* The trope is ''heavily'' referenced in ''[[{{WebOriginalFiction/Takotsubo}} Takotsubo: The story of a superhero]].'' Chinese-American Cord Cai is a troubled young man who repeatedly [[InternalizedCategorism calls himself a failure because he's not a kung-fu artist or a doctor.]] After his fiancé Roland gets shot and the police completely mishandle it, [[TragicVillain Cord thinks this is a sign that leaving the streets is hopeless,]] shoots the murderer because gang justice is better than no justice, and resigns himself to running a [[NeighborhoodFriendlyGangsters vigilante gang.]] Cord clearly IS gifted--just not in the stereotypical fields: His eloquence after his ''InterruptedSuicide'' makes the nurse Thad fall in love with him, he's got a self-designed broken-heart tribal tattoo, and he started East 13 because the [[PoliceAreUseless police fucked up on Roland's murder,]] belying his strong sense of compassion and justice. As the tagline states, Cord is a superhero who [[WrongGenreSavvy shoehorns himself into the villain role]] because [[GenreDeconstruction he's never seen any Asian-American superheroes.]]
