* The Franchise/{{Tales|Series}} games, starting with ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Phantasia]]'' have the main character equip four skills to use in battle among the dozens of techniques they learn. With the Combo Command item, they can use any of these by inputting a series of fighting game-style commands. Some of the games have late-game items that can double the number of attacks you can equip at a time, with the second set being available by holding down a button.

* Immortals in ''LostOdyssey'' can learn ''every skill in the game'' (except enemy-only skills), but can only use a limited number at a time, depending on the amount of "slot seeds" they've used and a few skills that give extra slots. The maximum number of skills the game allows per immortal is 30, but unless you want to end up with a severely unbalanced party due to using all the Slot Seeds on a single immortal, you're most likely to end up with 28 or 29 useable slots per character due to the need to equip skills that increase the number of available slots, although you can still give them up to 3 accessories on top of that.

** The third game by default only lets you map certain skills to LMB, RMB, and 1-4 keys, though this can be disabled in the Options menu. You're still limited to one skill per category.

* [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]] in ''MagicTheGathering''. There are five colors of magic, and each one represents a philosophy or ideology and thus specializes in particular things. While it is possible to run a deck with all five colors, the result is CoolButInefficient, as the colors of mana you have on table will rarely match the color of the spells you have in hand. Until you get used to the {{metagame}}, it's much wiser to run decks of two colors or even one.

* Invoker from ''Dota2'' is an incredibly versatile hero thanks to his ability to combine his standard abilities into new ones, possessing a whopping 11 active skills, surpassing the 4 skills that almost every other hero has. However, he can only store two at a time, and is restricted from invoking new abilities whenever he wants due to cooldown and mana cost. While this restriction diminishes as he gains levels, having and invoking the right spells at the right time and remembering the combination for his spell is key to playing Invoker successfully.

Implementations vary. In some games, the player is forced to more or less permanently forget old skills to learn new ones. In others, the skills are just put away and may be "installed" and "uninstalled" at will, as if they were computer programs.
