* In ''Videogame/GodOfWarPS4'', it's mentioned at one point that not all of the Giants are ''actually'' gigantic in size. [[spoiler:Atreus aka Loki for example is the same size as any other little boy despite being half-Giant on his mother's side.]]

* Taken to hilarious extremes with minor ''Manga/OnePiece'' character Señor Pink; he's a disgusting slob who somehow has women fawning over him, is an adult man wearing a baby bonnet and sucking on a pacifier, acts like he doesn't care for his crew mates when his actions and words say otherwise, and has the power of the Swim-Swim Fruit, which lets him swim through solid objects, even though the standard Devil Fruit weakness is SuperDrowningSkills.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' combines this with HoistByHisOwnPetard; a demon absorbs ComicBook/MartianManhunter's abilities, including the latter's weakness to fire. Problem is, the demon is [[ManOfKryptonite made of fire]], so the fight ends pretty quickly from there.

** Koishi Komeiji, [[BonusBoss extra stage boss]] of ''Subterranean Animism''. Like her sister, she is a satori, a youkai species that constantly [[{{Telepathy}} reads the minds]] of everyone around them [[MindOverManners out loud]], leading to them being the most despised youkai species in the setting. Koishi solved this problem by permanently closing her mind-reading [[ExtraEyes third eye]] (located on her [[EyesDoNotBelongThere external heart]]) which had the unforeseen side-effect of [[EmptyShell sealing off her heart and mind]], leaving her to operate solely via her subconscious. The result is a mind-reader that cannot read minds; not even her own. In ''Symposium of Post-Mysticism'', Buddhist monk Byakuren Hijiri describes her state as being close to Enlightenment and expresses a strong desire to meet her and recruit her to her temple.

** Cirno regularly refers to herself as the strongest fairy. While this is technically true, it's still not a very impressive feat, seeing as fairies are garden variety {{Mook}}s that the player mows down by the hundreds, and Cirno herself is an early-game boss; in addition, in Easy difficulty her signature attack has an extremely glaring weak-spot.



* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Elixirs are cooked items that have an effect (fireproofing, speed-boost, etc) but no healing properties like food items, made from combining lizards and/or insects with monster parts. 'Hearty' is a modifier that provides full healing and extra hearts. A Hearty Elixir is surprisingly easy to come by.

** In ''Videogame/Persona5'', Morgana swears that he's human and fights to "regain his human form" and his memories to go with it - but he keeps having dreams that imply that he's a shadow of some kind, similar to the above. In the end, it turns out that [[spoiler:he isn't a shadow, but he isn't human either - he is the embodiment of hope that was somehow given a human-like heart and has a nature that is similar to, but not the same as, a shadow.]]
