** This has spread to many other shooters, including ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''.
** In some shooters you may not be able to punch, or wack stuff with your gun, but that doesn't mean the A.I. can't. Such is the case in some ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' games and ''VideoGame/NoOneLivesForever 2''.
*** Averted in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' to some extent, as players can now do rolls and use holograms and jetpacks, all of which was previously only available to AIs (and a boss, in the hologram case) in other games. However dual-wielding becomes unavailable again while enemy Elites seem to have no trouble doing so and often melee while dual-wielding by means of a backwards kick.
*** The trope still stands proud during ''Reach''[='s=] campaign, where the only way to evade is with armor abilities, but it doesn't spawn during it. May count during ''Reach''[='s=] multiplayer mode Invasion, though it's the opposite team that is limited to the Evade ability.
* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'':
** AI-controlled [[TankGoodness Wraiths]] can use two plasma cannons on the hull in addition to the main plasma mortar. The player can't.
** Inverted with Banshees-- A human player can use a fuel-rod cannon as a secondary attack. The AI can't. This was not available in online multiplayer.
** Ballistic trajectories + AIs not specifically designed to handle ballistic trajectories = bad combination. They probably disabled it so that it wasn't a GameBreaker in situations where you have to shoot Banshees down on foot, since it's pretty much a OneHitKill on just about anything.
** Similarly with the Shadow APC. The covenant can drive them while you can't.
** If we want to go down this route, also applies to the Banshees after the crash landing on the ring at the start of the first game, if you manage to shoot one down in good enough condition to fly by using the pistol.

** The Kanto Classic online competition will offer a Dragonite as a participation prize. Said Dragonite is an exact copy of Lance's, and even comes complete with Barrier, making this the first time in ''20 years'' of ''Pokémon'' that the infamous combination [[AscendedMeme will finally be legal]].

** [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 The 2011 game]] has an example: when controlled by the A.I., Shang Tsung can transform into your fighter and two other random kombatants at will. When controlled by the player, Shang Tsung can only transform into his opponent '''after''' using his Soul Steal move on them. Back in the day, when half the cast was PaletteSwap versions of each other, he could turn into anyone, but advancing technology has its downside.

* In ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture'', the story mode NPC-only version of Vanilla Ice uses unique special and super moves, causing much more damage, although they are more predictable.

** He gets Judgement on the player side in the later non Gamecube versions of the game, meaning all moves the boss version has can also be used by the player. However boss Zelos has access to all possible moves, both Strike and Technical, which isn't possible for the player as you can only have one or the other.

* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' games, the Krogan are said to possess backup vital organs (in some cases, more than one backup); thus, when a Krogan is killed in a way that leaves his body intact, he merely falls down for a few seconds, then gets back up after regaining about half his health. In ''[=ME1=]'' and ''2'', Shepard can recruit a Krogan into his/her party, but in both games, said Krogan lacks this regenerative ability. Possibly justified because, assuming Shepard survives the battle, his/her fallen allies (Krogan or otherwise) will get back up anyway after it's over, albeit with a health level closer to 25% than 50%.
** Note that the Krogan character that can be recruited into the party has continual health regeneration, which is something that enemy krogan lacked in ''[=ME1=]''. The Krogan regeneration power was actually pretty similar to the effects of Shepard using a Medi-Gel item, except that it only applied to a single enemy instead of the entire party like the Medi-Gel power.

** The Conjurer, [[spoiler:Yulyana]], has both Meteor and Amped Strike, which are from two different classes, in addition to his own class, which the player can not do, and in fact, no other boss does.
