*** Naruto also uses this to maximize his training time. If a technique takes one hundred hours of practice to master, then it will take one hour for himself and ninety-nine clones to learn it.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Eren Yeager is noted to be a fairly average soldier beyond his high scores in hand-to-hand combat. Since their opponents are man-eating giants, unarmed combat is considered to be a waste of time for a soldier to learn and not considered in their final scores. [[DarkActionGirl Cynical]] Annie mentors Eren in numerous unarmed techniques, which comes in handy later on when [[spoiler: he discovers his ability to transform into a Titan]]. Then it becomes even ''more'' vital, when he uses several of the techniques Annie taught him to disable [[spoiler: the Armored Titan]], a much larger and tougher opponent.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ichigo took karate lessons from an early age, initially because he wanted to be the kind of son who could protect his mother. When he finally became a shinigami, he was therefore already a very competent fighter who didn't need to learn how to fight from scratch.
* In ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' Spike had a guy requesting to teach him martial arts, where Spike demonstrates a knife disarm and the philosophy of being calm as water. The guy was having a hard time understanding it all, but in the climactic fight he manages to pull off the same move against a mook. [[spoiler: And immediately subverted when he is shot and killed in the midst of his celebration.]]
* The first episode of ''Anime/{{Diebuster}}'' shows Nono accidentally splitting a plate in half with absolutely no effort. She mentions, almost as a throwaway joke, that she's good at splitting things. Fast forward to the second half of the series. [[spoiler:Nono uses that same power to completely bisect Saturn's moon Titan and then later a freaking black hole, which even the characters admit should be impossible.]]
* ''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.
** It's okay though. It may have all the power of life, the stars, and the universe, but it never works anyway.
*** [[spoiler: Except on Kid Buu. At the end of the series.]]
** After unlocking Super Saiyan, Goku no longer uses the Kaio-Ken (also taught to him by King Kai) because even the original Super Saiyan form provides two-and-a-half times as much power for a much smaller 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.]]
* 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
* 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.]]
* Subverted in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''. After completely rocking out at the Cultural Festival, Haruhi comments that she never knew that [[BadassBookworm Yuki]] was such a good guitar player. Kyon reminds us that [[SuperpowerLottery she probably picked up the skill the moment Haruhi suggested it because of her freakishly awesome powers.]]
* In Part 3 of ''Anime/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', in the ''very first episode'', [[FlyingBrick Star Platinum]] is able to [[FlashStep bring]] Jotaro assorted objects without him moving. This power is later used to psych out Daniel D'Arby in his poker match with Jotaro [[spoiler: making him doubt his own cheating]].
* In ''Anime/{{Kemonozume}}'', Bon sadly mentions that his [[spoiler:Flesh Eater arms]] prevent him from achieving his dream of being a [[spoiler:shot putter]]. Near the end, [[spoiler:when Toshihiko and Yuka need Ooba's eyes to stop the giant rolling ball, Bon picks up Ooba's head and shot puts it back to them]].
** Yuka also uses the paralysis technique Toshihiko taught her on [[spoiler:Toshihiko, to stop him from following her]] in the last episode, [[spoiler:but it doesn't last long enough to work]].
* The fights in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' often feature Kenichi, at a critical moment, using a technique taught to him in the last training session shown.
** And occasionally bringing back old techniques from earlier in the series, such as the yamazuki double punch. Other characters make particular note of whenever he uses the "kouhou - haihou" stepping method, as it was the first technique he was ever taught. This isn't SoLastSeason either: the techniques usually remain just as useful as they were the first time.



* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** Negi's [[ShockAndAwe Axe of Lightning/Axe of Zeus]] spell. 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.
** A more far-reaching example; in volume 3, Negi uses a bunch of magical decoy spirits during his fight with Evangeline. 200 chapters later he pulls out a ''much'' larger scale version of the same technique to fight [[spoiler: Kurt Godel]].
*** And likewise used with the [[NoKillLikeOverKill Thousand Bolts spell]]
** During the fight between Negi and Rakan, Jack mentions that now several people in the world know how to effectively battle Negi's Thunder God technique. Guess which elemental [[spoiler: Averruncus]] Fate ends up fighting?
* ''Anime/{{Monster}}'':
** Nina is shown innocently practicing Aikido. Later, when Tenma is attacked, it comes in handy.
** [[BadassGrandpa Dr. Reichwein]] is shown on an indoor jogging track while mulling over a case. This helps when he has to chase down two hoodlums at a dead sprint.



* ''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.

* In the first chapter of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Shanks scares a sea monster away by staring it down. Over ''400 chapters'' later this is revealed to be an actual [[FightingSpirit superpower]] that any pirate captain worth their salt has.
** Actually it's a very rare superpower (it was mentioned to be an innate ability that only one in a million people have) and only a few elite pirate captains have it. Luffy, being the protagonist, is able to use it.
*** This is only half-true. This power is called Haki, and comes in three forms (Their names change depending on the translation, but the following names all come from the Viz translation, for clarity's sake). There's the Color of Arms Haki which allows their users to bypass Devil Fruit users' NighInvulnerability, the Color of Observation Haki which allows one to sense others' presence and anticipate their attacks, and the aforementioned power to knock people out, the Color of the Supreme King. The first two types are common to everyone and can be awakened with proper training, but only a select few possess the third type, Luffy being one of them.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Eren Yeager is noted to be ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** One episode had Team Rocket against
a fairly average soldier beyond poacher who stored his high scores captures in hand-to-hand combat. Since electrified cages. Due to [[ATwinkleInTheSky their opponents run-ins with Ash and Pikachu]] [[OnceAnEpisode every episode for five years at that point]], Meowth was able to completely ignore the shock from the cage as he unlocked it.
** In the episode "Noodles, Roamin' Off!", Team Rocket breaks up and each pursues their own goals before reuniting in the end. Oddly, everything they do comes back to help Jessie earn her third ribbon in the later episode "Dressed For Jess Success". Jessie decides to develop her Jessilina role and distances it more from her own career in Team Rocket...thus turning it into a role that anyone can play, including James. Meowth's natural talent for making ramen noodles wins him the appeal round. And James's fearless battle style against a far greater foe, though only infuriating his opponent before, pays off when his Carnivine throws Dawn's Mamoswine completely off its game and causes it to go berserk, costing it points with the judges and winning him the third ribbon.
** Meowth's potential culinary skills would continue being developed throughout later episodes. He would end up winning several appeal rounds for Jessie in the Kalos showcases and in the "Eevee and Friends'' short, he even acts as cook for the Eeveelutions' party.
