** Your rival in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' is always a step (or more) ahead of you. For example, he boasts about having captured 40 Pokémon when you meet him on the S.S. Anne, at which point the player has probably caught barely half that number. [[note]] It is possible to have that many caught by that point, but it requires a lot of level grinding to evolve your team, or outside trading.[[/note]]

** Your [[PlayingWithATrope Played With]] in regards to your rival in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' is ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. He's always a step (or more) ahead of you.you, getting to places and making noteworthy achievements much faster than you can. For example, he boasts about having captured 40 Pokémon when you meet him on the S.S. Anne, at which point the player has probably caught barely half that number. [[note]] It is possible to have that many caught by that point, but it requires a lot of level grinding to evolve your team, or outside trading.[[/note]][[/note]] However, the player winds up turning the trope right back on his head by winning every single battle you have with him [[note]]except possibly the very first one, the only time in the game where losing to him still progresses the story[[/note]], culminating in you yanking the title of Champion out from under him within hours- or possibly even MINUTES- of him acquiring it. By the time of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', [[TookALevelInKindness he's mellowed out enough]] that he's able to admit that ultimately, Red (the player character) wound up being this trope to him, rather than the other way around as he initially believed.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle was on the winning side of a very one sided rivalry with Mic Tierney in Memphis Power Pro Wrestling.



* The reason the Canadian Ninjas hate the Global Green Gangsters. Portia Perez and Nicole Matthews were the names most heavily associated with Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}'s {{tag team}} division until Kellie Skater, a FearlessFool, started tagging with the [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty dirty sneak]] Tomoka Nakagawa. After Matthews won the singles title, she and Perez went to 3G to inform them it proved the Ninja's superiority only to be laid out by Nakagawa.

Nakagawa. Their only solace was on that neither member of 3G would win the winning side of a very one sided rivalry with Mic Tierney in Memphis Power Pro Wrestling.belt until both teams had broken up.

** Barry is slowly averting this, however, with increases in speed, skill and experience. The reason for many loss is that he is still growing as a hero.

* In the first mid-season finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Barry finally meets and confronts the Reverse-Flash, his mother's killer. Everything had been building up to this epic fight... which has Barry being on the end of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown by the man in the yellow suit, who is clearly much faster than him. Barry even admits he's no longer the fastest man in the world, and Firestorm has to save his ass from being beaten to death by the other speedster. Season 2 introduces Zoom, a crazed speedster from a parallel world, who delivers an even more brutal beatdown during his first fight with Barry, leaving the latter unable to walk for a few days. Season 3 brings Savitar, a self-described "god of speed", whose mastery of the Speed Force is unparalleled. Savitar even states that neither the Reverse-Flash nor Zoom were Barry's real enemies. It's always been him. On the hero side, Wally turns out to be faster than Barry ''on his first day''. His progress is also much faster than Barry's. Once Barry realizes that, he starts training Wally to be even faster in order to [[spoiler:be fast enough to save Iris from Savitar in the near future]]. Wally has greater speed, but Barry has learned many tricks and has plenty of experience. He's also no longer as brash as the more youthful Wally.

Wally has greater speed, but Barry has learned many tricks and has plenty of experience. He's also no longer as brash as the more youthful Wally. There's also Grodd, a metagorilla with PsychicPowers and advanced intelligence, not to mention inhuman strength. Barry can't do much about him, and even his patented supersonic punch is easily intercepted by Grodd. Then Grodd is sent to Gorilla City on Earth-2, a place chock-full of metagorillas just like Grodd. Now Grodd is forced to bow down to Solovar, the ruler of Gorilla City. When we are shown a fight between Grodd and Solovar in the next episode, the latter utterly [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] the former, and only Barry's interference stops Solovar from finishing off his opponent.

'''Henry:''' Face it, Pierce is the best cutter in the outfit. He's certified in chest ''and'' general surgery. Frank, in case you haven't read the papers, there's a war on. We're here to patch people together! We can't be so G.I. we lose patients!\\

* Creator/EliWallach was one of the greatest, most good looking character actors who ever lived, a super nice guy, and though a major star on Broadway, he was a B-Lister in Hollywood. Every time he was in a movie with a bigger name costar, he was normally one of the last to be billed (save for ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' and ''Film/BabyDoll''). Yet he was one of the reigning Hollywood kings of "Always Someone Better". His A-List costars felt intimidated by his naturalistic acting ability and saw him as a threat to their popularity. During the making of ''Film/TheMisfits'', Creator/MarilynMonroe demanded that most of Wallach's scenes be cut so that his talent doesn't outshine her own (It arguably did anyway). After ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' got made, Creator/ClintEastwood felt upstaged and left the Spaghetti Western genre for good, deciding to make his own Western movies in Hollywood.

This wasn't always the case, however, as Creator/ZeroMostel got all the praise for his performance in ''Theatre/{{Rhinoceros}}'' while Wallach felt that he struggled to hold his own as a star of the play.
