** And common-rarity cards also tend towards this. Rare cards typically have powerful and unique effects... but it'll be rare in-itself for anyone to have more than one, making them useless if countered. Common cards may have simpler effects, but they're easy to get and can easily be used multiple times.

* [[TheMedic Healers]] in {{MMORPG}}s are often this. [[PlayingWithFire Fiery doom]] or [[CoolSword big swords]] are a lot cooler, but [[ShootTheMedicFirst you try getting anywhere in a dungeon without a dedicated healer in your group]]. (However, a lot of video games try to circumvent this by giving healing spells effects just as spectacular as their offensive counterparts, such as [[LightTheWay big shining lights]], [[SummonMagic summoning gods]], [[ReviveKillsZombies killing zombies with healing potions]], or [[GreenThumb massive plant growth]].)

** The same is true for the RealLife martial arts. Complex and flashy moves look good, but they are often difficult to execute, require a lot of training, and, if failed, often leave you open for a counterattack. Many masters discourage their use even in tournaments, and in a common street brawl you can do wery well with just a couple of boxing punches.

->"Of all the weapons in the vast [[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Soviet arsenal]], nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; [[ChildSoldiers and they do]]. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes [[INeedAFreakingDrink vodka]], caviar, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and suicidal novelists]]. One thing is for sure, [[TheAllegedCar no one was lining up to buy their cars]]."

Therefore, we have things that are much more "boring" and normal, but these things often contribute more to your success in the long term than the visually more impressive things.

* In strategy games, the basic combat unit is usually more efficient than the larger (and cooler looking) counterparts. {{Tournament play}}ers will often make heavy use of rather basic units in general. Any type of [[ZergRush rush]] depends on this trope.
