* ''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 ''Literature/ThePrince'', Machiavelli says that Cesar Borgia (a RealLife example of MagnificentBastard) revealed to him that his multiple enemies managed to defeat him only because he was seriously sick when they did it. If not for this, he could have defeated them.

* In ''Literature/ThePrince'', Machiavelli says that Cesar Borgia (a RealLife example of MagnificentBastard) revealed to him that his multiple enemies managed to defeat him only because he was seriously sick when they did it. If not for this, he could have defeated them. However, as the Prince is anti-authoritarian, pro-democratic political satire, it's likely this was Machiavelli making fun of a known despot.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Black Star's failure to use Soul Menace against Kid is actually a product of his inability to deal with the [[TheWorfEffect worfing]] that he's noticed he was being subject to. And THOSE losses were caused by him losing confidence in himself for not being able to master [[DeadlyUpgrade Shadow Star]].

** Much earlier on, Maka, Soul, Black Star and Tsubaki were fighting against [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Free]], where the flu was affecting ''all'' the fighters. Black Star and Tsubaki were suffering from the aforementioned inability to master Shadow Star, Maka and Soul were dealing with personal issues that went so far as to affect their ability to function properly as Meister and Weapon, and Free was learning first-hand that [[RealityEnsues spending 200 years in a jail cell plays havoc on your ability to properly use your magic]]. The only reason the heroes won was because their flu wasn't as bad and/or they overcame it, while Free literally lost [[AttackBackfire because his magic backfired on him at the wrong moment]]. Lucky that he's [[CompleteImmortality immortal]].



* In the Nirvana arc of ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Jellal Fernandez, one of the most powerful characters in the setting, is taken out off-panel by Midnight. Erza thinks to herself that this is because Jellal hadn't fully recovered from waking up from his coma.
** Later, Ultear manages to defeat [[spoiler:the Black Wizard Zeref]], who had previously been talked up as one of the most powerful and dangerous wizards of all time. [[spoiler:Zeref]] comes back later and explains that, as his magic is meant for causing grievous harm, he can only use it to his full extent when he's willing to kill his opponent, which he then proceeds to prove.

* In ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'', this is how the Orochi beats the Tokugawa. They arrive and launched their attack on Edo castle just in time when [[{{Badass}} Honda Tadakatsu]] is away scouting the area. Considering Tadakatsu is often considered ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors''' [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Lu Bu]], the battle might have a different outcome if he is ever present.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', Yuzu loses her fight with Masumi due to the fact that she'd been conflicted over the mysterious boy resembling Yuya, causing her to make incredible novice mistakes. She feels horrible over it due to the fact that it forces a tie-breaker when Gongenzaka forces a draw in his match, leaving You Show and LDS 1-1, a match that, had Reiji not forfeited in a major hurry, would have surely went to LDS. When Yuzu and Masumi have their rematch in the Maiami City Tournament, Yuzu gives Masumi a great fight and comes up on top.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hats are initially unable to defeat the [=CP9=], and while they are not yet using the techniques they use to defeat their opponents in later battles, Nami suggests that they weren't fighting at their full potential because they were still unsure whether Robin had betrayed them. Once they realize that she did what she did for their sake, they are able to fight to their full power to rescue her (Strangely enough, Sanji knows Robin's reasons and still is unable to defeat Blueno, but later defeats the far more powerful Jyabura). Luffy also admits he wasn't at his fullest because he [[{{Pun}} wasn't full]] and just fought Wanze, whow as a relatively weak enemy but managed to thrash Sanji a fair amount before he started using knives.
