* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' has this in spades. The pilot has is the BootCampEpisode,with Jack living with a buttload of characters. The "Jack learns to Jump Good" episode has him training with a tribe of apes who weigh him down with stones and have him run an obstacle course. The scene works on ManyLevels

The "Jack learns to Jump Good" episode has him training with two of them back-to-back; first Jack teaches a tribe of apes who weigh how to set traps and defend themselves from a rival tribe, and then they teach him how to "jump good" by weighing him down with stones and have him run an obstacle course. The scene works on ManyLevelsand jump all around the jungle.

A variant of the HardWorkMontage in which a character builds themselves up over time in preparation for a battle. Usually accompanied by uplifting music. If it's supposed to be taken seriously, they'll use something original, or just appropriate. If they're going for a full-on parody, it'll be one of the most well-recognised montage songs, or something reminiscent. If "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnqZl_blT7E Gonna Fly Now]]" from ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' can't be used, then Joe Esposito's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-WHW-QNswE "You're the Best"]] or Music/{{Survivor}}'s immortal [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btPJPFnesV4 "Eye Of The Tiger"]] makes for a good substitute.

* Inverted in ''Series/{{Lucifer}}'' when Amenadiel has to pretend to be human for a cage fight, which means not using his superpowers. So we get a montage where his skills decrease as he struggles to hit a punching bag without sending it flying across the gym, lift weights while pretending to strain at the effort, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking catch a chicken]] without using his time-stopping power.

* Subverted in ''The Amateur'', a 1981 film about a codebreaker who blackmails the CIA into letting him go into Czechoslovakia and kill the terrorists who killed his fiancee. To buy time while they find the secrets he's stolen (files on CIA black ops) they send him to "[[SpySchool The Farm]]" for training in assassination techniques. At the end of the appropriate montage between the CIA searching everyone he might have hidden the files, and the protagonist training, he tells the CIA to stop screwing around and send him in as he's never going to pass the course anyway.
