* Dr. Johnson from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' occasionally got his moment in the sun as a dermatologist (one had him confirm a melanoma diagnosis), which annoyed the shit out of Dr. Cox, who considered it a mostly useless specialty. Whether it is or not, dermatology is one of the highest-paid medical specialties in the U.S., dermatologists make almost $400,000 a year.

The exact opposite of this would be KryptoniteIsEverywhere, when it's a hero's weakness that is far more commonly available than makes sense. Compare HeartIsAnAwesomePower, when the power seems uselessly specific but turns out to be useful in many situations. Compare/Contrast WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway.

Contrast PlotTailoredToTheParty, where the same contrivance is used to make the members of a team seem equally useful, rather than to make one specific hero look powerful on his own. BenevolentArchitecture overlaps with either this or PlotTailoredToTheParty.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the one person dungeons required to gain each artifact weapon is designed in such a way that it'd be incredibly difficult, if not outright impossible, for another class to do.

** True to the spirit of the trope, most of Misty's character-centered arcs were based around the usage of Water-type Pokemon. This included (but is not limited to) a battle with Ash over a Totodile they both claimed they caught, battling a gym trainer who specialized in underwater Pokemon battles, and an entire Pokémon League-esque tournament that required all participants to use Water-type Pokemon.

** Dr. Elizabeth Weir is assigned as the new commander of the Stargate Program based apparently on her expertise as a diplomat. Everyone (especially her) questions how this qualifies her to run the Stargate Program, which is primarily a military operation. In the Season Eight premier "New Order", she gets to use her skills during a negotiation with the Goa'uld, before leaving to head the [[Series/StargateAtlantis Atlantis expedition]].
*** However, it's explained that the whole point of putting a civilian in charge is that the Stargate program shouldn't be a military operation, and since a large part of it involves meeting and trading with other civilisations a diplomat is the perfect person for the job. If anything her appointment inverted this trope, since everyone involved previously lacked this obviously necessary expertise and frequently got in trouble as a result.
