* ''The Sanctuary Telepath'': Janine thought her Source Blood-given abilities were the standard between telepaths. Ranna explains to her that what she can do even in Hollow Earth counts as ''terrific''.

* ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'': The Commander asks why Ganondorf doesn't stop Link by stealing all the keys Link uses to get through the dungeons. Ganondorf says that wouldn't work, since everyone knows how to pick locks. The Commander points out that while everyone from a village of thieves knows how to pick locks, the kid who is risking his life to find keys probably doesn't.

** Likewise, changing one's power level is a common, basic ability on Earth and Namek that, again, even the weakest members of the cast are capable of. However, off world this ability is completely unheard of outside transformations like Zarbon and Freeza's, which allows the heroes to hide from them on Namek or ambush an enemy by powering up. Vegeta manages to ambush and kill off Cui and Dodora using this, as they don't realize he's now strong enough to curbstomp them until it's too late.

** Part of why Hagrid's lessons in Care of Magical Creatures are so widely dreaded is that he simply doesn't get his ability to deal with horrible dangerous monsters like dragons and giant spiders and Blast-Ended Skrewts (ten-foot-long armored bloodsucking manticore and fire crab hybrid with stingers) comes partly from his half-giant resilience and strength. Similarly, he's certain his half-brother (and full-blooded, if stunted, guant) Grawp can be taught to handle himself in regular society and asks Harry and Hermione to help, convinced they'll say yes.

* This is a dialog option in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' when the Greybeards praise you for learning Words of Power so quickly. If you choose it, they will inform you that it takes many years of training for a non-dragonborn to learn a single Word of Power.

** On Earth, sensing ki is a ''basic'' ability that even the absolute weakest Z-Fighter is capable of by the time the Saiyans arrived. Despite this, off world, this is apparently an extremely rare ability, and ''no one'' in Frieza's entire army is capable of it outside of using a scouter. The heroes take this so much for granted that it's halfway through his fight with Final Form Frieza before Goku ''realizes'' that Frieza can't do it, much to his surprise.

* In "The Prime Mover", an episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', Buddy Ebsen plays Jimbo, a man with telekenetic powers who explains that when he was young he believed everyone had them. He only stopped using his when he found out that wasn't so, since he'd done a few things that had gotten him in trouble.

* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "DNA", Kryten is turned human and has trouble adjusting. He's surprised to learn that human nipples can't pick up radio signals and that the only way for a human to zoom in on an object is to move their head closer to it.

** For example, when they fail to read any 'hints' that other people make indicating they are annoyed or angry, that person may lash out. An aspie will often think that this 'surprise lash-out' was meant as a deliberate KickTheDog.
