* Infamous ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' player Angwe was this to all Alliance players on the Dethecus server. Angwe was an Orc Rogue whose tactic of choice was to set up camp at a certain strategic point which the Alliance used a lot, and kill absolutely everyone - from lowbies to high-levels - that passed through, for 8 to 10 hours every day. That was back when Rogues were pretty much unstoppable if they got a drop on you, as they could get you in a virtually infinite [[CycleOfHurting stunlock loop]] and tear you to shreds, plus Angwe was really good at playing a rogue. He evolved beyond a simple {{griefer}} into an almost mythical figure, a God of Ganking of sorts. Entire '''guides''' have been written about how to avoid him. ''Cracked'' lists his actions as [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-7-most-elaborate-dick-moves-in-online-gaming-history_p7/ one of the most legendary dick moves in online gaming history]].

That One Player describes someone who has played a game so much, discovered all the secrets, knows all the moves, hell, he might as well have gotten the timing down to the point where he plays with almost super human reflexes. However, this ruins the fun of everyone else who plays with or against that one guy because he's so skilled, he's either doing all the fun parts or able to take on an army of adversaries without breaking a sweat. Of course, That One Player could also be [[GamerChick a woman]], which can make it even more embarrassing for the less secure male players. However, sometimes being That One Guy can be a talent for entertainment, when he can show off his inhuman skills.

* [[Series/HowIMetYourMother Marshall Eriksen]] has a preternatural skill for board games, such that he can deduce the rules of a complex foreign gambling game just by watching others play for a few minutes, despite not understanding what the players are saying. His friends assigned him to [[KickedUpstairs officiate their game nights rather than playing]], because otherwise he'd win every time.

* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Shuffle]]'''s competitive events, starting from the Blazikenite one, pretty much anyone at the near-top (or outright number one) ranks whose Pokémon consist of simply a [[CastingAShadow Gengar]] (a common Pokémon capable of [[SuperMode Mega Evolution]] used to score lots of points), [[OlympusMons Arceus]], and two strong [[NonElemental Normal-type]] mons. This combination is considered DifficultButAwesome because you need to think fast (especially getting Double Normal to work without breaking your combo), but once you've mastered it, you'll soon become this type of player and the "Optimize" button means nothing anymore (that is, unless the target Pokémon is resistant against Normal-types). For a somewhat specific example, one Japanese player used this exact strategy and managed to score around ''150,000'' points! Assuming that Attack Power ↑ is used (making the base score around a still-whopping ''75,000''), such score is near-impossible to achieve (even if the RandomNumberGod is friendly towards you) unless you're using a "Home" button exploit that no longer works in the more recent versions.

* The FightingGameCommunity has a small number of individuals who are just so many cuts above the rest that the title race in every tournament seems to be among them ''alone''.

* ''{{Pokemon}}'' is 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 that Konata ''let her win''!
