* Jin of Manga/WorldTrigger. He's not quite the best at anything, rather, he combines personal fighting skill, diplomacy and ChessMaster tendencies into a general talent for getting things done. Be it resolving a rough patch of internal politics, de-escalating a fight or [[spoiler: stopping a massive invasion.]]

** Don Rosa's Scrooge stories also introduce the ''maddeningly'' annoying Gladstone Gander, Donald's snobbish cousin who epitomizes the BornLucky trope. While Scrooge made every penny of his fortune by being "tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties," and poor Donald can't catch a break, Gladstone doesn't have to do anything at all to make heaps of cash (in fact, he actually tends to be unluckier when he exerts himself).

* The [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Kings]] Of [[Wrestling/ChrisHero Wrestling]] in between 2005 and 2006 were the aces of {{tag team}} wrestling in the USA. They held the Wrestling/{{CZW}}, Ring Of Honor and Chikara tag team title belts all at once and only really dropped the belts because WWE was interested in Castagnoli, only to abruptly drop him, allowing the Kings to reform up until WWE finally found something for Castagnoli to do. This was not the case in Japan however, where the Kings entered Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH's Global Tag League and lost ''all'' of their matches in 2008. They got a little winning streak started in 2010 but when they tried the Global Tag League again in 2011, they merely placed 7th out of 8 in the round robin.

* reDRagon. While Bobby Fish had ''some'' tag success back in his Jerk Jackson days, Kyle O'Reilly only found it in singles junior heavyweight matches and only on a regional basis. But after numerous failed tag teams partnered with Fish in 2013 and went on to boast an undefeated streak against the faces of what had become the deepest tag team division in the world, The Briscoes. reDRagon then did No Remorse Corps(who lent credibility to that claim in a takeover of New Japan's Junior ranks) and Forever Hooligans(the first to hold IWGP and ROH tag titles at the same time) better by taking the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Titles ''without contracts''.

* In 2002 The Briscoe Brothers were TagTeam Champions of JAPW, PWF and NWA Wildeside at the same time, which was just the start. Twelve years after Ring of Honor established their first title belt there had only been two men to hold their world title twice, one two time television champion and no champions who ever successfully regained the Pure Championship belt. In sharp contrast, The Tag Team Title belts had been won by The Briscoes ''seven'' times during this time period and Dem Boys would start an eighth reign at the end of the year. Some of their ROH reigns also overlapped with their winning the tag titles of sister promotion Full Impact Pro, Ruckus's RCW, Pro Wrestling Unplugged, [=2CW=] and the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Titles of Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH. They later became IWGP ''Heavyweight'' Tag Team Champions, after being the inaugural NEVER Openweight 6-man Tag Team Champions alongside Toru Yano. While The Briscoes don't dominate singles matches the same way they do as a tag team, Jay ''was'' the second of those two men to regain the ROH World Championship belt.

* Achilles and Odysseus of TheIliad and TheOdyssey are this trope to different degrees. Achilles borders on BoringInvincibleHero while Odysseus is one of the earliest known examples of a GuileHero.

* Jupiter of ''VisualNovel/WeKnowTheDevil'' is one, but it's noted by the narration that she has a tendency to screw things up when it really counts - like 'blanking on the last question' or 'missing the winning goal'. [[BrokenAce She ultimately subverts this.]]

* And speaking of Film/JamesBond, the version played by Creator/PierceBrosnan qualifies as well. He has a habit of upstaging people (but usually the villain) at whatever their skillset is. No matter what they can do or how long they've been doing it, Bond will do it better than them with no prep time or practice. At least when it comes to sword fighting, this trope even applies to Brosnan in RealLife, as Toby Stephens[[note]]it's worth noting that Stephens is 16 years Brosnan's junior and has a more muscular build than his older co-star[[/note]] reveals in one of the bonus features on the ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' Blu-Ray.
-->'''Stephens''': I'm slightly cheesed off with Pierce, who hardly came in, has just picked [the sword fighting] up as we've gone along. I mean, he's brilliant, he's just gone on with it, while I've been practicing it for months!
