* This is one of the defining traits of the VillainProtagonist of ''Literature/TheColonelPyatQuartet'' by Creator/MichaelMoorcock. Pyat ''thinks'' that he's a MasterOfAll - science, art, philosophy, politics - but he actually just knows enough to muddle along (and to fool impressionable people into thinking that he's much better than he really is). A perfect case in point is his grasp of languages, which is extensive enough to let him make himself understood throughout most of Europe, but is also so muddled together and scattershot that that he sounds like a FunnyForeigner in ''every'' language, including the one he was raised in.

** Red Mages after the first game tend to lose effectiveness very quickly once the party outgrows their tiny pool of low-level spells.

* [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Darrell]] in ''OKKOLetsBeHeroes'' suffers from this. Unlike the rest of the [[MechaMooks Box More robots]], he has absolutely no unique powers or specialized skills, instead having a variety of mundane weapons. Normally this would make him a BadassNormal JackOfAllStats, but he lives in a setting where [[EveryoneHasASpecialMove almost everyone has a superpower of some sort]]. Consequently, he's constantly OvershadowedByAwesome during battles and the heroes see him as a total joke.

** Humans in earlier editions also frequently fell into this. They could play any class and lacked a LevelCap, but they had no bonuses or unique abilities whatsoever. Even assuming you weren't playing in one of the many groups that houseruled out [[ScrappyMechanic racial class restrictions and level caps]], there was no reason to play a human unless it was the only possible option, since no matter what, they'd be outclassed by races that possessed actual unique abilities.

* In ‘’{{Ascendancy}}’’, the metroplex structure gives small boosts to population, production, research, and prosperity, but is completely outclassed by other structures dedicated to one of those attributes at the expense of the others. It’s NotcCompletelyUseless, though, because on small planets, where space is more of a concern, they can be life savers.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 5th edition has the default Human race. It gives +1 to all stats (in a game where you rarely [[OneStatToRuleThemAll care about more than three of them]]) and little else. The Variant Human, on the other hand,is a MinMaxersDelight bordering on GameBreaker.

** Kratos, being a CrutchCharacter, never really gets to become a MasterOfNone in the first place. Up until the end of the Journey of Regeneration he keeps track with both Genis' offense spells, Raine's healing, Colette's tanking and Lloyd's melee ability. [[spoiler:He is a better example during the second Aselia ranch mission and his ending, but in his defence he hasn't had much opportunity to develop since he's been gone from the party.]]
** They both have a special ability that lets them insta-cast Level 1 spells while they're doing an aerial combo though. And then there's [[GameBreaker spell canceling]].

** Except that getting a rough outline with guidelines for further study is tremendously useful. Reading wikipedia won't turn you into a doctor, but it might stop you asking for antibiotics for the flu[[note]]By the by, don't ask for antibiotics for the flu. Or the common cold. Or really, if you're sick enough go to the doctor and let ''him/her'' tell you if you need antibiotics. Actually, ask them if you really ''need'' antibiotics or if they're just prescribing them to make it look like they're doing something. That's better for everyone, thanks![[/note]] and let you know whether or not you might like to learn more.

* Microsoft Publisher is this in the eyes of most people - it's supposedly a combination of the assets of Microsoft Word and Microsoft [=PowerPoint=], but when it comes to resumes, it just doesn't stack up next to Word, and for the PP-esque pages pane, that too is also lackluster compared to the original slides pane mechanic of [=PowerPoint=].
** In terms of editing pictures, which is one of Publisher's central tasks, it's considered the worst among them; Word is much simpler and more efficient, and [=PowerPoint=] ironically has more often-used commands in picture editing than Publisher, such as removing backgrounds.
** They are probably missing the point of Publisher. Publisher is more useful for poster design than for picture editing or resume typing.
