* Mami Tomoe of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is a veteran MagicalGirl, as skilled, powerful and overall BadAss as she is nice and kind, and it seems like she's all set to play the role of TheMentor to the main characters. ''Madoka Magica'' being the DeconstructorFleet it is, it is quickly shown that Mami is actually a lonely BrokenAce, and [[spoiler:episode 3 shows that, yes, [[CerebusSyndrome she is]] ''[[LosingYourHead quite good]]'' [[SacrificialLion at dying]], too.]]

** The Immortal is the apex of the trope. [[BadAss Total badass]], [[SexGod had a threesome with Darla and Drusilla]], [[TortureTechnician then right after tortured both Angelus and Spike]], [[MartyStu climbed mount Everest several times and wrote a self-help book that is a "life-changer"]]. The Immortal is, simply put, everything Spike and Angel want to be ''only better''. And he ''always'' beats them. And he also sleeps with Buffy, who spurns both Angel and Spike in the episode "The Girl in Question"...

* ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' had Justin. It's difficult to find a Scrappy in that season, for [[ReplacementScrappy obvious reasons]], but Justin is a [[TeenGenius preteen genius]] who, by the end of the season, is the most experienced Ranger on the team, due to his four companions leaving. Oddly, he has a character, including a [[DarkerAndEdgier father who abandoned him because he couldn't deal with Justin's mother's death]] and [[FreudWasRight he uses Tommy as a substitute father]], but [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Jason David Frank leaving the show]] cut that plot short.

* Gary in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' at the start of the series. He'd show up in a convertible (complete with cheerleaders) every so often and completely degrade Ash with just how better than him he was.
** Ends up being downplayed, though. Gary Oak was a badass that he has collected [[BrokeTheRatingscale ten badges]] [[http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/halolz-dot-com-pokemontvshow-garyfuckingoak-motivational.jpg from Kanto]], where [[MemeticMutation there are only 8 gyms]]. However, he gets owned in the Veridian City Gym by Mewtwo, and in the Kanto League preliminaries, both which Ash fared better. This, and the fact that Gary got pampered with a convertible, pretty much implies that Gary, [[BrilliantButLazy while being a skilled trainer, did not undergo the same effort of travelling/training/gym-badge-collecting that Ash, Brock, and Misty did.]]

* Kazuki, the protagonist of ''LightNovel/MagikaNoKenshiToShoukanMaou'', completely averts the [[ThisLoserIsYou normal]] [[TheEveryman portrayal]] of male harem leads. Good with [[MasterSwordsman swords]], [[SummonMagic magic]], and [[TheCasanova the ladies]], he's also a genuinely NiceGuy who will tear himself to shreds for those he loves. In other circumstances, this would lead to accusations of {{MarySue}}dom, but the story manages to dodge that bullet by never getting in the readers face about it, and focusing more on developing the actual plot of the series than touting Kazuki's awesomeness.
** This is actually brought up by Leme, Kazuki's [[SummonMagic Summon]]. She chose him precisely because he was both incredibly strong and fundamentally selfless person. His power was necessary to defend their country, and his attitude keeps him from abusing that power.



** She may act like an ace but she is also a [[spoiler: time-traveling, possibly SufficientlyAdvancedAlien relative of the Main Character whose true objective seems to change a Future ''Bad end''. a scheme which seemly has joined a GambitPileup with the current arc]] she might be an almost FixerSue or at least trying to be one.

** Goku most definitely. [[AwesomenessByAnalysis He learns techniques just by watching them once or twice]], and [[AdaptiveAbility become immune to them since he knows how to counter them]]. Within a few years, his martial art skills surpasses all his masters, including God/The Guardian of the Earth, and wins the World Martial Arts Tournament when he's still a teenager, becoming the [[WorldsStrongestMan strongest man in the world]]. He then finds out ''why'' he's able to do all these things when it's revealed that he's a [[HumanAliens Saiyan]], who are a race that is born for battle. [[InexplicablyAwesome Even that]] doesn't fully explain how he's able to defeat members of his race consider to be elites and even royalty, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeats and/or kills seemingly invincible aliens and monsters]], and achieves ''all'' the available Super Saiyan transformations and even goes beyond [[PhysicalGod godhood]]. He's so good that everyone defer to him to solve the problem of the current arc, even if he isn't the strongest at the moment. His ace status, however, does get [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] after the Frieza Saga. Because he is so powerful and so good at what he do, [[CrutchCharacter his friends and family depends on him too much]] to fix the current problem, which leads to a BadFuture in one alternative timeline. His one true rival, Vegeta, also [[OverShadowedByAwesome becomes so sick of being overshadowed by Goku]] that he sells his soul for power and unleashes Majin Buu upon the world.

[[NiceJobBreakingItHero This only makes it worse]] and Shepard's psychologist indirectly [[WhatTheHellHero calls them out]] on this during Sam's therapy. Ultimately a downplayed [[DoubleSubverted Double Subversion]] as she returns to duty as combat-proficient, [[TalkingYourWayOut diplomatic]], and [[TakeAThirdOption creative]] as ever, though she spreads TheChainsOfCommanding around by deferring to Garrus on occasion.
* Alexend from the French Pokémon Fanfic/Parody "Pokémon D/P: Plus qu'un jeu" (Pokémon Diamond/Pearl: More Than A game). Seemingly invincible, uses a sword rather than fight with his Pokémon, although he sometimes does so; always appears to help the main character, Zeronos (not related to Zeronos from ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' except his name which was taken from there, it's his ACTUAL NAME), when he's facing an opponent too strong for him, such as Drakness, or simply to destroy something too stupid for him to deal with normally (such as facing the Teletubbies in a Pokémon fight, Alexend just jumped in and killed them all in one slash of his sword before the fight even started, stating that it wouldn't have been funny to fight them anyway.). He have a tendency to show up (and go away when he's done) in an unnecessary cool looking fashion (includes DramaticWind, sparkles, lens flares and whatnot when he's in a good mood, but he his more likely to just pop up in a breeze of wind behind Zeronos and disappear the same way). Can be considered as a mix between SidekickExMachina, HypercompetentSidekick and a bit of ParodySue.
