** The Biolizard from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' is a prototype of the ultimate life form. Shadow is the perfected ultimate life form. The former is a giant lizard covered with gills that has to hyperventilate through its (equally huge) life-support system frequently in order to survive. The latter is an anthropomorphic hedgehog who doesn't seem to have any form of machine hooked up to him, save for the rocket skates and {{Power Limiter}}s on his wrists, and he can lose those without any shown ill effect. Oh, and Shadow takes on his prototype and wins.

* This is a possibility with the prototype feature in ''SwordOfTheStars II: The Lords of Winter''. The first ship of any new design takes longer to build and requires more resources. It also has a random chance of being either better or worse at certain things than the following ships of the same design, as evidenced by the prototype's nickname.

* It's probably easy to say that a lot of [[IronMan Tony Stark's]] armors fit into this category. His original armor was too bulky, nearly killing him when he was possessed by a voodoo practitioner, and another armor proved to be susceptible to control by Ultron.

His original armor was too bulky, nearly killing him when he was possessed by a voodoo practitioner, and another armor proved to be susceptible to control by Ultron. This is a result of his tendency to immediately attempt to use a new suit in the field as soon as he completes it, without bothering to properly test it first.

* The first version of ''ComicBook/TheTransformersCombinerWars'' Scattershot, who used the limb characters from Optimus Maximus to form Betatron. Hasbro eventually confirmed that Betatron's name was a reference to him being a "beta" version of the original G1 Combiner that Scattershot formed, Computron, and both they and Takara each released full Computron gift sets featuring all of the Technobots that were much better received.

* HMX-12 Multi, the RobotGirl in ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', is an experimental maid robot who is [[{{Dojikko}} not very good with any chores]] given to her. Her successor HMX-13 Serio is superior in every way. (Mostly. Multi is able to express and understand a range of emotions while Serio cannot, which makes her popular with the few students she interacted with.)

* In ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', Nightblood is an intelligent sword, the first of its kind, Awakened with the command "destroy evil." Not only [[BlueAndOrangeMorality does a sword have no idea what evil is]], it drains the user's magic while being wielded, and will eventually kill them if not sheathed. Per WordOfGod, it's actually very similar to a Shardblade from ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''; Shardblades, while a bit weaker, don't require magic to function, and there's no danger of them killing their wielders.
* More directly in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' are the Honorblades. They are the original weapons granted by the Almighty to his Heralds, and provide their wielders with access to two Surges (sets of powers, like gravity control or healing) each. However, while the Blade itself does not require Stormlight to function, the Surges need far more than what a natural Surgebinder would use. Furthermore, since [[spoiler:Shardblades are the physical forms of [[BondCreature bonded spren]] while Honorblades are just dumb objects]], they do not have the same behavioral checks as normal Surgebinders. If a Windrunner stops protecting people, he loses his powers. If someone wielding the Windrunner Honorblade assassinates hundreds of people, the only thing that will hurt is his own conscience.

* Proto Man/Blues DRN-00, Mega Man's "older brother" in the ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' is certainly a badass in his own right, but all what prevents him from him to be a proper SuperPrototype, is his limited atomic power reactor given by Dr. Albert W. Wily and a defect his energy system later acquired according to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agxbVG64mSo Blues' Solo Ending]] from ''Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters''. He was originally equipped with a flawed Solar Power Reactor, which Dr. Thomas Light developed and tried to fix. However because Blues was developed as a truly independent robot with a ''Strong Sense Of Independence'', he did ran away from Light Labs. The reason why Blues did this, was because he feared that fixing his solar power reactor would erase his individuality. Eventually, the flawed Solar Power reactor stopped to work and Blues in turn ceased to function. It was then that Dr. Albert W. Wily found him and tried to fix him, by switching his Solar Power Reactor with a early, but limited version of the atomic power reactors, which all Wilybots would later use. Besides giving Blues a new power Reactor, he was outfitted with combat capabilities and his trademark visor along with his shield. However to battle brings Blues' atomic power reactor at its limits and going above by overuse will make him to a living time bomb, as one well placed shoot can cause him to blow up and annihilates the entire environment around him. The defect his energy system later acquired causes him pain and if the defect is left unchecked, [[YourDaysAreNumbered there is always the chance, that his body will break down with the result of his death]]. Since he has ''Strong Sense Of Independence'', he is uncooperative to let himself to be repaired by Dr. Light, even if it means his death. In games where Proto Man's playable he's typically a GlassCannon due the defect mentioned above.

*** However, an armor-piercing missile can't, well, pierce armor unless it's had enough time to get up some speed, so [[RealityEnsues it may have been Rhodey's fault for shooting it too close to the target]].

** The [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]] is a SuperPrototype designed for one of the most powerful Newtypes of the Gryps Conflict. The flaw is in the latter area; pilots like Roux Louka without the SuperReflexes of the top-level Newtype pilots are shown having trouble keeping up with the suit's speed and transformation systems.
