* Goku in ''Manga/DragonBall'', and most of the other protagonists to a lesser extent. Muten-Roshi took almost a century to master the [[{{Kamehamehadoken}} Kamehameha]] wave; Goku picks it up by seeing Roshi do it once. Similarly Goku picks up Tenshinhan's Solar Flare technique simply because Tenshinhan used it twice on him. However, it's averted with learning how to fly, which requires a timeskip.

** In addition, nearly every main KamenRider gets a couple [[MidSeasonUpgrade upgrades]] throughout the course of his show, and rather than take time to figure out how these new weapons and abilities function, will instead launch into a CurbStompBattle to show off just how powerful his [[MerchandiseDriven new toys]] are.

* When the refugees from a high-tech society end up living off the land in Creator/OrsonScottCard's
''Literature/HomecomingSaga'', they need to relearn things like making/using bows and arrows. So they go to their computer god and ask. Unfortunately, transferring thoughts from one mind to another is painfully impossible, so they end up receiving muscle memory instead, as that's just reflex rather than conscious thought.

* Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'' tracks Kvothe's upbringing as he learns a wide variety of skills, from music to magic to swordsmanship. As a prodigy with amazing talent for virtually everything, Kvothe learns skills far faster than normal people, quickly gaining the ability to perform magical, physical and intellectual feats far beyond his age and experience. However, this is all balanced by the fact that, in the short scope of the story, he doesn't have time to reach the heights of most actual experts in these fields, who have studied them for decades and have no small portion of talent themselves.

** {{Subverted}} with Captain Ginyu, who is extremely weak after performing a BodySwitch with Goku, whose greatest fighting potential (at the time) requires the use of the Kaioken technique, which Ginyu does not know. He does begin to get the hang of Goku's body, but just how far it would have gone is unknown.

* ''VagrantStory'' gives us Ashley Riot. Physically, he's an unstoppable powerhouse who gradually "remembers" techniques he once knew, and can use every weapon he finds. With the proper equipment, he can smith his own armor and weapons, even though some of the metals are explicitly described as not being found outside of Lea Monde. But the real kicker is that he can learn magic just by reading a tome. And after killing a Lich, Ashley learns to ''teleport'' by its spirit speaking to him. There is some implication that The Dark is awakening latent talents within Ashley, but that doesn't change the fact that Agent Riot has a steep learning curve.

* ''VagrantStory'' gives us takes this trope and runs with it. Ashley Riot. Physically, he's an unstoppable powerhouse who gradually "remembers" Riot spends most of the game recovering techniques he [[RepressedMemories once knew, and can use every weapon he finds.

But the real kicker is Monde develop some new form of magic power that he they can learn fully control (once they realize what they're doing), and Tomes, the game's approach to spellbooks, are an [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration in-universe type of magical artifact]] that grants the ability to use magic just by reading a tome. And after killing a Lich, Ashley learns to ''teleport'' by them. [[spoiler: Which is the explanation for the rest of it: Lea Monde, with its spirit speaking to him. There bizarre ancient carvings in every wall, is some implication just one gigantic Tome that The Dark teaches the spell to control the Dark. Anyone who spends time there is awakening naturally going to develop their latent magic talents just by being within Ashley, but that doesn't change the fact that Agent Riot has a steep learning curve.its walls.]]
