* Classic ''{{Traveller}}''. The Jack of All Trades skill allowed a character to use any other skill at level 0, which meant that they would avoid penalties for lack of skill but not gain any bonuses either.

* In ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'', there are playable characters who are an example of this very trope. In the series people can awaken a manifestation of their personality called a Persona, they usually only have 1, and they more commonly fall under the Major Arcana. The protagonists from ''VideoGame/Persona3'', ''VideoGame/Persona4'', and ''VideoGame/Persona5'' specifically are the exception to other Persona users in their respective games as their main Personas are of the Fool Arcana, it has been noted as being the "Jack of all trades" as it grants the users Persona the ability to inherit and learn any skill. The Fool is also the only Major Arcana that has been shown to normally obtain the power of the Wild Card, which allows the user to use many other Personas outside and inside of their Major Arcana (''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' and ''VideoGame/Persona2'' are exceptions as they allow all characters to switch out Personas in battle and ''VideoGame/PersonaQ'''s Wild Card functions differently than the mentioned Persona titles). This makes the protagonist extremely versatile while also being equally as weak, as they also inherit the weakness' or lack thereof of the selected Persona.

Supertrope of RenaissanceMan (where someone is exceptionally good at many things) and MasterOfNone (where someone does poorly at a lot of things). A related trope found in VideoGames and TabletopGames is the JackOfAllStats, who has well-balanced stats, not skills. See also TheRedMage, RenaissanceMan and PowerCopying. Compare the MasterOfAll, who is the best (or among the best) in practically everything. Contrast MinMaxing, TacticalRockPaperScissors, ElementalRockPaperScissors, CripplingOverspecialization, SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining.

* Erza from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is this. Her magic essentially allows her to carry a personal armory around wherever goes. In turn, this allows her to utilize just about every kind of melee weapon and armor there is. While she prefers swordplay, she's also shown herself skilled in [[BladeOnAStick spear combat]], and even [[HammerTime hammer combat]] as well.

to:

** Users of the [[MagicalEye Rinnegan]] are capable of using all elemental jutsu naturally, but Pain goes an extra mile: with his 6 {{remote bod|y}}ies, he can share the view of the bodies' eyes with each other, manipulate gravity in a wide scale, summon gigantic powerful creatures, go all blast-y, absorb any chakra attacks coming at him, read people's minds and take souls, and revive his bodies should any of them die.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes Eratosthenes of Cyrene]] was "a Greek mathametician, geographer, poet, astronomer, and music theorist" from the 3rd century BC. Among other things, he is credited with calculating the circumference of the earth and the angle of Earth's seasonal tilt, as well as developing an algorithm for finding prime numbers (called the Sieve of Eratosthenes). "He was nicknamed Beta, because he was great at many things and tried to get his hands on every bit of information, but never achieved the highest rank in anything, so much so that Strabo accounts Eratosthenes as a mathematician among geographers, and a geographer among mathematicians."
