Compare WeakButSkilled, and contrast UnskilledButStrong. If two nations do this, it's a LensmanArmsRace. When the situation is about equipment and weapons rather than physical prowess, see BiggerStick. If two {{Rules Lawyer}}s do this, it's MyRuleFuIsStrongerThanYours.

Also TheGreatestStyle, where one form of "kung fu" really is stronger than another.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. All of them.
** And their source material, the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series, in a lot of cases, but especially in ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'', where the entire point of the series was two rival schools of fighting squaring off against each other.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'': In "The Unusual Suspects" (origin story for TheLoneGunmen), Frohike is stumped by a mystery Byers and Modeski brought to him, and they end up on Langly's doorstep. Langly forces Frohike to quote this trope before allowing them in to use his equipment.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. In fact, this is the point of all 3 Dragonball shows (though less so in the beginning of ''Franchise/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallGT'').

* Displaying formidable multitasking skills, the eponymous ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is revealed in the series' ancillary manga to be able to train in the magical equivalent of VR constantly while leading her normal civilian life, apparently to explain her jump from neophyte magical girl to hardened battlemage in the short interval between the show's first two seasons. After the second season, she trains so hard she becomes known as "[[TheAce Ace of Aces]]" and is promoted to Combat Drill Instructor [[ImprobableAge in her early teens.]] In the third season, another character trains herself nearly to the point of exhaustion in an effort to prove herself ([[HardWorkHardlyWorks but doesn't quite succeed]]).

* In a decidedly more [[HermeticMagic magical]] example, ''[[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima Mahou Sensei Negima's]]'' Negi trains constantly for fear of harm coming to his students. He's particularly fond of using [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Evangeline]]'s [[YearInsideHourOutside time-warping villa]] to add extra hours (or rather ''days'') to his day to train more.

* Many characters from ''Manga/HokutoNoKen'' boast that their martial arts are the best or that they are the greatest fighters. They usually are killed by the main character Kenshiro, who proves that the Hokuto Shinken, which has a 2000 years long history, is the strongest martial arts.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gets in on the fun in Magic Duel. Trixie returns with uber-powerful magic and [[CurbStompBattle smears Twilight all over the landscape]] with spells. A good portion of the episode consists of Twilight training with Zecora to become strong enough to fight back.
** [[spoiler:Though they play with the trope a bit. Twilight actually fails to become strong enough, and instead relies on trickery to win.]]
