** Among the schools, Jatkosota High is the most infamous for both its excellent gunners and insane drivers. Because their school is poor, the students are compensating their lack of firepower with skills (and some property stealing from other schools) they passed down from generations of senior-junior. Because of this, they excel on rough terrains like mountains or swamps. Former vice-commander of Jatkosota, Lili, dodges attacks from Kuromorimine by making her T-28 do a wheelie at drop of hat, something that is lampshaded as borderline miracle as the tank weights 28 tonnes. The current commander's driver, Mikko, modified the BT-42 with Christie suspension so even if its tread chains snap, it still can move at high speed just with its drive wheels. When the drive wheels are shot, ''Mikko balances the tank on its one side and keeps driving until her gunner has a clear shot''.

* Anime/{{REDLINE}} features a whole [[WorldOfBadass roster]] but the biggest standouts have got to be Sonoshee [[RedBaron "Cherry Boy Hunter"]] Mclaren, who once dealt with an incoming missile by popping open her cockpit's hatch and ''shooting it out of the sky with a goddamned [[ViolationOfCommonSense pistol]]'', and "Sweet" JP, notable for [[HonorBeforeReason never carrying weapons]] on his sled, preferring to win or lose by pure unmitigated ''driving skill'', and sporting enough talent to drift circles around some of the other racers in the film to the point he can casually perform feats of racing that defy all laws of physics. Shame about his [[CaptainCrash luck]] though.

* A sci-fi variant, Joker in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' can do ridiculously awesome things with a spaceship, in this case, the ''[[CoolStarship Normandy]]''. Joker is another NonActionGuy due to his brittle bones medical condition. He is also snarktacular. Anyone who doubts that he fits this trope obviously hasn't seen [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome what he does at the beginning of the suicide mission]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''.
