* Another ComicBoox/XMen example, and one of the most infamous: In Wolverine #75, Rogue is being sucked out of an airplane and screams at Gambit to help her. Except Rogue can fly. Regularly pointed out as a glaring example of {{Chickification}} of Rogue's character.

** There's a scene in the ''Lord Slug'' movie where Piccolo, who is being held in the grasp of a giant enemy, is desperately reaching out to Goku so that he can give him his energy. Piccolo completely forgets that he can stretch his arms to impossible lengths, not to mention become a giant himself.

* In ''[[VideoGame/PaperMario64 Paper Mario]]'', Jr. Troopa follows Mario from Toad Town to Lavalava Island by swimming entire way, while Mario rides on the back of a whale to get there. Jr. Troopa doesn't reach the island until Mario sets out on a return trip to Toad Town, in which case Jr. Troopa then proceeds to ''swim all the way back to Toad Town''. Once Jr. Troopa returns to Toad Town, he forces Mario to battle him. However, having tired himself out from so much swimming, Jr. Troopa starts the battle with only half of his [[Main/HitPoints Heart Points]]. During the battle, Jr. Troopa shows off his newfound ability to conjure up a set of wings for himself. After being defeated, Jr. Troopa will lament as to why even bothered with swimming after Mario, when he had the ability to fly all along.

* Often played straight in the various ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' works regarding The Riddler's riddles which various characters attempt to actually ''solve'' instead of just looking them up on the internet. This is clearly [[TheArtifact a throwback]] to older times when answers to such things weren't so readily accessible (as opposed to today where it's uncommon for a regular person to not have a cell phone with mobile data, let alone ''Batman''). This was actually made fun of in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' when Amanda Waller "solves" a riddle by just ''tapping into a search engine'':

[[note]]Of course, some writers who ''really'' want to go the extra mile will ''create'' new riddles with custom-made answers. Or just make it so the answers are obvious, but how they relate to his next crime isn't.[[/note]] This was actually made fun of in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' when Amanda Waller "solves" a riddle by just ''tapping into a search engine'':

* PlayedForLaughs in ''SonOfTheSannin'': during the Chunin Exams finals, Hinata ends up in the stadium's hospital wing after her fight, and laments that she won't be able to see Naruto's final match. Her mother quickly reminds her that she can use her Byakugan to do just that, even remarking that she forgot about it because "being lovesick messes with one's head".

** From the "Super" half of ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', the rangers gain an entirely new set of powers at the start of the season. The problem, however, is that the rangers still have their regular Megaforce powers - it would be one thing if they established that the new villains were stronger than the Megaforce powers, hence the need to stay with the Super Megaforce power, or if the Megaforce powers had been ''destroyed'' like in ''Mighty Morphin'' or at the end of the aforementioned ''Turbo'', but they don't even bother doing that. This is largely due to the decision to adapt both ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' and ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', and all footage from the former hadn't been used up.

** Krillin doesn't use his [[DeadlyDisc Kienzan]] as often as his should, despite it being one of the most broken abilities in the franchise. It is one of the most powerful attacks that doesn't take several seconds/minutes to charge, and one good hit from it would've killed Nappa, Vegeta, likely even Freeza.[[note]]Krillin did use it once against Nappa, but did absolutely nothing when it connected with the back of his neck, indicating that large power differences negate its deadlines. Though it does manage to cut off Frieza's tail, and is later used by Goku against Buu.[[/note]] The big problem with this attack, that it is slow and can be easily dodged if someone sees it coming. This could be gotten around if the characters realize that they can use the Solar Flare to blind their enemies before using the Kienzan to cut them to pieces.
