** Kirito spent 2 years trapped in a virtual reality game. After he escaped, he developed actual sword skills and enhanced reflexes, was almost able to beat his sister in a kendo sparring match (it should be noted that she's a national level competitor), dodging a blow that reportedly had never been successfully blocked by either her coaches or tournament opponents and beat a knife-wielding mad man bare handed.

However, the last case is {{justified}} by the fact said madman was suffering from phantom injuries dealt by Kirito while they were inside ALO minutes ago (particularly a [[EyeScream bad case of depth perception]]). Had [[spoiler:Sugou]] been in tip-top shape and not dealing with a VillainousBreakdown at the time he would have killed Kirito, skills or not.

-->And '''screw''' ''TheLastStarfighter'', because all those hours playing ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' didn't prepare me for this!

Added DiffLines:

* Fittingly, the ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' episode of ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'' is based around how Johnny Cage's experience with fight ''scenes'' should not translate to experience with actual fights, leaving the cast of the show to figure out a scenario where such Johnny could kill undead ninjas, lightning gods and demon sorcerers.

Added DiffLines:

* Christian Weston Chandler of ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' fame thinks playing ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' counts as playing a real, bona-fide electric guitar. He's like the real-life version of Music/MCLars ''Guitar Hero Hero'' (see the ''Music'' section, above).

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has this as the setup. A doctor known to be very good at video games is recruited (reluctantly) by his hospital to becoem a Kamen Rider that beats sentient gaming viruses out of patients with video game-themed gadgets and weaponry. His gaming knowledge put him ahead of his colleagues.

* Subverted to HELL in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' games, especially ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Sons of Liberty]]''. Soldiers are trained with VR simulations, but they aren't "soldiers" until they have combat experience. [[spoiler: Raiden is an aversion: he had previous combat experience as a child. The Genome soldiers and [=PMCs=]... well, they're proof enough the system DOESN'T work.]]

* ''Manga/Btooom'': Seeing that the whole setting is a [[BattleRoyale battle-royale]] inspired by the "Btooom!!" online game, it's no surprise we see lots of characters who aced "Btooom!!" and then came to use their honed skills in the real-life version.

* Subverted in ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead''. Shaun is shown playing a zombie video game with Ed's help early in the film. Later, he grabs a rifle and teams up with Ed to shoot at zombies in the exact same manner... except he misses just about every shot.
