* In ''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'', this is one of the base benefits of being WebComic/TheGamer. Whether by using a skill book or some other method, Jaune can instantly gain and begin using skills that for anyone else would take years or decades to grasp.

** Rey in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is able to manage the JediMindTrick, do a Force pull, and wield a lightsaber in short order with no training whatsoever. She performs the mind truck within minutes of discovering she has the ability to use the force.

** ''Film/AntMan'' gives us Scott Lang, who learns how to effectively utilize the Ant-Man suit (both its size-changing mechanism and the device in the helmet that allows him to mentally control swarms of ants) in about a day, while also receiving a crash course in martial arts. It ''is'' established early on that he's a really smart guy who's already in great shape, but learning three skills like that so quickly is a stretch.

** Saito gained this as his power of a Gandalfr familiar. He instantly understands how a given weapon works and how to use it, and also gains a considerable boost in speed, endurance and strength when using a weapon. There is just one condition that must be met: the weapon must have been created for combat. For example, a sword that was created as a decoration won't trigger Saito's powers. Also it can be any weapon, from a simple sword to a fighter plane or artillery cannon.

** Once. The rematch was far more humiliating... and that was while it still was a hand-to-hand fight, before Prometheus pulled a gun and then Batman triggered the logic bomb he'd hidden in Prometheus' helmet software: [[spoiler:he replaces Prometheus's nervous and muscular systems with the physical characteristics of one man: Stephen Hawking.]]

** Medea teaches Glynda Goodwitch some of her magic, and is amazed at how quickly she picks it up.

* Crosses over with DubInducedPlothole. In the former Dutch translation of ''Webcomic/{{Superego}}'', the [[spoiler: shadows were given names, which were given in text even before they were formally named by runes that appeared under the panel]]. From the [[spoiler: formal naming panel on, all characters started referring that specific shadow by that name, and it is unseen how they can read runes all of a sudden. This became especially jarring when Ava, Quin and Rick regrouped. They named their encounters, and one of them called Perry's Shadow "Ravenna" despite not being there when he was named]]. You can find a collection of all these over [[https://i.redd.it/walvxezdh0pz.png here]].

* Downplayed in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. Elma is completely unable to figure out how to work a computer at first, [[MedievalStasis due to the technological level of her world,]] but thanks to Kobayashi's guidance, she manages to become a fairly competent coder not long after. Kobayashi lampshades this by calling dragons "high spec". A minor justification is given later on when it's revealed that the company's programming dialect is modeled after the series magic system (something she'd have at least passing knowledge of).

* ''Film/TheLastSamurai'' has Creator/TomCruise's character, Nathan Algren. He was built up as a quick study at linguistics and warfare, and before being captured by a Samurai group he was already intensely studying their ways. However, in the course of one winter (three months) that he stays with them, he picks up enough Japanese to carry a conversation. He also becomes proficient with the [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] in the same time period, but he was already shown to be a badass fighter with various other weapons. The most {{egregious}} example, though, is that he is given a ''full set of samurai armor'', which he has ''never'' trained with, mere ''hours'' before the final climactic battle, and is instantly proficient in fighting with it.
