* Franchise/SherlockHolmes has always had shades of this, but the [[Film/SherlockHolmes 2009 movie]] makes it explicit by showing his analysis, step by step, of how to beat the living shit out of an opponent. The 2011 sequel, ''[[Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows A Game of Shadows]]'' takes this even further with [[spoiler:Holmes and Moriarty deadlocked in an Awesome by Analysis duel ''in their minds'' before a single punch is thrown.]]

* In ''Series/{{Alphas}}'',Kat's Alpha ability is her insane procedural memory, allowing her to learn and keep complex skills remarkably quickly. Unfortunately, this being Alphas, there is the inevitable trade off: her declarative memory (i.e. everything else) only lasts for about a month, max. she has no idea who she is, or what she's done in her life. This can result in weird situations where she knows that if she has done this before, she'll be able to do it now...but whether she's ever done it before is anyone's guess.

* Jedi Master Sinube in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8594589/10/The-Unsuspecting-side-of-the-Force The Unsuspecting Side of the Force]]'' shows he was sent to speak with Literature/HarryPotter for exactly this reason. From a brief conversation, along with comments by others, he figures out pretty much the entirety of Harry's life story (at least on a general level) including that he's from the distant future and was himself a child of prophecy.

Some people learn by [[BadassBookworm flipping pages]]. Some people must gain knowledge [[TaughtByExperience through pain]]. Some people study by [[TaughtByTelevision television]]. And then there are those who [[SuperIntelligence just observe]]...See, when you are GoodWithNumbers you can substitute careful examination in place of careful practice, with the same results: success.

*** As a general rule, this is how Lelouch, as TheStrategist, fights. A stand out example is in the second season when Lelouch shows up to just in time to command his forces who are outnumbered and outgunned. Under a minute and with two orders, ''he wipes out an entire fleet'' due to having taking the time to learn the topography of the location.

Most skills take a certain measure of practice to master...unless you are GoodWithNumbers. [[HardWorkHardlyWorks Those lucky few]] can substitute careful examination in place of careful practice, with the same results: success.

Need to make a million-to-one shot to stop the Doomsday Device from exploding the world, but have never even fired a gun? Just run off some mental calculations about your gun's firing speed, friction, gravity, and the slightly-off-kilter scope (how exactly the analyzer knows all those variables is handwaved), and it's a done deal. Need to defeat a jujitsu master? Logically anticipate where his next strike will come from and remain one step ahead. Mental capacity is limitless when the plot is at stake!

* ''Anime/AttackOnTitan'': Eren Yeager learned one of Annie's fighting techniques after seeing it only twice.

* ''Anime/AttackOnTitan'': Eren Yeager learned one of Annie's fighting techniques after seeing it only twice. Granted, one of those times was during a training session in boot camp. He probably saw it a lot more than twice [[LawofConservationOfDetail but seeing him get ass kicked for hours and hours by the same technique would get boring, right?]]



* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''[='s=] protagonist Izuku Midoriya is a hero {{Otaku}} who spent most of his life collecting intricate notes about every hero he saw, which gives him a virtual library of techniques and specs. On top of that, he's a very quick thinker who can deduce the powers (and limitations) of his opponents, analyze their fighting styles, and [[IndyPloy create plans on short notice]], letting him stand up to people much more powerful than him. He also took a few pages from his friends and mentors to add to his own fighting style, such as some of Katsuki Bakugou's punches, Tenya Iida's kicks, or Mina Ashido's dance training.

*** For example, when facing the [[BadassGrandpa Third Raikage]] in battle, he learned from [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu Hachibi]] that both of them fell from exhaustion while their jutsus were still active. That gives him the idea that maybe the Third Raikage's Nukite damaged him. Testing that theory out, he entered [[SuperMode Sage Mode]] since he couldn't use his Nine-Tailed Chakra Mode at the moment. Creating a [[SphereOfDestruction Rasengan]], he used his sensing abilities and Frog Katas to dodge the Third's strike, spinning around and hitting his arm with the Rasengan. Which sent it crashing into his chest, leaving him open for sealing.
