* In ''Series/TrueBlood'', Sam angrily threatens Marcus with a gun after Marcus kidnapped Emma. Marcus calls him a coward and a weakling, saying if he didn't have a gun, he wouldn't stand a chance against him. Sam proves him wrong by putting the gun away and kicking his ass.

* Blackbeard of ''OnePiece'' tends to do this with his opponents, since he specifically got ahold of a [[PowerupFood Devil Fruit]] gives him the power to negate the powers of anyone he has physical contact with. Of course, he then tried it on Whitebeard, quite forgetting that the guy was the WorldsStrongestMan, [[LargeAndInCharge frikken huge]], and carries a [[BladeOnAStick rather large bisento]]. Whitebeard turns the situation around quickly, [[CurbstompBattle very nearly kills Blackbeard when he has access to his powers again]], and only fails to do so because [[DirtyCoward Blackbeard]] [[CombatPragmatist called in his entire crew to back him up at the last second.]]

* In the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' series, the main character Tavi has spent his entire life without the Phlebotinum everyone else in Alera has -- entities called furies which grant power over various elements (water, earth, air, fire, metal). Alera's technology completely relies on them, down to the level of turning on a light. He learns to survive and prosper through his native wit. [[spoiler:He starts gaining the abilities at the end of the third book.]]

* An odd subversion of the self-inflicted version happens in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Eleventh Hour," where the newly regenerated Doctor muses that he has no TARDIS (it's busy rebuilding itself) and no sonic screwdriver (it was destroyed). However, rather than feeling emasculated, he uses it as a sort of self DareToBeBadass.

** Part of a crisis of faith in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''. Terry begins to wonder if he's worthy of wearing the suit or if it's the suit that makes him a hero. Due to an AI infiltrating and taking over the batsuit, Terry ends up having to fight it to prevent a major catastrophe. Partly averted in that Terry uses a bunch of Bruce's old gear to do it and has been shown to be training under Bruce's tutelage.

** Later series would {{Avert}} this trope in a much straight forward example by having Ben take self-defense classes, allowing him to better handle himself whenever he's cut off from the Omnitrix or it runs out of power at an inconvenient moment.
