* Spandam in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is weaker than an ordinary footsoldier but has a high position in the World Government forces, thus allowing him to influence his underlings in ways to give our heroes just as much trouble as any other villain, if not more. He is also a fairly competent strategist, though a total jerk.

to:

* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Whilst also being in possession of some pretty superhuman abilities, Dracule Mihawk notes during the Summit War Saga that Luffy has the incredibly dangerous ability to turn almost any enemy into an ally, something that he specifically calls 'the most dangerous ability on the seas'.
** The Straw Hat crew in general also seem to have a nearly mythical ability to survive impossible odds, defeat opponents more powerful than themselves, and cause huge embarrassment to the World Government whilst doing so, through determination but also a huge share of luck. Trafalgar Law specifically references this during his fight against Donquixote Doflamingo as the reason why he allied with them: He knows that his dream of taking down Doflamingo is that much more likely with the Straw Hats on their side, as they are a crew who 'make miracles happen'.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/CodexAlera'': In a world where everyone can use elemental spirits called Furies to do pretty much everything, the only human that cannot do that, main character Tavi, runs everyone ragged with his smarts, his out-of-the-box thinking, his charisma and his growing skills. [[spoiler:When he later gets his furies, he begins to apply all of his learning to furycraft things no one thought about.]]
