Added DiffLines:

* Film/TooBigToFail is about a financial crisis, and the man who solves the crisis, isn't some low level banker or bureaucrat, but the US Treasury Secretary himself. Hank Paulson's previous job as CEO of a major investment bank is mentioned multiple times in this movie ... just in case you forgot that!!


Added DiffLines:

* All of the captains in the Franchise/StarTrek series count. All of them had to rise up through the ranks and have exemplary records before being given their ship [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine or station]]. Kirk has multiple decorations for valor, Picard [[YouAreInCommandNow fell into command of the Stargazer]] and held onto it for quite some time, Sisko was XO of a ship and principle designer of the ''Defiant'' before commanding DS9, Janeway was an accomplished science officer and Archer was a respected warp test pilot.


Added DiffLines:

* The male protagonist of VideoGame/Fallout4 differs from all the other protagonists of canon games in the Franchise/{{Fallout}} franchise, in that he is already an accomplished soldier and veteran of the Alaska reclamation campaign against the PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny. [[DistaffCounterpart His wife]] - not so much, as she is primarily a lawyer in private practice before the bombs fell. A military or government agency background is only implied due to her skills matching her husband's.

* In ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', the main character Yuri is in the twilight years of his career without too much international success, but he is Japan's top skater and is actually extremely talented when not crippled by his extreme performance anxiety. The other main character, Victor, is also at the end of his career, except he is also the world's number 1 skater.

He's now in the twilight years of his career without too much international success, but he is still Japan's top skater and is actually extremely talented when not crippled by his extreme performance anxiety. The other main character, Victor, is also at the end of his career, except he is also the world's number 1 skater.

Added DiffLines:

* Tatsuya Shiba from ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'' is acknowledged as one of the best magicians of his generations, being an expert in several fields of magic, an accomplished fighter and tactician and several high-ranking students at his school defer to him, if only out of respect. [[spoiler:His most powerful attack has the equivalent strength of a tactial nuke.]]
* Ayato Amagiri from ''LightNovel/TheAsteriskWar'' is already an expert in melee combat, not to mention his natural magical energy is so huge his sister placed as seal on him to prevent his body from tearing itself apart. Very quickly he becomes the best fighter at school; and in the first tournament, he doesn't really become stronger, he just remembers techniques his sister taught him to win the current fight.
* Lux Arcadia from ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' is the legendary Black Hero that once defeated the Arcadia Empire. By definition, that makes him the best warrior of his generation, but [[SecretIdentity he keeps that under wraps]] to prevent political backlash.

** Ephraim of ''FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' also qualifies as he is an experienced soldier who is first seen leading an assault on an enemy fortress with only a handful of men, but is also infamous for his LeeroyJenkins tendencies (he comes out on top, but the people don't particularly like him for it).
