** One could argue that this applies to Hermione. Though she is incredibly skilled with spells, she tends to be overwhelmed when she duels more powerful and experienced wizards.
** Peter Pettigrew is an interesting example as there seems to be nothing wrong with his magical skills yet he himself is a wimp.

* This is pretty much the [[MaskedLuchador Technico-Luchador's]] schtick, while the Rudo-Luchadors tend to be stronger and are often a CombatPragmatist.

* This trope is how Anime/CuteyHoney can fight [[Manga/SailorMoon Dark Kingdom youma]] and win in ''Venus Flash'': while far weaker than any serious youma, let alone Sailor Venus, she's an experienced fighter that [[CombatPragmatist would not exitate into throwing a flamethrower-vielding enemy into an open fire or]] ''[[CombatPragmatist strip herself as a distraction]]'' and used to fight stronger enemies, allowing her to keep up with creative use of her powers.

** [[spoiler:[[Manga/JacoTheGalacticPatrolman Jaco]]]] has shown his skills again and again, proving that [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass his bragging of being a super elite for being a member of the Galactic Patrol is well-founded]], with feats that include instantly calculating how much strength he needed to kick a falling giant rocket away from East City without blowing it up and noticing things that escaped ''Beerus and Champa''. In his solo series he also flat-out admits ''any'' adult Saiyan would destroy him (he's gotten better by ''Film/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', enough to fight a small army of Frieza's soldiers and come out on top, but he's still far from the big guys).

** Unbelievably, ''[[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]]'': in his fight with Cell he attacks with great skill and in such a way that he would have ''destroyed'' a normal opponent, but as his opponent was the far stronger Cell he didn't even scratch him.

* Luanne Lui from ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'', mostly due to her speed.

** Most salarian soldiers do this. Salarian are not a strong race, so they use their heads to fight.
** Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' was a regular, ordinary human, who ''still'' managed to take down Krogan, Thresher Maws and Reapers. Technically this makes them ''more'' badass than they are in the sequels, as the Lazarus Project turns them into an EmpoweredBadassNormal.

* ''Fanfic/ThisBites'': Cross and Soundbite. Cross has a good tactical mind and knowledge from another dimension, but he's still a [{Muggle|s}} in the WorldOfBadass in which ''Manga/OnePiece'' is set, meaning that his physical capabilities are barely enough for him to stand up to {{Mooks}}. Soundbite's Noise-Noise Fruit powers make him masterful in bluffing out and sometimes disabling his opponents, as well as mustering reinforcements in seconds, but if those fail, he's nothing but a defenseless snail. With their wits combined, however, they're easily formidable enough to have a place with the Straw Hat Pirates.

Soundbite's Noise-Noise Fruit powers make him masterful in bluffing out and sometimes disabling his opponents, as well as mustering reinforcements in seconds, but if those fail, and he's nothing but developed a defenseless few genuine attacks. But without his powers, he's only a snail. With their wits combined, however, and Lassoo as the main source of firepower, they're easily formidable enough to have a place with the Straw Hat Pirates.

* Saito in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10090792/1/ Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji]]'' notes that he's roughly half as strong as the average student in the academy but because he's a fully accredited mage and the way his magic (called mysticism) works, he's considerably more dangerous.
