[[AC:Professional Wrestling]]
* In The Kingdom's [[Wrestling/RingOfHonor home promotion]], Mike Bennett and Matt Taven were {{heel}}s who drew heat by imitating past ROH acts such as Wrestling/CMPunk and the [[Wrestling/MattHardy Hardy]] [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Boyz]]. While the latter was halfway justified in Wrestling/MattHardy being a former member of the group, Wrestling/{{New Japan|ProWrestling}} already had heel PowerStable called Wrestling/BulletClub that not only represented "[[Wrestling/EagleLand American]]" style wrestling but frequently imitated older acts such as the Wrestling/{{n|ewWorldorder}}Wo and Wrestling/DGenerationX. So when New Japan took in The Kingdom, it presented them as baby {{face}}s, and despite being among the most reviled groups of ROH, ''[[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff it worked]]''.

** In short, besides color and hand motions, there's virtually no difference between a Kamehameha, Gallick Gun, Final Flash, or Masenko. The damage they inflict has little to do with the technique itself, instead it's all about how much Ki the user can pour into it.
** The only exception to this rule was when USSJ Trunks was stated to be more powerful than Perfect Cell but too slow to hit him.

it. This is averted somewhat with Krillin's signature move, Destructo Disk, which can slice virtually anything in half, even things that Krillin should generally be too weak to destroy, like parts of Frieza's body. However, it's pretty slow and unwieldy and generally misses unless its target is distracted, thus making it a bit of a MightyGlacier in that world.

* In the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' verse, it has become formulaic for every team to have a telepath, powerhouse, energy blaster, and/or one member who won the SuperpowerLottery.

* Done in the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movies (the comics... not so much). According to the features, some characters were never used for precisely this reason. At least before the character flood in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.

* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' has built up a number of secondary characters over the sequels, one of the most popular being Ali, a girl who is the same species of dinosaur as Littlefoot. However, despite her popularity, she has not shown up more than twice and when a guest character was elevated to main character for the TV show, Chomper was picked instead. Admittedly he was popular in his own right, but the likelihood that the writers did not want two characters of the same species in the main group was probably a factor.

* According to the writers, this is one of the reasons Comicbook/TheWasp had her role cut from ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' (in addition to other factors like her actress being pregnant and Marvel not wanting her debut to be overshadowed by Comicbook/BlackPanther and Comicbook/SpiderMan). It was felt that she'd make Comicbook/AntMan seem kind of redundant, since she can do everything Ant-Man does ''and'' fly and fire {{Hand Blast}}s.

* ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' enforces the trope in universe. While it's absolutely possible to play several Garou of the same Auspice (class) together without the roles overlapping and even get some synergy out of it, packs with all five Auspices are regarded as more balanced and only a pack with all five can gain Phoenix' favor and become the legendary Silver Pack.

* From the [[TheBible Book Of Revelations]], the Four Horsemen were Conquest, War, Famine and Death, in that word. None were explicitly named, however, except Death. In part because Conquest and War overlapped, but also because of the Black Plague, Conquest was replaced with Pestilence.

*** Diana has an unbreakable lasso, which in some versions can be used to compel truth-telling; a bit more than a "whip of truth." (There are also versions in which she is highly fire-resistant, is possibly immortal, has access to perfect regeneration technology, can travel to realms of myth and story, and/or can communicate with birds.)
