Compare IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy, WorthyOpponent, and MookChivalry, which can be motivations for this trope, or LonelyAtTheTop, NoGuyWantsToBeChased, and VictoryIsBoring, which can be caused by this trope. Contrast DudeShesLikeInAComa, AndNowYouMustMarryMe, PsychicAssistedSuicide, and KickThemWhileTheyAreDown, where in similar situations the character is still satisfied by the result even with the lack of opposition.

Supertrope to AboveTheInfluence, ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou, EarnYourHappyEnding, and similar tropes, sister trope to MindOverManners. When someone playing a VideoGame thinks this, it becomes ItsEasySoItSucks.

* This turns out to be Nakadai Mikoto's backstory in ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger''. Due to being [[spoiler: the host for half of the BigBad]], he picked up anything he tried with zero effort. After years of intolerable boredom, he found a TransformationTrinket and became a supervillain just because it seemed fun.

* In ''Literature/{{Foundation}}'', The Mule, a mutant capable of adjusting human emotions, couldn't bring himself to adjust the woman who was the only one who liked him without it.

** The episode "A Fistful of Datas", Worf and his son Alexander are in a Western holodeck program. Playing sheriff, [[CurbStompBattle Worf easily defeats the outlaw Eli Hollander]], but Alexander complains it's much too easy, so he resets the program to a higher difficulty level. As Worf likes a challenging fight, he approves the increased difficulty.

*The skahs (warriors) of Baravada are defined by this trope in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. They would not dream of fighting civilians, for example, because they would be too easy to defeat.
**And in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', we're reminded of this because all the tirin (civilians) have been taken to live elsewhere—taking with them their knowledge of Sage magic, which the four desperately need, but which the skahs wizards never studied much because it made things too easy.

* Morrigan Aensland, from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series, is one of the most powerful characters in Capcom's entire pantheon of fighting game characters. Rather than exercise this power, however, she limits her strength just enough so she can be an even match for her opponents, so that her fights can be fun (which she has a biological drive to do: in the world of ''Darkstalkers'', succubi like Morrigan can literally die of boredom).

* Part of why Harry Potter dislikes Quidditch in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11502532/1/Breath-of-the-Inferno Breath of the Inferno]]'' is because as a dragon animagus, he can sense gold, so even without his SuperSenses he still always knows where the golden Snitch is. That and it's more fun to fly under his own power.
* In ''Fanfic/AlphaAndOmega'', Shinji describes to [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild-Asuka]] that he gave up the power of God after he fixed the world because it was so boring. He could do anything he wanted with ease, which removed the point of doing anything at all.
-->'''Shinji''': Imagine a videogame where nothing can hurt or attack you and you can instantly kill every enemy without even pushing a button. Absolute power doesn't corrupt absolutely; it leaves you absolutely sick of it.

* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': In one match, Maximus kills each of his opponents extremely quickly, leaving his audience totally silent, [[YouBastard which makes him chastise them]] by saying [[MemeticMutation "Are you not entertained?!"]]. Proximo also criticizes Maximus for this, urging him to WinTheCrowd when he fights.
