* ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers'', despite being set in a VR World involving Gunpla has a ''load'' of this trope.
** One of the big problems plaguing the Gunpla Battle Nexus Online game is the advent of Break Decals, illegal modifications that make your Gunpla stronger in game. Many Divers become Mass-Divers because they're either tempted with the idea of having more power despite being so lower ranked or so demoralized by their lack of skill they take it to boost themselves up. Even worse, the administrators are terribly lax in their ability to curb them, forcing actual players to stop them themselves.
** Despite being a video game, the Mobile Suits run on a lot of reality - Riku, holding his friends Yukio and Sarah in the hands of his Gundam 00 Diver, accidentally ''dumps'' them during a roll; another friend, Momoka, drops like a stone because her rental suit, a Kapool, has no flying capabilities when she first launches; and a villain is temporarily stopped when his MS is clogged up with sand in a desert area.

* During the first arc on Wall Reiss, Eren gives a RousingSpeech to his unit that they can take the Titans if they just stick together, even joking they can get a kill count going. No sooner then they go into action, near all of them are decimated. Sure they trained for this, but training doesn't equal actual experience on the battlefield and the Titans turn out to be more unpredictable then they realize.

* When Wall Rose fell, the refugees were forced to evacuate into Wall Reiss. This ended up with extra mouths to feed and soon there wasn't enough food to go around. Even worse when they tried to plant for food and nothing grew. As such to thin out the numbers, a few people were drafted into helping to fight the Titans, Armin's grandfather among them.

* A harsh truth the regiment realize in a war: That you'll have to leave behind your friends to either save yourself and/or continue your mission. And only when the latter is completed can you grieve for the fallen.

* What happens when two nations spew a century worth of propaganda at each other? [[spoiler: You naturally have the other assuming their the bad guy and are "full of demons", only to discover a harsh truth when visiting the other side. Reiner realized this upon going to the Walls and finding the people there weren't any different then his homeland. When he finally returned home he was full of SurvivorGuilt and self-loathing for what he had to do and the people he had to betray.]]

[[folder: Attack On Titan]]
* HeroicSacrifice doesn't always play out the way the person wanted to. Those who take this route often find out at the last moment that they don't want to die or that their last moments will be horrifying and messy.
* Even though mankind is facing extinction at the hands of man-eating monsters, everyone doesn't magically forget their interpersonal conflicts.
* Titan biology is affected by this. The Colossal Titan is so huge that it moves very slowly. The Armored Titan plating insulates it and it can make the Titan overheat if not removed. [[spoiler: Rod Reiss's Titan]] is so large that it cannot support its own weight and can't walk, only by crawling on its stomach.
* The battle between [[spoiler: Eren and Annie]] shows what happens when a fight with two giant monsters occur in a densely populated area. The fight only lasts a few minutes but there are over a hundred causalities caught in the crossfire.
* People who you actively tried to murder will ''not'' [[EasilyForgiven come to your aid]] when you are crying and begging for them to save you, as [[spoiler: Bertolt]] found out the hard way.
* The swords that the military uses are very sharp but are realistically very brittle. Each soldier carries at least 6 pairs at any given time because the swords are prone to break or become dull with each swing.
* Trying to take on an entire airship of enemy soldiers by yourself will at best result in you killing a few soldiers before being overwhelmed by the sheer number of the enemy, as [[spoiler: Gabi]] found out. The latter is quickly captured and beaten and would have been thrown off the ship to their death for killing the enemy's comrades if not for [[spoiler: Jean]] stopping them.

* Initially after Ichigo uses his powers to save his family from the Hollow attacking them, he wanted nothing more to do with Soul Reaping and refuses when Rukia tries to have him continue in her stead while she regains her powers. He only relents when he sees a child spirit in danger and even then is reluctant to do the job until the incident with Grand Fisher, which gives him a much more personal reason to keep going.
* When fighting against Hollow Sora, Orihime's brother, Ichigo has a clean shot at his neck. But ultimately hesitates and get smacked aside for his trouble. This was someone he somewhat knew in life and, still being new to being a Soul Reaper, he's not prepared to deal with such encounters.

* ''Manga/Overlord2012'': An odd case since "reality" is not our world but one where magic exists, but Ainz still finds out that despite the numerous similarities to the VR MMORPG he was in, he's no longer in the game.
** Adventurers are not called upon to do anything from gathering herbs to repelling armies to saving the world like any self-respecting RPG character, but instead are a kind of non-centralized paramilitary force who take out monsters attacking villages if the army can't do it, and as a result, tend to be viewed with suspicion as mercenaries by some (and the government, having little interest in heavily-armed combat veterans they don't control, makes sure to keep it that way).
** Ainz' warrior persona is seen as UnskilledButStrong by more competent warriors, since as a lich (or out of VR), he has no experience with melee combat. [[NormalFishInATinyPond The main reason he's successful]] is that his level is about 3 times as high as the new world's legendary heroes, meaning his physical strength and agility are similarly overpowering for normal people (even Ainz' magic skill were geared for roleplaying rather than combat, so a magic caster of similar level would likely outclass him).
** An innkeeper preemptively states that you can't just barge into people's rooms. Something obvious to normal members of society, a deeply-ingrained and hard-to-control instinct for RPG players for who KleptomaniacHero is a way of life.
** MedievalStasis is explained by the fact that magic allows for BoringButPractical spells such as accelerating harvests and removing the need to let fields rest for a year.
** Back in YGGDRASSIL, Ainz Aool Gown was one of the top-ranked guilds and had never been defeated (the best attempt involved 1500 invaders and they only made it a little past halfway through guild headquarters)... in no small part due to their unabashed reliance on cash items, some of the more hardline players pouring a third of their income into improving the guild.

** As Doppio shows us, using anything as a phone, from toys to ice cream to frogs, is going to net some unwanted attention. Making the ringing sound yourself won't make it any better. [[spoiler: Granted, it was to get in touch with Diavolo, since his actual phone got destroyed, but still.]]
