* ''Fanfic/WhiteDevilOfTheMoon'', a crossover between [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha]] and ''Anime/SailorMoon'', has Nanoha perform so well on the Sailor Moon arcade game that she maxes out her score and reaches a KillScreen. She notes that the only thing difficult about it is that it was built for right-handed people (Nanoha is left-handed).

* The founder and leader of the ''VideoGame/{{Arma}}'' clan Shack Tactical, known as Dslyecxi, is famous for his uncanny ability to take down ridiculous amount of enemy soldiers solo through a combination of stealth and manipulating game psychology, to the point that a running gag within the group is dslyecxi being a hacker and players ingame calling 'dslyecxi watch' when he is known to be in the area.
** At one point, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PKPX-f2j4w he blundered/snuck into the enemy base]]. And right into the middle of a group of about six of them.
-->"Hey, guys, he's on the other team."\\

** At In one point, mission, Dslyecxi's team ([=OPFOR/Russians=]) and the other team ([=INDFOR/Independents=]) are meeting to negotiate a hostage release. The two sides aren't completely hostile to the other... but each side is looking to get the upper hand so they can cheat the other side by either retaking the hostages without paying anything, or getting the payment and then keeping or killing the hostages. Dslyecxi decided to have a little fun with the formula. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PKPX-f2j4w he blundered/snuck He runs into the enemy base]]. And Independent's base before they even arrive]], and when they do arrive he spends the next several minutes sneaking around, either in darkened rooms just next to where the Independents are or passing along in the shadowy corners of rooms where they are congregating, moving quickly enough that they don't get a good look at him and realize he isn't one of them. Eventually he winds up right into the middle of a group of about six of them.

them who are guarding the other team."\\hostages when the building's light finally get turned on. It still takes almost another 40 seconds before anyone realizes that he not on their team, causing the follow to happen:
--->'''INDFOR Soldier:''' Who-? Are you a Russian? [several beats] Hey, we have a Russian here.\\



"It's Dslyecxi."\\
''[[MookHorrorShow Everyone takes a step back]]''.\\
"[[{{Troll}} I've been here the entire time if that helps you sleep better]]."\\
"[[OhCrap Jesus]] [[ParanoiaFuel Christ]]."

'''First INDFOR Soldier:''' I've seen you take out whole squads of [[NewMeat pFNGs]].\\
'''Second INDFOR Soldier:''' It only takes one of you to kill everyone.



* Beaglerush, who happens to be friends with Dslyecxi, is this towards VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown. He regularly ([[ScheduleSlip kinda]]) releases episodes of him playing [[HarderThanHard Ironman Impossible]] gameplay, and considering the odds are stacked against him in such a manner, he does extraordinarily well. Sometimes the game just gives him the middle finger, but then there are times he beats missions that are UnwinnableByDesign difficult with only losing a single soldier.
** Moreover, the XCOM game has a notoriously difficult, intricate and insanely long mod called ''[[VideoGame/XCOMLongWar 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 Team Liquid's Miracle- and Evil Geniuses's [=Suma1L=] while League examples include SK Telecom's Faker and CLG's Doublelift.

* 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.
