** A spell Harry develops called the "Crown of Glory" causes him and his girls (Tonks, Fleur, and Luna) to temporarily gain an aura of power and righteousness that basically magnifies anything someone else finds impressive about them while diminishing anything they dislike. Unfortunately, said spell massively inflate their ego as well, meaning the other three are required to keep each one in check and after even a couple hours of use results in each of them having to go their separate ways afterwards to blow off steam lest they kill and/or rape each other[[note]]Harry and Fleur begin plotting sexually dominating the other three while Tonks would kill them for even trying or for insulting her[[/note]]. Harry and Fleur each find someone to sexually dominate for several hours while Tonks absolutely destroys a punching bag with her bare hands before going flying to blow off steam. Luna, as the least affected, simply goes for a long walk in the woods. Regardless, while it's a powerful tool to control others, the drawbacks are far too great for anything but sporadic short-term usage.

* In ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'', Bear's knife gloves are terrifying, but practically useless in a real fight, since he can barely parry with them. He mostly uses them to intimidate, or when he gets into a brawl, but the moment he meets a real opponent, he has to waste precious time with drawing his sword.
** Sasha is fighting with a dothraki arakh. While the weapon itself is certainly awesome ''and'' practical on top when in Essos, it loses a lot of the latter attribute in Westeros, where more heavy armour is common. [[SubvertedTrope It still gives her an advantage against enemies who wear only light armour though]].
** The Targaryen dragons, of all things, while very much essential for the war, can get into situations in which they are very impractical, namely in a battle. Their main weapon, breathing fire on their opponents, is kind of hard to use without causing massive casualties to their own troops, through literal FriendlyFire.

* Multiple cards and/or decks in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290211/22/Jaden-s-Harem-Return-of-the-Supreme-King Jaden's Harem: Return of the Supreme King]]'' are shown to be nearly useless compared to more basic cards and well-rounded decks. Dimitri manages to summon Black Luster Solder - Envoy Of The Beginning during his duel with Jaden and immediately loses it due to a trap card returning it to his hand. Zana's deck is built entirely around summoning Cyber End Dragon with Power Bond so when Power Bond is removed from play early in a duel, her deck is crippled.

* A notorious fanmade ''Franchise/StarWars'' ship design was that of a Star Destroyer-type ship that was [[UnnecessarilyLargeVessel 260 kilometers in length]]. (For comparison, this would make it a little bit smaller than Switzerland.) [[http://i.imgur.com/e2qDGVs.png A response to it]] was the commander of the ship reporting on its maiden flight, and apologetically explaining all the incidents that resulted from the ship's size (cases of vertigo from looking out the three-kilometer bridge window, its six-million man crew causing massive outbreaks of dysentery and warring with one another, a case where the ship, while taking two hours to turn around, accidentally bumped into a nearby fleet and annihilated it in the process).

* The Unforgivables are seen this way by Harry's group in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/41/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'' given that while they can't be magically blocked, they're all single target only so they lose their power upon hitting anything (such as a butterfly in the cloud of them conjured to block spells). Compounding the matter is the fact that two of them (Imperius and Cruciatus) require the caster maintain the spell and the third has an unnecessarily long incantation.

** Lelouch views the Knightmare lances this way. While they ''can'' inflict a great deal of damage, they also require you charge straight at your opponent; otherwise they're just less efficient tonfas.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/3/The-Black-Emperor The Black Emperor]]'', Lelouch and Milly designed several prototype Knightmare Frames but had to can each of them for various reasons. One designed for long range artillery support was too heavy to move faster than a crawl; another that [[TranformingMecha changed into a plane]] was exceedingly fragile and couldn't fly for long due to fuel constraints.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9443327/1/A-Third-Path-to-the-Future A Third Path to the Future]]'' despite her desire to install such devices in every room, [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution Jean Grey]] quickly realizes she'll have to only install hard light projectors in a few important locations in her universe's equivalent of Hogwarts. While Literature/HarryPotter got the land for free, hard light projectors require technology so prohibitively expensive that six of them drained nearly the entirety of his vast fortune. If not for Death rewarding him with the fortune of an immortal he'd killed, Harry would've gone broke very quickly.
