* Played with in ''Franchise/MegaMan'', where it's not the titular Blue Bomber's lack of mastery which tends to give him a weaker and less effective version of the robot master's weapons he obtains, but rather that he lacks the specialized bodies of said masters which are used in conjunction with their weapon and instead has to adapt it to his Mega Buster. He instantly ''knows'' how to use said ability, but can't use it to it's full potential due to physical limitations, essentially making him a form of WeakButSkilled in that regard.

** It's further revealed ([[spoiler: and demonstrated, in ''Journey's End'']]) that a TARDIS is designed to be piloted by several Time Lords at once. The Doctor, piloting alone, consequently has trouble.

* Both played straight and averted in the WhateleyUniverse, depending on the type of power. Most Energizers can just blast away with their powers with no training. Telekinetic bricks seem to know how to use their power instinctively, even if they don't know some of their weaknesses or how to control their strength without lots of practice. Wizards usually need lots of classwork to learn spells and focus. Then there's Phase, who nearly died several times while struggling to learn to use his powers, and is still figuring things out months after getting his powers.

*** Hilariously defied in ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'', the source of Turbo's stock footage. The Rangers have to refer to the instruction manuals of their Formula Nova and Ranger Vehicles in ''mid-battle'' to get them to work.

* Inverted in D.gray-man. Most exorcists only have a basic knowledge of innocence and their learn mire about it through battles. Allen didn't even know what innocence is before joining the order and needed Komui to explain it to him. Conversely the scientists of the Black Order study it and have a deep knowledge of its mechanicseven tough there us still a lot to be discovered.
