* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Shin weaponizes this sort of behavior, seemingly accidentally dodging everybody's attacks while inflicting damage through perceived incredible clumsiness, attributing his outcomes to amazing luck. He makes it to the last rounds of the World Martial Arts Tournament and defeats Yamcha but is then taken out in the semifinals by Piccolo, after breaking his façade by using a DangerousForbiddenTechnique--he entered the competition specifically to stop Piccolo because he knew Piccolo was a threat. [[spoiler:Shin is actually the deity Kami possessing an ordinary businessman as a disguise and is strong enough to not have to take any of his opponents seriously until Piccolo.]]
