* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', the young rookie superhero [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker]] ultimately joins [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]]'s pro-Registration forces at the climax, and manages to hold his own in combat against several experienced adult heroes during the battle at the airport. In the direct followup, ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', Tony outright says at one point that he only let the underaged Peter join him during that battle because he knew that his old friend [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] [[ThouShaltNotKill would never seriously injure another hero]], [[WouldNotHurtAChild let alone a teenager]]. When Peter goes up against the experienced criminal Adrian Toomes--[[WouldHurtAChild who has no such scruples]]--[[RealityEnsues reality quickly ensues]].

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/1/Reaching-for-a-Dream Reaching for a Dream]]'' Naruto gets ambushed by Orochimaru (who not only has a powerful new body but has also learned [[SuperMode Sage Mode]]) then shortly afterwards Itachi and Kisame come to collect the Kyuubi. While Orochimaru does flee when he realizes Itachi and Kisame have arrived and Naruto does manage to kill Kisame, Itachi's still alive (though injured) and Naruto's completely out of juice. He's left with no other option than to limp away and hope that either Itachi collapses before he does.

** Much earlier, Naruto won handily against Zabuza because the latter got too caught up in the fight to remember the gravity seals on his sword weighing him down.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', two of Brienne's big victories over renowned fighters have those fighters under severe handicap; Jaime is supposed to be one of the best warriors in the realm but has his hands tied together, is weak from almost a year of imprisonment and had no armour, and Sandor Clegane, who is one of the strongest and most fearsome fighters in the realm, able to held his own against his brother Gregor and defeat Beric Dondarrion, is suffering from a severe infected neck wound and fever. Loras Tyrell, on the other hand, [[AvertedTrope loses to her fair and square.]] Although he still sort of counts just not being that good of a fighter compared to his book version; his only on-screen victory is a joust where he cheats.

Jaime is supposed to be one of the best warriors in the realm but has his hands and ankles tied together, is weak from almost a year of imprisonment with inadequate food and exercise, making him completely out of practice and had no armour, armour. The fight in the books is much closer; Jaime holds his own and even gains the upper hand (despite the presence of his manacles) until he realizes that in his weakened state, Brienne is stronger than him (this is notable, because his great physical strength has been mentioned before). The fight goes on until he slips on wet stones, allowing Brienne to get a victory... just before the Bloody Mummers show up. Sandor Clegane, who is one of the strongest and most fearsome fighters in the realm, able to held his own against his brother Gregor and defeat Beric Dondarrion, is suffering from a severe infected neck wound and fever.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' for UsefulNotes/{{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, resulting in weakened attacks and a tendancy to cower with fear and beg for his mother. 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.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', interestingly, has a literal example of this. BonusBoss [[spoiler:The Reaper]] can actually catch the flu if fought under specific weather conditions, making what's normally a very difficult fight very easy.
* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, in the rare cases where a mortal directly contends with a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]], said Prince is either weakened (such as manifesting on Mundus, the mortal plane, where metaphysical laws typically weaken their power), is WillfullyWeak, or said mortal has been empowered by one of the [[SaintlyChurch Divines]] or another Prince.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and its spinoffs, Cloud's first victory over Sephiroth can be chalked up to this. Despite his overwhelming physical superiority and experience advantage, [[spoiler:he was in the midst of a psychotic breakdown, he had already been worn down by a duel with Zack Fair, Cloud took him completely by surprise and dealt a devastating sword blow to his midsection to open the battle, and he fatally underestimated Cloud's resolve to defeat him]].

* Sanguinius of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' was often regarded as the most technically brilliant fighter among the Primarchs. But even he was not immune to fatigue. His sheer exhaustion from the Siege Of Terra (In addition to fighting [[TheBerserker Angron]] to a draw) led to his defeat at the hands of Horus. At full strength, it's highly likely Horus would have been slain then and there.

* After he became Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA World Heavyweight Champion the first time, Wrestling/LouThesz had very few losses where that or any other title was on the line, he wasn't going into the match injured, and a {{rules lawyer}} was not in effect(Dick Hutton, Wrestling/{{Rikidozan}}, Gene Kiniski, El Canek, Gama Singh, about one memorable case for each decade!) and in one of the cases where he was injured the "loss" was technically a draw(Eduado Carpentier).
