Statistical Champion (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Be it a basic character or a DM's Mary Sue, the Statistical Champion sacrifices class features for saves, BAB, hit die, and the like. It is very easy to make characters with this class.

Races: Any race can be a statistical champion.
Alignment: Any alignment can be a statistical champion.
Starting Gold: As fighter.
Starting Age: As fighter.

Class Skills (8 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
A Statistical Champion loses the ability to continue leveling in this class if she ever multiclasses into something else. All of the following are class features of the Statistical Champion.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Statistical Champion is proficient in all armors, as well as shields. They are also proficient in any 5 weapons.
Any Statistical Champion that receives an aid from another willingly loses her BAB and Save bonus for the next week. Other than that, there is no real way for a Statistical Champion to loose his abilities permanently.
Playing a Statistical Champion
Religion: A Statistical Champion is not a social category as much as it is simply a bunch of abilities. Regarded as such, it does not have any singular deity or pantheon of deities.
Other Classes: Statistical Champions stand well in the place of any thief, warrior, craftsman, or face character. She might even stand in as all of them at the same time.
Combat: Go friggin nuts. The Statistical Champion has little more than the 'I hit it with my sword' command.
Advancement: As an optional rule, the Statistical Champion can gain XP by failing checks and saves. XP cannot be gained after 'taking 10' or purposefully failing a save. Since the Statistical Champion is not the most skilled in combat, killing monsters wouldn't be the smartest option for a PC.
Statistical Champions in the World

|—Thrane Jopin, a Human Statistical Champion|
Statistical Champions can act as many different NPCs in the world. Even the leader of a thieve's guild could be a Statistical Champion, for the purpose of a better Fortitude, Will, and BAB.
Daily Life: A Statistical Champion starts the day practicing his skills, usually spending about an hour a day to keep his skills sharp. Keep in mind that this is fluff, and Statistical Champions do not actually require one hour of practice per day.
NPC Reactions: Most NPCs consider Statistical Champions as fellow NPCs, except with more effectiveness. This can lead to slight respect or somewhat intolerance.
