** If tanking isn't your thing, another incredibly simple and effective strategy is to make a dexterity-based build. The game practically railroads you into doing so with all the dexterity-scaling weapons you get showered with early-game. One only needs to level their dexterity and stamina stats to their soft-cap, dump the rest in vitality, and gear up with as much stamina-regen items as they can, since they stack. With a fully upgraded dex-scaling weapon and the hornet ring (which greatly increases backstab damage), it's very rare for a backstab to not be a one-shot kill, even against players with over-leveled vitality and all but the heaviest armor sets. With regenerating stamina and the ability to fast-roll, you'll rarely if ever sustain much damage, and the combination of a very quick animation compared to the second and third games and the less-than stellar servers make landing a backstab or two a non-issue. Even the infamous Giant-Dad build could be countered with this.
** In the second game, Havel's set remains prevalent because, even though poise took a considerable nerf, its defensive stats are just as good as they were, and DSII's equip load limit is far more lenient. Additionally, the whole getup can be upgraded to +5.

* In Drift Spirits, the Honda CR-Z (particularily at 3*++ or 4*++ rarity) is extremely commonly used due to it having the lowest gas cost per race in the game (its other stats bar acceleration are mediocre at best without the right parts, even for a 3* car), making it a [[BoringButPractical]] vehicle that is even more highly used than it already is during Boss Battle Events (where double the normal gas cost is used per race).

* ''VideoGame/Overwatch'' players usually avert this pretty well, but occasionally (read: about half the time) you'll find a player who chooses Reaper or Hanzo above all else, even if what the team really needs is a healer or tank.

** Good luck finding a Skilled player that isn't using either the Rocket Launcher or Sniper, for the reasons of high damage and you don't have to lead your target respectively.

* For ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', most players will choose to go for the [[GoldenEnding pacifist]] run first and will tell new players to do the same. While the pacifist ending is considered to be the most heartwarming ending in the entire game, there's another reason why everyone goes for that ending first. [[spoiler: Completing a [[KillEmAll No Mercy]] run involves having the entire world destroyed and locking you out of the game, preventing you from replaying unless you agree to give up your soul to the BiggerBad. If you do so, then the pacifist ending is tainted forever by showing the BiggerBad had taken over the player character and will kill everyone. The only way to get around this is to either edit the game's files to prevent it from reading how you did your runs or deleting the save files completely to start over, which is more difficult to do on the Steam version due how the cloud saves work. Also, a more mundane reason being that most fans will argue the No Mercy run won't trigger the same emotional reactions unless you do it ''after'' a Pacifist run, and actually build bonds with the characters you're therefore turning against, as opposed to just slaughtering character you have no personal investment in.]]
