* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsMagicalMovieNight'' short "Movie Magic", Rainbow Dash and human Twilight Sparkle were the only members of the group who remembered to bring the amulets that allow them to use their powers (SuperSpeed and MindOverMatter respectively). However, they only use them for mundane purposes and don't use them to try to chase down a criminal.

* One Wizard issue had ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} battle ComicBook/{{Thanos}} ending in Darkseid leading Thanos to a Firepit Energy Processing Plant on Apokolips. There, both opponents unleash all their energy, triggering a massive explosion. When the smoke clears, out walks a staggering Darkseid, dragging a defeated Thanos--who is now a pet for his sadistic lackey Desaad. The authors apparently forgot that Thanos' ability to withstand damage is equal to Darkseid's in the very least. He also can create force shields, not to mention it was out of character for Thanos to attack opponents on their home turfs without at least gaining information or sabotaging the fight in his favor before confronting them. Not to mention Thanos has the [[ForgottenPhlebotinum resources]] to attack Apokolips from orbit if he wanted to.

* Crossovers involving [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny 'fictional character x' fights 'fictional character y']] is often this, particularly when the author knows much about one and very little about other character's strengths and weaknesses. The outcome typically has his favorite triumphant in an area where his opponent should be able to match or excel in, resulting in Wallbangers for the audience it. Particularly egregious examples will have one character who is pretty much all powerful losing to the more favored character due to the author not realizing this.

* In ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'', main character Hiyoko Tosaka is repeatedly shown to physically outclass almost every single character, being an absurdly strong and physically fit human surrounded by civilised birds. There are multiple occasions where she's shown to be capable of picking up and even ''throwing'' her schoolmates simply by advantage of size. [[spoiler:But this doesn't help for some reason in Shuu's route, in which a severely physically disabled partridge manages to overpower her and cut her head off without being injured in the process, supposedly because she's paralysed by fear (of a person several times smaller, lighter and weaker than she is). Yes, that's right, Hiyoko manages to ''forget what species she is''.]] "Just throw him out the fucking window!" is practically a meme amongst ''Hatoful Boyfriend'' fans because of how obvious it is as a solution.

* In the story mode of ''VideoGame/Injustice2'', [[spoiler: after Brainiac is defeated both Superman and Batman argue whether or not to kill Brainiac. Superman wants to kill Brainiac because he is too dangerous and he believes he can restore the captured cities himself with Cyborg's help. Batman wants Brainiac alive because he thinks killing him will risk the destruction of more cities, although he neglects to mention how to contain Brainiac. Neither of them mention the possibility of using Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth to force Brainiac to tell them how to take control of the ship and safely release the cities.]]
