* Iraq under Saddam Hussein's rule, while he boasts on having one of the largest army's in the world, all he has is numbers, as his military is composed mostly of unwilling conscripts, and equipped with outdated weapons since the Cold War. Needless to say Iraq got easily curb stomped in the Persian Gulf War, and in the US invasion of Iraq.

Can overlap with FearlessFool, MilesGloriosus, SmallNameBigEgo or SuperLoser. They may also be a KidSamurai or YoungGun who knows how to talk themselves up just enough to get themselves into serious trouble. Compare FakeUltimateHero and FeetOfClay, when the character is ''alleged'' to be strong by other people. Contrast GentleGiant, CowardlyLion, and TheSoCalledCoward. Also contrast the SmugSuper, who will usually have very good reasons to be smug, as well as the AwesomeEgo.

* Self-proclaimed "strongest in Gensokyo" Cirno from ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'', a stage 2 boss on a good day and a stage 1 miniboss on a bad one (in a game that usually has seven stages). Not entirely a "weakling" (considering that she is a [[RedShirt fai]][[{{Mooks}} ry]]), but not hot stuff by any means either. Fans will often take this UpToEleven and make her even weaker than she is depicted in canon.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'': Patrick Colasour, who brags about being undefeated in over 2000 simulation matches ''even as his mecha is being sliced apart''. Throughout the series, he talks big and acts like an ace pilot, but always gets shot down with little fanfare. His miraculous survival of all the times he's been shot down earns him the disparaging nickname of "The Immortal Colasour", but he misses the point and thinks it's genuine praise. In a subversion, he actually does grow more competent as the series goes on, and by the end is a respectably skilled pilot, though still nowhere near AcePilot status.

* ”Literature/TheIronTeeth” web serial has a lot of guys like this. They're called goblins. Every goblin thinks it's the toughest thing around, even when its obviously not.
