They do survive amazing dangers, indeed, but don't do it by their own abilities. They never fight brillantly or elaborate any amazing battleplan, for instance... Most often, they are just lucky, someone help them at the last moment, and so on... Brief, their success is more due to the scenario rather than to their capabilities.

In GURPS terms, they would probably have Luck and their players would spend a lot of CP to assure successful actions or plot twists.
