*** Actually, the situation makes perfect sense. First off, said idiot was being taught by the mentor of said genius who also knew the jutsu and had to learn it, thus he knew the exact steps necessary to achieve it. Secondly, the amount of chakra and determination in the idiot along with very little actual responsibility on his plate (at least at the time of learning said jutsu) allowed him to spend every waking moment training on how to use the jutsu and allowed him to train well into the night. And third, he used the Shadow Clone Jutsu to take a shortcut in completing the jutsu. And even though it became his Part 1 Ultimate Technique and USABLE within a week, he didn't master it. He can't make it with only one hand which tends to telegraph his move, and generally has to go straight ahead with it. It actually shares a lot of similarities with Kakashi's Chidori/Raikiri when he created it. It's a solid jutsu, but nowhere near as potent without the RequiredSecondaryPowers. The Chidori's is the Sharingan, so the user of the Chidori can actually react effectively to any counterattack while moving at high speed toward the target and the Rasengan's is the Flying Thunder God Jutsu to make up for how incomplete the technique is.

* During the Presidential Debates of September-October 2016, UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton displayed instant expertise as one of her debate tactics, expounding reams of detailed policy knowledge in between issuing [[WittyBanter stinging barbs]] to injure rival Creator/DonaldTrump's pride. It worked spectacularly, collapsing Trump's poll numbers while improving hers. Somewhat [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in that she was already reasonably well-versed on many of the subjects covered, while he was completely unfamiliar with most.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', learning a new skill, or upgrading it, or learning a recipe or formula from a trainer is easy; pay him the fee, and he casts a quick spell that teaches your player. Also, you can learn a new recipe or plan from a scroll in a few seconds, assuming you have the right skill.

* The [[http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/2568/ironmanarmoredadventures.html Highdefdigest review]] for ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' likes how in the first episode Tony's still (realistically) getting the hang of the suit, but gripes about how by the second episode he's already an (almost-)InstantExpert at it: "It's unfortunate he's already a pro by the second episode, but it's still nice to have some bit of believability, if even brief."

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': Ray's [[PowerArmor ATOM suit]] is extremely easy to use. While it's fitted perfectly to him, meaning anyone who is too far off his body type can't wear it properly, if they can wear it, they can figure out the rest easily. This causes problems when he lands in feudal Japan and the suit is stolen by a local warlord.
-->'''Sarah:''' How does the Shogun even know how to operate your suit?\\
'''Ray:''' I designed it so that an idiot could use it.\\
'''Mick:''' An idiot ''does''.

** [[spoiler: Cloud Strife]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is able to swordfight, spellcast and perform gymnastics on the level of an elite supersoldier, despite how before gaining his SuperStrength he was only trained to use guns and had little combat aptitude beyond [[TheDeterminator guts]]. This is partially explained as being a combination of FakeMemories and ThePlaceboEffect.

* Celes from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is somehow able to not only pick up the ability to learn opera, but is also able to memorize an entire musical score in the space of an ''afternoon''. She does it well enough to be a convincing facsimile of the famous opera singer she resembles, to boot. But damned if singing her {{Leitmotif}} isn't [[RuleOfCool nifty]].
** She ''does'' only end up singing in Act I, before an unexpected interruption or two; and it would seem that she only had one big aria, a small piece of recitative and a couple dances. There's no reason that, coming from a cultured Empire, she couldn't have learned to act, sing, and dance in her upbringing - Kefka has some serious vocal projection abilities and a flair for the theatrical, and Gestahl proves a capable actor (or at least liar). ''And'' we have no real idea how popular that particular opera is; it may be all the rage in the Empire these days, so she might have prior knowledge of all the music. All that being said, of course, the woman is a ''general'', not some ''opera floozy''.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', when the plot requires that they do, Quistis, Selphie, Irvine and Zell are all able to play any one of eight musical instruments to concert level. They are all students/graduates of an extremely prestigious school, but there was no indication that music was even on the curriculum at all.
