* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', each of the main characters possess and represent one of the three Triforces, with Princess Zelda herself possessing the Triforce of Wisdom. While she's certainly not ''un''intelligent, she never really displays the sort of wits that would back up such a bold description, whereas Link and Ganondorf live up to their respective Triforces (Courage and Power) much more overtly.

This is less the case in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', where she is portrayed as being more knowledgeable about the ancient Sheikah technology than just about anyone else.

** The Antivan Crows claim they are the best and most deadly assasins in Thedas, but when Zevran starts a war against them, the Crows are the loser side of that war... against one elf. It seems that the Crows wasn't too skilled that they claims.

** The Grey Wardens's Joining bring them enhanced strengh, stamina and, in mages case; magical abilities via the Taint, but in-game they wasn't more powerful than any other warrior, rogue or mage.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'': [[BigBad Skull Face]] is said to be Big Boss' equal as a soldier, to the extent that Zero considered [[spoiler:him a worthy candidate to complete [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Operation Snake Eater]] if Snake himself could not]]. However, we never see him actually fight, and he loses his cool the second his plan starts to go off the rails.

* In ''VivaPinata'', it is mentioned that the Eaglair "has earned respect through its natural nobility, tempered strength, and thumping great talons." Somehow that 'respect' doesn't seem to stop larger Pinatas from walking over it, and it's 'talons' are somewhat nonexistent due to the Eaglair's legs and feet being a pair of ''stumps''.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has Alphinaud as the group's infiltration and spy specialist. We never see this in practice as it's only stated in dialogue.

* Leon Silverberg of ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' is supposed to be perhaps the greatest strategists to ever live. Except the player only sees brilliance from his former student Shu, who is so terrified of Leon's unbeatable brilliance that he [[spoiler:nearly kills himself to bring Leon down.]] Never mind that Leon is never seen do anything all that special. Considering the mind-boggling brilliance of some of the strategists in the series, Leon is an extreme case of this trope.

Considering the mind-boggling brilliance many of some of the strategists in the series, Leon is an extreme case of this trope.his apparent feats [[BadassOnPaper aren't quite as awesome as they might sound]].

** Zevran explicitly states in his introduction that he's skilled at picking locks. He joins the party with absolutely no ranks in the lockpicking ability.

* ''VagrantStory'' 'Commander' Samantha is a Catholic-schoolgirl-styled, doe-eyed ingenue who is never seen doing any kind of commanding or ever really understanding what is going on around her.
