** 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. Simply being able to improve your power level is rare outside of humans, saiyans, nameks and some mutants. Unfortunately, Freeza and his more elite soldiers are the mutants who can increase their ki, though only Ginyu can lower and raise without transformations.

Unfortunately, Freeza Only Captain Ginyu seems to have heard of the ability before (and can do it himself), and therefore he isn't caught off-guard by the fact that Goku is hiding his more elite soldiers are the mutants who can increase their ki, power... though only Ginyu can lower and raise without transformations.he is caught off-guard by just ''how much'' power Goku is hiding.

* In ''FanFic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'', Pinkie's pinkie powers are explained to be the result of a rare form of earth magic that lets her perceive and operate in many more dimensions than the norm.
-->'''Pinkie:'''You mean nopony else can see this stuff? So that's why my friends act all funny when I take my special shortcuts, or I get stuff out of my special hiding places! That's so weird!
-->Luna smiled to herself. It was all a matter of perspective. While Pinkie's antics may have been baffling to her friends, their inability to understand was just as bewildering to her. It would be like living with ponies who couldn't use windows or doors.

** Also often true for honor (or even "just" straight-A) students. They also tend not to grasp how much smarter they are than the average person their age. This also led them to believe that their classmates are being deliberately stupid and/or lazy.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', [[spoiler:Tedd]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1945 thought]] being able to "see" magic itself was something everyone could do if they [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1940 focused their eyes just right]]. The funny thing is he had explicitly told people more than once that he had learned how to identify different spell effects by sight--they just thought he had invented a cool new function for his glasses and was overstating himself a bit.

* ''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.
