* The races in the upcoming forum game [[http://s15.zetaboards.com/DoTF/forum/3364902/ Raid on Phoenix Hill 2]] are balanced this way. [[HumansByAnyOtherName The Origin]] are the JackOfAllStats, good at everything but a master at nothing. Their strength is in their flexibility. [[OurElvesAreBetter Soulsongs]] are {{Squishy Wizard}}s, being good magically but bad physically. [[BeastMan Wilders]] are {{Mighty Glacier}}s: physically they are extremely strong, but they are slow both physically and mentally. [[{{Robot}} Mechanix]] and [[{{Cyborg}} Androids]] are {{Magically Inept Fighter}}s, in many ways stronger than the "fleshy" races but with little skill in magic. They also have their own unique sets of weaknesses. And [[OurElvesAreBetter Soulblades]] are {{Glass Cannon}}s: they can seriously dish it out, but cannot take it at all. (And yes, these are genericized versions of the races from VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse.)

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' applies this trope to the Riders rather than give the protagonist the usual MultiformBalance. Ex-Aid is a JackOfAllStats for most of his forms, Brave is a MightyGlacier who becomes a MagicKnight as he levels up, Snipe is a GlassCannon across all his forms, Lazer is a FragileSpeedster who becomes a LightningBruiser, Gemn is a StoneWall [[spoiler: until his EnemyMine, where he becomes a SquishyWizard]], [=Para-DX=] uses a StanceSystem with a SquishyWizard and a MightyGlacier [[spoiler: and eventually gets a SuperMode which combines the two]], [[spoiler: Poppy is a LethalJokeCharacter]] and Cronus is a PurposefullyOverpowered MasterOfAll.
