* In ''VideoGame/KingArthurTheRolePlayingWargame'', you are King Arthur and start with the Excalibur (supposedly the greatest magic item in the game). However the Excalibur is never used in combat, instead its power is to bless a place of arcane power so that you can create a seat of government on that site...and there's less than a handful of these sites.

** Siegfried, a legendary dragonslayer, has a Noble Phantasm and third skill that would indicate that he's supposed to be used to slay dragons like the historical figure he's based on. The problem, however, is that the majority of dragons in ''Grand Order'' are Rider-Class, which are weak against Assassin-class Servants, and Siegfried is a Saber-Class, who not only are strong against Lancer-Class, but aren't even part of the same triangle - this resulted in many players using Sasaki Kojiro to clear Orleans, which was meant to be Siegfried's time to shine. However, he does ''incredibly'' well against Lancer-class enemies who have the Dragon attribute, a fair number of whom (i.e., both versions of Lancer Artoria, Elizabeth Bathory) are bosses. Also, if paired with St. Georgios, whose NP can give an enemy the Dragon Trait for a few turns, he's a lot less situational than on his own.
** Boudica is just as bad if not worse than Siegfried - while she's set up to be a tank, her first skill increases her attack against enemies with the Roman attribute; however, you'll only find said enemies in the Septem interlude, and the majority of them are part of the three Knight classes (Saber, Archer, Lancer), which Boudica being a Rider class servant, part of the four Cavalry classes. Even worse, unlike Siegfried, her Noble Phantasm is a ''defensive'' one, and her attack stat is very poor without her first skill.

However, it is worth noting that against Swimsuit Nero, Caligua, or Spartacus, she's terrifying.
** Although Mysterious Heroine X is built as an Anti-Anti-Saber, her Noble Phantasm actually has a higher damage multiplier against Saber-class servants than the Archer Class (who are super effective against Sabers as a part of the game's TacticalRockPaperScissors). However, the difference is minimal (225% vs 200%), and as a Berserker, she lacks the defensive advantage Archers have against Sabers.

* For trading card games in general, especially those that allow a sideboard, there are cards known as "silver bullets" or "techs", which is quite powerful against a few decks but has limited use in other matchups. Popular techs are brought out to counter a tournament-dominant deck, or to cover the deck's glaring weakness whenever its counter is expected.

** Played straight with [[HealingShiv Tenseiga]]. Tenseiga is completely equal in strength to Tessaiga, but its trigger is compassion for all living things, even an enemy. The catch is that it is useless against living beings. Its reputation is to bring the dead back to life, which means cutting the pallbearers of the afterlife that ferry away the soul, restoring the soul to the body and therefore the life. It also has the power to cleanse the soul of the already dead, thus enabling a spirit trapped in purgatory-type hells to pass on peacefully. OutSideTheBoxTactic ends up revealing that Tenseiga is the only weapon capable of killing spirits or any type of being that is MadeOfAir. The sword is, in fact, hugely important to the plot but in a very specific way that's in keeping with the sword's limitations.
