** The spinoff ''Fanfic/TheBridgeHumanitysStand'' featured a fight of Godzilla Junior and Zilla vs Gojira, the creature from ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}''. Gojira is ''much'' stronger and tougher than Junior and Zilla, but Junior notes that he doesn't seem to be used to fighting beings who approach him in power. Gojira's skills may have decayed since he's been in hibernation for literally millions of years.

** Max is this to a degree. While he can't really hold his own in a serious fight with any Spirits just yet, upon discovering his tool, he immediately one-shots a Grudge that had been giving Isabel- the Activity Club's most skilled fighter- something of a challenge. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that the Spirit possessing his bat is in fact a powerful Grudge and that he, himself, may be possessed by something even stronger.]] Meanwhile, Max struggles to use the Spec-Shot, a basic spectral technique.
** Izaac is this to Isabel. His status as a medium for a powerful storm spirit gives him the raw fire power to confidently declare himself the most powerful member of the club, and his lightning generation and weather manipulation can back that up. On the other hand, Isabel has been trained all her life in the ways of spectral energy manipulation and martial arts to the point where she is a credible threat to some powerful spirits, even without a tool.

** Their friend Hayate is this down to the core. Her magical power is by far the highest in the entire TSAB and her attacks are equal to ''nukes''. And yet she's - at least in the main continuity, as opposed to the ''Battle of Aces'' one - helplessly unskilled and needs support to even aim her attacks properly. As she says ''herself'', this is why she would lose to almost everyone else in the main cast, despite being theoretically the strongest mage alive.

** Of course, him not ''needing'' to use skill isn't the same as not having it - later on it becomes apparent Saitama must have a great deal of control behind his strength, such as when he managed to destroy an entire cliff-face behind Genos during their spar while leaving Genos completely unharmed.

That said, his fighting style is, in and of itself, pretty straightforward, and he turns down learning a martial arts style from fellow hero Bang because he doesn't need technique with his level of strength.



* Mangaka ONE seems to enjoy this trope, as both of his major protagonists can demonstrate:
** Saitama from ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' trained to be strong enough to defeat any opponent in a single punch, and an OVA shows him turning down training from fellow hero Bang because he simply doesn't need any technique with how strong he is.
** Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama from ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' may not train in inventive uses of psychic techniques, like some of his adversaries, but his raw psychic power is so immeasurable that he doesn't need to be inventive most of the time.

** Also from ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Spider-Man. He has the fighting skills you'd expect from a fifteen-year old bookworm who has only had his powers for six months, but his agility, strength, speed and secondary abilities still allow him to casually take on his opponents while treating the whole thing like some big adventure.

* Macho pitchers, the ones with the fastest pitches, are usually unskilled in ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D''. They don't take advantage of the strike zone's borders as much as pitchers with other body builds. And then there's an aversion with Tall pitchers from Team Crystal and the Arc Stars [[note]]Noel is considered a Tall character for pitching and batting purposes[[/note]], who have fast pitches ''and'' use them to great effect to get strikes by pitching right on the border of the strike zone.

* In ''Manga/WorldTrigger'', Chika is the least skilled sniper that Border has as official agent, where she didn't even complete her training yet. However, she is more threatening than other snipers because her massive trion turns her rifle into a [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Gun]].

* ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'' has Rodin when playable in Tag Climax. In contrast to Bayonetta and Jeanne, who are {{Dance Battler}}s with graceful movements, Rodin's fighting style has far less finesse and mainly consists of wild hook punches, haymakers, uppercuts, and a ShockwaveStomp. But his sheer brute strength makes this a relatively moot point.
