** The grenade launcher actually has an interesting explanation. Most of the cutscenes for Starcraft were made in Beta phase of the game. The space marine unit was original supposed to have a grenade firing ability with limited ammo ala the Spidermines of the Vultures, but this was removed after being seen as too hard to balance. The result is that all images and cutscenes with space marines clearly show them having the underslug grenade launcher on their rifles, but no such ability. This was one reason the grenade launchers were removed from the rifles in Starcraft 2 instead having bayonets which can be pushed out underneath the barrel. Which were however also removed during the Beta phase again leaving the Marines with a cutscene weapon they can't use in game.

* Based on the complaints above, StarCraft 2 deliberately made a number of cutscenes that averted this.

*** ''[[MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker]]'' further averts this trope by introducing a CQC chaining system that makes the tricks Snake used in that MGS 3 cutscene much easier. Even better, you get an achievement for doing it.

** Mario himself is a huge offender. He effortlessly roots Larry's castle from the ground in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' and kicks it away. In ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time]]'', he [[InASingleBound jumps higher than Luigi]] during cutscenes (when ''SuperPaperMario'' established Luigi's jump height as being about three times as high as Mario's).

* Some characters in ''PunchOut'' are shown doing amazing feats in their intros before the fight, like Piston Hondo outrunning a bullet train or Mr. Sandman who ''punches down a building''. In battle they are tough to beat, but still are on a rather human level. Either that or Little Mac is absurdly strong. Title Defense Bald Bull is shown to take a charging bull to the chest and not fall down, if only barely; he reacts to same way to Little Mac's punches.

* ''[[{{utawarerumono}} Genjimaru]]''. So hard. The first time we see him fighting he drives off [[GiantMecha four Av Kamiw]] single handed. Literally, because he's carrying his granddaughter. Then he roflstomps Karura in a duel and later manages to actually injure [[PhysicalGod Diy.]] When you get to play as him? He's among the weakest characters you can use because his skill sets haven't been trained, so Hakuoro/Karura/Touka etc are hitting quite a bit harder on their first blows than he lands on his entire attack.

* A trailer for FatalFrame II showed Mio running as fast as she could to rescue Mayu -- too bad she doesn't run that fast in-game.
