** The Asgard, during their war with the Replicators, tend to request the help of Earth, mainly due to the crude projectile technology of their weapons, and their ability to come up with very simple, at times reckless, yet very effective plans that theven Asgard are apparently ''too'' smart to come up with.

* On ''Series/StargateSG1'', 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/ActionLeagueNOW'' had Meltman, with the power to...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Melt!]] However, since he is only observed melting in the opening, this is more of a [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway What Kind of Lame Power is Melting Anyway?]] He ''did'' manage to get them tickets to a {{KISS}} concert, though.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Three Girls And A Monster" had Blossom and Buttercup unable to dispose of a giant lizard monster. Mainly because it's too friggin' big and strong, but also because the two sisters are arguing over whether brains or brawn are more effective. This leaves Bubbles. With her sweetness, innocence and politeness, beauty brings down her beast.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' during the final battle with [[spoiler:Scion]], [[spoiler:Khepri]] dismissed the Changer heroes as useless. During the last stretch she realized the best chance to win was by [[spoiler:[[DespairGambit reminding Scion of Eden's death]]]], a perfect role for the Changers.

** This could also be said of Hobbits in general - their overall contentment/lack of ambition is why the One Ring is less able to affect them than other races.

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendsForever'' Thestra is a pony with a unique and highly unusual (even for MLP standards) ability of [[spoiler: making skin and muscles invisible. This skill turns out to be perfect and extremely convenient to fight a [[MonsteroftheWeek giant flying orca made entirely of mirrors]]. Thanks to this encounter, Thestra is convinced that her talent can be useful.]]

* In ''VideoGame/KantaiCCollection'', certain quests and branching rules require you to use some ships that, due to not being particularly powerful, would normally be ignored by most players.
