* Joseph Joestar, from Part 2 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', never fully masters the way of [[SuperNaturalMartialArts Hamon]] like his grandfather and Part 1 protagonist Jonathan. What he lacks in mastery over Hamon, he more than makes up for in creativity and guile, defeating his opponents by outwitting them rather than simply overpowering them. In Part 3, he does get a Stand, but it's among the weakest Stands seen and is near useless in combat, leading Joseph to usually take a supporting role. When on his own, though, he reveals he's lost none of the keen mind he had in his youth.

** The Canim Ritualist Morak. Unlike [[BigBad Sarl]] he follows the old way and uses [[BloodMagic his own blood]] to fuel his spells rather than taking the blood of others. This gives him a lot less power than Sarl but he demonstrates a much higher level of efficiency and is able to accomplish a lot more with the power he has than Sarl could.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/11652534 Captain America: Ghosts of HYDRA]]'', Sharon Carter is this. She assists [[SuperSoldier Steve Rogers/Captain America and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier]] in taking down the remnants of HYDRA. While she has not taken a SuperSoldier serum like her companions, she more than makes up for it with sheer combat ability in CQC (whether hand-to-hand or her electric batons) and firearms. It is is because of this that she is able to mow down HYDRA agents, keep up with Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, and [[spoiler:kill another one of the Winter Soldiers, Josef by [[BoomHeadshot shooting him in the head]].]]

* In ''Literature/VioletThiefOfTheHermitCore'', Laven is this. He has sky-high Vitality and Resistance, Speed, and Luck, but low Strength and Intelligence, making him a good StoneWall. He usually wins through IndyPloy tactics and generally being skilled enough to make up for his lack of sheer strength.

In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', this is subverted with Comicbook/{{Batman}}, who's only able to go toe-to-toe with Franchise/{{Superman}} by weakening the Man of Steel with Kryptonite and using a suit of PoweredArmor to increase his own strength. When Doomsday arrives, something Bruce has [[OutsideContextProblem no preparations for]], all he can do is dodge and avoid the monster's attacks. It's played straight with both Superman and Franchise/WonderWoman who, while both having SuperStrength, are outmatched in brute strength by Doomsday. Wonder Woman is the only one who's really able to take it on in a fight due to her [[SuperReflexes agility]], experience and training, while Superman uses his flight momentum to coordinate strikes with her.

** Likewise, her student Connie is a human child, far weaker and more fragile than even the least combat worthy gem. She's made up for this for being extremely fast and agile, and with Rose's Sword (which is a One-Hit Kill weapon on Gems) her lack of strength doesn't matter. Again like Pearl the fusion she's involved with (Stevonnie) is the physically weakest one so far, yet humiliated the very powerful Jasper with far superior skill and tactics.

*** Though "weak" is a relative term, and applies more to the Air Nomad philosophy of [[TechnicalPacifist (technical) pacifism]] than their power. The Fire Nation waited until [[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent Sozin's Comet]] to move on them for a reason. Season Three of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' showed how [[StoryBreakerPower broken]] Airbending truly is, in the hands of an aggressor.
