** And then there's Area Search, a utility spell Nanoha created way back in the third episode of the first season to solve a specific problem and has never had the chance to use again...until the last episodes of the third season, which gave the hidden Quattro a very nasty surprise.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', King Kai teaches Goku the [[CombinedEnergyAttack Spirit Bomb]], and outlines exactly what kind of power this attack has. Not only that, but he says only to use it as a last resort. So Goku has to use it in his following battle as well as nearly every movie and future BigBad.

** After unlocking Super Saiyan, Goku no longer uses the Kaio-Ken because even the original Super Saiyan form provides two-and-a-half times as much power for a much lesser drawback. He does use it once in Anime {{Filler}}, combining it with his Super Saiyan form. Even so, he only manages to do this because, in the other world, his body does not have the same limitations and even then the combo nearly depletes him fully after a few seconds. Not counting this one instance, Goku doesn't use the Kaio-Ken for over seventeen years before [[spoiler: he manages to combine it with his Super Saiyan Blue form and uses it during his battle against Hit.]]

* Negi's [[ShockAndAwe Axe of Lightning/Axe of Zeus]] spell in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. Taught by Evangeline at the start of Vol. 8, he was naturally forced to do it perfectly by the end of the volume to defeat the BigBad for that StoryArc.

* In ''SummerWars'', a lot of the Jinnouchi family members have skills or positions that end up becoming relevant to the fight against Love Machine. The most important, though, are Kenji's math abilities and [[spoiler:Natsuki's Koi-Koi skills]].

* Occurs in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' during the moxibustion storyline. Cologne teaches Ranma [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential a new technique]] so he can fight back against Happosai without strength, a technique which requires Ranma to stay calm and not emotionally react to his opponent. Genma, his father, immediately tries to get a rise out of him with "Humiliating Photo Fu," whipping out embarrassing naked baby pictures. The whole sequence seems like an extended riff on Genma's usual JerkAss tendencies...but Ranma ''actually puts Humiliating Photo Fu to use'' during the climactic battle against Happosai, by flashing photos of himself [[GenderBender as a girl]] in lingerie.

* In the second episode of ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Kiritsugu practices reloading his Thompson Contender, noting that the process takes about two seconds. [[spoiler: This speed is put to the test twenty-two episodes later during his final battle with Kirei, where on two occasions he needs to reload the gun before his opponent can get back into melee range.]]

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' Gray learned how to handle himself in a motorcycle chase against [[spoiler:Racer]], and can strip in a split second. In his fight against [[spoiler:Sugarboy]] he steals a motorcycle to pursue him and and dodges an attack by taking off his jacket quicker than the eye can see.

* ''Manga/SlamDunk'' is called ''after'' a sort-of ChekhovsSkill: it's one of the most spectacular moves ever in basketball and Sakuragi decides to make it his own. It takes him quite a while to master it, but it becomes '''very''' handy in [[spoiler: the second match against Ryonan, where Sakuragi scores a magnificent one to give the victory to Shohoku.]]
** Similarly, Captain Akagi spends half an episode teaching Sakuragi how to do rebounds. Sakuragi eventually becomes so good at this specific move that it becomes his ''other'' signature skill, and it's vital to the team in the match against Shoyo.

* ''Anime/ShokgekiNoSoma'': Soma realizes that the traits he so despised in [[spoiler: Mimasaka Subaru]] make him just the person he needs to help him run his festival booth. [[spoiler: Put simply, Mimasaka's high technical skills and ability to duplicate any dish to perfection may not make ''him'' anyone in the real culinary world without creativity to back it up, but it makes him a dream ''sous-chef''.]]
