** The French national rugby union team is renowned for its "French flair" where the players can score tries out of nowhere, compared to England who plays a more pragmatic style. While the French haven't had as much success in the Six (formerly Five) Nations or Rugby World Cup as England have, and also have a losing record against England, they have more wins against New Zealand than every other Northern Hemisphere side put together, and have also reached as many World Cup finals as England have (although unlike England, they failed to win any). It's said that "you never know which France will turn up" for any given match. When French flair was abandoned under coach Phllipe Saint-Andre, it resulted in one of the worst eras of French rugby, picking up a wooden spoon in the 2013 Six Nations and suffering the heaviest ever World Cup knockout stage defeat (13-62) against New Zealand.

* Ash in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11803928/13/Challenger Challenger]]'' serves as a performer to the students' technicians when he fights the top ten students at a Pokemon prep school. Part of why Ash utterly destroys so many of them is because of his unusual battling style that clashes with their theory based training. [[TaughtByExperience The rest is because why they study theory and type match ups, Ash has actually gotten into dozens of battles and learned from each of them]].

** PlayerArchetypes have the "Timmy" type as the performer and the "Spike" type as the technician. Timmies play to use powerful cards, and Spikes play to win. The third archetype, Johnny, [[RedMage splits the difference]]; While Johnny plays to create new and interesting combos and card interactions, though not necessarily to win, ''some'' knowledge of the rules is required to ensure that those crazy ideas actually ''work''.
** Alternatively, one could consider it a spectrum. At the far end of the Technician scale, we have Spike, who bases his decks off of pure tactics, often using predetermined strategies or copying the best in the game in order to make a powerful deck. Next is Johnny, who still focuses on power, but tends to try and experiment to create new combos and new abilities as he does so. Third is Timmy, who doesn't care about technical power but just wants to make [[StuffBlowingUp big stuff happen]].
** In-universe, the blue vs. red conflict is Technician vs. Performer. Blue tends to be icily logical, focused on victory through precision, control, and superior information, usually whittling down an opponent's ability to oppose it; Red is the colour of emotion and impulse, and tends to win with big spectacular displays like hails of thunderbolts, massive fireballs, swarms of goblins or the unleashing of a dragon.

The movie also adds a third element with Eva, who has TheGift like Jodie but also the technical potential of Maureen, but is hampered by her rebellious attitude. [[spoiler: Eva is the only one of the three main girls to find success in the American Ballet Company--Maureen realizes she's destroying herself and quits, Jodie goes to a new company that values her performance skills over her ability to technically conform.]]

** Randy Couture (BadassGrandpa who had to rely on guile and tactics to make up for his age) vs. Chuck Liddell (brawling knockout artist) are a prime example. Couture won the first fight, but the loss forced Liddell to bacome more technical himself, after which he managed to beat Couture twice.
** Two faces of the UFC in the early 2010s: Georges St. Pierre (technically impeccable wrestler) and Anderson Silva (counter striker with some showboating tendencies).
