* The four protagonists of ''Manga/{{Teekyuu}}'' are the four members of their school's tennis club...except they very rarely ''actually'' play tennis; when approached for an interview they'll instead break out a UsefulNotes/{{Famicom}} and play ''VideoGame/{{Pong}}'', or re-enact it.

* For being a movie about a man's rise to power in a mafia-like organization, there is little crime shown being done by anybody in ''Film/JohnnyDangerously'', even by the various villains. Johnny is aiming for a kinder, gentler sort of criminal family, after all.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': We almost never see (or in the radio version, hear) Miss Brooks actually teaching English, although [[InformedAttribute she's said to be quite good at it]]. The rare glimpses seen of Miss Brooks ''actually'' teaching are usually played for laughs, such as her tutoring of Stretch Snodgrass in "The Yodar Kritch Award". The same goes for Mr. Boynton, whose canonical biology lectures consist of one about the skeletal structure of frogs in "Mr. Conklin's Wake Up Plan".

* ''Webcomic/HowIBecameYours'' has a case of The Royals Who Don't Do Anything. Nearly all the protagonists have some sort of exalted title (Sokka and Katara are prince and princess of the combined Water Tribes, Zuko is Fire Lord, Aang is the Avatar, Toph is an Earth Kingdom noble who supposedly runs a quarter of the kingdom), and none of them seem to have any royal duties whatsoever. Katara and Sokka spend most of the story lounging around on one of Toph's estates, and Zuko and Aang soon join them. The only times we see a protagonist do something related to their jobs is when the main characters attend a ball in Katara's honor and when Zuko is HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee for abandoning the Fire Nation to be with Katara.

* Many wrestlers are accompanied at all times by colorful, charismatic "managers" - but we hardly ever see these so-called managers negotiating contracts, and we ''never'' see them handling their clients' financial assets.
** You ''want'' to? "Wrestling/{{WWE RAW}}, now with five times the pulse-pounding accounting action!"

* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' spends very little time doing any proper teaching, though he does go out of his way to teach his students many important life lessons not found in a typical school curriculum. The manga shows a few of his classes and even a couple of his lesson plans, and all of them serve to demonstrate that he has absolutely no idea what he's doing. One class involves his dressing up as {{Devilman}} to teach a lesson about sociology, only to give up halfway through and show the kids how to shoot bottle rockets out of their homeroom window instead.

* Worf's status as a Klingon could appear to be this in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. His warlike, belligerent attitude was so at odds with the requirements of his superior officers ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edflm7Hh3hs as this video shows]]) and the peaceful Federation, that one could suspect that if he ever ''acted'' the way he was ''written'' then he'd end up on a penal colony instead of the bridge of the flagship. Incidents when he actually has a chance to act Klingon frequently ended in the TheWorfEffect. Fortunately by the time he joined ''StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' there was a decent conflict to engage his Klingon nature.
