Compare with DreamCrushingHandicap, where their lack of ability is due to a handicap, and the MinionWithAnFInEvil (if said minion actually wants to be a bad guy). Also compare the MuggleBornOfMages, who lacks the [[StockSuperpowers "talents"]] to follow in their superpowered parent's footsteps. The GiftedlyBad is oblivious to their lack of aptitude. Very much plays into HardWorkHardlyWorks. A subtrope of the TragicDream. Can lead to becoming TheResenter.

Sometimes overlaps with Type Two of TheAmericanDream, or with JapaneseSpirit, depending on the work.

Contrast with FakeUltimateHero, where the image is there, but the skills are not. A HeroicWannabe is likely to be this trope as well. Is the inverse of TheAce. Contrast the DeafComposer, who definitely ''does'' have talent, but also a handicap that prevents them appreciating their works. Compare and contrast IJustWantToBeSpecial, where the character [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin desires to be something]] ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin to be special]]'' without necessarily being passionate about it.
