* 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.

* The ''Galaxy Crusher'' in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is a star-sized Demon superweapon capable of erasing an entire ''galaxy'' with a single shot and has the defensive firepower of over half the entire Demon Imperial Navy. However, [[RealityEnsues the sheer collateral damage it causes and its mind-boggling logistic requirements]] (and the threat of it being turned against its creators) led Maledict to deactivate it after it was only used once. The entire Demon military itself can also pretty much described as AwesomeButImpractical, focusing on enormously large and powerful battle machines that are expensive to operate and replace.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Soundbite quickly realizes that [[spoiler:with his new transceiver, he can call every Transponder Snail in the world or none of them, no in-between]].
** Somewhat averted in the latest chapters when he realizes that he can both call people like a regular transponder snail, and also that he can create a 'dead zone' the size of say [[spoiler:Enies Lobby]] where they are unable to receive [[spoiler:the SBS broadcast]] and thus unable to preempt the attack.
