** 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.

* The ''{{Diablo}}'' Franchise has many Magic and Unique items which enable the use of abilities you haven't invested skill points into, or even abilities from a different class. However, take off that piece of gear or store that charm in your chest, and you can kiss that ability goodbye.

Becoming truly skilled at something takes a long time and a lot of hard work. Sometimes, you can handle this with a TrainingMontage, but the plot doesn't always have enough time for this. So, how DO you go about transforming your UnluckyEverydude into a BadAss SuperHero in less than an hour?

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' and other cyberpunk [[TabletopGames tabletop roleplaying games]] use "skill softs" and linguasofts, datachips containing memories and trained reflexes or foreign languages copied from a donor and uploaded into the recipient's brain via a datajack. For physical skills like combat or piano playing, it's necessary to install a skill wire cyber system into the body's nervous system and limbs which basically remote-controls the body and overwrites its reflexes with new ones while the skill chip is activated. In ''{{GURPS}} Cyberpunk'', "slave chips" can be used to paralyze a subject (usually a prisoner) or overwrite his personality with a new subservient one, for example to turn someone into a sex slave.

** Nanoha and Fate became the overpowered mages they are by [[TrainingFromHell training a lot]]. Hayate, who received the power and spells of the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Book of Darkness]] after she became its Master, beats them both in raw magical strength (but because she skipped the basics she suffers from AceLightningSyndrome).
** While training is responsible for much of Nanoha and Fate's crazy power level, a large portion of it is due to their [[AppliedPhlebotinum Velka Cartridge Systems]], which fall somewhere in between Upgrade Artifacts and ''normal'' old [[MidSeasonUpgrade Mid-Season Upgrades]].
