** Peter can also be this way as he's convinced he's a jock and can be a star athlete if his coaches let him, not grasping he has no athletic talent whatsoever.

** Actually, this Trope defines Jason to a T. He seems to believe that the laws of fantasy apply to reality more often than not, but relying on them usually only get him in trouble or gets him hurt (or both). For example, when he tries to imitate SpiderMan and builds a web-shooter, he wonders why he only succeeds in getting himself tangled in it. He plays ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' with Marcus, and after his characters are slaying orc armies, he wonders why the rulebook doesn't say his mother trumps them when she tells them to stop so she can set the table. Quite literally, there are dozens of examples.

* YesMan: One 1990 StoryArc has Roger getting a summer intern named Skip Riley who completely sucks up to him. While this thrills Roger, it saddens Peter, who feels that Roger is pushing him aside in favor of Skip (one strip has him gushing about Skip to Andy and completely ignoring Peter's request to come out and play catch). At the end, Roger has a meeting with a higher-up, causing Skip to ditch Roger entirely and start sucking up to him instead, in order to work ''his'' way up the ladder.
