* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', the heroes in one arc get sent to the Synchro Dimension, which greatly resembles ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' where people duel on motorcycles. Despite never riding motorcycles before, the heroes adapt pretty quickly. Yuzu manages to jump her bike and perform an barrel roll, and [[ButtMonkey Sawatori]] even beats Yugo in a brief race.

** Similar to Saito from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' below, from the prequel ''LightNovel/FateZero'' comes Servant Berserker ([[spoiler:Lancelot]]) who, thanks to the skill Knight of Honor, can turn ''anything even remotely usable as a weapon as his Noble Phantasm'' and use them to their fullest extent, even better than Shirou and his Projection magic. [[spoiler: This ability brings to mind one of the tales with Lancelot winning a duel armed with only a twig of wood.]] Combined with his "Eternal Arms Mastership" he turns out to be a serious combatant who only loses due to a sudden loss of mana supply -- ''and all this in spite of being insane the whole time''. He once decided to use a ''military jet'' as his Noble Phantasm. No, really.

* {{Taskmaster}}, in the MarvelUniverse, can instantly learn how to do any physical skill or martial arts maneuver his body is physiologically capable of surviving simply by watching anyone else do it once, either live or via recorded media. {{Handwave}}d away by explicitly giving him the superpower of "photographic reflexes," or the ability to instantly learn by watching. His most recent mini-series also gave him the more conventional form of photographic memory in addition to his superpower, further enhancing his rapid learning abilities. He also has AwesomenessByAnalysis in that he understands what he learns so thoroughly that he can ''teach other people how to do it''.

** It took both Yoruichi and Soifon years to master Shunkou. However, Yoruichi only recently taught Yūshir&#333 Shunkou, so she's startled to see he's mastered it so quickly.

** [[AllInTheManual The back stories]] of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' tell that Union AcePilot [[CharClone Graham Aker]] is also this: When he was test-piloting the Union Flag (then in its initial testing stages), he managed to make it transform at high speeds, after having read the instructions ''once''. Thus, the maneuver itself garnered the nickname "Graham Special" thanks to him.

* Averted in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''. After FallingIntoTheCockpit, the young hotshot pilot prodigy proceeds to fall over repeatedly and cause extensive property damage. A crash course by a pilot who's actually qualified in operating robots keeps him from bumping into things, but only after signing up for the army and undergoing combat training does he become competent.
** Similarly in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Shinji gets browbeaten into the cockpit of Unit-01 and sent against the MonsterOfTheWeek... and promptly falls on his face before getting beaten like a red-haired stepchild until the 'mech' takes over.

** Played with in ''Anime/MacrossDelta''. The main character already has plenty of experience piloting civilian mecha, so he's able to do just fine with the TransformingMecha he hijacked when it's in humanoid mode. However, he has ''zero'' experience at piloting ''aircraft'', so he ends up being shot down almost the instant he transforms his ride into jet fighter mode.
