*** Averted now by the fact that Zigzagged with its Mega Evolution: Mega Pidgeot is a bit more powerful then most Non-Mega Flying types, but now it has a (very powerful) to also compete with other Mega Evolution while the rest of the Normal/Flying birds Pokémon... Which greatly outclass it in that outclassed him in the past doesn't.department (Mega Pidgeot gains No Guard as an ability, which means that all its move never miss, and all moves directed towards it will hit). Pidgeot simply cannot catch a break.

** Anybody in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' who is not an Avenger. At the party early in the movie, Rhodey tells Thor and Tony a story how he (in his War Machine armor) responded to a warlord's threats by dropping one of the warlord's tanks on his front step. Tony and Thor just stand there politely, waiting for the punchline, and Rhodey has to explain that ''was'' the punchline. What is a badass climax to anyone else is just another day at the office for them. Ironically, Hawkeye manages to avert this; despite initially losing to Quicksilver, through CombatPragmatism he's the only Avenger to take on and win against both Maximoff twins!

** Tony's bodyguard Happy Hogan is a fairly competent boxer, but he gets overshadowed by people who are much more skilled than he is. It's especially obvious in ''Film/IronMan2'', when he knocks out a guard and happily announces it to Black Widow, only to find that she's knocked out all the rest.

It's especially obvious in ''Film/IronMan2'', when he knocks out a guard and happily announces it to Black Widow, only to find that she's knocked out all the rest. By [[Film/IronMan3 the following film]], he's traded being Tony's bodyguard for being head of security at Stark Industries, claiming nobody took him seriously as Tony's bodyguard.



** In Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar, despite being trained agents, Sharon Carter and Black Widow aren't at the level of a super-soldier.

Perhaps to avoid calling too much attention to this, Sharon Carter's fight scene happens while the higher-powered Tony Stark, Black Panther, etc, are temporarily unable to use their equipment, and Black Widow is unseen for most of the supers-vs-supers airport fight until a critical moment at the end.

* ''{{Film/Elf}}'': Buddy is a human raised by Santa's elves and living at the North Pole making toys like them. Despite being hyper-competent by human standards, such as assembling 85 Etch-a-Sketches in a single day, the elves outpace him and have already made 950 more. After he migrates to New York to move in with his human family, his seemingly lackluster skills then stand out, with folks being amazed by him renovating a mall in a single night or building and throwing snowballs with machine gun firing speed and accuracy.

** Hawkeye himself suffers from this trope worse than Black Widow. While the MCU is full of [[BadassNormal characters lacking superpowers]], Hawkeye is [[AdaptationalWimp much weaker than his comics incarnation]], doesn't have as many awesome moments as his fellow SHIELD Agents, and gets constantly injured. It didn't help that he was excluded from more [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD grounded]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier installments]] that could've helped show off his skills and talents. Subsequently, many popular commentators like WebVideo/ScreenJunkies, WebVideo/CinemaSins, and Website/{{Cracked}} have ridiculed him as [[ButtMonkey the most useless Avenger]]. Jeremy Renner even lampshades this by singing a parody of "Thinking Out Loud" as Hawkeye, lamenting on being in this status while pointing out he 'can do so much more than just archery'. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ27iS1mkuo Just check out the video!]]

* One of the outcomes of PowerCreep whenever it is applied to any game. What was once dominant can be knocked down into obscurity because the newest additions invoke this trope. Case-in-point, the famed Blue-Eyes White Dragon from YuGiOh. Once known as a nigh-unbeatable powerhouse, the shift in power and pacing of the game has changed such that it is not unusual to see a Deck field out 2 or more monsters of its strength in a single turn with beneficial effects to boot. It took some explicit support (involving cards that would also be on par with the game's own Power Creep, mind you) to bring Blue-Eyes back up to speed.
