* 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.

This has proven flawed at least once, when a copy of the manual once fell into a fire in the middle of a battle.

* 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.

* Averted for most of the ComicBook/BlueBeetle legacy. The first one, Dan Garett, got powers from it by saying a magic word (ultimately revealed to be misusing it, and the magic likely damaged its true function). Then Ted Kord came into possession of the scarab but never got it to work, instead borrowing its motif for his costume and gadgets. It was only the third owner, Jaime Reyes, who had it work as intended - but he still hasn't mastered it; the scarab activated because ''it'' chose to, and he still argues with it over what to do at times. (And now, in Rebirth, Dr. Fate reveals that the Scarab is actually magical after all, which implies that [[{{Retcon}} ''Dan'' had been using it correctly and ''Jaime'' had been using it wrong all this time]], so it seems like nobody knows exactly what this thing is or how to use it properly)

* A lot of characters in ''CodeGeass'' seem to be able to pilot [[MiniMecha Knightmare Frames]], despite having [[FallingIntoTheCockpit found themselves using them for the first time]]. Somewhat justified in that Suzaku mentioned having had some military-mandatory training on simulators in the first episode, Lelouch having used the Ganymede to make giant pizzas during previous school festivals, and Kallen having assumedly had some time to practice with that old Glascow. Still, a line from the AbridgedSeries is used as the page quote for FallingIntoTheCockpit...
