* Any human in ''Manga/BeetTheVandelBuster'' capable of threatening a high star Vandel, including the main characters. Slade in particular fits this, he is small but quick, his special weapon is invisible rather than being an obvious representation of power like usual, and he is fond of advanced techniques involving intricate timing.

[[spoiler:He is nearly killed when fighting Beltorze's puppet since Beltorze is just as intelligent a fighter ''and'' has a ton of raw power to boot.]]

* ComicBook/Daredevil has a powerset consisting of SuperSenses and a DisabilitySuperpower that compensates for his blindness by giving him a special "radar sense" instead. Other than that, he relies on his athleticism and combat training to survive. That said, it's often all Daredevil needs, as he's very creative in figuring out ways to use his powers to defeat enemies that otherwise outclass him in sheer power. He's even defeated villains like [[GeniusBruiser Mr.]] [[TheBerserker Hyde]] and [[PowerCopying the Absorbing Man]], guys who've regularly gives ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' and ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk'' fits, this way.

* On paper, Comicbook/CaptainAmerica isn't all that impressive. He's listed as the height of human potential, but a good chunk of his enemies are ''way'' beyond that. Unfortunately for most villains, he's more than skilled enough to make him one of the top A-list heroes in Marvel. On at least one occasion, he's actually beaten [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]]. In one instance Captain America lost the strength and agility that was given to him by the Super Solider serum, turning him back into that skinny kid from Brooklyn. While being intimidated by some newly super-powered thugs, Cap tells them that while the serum gave him physical strength, his skills are the result of years of training and discipline. [[CurbStompBattle He then demonstrates.]]

He's also [[CrazyPrepared made a point of reading up on just about every major villain and threat the Avengers and U.S. government have gathered data on]], so he often starts fights with villains knowing what to look out for and what their {{Logical Weakness}}es are.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Jay Garrick is not as fast as Barry Allen and eventually loses his powers, but he's a lot more experienced and had several tricks with speed that Barry had never thought of. Jay teaches Barry his tricks, making him much more effective.

* Rook from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''. He is one of the few aliens in the franchise to lack any ability that could qualify as a superpower, and his weapons, while [[SwissArmyWeapon extremely versatile]], is pointed out to lack power. Yet, he is skilled enough to stand against much more powerful ennemies and defeat them. ''Predators And Prey'' even have him defeating one of the major antagonists in a hand-to-hand fight.

* Potentially Trixie from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. She's a stage magician by trade, yet when her power was tested by an Ursa Minor it proved rather inadequate. Later her power output was boosted by an artifact to around Celestia or Luna's level, she was capable of using, with ease no less, spells which Twilight considered far outside her range. And she's just a performer.

* Similarly, spin bowlers in {{Cricket}}. A spin bowler normally bowls at about half the speed of a good fast bowler, but uses a set of elaborate techniques to make the ball "swing" in the air and bounce in improbable ways instead.

* The main character from ''Manga/AnatoliaStory'' herself, Yuri Suzuki. She's a complete weakling physically speaking and can't do a thing when she's being sexually assaulted, but being from the future has its advantages. She is revered as Ishtar because she rode a horse, something that's common nowadays, but in ancient Turkey was unheard of. She also recognized an iron sword (and used it against Zuwa), which is not so valuable today as it was back then.

* Leon S. Kennedy in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''--particularly if the player is daring enough to do a [[Main/SelfImposedChallenge knife- or]] [[Main/UpToEleven no-upgrades-handgun-only]] run. He's more agile than he was as a rookie in the RCPD, and he's gotten advanced combat training since then too--which are the only things keeping him alive against a literal army of parasite-powered villagers, cultists, soldiers, giants, giant ''bugs'', Regenerators, and chainsaw nuts with sacks over their heads--not to mention the obligatory freakshow bosses, every single one of which is capable of killing him in one hit. Sure, he has superior firepower for most of the game--but a gun isn't much use to someone who can't put the bullets where they need to go.

** All of this aside, this is a base requirement for ''any'' monster that intends to fight a human and hopes to survive, due to their incredibly weak souls and even weaker bodies.
