*** ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'' is also on its way towards averting this, as [[spoiler: Currently Joe and Mimi with their partners Gomamon and Palmon have currently reached their Mega stages. Previews for later movies hint at the other digimon also achieving the stage]]

** In Power Rangers, the Red Ranger usually has a "Battlizer" or some equivalent power-up that gives him armor and new abilities, and usually the other rangers will not get a similar power. This sort of goes back to the first season, with Tommy giving Jason the Dragon Dagger and power coin, and Jason receiving the gold shield on Tommy's uniform for his own.

** ''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.

** In ''BaldursGate'', it's the Bhaalspawn who gets all the nifty Bhaal-induced powers, whereas NPC party members (including other children of Bhaal) are stuck with the standard abilities (though the other child of Bhaal that still is a Bhaalspawn when she's part of the party actually was ''supposed'' to get nifty Bhaal-induced powers, two-and-a-half games after you got them. It just that the coding for the delay between triggering events is a bit iffy). Then again, some of the NPC party members start out with their own unique non-standard abilities -- for example, Minsc is a Ranger that can berserk, Mazzy is a Fighter with a couple of Paladin-like abilities (thus sidestepping the fact that in 2E, only humans can be Paladins).

* ''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.]]

* 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.
