* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': When most characters awaken to their Persona in a cutscene, they tend to incapacitate or kill every nearby Shadow instantly, which they then can't reproduce in following battles. For instance, party member Ann uses an enemy's {{BFS}} when she first awakens, but can only equip whips for the rest of the game. Similarly, GuardianEntity Goemon uses an area of effect freezing attack when Yusuke first awakens, only for Yusuke to lack Mabufu or any other multi-target ice magic in the mini-boss battle that happens seconds later.

** Terry in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' uses Dragon Slash on a Hacksaurus in a cutscene near the middle of the game. He doesn't have this skill when he's recruited much later.

* ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' features ActionCommands somewhat similar to those of ''KingdomHearts'' that allow Galen to finish off bosses with highly dramatic moves that would be quite impossible normally ([=AT-ST=] crushed into a cube, anyone?).

** The post-Advent Children FFVII-games use this style in their cutscenes. Vincent can indulge in {{Roofhopping}}, backflipping, and even jumping 30 feet in the air with ease in ''DirgeOfCerberus''. In gameplay, you're lucky to be able double jump - if you own the US-version. Also, in cutscenes Vincent can take down a helicopter with just a shotgun, but in gameplay it can be a struggle just to take down a group of poorly-trained soldiers. (Though poor controls may have something to do with that.)

* The opening animation of ''{{X-COM}}'' shows X-COM soldiers routing Mutons with your starting rifles and miniguns ''in mid-air'' after jumping out of the Skyranger. [[SelfImposedChallenge Try fighting Mutons with those weapons]] in the actual game, and you'll get your ass kicked!

** ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'': ''Spartan Ops''[='s=] cutscenes feature Palmer and Fireteam Majestic cutting through tons of Elites and Promethean Knights with only a few shots from pistols and basic rifles. Not even in Easy Mode are Knights and Elites that easy to kill in actual gameplay. [[WordOfGod One of the story guys]] even all but admitted that they had exaggerated the killing power of UNSC weapons for RuleOfCool.

** Played with in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians''[='s=] opening cutscene; while the impressive mobility abilities Fireteam Osiris shows off are almost all doable during gameplay, the team cuts through Covenant and Prometheans at a rate that's impossible for the player to do even on Easy (especially when enemy vehicles are involved). Also, Osiris enter the battle by jumping from a dropship high in the sky; good luck surviving a fall anywhere near that high in the actual game.

* In the cutscene leading up to the final battle of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' Trilogy, [[spoiler:343 Guilty Spark]] utterly obliterates Master Chief and the Arbiter with his superpowered beam weapon. Once actual gameplay begins, however, the ensuing fight is one of the easiest and least exciting battles in the history of FPS video games, as [[spoiler:Spark]] just floats in one spot and fires (inaccurately) in your general direction.
** In one of the last cutscenes in ''VideoGame/HaloWars'', [[OneManArmy three Spartans solo about twenty Elites]] by tossing them around like rag dolls, [[GunsAkimbo dual wielding]] [=SMGs=] like John Woo, and performing vaulting flips at least ten or fifteen feet into the air. The sad part is this is about in line with the novels, but nothing like what you're actually allowed to do in the game when you play as one of them.

* In one cutscene in ''Jak3Wastelander'', Jak is able to fly up using his [[TouchedByVorlons Light flight ability]], while in-game (bar cheats) you'll only ever glide down, no matter how hard you flap.

* ''Videogame/TheWitcher'' - Geralt handles a monster spectacularly well in the introduction video. You fight the same monster later in the game and Geralt has none of the coool moves he had in that cutscene.
