in a corner of space which is rather distant from Manticore's home system and government.

Waldo Butters, M.E., in The Dresden Files. He is, as Thomas insists on pointing out, kind of a coward, and when the baddies wind up targeting him in Dead Beat, spends most of the book hiding from them. However, this is the Dresdenverse, so he eventually winds up saving Harry by attacking Cassius with his teeth. He also gets non-action awesome cred for helping with the Dinosaur Incident.

Power Rangers:
In the transition from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers to Power Rangers Zeo, Badass Bookworm Billy Cranston was demoted from a full-fledged team member to a Non-Action Guy.
Ironically, the reverse often happens in more recent PR. Most notable is Cam of Ninja Storm, although the Super Sentai version combined with Cam's wardrobe made it an easy enough guess.
Mention must be made of Ziggy in RPM, as he starts out a Non-Action Guy and pretty much remains one throughout the season, even after he becomes Ranger Green. He's competent in a fight, but only competent, and still a bit of a coward.

Jasnah laments this fact in Rhythm of War. She's among the most talented and intelligent people in the setting, but has basically no actual combat experience. As the Queen of Alethkar she feels she should be on the front lines as would be expected of her, but her lack of training with Blade or Plate that Alethi noblemen have means she's not actually very good at it. While she's able to mostly keep up with the help of her surgebinding, a lack of experience means she simply isn't as effective a warrior as her uncle or cousins.

Rincewind is one main character in Discworld who prefers running away from... everything, really.
A more straight example is Nijel the Destroyer, son of Harebut the Provision Merchant. He wants to become a barbarian hero (by reading books), but has some... problems. He promptly falls in love with Conina, who's the daughter of Cohen the Barbarian and has inherited her mother's looks and her father's urge to kill. She really wants to become a hairdresser.
Moist von Lipwig is another protagonist example; he's not at all comfortable with fighting, preferring trickery and disguise instead. Vetinari notes that Moist is more uncomfortable with a sword in his hand than when having one pointed at him.

Torchwood:
Ianto Jones in has absolutely no desire to leave Mission Control and reckons the rest of the team are adrenaline junkies. But he gets action from the hero, if that counts...
Ianto seems to be getting in on the action (in multiple senses of the word) more in the second season. And by the third, he spends more time by Jack's side than anyone else. Although that doesn't end well.
Owen even mentions this at one point when he's sidelined, more or less implying that this is what Ianto actually wanted... Of course, this could just be Owen being Owen.

Imperium: As opposed to most other of the leading politicians of the late Roman Republic, Cicero is not a military man. He admits in Dictator that he is "too squeamish" to even watch others fight, much less fight himself. This sometimes makes him look bad and earns him a tongue-lashing from Quintus after Quintus, who unlike his brother fought at Pharsalus, learns that Cicero is giving up.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, the scholar Kraden is the fifth member of protagonist Felix's party for 99% of the game, yet never takes part in any of the fighting. Weirdly enough, appears to make him immune to monsters, since he's never actually endangered by the constant monster attacks. In the sequel Golden Sun: Dark Dawn he again takes on this role.
He also inexplicably never needs to pay to stay at an inn. Where exactly does he sleep, then...?

Ringo in With Strings Attached. Lacking any defensive or reliable movement magic, he has to be toted around and protected by the others. He's hardly useless, though, even if he does have a moment or two where he feels like The Load.
Actually, in a sense all four are Non-Action Guys, since they do not want to be involved in adventure and have zero interest in combat.
In The Keys Stand Alone: The Soft World, Ringo is never seen to do anything in the cities except cower next to John or be carried around by George, and hence is actually nicknamed “The Load” by some outworlders. (However, the Power Groups know better....)

Makai Kingdom: Lord Zetta is very much a non-combatant, since he is trapped in the form of a book and cannot even hold a weapon, and has to rely on his servants to fight for him. When Alex, God of Destruction, challenges him to a one-on-one fight, defeat seems inevitable... until Salome, Zetta's former apprentice and lover, swoops in and tears Alex a new one.

Tomb Raider: Legend has Alister and Zip, Lara's sidekicks. Lara does the tomb raiding while the other two stay behind at Lara's mansion and act as Mission Control. They do accompany Lara to England on one level, but they still stay behind in the van to give Lara advice as always. This bites them in the ass later on when the Big Bad sends his mercenaries after Lara and they capture Alister and Zip, forcing Lara to go save them. In Tomb Raider: Underworld, Lara's evil clone storms the mansion and, while destroying the mansion, kills Alister.

Acheron, the protagonist of Inverloch, has little ability or inclination to fight. This is unusual for da'kor, and it actually gets him into fairly serious trouble over the course of the story. He does lament his need to be protected by his more combat-ready friends after these incidents, but he's just not a fighting type.

Vorkosigan Saga:
With brittle bones and stunted growth due to a pre-natal poison attack on his parents, it is often pointed out to Miles Vorkosigan that his proper place is behind the action, giving directions to the more physically capable. This usually happens while Miles is in the hospital, recovering from injuries he sustained while being in the middle of the action. That makes Miles a subversion. Yes, he's short and frail (at least until all of his bones are replaced by prostheses). But that doesn't slow him down — and probably makes him more dangerous.
Commodore Baz Jesek, while Miles's nominal second-in-command for several books, starts the series as a deserter. Honour regained, he's never seen in a combat setting again, being more gifted at engineering and organising and supporting the more action-y types - such as his wife.

Most of the player characters in the Silent Hill series are not someone you expect to be able to kill gods with whatever weapons they find lying around, though as the plot progresses it's clear that the ordeal causes them to Take a Level in Badass. (How well the level takes depends on which of the Multiple Endings you get.) Notable exceptions to this are Travis, a trucker whose Dark and Troubled Past is fairly obvious even before The Reveal, and Alex, whose combat abilities are explained as having come back from the military ( though even THAT comes into question, and is somewhat foreshadowed throughout the plot).

It's the default in the world of A Brother's Price. Because men are so rare, they are kept sheltered and are almost universally more tenderhearted than the women who run the world. Jerin is seen as weird because unlike most he was taught to shoot and ride a horse, which serves him well when he is abducted, but he quickly falls off said horse into the protective arms of a much tougher love interest, and when he actually uses said gun it is textbook Bleed 'em and Weep.

At one point in Breath of Fire III, you have to train a bookworm named Beyd to become an Action Guy in order to get into a lighthouse. (He has authorization, but has to prove he's stronger than his romantic rival to justify going.) If trained properly, he wins his fight... and ends up so badly battered that he just gives you the go-ahead to enter while he recuperates. (On the plus side, he gets the girl.)

Zig-zagged with Bruce Banner from the Marvel Cinematic Universe much like the comic he doesn't have much real combat skill and Hulking Out is his trump card when things get dire. However, in his first movie Bruce has shades of Badass Normal being to escape from Ross's covert ops team and is pretty good at stealthing his way around. The Avengers (2012) plays it straighter as Bruce has more of a supporting role when he isn't a huge green rage monster, Avengers: Age of Ultron plays around with it as Bruce is able to overpower Scarlet Witch with a headlock and claims he could choke her out "without changing a shade", however Black Widow makes it clear they need the other guy in the climax. Thor: Ragnarok lampshades it as Bruce gets annoyed that Thor clearly prefers his stronger alter ego, however, Bruce finds himself flying an alien spaceship and getting involved in the action. Avengers: Infinity War initially plays straight as Bruce (unable to transform) is The Load to Tony and sorcerers, then it's subverted hard in battle of Wakanda where Bruce ironically pilots the Hulkbuster and takes down Obsidian Cull without turning into Hulk. Played mostly straight in Avengers: Endgame as even when combined with the Hulk, Bruce is a Gentle Giant and doesn't do any fighting until the end.

The Stormlight Archive:
The Alethi are a Proud Warrior Race who have devolved into Blood Knights, so almost all their highprinces are extremely talented frontline soldiers or at least generals. Highprince Sebarial is neither of these things. He's very much a merchant prince, making his money off the other highprinces going to war rather than going to war himself. He even happily pays the fees for not actively participating in the war, knowing that his investments in industry will more than make up for it. It's to the point that in the final battle of Words of Radiance, Dalinar orders him to stay out of everyone's way and give command to one of his mercenary generals, which Sebarial does gladly.
Shallan Davar is a scholar and thus isn't exactly prepared for physically fighting the coming Desolation. That said, she has a surprisingly high body count, achieved through surprise attacks and manipulating others into fighting for her.
Jasnah laments this fact in Rhythm of War. She's among the most talented and intelligent people in the setting, but has basically no actual combat experience. As the Queen of Alethkar she feels she should be on the front lines as would be expected of her, but her lack of training with Blade or Plate that Alethi noblemen have means she's not actually very good at it. While she's able to mostly keep up with the help of her surgebinding, a lack of experience means she simply isn't as effective a warrior as her uncle or cousins.

X-Men Film Series:
X-Men: The Last Stand: Pyro mocks Iceman for being this after the latter refuses to duel with him in a street full of people. ("Same old Bobby; always afraid of a fight.") Later on, Pyro learns the hard way that Iceman is actually more badass than he is.
X-Men: Days of Future Past: 1973 Charles invokes this trope to explain to Logan why he always tries to talk his way out of a problem (even if it results in ineffective rambling) instead using brute force. However, Xavier can still throw a mean punch if someone really pisses him off despite not being much of a fighter.
Deadpool (2016) and Deadpool 2: Weasel is a bartender who folds the moment he's in any real danger (he's honest about it, so none of his friends/allies hold it against him). Dopinder is a cab driver who wants to be a badass, but is definitely not there yet (though he does get to run over the evil headmaster in 2). There's also Peter from 2, a completely normal, slightly paunchy human with no combat experience or training who somehow manages to get accepted into X-Force, which is otherwise comprised of badass mutants. Somehow, he's the only member of the team other than the supernaturally lucky Domino to complete his airdrop without dying or getting hurt.

Rock of Black Lagoon is one of two Non Action Guys in the Lagoon Company (the other is Benny, the resident techie), but Rock has the distinction of being the Non Action Guy thrown right in the middle of most of the violence that Revy and Dutch get into. However, he also stands as a prime example that "non-action" does not automatically equate to "weak" — put a gun to his head, and he'll not only keep it but quite possibly throw it back in your face. This fearlessness, combined with his ability to network, have made him recognized as one of Roanapur's most dangerous figures, despite his never even touching a gun.

Declan, Beck's bush-pilot sidekick in The Rundown, eschews any direct involvement in the action, blaming a "dodgy knee" which presumably would inhibit his mobility in combat. Still, he is not without courage- unable to fight, he walks to the edge of Hatcher's compound playing the bagpipes, then delivers a crazy sermon warning Hatcher of the coming judgment... just before a herd of cattle stampede through the town.

In Endride, one of the first things we learn about Eljuia is that he has no fighting skills. His Warp Relic is a protective cloth barrier, so he can use it to prevent someone landing a blow, but almost always when there's a fight he's standing in the background carefully watching things unfold. Shun's first words to him lampshade his peaceful appearance.

Zootopia:
Despite being considerably larger than Judy and of a predator species, Nick is much less physical and leaves most of the fighting to her while relying on his wits. Justified in that Judy has received extensive physical training to become a cop while he has not. At least not until the ending.
Officer Clawhauser, who is a respected and well-liked employee for the ZPD, but does solely administrative support duties such as greeting and aiding visitors, dispatching backup, and delivering oral and written information. He happily aids the in-shape and tough field cops from the sidelines. It's a bit of a Genius Bonus, too; real-life cheetahs are actually remarkably weak and fragile animals, ill-suited to any kind of fight.

Most of the playable characters from Resident Evil: Outbreak are this, except David and Kevin. Jim Chapman is about as non-action as you can get: all his combat abilities and stats are low and his ability is to play dead. Ironically he's one of the best characters since his infection meter climbs so slowly and he, being a subway worker, can operate machinery and mechanisms no one else can.

Joker from Mass Effect. Not a playable character (bar a short sequence, mostly involving running/limping away, in the second game of the series) his brittle bone disease makes him worry about breaking bones whilst DANCING let alone fighting. Of course he can make the Normandy do things that no-one else thinks it should be able to do.
Then inverted in Mass Effect 2 during the final scenes, where he wields an assault rifle holding off Collectors so that Shepard can escape onto the Normandy.
Shepard got a lot of upgrades from Cerberus. It's never stated that Joker didn't get a few.
Your engineering crew also mostly stay out of frontline combat, except Tali.

Buwaro from Slightly Damned is the weakest in combat of the three main characters, having no combat experience at all at the start of the comic. Mostly all he can do is breath fire and run away. He is aware of this and wants to become stronger for his Action Girlfriend.

Luka from Bayonetta isn't very good at the whole "fighting" thing... he is good at escaping, though. Justified as while Bayonetta is a Person of Mass Destruction fighting Eldritch Abominations, Luka is just an amazingly lucky human whose only tool is some kind of grappling hook device.

The introductory text to Outlast explicitly tells you that the protagonist, Intrepid Reporter Miles Upshur, is not a fighter, and you'll be forced to use your wits and stealth to save your skin from the asylum's variants, who are very much equipped to get their hands dirty with your blood. The following two protagonists, Waylon Park of the Whistleblower DLC, and Blake Langermann of OutlastII, follow suit and are just as unable to intentionally injure any enemies who mean them harm.

Several in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, all of them useful or competent in other fields. Sai Argyle is leader of the Archangel's Bridge Bunnies and is far more valuable when it comes to running the ship than he ever would be in a fight. Patrick Zala and later Gilbert Durandal serve as ZAFT's leaders and as such don't have to get their hands dirty (although given Patrick's past as a general it's entirely possible that he'd do just fine in a fight; the key here is that we never see him actually in one). And Muruta Azrael and Lord Djibril? As the leaders of the anti-Coordinator terrorist group Blue Cosmos, they don't need to be fighters in order to be dangerous. Azrael in particular combines this trope with Smug Snake, Axe-Crazy, Bad Boss, and Nuke 'em.

Miller's Crossing: Tom Regan is a unique protagonist example. He hates getting his own hands dirty and is almost useless in a fight, spending almost the whole running time getting beat up. He more than makes up for it by always being the absolute smartest man in the room, and sometimes even incorporates getting his own ass kicked into his plans.

In Werewolf: The Apocalypse, the Corax (were-ravens) fit the bill. Their animal form is significantly weaker than every other shifter (except possibly the Ratkin), and they get the fewest bonuses (outside of dexterity, to aid dodging and running away) to their hybrid forms. While said hybrid forms are usually called "war forms" for every other member of the Fera, Corax call theirs rara avis because they try to avoid taking said form if at all possible. Corax ideally are infiltrators, spies, and other support roles for the more violence-capable Fera.

That said, he manages to fight off three farmers single-handed in a fist fight and displays impressively quick thinking during Thorfinn's knife-fight with a bear. And more impressive again trying to protect Thorfinn from Hild.

Gundam:
Dr. Farzenberg of After War Gundam X, which is justified by him being a doctor and thus an Actual Pacifist. He never picks up a weapon, though he does substantially assist an escape from the Federation.
Guin Sard Lineford of ∀ Gundam is the ruler of Inglessa and a competent strategist who is one of the most active forces in the show. But the only time he picks up a weapon himself is either to take it off someone else or to fake a Hostage Situation.

Shuichiro Oishi, the gentle Seigaku sub-captain from The Prince of Tennis. Putting other people's well-being before his own actually causes more than a bit of trouble, both physical (as he gets his arm injured right before the Hyotuei matches and such an injury has repercussions later) and mental (not only he has quite the breakdown in the Jyousei arc of the anime, but he later gives up his spot in the regulars to Tezuka (manga) or Echizen (anime), thinking he's a burden when he's not). This makes him look less skilled and strong than he really is, and as a result he's unfairly ignored in fandom and only featured in fanwork regarding his partner, Eiji Kikumaru even when Eiji has him in such high regards that, after he loses Oishi, he swears to not have any other doubles partner than him.

Animorphs:
Erek King is an ageless, nearly-indestructible android perfectly capable of being a One-Man Army but is bound by his programming which prevents him from harming other living things. This is probably for the best - the one time he does fight, it's so brutal it leaves the resident Blood Knight in tears.
It's probably a good thing that the narrator for that particular book was out cold during the battle, so whatever he did happened off-screen. Though others that have witnessed it made references to what happened, without going into any detail.

Allen Ridgeley from the Xenosaga games is a textbook example. Despite accompanying the hero party everywhere, he is only called upon to fight once as a guest party member during Episode 3 and is laughably bad; during the final climax, he managed to combine heroism with trope loyalty by pulling a Gandhi when confronted by the heroine's now-antagonistic ex-boyfriend, saving HER from More Than Mind Control, redeeming the ex-boyfriend, and then machine-gunning a Gnosis to death. He took a level in Bad-Ass, after being useless for three games!.

In Blade II, Blade's new sidekick Scud is a noncombatant. When confronted by Reapers, Scud retreats into his van and nearly has a heart attack. In contrast, Whistler ambushes a den of vampires with a Gatling gun in the first film and guns down a few SWAT guys in the third. Probably helps that he was Beneath Suspicion the entirely of the time, as Scud was The Mole and also claims he was a "lover, not a fighter." Blade figures it out by the end, however.

Rufus of The Dreamstone, eventually fell to this due to ensemble setup. Though originally a Badass Normal and the main protagonist, it soon became evident Rufus was outshone by nearly every other hero character, who was smarter, more experienced and/or granted with some far greater array of powers than him. As such he very quickly ended up tossed into this trope to let others shine, even becoming The Load for some time. He started to gain some credibility later on, if mostly by placing the others Out of Focus.

Sakai Yuji during the first season of Shakugan no Shana, who still managed to find use as a sort of on-site Mission Control and by being an intentional source of Heroic Resolve for the titular Tsundere heroine.
He gets increasingly more action-oriented during the second season, culminating in episode 19, when he single-handedly destroys a (albeit somewhat pathetic) Guze no Tomogarra with five bodies by flambéing three of them, snapping one's neck, and impaling the last on his BFS, and becoming a nice asset to the team until he falls to The Dark Side and becomes the Big Bad in season three.

Marcellus Ardsen of Soul Eater: Troubled Souls is one of the very few people (guy or girl) who can't fight in the setting. He has no combat ability. He makes up for it by being the smart one between him and Tsuji and being a good Demon Weapon.

Wonder Woman: Apollo, at least prior to the New 52, will show support for most of Artemis's plays but he stays out of the action himself, preferring to act as an observer and messenger. He also has a habit of trying to avoid conflict altogether, at one point in Volume 2 going so far as to give up and accept death in the face of the challenge presented by the New Gods and choose to be put into an enchanted sleep to wait for death, infuriating Artemis.

In One Piece, Usopp is generally a coward that runs from all signs of danger, and he's a lot weaker then everyone in the main cast (he is quite durable...but his crewmates are even moreso). The few times he gets a serious fight, he usually wins by nifty use of a wide array of gadgets. Eventually, he becomes quite a bit stronger and less of a coward, but he still relies on his tricks and gadgets.

Takuya "Moro" Morooka from Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! is a computer nerd who is physically weak and untrained in combat. Compared to the rest of his friend group which consists of five obscenely powerful girls, a bodybuilder who can obliterate walls in a single punch, a guy who is both lucky and talented enough to succeed at everything he tries and an Action Survivor who wins most fights through clever tactics, he comes off as pretty unimpressive. This gets brought up several times, frequently by Moro himself, who feels inadequate when with the others.

Jonathan Creek:
The title character himself. If there are buildings to be broken into or criminals to be confronted, expect Maddie/Carla/Joey to do it. Jonathan hangs back, watching what's going on and deducing the truth from what happens.
Except that one time where Jonathan disarmed a gun-wielding multiple murderer by throwing, of all things, a playing card at his hand.

Code Geass:
Lelouch Lamperouge is an odd case: He's a Magnificent Bastard and genius Chess Master, but so horribly unfit he has been easily outrun by girls wearing mascot costumes, fancy dresses with petticoats and high heels. He's routinely curbstombed in mecha battle. It's even lampshaded symbolically with the show's chess theme, where Lelouch plays the part of the king, simultaneously the most important piece and the slowest moving. Yet despite all this, he's anything but cowardly or harmless: On his own, he has managed to easily infiltrate and take control of several aerial battleships, and from the very first episode he killed large groups of hostile soldiers with ease. Even without his Geass he is shown to be very competent with a gun and can score headshots if his targets aren't endowed with Charles Atlas Superpower, and in the second episode he doesn't even flinch when Villetta is firing her knightmare-mounted machine gun at him. Essentially, half-Non Action Guy, half-badass.
Rivalz Cardemonde also counts, as he's present in all the Ashford scenes, but never does anything action-related - a genuine Ordinary High-School Student.

The only male character of note among Touhou Project's Improbably Female Cast is Rinnosuke Morichika, the owner of a curio shop. He's a total wimp, has a non-combat powernote the ability to know the True Name and purpose of any object just by looking at it, and like the trope's description says he's mostly used for comic relief in the form of thinking he's far smarter than he actually is.

Thomas of Suikoden III has the same Star as the previous two names' badass heroes, but if you're expecting Kung-Fu Badass... you're sorely mistaken. He's rather meek in personality and is quite terrible in combat. Fitting since he's not a fighter, but a businessman. However, he makes up for it for being The Determinator. If you bother to level him up to be on par with the other main characters, he can be competent in a fight, but most players don't bother since he starts all the way down at level 1 and even when built up he'll still only be an average fighter. ...Until you realize he has a ton of skill slots and -- when built right -- can become pretty nasty in his own right.

Rick MacFarlane of Terra is a flight engineer who only joined the military to feed his family. After he and Alex are shot down he pulls a gun on the guy who finds him, Resistance agent Grey O'Shea. Grey is a former infantryman and it's clear to him that Rick has never actually had to use a weapon in combat before, so he disarms him with little effort then gives the gun back to show he's not an enemy.

Tsukune from Rosario + Vampire was initially the weakest student at Youkai Academy, due to being human. He was heavily reliant on Inner Moka's strength, as well as that of his other friends. About halfway through the first season, he gained the power to fight on his own, but he doesn't become a full-time combatant until the second season. In the anime, none of that happens, so he remains the Non-Action Guy in both seasons.

John says, "To say that anyone can succeed on Daily Fantasy is like saying that I could be the next James Bond. Sure, it's a mathematical possibility, but it's a longshot!" And on the left side of the screen is a parody of the Quantum of Solace poster, with the title "Aversion to Violence" ("007" being spelled out in the O's of the words "to" and "Violence"), and John standing with his palm up toward the burning hotel and an expression on his face that says, "No, thank you."

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
Robert E. O. Speedwagon has exactly one fight against Jonathan before he becomes outclassed by pretty much everyone, and from that point on he joins Jonathan to hunt down Dio as simply a tagalong character providing the occasional act of support (like helping to thaw out Zeppeli's frozen arm). However, he does eventually go on to create the Speedwagon Foundation, an organization that supports the Joestar family through several other Parts.
Due to being a child on top of having a non-combat based Stand, Boingo from Stardust Crusaders prefers hang out on the sidelines while his brother, Oingo, and later Hol Horse do all the heavy lifting.
Vento Aureo:
Despite being the most obviously muscular of Team Bucciarati, Leone Abbacchio is the only member of the group that has a Stand not designed for combat. Though that doesn't stop him from beating the crap out of Illuso with his bare hands.
Melone, whose Stand, Baby Face, allows him to observe the fight from a distance while the homunculus created from the Stand does all the fighting.

Henpecked Hou from Jade Empire was once a competent and respected Drunken Master... until he got tricked into marrying a woman who disapproved of drinking and fighting, and could back up her words. If you have him accompany you, he won't fight enemies, but instead throws wine bottles that allow you to use Drunken Fighting style. On the other hand, he has enough courage to follow you into any sort of danger... as long as you're there to protect him.

Game of Thrones:
Davos claims to be a poor fighter which is probably true as he lacks four fingers on his right hand and never had any highborn training. His mind and no-nonsense attitude are better than any sword he could use.
Jojen Reed is perfectly comfortable admitting his sister is the better fighter.
Varys, which is lampshaded when Ned asks why he did nothing to help, and he says that he can't do much against multiple armed soldiers.
Renly is the only Baratheon brother who is not a warrior. Both Robert and Stannis have a low opinion of Renly because of this.

Tedd of El Goonish Shive is like this. He acts as Mission Control in the only combat arc he is involved in, and he can be rather cowardly at times. Then again, he is a scientist-type character surrounded by shapeshifters and supernatural martial artists, so it is to be expected.

Abe Sapien is mostly the geeky backup to the burly Hellboy in the first movie. When he faces Mr. Wink in The Golden Army, he proves to be quite acrobatic, but still barely escapes with his life until Hellboy shows up to save the day.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: While he does have his moments, Spike almost never fights, is rarely actively involved in fixing problems the protagonists have and usually contributes to the group through managing small-scale tasks for them and doing their menial work, fitting this trope quite readily. Though let it be known that when he has his moments, he really has his moments.

Doctor Who:
In the first season of the new show, Mickey Smith is explicitly set up as The Guy Who Doesn't Have What It Takes, in contrast to Action Girl Rose Tyler. In the second season, to justify his continued inclusion in events, it turns out that he does Have What It Takes after all.
The Doctor himself qualifies for the trope as well, as with the exception of his third and sixth incarnations he runs away from the Monster of the Week as often as he runs toward it.
Not entirely true. The original series Doctors were all shown to be skilled hand to hand fighters who enjoyed a good scrape from time to time, bar the Second. Even the First Doctor regularly used Cane Fu on his enemies, held his in own in a sword fight, and beat up an armed Roman assassin. The 4th Doctor meanwhile also fought just as often as the Third Doctor. It was only in the 21st-century revival that all of the Doctors (save the 12th, fleetingly) were made into non-action heroes. Watching your whole race die in a horrible war can do that to you.
Original series companion Harry Sullivan was conceived as an Action Guy in case an actor too old to handle action was cast as the Fourth Doctor. But when they cast Tom Baker as the Fourth, Harry immediately became this instead and was quietly dropped in Baker's second season.
Rory Williams was very much this before he became The Last Centurion. He would much rather become a small town doctor than fighting aliens.

Cacofonix the bard and Getafix the druid in Asterix. The entire rest of the male half of the village just loves beating up Romans, but they both only engage in fights on special days (like the anniversary of the battle of Gergovia), or when personal honour is at stake - for example, in The Mansions of The Gods, when Cacofonix gets kicked out of his Roman-built flat and the Gauls declare war on them on his behalf, he takes pride of place on the front line, and if someone insults his music in the critical moment just before a punchup starts, he'll join in. This does make sense, as both of them have important political roles in the village, with Getafix the druid in particular being the only thing keeping them from Roman domination, and they are too precious to risk (well, Getafix is). Both tend to take Distressed Dude roles as a result.
Their non-action-ness leads to a funny moment in The Roman Agent. The greatest battle the village ever had is in full swing, with labels and a key so we can keep track of how everyone is fighting. One of the labels is in the middle of the village far away from the action, pointing out Cacofonix, asking Getafix if he has any idea what's going on.

In Child of the Storm post chapter 60 Harry correctly guesses that Ron and Hermione, for all their courage, more usually fall under this category and goes out of his way to avoid involving them in his usual chaotic hijinks. Jane Foster is also this trope-though just because she doesn't fight does not make her helpless or useless.

Monster's Johan Liebert has three ways to kill people: shoot, poison, and drive them to suicide. Though this is probably less "useless in a fight" than "so terrifyingly good at manipulating people that he doesn't need to fight."

Criminal Minds:
Dr. Spencer Reid. He's the only member who failed all physical FBI physical exams, but because he's a genius with 4 PhDs, Photographic Memory, and reads 20 000 words a minute. There's a reason that any time a character is kidnapped or in danger its Reid, the writers even named those kind of episodes as "Reid In Peril" episodes.
In the season 2 episode Revelations he manages to kill Tobias Hankel after being drugged repeatedly, tortured for two days, being forced to dig his own grave, and actually dying.

Marcus of The Arts of Dark and Light more or less plays this role in Summa Elvetica, where he is much less impressive than Caitlys, the Action Girl who saves him from the villains. Generally speaking, he doesn't like fighting, being more of a peaceful man by temperament. However, he becomes more formidable in A Throne of Bones, where he serves on active duty as an officer and deals more proactively with the dangers he faces.

The Hunger Games: Peeta Mellark is the series Guile Hero and plays Non-Action Guy to his Action Girl love interest. This is especially prominent when he's compared with her other love interest. He is mentioned being good with a knife and a wrestler, but it's more of an Informed Attribute since we never actually see him fight and all his badass moments involve playing the crowd. This actually turns out to be a good thing as while Katniss has the skills to survive in the arena, it's only through his charisma that they're able to manipulate the audience and so stay alive. Ironically if she'd been in there with her other love interest they probably would have died.

Deadpool (2016) and Deadpool 2: Weasel is a bartender who folds the moment he's in any real danger (he's honest about it, so none of his friends/allies hold it against him). Dopinder is a cab driver who wants to be a badass, but is definitely not there yet (though he does get to run over the evil headmaster in 2). There's also Peter from 2, a completely normal, slightly paunchy human with no combat experience or training who somehow manages to get accepted into X-Force, which is otherwise comprised of badass mutants. Somehow, he's the only member of the team other than the supernaturally lucky Domino to complete his airdrop without dying or getting hurt.

Chiba Mamoru/Tuxedo Kamen from Sailor Moon is totally this in the anime. He says a few words to bolster Sailor Moon's spirits, throws a rose, and wanders off. He has to be saved from death/possession (season one), brainwashing/his own stupidity (season two), villain-induced illness (season four), and death (season five), not to mention many smaller instances. Except for providing The Power of Love a few times and a pivotal future cast member, he's kind of useless in battle. Possibly a case of Can't Catch Up, since the Sailors get regular upgrades while he... uh, doesn't. In the manga he had an actual attack and awesome mind powers — including healing, a psychic connection to his loved ones, and the ability to feel the earth's pain — and beat up bad guys more often. He was much more badass as a villain, as well. Still a prime target for the Worf Effect, though...

Roman Bellic from Grand Theft Auto IV is the protagonist's overweight, optimistic and somewhat cowardly cousin. Niko kills people for a living, Roman runs a cab depot. He puts up with an incredible amount of abuse through the game, being beaten up, having his home and business burned down, shot, kidnapped, stuffed into a trunk, and more, mostly as mission fodder for the player. At the end of the game he may or may not be killed at his wedding. Still, he takes it with reasonable good cheer, and having his cousin around does make him rich.
Gay Tony in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony rarely does any damage, preferring to let Luis do his work.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Xander. He gained in combat ability throughout the series, but was still a second-line fighter at best by the end, taking on the Mission Control role in the "Season 8" comics. Even so, he's another example where lack of combat ability is compensated by extreme testicular fortitude; his more powerful friends often worry about his near-suicidal charges against superpowered opponents.

Stargate Atlantis:
Most of the male scientists qualify. Of the three main male science-oriented characters — Carson, Zalenka, and McKay — McKay is the only one who regularly has to go off base, and he is all but worthless in a fight. (A good example is the time he has to be explicitly instructed to open fire on an advancing Wraith, and then again to reload once he's run out of bullets!) Of course, as many missions involve the rest of the team protecting him while he performs some variety of technobabble, so he is far from useless. Carson and Zalenka are even less action-oriented due to how rarely they leave Atlantis. (Though Carson's ATA gene allows him to cause quite a bit of damage with drones, he is very nervous at the idea of using them and has a VERY difficult time controlling them. It doesn't help that, as a doctor and a truly gentle man, he is about as much of a pacifist as he could be without packing his bags in protest.)
While Zelenka doesn't see much action and clearly dislikes it, his age and nationality suggest that he probably has some background in the military. For all that most people probably wouldn't look to him in a fight, he drops a marine in "Tabula Rasa" and manages to avoid many more of them for most of the episode when forced to fall back on instinct.

Tomb Raider brings us Endurance's technician Alex Weiss who has a Amazon Chaser crush on Lara and gets himself killed getting the tools to fix the getaway ship to "impress" Lara in some stupid way. Actually subverted, if you pay attention to the cutscenes, Alex is actually pretty skilled with guns and fights off dozens of cultists, and even goes Guns Akimbo before he dies. The simple fact is Alex isn't Lara and he really shouldn't have endangered himself pointlessly trying to impress her when she cared enough about him already, in the tie-in comics Lara still has dreams about Alex and actually does treats his death like a Heroic Sacrifice.

Robert Ripley in The Riddle of Master Lu is a typical Adventure Game Player Character — relying on his wits, not strength or physical skill. His girlfriend Mei Chen is the one who knows how to fight. There's a scene in which she starts having a go at it with a large, skilled thug, who simply smacks Ripley aside when he tries to intervene, leaving him to figure out a way to help Mei indirectly.

Patrick Jane of The Mentalist is a decidedly non-action guy whose skills lie in detective work and psychological profiling rather than any form of physical prowess. He has no apparent combat skills and if he finds himself in a dangerous situation, his tactic is to try to talk his way out or confuse his opponent until help arrives rather than fighting them.

Foaly in the Artemis Fowl series.
Artemis is far better suited to orchestrating everything from behind Butler and letting his more athletic companions do the dirty work, but as often as not circumstance forces him to at least try to do something physical anyway. It seems like he resolves anew to start getting fit at least once a book, but it never quite happens.
This is subverted by Artemis's Split Personality Orion whose shooting skills (something that Artemis doesn't have) disabled a controlled Holly.

Even when he finally gets to fight in RE:Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, he doesn't do much (He can't attack unless he absorbs Riku's power in the former game, and in the latter his only move is to trap Sora, Donald, and Goofy into his Book dimension, from which he can attack them completely indirectly.)
Demyx from the same Organization in the same series likes to pass himself off as one of these, running away from enemies, claiming he really doesn't know how to fight very well, and using a sitar as a weapon. He's lying. Big time. In 358/2 Days, Demyx's claims tend more towards laziness than incapability, probably because he's more likely to stay not-Duskified if he keeps them thinking that he IS good for something, and it's just a matter of getting him to do it. He's also apparently the greatest scout in the organization.
DiZ (a.k.a. Ansem the Wise) is similar to the aforementioned Zexion. He only seems to use his power of Darkness for non-combat purposes (e.g., Thinking Up Portals), and even the lowest-level enemies seem able to kick his ass. That said, if you fight him in his digital Twilight Town, you're screwed.

Jérémie Belpois of Code Lyoko, who operates Mission Control while the others fight all the battles. Yet he is also the team leader since when your enemy is an evil computer A.I., the most crucial member of your team is the computer genius. Jérémie has gone to Lyoko a few times though, often for various reasons, such as to make sure the return to the past doesn't wipe his memory and to build up a natural resistance to XANA's Demonic Possession specters. We don't actually get to see his Lyoko avatar or him battling at any point in the series but, given the reactions of the other warriors, it was fairly humorous to watch him in "action".

In Octopath Traveler, Ali turns out to be this, despite his claims to the contrary. He tries to bluff Omar, Morlock's hired bodyguard, by claiming that he's a One-Man Army, but gets taken down almost immediately, and is forced to admit that he'd been bluffing. It thus falls on Tressa and her companions to save him and defeat Omar.

Knox, from Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is a ghoul, and very, very aware that he cannot reasonably be expected to survive a fight against a vampire. Which is why he cons you into doing it for him.

In Lilo & Stitch, in all its incarnations so far, Pleakley is a Non-Action Guy whenever the action shows up.

The Witcher: Dandelion is no coward, more than willing to stick his neck out for his friends, well-connected and usually a font of useful information. However, he is very much a Spoony Bard and not much of a fighter compared to most mundane enemies he makes (let alone the things professional monster hunter Geralt deals with on a daily basis).

Back in the mid-'90s, Triple H Hunter Hearst Helmsley was perfectly happy to hide behind his female bodybuilder bodyguard Chyna. Although he wasn't purely non-action, back then he did completely rely on her.

Every single Hobbit almost without exceptions. Of course, Hobbits have Hidden Depths and the book can be mildly Anvilicious about that sort of thing, though fortunately, the author's skill keeps it in control.

Revolution:
In "Soul Train", Ken 'Hutch' Hutchinson. According to him, this was what he was before his Action Girl wife died. Of course, when push came to shove, he stabbed Nora Clayton in the gut when she tried to stop him from bombing a train.
Aaron Pittman. His non-action status is justified because he is a former Google CEO who is overweight and serves as the comic relief of the show. However, he does become more badass, like when he pretended to have killed himself and then shot dead the drug lord Drexel in "Sex and Drugs", as well as defending kids from the Monroe militia in "The Children's Crusade".

Kyon in Haruhi Suzumiya (who is also the Unfazed Everyman), at least when compared to Koizumi and especially Yuki. This is justified by his being the only member of the Brigade without any sort of supernatural ability (Wild Mass Guessing aside). Interestingly, in spite of this, he's still able to get his stuff done, even if it takes him three tries to clear a level.
