* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Jaune Arc is fairly physically strong, but he's still the weakest fighter of the heroes and has no formal training, so he FightsLikeANormal in a WorldOfBadass where everyone fights according to RuleOfCool anime physics. Jaune makes up for it by being TheStrategist.

* This is the reason [[TheEmperor Arcturus Mengsk]] ends up being a BigBadWannabe at best in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' whenever he isn't the main villain of a Terran campaign. By human standards, he qualifies as a MagnificentBastard, being a brilliant politician, a good strategist and the ruler of [[TheEmpire the most powerful Terran faction in the setting]]. Unfortunately for him, he is still a ''human'' villain in a setting involving things like ScaryDogmaticAliens with ridiculously advanced PsychicPowers, a GodOfEvil [[OmnicidalManiac trying to wipe out all life in the Universe]] and an [[OneManArmy insanely powerful]] [[HumanoidAbomination psychic woman]] leading a HordeOfAlienLocusts, so he just can't compare.

** While those 49ers were widely known for their West Coast offense, a huge factor in their success was their defense. The 1984 14-2 Season and subsequent Super Bowl run was not just the work of Joe Montana and the Niners' high-flying #1-ranked offense, but also the product of a stingy, Ronnie Lott-led defense that was ranked #1 in the league. The 1994 title was also a product of a great defense; Eddie [=DeBartolo's=] big spending on defensive players such as Deion Sanders and Rickey Jackson (to supplement studs such as Charles Haley and Merton Hanks) was what turned the Steve Young-led Niners from merely very good to championship-level.

** While those 49ers were widely known for their West Coast offense, a huge factor in their success was their defense. The 1984 14-2 15-1 Season and subsequent Super Bowl run was not just the work of Joe Montana and the Niners' high-flying #1-ranked offense, but also the product of a stingy, Ronnie Lott-led defense that was ranked #1 in the league. The 1994 title was also a product of a great defense; Eddie [=DeBartolo's=] big spending on defensive players such as Deion Sanders and Rickey Jackson (to supplement studs such as Charles Haley and Merton Hanks) was what turned the Steve Young-led Niners from merely very good to championship-level.
** Speaking of said 1984 season, the 49ers played this to their Super Bowl opponent, the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins that year were 14-2 behind Dan Marino's record-smashing passing season, and [[GlassCannon not a whole lot else]]. Still, in the runup to the Super Bowl most believed that the game would at least be a high-scoring shootout. They were right - for one quarter, after which the 49ers' defense clamped down and shut down Marino's offense.

* Stephanie 'Spoiler' Brown is an impressive fighter, athlete, and investigator considering she is a largely self-trained OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent (not to mention [[{{Determinator}} having guts]] [[PluckyGirl enough for three]]). [[OhCrap She lives in Gotham]]. Her (ex)boyfriend is Robin. Her closest female friend is [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Cassandra Cain]]. Suffice it to say that Franchise/{{Batman}}'s efforts at getting her to ditch the costume is not entirely due to being a control freak. Once she officially becomes ComicBook/{{Batgirl|2009}}, though, [[TookALevelInBadass things are a little different.]]

** The third Robin, Tim Drake, wasn't the "first", and wasn't the tearaway Bruce couldn't save. He was just kind of...''there''. More competent than Jason and even improving on Bruce's techniques. Bruce knows all of this, and admits that Tim'll eventually be a better detective than him.

** [[spoiler: Ashi]] is a less extreme example. She's able to put up a fight against Jack, but it's clear she's outmatched. When up against anyone else, she's a literal OneWomanArmy.

*** Carles Busquets was a little-known goalkeeper for Barcelona in TheNineties. His son, Sergio, has earned greater fame as a defensive midfielder ([[NeverLiveItDown and a notorious diver]]); sadly, he's also been overshadowed by his star-studded teammates.

* Poor Hoshikawa Maki from ''Videogame/TokimekiMemorial'' ''4''. She is the dedicated lead heroine, taking up the torch from previous main lead heroines from the game series and overall fulfills all the necessary criterias to be one. But she is easily overlooked or deemed not as memorable as ''Satsuki Yuu'', the deuteragonist who is an {{Expy}} of old time fan-favorite ''Fujisaki Shiori'' as well as Okura Miyako, the game's EnsembleDarkHorse due to her [[spoiler: not just being a secret character to date, but also her route consisting of her personality doing a 180 and being the first {{Yandere}} in the game series]].
