* ''Series/SoWeird'': Annie is supposed to be a great singer, and they manage to work in a song of hers in nearly every episode of the third season. But the actress who plays her (although she has [[InstantStar gotten quite a bit]] [[GrowingTheBeard better with age]]) was above-average at best.

** A lot of Nardole's characterization is established through pieces of dialogue referencing a supposed criminal past involving murder and black markets which goes against his initially cowardly and oafish persona. The closest we see of his baddassary are his [[HollywoodHacking computer hacking skills]] and [[PressurePoint Vulcan nerve pinch]].

* ''Series/Charmed'': A good chunk of season 5 onward involves Phoebe's job as an advice columnist where she is repeatedly showered with praise and fame for her "edgy" and "intuitive" advice. While we hear a few snippets of her work over the course of the series (none of which are worth writing home about), Phoebe's success is gained pretty quickly as she already has own billboard in under a year of working as an advice columnist, a job she got with little to no qualifications or experience.

* On ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Curtis Holt is apparently a bronze medal winning decathlete, which is constantly referenced by the other characters. This should means that he is among the world's best when it comes to running, jumping and throwing ability. However, he is very much portrayed as a {{Nerd}} stereotype and is shown to be pretty physically inept (for instance, claiming that Oliver's signature 'salmon ladder' pull-ups are impossible).

* [[Series/GameOfThrones "Game of Thrones"]]: Renly Baratheon is frequently presented as being intelligent and a serious statesman, but we see very little of this in practice. He does nothing to halt Robert's spendthrift kingdom, which admittedly vexed even Jon Arryn's abilities. Most notably he agrees with Pycelle, Varys and Littlefinger with Robert's desire to assassinate Daenerys Targaryen. Robert on his deathbed even dismisses him as a YesMan compared to Ned Stark who was the only one to oppose it. After [[spoiler:his death]] Margaery claims Renly was brave and gallant, however we never see any evidence of this, considering he was planning to attack Stannis with a much larger army. These flaws weren't present in the book, where it is quite clear that Renly is more style then substance, showing no real ruling skills outside of publicity and coming across as a vain and sleazy figure who is basically just engaging in a naked power-grab through AppealToForce.

** Her ability was shown once; she thought up the ploy to get The Arcadian Hotel demolished: [[spoiler:since the lion's head figure was "iconic", simply remove it, then there's no reason to keep the building. (It wound up in Barney's apartment )]]

** This is a recurring problem with ''Glee'', in that every single performance is so polished that the audience needs to be told things like when a performance is "bad" and who has the best singing voice. For example, the club's flawless performance in "Sectionals" is stated by a judge to be "good" but "not that rehearsed".

[[TruthInTelevision However]], judging criteria for music competitions tends to be ''extremely'' esoteric and focused on minutiae that are not readily apparent to a television audience.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': In Seasons 1-10, Tom Servo's hovering ability is only inferred from his design, since he can't actually fly above the height of the desk used to conceal the puppeteers. Starting with Season 11, Servo can fly, but only in the theater.
