Ordinary High-School Student
Rip Van Winkle was this as a human. She gives an air of it, before being violent, now.

Highschool of the Dead doesn't reveal Saya wears glasses until the second chapter, where she finally removes her contact lenses. Though the manga wastes no time establishing her as the smartest student at Fujimi High, by showing her analytical and decision making ability, which is how she and Hirano survived long enough for Takashi and the others to find them.
Panders to the fans of this trope with the petite Sona Sitri and her lovely Queen piece Tsubaki Shinra. Shizuku has the look down. The "sweet" aspect is diminished somewhat by the fact that she's a remorseless murderer. Matsuri is kind and studious, if easily fooled. She's a cute kid with or without glasses, but as she's Blind Without 'Emand kind of clumsy at the best of times Toujou Aya is no less of a cutie with her glasses in place.

SH's first novel, it is revealed that Mikado and Anri have officially began dating. Conflict Edit In the light novels, the reason Anri tries to avoid a romantic relationship with Mikado or with anyone for that matter is because of Saika.
The way she explains this is that, Saika fills its host with an uncontrollable feeling of love that manifests as a desire to cut people since, as a sword, that's all Saika knows how to express anything. Since Anri locked away all her emotions after her parents died specifically loveSaika merely balances out the emotions she has locked away which is how she is able to keep the spirit of the sword from going berserk.
Anri is afraid that if she allows herself to fall in love with Mikado, it will give Saika enough power to take full control and cause her to hurt him. This fear appears to be well founded as Anri seems to have more and more trouble keeping Saika in check as the novels progress. Or they are a Cosmic Plaything who frequently find themselves in the unenviable position of having to Save the World without any special powers. Sometimes they're actually gods.
And sometimes they are truly average joes who simply lead truly ordinary lives. Protagonists based on this trope are typically invoked to provide an Audience Surrogate. Considering the demographic works with these protagonists are generally aimed at, the Ordinary High School Student is someone every young person can easily relate to and place themselves into.
By extension, such a character also appeals to older viewers for a similar reason. Look for the kid in the fully open button shirt over a T-shirt, jeans and Converse sneakers. See Farm Boy for their rural counterpart.
Mikado and Anri | Durarara!! Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Many, MANY animes live off this trope. Anime and Manga Keiichi in Ah! My Goddess although he's more an ordinary college freshman. Mikan Sakura from Alice Academy who suddenly discovers she has a special ability called an alice and is admitted to the Alice Academy. Though she is younger than a high-school student at the time. Toki from Amatsuki wouldn't even have become the hero if his school hadn't sent him to the museum for failing history class.
Mikado and Anri
And just when he finally gets a fresh new start in life after being dragged into the past against his will, he's given phenomenal cosmic powers that ruin his life! His friend and fellow victim Kon could also qualify, however, there's evidence to suggest he's not all he seems. Koyomi Mizuhara Yomi from Azumanga Daioh is a subversion in the sense that, not only is she really and truly normal even—especially—compared to her friendsshe actually gets to stay that way.

A Certain Magical Index: Touma's passive negation power certainly makes him look like an ordinary student compared to people like his lightning-wielding Unknown Rival Mikoto under most circumstances.
In their first onscreen confrontation, Touma protests to a sparking Mikoto that he's "just a Level 0" esper. Mikoto makes a compelling rebuttal in the form of a giant blast of ineffectual electricity. He's "Level 0" only because his power is impossible to quantify. If you're looking for the truly normal students, there are Saten Ruiko, Hamazura Shiage and Wataru Kurozuma, who do not have the benefit of anti-magic or anything of the like, they really have no abilities.
The latter two are Badass Normalbut even normals can outdo espers and mages where it counts. Though even a Level 0 is technically an esper, emitting their own AIM fields and as well as experiencing harmful backlash if they attempt to use magic. Its just that their ability to bend reality is so insignificant its practically nonexistent. The only people that could be truly called ordinary are those who have not gone through the power curriculum program.
Taken to extremes in Code Geass. Lelouch is an ordinary high school student Kallen and Suzaku are inversions, being ace mecha pilots with inexplicably superhuman physical abilities, especially Suzaku for their respective sides who in the first few episodes come back to high school. This can also be said of fellow student Nina, who starts the series as an above-intelligent but otherwise normal student and ends up a Psycho Lesbian Gadgeteer Genius.
Shirley and Milly are also fairly normal, but start to really get wrapped up in events later in the series A hilarious aversion in Daily Lives of High School Boyswhere all the characters are indeed entirely ordinary highschool students. Light Yagami from Death Note is a perfect example of this trope, until it's derailed by the fact that he's both incredibly smart and megomaniacally insane.
Though all indications are that said insanity would never have manifested had not been granted the ability to kill anyone just by writing down their name; during a Memory Gambit he's legitimately horrified by the notion that he could be the infamous serial killer Kira. The heroes of Dreamland are all this in real life and have special powers in their dreams. You can't be more ordinary than that. Mikado, Masaomi, and Anri in Durarara!! A good quarter of the cast in El-Hazard: The Magnificent World the ordinary Earthlings who develop extraordinary abilities.
Fujisawa an ordinary high school teahcer. Katsuhiko Jinnai, on the other hand, was hardly "normal" when he was a high school student, given his tendency to start ranting upon any slight to him or breaking out into crazed, maniacal laughter.
Asanaga Shun is a completely normal high school student in Endridebut his Genki Guy nature sure helps when he gets Trapped in Another World where suddenly he has a magical sword and is on the run with a prince. He remains very ordinary regardless. Sure, he's the adopted son of a magus and unknowingly possesses his own magic circuits, but his own magic isn't useful for anything other than fixing radios. Until such time as it makes him a candidate to summon Saber Kaname Chidori in Full Metal Panic!
At least that's what she thought until it turned out that he's actually a mercenary working for an anti-terrorist organisation.
His age made him a perfect candidate for being a bodyguard, even though he had no idea how an ordinary student behaves at all.
Kei Kurono and Masaru Katou and, in fact, all high school-aged characters in Gantz are bona fide Ordinary High School Students until they get hit by a train and resurrected to play the Gantz Game. They're still technically Ordinary High School Students after that, they just have super-powered combat suits and deadly weapons—and Kei is extremely good at using them. Yasuhara of Ghost Hunt puts an unusual twist on this trope. He was a relatively normal high-school student until the rest of the main characters showed up and kind of absorbed him into their group.
Out of the eight main characters, Yasuhara is one of only two characters who has no powers at all though the other "normal" character is actually just hiding his identity and amazing powers, though we don't find that out until the last episode. The series does not focus on him.
In fact, he doesn't even show up until halfway through the series. He's there more to do the off-screen research for the group, which means that the assholish-yet-somehow-charming character who had been doing the research previously now gets more screentime. Turns out she has quite a few. Mahiro Yasaka from Haiyore!
Nyarko-san is one of these who just happens to be in a Love Dodecahedronand lives with, a group of literal Lovecraftian horrorswithout somehow going permanently insane. It's revealed early on that his mother is a part-time Evil God Slayer, and he inherited her skill with forks. The novels take it a step further, revealing that Mahiro can perceive and resist distortions in space-time, an extremely rare ability. Kyon from Haruhi Suzumiya is certified as ordinary by Itsuki. If it weren't for Haruhi's liking him, he wouldn't be worth looking at twice.
Some fans have different theoriesand there is some support for them in the novels. Ordinary or not, he has leashes on two of the most powerful beings in the area who can destroy the universe at will, one with merely a subconscious whim—or, rather, holds the keys to the molly guard over the nuke button, as it were. And the third girl trusts him to keep her secret from herself. Hayate and Ayumu started off as this in Hayate the Combat Butlerthe rest of the cast being between Child Prodigy and Teen Geniusand a few Ojou just to top off the cake.
Tomoki Sakurai from Heaven's Lost Property. He is just a completely normal high-school student who loves his ordinary life, but one day he becomes the master of an Angeloid who fell from the sky and his normal life seems to come to an end.
Takashi bashes his head in with a baseball bat. Natsuki in the manga Houkago X Ponytail seems pretty normal, but she's a hardcore Shoujo-manga otakuand got black belt in both karate and taekwondo. Takumi from Initial D delivers tofu in an old beater; and in the process, has learned drifting techniques that racers take years to master.
Kagome Higurashi in InuYasha. In fact, this trend was specifically mentioned in the Anime. Like Sailor Moon 's Usagi, her gifts are related to a jewel or crystal, she's the reincanation of the powerful miko Kikyou, keeper of the Shikon Jewel, and her greatest strengths personality-wise are her kindness, love for others, and ability to make friends.
This can bite her in the butt with such characters as Kouga the wolf prince who just doesn't take the hint, and Hojo, who like-wise can't take a hint.
