* ''Manga/DragonBall'', Goku is usually the first to train at a new training ground. The rest of the heroes make it there next season, but by then Goku has [[SoLastSeason moved on to another one already]]. In sequence the Kame House first, then Korin's Tower, Kami's Lookout, King Kai's Planet, Gravity Chamber. The final two training grounds (Hyberbolic Time Chamber, and Beerus' Planet) Vegeta actually went in first, but Goku followed a little later in the same season, so essentially at the same time.
** He's also the first to reach Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3.
** He was also the one chosen to ascend to [[PhysicalGod Super Saiyan God]] in Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods which Vegeta [[LampshadeHanging called him out on.]] In the follow up movie, Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF [[spoiler: Goku's Super Saiyan form is blue as a result of the god power up. Vegeta also has this same form, ''finally'' putting them on the same level of power.]]

** ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' finally throws Vegeta a bone. While Goku is the first to ascend to Super Saiyan God status, he had to go through a ritual involving borrowing others' power to do so. Vegeta somehow manages to ascend to the same form ''entirely under his own power'', something which Goku was frustrated that he was unable to do.

* KungFuPanda has Po learn the basics of Kung Fu in the first movie, being enough to keep up with the Furious Five, but in the next two he gains more powers with each film (first Inner Peace, then mastering his Chi), putting him far ahead of them in power.

** During his son Gohan's stint as protagonist, Gohan is the first one to achieve Super Saiyan 2 and is the only one to receive a power-up Old Kai, which brought his latent abilities to the surface and made him stronger than the first three Super Saiyan forms.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'': Subverted with Yuya's Pendulum Summoning, where it is a plot point that he will not be the only one to have them.
** Although, Yuya is the only character who gets new cards out of nowhere. A fifth of his deck is turned into Pendulum Monsters, and he gets new versions of his Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, e.g. Rune-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.

them, and he and everyone else are learning new summon techniques throughout the only character who gets new cards out of nowhere. A fifth of his deck is turned into series. Played straight when he starts creating Pendulum Monsters, and he gets new versions of Hybrid monsters that no one else has done yet. Also played straight with his Ace monster, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon. Only one other duelist has shown an alternate form of their Dimension Dragon ([[spoiler:Yugo with Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon, e.g. Rune-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.an evolution of Clear Wing Synchro Dragon]]), while Yuya has three variants of his and many more in the real-life card game that haven't been in the anime yet.

** ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' takes this even further. Cure Heart gets her exclusive SuperMode in the movie, [[spoiler:but her teammates do not get that SuperMode. Instead, Cure Hearts gets ''another'' exclusive SuperMode and defeats the BiggerBad by her own]].

** Not as prevalent in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', but there are cases like [=AbareMax=] from ''Abaranger'' and [=KyoryuRed=] Carnival from ''Kyoryuger''. Other shows like ''Shinkenger, ToQger'' and ''Ninninger'' avert this by having a SuperMode that any team member can use.
