** Obelisk Blue students are claimed to be the top-ranked students, and being in the dorm is a sign of prestige. For the most part, unless they're major recurring characters, they don't seem much more skilled than their Red and Yellow counterparts. About three-quarters of the cast is below Blue, and [[AlmightyJanitor all are more skilled than the majority of its students.]] Indeed, several plots (the Duel Giant, Kenzan's introduction, the White Dorm, the Duel Zombies) were predicated on someone of a lower dorm being [[TheWorfEffect able to certifiably hand dozens of Blue students their asses.]] About the only implication of Blues being more skilled is MonsterOfTheWeek students have a mild tendency towards being Blue.

** Burter of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Ginyu Force]] repeatedly boasts that he's the fastest in the universe, to the extent that he's in disbelief that Goku is faster than him. However, both Captain Ginyu and Frieza are ''clearly'' much faster than he is.

However, both Captain Ginyu and Frieza are ''clearly'' much faster than he is. Lampshaded by Goku in their fight:
-->'''Burter:''' "What?! How did you sneak up on me?! I'm supposed to be the fastest in the universe!"\\
'''Goku:''' "[[DeadpanSnarker I guess that makes you the second-fastest, then.]]"

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'':
** Isao Kachidoki, who placed second in the last Maiami Championship tournament, is treated as an incredibly skilled and expertly-trained Duelist. However, he doesn't know how Ranks work in a world where Xyz Summoning is quite common, which makes this hard to believe. Although considering how he physically beats the opponent in a duel to prevent them from getting action cards and whatnot, his opponents likely have a hard time focusing.
** Yuya is proclaimed by just about every character, especially by the end of the series, to be a ''transcendentally'' good entertainer, who can have entire dimensions watching his performances in awe and [[DefeatMeansFriendship redeem hard-edged villains by Dueling them]] and showing them how to smile. It should go without saying that his actual onscreen Duels aren't this good, because all of Earth isn't watching ''ARC-V'', but even then, most fan polls of "favorite Duels" tend to favor ones involving Shun, Yuzu, Jack, and Gongenzaka, and Yuya's own Duels are often criticized for his overreliance on Action Cards or seen as carried by his opponents.

** Due to the fact that the series starts on a rather high power scale, the audience more or less has to take how strong a given character is [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours at the words of other characters.]] Even to the end of the series, you'll still see a character being able to blow up mountains, create giant ki blasts, or move faster than the eye can follow as an OhCrap moment, when such feats were shown as early as ''Manga/DragonBall''. More or less, the series loves to say that a character is thousands of times stronger than another, when their actual feats appear to be on about the same level (if not lower).

This was lampshaded in one episode of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', where Freeza creates a massive explosion with a wave of his hand, at which Vegeta angrily claims "Not impressed! I can do that, too!"

** Team Unicorn is praised for their amazing teamwork, yet when Team 5D's looks up data on their past duels, it's revealed that Andre defeated each opposing team by himself without relying on Breo or Jean. Even in their match against Team 5D's, Andre did the majority of the work by defeating both Jack and Aki, as well as cutting Yusei's life points in half.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' has Yuma, who overlaps with InformedFlaw. The intent of his character was that he started at the level of a determined neophyte and ended as the most skilled Duelist in the series. In the former case, he lost on occasion, but [[InvincibleHero never when there was anything on the line.]] In the latter case, though he was certainly successful, his strategies [[BoringButPractical overwhelmingly amounted to]] "make two Level 4s, go into Hope, go into Hope's upgraded form, use [[StoryBreakerPower Shining Draw]] if I haven't won yet." The fact that the latter amounts to cheating by any sane definition makes his status even more questionable.
