* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' has Timothy McGee who is supposedly an experienced Eagle Scout, yet in one episode he blunders into a thicket of poison ivy because he inexplicably has no idea what it looks like.

** Okona from the episode "The Outrageous Okona". Obviously meant to be a Han Solo-pastiche (particularly because he is ''dressed exactly like Han Solo''), the smirking Okona comes across as an overgrown fratboy with a sense of privilege that would stagger a Trump. Riker and Wesley both gush over him, and he got a fair bit of tail on the Enterprise.

** Deanna Troi had empathic abilities which Captain Picard repeatedly described as useful or even invaluable. But it always seemed that everything she "sensed" was already painfully obvious to anyone who was paying attention and never especially helpful.

*** In a final bout of irony and humor, the original plan was for Morn to say the last line during the series finale. It was cut.

** This becomes a plot point in later seasons--when Rachel graduates high school and gets into a prestigious college for the arts in New York City, she is clearly inferior to her classmates and is acknowledged as such in-universe. Her biggest story arc in the fourth season involves coming to terms with the fact that what qualified as "extremely talented" in Ohio translates to "amateurish" in New York.

* ''Series/RaisingHope'' played this for laughs in an episode that centered around Jimmy's amazing singing ability. When we actually hear him sing, he's terrible, and the characters all realize that the only time they ever heard his supposed "amazing singing" was when they were drunk.

***Probably intended to never actually be true, or otherwise Angel's secret would have been revealed sooner. She finds out that he's a vampire only seven episodes into the series and is immediately given a secretive demeanor so it's likely he was intended to be a vampire from the beginning.

* ''Series/OneLifeToLive'': SoapOpera example: Matthew was basically [[FreaksAndGeeks Sam Weir]] until he was paralyzed in a car accident in March 2009. Since then, his pre-disability athletic exploits have grown to the point where the yearbook shows him on the 9th grade interscholastic team in every fall and winter sport.

** Subverted in an episode of season nine. Castiel meets with Bartholomew, who goes on at length about what a great strategist Castiel is, but only references past events that all happened offscreen. Then Bartholomew shows Castiel his latest intelligence -- and Castiel makes a tactically sound suggestion that Bartholomew hadn't thought of.
This list shows the last 10 events of 152. Show all.
