* ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' has a non-supernatural example in the form of most advanced SpaceNavy formation tactics, which has become a lost art by the start of the series proper for the equally mundane reason that getting really good at it takes hundreds of hours of intensive training. As the Alliance-Syndicate Worlds war deteriorated into an increasingly bloody stalemate and casualties mounted, the less time there was to train new officers to replace those who fell in battle and the more abbreviated their training became, a vicious cycle that ultimately led to the two opposing sides launching [[CannonFodder barely-trained crews in poorly-built ships]] into [[AttackAttackAttack wasteful headlong charges]]... Until recently-defrosted HumanPopsicle Captain John Geary, who enlisted in peacetime and had the benefit of a full-length Academy syllabus ''and'' several large-scale fleet exercises, ends up in command of the titular Lost Fleet.

* ''VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}'': Kung Fu Man, the "template" character that comes with the game engine, has the "Kung Fu Palm" attack as this, according to one of his winquotes:
--> "Your moves are too predictable. You want to learn Kung Fu Palm? It's not for novices."

** Hokuto Shinken, a martial art that results in the instant death of the opponent, is known only to Kenshiro, Raoh, Toki and Jagi. This is actually enforced by the practitioners of the style, as Hokuto Shinken is only allowed to have one successor, and those who aren't chosen can either stop using it or made unable to use it (by death, destruction of their arts or memory wipe depending on what the successor decides).

*** In particular, the five ''Meisterhau'' or Master-hews in said style, originally known as the "Secret-hews" of said style. They were designed to regain the initiative in a fight by attacking and defending in one motion. Obviously, they would later become much more widely known and drop the original "Secret" name.

** In ''[[VideoGameTheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', BigBad Alduin has several [[LanguageOfMagic Thu'um]] [[MakeMeWannaShout shouts]] unique to him. SLEN TIID VO, the shout he uses to revive dead dragons, is exclusive to him. His [[DeathFromAbove Meteor Storm]] shout is also one (though "[[ShockAndAwe Storm Call]]" is very similar in function and is obtainable). Another is "VEN MUL RIIK", "Wind Strong Gale", which shrouds an area in thick concealing mist.

* From ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', the [[MeaningfulName Cur-Lee maneuver]], a technique that only the rightful leader of the Foot Clan can master. When Splinter uses it to prove to the clan's ghostly founder that Shredder is a pretender, it proves to be similar to slapstick used by ''Film/TheThreeStooges'', but still [[LethalJokeItem paralyzes Shredder with fright.]]
