Compare with AchievementsInIgnorance, FallingIntoTheCockpit, LikeADuckToWater, and ReadingsAreOffTheScale (although this trope applies to a person rather than a machine).

* ''LyricalNanoha''. As a kid fumbling around with her staff for the first time, she destroys a monster within ''minutes'', she saves multiple universes multiple times at the age of ''nine'', completely shattering the learning curve in the process, and years later as a fully trained battlemage, she's not only a literal [[TheAce ace]] (well, "[[GratuitousEnglish A's]]") but has to have [[PowerLimiter limiter upon limiter]] attached to herself and her staff at all times so as not to GodMode her enemies to death in '''seconds'''. The in-story explanation for the limiters is that a single unit is not allowed to have that many high-level mages in it, for fear of mutiny.

* Non-sports example: Our knowledge of the outer planets of our UsefulNotes/SolarSystem was helped because right off the bat as we began Space Exploration in the 1960's the outer planets properly aligned for a "grand tour" in 1977 - an alignment that only happens every 175 years. The last time it had happened was 1802, and the next time will be in 2152. The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_program Voyager Probes]] were sent on this tour.

** This seems somewhat justified after playing the sequel, as after seeing what Jehuty is capable of with a trained pilot in control, we realize exactly how little of the mecha's capabilities its first young pilot was able to make use of. It really was using only its most basic features, assisted by the AI; it wasn't just a handwave after all.
** Cage Midwell in ''Zone Of The Enders: the Fist of Mars'' similarly ends up fighting several battles when he ends up in control of a SuperPrototype. In both cases, it's somewhat justified by the fact that the Orbital Frames in question also come equipped with powerful A.I.s who can help them in combat.
