* Played with in ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' for {{Wii}} with Von-Kaiser. Prior to his first match he's [=KO'd=] by what appears to be a ''kindergarten student'' and mocked by all the kid's friends, making him suffer from a nasty inadequacy complex when facing you for the first time. Unlike the other characters who [[TookALevelInBadAss Take A Level In Bad Ass]], change tactics, or ''cheat'' to up their game for the [[NewGamePlus Title Defense match]], Von Kaiser merely gets so angry that you have the championship belt that he gets over his complex and shows up at full strength to challenge you. [[spoiler:It's played with because, while he's about as difficult as the Major Circuit opponents from before, the "full strength" Von Kaiser is still laughably easy to beat]].



** The "Fiendship is Magic" comics confirm that this is the case: [[spoiler:in the past, the two fought once before. Celestia defeated Chrysalis, [[OneManArmy her entire army]], [[ScarsAreForever permenantly scarring their bodies]], and [[SealedEvilInACan leaving them imprisoned in a volcano for hundreds of years.]] ''[[UpToEleven With a single attack]]''. Comparing the army-busting WaveMotionGun spell to the small beam she used again Chrysalis in the show, it's clear Celestia was indeed holding back.]]

** When Guts first encountered the holy iron chain knights, he was heavily injured and exhausted from his fight with Rosine. As such, he was weak enough for them to capture. When he encounters them again, some of them remark that his performance was nothing close to the first time.

* In the anime ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', Casca actually loses and needs rescuing from her first battle with Adon Corbowitz. While tending to her Guts notes blood between her thighs and comments to himself how it must be hard for a woman mercenary. The next time she and Adon meet, the beatdown goes the other way.
** It's also a ChekhovsGun, as she's seen being 'out of it' earlier. Furthermore, as in case the viewer doesn't get it, Adon says, when being beat down: "YOU HAD PMS!?"

* ''Inverted'' the Volume 3 finale of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', where Cinder is only able to defeat [[spoiler:Pyrrha due to having stolen the Fall Maiden's powers]]. It's very clear that if not for that, [[spoiler:Pyrrha]] would have won.

* In ''ComicBook/BatmanAndRobinEternal'', Cassandra Cain makes short work of Dick Grayson. However, he was ambushed, already injured, and underestimated her skills. She does noticeably less well later against Jason Todd, who had fewer disadvantages. To complicate things, Dick says afterward that Cass was just testing them and wasn't fighting to her full abilities since doing so would've killed them.
