* In ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'', Wonder Woman and Aquaman's strength varied. Sometimes, they were depicted as only as strong as ordinary people and could be restrained by mooks or ropes. Sometimes, they were correctly depicted as having SuperStrength.

* Villainous example in ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'': Megatron's Gun form is powerful, but usually not enough to OHKO an Autobot. In this movie, however, not only is his gun-form powerful enough to kill Brawn and Ironhide, but ''normal'' lasers are enough to kill Prowl and Ratchet and mortally wound Optimus Prime himself!

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': The skill and power of the Jedi tends to vary greatly from episode to episode. In some episodes they'll be literal [[OneManArmy One Man Armies]] who effortlessly plow through dozens of battle droids and win entire battles singlehandedly, in others, they'll struggle to beat a single BadassNormal who may not even be all that {{badass}}. Exactly how strong the characters were in relation to each other was also very inconsistent, for example, in "Revenge" Obi-Wan teams up with [[spoiler: Ventress]] to fight Savage Oppress and [[spoiler: Darth Maul]], and Obi-Wan says they're outmatched. In the very next episode, Obi-Wan fights the two again, ''by himself'', and beats them handily, wounding Oppress and force the pair to flee.

** Justified in te measure of exorcist's strength depend on their synchronization with their empathetic weapon. The more their understand their innocence the powerful they get. As a consequence they can have a sudden power up wh pushed nearly to death and by experimenting their weapon on the battlefield.

** In episode 746, [[spoiler:Iris' Axew, a mon in its first stage with a spotty at best record]], managed to somehow put up something resembling a fight against [[MemeticBadass Cynthia's Garchomp]] a mon that beat four of Paul's team with one hit each.

** The actual competence and strength of Pokemon is highly dependant on the plot.

* This trope is actually used to describe the power of ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' characters Gotham and Gotham Girl, introduced in the ''Batman'' storyline "I Am Gotham". The brother-sister duo are given powers by Dr. Hugo Strange that fluctuate depending on who they're facing. This is easily shown in the finale when a FaceHeelTurn Gotham is beaten bloody by Batman, yet when the entire Justice League, whose numbers include two Green Lanterns and the pre-''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' Superman, he tears them apart. The downside of this is that it CastsFromHitPoints, meaning that they're going to die when it's all used up. [[spoiler:Gotham ended up dying earlier as Gotham Girl is forced to put him down.]]

** Vegeta, whose Abridged Series counterpart provides the above quote, says this because he didn't see the above mentioned training (and fusion) that Piccolo went through. However, this quote is hypocritical of him, as this same arc he'd received three power boasts to keep up with, and then beat, Cui, Zarbon, and Jeice, respectively. He later received ''another'', ''deliberately invoked'' power boast by letting Krillin mortally wound him before receiving magical healing, although this didn't exactly succeed in allowing him to keep up with Frieza's final form (although he was closer than any of the others were, save for Goku).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'': Two-Legs Joe suffers really badly from this. He's been shown to be able to create tornadoes and earthquakes, destroy entire cities in his rampages, create and destroy black holes, and control the motion of celestial bodies just by stomping his feet, yet whenever he's not getting ADayInTheLimelight he's portrayed as helpless against low-level monsters.
