* The Franchise/SoulSeries makes a case for a perfectly mundane character laking a Required Secondary Skill: while Cassandra is plenty proficient with the weapons she "borrows" from her sister, she doesn't know how to take care of them. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation Not normally an issue]], [[RuleOfFunny except]] during her ending of ''Soul Calibur 3'' where [[spoiler:her sword breaks after being used to shatter Soul Edge, and Sophitia catches her trying to hide it after a bad patch job and sends her straight to the forge to fix it properly. Cut to Cassandra having a sobbing fit on the forge floor, sword still broken, wailing that she doesn't know how to fix it.]]

** Having an absurdly high Acrobatic level, as Icarian Flight gives you, actually ''does'' grant you the required secondary power of protecting against falling damage[[note]]How far you have to fall to take falling damage scales up at a rate higher than the rate how high you can jump increases, and at 125 Acrobatics -- 25 above the base cap -- there is no fall damage. Icarian Flight increases Acrobatics by ''500''[[/note]]. The problem with the Scrolls is that they let you jump so high and far that they wear off ''before you land''... You ''can'' use another scroll just prior to hitting the ground, but keep in mind there's only three of them in the entire game.

*** According to the Pokédex, some Ditto have trouble with the whole "conservation of mass" thing, resulting in them retaining their size when they transform.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': Averted, at least in some versions. Dragons are immune to their own fire, but not any fires started by it.

* ''GuildWars2'''s recent ''Path of Fire'' expansion adds mounts with special movement abilities to explore the new maps. The Springer is the second mount unlocked, its special ability is a very high charged jump. It also comes with a very high tolerance to fall damage (it needs to fall from very high before taking any damage at all), for a pretty obvious reason.

* Elemental-themed VideoGame/{{Warframe}}s aren't immune to their own elements; eg. an Ember can take fire damage (but gains a damage increase when on fire), a Frost can have his shields reduced or be slowed by cold and a Volt can be electrocuted by a electrical trap.

** It's also pretty obvious that Tails has not only some kind of healing ability, but an anchoring one as well, explaining why his tails stay attached to him whenever he flies. He's also been shown to be incredibly durable otherwise. Likewise, his tails must also be very strong to achieve flight (with ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' having him carry himself, Sonic and Knuckles simultaneously) as proved in this [[Because Science video https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjRyZDv3aXWAhXBNSYKHdiUBtQQtwIILjAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DBFlk1LehjwA&usg=AFQjCNFXNX3lnamiLEhOjuIf4AtyF_quGA]]. Additionally, his tails being able to support his flight basically means they are very strong, which explains how he can use them as very effective [[TailSlap offensive weapons]], even against robots.

** Ditto and Mew can physically transform into any other species of Pokémon, but when turning into something like Wailord or Groudon they surely have a way to defeat the whole Conservation of Mass thing.

** Ditto and Mew can physically transform into any other species of Pokémon, but when turning into something like Wailord or Groudon they surely have a way to defeat the whole Conservation of Mass thing. Conceivably, Mew can project an image of the mon it's transforming into on its subject's mind as well as the attacks its using and the requisite amount of pain and effects from them. Ditto, though...
