* [[DefiedTrope Defied]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''. Fate makes it clear that the trainees are not expected to be aces like Nanoha, Fate, and the Volkenritter; they're being trained as "[[TitleDrop strikers]]," meaning that they're learning to be effective soldiers and team players. None of the second generation ever make it to S+ rank (the rank of Nanoha, Fate, and Signum); Teana Lanster would later achieve S-rank, but that's still a half-step below her mentor, Nanoha.

** Vivio Takamachi is still up in the air on this one. It's been shown that she has more raw potential than anyone else in the series, but unlike her mothers, doesn't train nearly as hard, preferring to be a normal little girl instead of a [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]]. She has one of the most versatile combat styles in the series, but she's clearly not as strong as her mothers were at her age (though she can increase her power by aging herself up). The jury's out on whether she'll catch up.

* Creator/JamesHerriot noted with a mixture of pride and chagrin that when one of his children qualified as a vet, the general opinion among farmers whose animals had been tended by both was that "young Herriot was a hell of an improvement on the old man".

** However, ''Superior Spider-Man'' isn't the first arc to do this, but Kraven tries it in ''ComicBook/KravensLastHunt'' after he drugs Spidey and buries him alive.

** Zig-zagged with the current cycle and their {{Precursors}}. In many ways, the current galactic civilization is highly less-advanced. In others, however, they have major advantages. This generation (thanks largely to Shepard) is the one that finally completes [[spoiler:the Crucible.]]

*** Speaking of the [[spoiler: Protheans, one of them has survived into the current cycle, and can succeed where his race failed.]]
