* Vulture of ''Literature/ShamanBlues'' - he's impossibly graceful in the air, but his manner on the ground is reminescent of a duck with sea sickness.

* ''TheSecretOfNimh'' has Jeremy the Crow. Awkward on land to the point of being a [[TheDitz ditzy]] [[TheKlutz Klutz]], but in the air he's a flying ace.

* A more metaphorical example in ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' with Allyn Magwair. For a long time, he's considered to be the most useless of the four villains, being an awful politician, naval commander and socialite, but when land war starts, he suddenly turns out to be one of Safehold's most skilled generals.

to:

* In ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', Dr. Simon Tam is often portrayed as a FishOutOfWater, a Core-born fugitive trying to get by on the Rim with the rest of the crew of Serenity. But in the episode "Ariel", where he has to infiltrate a Core hospital to find out what was done to his sister River, it is obvious that he is in his element -- not only does he blend in seamlessly, but he even takes over an operation and saves a patient's life

* Film/IronMan is graceful and agile while flying through the air, but looks pretty awkward trying to run down an airplane ramp or even walk down a set of stairs.

* Vicar Allayn Maigwair, Captain General of ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'s'' [[CorruptChurch Church of God Awaiting]] is generally regarded as not very bright and near-useless in the political maneuvering that takes up most of the Church's actions in the first three or four books of the series. Once the Church begins active military operations, Maigwair proves himself a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass as his ideas and strategies manage to catch the protagonists (and their near-omniscient spying capability) completely flat-footed and comes ''very'' close to conquering the Republic of Siddarmark.
