* Lucien Moreau from the ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' Laurentia arc was a larger-than-life globetrotting adventurer who effortlessly succeeded at everything he put his mind to and was remarkably rich, charismatic, well-traveled and famous from a remarkably young age. Unfortunately, he got the notion that his four children would automatically be [[WellDoneSonGuy just as successful]] by virtue of being his and would be certain to carry on his legacy just as well as him. To say that [[BastardAngst this]] [[DrivenToSuicide didn't]] [[TakeAThirdOption work]] [[QuittingToGetMarried well]] for any of them would be an understatement.

This didn't keep him from becoming ShroudedInMyth and being remembered as the father of his country.

** Kagami also counts, since he [[spoiler:is capable of going toe-to-toe with and ''defeating'' the GoM.]] And then you have Akashi, who can do pretty much everything outside of basketball as well as being an excellent player...
** There are also the Uncrowned Kings, 5 players who are on the same level as the GoM but one year older who never got as much fame[[note]]Kiyoshi, Hanamiya, Mibuchi, Nebuya, Hayama[[/note]]. Himuro is also noted as being a "W Ace" of Yousen (the other half being Murasakibara).

** Tywin is a villainous example, setting the standard for House Lannister. He's a better schemer than Cersei, a better commander than Jaime, and a better negotiator than Tyrion (compare their handling of Olenna Tyrell). He's TheDreaded for very good reason.

He's ruthless and a better schemer than Cersei, a better commander than Jaime, and a better negotiator than Tyrion (compare their handling of Olenna Tyrell).Tyrell) and because he is willing to cross lines that Tyrion won't (such as say, violating guest right) he is a more effective war-time politician. He's TheDreaded for very good reason.

* Every American football team in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' has an ace, with Sena being the ace running back for Deimon. More prominent to this trope, however, is Riku of the Seibu Wild Gunmen, who taught Sena how to run properly. Two more examples who fit this trope are Shin and the villainous version, [[[{{Jerkass}} Agon]]. Agon especially, since he has [[spoiler: God-Speed Impulse, which allows him to react faster than anyone, can catch up with Sena (at his average pace) after being passed by, and also stole the [[SignatureMove Devilbat Ghost]] after only seeing it]]. It is cemented by the fact that he's allowed to do whatever he wants by his school.

However TheHero typically evolves into an Ace by the end of their story by virtue of having [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential the most potential to unlock.]] By the time this happens the original Ace will likely be hit by TheWorfEffect a few times or both will be standing on equal ground. However, TheHero starting the story as an Ace is not unheard of it, and can serve as a reconstruction.
