** To give you an idea of just how perfect Sanguinius was, ''[[GloryHound Horus]]'' openly admitted that he believed Sanguinius would have been the better Warmaster. When Guilliman feared the Emperor was dead, he chose Sanguinius to lead his Imperium Secondus.

** No mention of Sanguinius? Sure, he may not have had Guilliman's statemanship skills, Fulgrim's passion, or the physical prowess of, say, Russ or Vulcan, but he was widely considered the best blend of all of the Emperor's attributes, and he was a NiceGuy and AllLovingHero of the highest calibre. He was also probably the most skilled fighter of the Primarchs, though not necessarily the strongest - just look at how he single-handedly held the gates of the Imperial Palace against literally everything the Forces of Chaos had. To top it off he was the [[{{Bishonen}} prettiest]] Primarch.

* Kanna is considered to be this by her classmates in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', both academically and physically. It helps that she's a centuries old dragon from another world.

** The Zero Division, also known as the Royal Guard, are a squad comprised of these. In fact, their combined combat prowess is said to surpass that of the Gotei 13 itself, and even Sosuke Aizen avoids confronting them head-on without preparation. Too bad they are crushed by Yhwach and his Schutzstaffel, who are monsters far above their level.

If the Ace's talent is operating combat vehicles, then they're an AcePilot, but note that not all ace pilots are an example of the Ace. If the Ace's private life isn't nearly as great as it seems from the outside, then they're a BrokenAce. Take this too far and you risk accusations of a MarySue (especially if the Ace is female). Though this trope is often played for comedy, Ace's impossible talents being the joke. If (s)he isn't really that amazing, then see FeetOfClay or FakeUltimateHero. If their talent is due to intelligence instead of simple awesomeness, see ImpossibleGenius. In a High School setting, they're typically the BigManOnCampus.

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', Ehiru is repeatedly called Hananja's favourite and considered the best currently active Gatherer. He is the strongest, most graceful, most compassionate, incorruptible and absolutely devoted to Hananja and her law. He can also easily perform two Gatherings per night, which most Gatherers struggle with. Both the other Gatherers and his apprentice Nijiri look up to him.

* Anyone on the miraculous Aspect Arc known as "The Ace" in ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' is just plain better than you at doing skill-based things, especially after 3+, to the extent that eventually they gain the ability to surf sound waves and punch characters out of comic books. Of course, the other Miraculous Arcs offer options such as [[FisherKing control over large areas]], [[TheFairFolk becoming a fairytale monster]], [[ElementalPowers control over elements]], [[PowerOfTheVoid blasting things out of existence]], [[RealityWarper reality warping]], [[PowerAtAPrice binding powers to various pacts and injuries]], or the ever-popular [[ScaledUp turning into a giant snake]], so it's not a guaranteed "I Win" button all that often.

It's also balanced by being an incredible MP hog when used too often.
* Allison Carter in the ''Costume Fairy Adventures'' demo playset, The Big Pie Caper. It's hinted that she may be the rightful queen or something similarly heroic. She also has a massive 15 Stress in a game where non-player characters only rarely get more than 10 (putting her on par with the toughest of player character types, the pixies), has higher stats than them, and wins ties. Successfully pranking her is considered to be a harder achievement than rebuilding the village if fae shenanigans burn it down.
* In basically any field of human endeavour, the Solar TabletopGame/{{Exalted}} are better than any ordinary human than they have any right to be, and they are the most powerful of the Exalted. Abyssals and Infernals share a similar power level (give or take) but are {{Broken Ace}}s and just plain weird respectively.

* If Finn and Blake are to be believed, Cal from ''{{Literature/Abominable}}'' could be described this way. Finn's doubles as a BadassBoast for himself.
--> "Seriously?" Finn was saying, his voice deeper than I had expected. "Cal is literally the only person in this town more dangerous than me."
