*** Incidently, the newest expansion set contains a new version of some of the most iconic characters, including Deathwing, which is much better than its original version.

** One of the most useful cards in the TCG was Cleffa, a baby Pokemon with pitiful stats in-game. The TCG version had an attack that let you completley refresh your hand for 1 Energy (or 0 Energy in the remade version), and was very difficult to actually damage due to the Baby Rule. It got to the point where most competitive decks included specific cards to counter Cleffa, an idea that's laughable to videogame players.

* Amusingly, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper'' got the ''video game'' version of this. As a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover between most of the major ''Final Fantasy'' titles, many characters, heroes, villians, and side, are represented, each with varying levels of PowerCreepPowerSeep applied to them, but also most of them being stronger than ''the main character.'' However, the epitome of this has to go to Echo, a collaboration character from another ''Final Fantasy'' mobile game that [[NoExportForYou only exists in Japan.]] She's also a side character at that. However, upon arriving in ''FFRK'', she received a weapon from the gacha that power creeped '''almost all defensive [[LimitBreak Soul Breaks]] ever''' by adding Hastega to normal defensive buffs. Non-Japanese players started complaining almost immediately about how she had basically outclassed Tyro (the main character) and ''Y'shtola'' (an extremely popular ''FFXIV'' character) in one fell swoop.

Added DiffLines:

** Deathwing, the most powerful dragon in Warcraft lore, is a card with excellent stats... but discards your whole hand, leaving you without resources for the rest of the game. Considering how easily minions can be removed or killed in Hearthstone, this is generally considered a very bad deal.

* ''UltimateMuscle'' Battle Card Game inverted this trope. Even though the 'translator' (or guy who decided to make this playable and semi-balanced) nerfed a few of the cards, the Legendary characters like Ramenman or Buffaloman were nearly impossible to beat with the common wrestlers like Gorgeousman!

* ''Manga/DragonballZ'':
** Tapkar is a gag character during the World Games Saga whose in-show stint is as a FragileSpeedster, but in Score's original ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' card game his card powers are so overpowered not only was he banned, they named a redemption after him.

* Killer Robot Games' Legendary Showdown is a card game which draws material from three webcomics: Dr. McNinja, Girl Genius, and Gunnerkrigg Court. While the Dr. McNinja cards are relatively accurate in terms of their relative power, the second edition cards (GG and GK) are much less consistent with their source material. For example: Maxim, Oggie, and Dimo are all 5 point cards on a 0-10 pt scale (except for two 12-pt cards) despite being members of the super soldier race of Jaegars and shown to be much more dangerous than nearly every other Girl Genius character featured in the game. Meanwhile, Antimony Carver is a 9 point card, despite the fact that she is pretty weak compared to most other GK characters in the game as she is a rather thin teenage girl with little to no mundane combat training or experience using her fire powers in combat. She is very commonly shown to be outmatched when a fight breaks out in the comic.

** An odd case is in an individual ''character's'' Deck. In ''YuGiOh5Ds,'' one of the main characters, Crow, uses Black-Winged Dragon as an ace card and it's repeatedly emphasized that Black-Winged Dragon is the servant of a God and his best card. This is despite the fact that, prior to using Black-Winged Dragon, he often played Blackwing Armor Master, which is considered to be an extremely strong card, while Black-Winged Dragon is a near JunkRare.

* In the DungeonsAndDragons board game, the seventh quest is to recover the legendary Cloak Of Boccob from the shrine of a fallen warrior. The heroes fought through the largest single horde of monsters the game has thrown at them yet...and find an item that usually blocks one damage point, then has a fifty-fifty chance of being discarded every time it's used. It's a less powerful version of the Barkskin Cloak, a starting-level item card that you could randomly find in the first chest in the game.
