** Moreover, the XCOM game has a notoriously difficult, intricate and insanely long mod called Long War (taking hundreds of hours for a single playthrough). The so-called "Ironman Impossible" of this mod is almost literally impossible - even for those who have bested its cousin from the base game. Not only Beaglerush played this mode for thousands of hours while losing a handful of times; he essentially regulates the ongoing development of the mod, its difficulty and the smartness of its AI by being so unerringly, frighteningly good. In the eyes of an experienced player, his winning streaks look no less improbable as hundreds of competitive chess games won by a single person in a row.

** At the same time, since the genre requires good teamwork at higher levels of play it's not unusual to find That One Player being shackled by a team that is only sub-par when compared to that individual, who will often be the team's superstar 'face'. Notable examples in VideoGame/{{DotA 2}} include Na'vi's Dendi and Neolution Orange's Mushi while League examples include Singapore Sentinels' Chawy and CLG's Doublelift.

* Ami Mizuno in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' manages to be this ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome on a game she has never played before]]''. She's just ''that'' smart.

* Ami Mizuno in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' manages to be this ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome on a game she has never played before]]''.before]]'', '''''twice'''''! First a platforming game in the original series and then a fighting game ''at a tournament'' in the ''Stars'' series. She's just ''that'' smart.

* Every table top RPG can have that guy who has read every sourcebook and is CrazyPrepared for every challenge and has the right tactics for every situation and knows every metapoint and knows how to read the GameMaster. If they're the LawfulGood type, they'll use their vast experience and preparedness to help new players and avoid breaking the game. If they're not, they can quickly annoy the entire table or get less talented players killed as the GM struggles to make things challenging enough for That One Player.

* A running gag in ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' was that Genie would always lose to carpet in the many, many games they played.

* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', competitive level Scouts run through enemy ranks Scattergunning and Back-capping everything in sight. Competitive Soldiers have the tendency to blast the shit out of any player in their way (whenever they aren't flying over the heads of their opponents with tricky rocket-jumps). Competitive Demos won't let the enemy team go NEAR an objective. Competitive Snipers often are accused of aimbotting and are a #1 source of ragequitting. Competitive Spies are good at not only disappearing and reappearing without a trace, but also making ridiculously tricky backstabs even on the players that ''know'' they're there. There's a trend going on here...

* ''{{Pokemon}}'' are full of these players. A player may be the best in their circle of friends and probably holds their own in random online battles until they meet the one player that knows all the game mechanics, knows how to manipulate the stats for their Pokemon, and has their team set up to counter most common teams and set ups. Pokemon tournaments may as well be made for these kinds of players.

* Konata Izumi of ''LuckyStar'' is seen playing a fighting game at an arcade in one episode. She beats a guy, much to his dismay of finding out who beat him. A strip similar in idea was: since she is [[OlderThanTheyLook excessively short]], the other {{tomboy}} misjudged her ability and got owned. On the next day, that other {{tomboy}} beat Konata-- but with such razor thin of a margin that she knew it was Konata who ''let her win''!

Series titles go in italics. Trope names do not. You've done this backwards. The use of double curly braces is also incorrect for multi-word names.
