* ''InazumaEleven'' features skill manuals, items that instantly teach a character the new skill, which becomes a plot device as the rookie Raimon team keep relying on getting new GameBreaking abilities every chapter to climb up the tournament. It doesn't work by the half of the game and the heroes are finally told they need to train properly instead of spending times looking for papers.

* Used in ''Film/TheMatrix'', of course -- rather than spend time actually learning Kung Fu, Neo just has it uploaded directly into his brain. Voila, I know kung fu! At various other points in the series, other characters also gets instant uploads of useful skills, such as flying a helicopter, or hotwiring a motorbike. The second is gently spoofed when, before Trinity can be given the hotwiring skills, the Keymaker simply gives her the right key to turn on the bike.

** Naturally, these were both invented by Creator/WilliamGibson, the latter in ''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}'', the former in ''Mona Lisa Overdriv''e. The sex chip was usually implanted voluntarily (it makes earning money as a hooker less... icky) and the knowledge imparted by the memory chips vanished as soon as they were removed.
*** His choice of name for memory chips, ''micro softs'' dates the novel somewhat.
