* In ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'', Shallan Davar is attacked by an assassin and must use her [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblade]] to survive. Problem is, she's seen with it. Shardblades are so rare and powerful that having one is basically the equivalent of having access to nuclear weaponry in terms of social and political weight. Oh, and for a woman to fight is considered about as inappropriate as if she were to have sex in a public square. With someone to whom she is not married.

He could ''probably'' defeat all four opponents by himself if allowed to go full out, but since his powers are considered mythical at best and abominations at worst, he can't do anything obviously superhuman. Worse, his opponents are all wearing [[PoweredArmor Shardplate]] and wielding [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblades]], so he can't fight them at a baseline level and expect to survive. He contents himself with mostly using his passive abilities to dodge with superhuman skill, though at one point he uses his GravityMaster powers to "fall" at several gravities and kick a guy so hard his nigh-indestructible armor explodes. It does break Kaladin's legs, but his HealingFactor brings him up to snuff before anyone notices.

* While it didn't happen in the film, the [[AllInTheManual now-defunct official website]] of ''Film/TheOne'' reveals that [[BigBad Yulaw]] was finally exposed when another agent, who's been suspecting him for months, asks Yulaw to help him carry a closed box up some stairs. Yulaw carries the box without a problem only to find out after the fact that the box was full of heavy weights that couldn't have been lifted by a normal person. The agent confronts Yulaw, but ends up getting thrown down several flights of stairs and becoming paralyzed. Having several black belts doesn't really match up against someone who has that as well as superstrength and superspeed.

* In ''Film/TheManFromUNCLE2015'', superspy Illya Kuryakin has to be reminded that since he's posing as a mild-mannered architect, he can't just show off his advanced fighting skills. It tears him up inside when he and his "fiance" get mugged and he's forced to surrender his stuff without resisting, and he later tries to argue that anybody could have beaten those chumps.
