* Virgil, the first follower you can recruit in ''Videogame/{{Arcanum}}''. He has enough dexterity to reliably hit things in combat, but his relatively low strength means he can't deal damage as quickly as a pure melee/dodge character. He has some skill with lockpicks, but there are other lockpicking characters in the game who will surpass him if they reach a high enough level. His biggest asset to the party is his magic, since he focuses on healing and can be invaluable for keeping your party alive during long dungeon crawls, without having any of the fancier tricks that pure mages who specialize in other colleges can have.

He has some skill with lockpicks, but there are other lockpicking characters in the game who will surpass him him, and unlike those he doesn't develop his prowling skill so he's likely to be discovered if they reach a high enough level.he attempts to pick locks for you.

The Mastermind was perhaps the master of being the Jack of All Stats; while the player would themselves have some useful buffs, debuffs and assorted weapons that could assist a team, the minions could provide firepower, melee abilities, tank, or act as distractions, or a combination of all of the above. Unlike many archetypes that really required a team because they had too few offensive/weak powers to solo, or archetypes that could solo but couldn't provide much support to other players on a team, Masterminds could solo easily while on a team their buffing abilities worked just as well on teammates as it did on their minions. A well built Mastermind could thus tank, blast, melee, and support all at the same time.

* ''Videogame/WorldOfWarships'' in general has the cruiser: destroyers are faster, stealthier, and typically aim and fire their guns faster, but don't have as much firepower and no armour to speak of. Battleships have bigger guns that can obliterate a smaller ship with a single salvo, much tougher armour, but are less maneuverable and are slower to aim and fire. The typical cruiser neatly fits in between, being tougher than a destroyer and carrying heavier guns while being faster and more maneuverable than a battleship.

* Alicia [=DeVries=] from ''Literature/InFuryBorn'' discovers that once she joins [[TheChosenMany the Imperial Cadre]] that the characteristics that made her an exceptional Marine don't make her, for the first time in her life, the best among the exceptional men and women who make up the unit. It eventually becomes noted, however, that while there's AlwaysSomeoneBetter so she's not the best in any one category, she's remarkable for being so good in so many.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' has Lincoln Loud. His 10 sisters will generally be better at everything than he is, from leadership and music to intelligence and creativity. However he is acceptable at all their skills and can perform well at any of these skills when it is necessary.

* ''Franchise/DragonQuest'':
** Although ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' games often make the main character The Jack-Of-All-Stats, the second game instead does this with the Prince of Cannock, the second member of the party. The one you start with, Prince of Midenhall/Lorasia specializes in fighting physically (he is unable to use magic) while the third, Princess of Moonbrooke specializes in magic. The Prince of Cannock fights with a mix of both.

* Naruto notes in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12446167/1/A-Leaf-s-Aimless-Journey A Leaf's Aimless Journey]]'' that while [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender master benders]] can do things with their element that most shinobi never even dream of, shinobi are the only ones (barring the [[MasterOfAll Avatar]]) who can use every element. Combined with their non-elemental techniques and shinobi like Naruto are more versatile than any bender.

* ''Manga/BabySteps'': The main character is skilled enough in all areas in {{Tennis}} so as to be able to [[AwesomenessByAnalysis adapt]] to any opponents style. However, it's pointed out that most characters have to have a few special weapons to capitalize on in higher levels of play. [[spoiler: Eventually he discovers that his is control.]]
