** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'': The Pathfinders were intended to handle exploration, diplomacy, research, and combat, in roughly that order. In-game, you do all that plus odd jobs for anybody who needs help, though in fairness many of those fall under diplomacy (helping allies). It's explained that Alec Ryder, the PC's father, invented the Pathfinder role, but he died before he had a chance to do anything with it. You, as the most prominent Pathfinder, get to define the limits of the role... and apparently it includes doing odd jobs for everyone.

Alec was formerly an N7, the same as Shepard; this trope is apparently part of their training.

** Cell averts this; he is ultimately killed by Gohan.
** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the FinalBoss of the Future Trunks arc also averts this; [[spoiler:Fused Zamasu is bisected by Future Trunks and annihilated by Future Zen'o-sama]].

* Zig-zagged in ''Manga/YuGiOh''. The outcome of anyone but Yami Yugi dueling the main antagonist is usually a ForegoneConclusion, as is Yugi dueling almost anyone, though Yami Yugi sometimes needs a final push from his friends to deliver the final blow. Played straight against Yami Marik, as Mai, Yami Bakura, and Jonouchi failed to defeat him and Yami Yugi eventually defeated him without ThePowerOfFriendship. Many of the other options employed to defeat Zorc in the final battle were also hopeless by design as the arc was leading up to Yami Yugi's true name being the weapon needed to defeat him.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Kyubey is a pretty extreme example. He claims to be part of a vast civilization of {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s, but even when the plot escalates to the point of [[spoiler:destroying Earth and rewriting the laws of reality]], we never see a single other member of his species. This is somewhat averted in TheMovie, where thousands of his fellow space-ferrets make an appearance; though they still don't actually ''do'' anything, they just observe the antics of the main characters from afar until they [[spoiler:get obliterated all at once by a RainOfArrows]].

** Zig-zagged in the original series. The outcome of anyone but Yami Yugi duelling the main antagonist was usually a ForegoneConclusion, though Yami Yugi would sometimes need a final push from his friends to deliver the final blow. Played straight with Marik, as both Mai and Jonouchi failed to defeat him and Yami Yugi eventually defeated him without the PowerOfFriendship. Many of the other options employed to defeat Zorc in the final battle were also hopeless by design as the arc was leading up to Yami Yugi's true name being the weapon needed to defeat him.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Very blatant in the first season when the Key Guardians are dueling the Seven Stars Assassin. Despite having the same number of members, Judai defeats five of them ''and'' defeats the BigBad in the end.

** PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', if you assign Vega, whose tech-savvy is mostly limited to cleaning guns and crashing a shuttle, to handle a complicated engineering task on a mission; he'll still ''do'' it, but it will mostly consist of fiddling with the wires, [[PercussiveMaintenance then kicking it]].
