*** VGC 2016 appears to be heading this way as well, based on the results of the International Challenges and Regionals, even though the season features [[OlympusMons up to two legendaries per team]]. You'll have a hard time finding anyone using something other than Primal Groudon, Xerneas, (Mega) Rayquaza and/or Primal Kyogre as their legends of choice that rank high. And, of course, tried-and-true non-legendary staples like Mega Kangaskhan and Landorus-T are widely used too.

* By default, every single sports game aspiring to be realistic and featuring a large number of playable teams/athletes will suffer from this, since it reflects RealLife. Unless the player has an attachment to a team of lesser-than-God tier, or is CherryTapping, or the selection is made at random, inevitably only a select number of elites you can count on one hand will be played most of the times. For example, ''VideoGame/{{NBA 2K}}14'' players usually played as the San Antonio Spurs or Miami Heat, the previous year's NBA Finals participants.

*** ''Melee'''s top eight characters (Fox, Falco, Marth, Sheik, JigglyPuff, Peach, Ice Climbers, and C. Falcon) on the current tier list are of special note. You will almost *never* see anyone make a notable tournament placing without using one of those characters. Most notably, Fox, the game's best character is so viable that even players who main one of the other seven top tier characters in *Melee* will either switch to him mid-tournament or drop their current main altogether to exclusively main the leader of Star Fox. This is where the "20XX"[[note]] a hypothetical year in which everyone mains Fox and can play him perfectly[[/note]] joke comes from.

** Weapon variety, on the other hand, is usually exclusive to one specific weapon per class. Snipers are the most notable: due to a bug, attaching an ACOG scope to the [=M40A3=] [[GoodBadBugs raises its base power slightly]]. Combine with the Stopping Power perk and the usual increased damage with a body- or head-shot, and you've basically got a shorter-ranged, slightly-less-powerful version of ''Counter-Strike'''s AWP: OneHitKill on anyone, even if they have the Juggernaut perk that normally cancels out Stopping Power (chest and above is still a one-shot kill), which damn near ''everybody'' uses constantly. Any other weapon variety usually depends on the user's playstyle - if they like to rush and get in close, they're using the P90 for its fast fire rate and high capacity (usually with a suppressor so nobody can tell where they are from the gunshots). If they prefer blowing people up with the grenade launcher, they attach it to the AK-47 for its versatility. The Desert Eagle is the only sidearm that gets any use, due to being the only one to deal greater damage than the others. The light machine guns are kind of an inversion, however; there are three guns in that class, but the M60 generally sees the least use due to its noticeably slower rate of fire - most users are drawn to the RPD with its very low recoil and middling damage, with the few who don't use it being drawn to the M249's faster rate of fire and quicker reload. Shotguns, likewise, are near-universally ignored, with only the semi-auto M1014 seeing some use as an impromptu sidearm with the Overkill perk, thanks to their {{short range|Shotgun}} making using one as a primary weapon essentially a death sentence in most maps.

The shotguns, meanwhile, are near-universally ignored, with only the semi-auto M1014 seeing some use ignored except as an impromptu improvised sidearm with the Overkill perk, thanks to their {{short range|Shotgun}} making using one as a primary weapon essentially a death sentence in most maps.

* ''Call of Duty: World at War'' has two cooperative modes: co-op campaign, or VideoGame/NaziZombies. Absolutely ''nobody'' plays the former - even if a lobby is hosted in co-op campaign, it will inevitably switch to Nazi Zombies before the game starts. Treyarch pretty much entirely abandoned campaign co-op for their next two games in favor of Zombies mode due to this, though it's touted as finally returning for ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3''.

** Cobblestone houses are extremely common, due to stone (which turns into cobblestone when mined) being one of the most common types of blocks and being more durable than wood (with immunity to fire being a major perk over wood). It's not as strong as brick (which can resist Creeper explosions better than cobblestone can) but it's definitely easier to make it.

* Did a new ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}} IIDX'' version just arrive at your local arcade? If players are not trying the new songs, they're most likely playing [[KyuAndDanRanks Dan'inintei]] mode. Justified, in that moving up a version resets the player's ''dan'' rank so they have to re-establish it by clearing the updated course for their rank.
