* In 1995 Wrestling/LunaVachon was ranked 306 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated's to 500 wrestlers list, which usually only lists males. This doesn't get much comment because that glass ceiling had already been shattered by [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Miss Texas,]] who also ranked higher at 249. From 2008 onward (when they noticed Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s Knockout division) PWI just gave women their own category, which has at least succeeded in keeping people talking.

Added DiffLines:

* Nicole Savoy and Mayu Iwatani debuted at the same time, the former being seen as one of the top prospects o North America, the latter being a tiny model people were skeptical about if they hadn't completely overlooked her in favor of Yuzuki Aikawa. When they matched up four years in at World Wonder Ring STARDOM's USA Tour, Savoy's career was just starting to pickup while Iwatani was debuting in at least her third country and had become the third most important baby {{face}} in what was arguably the top Joshi fed of Japan.
* At the 2015 ''War Of The Worlds'', Kyle O'Reilly and Tetsuya Naito was a match up between two opponents who had seen comparable levels of success. In about one year's time they were scheduled for a rematch at the 2016 ''Global Wars'' and Naito was at the top of the pro wrestling world leading Los Ingobernables de Japón and holding the [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling IWGP]] Heavyweight Title. O'Reilly... wasn't.

Added DiffLines:

* Deliberately averted in ''[[http://ficwad.com/story/213011 Eroninja]]'' where Naruto simply can't do everything despite being stronger than everyone else in his Family/harem. [[WordOfGod The author mentions that he never liked how more characters became irrelevant as the series went on until it was eventually just Naruto and Sasuke who mattered]]. Thus, not only is the overall gap in power smaller, but sometimes someone else is better suited to a given task or mission due to experience, specialty, or personality.

** Krillin, the former {{Trope Namer|s}}, was once considered Goku's rival in the early parts of original ''Manga/DragonBall''[[hottip:* : Krillin has only got the better of Goku once, and that was by tricking him. And including Dragon Ball GT, had only outright beat Goku in a sparring match once in the series' end]], and very much acting as the underdog fighter in many of the battles he took part in. This was overshadowed by the gradual introduction of demons, monsters and aliens in the series that [[TheHero Goku]] fought to much better success, and the introduction of the Saiyans once Goku was revealed to be member of them. The adult Krillin is (by WordOfGod) still one of the most powerful full-blooded humans in the series. Yamcha, during the Buu Saga, admits that Krillin is probably the [[BadassNormal most powerful human alive]]. It's just that compared to godly powerhouses like [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo, Trunks, Goten, and Android 18]], no human can compare. He occasionally lampshades this, bringing up the nature of characters introduced when the series began.

* Deconstructed rather heavily in ThePetGirlOfSakurasou , where multiple characters feel like [[HardWorkHardlyWorks their hard work is meaningless]] in light of the super-talented Mashiro and Misaki. Particularly,[[Spoiler: Rita quite heavily resented Mashiro for her overwhelming talent,despite being a competent artist herself,not helped by her ''own grandfather'' telling her that she will never get anywhere close to Mashiro's level even though she works hard. Similarly, Sorata's game concept is overshadowed by the artwork Mashiro did to support it.]] It's all played for drama.

** Sasuke himself is hit hard by this. [[spoiler: Despite being one of the stronger Ninja in the first half of Part II, he quickly, and we mean ''quickly'' begins being overshadowed by Naruto once Naruto masters [[SuperMode Sage Mode]]. Its only made worse within the War when Sasuke is comparing his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan self to Naruto's Kurama Chakra Mode, not even knowing of Biju Mode. When Naruto brings out Biju Mode, powers up ''the entire army again'' and saves the entire Alliance...Sasuke steams angrily and jealously at how strong Naruto is. And even after getting powers from the Rikudo Sennin (Sasuke even gets the Rinnegan)...Naruto got more of a lion's share again and Sasuke has to designate himself as ''decoy'' against Kaguya since he is unable to even injure her. After his fight with Naruto, this gets inverted as Naruto loses his Sage powers while Sasuke keeps his Rinnegan; in fact, ''Sasuke'' becomes the critical asset in later battles.]]
