-->''Sometimes I think this thing just plain hates me.''
*** However, in Omniverse, it's {{Flanderized}} to the point that he almost ''never'' gets the alien he wanted. When he finally gets to confront the inventor over the supposedly upgraded version never working as intended, Azmuth tells him that he's just too rough on the controls (apparently, the way he dramatically slams his hand down on it to activate it before a battle is the culprit.)

* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', Asuna suffers from this in her debut episode. She's still a natural fighter, [[ActionGirl and a damn good one at that]], but she's a total novice to [=MMOs=] who thinks [[DamagerHealerTank DPS]] is "some kind of sex thing," worries that she's contracted a disease when a pop-up tells her she's got [[ExperiencePoints "expees,"]] and in a game that is now literally life or death, doesn't even know how to open the interface's menu.

* Charo of ''Webcomic/DameDaffodil'' fame, in her first fight, uses her powers and transforms on instinct. After ''that'', however, she has no idea how to consciously transform back or use her powers. There are ''no'' mentors, ''no'' instruction manuals, and [[GrailInTheGarbage she got the daffodil hairpin for £3 at a regular store]] so she can't just up and ask the seller for advice. Fortunately, a bit of practice helps her overcome these flaws. [[spoiler:This is rather common to all that get a flower accessory.]]

* Player characters in ''TabletopGame/MasksANewGeneration'' are rookie superheroes who tend to have a shaky grasp of their powers; as such, even a successful usage of them tends to be unstable or temporary unless you roll an exceptional success.

** Part of the reason for Renji's loss against Byakuya is that he didn't know how to control his Bankai, enabling Byakuya to disrupt its rhythm and leave him vulnerable. Byakuya claims that mastering bankai takes at least ten years of training. Something that he has, and Renji (who had just achieved bankai ''that day'') lacks. The reason [[SubvertedTrope this didn't apply to Ichigo]] was because (1) his SuperpoweredEvilSide intervened for a while, and (2) although he lacked much control over it, his bankai had more than enough ''raw power'' to compensate.
