* ''Film/XMen'': Quicksilver is specifically the GlassCannon variety. In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', he only has to tap the Pentagon guards lightly with his fingers in BulletTime to cause them to knock themselves unconscious. In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', he uses his SuperSpeed against the eponymous villain, and the latter is flying through the air when Quicksilver is punching him. However, Maximoff's great advantage is nullified after [[spoiler:Apocalypse traps his foot into the ground and breaks his leg]]. In the vicious hands of the god-like mutant, Peter is as fragile as a toy.

* In the Naruto fanfic ''Fanfic/SugarPlums'' Ume is this in spades. She is wind natures and the fastest person in her class, created a jutsu that allowed her to [[DoubleJump]], and uses a [[IaijutsuPractioner quick draw sword style]]. She is also physically the smallest member of her class and has abnormally low chakra for a shinobi. Which lends to why she has a quick style because the moment someone turns a fight into a test of stamina she is sure to lose.

* Cruiser tanks. The "cruiser tank" was a British inter-war innovation: an armoured fighting vehicle which would perform the same tasks on land as cruisers at sea, namely scouting, outflanking, harassing the enemy and destroying his logistics. The British went MinMaxing on tanks: they developed [[MightyGlacier heavy, well-armoured but slow]] infantry tanks and fast, light cruiser tanks. Cruiser tanks were light, fast and had excellent range, but they had paper-thin armour and puny QF 2 lb (40 mm) "peashooter" cannon. They were on their own element on open terrain, such as desert, where they could fully employ their mobility, but suffered horribly at close terrain. In 1943 latest the British noticed their doctrine was flawed, and both were eventually replaced by the [[LightningBruiser main battle tank]]. The last cruiser tank, Cromwell, is often considered as the prototype for main battle tank.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Nectaris}}'', the CBX-1 Panther is the fastest land unit in the game. Unfortunately, being motorized infantry doesn't make its attack or defense ratings better than the infantry average, which is rather pathetic. Their most effective use is not in fighting land or air units (though they can do both) but to seize neutral factories before the other side's infantry can capture them.

* The Stryder titan from ''VideoGame/{{Titanfall}}'' has the least health out of the three titans. To compensate, it has the highest move speed and can gain unlimited dashes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' has the Wraith. It has the lowest health and armor of all the monsters. On the other hand, its warp ability allows it excellent horizontal and vertical mobility. On top of that, its Warp Blast can act as an extra warp in emergencies. These factors, combined with its smaller hitbox, make it excellent at hit and run tactics and horrible at direct fights.

** Italian WorldWarII warships were designed in a similar way, sacrificing armor for increased speed. [[GenreSavvy As they had seen what had happened to the British battlecruisers, they were designed for a completely different use]]: cruisers would engage the immediately smaller class of enemy warship of the French fleet, matching their speed to chase them down while using their superior firepower to sink them, while destroyers would use their superior speed to either make hit-and-run attacks on convoys in spite of the escorts or try and torpedo enemy battleships while dodging their counterfire that would have quickly crippled or killed a conventionally armored destroyer anyway ([[GenreSavvy battleships, on the other hand, were well armored, as their main job was still engaging enemy battleships]]). [[CripplingOverspecialization While theorically good enough to deal with the French fleet, the more aggressive, versatile and carried-supported Royal Navy was something the Italian Navy could not face]].

** The German Me-163 Komet, also from [=WW2=], was this. It was a rocket-propelled interceptor aircraft designed to kill bombers and capable of speeds close to the speed of sound. In fact, it was ''too'' fast - often zooming by the slow-moving bombers before the pilots could line up a shot. Its frame was made of wood, and its light construction made it very vulnerable to enemy fire, relying almost totally on its blistering speed for defense. There was even a risk of the plane disintegrating on landing, though it was hardly helped by the fact that its landing gear consisted of a single skid.

And if by any means the 2-part rocket fuel-oxidiser came into contact it exploded immediately, a problem if it mixed anywhere but the rocket nozzle.

* Due to Luffy training her, in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11568253/1/ Supernova]]'' Nami knows the three movement based Rokushiki ([[FlashStep Soru]], [[DoubleJump Geppou]], and [[RagDollPhysics Kami-e]]) well enough that she can take on the likes of Don Krieg and easily dodge every attack. However, the one attack that does land nearly takes her out of the fight due to Krieg's sheer strength.
