** Wrestling/LowKi, Homicide and Wrestling/SamoaJoe vs Special K in Wrestling/RingOfHonor, though the former two did have some flash associated with performers both Ki and Cide were technically sound, well rounded athletes who worked in the ultra stiff promotions of Japan while K were rave kids who...did a lot of flips. Hydro would later become Pure Division technician Wrestling/JayLethal, but always held onto some of his performer traits.



** Later, Wrestling/TheYoungBucks vs The Briscoes, and later still, the Bucks vs reDRagon, an even greater contrast. The Briscoes were twist your arm smash your mouth wrestlers, and although Mark did sometimes dabble into his flippy redneck kung fu, it was tame compared to the heavy use of flips and super kicks the Bucks were known for. reDRagon, premise was Muy Thai fighter Bobby Fish complemented by the mixed martial arts of Kyle O'Reilly, making them as technical as it gets.

** Surprisingly enough, Naruto changes roles in ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last]]'', which comes to view in his final battle with [[BigBad Toneri Otsutsuki]]. Toneri's newly acquired Tenseigan gives him access to a lot of flashy and destructive jutsu, and is more or less evenly matched with Naruto in terms of raw power. On the other thand, while not lacking on the flashy himself, Naruto makes use of the skills he acquired from years of fighting experience along with his strength and determination, and Toneri's newly acquired abilities couldn't match up to the more battle-hardened Naruto. Case in point: Toneri's BFS lazer gets defeated by a fairly basic move [[ArmorPiercingAttack (a chakra imbued fist).]]

* In the world of hobby boardgaming, people often talk about a rough division between "Eurogames" and "Ameritrash." Eurogames tend to be on the Technician side of the equation, emphasizing play mechanics and balance over theme and production; notable games in this category include ''Caylus'', ''Agricola'', ''Le Havre'', and many abstract strategy games. Ameritrash games, which tend to focus on presentation, theme, and character ahead of mechanical concerns, are usually Performers. Think of games like ''Dungeonquest'', ''Talisman'', ''Cosmic Encounter''. The term Ameritrash originally arose to denigrate that style of gaming after the rise of the Eurogame; now it's often used as a general label and not a statement of quality, as many Ameritrash games are really well-made and fun. And, of course, there's a great deal of cross-over between the two categories.

** Lucas' ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe is closer to the performer end of the spectrum compared to the thechnican ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe. The former has a gritty UsedFuture look and both the dark side and the light side of the Force favor instinct over reasons, compared to the rational and utopian ''Star Trek''.

** ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' features Hayate as the performer and Mirage as the technician; their squadron's ace actually criticizes both of them for going too far on their respective ends of the spectrum, since his own piloting is a near-perfect mix of both styles.
